Product Review: Dove VisibleCare, ‘Toning’

Here is the code for your Review Badge:

BlogHer thought I might be interested in doing a review for Dove, who has a new line of cream body washes. I’m on an never-ending search to find THE shower gel/cream/soap that will leave my skin feeling like I don’t need to roll around in butter afterward.

I’m afraid my search continues.

As far as shower soaps go, it’s pretty good. The scent is nice, light, and not too perfume-y, and it gives a great lather. No wonder–Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLS) is the fifth ingredient. But this formula left me wanted for moisture, despite the company claiming that it was it’s “highest concentration of NutriumMoisture and added Vitamin E. However, since Vitamin E is the very last ingredient, we can assume there’s not much of it in there. The cap, which is located at the bottom of the bottle, is somewhat unruly with slippery fingers. I know they were going for a nice, sleek design, but constantly have to turn the bottle upside down and right side up is just one extra step.

Dove also claims that the cleanser will help your skin look better over time, and my skin all over is looking better. But who knows why? Could be the kale, fish oil, or all the water I’ve been drinking lately.

Final word: I don’t hate it. I don’t love it. But I’ve used much worse, and if this was all I had to wash myself for the rest of my life, I wouldn’t cry over it.
