This product is by far one of my favourites when it comes to keeping clean. The original bar is lightly scented and is familiar to my childhood, as it has been a brand in my family for a very long time. The brand is well known worldwide as I have even seen people using it in America. There are many scents to Dove soap, but this Original bar is by far one of my favourites. It’s not overly scented and that is what I love. I am the sort of person who prefers natural smells.
I usually get this product from Poundland as you get two bars for a pound, however, from time to time cheap home stores such as B and M sell the product for 29p a bar which is more beneficial and value for money. The fact this product is so cheap is something you can't complain about because the quality is also nothing to complain about.
The product lathers well when used on its own, with a flannel or sponge. It doesn't flake and dries nicely without getting stuck to the soap bowl, which has been the case sometimes with me. It’s packaged as simply as possible and is also suitable for all ages.
It is also packaged nicely. It comes in a blue and white cardboard box, with the familiar branding logo and design. The box itself, if it is part of a multi-pack, also comes in a silicone wrapper with the same blue and white design. This helps the branding image to stick in your mind.
I love dove soaps. I think this soap is the best in the world. My family including myself have been using this soap for at least 10 years as it’s clearly the best soap on the market for the price! Even though I love super scrimping, I have decided not to change soaps because after trying out many cheaper soaps including branded products such as Imperial Lather and Palmolive, I have found that Dove cream bar is the best soap and the only one that doesn’t leave your skin feel dry and instead moisturises your skin.
The soap itself is sold in all major retailers in the UK, (I don’t think it’s sold in Aldi but I’m not sure about this) and comes in different pack sizes, you can buy a single pack for about 79p, a double pack at around a £1, a 4 pack for £1.69 and a 6 pack for £2.90. I personally always buy the 4 pack as it tends to be on promotion more often than the 6 pack. It’s currently £1.50 at Superdrug!
The soap itself is 100g and is an oval shape with the bottom carved out to form an oval ridge so it’s not completely oval. I think this shape is excellent as it fits in your hands and you can form lather very efficiently and quickly. After washing your face and body with the soap, it leaves your skin feeling very smooth and moisturised and feels hydrated somehow! I don’t know how they have managed to make this product so good at that price but it is excellent! It feels like a luxurious product. Also, I have found that Dove crème bar lasts longer than other soaps and once again, I do not know how. Finally, I also like this soap, as it’s not heavenly scented so it’s perfect for everybody.
Personally, when it comes to soap, I think you should never compromise and you should always buy this product no matter your budget. You will not regret it!
Yes, it's true that Dove cream bar is a very healthy skin care product. I Learn about this product from my mom when I'm age of 13 or 14. She gets so good result from this product . At that age I started to use Dove and still now I using it. Now I'm age of 30 and I feeling very refreshing and soft to use it. The only soap bar which you use everyday even on your face. After 2 week your skin become so soft and younger.Even if you have a sensitive skin You nevertheless you use the product for a better result. It's my all time favorite product and a must used product for everyone.
There is simply nothing you can say to fault Dove soap.
It's not fragrance free, it smells gorgeous. It doesn't have an overpowering scent, but a lovely fresh smell. I have quite sensitive skin, so what I particularly love is that it is made with moisturising cream, so it will always leave me feeling really clean, but I never feel as if my skin is dry after using it.
I really do recommend you try it, especially if you are put off because it is a 'soap'.
I use it twice a day - in the morning and at night . I use it on my body instead of shower gel and I use it on my face too, instead of a face cleanser.
Dove soap bars are reasonably priced, especially if you buy the multipack. You could spend a fortune on fancy cleansers, but what is the point when Dove is so much better?
I love Dove Crème Bars. That makes it sound like something you can eat - in actual fact it's a bar of soap but it's not just ordinary soap - it's a real luxury soap. I hate cheap soaps as they strip the skin and make me itch like crazy so I always think it's a good idea to invest in as expansive a soap as I can afford to.
I buy my Dove Crème Bars in singles but they are available to buy in doubles or multi packs and then they work out less expensive. The size of these bars is 100g and I pay about a pound a bar but it lasts me for ages. I use them in both the shower and the bath and I love the way they make my skin feel and smell.
The bars are oval shaped and have the Dove log indented on the top of every new bar, though this soon disappears after it's been used a few times. The bars contain one quarter moisturising cream and they are less harsh than cheaper ordinary soap bars. They lather really well and feel rich and creamy and very luxurious on my skin. I personally use these crème bars on my face and they don't leave my face feeling tight or stretched like some bars containing just pure soap can do. I really hate that as I feel that they can strip the skin of all its natural oils.
The smell is great, light and fresh and creamy and it lasts for ages on my skin after I have used this soap in the bath or the shower. One bar lasts me about four weeks so they are great value for money and I also love the little cardboard boxes they come in, rather than plastic or cellophane. Great luxury soap and well worth the money.
Never have I come across a soap so creamy and moisturising that has a wonderful scent to it as well as texture. Not only this but dove by far lasts the longest compared to any other soap I have ever used. It produces a good lather and most importantly doesn't dry out your hands. I my self am guilty of overlooking the importance of taking care of my hand and especially now in the colder weather it is imperative to take care of them as they can dry out and become cracked.
However for me the one downfall of this soap is that I just simply don't feel as clean as I would like after using it. For me cleanliness should be the mane focus of all soaps yet instead for this I feel they have concentrated more of the moisturising side of thing. I know this is probably just a personal thing and many other would disagree but for me it is very hard to overlook.
Nevertheless I would still definitely use this product occasionally as many soaps do dry out the skin.
This soap is a good price as it last a long time, it is one of the toiletry items which seems to have withstood the test of time being used by mothers, grandmothers and grandmothers. The bar of choice is the 100g which is one of the bigger bars of soap I use.
The bar is white with a dove silhouette embossed onto the bar; the wrapper is white with blue detail and the Dove logo on it.
The soap gives off a good lather when rubbed between my hands using only a small amount of warm water. I say small as I am a stickler for saving water as the companies make too much out of us all as it is. The lather produced does go a long way and smells so fresh and clean. However, sometimes I find it can be a bit powdery in its smell like talc or something of that heaviness. As the soap is made to have a neutral PH level and not full of perfume I find it ok for my sensitive skin but despite the moisturising claims I still do feel my skin is a little tight after use and I continue to use my usual moisturiser.
The other bad thing I find with the soap is it leaves my skin feeling almost tacky like it still has some residue left on it, it feels like it sticks to the towel, yet other people I know that have used Dove say that this did not happen to them.
I find the soap a nice arched shape it is easy to keep hold of when it is wet unlike some other soaps that just slip straight out of your hand.
All in all a sturdy and trustworthy brand and soap.
It doesn't take a genius to know that I love any product that makes me smell nice and so I am often on the look out for new products to try. As luck would have it, a mysterious bag of shopping showed up at my husbands work place recently, and following a fortnight of no one coming forward to claim it he took some of the contents home. One item was a pack of four Dove soaps. Now I have tried Dove deodorant before, but having never tried their original product I was keen to see how good it was.
My soaps were packaged in white cellophane wrapper which had the Dove logo on the front and a rather whimsical gold dove. Opening my packet the four soaps were nestled inside, each housed in their own individual cardboard box. This was a nice touch in my opinion as it meant that I could stack the four soaps neatly inside my bathroom cabinet and not have to worry about denting them before use. The boxes are white on the top with text indicating that they are 'beauty cream bars' whilst the back of the box is blue and this gives a summary of the soaps ingredients together with the weight of the soap which is 100g. Opening one box, via the side opening, the soap inside is ready for use and does not have any of the fiddly cellophane wrapping that others have which can make them a pain to open. The soap is white in colour and is slightly larger than other products I have used in the past measuring in at just under 8cm long x 6cm wide by 3cm deep. This makes for a large slab of soap which feels heavy and has a firm feel which makes it less likely to dissolve as soon as it comes into contact with a watery bath. The actual soap itself has the most lovely scent that I can imagine and this smells very clean, soft and typical of Dove. A Dove is imprinted onto the top of the soap and this imprint goes quite deep as it hasn't yet been removed from my bar of soap despite two weeks of use.
A feature that I love about this particular product is that the smell of it is noticeable from the minute the soap is removed from its box and laid onto my soap dish. Within minutes I can smell the fresh clean smell of the soap and this makes my bathroom smell lovely in between uses. Even here, sitting at my desk with a box of soap I can still smell its clean scent through the packaging. The smell is not particularly masculine nor feminine, rather it retains a soft yet noticeable clean smell which makes this particular product suitable for both men and women in my opinion.
To use this soap is really a treat in my opinion. I like to ensure that my hands are damp before picking up the soap bar and giving it a good rub between my hands. The soap foams as it is moved between my palms and this creates a lovely white lather which smells lovely and feels nourishing on my skin. Unlike other soaps which seem to strip my hands of moisture, this one seems to have a slightly creamy feel which soaks into my hands and leaves them feeling supple and soft. I was so pleased after first using this soap as a hand wash product that I actually put another bar next to my bath for bath time. It works wonders when the bar of soap is actually rubbed over the entire body and afterwards I am left with white foam which simply needs a rinse to remove. I haven't found this soap to be harsh on any part of my skin and it is so gentle that I do now use it to wash my face in the mornings leaving even the delicate skin around my eyes feeling soft and nourished.
Another great thing about this soap is that after using for a couple of weeks mine doesn't have that worn out look. In essence this means that it isn't covered with soap scum giving a general impression that it needs replacing. This is great in our house where we are partial to having things look nice and clean and means that I won't be wasting any of my lovely soap.
Unfortunately I didn't buy my soaps however a quick look on the Boots website reveals that you can currently buy a pack of four for £2.35. Working out at around 59p per soap makes these a real bargain in my opinion. Particularly considering I have been using the same bar of soap next to the sink for a couple of weeks now and it still isn't even half way through.
Overall, as my review illustrates, I am very happy with these soaps and without exaggerating they are probably some of the best products I have used. Consequently they do score an excellent five stars from me and come highly recommended. I will just have to make sure that I pick up the same ones next time we run out.
I hope this review has been of some help and thanks for reading! x
I have very sensitive skin, especially on my face, and am unable to use any old soap or wash. I react badly to most soaps, and they can simply make my skin dry, or give me a huge reaction and my skin flares up and gets quite sore. Therefore i have to be careful what soap I choose and need to be quite picky about it. Dove soap is different to all other soaps on the market. Why is it different? The main difference is that it's actually called a cream bar, not soap. I'm not 100% sure what the difference is between cream bar soaps and normal soaps, other than dove has some moisturiser in them, but I know that Dove does feel creamy and quite rich and luxurious compared to other soaps.
The bar is white in colour and is oval shaped but kind of curves a little underneath. On the top of the soap there is a picture of a dove, the logo, marked in it. It looks nice and unique without being overly fancy.
It comes in a blue and white card box with the logo on it. I think it looks simple but classy. Good quality and not trying too hard.
WHAT'S IT LIKE?
The soap lathers up really well. When rubbing it in your hands it produces lots of thick bubbles which feel rich and creamy and just generally of really great quality. After washing with the dove cream soap bar, my skin always feels really clean but not dried out at all. Dove claims this is because their cream soap bars have one quarter moisturising cream in them.
The scent is lovely and typical of the dove range. After using the soap I can smell it for a little while after, it makes you feel
really clean and fresh.
Even as a family of 4 using this soap it still seems to last a while, unlike cheaper soaps we've used in the past that don't seem to last long at all and seem to melt away after a few uses. Dove soap is much better and is longer lasting.
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY
To buy just one bar it costs around 70p but they are usually available in different pack sizes and the bbigger pack you buy the better value you get per bar. For example you can get a pack of 2 for £1, a pack of 4 for £1.50 or a pack of 6 for £2.20.
They are available from most supermarkets, pharmaceutical shops and sometimes are available in pound shops and discount stores.
I would definitely recommend this soap to anyone. It really good quality, lasts for ages and is good value.
5/5 for me
Thank you for reading my review on Dove cream bar soap. I hope it was useful.

With busy working lives and rush to leave the house in the morning, during shower times there can be a tendency to quickly use a shower cream or gel, without getting a chance to pamper your skin. Luckily, Dove is one quarter moisturising lotion as part of the soap. It lathers up really well and is great value for money with one bar lasting at least a few weeks based on having a minimum of one shower a day. You can usually buy the 2 x 100g packs on offer at most supermarkets (Tesco for me) For £1.
I don't have to worry if I forget to moisturise, because Dove leaves my skin feeling soft as well as clean afterwards. It is suitable for daily use and even on the skin. I have used it before to wash my face in the shower as a substitute for cleansing. Although it's a quick fix, I wouldn't suggest using it on the face every day especially if you have sensitive skin otherwise I would feel like my face has been stripped of its natural oils that moisturising cannot replace. The rest of the body's skin is better suited for using soap.
For more information on ingredients, you can find a link to Unilever's website through Dove's website where they list the ingredients in the bar to reassure you about what chemicals you are exposing your skin to (for me this is not a worry because most products have chemicals in). If you have sensitive skin, you should get the bar for extra sensitive skin instead of this one.
The packaging is simply a small rectangular box encasing the soap. You need your own soap holder obviously. The soap itself has a pringle crip shape but its thick and chunky. As with many soaps, when it's wet its not that easy to grip. But you can just use it a bit and lather the rest up with a scrub if you're exfoliating. There is cute little Dove logo of the bird on the soap too, but it will disappear as you use up the soap.
If you're feeling a change from shower gel, or want a good moisturising lather up soap bar - Dove's beauty cream bar is the answer.
Product: Dove Cream Bar
I always keep a bar of soap on the sink in my bathroom and I often switch between different brands every few months or so depending on any promotional offers at that time.
In time I found that the soap which I was using at that particular time was drying my hands out far too often so I decided to look for something a little different to my regular brands.
When I cam across the Dove Cream Bar I knew that I had to try this, it's created with ¼ moisturising cream therefore I was secretly hoping that this would combat the dryness on my hands.
I bought the Dove Cream bar from Boots for 70p which I feel is a reasonable price for a bar of soap.
The Soap comes packaged in a small blue and white cardboard box with the Dove logo and description at the front of the box whilst all over relevant information is printed at the back of the box.
The soap itself is an oval shape and as the word "Dove" imprinted into the soap. Underneath the lettering is a picture of a Dove embedded into the soap.
The soap smells extremely clean and fresh. The soap lathers really well onto my skin and feels a lot more luxurious than a regular soap.
This leaves my skin feeling well moisturised, nourished, smooth, soft and baby clean. What more could I ask for in a bar of soap, it does exactly what it intends to do whilst being kind to my skin.
The Dove Cream Bar is a definite recommendation from me and a product which I will continue to buy time and time again. No more dry hands for me.
Dooyoo Stars: 5/5
I have bought Dove Cream bars since 1996. The cheapest deal I have found is 2 x 100g bars for £1 at Tesco.
I love everything about this soap. To start at the beginning, there was a small bar in my 'Emma's' basket when I had my daughter, nearly 18 years ago. Born by C section, my first shower was painful and not a little scary (yes, I know - TMI!) but once the nurse had helped me to get comfortable, she handed me the little bar of soap and as I showered, the scent filled the shower cubicle.
Even now, I appreciate the soft suds which leave no trace of stickyness on my skin. I used this bar for my facial scrub for years (mainly because I couldn't afford other products) and I quite often would get complimented on my skin. In fact I remember having one of those 'dermabrasion' facials and having my skin put under a special light. The beautician said how good my skin was and what did I use. She was quite surprised at my reply 'Dove soap'!
The shape of the bar is nice - it feels good to hold. It is curved so not only can you smooth the concave side over your own curves, resting it on that side also allows air to circulate so you do not get a gloopy puddle for the soap to sit in.
I prefer to use those net-type shower scrubbies and Dove Cream Bar works very well with them. I can get a good lather of creamy suds which feels so nice on my skin. The high percentage of moisturiser really does make a difference. I hate that feeling when you run your finger along your skin and it 'drags' a little. A bit like that 'squeaky clean feel'. Hmm - may be clean but I hate the feeling. Dove doesn't do that. No 'squeaky clean' here - just 'smooth and creamy clean'.
I have never really thought before about how long a bar lasts. I am very selfish - I will not let anyone else use my bar. They have to use their own! But let's say that I use a bar 2 - 3 times per day, every day...a bar will last me a couple of months. WOW! That works out at less than 1p a day!
I also like the fact that the soap is in a cardboard box which can be recycled.
Going back to the smell - everytime I use Dove Cream Bar the smell takes me back to the birth of my daughter. It always makes me smile as I remember the newness of her and the power of the new love I felt. Yup. I love Dove!
=Dove Soap (Dove Cream Bar)=
Dove is now a household name, and has cornered a strong hold of the marketplace in the health and beauty sector. The product that I am reviewing today is thr "original Dove Soap". Known as the Dove Beauty Cream Bar.
The bar of soap is a white colour soap, it is oval in shape and has the word Dove imprinted into the soap as well as a picture of the soap. The soap contains 1/4 of moisturising cream.
The bar is a good quality bar, it keeps it shape even if you are using it in the sink or the bath or even in the shower. I tend to use mine to freshen up when I get a wash, with a flannel. The soap produces a good lather, and this feels reall soft and creamy on my skin, even after it has been rinsed off you can feel the softness where it has been.
=Price and Availability=
These can be picked up from most retailers, from supermarkets, chemsits, discount store, I tend to buy mine in Home Bargains, as this seems to be the best value retailer at the moment for me. I can pick up 2 bars for £1.00
The soap is long lasting, even with daily use, find that the bar holds in shape, literally to the bitter end.
There are other varieties, such as Cucumber and Shea Butter.
=Would I recommend=
I know soap bars are not the most hygenic items and a lot of the time soap has been replaced with hand wash, but I always like to have a Dove bar on the go, for a little bit of luxury, which doesn't break the bank.
I pick these Dove Cream Bars up from Poundland, a twin pack for £1, and I absolutely love them for my bathroom.
The twin packs are fairly tightly wrapped in a white cellophane with the familiar blue and white colours and the gold dove logo. They look anything but a cheap purchase. It is quite tricky to break into the packs, so tightly are they wrapped, but once inside, each bar of soap is in an individual box in the same colours. The boxes are really easy to open and are just thin cardboard so easy to recycle. Out of the box, the soaps are sparkling white, quite large and chunky, about an inch thick, and an oval curved shape with the Dove logo embossed into the top.
Using the soap to wash my hands or in the shower, it always lathers up really easily, and the rich lather is really soft and smells beautiful. The smell is quite strong, yet the smell, such as it is, is at the same time not overpowering, it's a delicate scent and it also even leaves its pleasant fragrance behind in the bathroom afterwards.
When you rub the soap on your skin it feels like a bit of indulgence because it is so soft and, in a small way, even luxurious (if a soap could be!). I even use this bar as soap for shaving my legs, because it lathers so easily, and even doing that there has never been a hint of drying out of my skin. I totally buy into the moisturising benefits of this bar, and why it is described/branded as a "cream bar", not just a "soap bar".
The other good thing about these bars is that they last well, and unlike other soap bars I've used in the past, they don't crack and start to look dirty or unsightly. They are a good looking, good feeling, great smelling important part of my bathroom setup and my everyday routine.
Dove is one of those everyday brands that is widely available and very popular. It is advertised as gentle on the skin and I have used many of their other bath/shower products, such as shower gels and bubble baths etc but this dove beauty cream bar is always in stock in my cupboard. Having used it as a child I know that if all else fails I can wash with this product and know it gets the job done!
This beauty cream bar is a white, oval shaped bar, with the word dove engraved and an appropriately placed picture of a dove underneath. It is a moisturising cream so contains 1/4 of moisturising cream within the bar to add extra moisture to your skin throughout washing. I tend to use this soap bar with my flannel when washing, normally in the bath as opposed to in the shower when I will usually use a shower gel. In light with this, I have a wet flannel and I rub the soap bar quite vigorously together and it lathers up and I cream/wash my body with the lather of gathered from the soap bar.
This soap is really a bar which shows it's quality and value as it is fantastic for washing and leaving me feel fresh and clean. It lathers amazingly, giving a rich, creamy, thick texture which when rubbed on my skin removes dirt very easily and leaves me feeling sparkling clean! I don't have baths too often (not that I'm nasty just don't have the time! Much easier to jump in shower for 5 mins than soak in the bath, especially when you have a demanding 3 year old!) so when I do have a bath I always reach for this soap to give me a good, thorough clean!
I love that it is made from 1/4 moisturising cream as I definitely notice the difference. Usually after baths my skin feels dry and I need to use loads of moisturiser to make my skin feel soft and supple again. However, after using this dove bath moisturising cream, I genuinely notice the cream element and it leaves my skin delicate and fully nourished and so I use a lot less moisturiser than I would after a shower where I find other products do cleanse my skin but also drain it of my own natural moisture levels.
These bars are relatively inexpensive as I usually can pick up a pack of 4 bars for £2.20 in my local market. One bar does last me a long time so I see it as good value for money and so overall I have to give Dove soap a whopping 5 stars!
Dove is a soap and personal care brand (including hair care products) owned by Unilever / Dove soap is formulated to be pH neutral, with a pH that is usually between 6 / 5 and 7 / 5 /
