Overview

This body lotion with sunscreen lacks the UVA-protecting ingredients of titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, avobenzone, Tinosorb or ecamsule (Mexoryl SX)and its lack of SPF rating is truly disturbing in a product subcategory concerned to make aging skin look its best.

The only reason to consider this lotion (though not for daytime application) is its AHA content, although the pH of 4 means it is only borderline for exfoliation. It's otherwise lackluster and not up to par with other body lotions at the drugstore from Olay, Aveeno, and CeraVe.

Note: This product was formerly named Pro Age Beauty Body Lotion.

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.
