I was recently sent a box of Dove beauty products in exchange for my honest opinion. All views are my own. No affiliate links have been used in this post.
I have been a user of Dove products for a long time, well before it became a beauty staple for today’s women. In university, I started using Dove shampoo, conditioner and antiperspirant and I never really stopped.
The main reasons for using Dove are that they work great for my hair/skin and they are highly moisturizing. Way back in the day, Dove bar soap was known for its nice scent, and the fact that it is made with moisturizing cream. When looking at the beauty bar that I received, it appears that not much has changed. It still smells great, and it is the best choice for using in my bath. I love how it makes my skin feel nice and soft, and it leaves a nice (but not overpowering) clean scent. For the shower, I use the Dove Body Wash. I was sent the Purely Pampering Shea Butter and Vanilla scented body wash. Not only did it smell AMAZING but it also left my skin silky smooth. It definitely was a pampering experience!
I was also sent a bottle of Dove Shampoo and Conditioner, a new formulation called Dove Nutritive Therapy Nourishing Oil Care. It promises to remove frizz by 100%. This was a huge bonus for me because my hair is really thick and frizzy. After using this shampoo and conditioner only one time, I was stunned. My hair looked so soft, and the frizz was definitely at a minimum. I was so bowled over, I chucked my old bottles of shampoo and conditioner in the trash, because they were doing such an inferior job at controlling the frizz.
Last but not least, I was also sent a container of Dove’s new Dry Spray Antiperspirant in Original Scent. You have probably seen the commercials on television for this product. It uses a non-CFC formulation for the spray mechanism, and this allows the product to go on dry. It is an improvement, in my opinion, over the sticks and gel type antiperspirants. When it goes on, you don’t notice any white residue on your skin. However, I must caution that you should still wait a couple minutes for the product to settle, as I found that it left white marks on my black shirt. (I put on my shirt literally seconds after using the dry spray) However, that was really a minor complaint. I am a total convert to dry spray, and Dove does it right. In addition to the Original Scent which I was given, I also have purchased the Cucumber and Green Tea Scent. Both were very nice smelling, the original with a light floral scent was very pretty.
Overall I LOVED the Dove beauty products that I was given, both for their pleasant scent (all), their moisturizing properties (shampoo, conditioner, beauty bar and body wash) and the way they keep me dry and fresh (dry spray).
