This is a the original and probably the best formula that DOVE does.
This contains not one but three moisturisers for your body that lasts a long time into the day.
They call it NUTRIUM moisture that uses LIPIDS, which means it absorbs into your skin much more quickly and with more effect.
This smells clean, fresh and refreshing all day along. I could smell this throughout the day rushing around as it releases the fragrance.
The effect works amazing of the LIPIDS and personally I feel such a difference when using this in the shower.
I always allow this extra time to sink into my skin concentrating more on any dry skin as this is deeply nourishing and restorative to the skin.
This liquid is quite thick and the consistency is very god quality. You will only need a small amount as it lathers up very well I think you can improve on this a little by using the body cream to work into damp skin and allow to sink in.
Washing this off you may notice a slight difference as your skin made seem oilier with the moisturiser and there's a tendency to rinse it off more thoroughly, however try not to as you may prevent the benefits of the results.
Overall, using this long term will improve the texture of your skin, the softness, my skin felt incredibly nourished and moisturised.
I really couldn't recommend this product highly enough.
The prices vary from stores. I found that SUPERDRUG or BOOTS do very competitive prices, but you can buy bulk buys online that may outdo that.
Roughly the price for 100ml is £2.99, depending on where you buy x
I've just finished using this product, and I have to say it is beautiful. It had probably been in my toiletry stash for the best part of a year, but the body wash still smelled lovely. It has a rich slightly creamy smell, which is not too overpowering. I loved using this, and I found it left my skin feeling soft and refreshed, and I only needed to use very little body lotion or moisturiser afterwards.
I had a small sized bottle of this, but as it lathers so well, I found that a little goes a long way. Consequently it will last you a relatively long time, and because of this I think it is good value for money. Like all Dove products, my skin feels great after using it, possibly because of the 1/4 moisturisng clean.
This is a great shower gel to use, if you want your skin to feel rich and cared for, without it being too overpowering. As I suffer from dry skin at times, I found it really calmed this, and I have not noticed any problems while using the problem. However my partner has normal skin, and he also adored using this. It really is a must have in any bathroom.
If you love smooth, ultra soft skin, then this product is for you. It comes in two sizes, 210ml and 400ml. Both have the distinctive Dove name and logo on the front and are in the Dove dark blue and white colours. This makes it very easy to locate on the shop shelf. The shape of the bottle is good and different to other brands. It is easy to hold - even in the shower when your hands are wet. The flip up lid id easy to work and you can squeeze out just the amount you want, so there is no waste. The product is a thick, white and shimmery and looks very luxurious. It has a slight, but pleasant smell. It feels like silk. It lathers up very quickly - you do only need a small amount, making it very good value for money. It leaves your skin feeling soft and silky for ages. It usually costs approx. £2.50 for the smaller bottle and £4.50 for the larger size.
I got given a set of Dove products at Xmas and recently used the moisturising bodywash. Mine is a small bottle, about 15ml I think and I have no idea of the price as I haven't checked it with it being a gift!
The product smells like most other dove products I've tried, kind of floral and the smell is quite heavy but nice too. The bodywash is thick, it's not runny but you don't need much, just apply a small amount to a sponge or in my case an exfoliating glove and it will lather up so well you can wash your whole body with just this amount.
It feels very smooth going on and after I'd rinsed, this took a bit of doing as the product lathers so well, my skin felt very smooth and soft.
Once dry I still had very soft skin that did feel moisturised and smelt really nice. The next day my skin was still soft, smooth and moisturised which is a miracle as I have pretty dry skin!
I can recommend this, it does what it claims to do and moisturises for at least 12 hours. The scent stays with you for the same length of time too. Great product, I'll be buying some.
I seem to have developed a condition which I'll call "dandruff of the body". Seriously, my skin is really very dry, and lately I've found that its gotten so bad that flakes of skin seem to appear everywhere on my clothes - just like dandruff. Problem is, I know I could allay this very easily, but I just hate using body lotions. They're either greasy or smelly or too medicinal for my taste, so I've never gotten into the habit of using them. I can never remember to use them, nor find the time to use them. You see, I've got a very busy life - as it is, I've found I have to carry my makeup with me to work since I don't always have a chance to put my face on at home!
So what I'm always looking for is something that won't take me extra time and will help with this dry skin of mine. Imagine my surprise when I found that there's a product out there that might help me in this area - Dove's shower care "Triple Moisturising" Body Wash.
How did I come across this one? Let me preface that answer by telling you that, one of the things I love about the US is the fact you can find in lots of their big "drug" stores (read: large chemists shop a la Boots) trial size versions of all sorts of interesting items. These are always wonderful to pick up since their handy size is great for traveling or taking to the pool or beach, and the like. I had actually gone in to see if I could find some small sized container of a laundry soap, which I had stupidly forgotten to bring with me. Unfortunately, there was nothing available that wouldn't be a huge waste of both product and money. So over I went to the trail size section where I found an adorable little 59ml bottle of the US version of this product. I figured I could use it as a laundry soap, since it seemed the closest I could get. Little did I know at the time that a friend in town had given my sister some laundry soap and that I could have saved myself the bother.
But I'm not one to waste a product, and I figured if I didn't like it, I could always use it up and fill it later with some of that nice Nivea or Lux shower gel so I could take that with me on holiday and to the pool. And since I wasn't totally enamored by the scent of the hotel bath soap (you'd think that a Hilton hotel which puts out enough for Nutrogena shampoo and conditioner would give you a nicer bath soap, but not this one, apparently), I figured this might be a nicer substitute, so I decided to give it a try.
The first thing you'll notice when you open this bottle is the scent. Dove bath wash has a very soft, powdery scent to it that has been infused with a light flowery aroma as well, with a hint of green apple. Its not overly sweet smelling, either, and it doesn't smell soapy in the least. Overall, this is a very pleasant scented product.
When you first take out some of the product you'll find that its is also fairly thick. In fact, I'd say that its the thickest of all the body wash products I've ever tried. So much so that if you don't have a flannel or puff to put this on, you'll find that you can actually put some into your hand and it won't run through your fingers. But there is a down-side to this and that is that it isn't the easiest bath wash to get out of the bottle.
The biggest problem with this is that the container is made in such a way that you can't really stand it on its head so that the product moves to the opening. Let me explain. The bottle is actually very nice to look at, with its gently curved sides and pretty royal blue top. The top has a flip cover where the product comes out of, but like I mentioned above, its not wide or flat enough so that you can easily stand it on this. Moreover, the widest part of this bottle is just above the middle, so it can be a bit difficult to hold when your hands are wet. There also doesn't seem to be anything to make grabbing this bottle any less slippery because its so curvy. So, when you start to run low on this, you'll find it takes a bit of time to get the product out without it slipping out of your hands. With my little trial size bottle, although this fits nicely in my hand and doesn't slip about, I sometimes end up having to knock it several times against my hand before I can get enough out to use. This is the only gripe I have with this product - its packaging, and I've decided that because of this, added to the following, was enough to drop this product down by one star.
But once you've poured enough out to use, you'll find several things that are quite nice. Firstly, it lathers up very nicely. With a flannel or just using your bare hands, you'll get a fairly good amount of bubbles to wash with, which is nicely satisfying. But if you use a puff you'll get loads and loads of suds, much more than you can probably use, in fact. This is usually the case in the flannel or bare hand vs puff debate, and if you can use a puff, you should take care to use less of the product or you'll be lathered out!
While you're at the job of cleaning yourself, you'll really feel that nice scent coming at you, as the perfume of this product increases with contact to wet skin. Again, its not overpowering and cannot be described as invigorating, but rather nicely soft and comforting - almost relaxing. This is why I don't use this body wash when I'm very tired, but rather when I want to calm down or sooth myself - like in the showers after a workout in the pool, or when I shower in the evening after a hot, sweaty day.
Finally, when you rinse this off you'll feel that your skin is very smooth and silky feeling. This is the moisturizers going to work. You'll almost feel like the water is sliding off of you and that your skin suddenly has a protective layer on it to keep it feeling soft and moist. According to the bottle there are three different moisturizers in this body wash, and they all seem to combine very nicely into one very soothing wash. When your skin is dry, you might - like me - feel like you've put a thin layer of lotion over your whole body. But you won't feel greasy or sticky. Furthermore, the scent of this wash is subtle enough that it won't stick to you heavily and clash with your favorite cologne or perfume.
I bought this in a 250ml bottle at the Tesco in Oxford when it was on special of BOGOF for £2.99. (Too bad there was only one of these on the shelf. So as the second one, I got a bottle of their then new Refreshing Hydro Body Wash.) Even so, £2.99 for one 250ml bottle doesn't seem all that expensive to me, but I know its neither the cheapest body wash on the market, nor the most expensive. In the US the large bottles (I got one there that has a full 500ml) of this are more readily available, and they end up being much more economical and less expensive per ml. So, as for price, this doesn't gain any points but neither does it lose any.
All in all, I'd say that this is a very good product, pleasant to use, not terribly expensive but it hasn't been put into the wisest packaging on earth. But mostly, the best thing about this Dove body wash is that it smooths my skin and makes me feel like I've used a really nice body lotion, without the hassles of finding a body lotion to use. That should be as good a recommendation as any, if not one of the better recommendations there could be.
Thanks for reading!

They now call this Triple Moisturizing Body Wash and I've seen it at Boots for £2.28 for a 250ml bottle. I've also found the 400ml bottle for sale on-line through www.Ocado.com for £4.19.
Their web page http://www.dove.com doesn't give you all that much information except for US customers. There are no prices and no lists of ingredients, here. Unfortunately, http://www.dove.co.uk isn't much better, but you do see here that there are links to the company that makes Dove products, which is Lever/Faberge.
The bottle says that this was made by Lever Faberge in Hamburg, Germany, but it gives the address of Freepost, Admail 1000, London Sw1A 2XX or call 0800-085-1548 or in Dublin, Tel. 1850-404060.
I suffer from dry patches on my skin so I'm always on the lookout for a good Moisturisng Bodywash, and have found that Dove Ultra Moisturisng Bodywash is one of the better ones that actually does what it says,
It has been specially formulated to provide your skin with 24 hours of active moisturisation and contains all day moisturisers, which are lipids identical to those found naturally in your skin.
The bodywash itself is thick and creamy, mildly scented and not overpowering, it works up a good lather with only a small amount, and can be used in the bath or shower.
Comes in a user friendly bottle and is kind to sensitive skins.
I only have a small amount of dry patchy skin but after using this for the first time I was left feeling fresh and clean with no oily residue that you get with some products, and my skin looked and felt a lot softer,
so if you are looking for a good moisturising bodywash that works then this is recommended,
you will notice the difference even after just one shower.
The bodywash is readily available in chemists and supermarkets and comes in a variety of sizes.
The bottle I bought was 250ml and came with a shower puff,
I picked it up at the market for £1.99 which works out really cheap as it lasts for ages.
Having suffered from extremely sensitive skin for a number of years and living in a hard water area which made it substantially worse it became apparent that I needed to combat this problem in some way. Probably like most men when buying shower foam/body wash I failed to look in detail at what the various products contained and their effect upon my skin. When making my purchasing decision, I relied heavily on the cost of the product and whether the brand name was known to me and therefore whether it had been heavily advertised. Certain brands were associated in my mind with female products and certain brands more with male products. This subconscious divide was crossed when I purchased my first dove product. I'd desperately tried to find a mens shower foam that was both hypoallergenic and moisturising with no success. It seemed that only ladies had sensitive skin and required these products, something which I have hopefully proved is untrue, manufacturers take note! My purchase of dove body wash therefore had to be made from the ladies toiletries section of John Lewis. ----Initial Impressions---- The Lever Faberge website makes great play of the fact that Dove products are used by more than 7.2 million women at least once a week. Though this product was aimed squarely at the female market, the design of the product packaging was not obviously female centric. The body wash came in a large nicely curved white container with a deep blue plastic flip top. ----The Product itself---- The front of the container has the usual advertising claims in particular it claims that Dove Body Wash is triple moisturising. Since I am new to these sort products this confused me, how can a product moisturise three times? According to Lever Faberge in order for your skin to stay healthy and look its best it needs complete moisturisation that works beyond the surface. This does seem to make sense and the body wash supposedly does this in
three ways (if we are to believe the claims of the manufacturers!). Firstly moisturisation takes place through deep absorption which works longer and more intensively, secondly the skins natural moisture is replenished from within and thirdly the skin is regenerated helping its natural protective barrier to keep the moisture within. Based on the manufacturers claims then it appears that each of these moisturisation processes builds on the previous one and when taken together they ensure complete skin moisturisation. Do these claims have any basis in fact or are they just pure advertising phraseology? ----The Reality---- The body wash is easy to dispense from the container and comes out as a thick white liquid and slightly scented. The scent itself is very delicate but obviously female orientated. For me this wasn?t so great though it became apparent that liberal application of a male deodorant would neutralise the scent. Almost immediately after applying the body wash my skin started to feel smooth and soft a completely new sensation to me. Every previous shower foam and body wash I had used, all of which were aimed at the male market, had left my skin feeling extremely dry. The smooth and soft feeling of the skin lasted until my shower the next day when more dove was applied. ----Conclusion---- I?ve been using dove body wash, once a day for around 3 weeks now and my skin is noticeable smoother and softer. It has also prevented itchy skin and dry patches. To me this product is amazing, for once a manufacturers claims have actually been proved true. I just hope that Lever Faberge and other manufacturers out there realise that there is a market for a male version of Dove, dry skin is not just the preserve of the female part of the population. Lever Faberge manufacture various male orientated brands such as physio sport and Lynx, though none of these have similar products to those produced under the Dove Brand.
----Additional Information---- This review was based on the 400ml version of Dove?s Triple Moisturising Body Wash Price wise this product can be purchased for around £3.99 if you search around Lever Faberge website (www. http://www.leverfaberge.co.uk/brands/dove.html)
My daughter suffers from eczema, and I get dry skin quite often as well, so we try lots of these moisturising bath products. Usually I prefer the Oil of Olay body wash, but Dove is nearly tied with them in my books as for performance and value. Made by Lever Brothers and manufactured in Germany, Dove body wash contains lipids which are made to mimic natural skin oils to help your skin absorb them without being all greasy or feeling "oiled". It is also very gentle, which is probably why it was one of the washes recommended by our GP to try on our year old daughter. It is lightly scented, smelling vaguely like baby powder, so in some sensitive people, it may cause irritation especially in delicate areas. It comes in an oblong rounded off bottle with a snap close flat flip top lid. It has the familiar blue and white Dove packaging colours and logo very visible so you should be able to easily distinguish it from others on the store shelf. The lid itself is supposedly flat so that you can turn it upside down as the supply gets low and thereby catch all the drips and drabs inside. In actual practice, however, I have found the product so thick, that this made not one bit of difference so to get the last bit I typically run under a running tap and just enjoy a moisturising bubble bath. MMMMMMM...Bubble bath... Having said this, the product is so thick, I feel I must caution you about how much you use. Do not squeeze the bottle except to exert enough pressure to get a pea sized amount out. This is enough to lather up your entire body. It also does mean that at £2.99 for a 250 ml bottle, it lasts quite awhile. The only reason it is not number one on my body wash list is I find Oil of Olay's moisturiser soaks into my skin and that of my daughter's better and seems to last longer on us as well, and Dove's powdery type scent is not as nice as Oil of Olay's to me, but everyone is different and this can be a bit subjective. Also
, occasionally I get the odd spot or two on my back after using this, which i never get with the Olay wash. The product works equally well in a bath or shower, unlike some other body washes which are more for shower use, so it is versatile in that regard. It does smooth the skin as it moisturises, and your body puff (recommended over a flannel) will help deflake dead skin, but I find that on really dry areas such as feet, elbows, and knees, that a good body polishing cream or pumice stone is needed to really reap the moisturising benefits of this wash, whichever way you use it, bath or shower. The moisturising lipids seem to soak in past the super dry but not quite dead layers of skin otherwise and leave the top dry areas dry as a bone and feeling patchy still once the skin has dried. I recommend giving Dove a try, especially if you have skin that tends to be a bit on the dry side, just take all these factors into account for best performance.
I always love looking through magazines for those little sachets contained - that's how I discovered Dove body wash for the first time. Wonderfully moisturising, I poured the whole sachet over my sponge and it felt very silky and so so soft. Afterwards, I bought it in the shop and it comes in a huge bottle - good size. The packaging was simple but classic of the Dove style - quite refreshing. I seem to remember also getting a free puffy spongy thing which made it all the more worthwile and soft. Fantastic product and left my skin feeling smooth.
Dove. Strange name for a range of toiletries, but there you go. I suppose it’s got connotations of peace- peaceful and white-pure and wings-floating or some such semiotics. Anyway, the stuff is absolutely wonderful and that’s what counts. As you’ll know from the adverts, Dove products contain one quarter moisturising cream (even the deodorants!) and claim to be just about the best moisturising wash products you can get. I agree. Dove moisturising body wash comes in a 400 ml bottle for which I paid £4 in a local discount store, but I think it retails for a fiver at Boots. If you’re lucky you get a special promotional pack with a free shower puff to boot. There’s a claim on the bottle that 400 ml will do you 80+ washes. I don’t get this much out of it but then I do rather go to town in all things bathroom. One of the best things about Dove for me is the smell. It’s sort of flowery, sort of light and nicely powdery. I fail to see how anyone could find the smell offensive, it is so clean and subtle. The smell lasts on your skin for several hours but does not conflict with your perfume, instead blends into the background nicely. But now to the main purpose of Dove – its moisturising qualities. This product claims to deliver 24 hour nourishment to the skin, and the adverts always claim that after washing with Dove you feel like you’ve used a body moisturiser all over. I agree. I’ve been washing with this for several weeks now (I used to use Original Source) and my skin is much softer and smoother than it used to be. In fact if I accidentally touched myself in the dark I’d swear I was a teenager again. My skin is now about 10 years younger than I am and feels like supersilky satin. Dove won’t wake you up in the morning like some body washes, but will lull you gently into the day like the cooing bird it brings to mind.
We do use Dove products and have always been happy with them and the Dove Ultra Moisturising Cream is no exception. It comes in a 400ml medium sized bottle that will last you awhile. It leaves your skin feeling softer and dry free. The product smells really nice like a fresh type of smell and it does last for quite a while. There are some really good soaps/shower gels etc on the market. So what distinguishes this one? Your skin feels soft and gentle. The moisturiser works wonders and leaves your skin looking good. You only have to use a small amount, lather and rinse well and then feel the difference. If you do have a problem of dry skin then you will find that Dove Ultra Moisturising cream will reduce it. If you towel dry you will find afterwards no dry skin-which is excellent for the likes of me because I do have dry skin. The results last well and you will remain fresh and your skin soft and gentle until your next wash 24 hours later, so for best results use daily. It costs £3.25 and at the moment you can get 40% extra free so it could be worth buying. It does last you quite a while so I would say that you get your money worth. The design of the bottle is good, the nice white and blue décor of Dove products. The bottle size and shape make it easy to use in the shower without dropping it and without wasting it (what I mean is that it’s got a good funnel neck so you can squeeze the right amount out and so that the whole bottle doesn’t spill out). Available from most supermarkets and general stores. What I have noticed is that the price of this product does vary from store to store so you may see a price range from what I have stated. I do like Dove products they work well on dry or sensitive or normal skin for that matter and do a good job at a good price. You don’t want to waste to much time thinking about which cream or product to use. So if you want a good moisturising cream
that works well then you won’t go far wrong if you chose this product. If you are lucky you may even get the free scrunchie that come with most Dove products.
I realised when looking through my opinions at Dooyoo that I had never written an opinion on Dove Ultra Moisturising Body Wash so here it is. I usually use Garnier Nutralia Body Wash but I received the Dove product as a present and so decided to try it. The first thing that I noticed was that it is easier to dispense than the Garnier Nutralia. In fact I got the sponge and squeezed the Dove as firmly as I would have squeezed the Garnier and nearly moisturised myself to death! It was a good job I was sitting in the bath at the time! As you can see from the above explanation you only need a small amount of the product to do the job, but don’t squeeze to hard or you’ll end up with a handful! (ooer missus!) Dove is made by Lever Faberge and contains ‘lipids identical to those in the skin, which are absorbed leaving the skin feeling smooth’ – at least, that’s what it says on the container! All Dove products claim to one quarter moisturising cream (even the deodorant) and this is no exception. The lather is very creamy and does leave my skin feeling softer and moisturised. Whether that feeling lasts for the 24 hours that the advertising promises is questionable, but it does make my skin feel nice. It has a lovely clean smell, which does last on my skin, but in a light fresh way rather than as a fragrance that would compete with any perfume I may choose to wear. Another advantage of using body wash rather than soap is, if you use bubble bath, body wash won’t make the bubbles disappear in the same way that soap will. The body wash comes in a plastic container in the distinctive, clean blue and white that we have come to associate with Dove products. The top of the cap is flat so that when you have used about half of the contents the container can be stored upside to down so that it is easier to dispense the remainder of the body wash. I must admit I have found it
easy enough to use stored the right way up until the last bit and then I have upended the container. I’m afraid it would irritate me to see it upside down every time I went into the bathroom, but then that’s just me! Since this product was given to me as a present I can't be specific about the price but I understand it to be between £3 and £4. The upshot of all this is that I would now be just as happy using Dove as I am using Garnier Nutralia so I don’t mind which one Father Christmas brings me this year!
I often wonder how some products get their names, and why? Take Dove, now where did that one come from? Dooyoo (sorry!!) think it is because it is soft and white, like the bird? Or gentle? Mind you it’s undeniably better than calling it say, “Pigeon” or even “Sparrow!” But I digress, again! Lets get onto the op in question! Before we had our shower we used Shield soap and were quite happy with it until my eldest son developed an allergy to it. So it was back to the drawing board (or rather the chemists!) to find a suitable alternative. Dove was the chosen one, and we were very impressed with it. Although it didn’t smell as nice as Shield it was definitely softer and left your skin feeling very soft. Three years after getting the shower plumbed in we got it wired up to the electrics (D.I.Y runs at a snail's pace in our house!!) and then swapped to Dove Ultra Moisturising Body Wash, phew what a mouthful that is! And we have been just impressed as we were with the soap. The fist time I ever bought it I chose the package that came with the free scrunchy thing, you know what I mean? The thing that to me looks like a net curtain all screwed up and bundled together!! What a revolution that was (I am not a easily impressed saddo about these kind of things, although it might seem that way sometimes..tee hee hee!). We have never gone back to sponges or flannels, my boys really do have the genuine excuse of not knowing what a flannel is for! It came in a 400ml flip-top “bottle” for want of a better description, which is most useful in the shower, no more messy soap dishes to clean out! It ‘froths’ up very well and smells lovely too. Not what you would call perfumed, just a nice “soft” sort of smell, do you know what I mean? You don’t need a lot of it either so although I wouldn’t say it was a particularly inexpensive product it does appear to be good v
alue for money. It costs under a fiver for the size bottle I mentioned at the start. It honestly does leave my skin feeling very smooth afterwards, and for some time after too. It does state on the bottle that it continues to moisturise for up to 24 hours after, and that does appear to be the case. Although I did wonder what would happen after 24 hours? I mean would you just dry up like a wrinkled old prune!!! One thing that did puzzle me for quite some time though, you are going to love this bit. It says on the top, 80 plus uses, ermm what else exactly are you going to use it for I wondered? I mean I didn’t think that my Peugot 405 was going to benefit from having a softer body? The dog, well he runs a mile at the sound of running water, I don’ t think I would ever see him again if I attempted to wash him with it! It took me a while before the penny dropped and I twigged that I meant it would last for 80 washes!! Slow or what!! Now you know why they call me Scatty!! Thank you! Kazzie!!
I was given a bottle of Dove body wash for Christmas,but I dont normally use anything scented due to sensitive skin. Anyway I have been using this in the shower everyday since I had it . I love the stuff. It has a wonderful smell that stays on your skin all day.Its a very light odour not to over powering like others. It contains a moisturiser which is supposed to last for twenty four hours which leaves your skin feeling baby soft. It works into a lovely rich lather which glides over your body,this surprised me as I do live in a hard water area. I much prefer this cream now to using soap,it leaves my whole body feeling nice and refreshed. It is reasonably priced at under £2.00 a go. I think I will stick to using this as I am impressed with it.
