I’m a sucker for bath stuff and lotions, I have like a million and one but the truth is they’re not all created equal. Each individual beauty product that you own has it’s own advantages and disadvantages. I can usually tell which ones I like the most by what I actually have left in a couple of months (or by the end of the month depending on the product).
Body wash is one of those things that I tend to switch up a lot. I like getting things that have different scents and to be honest I tend to gravitate to what’s on sale. I used to think that it didn’t really matter. It’s just body wash right?
Just like my lotions and other bath items all body washes are not created equal! As you know, Dove sent me their new body washes to try out along with a comfy robe and a SpaFinder gift card. It’s been about a month of using the Dove Body Wash and I’ve loved my experience so far. First off I love the scent I got, Cucumber and Green Tea. And I love the other scents it comes in:
The new formula contains NutriumMoisture that has 100% natural moisturizers that your skin absorbs easily and replenishes lipids lost during cleansing. It helps keep the skin smooth and nourished
The body wash I was using right before this was a body wash from Bath & Body Works, I honestly loved the way it smelled but I didn’t realize that it wasn’t doing anything for my skin to moisturize it. This video helped me to see that! You can see how your current body wash compares here. Or right here:
Basically the ingredients in the Bath & Body Works body wash strips your skin more than the new Dove Body Wash does! Switching has made a huge difference for me. It’s been really cold lately and this is around the time that my skin usually gets super dry but that hasn’t happened at all. I also love that even though it’s a mild formula which is great for my sensitive skin there is a still a nice lather. When there isn’t a nice lather I tend to use even more which doesn’t exactly help my wallet! And thanks to my nice comfy WARM robe I’ve been more inclined to lotion up after I get out of the shower instead of rushing to get dressed so I can get worm which is of course helping as well in the moisture department!
I LOVE my new robe it’s seriously the only thing that fits me at this point in my pregnancy (small towels be damned).
