Dove Beauty Cream Bar
Advantages: Removes dirt, moisturises skin & smells lovely!
Disadvantages: None as it's my favourite bar of soap :)
Dove is one of those everyday brands that everyone knows! Good for skin and widely available they are a home brand and as much as I explore other washing products, such as shower gels and bubble baths etc this dove beauty cream bar is always in stock in my cupboard. Having used it as a child I know that if all else fails I can wash with this product and know it gets the job done!
*** The Product ***
This beauty cream bar is a white, oval shaped bar, with the word dove engraved and an appropriately placed picture of a dove underneath. It is a moisturising cream so contains 1/4 of moisturising cream within the bar to add extra moisture to your skin throughout washing.
*** My Usage ***
I use this soap bar with my flannel when washing, normally in the bath as opposed to in the shower when I will usually use a shower gel. In light with this, I have a wet flannel and I rub the soap bar quite vigorously together and it lathers up and I cream/wash my body with the lather of gathered from the soap bar.
*** My opinion ***
This soap bar is by far my favourite and one I will endeavour to continue using. It lathers amazingly, giving a rich, creamy, thick texture which when rubbed on my skin removes dirt very easily and leaves me feeling truly clean! I don't have baths too often (not that I'm nasty just don't have the time! Much easier to jump in shower for 5 mins than soak in the bath, especially when you have a demanding 2 year old!) so when I do have a bath I always reach for this soap to give me a good, thorough clean!
I love that it is made from 1/4 moisturising cream as I definitely notice the difference. Often after baths my skin feels dry and I need to use loads of moisturiser to make my skin feel soft and supple again. However, after using this dove bath moisturising cream, users will definitely notice (as I have!) the cream element and it leaves my skin delicate and fully nourished and it doesn't feel dried out at all!
It smells absolutely lovely, almost slightly perfumed and is quite strong, even when sealed my partner knows when there is dove in the bathroom! This smell does linger on and can faintly be smelled on my skin also, unless I sometimes add my own body moisturiser on top which does mask the scent. Otherwise for those who use this 2 in 1 soap bar (as I like to think of it!) as it's both a soap and a cream at the same time, it will be appreciated as a lovely body cream Which smells amazing!
These bars are relatively inexpensive as I picked up a pack of 4 for £2.20 in my local market. One bar does last me a long time (as I said earlier I don't have baths that often!) so one bar will see me through a good month or so, so I see it as good value for money when this pack will last me a good half a year!
Summary: Lovely bar of moisturising soap!
