Dove Fresh Touch Cream Bar
Advantages: The smell of this Dove soap is lovely, the soap did not dry my skin and moisturised it
Disadvantages: There are none
I like Dove products because I have excema which flares up if I use body products that are too strongly fragranced and I have found that the Dove brand as a whole is moisturising enough for my sensitive skin.
During a rare trip to Boots I saw a pack of 4 Dove Fresh Touch beauty cream bars which was priced up at only £1. 25 in the sale area so I brought couple of packs. I use normal Dove soap so I was interested to see what this new variety could offer me in addition.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that my new bar of soap is a nice summery green colour and it has the same wavy shape as normal Dove soap with the indented Dove logo on the top. As soon as I took it out if its little box I could smell a very fresh and spring-like scent that is similar to normal Dove soap but it has a definite scent of fresh cucumber. It smells lovely and I cannot wait to wash my hands and face.
When I wet the soap I found that it doesn't lather quite so much as the original Dove soap but the foam is thick and rich and feels lovely on my skin while I am washing. While I am scrubbing my face I can feel a cooling sensation and the soap feels lovely and moisturising. It is easy to work this into a lather and my face feels cleaner as I wash. I think the soap is very easy to rinse off with warm water and it didn't leave any residue at all even on my hairline where I think soap is sometimes hard to remove.
After I had rinsed my face and patted it dry I could feel how moisturised my skin was and it looked and felt squeaky clean. My face looked nice and pink and afterwards I didn't have any dry patches which is a common problem of mine. The smell of cucumber intensifies when I am using the soap and it is a fresh and clean scent which lingers nicely on my skin afterwards and this is even more apparent when I have used the Dove soap to wash my hands because I can still smell the fresh cucumber for quite a while after.
Another good thing about this soap is that it does not go all mushy after a few uses. I do not usually submerge my soaps because that is the quickest way to waste a bar of soap but when I took my Dove Fresh Touch soap into the bath it was still the same shape as when it went in just a little bit smaller, the normal Dove cream bar tends to melt and go all slimy when I use it in the bath.
I have been using this soap for over 3 weeks now and have nothing but praise for it and will continue to use it. It is gentle enough for it not to cause my excema to flare up, but as it is Dove I would not have expected anything else. I think it is a lovely soap and worth the money even at full price because the fresh scent alone is something I have not found in any other soap I have used. I know where to buy my beautiful smelling soaps because I have The Body Shop, Lush and one of the biggest Boots stores in the country within a short drive of where I live, but the smell of this Dove Fresh Touch is a little bit different and I am a bit obsessed by the scent!
Summary: This soap is even nicer than normal Dove
