Dove Visible Care Body Wash & a Chance to Win a $500 Spafinder GC

July 20, 2012

When we moved to El Paso last year, my skin went from Colorado soft to Sahara desert dry. I was able to use all organic products there, they might have dried out my skin some but a little lotion now and then fixed that.

Here? I had to start trying all kinds of new products labeled, “Extra Moisturizing”. In fact, it was so bad one of my friends send me lotion in the mail as a joke.

Only the entire bottle was gone in 2 weeks.

So when Dove sent me their Visible Care Body Wash to try out, I honestly wasn’t sure if it would matter any. We have 4% humidity here on a good day unless it’s raining. Would something that gets rinsed off change the tight feeling my skin felt all the time? Could you really get visibly more beautiful skin from a body wash? Wasn’t that a tag line pretty much every skin product used?

I’ve been using the Dove Visible Care Renewing Crème Body Wash for a little over a week now. The bottle says you’ll see “Visible Skin Improvement” within a week.

I actually have.

Dove Visible Care Body Wash is a revolutionary line of premium body wash, and it contains the highest concentration of NutriumMoisture technology across the Dove portfolio. I can honestly say that my skin is different after a week of using the Renewing Crème wash. I noticed it because usually on the days the sitter is here and I get to write at Starbucks for a couple of hours – I sit there the entire time with my scaly legs that I forgot to lotion staring up at me as a reminder of why I should have worn pants. The last couple of times? I never gave it a thought – they felt soft and looked healthy.

Even Sam has noticed. I didn’t tell him about the Dove campaign, not because it’s this huge surprise or anything (because what man on earth is going to be super excited over his wife using a new body wash?), but he noticed anyway. I was getting Bella out of the car the other day and he reached to grab her from my arms, stopping to say, “Your skin is really soft.”

Honest to goodness people.

I think the only cons are that the body wash product is a little thin, so it pours really quickly out of the dispenser, and that the dispenser is on the bottom. Great for when you’re low on the product as it sits there, not so great when it’s full and the cap opens and it dumps out.

However, I really like this product. I’ll buy it on my own when it runs out. I’m also bringing it to BlogHer with me in a travel dispenser. Because yes, it’s that amazing.

    I honestly don’t take great care of my skin apart from washing & moisturizing my face in the morning and before I go to bed. I only use lotion after I shave my legs, which only happens about once a week (if that!) now that I have a baby. Usually my husband and I buy body wash in bulk at Sam’s Club, but I might branch out and this one a try.

    Dove is doing a great job utilizing their blog reviews. Two people on my Blog reader have reviewed this so far.

    I moved to Texas from Arkansas– not a big jump in miles but man. Texas is SO dry. It’s just brutal on your skin! I also have to wear sunscreen every day of the year which I never had to do before. I got sunburned this past January. Ridiculous.

    My mom and I make goat’s milk soap from goats that I got for a 4-H project. We have actually learned that most of the soap that you buy in the store is really detergent. Glycerin that hydrates your skin is taken out of it, put into the moisterizer you now urgently require, and the company sells two products instead of one.
    Dove is actually the only soap that has the recommended pH for healthy skin! NH has very dry winters and my hands get washed a lot so our soap is incredibly helpful!

    Michigan winters are very dry and even though I have oily skin I find myself having to be vigilant about moisturizing!

    Winter here in WI is horrible! My skin actually burns sometimes!
