Overview

This is another good moisturizing body wash from Dove, though like some of their other body washes, it’s a bit disappointing that it contains a small amount of soap ingredients (tallow acid) as these certainly weren’t needed in a formula that already contains sufficient non-soap cleansing agents.

Best for normal to dry skin that’s not prone to breakouts, this body wash lathers nicely, cushions skin as it cleanses, and leaves it feeling soft. It rinses decently, though won’t leave skin feeling residue-free. That can be fine for dry skin because the “residue” is mostly from the plant oils this contains. Those with oily, breakout-prone skin will likely not enjoy how this body wash makes their skin feel.

Like all Dove Body Washes, this contains fragrance.

Brand Overview

Dove At-A-Glance

Strengths: Inexpensive; available in every major drugstore and mass-market store; some very good body washes.

Weaknesses: The Beauty Bars are not as bad as true soaps, but all bar cleansers present problems for skin.

From its beginnings in the 1940s with its still-available original Beauty Bar, Dove has expanded and the curiously curtailed its selection of skin-care products to the point where their facial care offerings are back to nothing more than bar cleansers.

Although their Beauty Bars have their share of problems (such as containing drying ingredients and not rinsing well), they're better than traditional bar soap. However, if you can get past your propensity for bar cleansers, neighboring lines at the drugstore offer better, gentler, water soluble cleansers (the kind Dove has offered in the past).

Where Dove holds sway at the drugstore is with its vast selection of body washes. Although the formulas often differ only by fragrance, for the most part they are excellent, affordable options, especially for normal to dry skin. The body washes in their men's line aren't quite as elegant as those in the main line, and guys should know their skin will do just fine with Dove's regular body washes.

Note: All Dove products contain fragrance unless otherwise noted.
