This is a good moisturizing body wash from Dove, though 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.
Despite a name that may make you think otherwise, this body wash isn't as emollient or as moisturizing as many others from Dove. It's best for normal to oily skin and suitable if you're struggling with breakouts from the neck down.
As far as Dove's claim of this body wash giving you more beautiful skin in 3 weeks, that also applies to any well formulated body wash, including those form Dove. This version isn't a bad formula as much as it is a superfluous one.
Lastly, this formula is nearly identical to Dove's Visible Care Softening Creme Body Wash, so it really doesn't matter which one you choose.
More beautiful skin from a body wash? Absolutely. Designed to nourish and replenish skin, this unique formula - with our highest concentration of NutriumMoisture - contains skin natural building blocks to help improve skin's look over time. Use daily for softer, smoother skin in one week. And with continued use, skin is visibly more beautiful within 3 weeks.

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.
