      Advantages

      • "while using it cleans impurities "
      • "Rich and creamy"

      Disadvantages

      More beautiful skin from a body wash?Absolutely.

      It smells lovely and fresh and would be suitable for all the family. I can smell it on my skin for a long time after using it and my skin does feel soft and hydrated. I do feel that I am giving my skin the best care by using this product as I know that I am not using any chemicals or unnatural ingredients..Use daily for soft, smooth skin. Skin is visibly more beautiful in just 1 week. And with continued use, see even better results in 3 weeks. Moisturizers that occur naturally in the skin.
      The crème itself is white in color and thick and creamy. It is thicker than the Dove Nutrium Body Washes. And I think it lathers better as well. I am glad that it rinses off easily and it leaves skin feeling soft and smooth after bath. It gave the same soft feeling as that of regular Dove soaps but I felt that this is more moisturizing. My skin has becomedrier with winter and with the body wash I have used prior to this Dove Crème Body Wash. My thighs are a bit rough and dry and I do hope to get some help with this Dove wash. With 2 weeks of use, I noticed that my rough spots are reduced and my skin over all is definitely less dry as well

      I love Dove for the quality if gives in an affordable price. I got my 200ml Dove Visible Care Softening Crème Body Wash for $3 only. I trust this bath crème during winter season and I expect that this will perform better during the summer when I am less dry.

      Amazing product that makes you feel great :)

      Very nice body wash that smells amazing and makes your skin softer and feel so much nicer! Has to be used for a long period to notice a good difference though.

      Disadvantages

      • None

      Soft as silk

      I bought this Dove body wash from a local discount store for £1.50 which I think is a good price for a 300ml bottle. It has a white flip top which you click down securely after use to secure and the tube is easy to squeeze as it stands on the lid so the gel is always at the squeezy end. I find that I only need about a ten pence piece size of the gel to squeeze onto my sponge and this is enough for my whole body. I will rub it into the sponge until it starts to foam which it does very quickly and unlike some other shower gels the bubbles seem to increase as I am washing rather than disappearing so I never have to use a second squeeze.

      It smells lovely and fresh and would be suitable for all the family. I can smell it on my skin for a long time after using it and my skin does feel soft and hydrated. I do feel that I am giving my skin the best care by using this product as I know that I am not using any chemicals or unnatural ingredients. I do recommend this shower gel as it leaves my skin feeling soft and smelling lovely for a long time after using it with a natural smell rather than a synthetic smell. It is ideal to use every day for all skin types as it is kind to your skin and I am happy to recommend it and will definitely buy it again

      Advantages

      • "Smells amazing"
      • "Moisturizing "

      Disadvantages

      Amazing, I would recommend it to anyone!!!

      I have quite sensitive skin so I usually use very plain, perfume free shower gel products from one particular brand in the shower to avoid irritation and have done for years. My friend uses a lot of Dove products and recommended the Softening Silk Dove body wash to me. At first I was apprehensive as it has an amazing scent so I was worried it would be full of perfumes and harsh chemicals that would cause discomfort to my skin. I was shocked by how smooth the wash felt on my skin and how moisturizing it was, I didn't even have to apply moisturizer after showering! It lathers up in the shower and is really luxurious to use. It's my new go-to shower gel, I can't see myself using anything else. The smell is stunning as well.
      I think that the price is well worth it. It lasts as it is really creamy and you don't have to use that much in the shower and washes off easily. It is a real treat for it's price.
      The bottle is attractive and looks really expensive, it's not an eyesore to have sitting in your bathroom!
      I usually use it myself in the shower but it is wonderful for a creamy, relaxing bubble bath. I have got my whole family using it now and I am so impressed that it has made me consider buying other Dove products.
      Overall it is a rave review for this body wash, I really love it.

      Advantages

      • "Nice fragrance"
      • Moisturising

      Disadvantages

      • None

      Lovely, luxurious product for a nudget price tag. Great product!

      I've always been a fan of dove products and this product certainly didn't disappoint. This body wash smells absolutely divine and comes out quite thick and very creamy. It feels very luxurious on the skin and incredibly moisturising. Many body washes can leave the skin feeling a bit dry and taught and this one doesn't, I always feel smooth and moisturised after using it. The body wash lathers up really well and a little goes a long way. I think the body wash is really good value for money because it really feels like it's a high end product with a much cheaper price tag. The packaging for the body wash is quite simple, it has the typical dove style, which I like. Personally I find that it's very asy to open and easy to keep clean. I would definitely recommend this lovely body wash and I would definitely re-purchase it and would use it again because I think it's great. If you're a fan of other dove products you won't be disappointed by this. The bottle itself is a fairly big size at 250ml and I think for the price tag, the quality is lovely, you really don't need much of it to get a good lather. It lasts a long time and you'll feel soft and moisturised after every wash, what more could you want? It's a luxurious body wash for the price of a lower end brand. I love it and it's a product I trust and will use time and time again. 5 stars from me!

      Advantages

      • "Mild Formula"
      • "Pleasant Scent"

      Disadvantages

      • "Bad Bottle Design"
      • Expensive

      A luxury product for less than luxury price :D

      I've not used that many Dove products, but this didn't disappoint me at all. The bottle was incredibly difficult to open while my hands were wet (making it a struggle to open in the shower) meaning I had to leave to the bottle open most of the time in order to use it on a regular basis.
      The product itself is wonderful, comparatively to the bottle or otherwise. The formula is smooth and creamy and applies evenly and easily on the skin, as well as washing off easily. It hasn't caused any allergic reactions on my sensitive skin, even with a light perfume in the formula. It smells beautiful as well and the smell lasts 24 hours+ with or without deodorant. I would recommend that you try and find this while it's on sale, as it can be quite pricey RRP.
      Overall, it's a luxuriously pleasant product for the price and I would recommend it to anyone that's looking for something a little special to perk them up.

      Advantages

      • "while using it cleans impurities "

      Disadvantages

      • "skin felt dry after some hours"

      I would recommend it to anyone.

      I purchased this product a years ago and Dove Silk Glow is by far my favorite body wash EVER!!! The smell is lovely, it lathers up in a really creamy load of bubbles and it gives my skin a glow to be proud of as well as making it very soft.

      It smells great!! Best so far. Gives a real soft feeling after using some sensitive skin people may refuse it but I would recommend it to my friend cause everyone's skin is not same. oo and also you have to keep in mind that it's expensive compared to other products in the market.

      It keeps your skin moisturized for 3 to four hours in a winter season and six hours in a hot/summer season.

        LOVE

        I love this, I have pretty dry skin but since using this product, I feel moisturized all the time without the use of actual moisturizer. I definitely recommend this product

        Advantages

        • "Very soft"
        • "Lovely smell"

        Disadvantages

        • Packaging

        Lovely smell, nice to apply, long-lasting.

        I don't have a strong loyalty to any particular brand of body wash so tend to go for whichever brand is on offer in the supermarket. If you shop around you can get this product for between £1 and £2.50 which I believe to be a reasonable price.

        My favourite part of this product is the fragrance. I find many body washes smell lovely when applying them but by the time I have dried myself from the shower I can no longer smell them. This body lotion however has a very delicate, feminine smell which is pleasant and long-lasting. It smells really fresh and clean rather than overpowering and overly floral which I have found with many other body washes.

        It is a nice product to apply and is really soft on the skin and does feel very moisturising, as advertised. My skin feels really soft but I don't find that the moisturising effect is substantial enough on it's own so I still moisturise following my shower.

        My main problem with this product is the packaging. It is not the most simple design of bottle lid and it can be quite a struggle to open, particularly with slippery hands in the shower! The branding and appearance of the bottle however is pleasant and very feminine.

        I find this product to be really refreshing and has a great long-lasting scent which is the main thing I look for in a body wash. The slight lasting moisturising effect is an added bonus for me.

        Advantages

        • "feels nice to use"
        • "smells okay"
        • "does not affect my allergies"

        Disadvantages

        • "scent is not that great"
        • "not as moisturising as they promise"
        • "slippery shaped bottle for a shower/bath product"
        • "Some not so great ingredients"

        Soft as a Dove but not moisturising enough for me

        This is not my usual choice but I am happy to use it when i get it on an offer price. The bottle holds 250 ml and at £3.25 full RRP it think it is expensive for what it is but I have never paid more than £1.50 -2 for mine.

        Dove say :"There's nothing like the sensation of silk on your skin. Silk shower combined with 1/4 moisturising cream to gently cleanse with a rich silky lather. Protects your skin's natural moisture balance, leaving your skin feeling smooth."


        It is a moisturising bath/shower product but not so much that i do not need to use a body lotion after it but it has not made me feel dry and tight skinned nor has it ever brought me out in a rash like some things do.

        The scent is clean and pleasant but not specially obvious and hard to describe - kind of like old fashioned Lux soap is my best effort.

        The bottle is an odd shape which i find hard to open with wet hands and it gets slippery too. You have to give it a good squeeze to get the stuff out. I ended up using it as a bubble bath and adding water to the last bits to get the rest out as I hate waste. It didn't fill the bath with bubbles but as it doesn't claim to be a bubble bath I won't hold that against it.

        The bottle of course is plastic and can be recycled through your usual recycling scheme. It is not clear so you don't know how much is left unless you can guess by how it feels in weight!

        I can't say it was that special. It washes and didn't dry out my skin but it also didn't do much to moisturise it either. I prefer to wipe body oil over my wet skin as i get out of the shower or bath and that really leaves my skin well fed. This alone would not do the trick at all.

        Advantages

        • "Leaves Skin Soft"
        • "Smells Nice"

        Disadvantages

        • "Top is hard to flip open"

        Great for your skin....tricky for wet hands to open

        This Dove body wash is really good and I have purchased it a few times since my initial purchase. It is really reasonably priced and depending on were you buy it you should pick it up for between £1-£2.49 . Like so many of my health and beauty purchases I first bought this Dove body wash from Amazon when it was on offer for £1 (Absolute Bargain). I tend to swap and change my shower gels and body washes very regularly so I have tried a large range.I find the Dove body wash to be really pleasant to use(Although it is very hard work to ooen the flip top when your hands are wet...or even when they are dry) It has a really nice smell and it is not an overpowering smell like some of the dove soaps tend to be...it's just a nice subtle smell.You don't need to use too much of the body wash as it does lather up quite a lot.It is really moisturising and it leaves my skin feeling soft after I have used it.I am not usually a fan of Dove products as in the past I have found them to be quite overpowering with the soapy smell but this body wash is just the right smell not too much and not to little.Like I mentioned earlier the only reason I have marked this product down is because of the practicality of opening the top of the body wash while you are in the shower....it is quite tricky to open you really have to put in a bit of effort which is not what I want when my hands are wet and im trying to enjoy a relaxing shower....obviously you would think the simple solution to this would be to open it before you get into the shower ...this is not easy even with dry hands lol They really do need to look at sorting the bottle out and then I would rate it a 5 as everything else about it is perfect,

        A lovely body wash from Dove

        I bought dove Body Wash Softening Silk for the family’s use so it went into the bathroom rather than the downstairs shower as the bathroom seems to be more used than the shower cubicle. I knew this was popular as it didn’t last very long. This was at a time when the house was full of people.

        I suppose it is more of a ladies body wash but I think the men must have used it. Most things that I put out in the bathroom get used at least once by all and then if they don’t all like it then it won’t get used up for ages. If they don’t like a product then the reason for their dislike is usually because it is something that smells too flowery and feminine and maybe also smells too powerful.

        I really like this body wash but then in all honesty, I do like nearly all of the Dove products that I have tried. It’s very rare that I'm not pleased with Dove products in general. But I am not really particularly brand loyal either. I tend to look for offers and also will buy something that catches my eye as long as it is selling for the right price. But if it is from a manufacturer I like and sold at a reasonable price then in my shopping basket it will most likely go.

        But regarding this product it is good. I liked the feel of it when using it as it really does feel so soft and silky. It does feel moisturising on the skin.

        I would say that it cleanses well without drying my skin.

        The scent of this body wash is really nice. It’s hard to describe but I would say it smells creamy and although the smell is nice it isn't overpowering.

        When my skin was dry I could still smell this body wash upon my skin but it wasn't too cloying.

        Dove Softening Silk Body Wash is currently available from Tesco at the price of £2.55 for a 250ml bottle.

        Advantages

        • "It is cleansing"
        • "It is moisturising"
        • "It makes my skin feel soft and clean"

        Disadvantages

        • "The bottle is very hard to use"

        Dove Silk body wash

        WHAT IS IT?

        This is shower cream that is made by Dove. It is called Silk Glow now because Dove changed the name and the design of the bottle last year but the product is the same.

        THE PACKAGING

        This shower cream comes in a bottle that is very hard to use sometimes because it has got a strange shape so that when you try to get some out it gets stuck. When there is a small amount only left in the bottle it is so hard to get out of the bottle that I have to nearly bend the bottle in half to remove it.

        WHAT I THINK

        I am very happy with this shower cream because I like the smell and I like that the bubbles are very thick and they feel nice and soft on my skin. The bubbles feel like they are moisturising my body and I am happy about that because I trust Dove to be effective when I have got skin that needs to be moisturised and even though I still have to use body cream if my skin is dry I do not care about that because I know that the shower cream is being kind to my skin when I use this product.

        The smell does not linger for very long on my skin and that is a pity but I do not care very much because I think the smell of this shower cream is alot more oily and greasy than other Dove shower produce.

        I like how clean my skin feels when I use this shower cream and I use it with a sponge so I do not have to use very much to make my whole body clean. It has never made me have any irritation and my skin is never itchy when I use it so I think it is a very gentle shower cream that is good for my skin as well as being cleansing.

        ANYTHING ELSE

        A bottle that has got 250ml of shower cream in it costs about £3.60 and I think that is value because it is very nice shower cream but I wish that Dove would look at their bottles because it is so hard to take out the last bits that I think I sometimes waste quite a lot.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Would last ages and is lovely to use.

        I don't know how much this body wash is as someone gave it to me with some other beauty products as a gift.

        Anyway am fussy about what I put on my skin and I tend to like smelling things before I buy them, as I love Lush products as well as Boots Fresh range.
        Mine is the same as shown in the photo.

        What Dove Claim
        There's nothing like the sensation of silk on your skin. Silk shower combined with 1/4 moisturising cream to gently cleanse with a rich silky lather. Protects your skin's natural moisture balance, leaving your skin feeling smooth.

        My Opinion
        I flipped the lid and smelt it, it doesn't really smell of anything but as it doesn't contain anything to do so I wasn't expecting a floral scent or anything. I squeezed some into my hand first as I wanted to see what i felt like, rubbing my fingers into the product it is very soft.
        So I squeezed a ten pence size onto my mesh sponge and rubbed it together to lather it up, there were lots of 'bubbles' and went a long way on my skin so I only applied some more product twice, so you don't really need to use much.
        It felt lovely and soft on my skin and it did leave my skin feeling clean. It was enjoyable to use the product.

        I use products in the bath, but I think shower users would have trouble as there is no hook on it, so unless you have a shelf it would slip about.

        I think that Dove's claim of feeling like silk is bold, but on drying my skin my skin felt lovely and soft to the touch.
        I can't comment on how long it would feel like this as I always apply body lotion afterwards. I decided to try my Dove body lotion -in another review.

        Product
        The bottle shape is a good choice as it fits nicely in your hand, and the lid is a flip cap. Has a long list of pharmacutical ingredients. Back of bottle says that it lasts 12months and has the recycable logo. I wish products would be more accurate though by putting a date rather than 12months as you don't know how long its been on the shelf. I tend not to keep products for ages though.

        I would use this product again as you don't need much to get some 'bubbles' on your wash sponge and it feels lovely and I think it would last a long time.

        Would I buy?
        As I prefer scented products I think I would only buy if it was on offer.
