Review: Dove Body Washes with Nutrium Moisture

Apologies: I used to put prices as a service for those who wanted to know, but I no longer do it. ^__^ I received 3 bottles of Dove shower foam from Dove's marketing representatives at the end of last year. With all the shower foams I had on my bathroom shelves, it took some time before I could get to start using these, but when I started, I couldn't stop! I personally adore Dove's "Global Campaign for Real Beauty" and "Beyond Stereotypes" philosophy that is used in their advertising campaigns. I'm also a long-time user of Dove shower foams. In the past, I used Dove exclusively. Especially when I'm on a budget, it's a shower foam that I depend on for value-for-money. They never fail to perform by cleaning thoroughly, with a soft luxurious scent but never stripping the skin of its moisture. I never feel deprived when I use Dove shower foams. (And NO I'm not paid to say this! :D) Anyway, I've finally used these 3 new formulations for a sufficient period of time for me to give a proper review. I can only say, "I LOVE THEM!" These shower foams have a new Nutrium Moisture formulation that promises to "restore skin’s natural moisture while cleansing (with body washes). Minimizing protein and lipid damage while cleansing is critical for maintaining healthy skin." According to Dove, NEW Dove Body Wash with NutriumMoisture™: • Repairs and maintains skin’s protective layer during cleansing • Unlike moisturizers in other body washes, Dove Body Wash with NutriumMoisture™ penetrates surface skin deep down to replenish and nourish • Clinically proven to significantly reduce dryness and improve moisturization • Available in Deep Moisture, Sensitive Skin and Gentle Exfoliating After using all three variations, I find them all equally good with subtle but significant enough differences between them to suit varying needs. What I like:
  • There is no residue after showering with the body washes. Unlike other moisturising foams I've used, these leave the skin thoroughly clean but is non-drying. I don't see any patches of dry skin or lines on my body, instead, the skin looks soft and plump.
  • Each variation has the base scent that is typical Dove, but there are some differences in the fragrance for you to be able to tell the difference between them.
  • The scrub variation is soft and non-scratchy but the beads are sufficiently "rough" to provide a nice scrub experience.
  • Deep Moisture is more creamy than Sensitive Skin variation, so you can choose which you prefer.
What I dislike:
  • I don't think these formulations are available in Singapore yet! Haha. :D
I enjoyed using these so much, I got a large bottle of Dove Firming Moisture. I'm loving it so far, though I find they don't have the same moisturising effect as Nutrium Moisture, so I'm looking forward to having that formulation in Singapore soon!

hi, no i don't use their shampoo, i don't think it's any good haha, cos they're more of a body wash brand in my opinion and i love their washes because they really suit my dry skin better than most other foams.

Like ning*star I used to use the shampoo too but stopped when my boyfriend wouldn't come near me cause he didn't like the smell. ><

But I might try the body wash when it comes to Malaysia!~
