Dove Indulgent Body Lotion With Shea Butter
Advantages: scent, smooth skin, quality, absorbs quickly, I got it cheap!
Disadvantages: full price is rather expensive
This body lotion is marketed as being a 'nourishing' lotion. It has a 'DeepCare' complex which includes a blend of essential oils and natural nutrients which help to improve skin from deep down. It also contains shea butter extracts (check ingredients if you may be allergic) and has been dermatologically tested. It is aimed at those who have dry skin.
Other products in this range include a hand cream, soap bar and body wash.
This body lotion is presented in a tall, white plastic bottle with a flip top lid. The design of the bottle is very simple and includes the important product information. The bottle can be recycled and this lotion has a 12month shelf life from first use.
~Where To Buy~
A 400ml bottle of this body lotion is currently available from Superdrug priced at £4.99. A 50ml size is priced at £1.00. Boots offer a 250ml sized bottle for £3.99 (currently half price). There is also a slightly different version of this which includes a vanilla and shea butter scent priced at £4.99 (currently half price).
I like Dove products so was pleased to spot this body lotion in the clearance area of my local Boots pricemarked at £1.23. I was even more delighted when I got to the till and was only charged 62p for it as the Dove range was on offer at half price - bargain! For my 62p, I got a 400ml bottle which will last me quite some time as I alternate it with other body lotions.
I love lotions that include shea butter as I find shea butter helps nourish my skin really well. I have dry and sensitive skin which needs moisturised up to twice a day so as you can imagine, I spend quite a bit of money on treats for my skin. At full price, this body lotion is a little more expensive than other brands but in my opinion, it is worth the cost.
This body lotion has quite a thick consistency and is pure white in colour. I have learned that I should only dispense a little at a time as this lotion melts into skin and starts to absorb very quickly. Applying too much with the intention of spreading the lotion proves to be quite difficult and results in me needing to apply extra lotion. I find this body lotion to be very pleasant to use. It spreads well if worked with quickly and feels really cool and soothing against my often irritated skin.
As I said, the lotion absorbs very quickly and leaves no tacky feeling on the surface of my skin. I find this body lotion to be very moisturising. It simply melts into the surface of my skin and leaves it feeling very comfortable deep down and silky smooth on the surface. The results last for most of the day too. It works a treat on extra dry areas (knees, elbows etc) as it leaves these areas feeling smooth to the touch. This lotion is gentle and I have experienced no irritation from using it.
Scent wise, I feel that this is either going to be a scent which you will like or dislike. I personally like it. It is noticeable as soon as the cap is flipped open and whilst it is quite strong, it doesn't overpower any perfume which I choose to wear. The scent is very natural smelling - sweet, creamy and with a slight nutty undertone. It smells quite foody to me and is a delicious, scented treat for my skin. The scent is mostly sweet at first but soon settles to be a more subtle, powdery sweetness which sits close to the skin. It really is gorgeous and evident on my skin for a good few hours.
For the price I paid, I am more than happy with this body lotion. It leaves my skin feeling wonderfully moisturised and nourished. It smells gorgeous too. I use this often but have to be in the mood for the sweet, shea scent. I sometimes like to slather it on at bed time as I find the scent to be relaxing and rather comforting when in bed at night! Therefore, I recommend it! If you wish to try this, head to Superdrug and pick up a 50ml bottle to sample.
Thanks for reading :)
Summary: a lovely sweet treat for dry skin
