Dove Beauty Bath Indulging Cream
Dove is one of my favourite body and haircare brands from the drugstore/high street, mainly because the products smell amazing and they are just so effective for me and this one is no different.
About the product
I have the massive 500ml bottle, which I have used up, it is the indulging cream version. It does contain sodium laureth sulphate which some people are allergic too but it is so common in body/bath products - in this product I don’t have a problem with it personally. I love the packaging, it is quick and easy to use.
The scent of dove body products is just amazing, as well as some of their haircare, it is the gorgeous original Dove scent. It smells so fresh, clean and comforting to me, it smell like linen and fresh bedding.
Using the product and results
The product is a thick creamy body wash really, I only use it as a body wash in the shower although you could use it as a bubble bath product. It smells so gorgeous when I use it, its just heavenly! The cream feels really soft and luxe on the skin, it cleanses the skin well without stripping it or drying it out which is fantastic. It doesn’t irritate my skin or cause any negative effects. It lathers well, probably because of the sodium laureth sulphate which is a lathering agent. It washes off quickly and easily, it is just a gorgeous product and the 500ml bottle lasted me so long!
Price and availability
It is currently on sale on the Boots website for £2 for the 500ml bottle which is fantastic but you can also buy Dove products from supermarkets, superdrug, pharmacies and online. I find that Dove is a tiny bit more expensive than other high street bodycare brands (unless it is on offer) but it is fantastic.
Quick/easy to use and it doesn’t irritate my skin
Works well and doesn’t strip/dry out the skin
Fantastic price when on offer
None in my opinion
Thank you for reading my review
I have always loved that soapy smell of Dove products. Nothing can compare. When it comes to body products, I admit to being a bit of a Dove junkie. My all time favorite Dove product has to be the Beauty Bath. I remember my great grandma giving me a bottle of this as a gift when I was younger and I haven't stopped buying it since.
Dove Beauty Bath is an indulging bath creme which claims to contain 1/4 moisturising cream to help keep your skin soft. It is available in many drugstores and supermarkets. In Boots it retails for £3.15 but is often on promotional offer and can be found in cheaper discount stores such as Savers. You recieve a hefty 500ml of the product.
To use the product, you pour under warm running water. I like to give the water a swirl with my hands to make the creme foam up to create more bubbles. You will notice the lovely smell which is like soap or fresh linen. At first use, I remember being surprised at the bubbles because it states to be a bath creme and not a bubble bath. The bubbles do make it better.
When I'm in the bath, I somehow feel 'comfier' and more relaxed when I use this. It's almost like when you get into a warm cosy bed after being outside in the freezing cold. It makes me feel like I'm wrapped in a soapy blanket.
After using, my skin always feels incredibly clean and silky soft. I wouldn't say that my skin is particularly moisturised- I do still need to use a body lotion (Dove, of course), but it's definitely smoother and has a lovely soft scent to it.
The product feels very gentle on my skin, as do all Dove products, but my boyfriend who has sensitive skin refuses to use any Dove products because they make him itch. For this reason, I probably wouldn't recommend it to anyone with sensitive skin.
In conclusion, I would recommend this product if you are looking for a bubble bath that will help keep your skin soft and smooth.
I'm a big fan of Dove products due to the fact that they leave my skin feeling silky soft and smooth and as a result, I have quite a few in my rather large stash of toiletries. Whilst I have enjoyed using their body washes and shower creams for many years it was only recently that I discovered their Beauty Bath Indulging Cream with this review discussing my experience with using.
The packaging is very appealing to the eye, as is the case with all Dove products with the bath cream being of a unique tear shape. I favour the fact that Dove do not go overboard with marketing clutter, which is the case with many brands and the simplistic appearance of a pure white bottle with touches of blue and gold create a classy image. One of the reasons why I choose Dove products is due to their inclusion of a quarter moisturising cream, which in addition to providing an element of luxury enables their products to be very caring and moisturising for my skin.
I would describe the skin on my body as normal with the exception of a few dry patches, which I experience on my elbows and knees, so a little extra hydration is required for these areas. I find the flip up lid a little awkward to open, as it is quite rigid and therefore, requires a little pressure to be unclipped and lifted. However, closing is considerably easy, as it simply needs to be pressed down until it clicks into place.
The pure white cream offers a fairly thick consistency, which I would describe as slightly thicker than a body lotion. Consequently, dispensing a small amount of the beauty bath into the running bath water is easy, as I am able to control the required amount, as opposed to the product running out at its own free will. Those consumers who are familiar with the Dove brand will be aware of the unique scent of their products and I would describe Beauty Bath as similar to that of freshly washed linen, which has been blowing gently in the breeze.
I need to dispense only a small amount into my bath water in order for a mountain of soft, fluffy white bubbles to appear with the delightful and luxurious aroma filling my bathroom. I consider my bath times to be my quiet time where I can lie in the soothing hot bath water, as I chill out and attempt to let the worries of my day vanish. Dove Beauty Bath does not disappoint, as just as the name would suggest, this is most definitely an indulging cream and I always feel totally pampered when using.
The bubbles do not disperse when adding soap to the water and remain for the entirety of my bathing experience, which gives me the impression that it contains high quality ingredients. The moisturising cream content leaves my skin feeling silky soft and smooth and I read in beauty article some time ago that applying moisturisers to damp skin is more effective than applying to skin that is dry. I cannot speak of any sticky residue remaining on my skin and whilst my skin feels moisturised, unfortunately, the product is not effective for the few small areas where my skin is drier. However, I cannot admit to being disappointed, as I had not expected the cream bath to hydrate these areas, particularly as it is necessary to regularly apply body butters to achieve noticeable results.
As you have no doubt guessed, I am highly impressed with Dove's Beauty Bath Indulgent Cream and for that reason it receives five stars from me. The product is available in a 500 ml bottle and at the time of writing, the most competitive retailer is Superdrug where you can make a purchase for £1.50 as opposed to the normal price of £3.09.
Dove skin care products are one of my passions. If I buy any of the Dove skin care range for myself then I always take advantage of the many good offers in the supermarkets. The Dove Pro Age range comes top of my list but two large (500ml) bottles of the Unilever Dove Beauty Bath came my way courtesy of Santa. Our skin ages quickly so it is worth trying to moisturise and preserve it for as long as possible.
A 500 ml bottle of the Dove Beauty bath costs around £2.50. Now this may seem quite a high price to pay for a cream bath but the contents of the bottle go a very long way. I love the pure white plastic bottle, it looks so fresh and clean and it is the perfect bottle for a skin care product. As always Unilever have placed the a small golden dove on the front of the bottle and the remainder of the product information is in an elegant dark blue script. Although I personally would buy from the Dove Pro Age range I do think that the white packaging of the ordinary Dove skin care range is far more attractive. Dove Pro Age skin care products are packed in a chic but rather mature deep red.
Unilever have chosen a contemporary design and shape for the bottle. The thick plastic bottle looks smart, fresh, it is pleasantly shaped and easy to grasp. The bottle of Dove beauty bath has a flip top that is easy to open. Inside of the flip top there is a small hole that allows the beauty bath to flow out. This small opening is a great idea, skin care products that are placed into bottles with wide necks tend to pour out too easily and a lot of the lotion is wasted. Another good point is that the flip top can be levered off and this allows you to access the Dove beauty bath that sticks to the sides of the plastic bottle. Add a little warm water to the empty bottle, shake the bottle around and that ensures that none of the rich Dove beauty bath goes to waste.
Dove describe the beauty bath as an indulging cream. Most good skin care products are fairly indulgent but the Dove beauty bath is very luxurious. If you put your nose to the top of the bottle the thick beauty bath cream smells like liquid soap. The fresh sweet odour is lovely and very rich. The pure white thick creamy beauty bath has a very feminine fragrance. Dove state that one quarter of the cream comprises of moisturiser.
Dove recommend that you pour some of the beauty bath under the warm water as you are running the bath. The thick white moisturising cream does not instantly dissolve, you do need to whisk the cream with your hand to break it up. The sweet fragrance hits you immediately. You only need to use a little of the Dove beauty bath, a little goes a very long way. The thick skin care product produces a good amount of frothy lather but naturally that does fade as you bathe. The Dove beauty bath cream softens the water, the bath water feels silky and smooth.
After enjoying a long relaxing soak in the Dove beauty bath my skin feels fresh and fragrant. Up to a point my skin feels moisturised but I feel that fresh and fragrant are far better words to tell you how my skin feels. After bathing it is always good to use a moisturising cream anyway.
After running the bath water away you are able to tell that the Dove beauty bath is rich because the bath needs to be washed out well. The rich beauty bath tends to coat the surface of the bath leaving a slightly `fatty` layer in its wake. Cleaning the bath is well worth it, the Dove experience is superb.
From my point of view you cannot compare the Dove range to any other. This beauty bath is made so that we can pamper ourselves, it is definitely not going to be used when you bath the children. Time and time again I come across the Dove skin care range on special offer and this is the time to take advantage and stock up.
I've never really looked at dove products before as they don't tend to stand out on the shelf, but someone recommended I try this Beauty Bath so I decided to give it a whirl and I'm glad I did!
It only costs £2.59 for a big 500ml bottle so it works out at really good value for money. The bottle has a flip top lid to make it easier and more convenient to use. It's also easy to squeeze the cream out of the bottle even when you get down to the last drops.
It's a thick cream and when you pour some under the tap it instantly foams up into loads of thick bubbles. The scent is rich and creamy like Dove soap but with a floral scent to it as well. It's not a strong scent and I don't really notice it while I'm bathing to be honest.
You don't need to use much but I prefer to use a good amount so I get an ultra-luxurious bath overflowing with bubbles. The bubbles stay around for ages so you can have a nice long soak without them disappearing on you. It makes the water feel really silky and it's lovely to lie back in it and just relax.
I feel really pampered when I use this and I come out of the bath with my skin feeling silky and smooth. It says on the bottle that it contains 1/4 moisturising cream and I think this really works well as my skin feels so hydrated I don't need to moisturise afterwards. It doesn't leave a residue on my skin or leave me feeling greasy like other bath creams can.
Dove Beauty Bath Indulging Cream
I am quite a fan of a lot of the Dove skincare range, I own and use quite a few of their products on a regular basis. In my personally experience I have found that Dove as a brand offer great quality items that have never reacted badly with my sensitive skin. However, it wasn't until lately that I tried their beauty bath cream and I am certainly glad I did.
When I added this to the running water I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of bubbles, I do prefer a bath with bubbles. The cream lathered up very well and if anything I might have added a bit too much. When my husband came into the bathroom to see me he did have a slight smile at the fact you could only see my head and barely even that in the mountain of soft, beautifully smelling bubbles. I was in the bath for quite a while and the bubbles lasted well even with continual hot water top ups.
The bubble bath smells more or less exactly like Dove soap, which is great for me as I love that smell. The bath cream really did create a lovely aroma that was noticeable, but not overwhelming. Even after I was finished with my bath the Dove soap scent lingered for the rest of the evening, again great if like me you love that smell. As well as the lovely scent it also made the water feel really soft and left a lingering smoothness to my skin.
After using it my skin was left fragranced and feeling softer. That night I never bothered to apply a separate moisturiser and I was surprised to find that even the next morning my skin still felt lovely and soft. The fragrance also stayed for quite a while and when I got all tucked up in bed my husband noticed and remarked on the lovely fragrance my skin had. Overall I was really pleased with how moisturised it left my skin feeling with minimal effort from myself.
I bought mine from Tesco on a recent stock up of bathroom products, but I believe you can buy this from a wide range of stores. If I remember correctly then I paid around about £2 - £3 for it and I couldn't have been happier. I purchased the original beauty bath, there are other scents and options available within the range that I look forward to trying in the future. The packaging is nice, simple and very much in keeping with Dove's style. It is relatively quite sturdy as I managed to drop this bottle onto the floor and the lid, thankfully stayed firmly intact.
This gets a five out of five stars and I will definitely be using this again soon. I would happily recommend this product to anyone, especially if you like the scent of dove soap. It really does provide a nice bubble bath with the added benefit of leaving your skin smelling lovely and feeling pampered.
Use this luxurious bath cream in your bath and relax back into the creamy, elegantly fragranced, silky bubbles and let the sheer silkening moisturiser get to work.
I am a person who loves to lay back in the bath with a good book (especially if the kids are out with their dad) and this product from Dove is one of the nicest beauty baths I have come across. I usually use Radox but felt like a change and am glad I did.
The product is slightly off white in colour, and very creamy in texture. Only a small amount needs to be used, poured under running water to create a fragranced, plentiful bubble bath.
What I particularly love is the fragrance which smells like a wonderfully sophisticated yet subtle perfume. It really gives you the sense of opulence and the fragrance lingers afterwards on your skin and together with the product's cleansing and moisturising ingredients, your skin feels clean, pampered and moisturised and makes you feel relaxed yet uplifted at the same time. My skin did feel very smooth after my bath and I did not feel the need for extra body lotion although it will depend on your skin type as to whether you will find it necessary or not.
A 500ml bottle costs around £2.89 and can be purchased in supermarkets and chemists.
If you really want to pamper your skin whilst relaxing in the bath, I would highly recommend this product. Although quite expensive a little goes a long way so this bottle should last you a long, long time.
Thanks for reading. x
Price: £2.89 for 500ml
For: An indulgent bathing experience and pampered, soft skin
The packaging is a nice clean looking bottle in the usual dove colours of white and dark blue. I always think that Dove packaging looks quite luxury and expensive despite the low price tag, and this is no different. The bottle has a sturdy flip top was fastens very tightly, but could cause some people problems trying to open it.
It's a thick, creamy textured substance which definitely looks and feels as though it would be indulgent and pamper the skin. Pouring some under the running tap creates a nice amount of bubbles, though it does take a while for it to really get bubbling. The scent is the usual creamy Dove scent, but I don't really notice it after a few seconds, so it doesn't add to the experience.
The bubbles are not as thick and soft as I had anticipated, instead they are quite fine and thin, but densely packed. They do feel nice and soft against the skin and they last well in the bath before disappearing so you have time for a nice long soak in them before you're left with just plain old boring bath water.
I don't generally use bath bubbles as I find that on the whole they just irritate my sensitive skin, but this one is very kind and gentle and causes no irritation whatsoever. After I get out of the bath my skin feels much less dehydrated than when I bathe in plain water, instead feeling soft and lightly moisturised. I don't think it moisturises to any great extent, but there is a very noticeable difference in my skin when I use it compared to when I don't.
All in all I think this is a very good bath cream.
Thumbs up from me.
I received the Dove Beauty Bath Cream as part of a Christmas present last year and can happily say it was well received as a fond lover of Dove and its campaign for real women.
As you pour it in the water, I prefer to do it under the tap as it is running as it lathers up better, you are struck by the refreshing scent. It is light and very relaxing after a stressful day. I find the smell lingers in the bathroom afterwards and on my body putting me in a relaxed state of mind.
I find the bath cream lathers up really well, you only need a small amount but it produces lots of bubbles, which is perfect for me who loves a good old bubble bath.
The product leaves my skin feeling silky and soft after my bath and I find I don't need to moisturize afterwards as Dove products contain 25% moisturizers. I have sensitive skin and I find it doesn't irritate it, which is quite surprising for bubble bath when you have eczema.
Dove Beauty Bath comes in many different sizes, I was given the 500ml bottle and after a quick bit of research, I found it retails for around £2.89 and can be found in many pharmacies and supermarkets. I think I will buy a bottle for myself now as it is good value for money as a little goes a long way, it works and I support Doves campaign for real women.
In these harsh winter months when there is no money, no sunshine and nobody to do anything with, you often feel like getting into bed at half past four in the afternoon when it turns dark outside. I have recently taken to having two baths a day, as my hands and toes have been getting chilly and well, I need something to structure my day.
A normal bath in just plain old water is dull, so a bit of indulging is required every once in a while. I love to add things to my bath, whether it is products from Lush stores or drops of lavender to soothe the senses. I have tried a few Dove products and found them good for old, dry, cracked and withered skin. I am not old or withered, not am I especially cracked, but the Dove range does feel like you are applying cream all over you which is obviously a good thing.
You use this like a bubble bath, pour under warm water than froth around with the hand a bit to help disperse it evenly. The idea then is to get in and let the creamy mixture envelope you like some kind of ghoulish fog sweeping over your body. Nothing foggy here though, just a mild and nourishing bath mix which leaves the skin relaxed and soft and senses calm and genteel. You do not need a lot, just a capful to fill the bath up with. I am ashamed to say, this is perhaps more for older ladies, so a bloke should not admit to liking bath stuff so much, but it does leave you feeling lovely and you will feel compelled to keep stroking yourself after.
A bottle can cost up to three quid and should last about two months.
The first thing I think of when I think of Dove Bath Cream has got to be its absolutely amazing smell.
Most Dove products are of exceptionally high quality and this one is certainly no exception. This particular cream is used in the bath and unlike alot of bubble baths, this one does not leave your skin dry and feeling abit 'squeaky'.
This bath lotion is simple to apply - just add it to the running tap and there you have it. A wonderfully smelling bath that wont dry you out. I love the way this Dove product helps get you soft, moistured and of course clean! This is definately luxury product and too many of these can definately turn you spoilt.
The price of this is very fair for the quality of the product. However at between £2.50 to £3.50 you can sure get an alternative product. Especially now the country is acutually in recession. But hey some people like their luxuries.
As I have already mentioned, my favourite thing about this bath lotion is indeed its beautiful and relaxing smell. The second favourite thing about this product has to be its very smooth and creamy texture. It feels so soft on your skin and just makes the perfect bath companion.
Definately something to try if you havent already.
I found this Dove Beauty Bath in the pound shop and brought a few because I've had it before and remembered having a nice bath in it.
It comes in a bottle that you squirt the bubble bath under the running tap and I like that because it's easier to put the right amount in instead of pouring it in and accidentally going overboard. You don't need to use a lot to get a bath full of bubbles and the smell is gorgeous, it's the same smell that everyone thinks of when you mention Dove to them and is creamy and very pretty.
The bubbles are soft and strong, even though I was in the bath for ages there were still loads of bubbles in the water when I got out. It makes the water feel a bit soft when I was sitting in it and I thought it was a proper relaxing bath with all the bubbles and the lovely smell in the air.
It's a moisturising bubble bath and made my skin feel nice and soft when I got out. I wouldn't say it left my skin amazingly soft and smooth but it was a bit better than the Avon bubble bath I've been using just lately and I love the smell of Dove on my skin after I've had a bath anyway.
I felt very clean after I'd had my bath and used the thick bubble on my scrunchie to clean myself and I felt squeaky clean afterwards. It didn't leave my skin feeling greasy or anything like that and I had been a bit worried about that because of how moisturising it felt in the water like as if it was a bath oil instead of a cream.
I reckon this bottle will last for ages because you only have to use such a little bit for loads of bubbles and I'm dead glad I stocked up on it because it's going to be one of my fave bubble baths from now on I can see it!
After a stressful day at work I like nothing more than a relaxing bath to ease away the problems of the day. When this occurs I reach for my favourite bathtime product: Dove Beauty Bath Cream.
As soon as you poor it into the running water you are hit by the recognisable smell that Dove has. It is light, refreshing and not too powerful. It does however fill the room with its iconic smell, and in my opinion this adds to the relaxation of a warm bath.
Dove Beauty Cream Bath creates a large amount of bubbles even if a small amount is poured in. I like lots of bubbles so this is perfect for me, but it may not be to everbody's liking!
This product leaves my skin feeling soft am moisturised after my bath due to the 1/4 moisturing cream that Dove uses in its products. Therfore it does not irritate my skin which is a bonus as I have sensitive skin. This said if others suffer from sensitive skin they should always test a product if using for the first time. as skin types and reactions are different for everyone!
Dove Beauty Bath is available in various sizes, the most common that I have found is 500ml. The 500ml bottle ranges in price depending on which oulet you purchase it from. However it is reasonablly priced around £2.50. Although you could probably buy cheaper bath products I feel Dove Beauty Bath Cream is value for money because as said before, you only need a small amount to produce a rich creamy lather.
It's not very often I want a bath in the summer months, but the other night I really wanted to have a relaxing half an hour with a book so decided to have a bath. Late last year I bought this Dove Beauty bath and only used it a handful of times as I was using Lush products at the same time, and they usually win over any other product I may have in the house.
Anyone that has used any Dove product before will be familiar with the scent that Dove provides. It's a sweet, soothing long lasting smell that gives off wafts of sweets and pretty girly items. It's definitely not a masculine fragrance, and whilst there are slight variations on Dove products regarding their fragrances, this product is part of the original scent that you got with the first soap bar that was launched onto the market.
Being a bubble bath this product is designed to be run under warm running water to do its magic and create a bubble effect for you to sink into. Designed in a large bottle with a small flip lid, there is nothing fancy about the white bottle with basic Dove advertising in it, but I don't think it needs much to make it look classy and effective for what it is.
I do find the flip lid is slightly small, and anyone with nails may struggle to open the lid if it's secure, but once open the bottle is very flexible and the contents are easily poured.
Straight away I find you don't need a lot of the thick creamy liquid to create a good surface of bubble in the bath. They seem to last a long time around your body as well which is nice, unlike some that disintegrate after a few minutes of being in contact with the water.
Once poured and the bath is run, your bathroom will be overcome with the Dove smell and it stays with you throughout the bath and after so it really does act as a good air freshener as well for your bathroom.
Dove has always carried its motto of having ¼ moisturising cream to aid soft skin, and they state that on all their products. I don't find my sitting in this bath with bubbles that it does anything fantastic for my skin, but what I do find it does is really relaxes me. There are some products that I can bathe in and have to get out of the water after a while because the smell doesn't agree with me etc, but Dove is a product that entices me to stay in the water until it' nearly cold. There is something about it that seems to be able to clear my kind if it's too full and I can concentrate on reading a book without interruption.
It's due to the above reason that I don't mind paying nearly £3 for my 500ml bottle. It is slightly expensive for a high street brand, but you use so little of it that this bottle will last you for months if you use it at every bath.
I would recommend buying this and keeping for when you want to try something different, especially if you like the Dove fragrance.
