I got to try out a new body wash from Dove in the last couple of weeks. Dove® VisibleCare™ Toning Crème Body Wash is the one I received in the mail, which is supposed to promote skin’s elasticity and strength. But there is also a “Renewing” (to nourish and replenish skin) and a “Softening” (to soften skin and dry spots) version.
The timing was great because I had just run out of my usual body wash – the same thing I’ve been using since probably high school. I’m not the type of person to lather up with every shower, because overwashing tends to dry out my skin, and water does the job just fine. I do, however, like to use body wash as a shaving lather.
This one claims to give you visibly more beautiful skin in a week (Is that of daily use?), so you can show off your skin now that the weather has warmed up and you’re not wearing pants and sweaters anymore. Apparently the NutriumMoisture technology does cool stuff to keep your skin healthier when compared with other body washes. I tried to look up how and why this is supposed to work, but couldn’t find much other than this confusing video.
I can’t tell you whether the body wash made my skin prettier or not… and I always use coconut oil on my skin after showering, which is GREAT for moisturizing. I’ve also been spending lots of time in the sun, and having a natural healthy tan (not some crazy “I lay in the sun for 4 hours every day sunning myself” tan… just a normal reaction to the summer sun) does make my skin lovely.
I can tell you however, that the body wash had a pleasant smell, and worked great as a shaving lather. (I had been using my epilator all winter and spring, but now that it’s summer, I’ve wanted to actually shave… in case you’re going “What?? I thought Emily had only used her epilator since December!” if you’re one of the people I’ve raved to about it. I still love it. ) It was lovely to have some time to myself in the shower and come out feeling refreshed.
My husband’s review of it was, “I went in the shower dirty. I used the soap and it cleaned me. I came out clean.” which is pretty much the gist of it…
