Dove Fresh Touch Cream Bar
Advantages: Really good smell and leaves no residue
I really like to use soaps that smell nice. Like everybody does, I do prefer shower gels as I tend to find that they leave less of a greasy feel to your skin than soap does. However I was given a Dove Refresh Travelling Kit for Christmas which contained: Anti-Perspirant Deodorant, Beauty Care Body Wash, Beauty Cream Bar and a Body Puff. It all came in the fresh touch smell of cucumber which is really nice. I finally got around to using it on holiday a few months ago and was pleasantly surprised.
Dove has been creating soap since 1955 when they started up in the U.S.A however they have now expanded and make many more products including: deodorants, body washes, beauty bars, moisturizers, hair care and facial care products. It is a very famous brand which is known for being kind to your skin and of good quality.
My bar of Dove soap came in a little green and white box with the Dove logo printed on it in silver and all the necessary information.
Dove Fresh Touch Beauty Cream Bar contains pure cucumber extract and calming green tea. These are what make it smell so good.
It's ingredients are:
Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Stearic Acid, Sodium Palmitate, Sodium Stearate, Aqua, Sodium Isethionate, Sodium Palm Kernelate, Coconut Acid, Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate, Parfum, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Cucumis Sativus Juice, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Dipropylene Glycol, Sodium Chloride, Citric Acid, Lactic Acid, Benzoic Acid, Sorbic Acid, Zinc Oxide, Tetrasodium EDTA, Tetrasodium Etidronate, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Butylparaben, Propylparaben, Isobutylparaben, Alpha-isomethyl Ionone, butylphenyl methylpropional, Citronellol, Coumarin, hexyl cinnamal, limonene, linalool, CI 47005, CI 61570, CI 77891
The soap itself is a very pretty light green colour with the dove symbol etched into both sides of it. It has a curve in the middle so that it doesn't lay flat but, like most dove soaps is perfectly shaped to lather up with. It smells very strongly of cucumber which is a nice refreshing smell and is quite revitalising. It has a real knack of waking me up in the mornings.
It was really easy to lather and felt smooth and silky on my skin. Best of all it didn't leave any kind of annoying residue on my skin which in my mind makes it the best soap ever! It was really easy to rinse off but doesn't wear down and go all soft and useless after a few uses. It left behind its wonderful cucumber scent for about 12 hours which meant I was feeling fresh all day.
It only costs £1.12 for two bars from Tesco which I think is definitely worth it. Overall I think this is a really great soap and I don't think I'll be able to find a better one anytime soon. It's smell is really nice and I just can't get enough of it.
Summary: Highly recommended
