“ Brand: Dove / Type: Soap / Skin type: for dry skin and for all types / What it does: Refreshes, „
I love the Dove Cucumber deodorant so when I saw that there was a soap in the same fragrance I decided to give it a try. I found the soap in one of our local bargain stores so it was a really great price at £1.99 for four bars of the soap.
My skin isn't very good and never has been, as a child I had to wash in aqueous cream as my skin was so dry and now I use a cleanser so soap is really only for my hands however both my daughters have suffered in the past with eczema so I am careful what soap I buy and usually it is the Doves original bar of soap which you will find in my bathroom.
The soap comes packaged in a small white cardboard boxed sealed at either end, on the front you have the Dove logo and a picture of a cucumber which has been cut open. It states on the front that it has ¼ hydrating lotion, the box is very easy to open and break the seal and when the soap comes out of the box it smells lovely and fresh with a hint of cucumber although I cannot smell the green tea which is supposed to be in it.
The bar of soap is an oval shape like the original version and it curls upover, it reminds me of a pile of Pringles crisps. The soap is a very light mint green in colour and has the Dove logo embedded in it although of course as you use the soap this wears away.
The soap is very easy to use as you would expect, wet your hands, face or whatever you plan and wash and either lather the soap on a wet flannel or wash mitt or on your hands directly and then use the lather to wash. The soap lathers well and it smells lovely too, the soap rinses easily from the skin and the smells remains nicely. The only thing I found with this soap is although my hands felt smooth after use it did seem to have a bit of a drying effect on my daughters skin I don't know whether this is due to the skin on your hands being tougher or whether my daughters skin is just too sensitive.
I will stick with the original Dove bar as it is better on my daughters skin but I will still give this 4 stars as it smells great, was a good price and it was nice on my hands. This is probably best for someone who doesn't have sensitive skin.
