This is a bar cleanser that can be irritating and drying for all skin types. Guys who are still convinced that a cleanser needs to be in bar form to be effective (or at least more masculine than a water-soluble creamy or liquid cleanser) need to know that the ingredients that keep this in bar form contribute to clogged pores and dry, dull-looking skin. This isn’t “CARE” for any man’s skin; you’d be doing much better with any of Dove’s body washes, most of which have neutral scents that men won’t shy away from.
Dove Men+Care Deep Clean Body and Face Bar with Dove ¼ moisturizing cream and purifying micro grains provides a deep clean while fighting skin dryness. It thoroughly cleanses and rinses off easily without leaving skin feeling dry and tight like regular soap does. For total skin comfort and the refreshment you want.

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.
