I'm sure you'll have noticed if you've seen some of my favourites posts that I really love Dove's body washes, so it wasn't too much of a surprise to me that I like this moisturiser so much. I'm fairly certain that I got this sample size sent to me (join the withDove mailing list and they often send out samples!) at some stage, but this retails at £5.49 for 250ml (currently on offer for £3 at Adsa) - possibly more than I'd generally pay for a moisturiser, but I think this one could be worth it.
The product itself is a thin white cream, with a 'fresh' scent that reminds me of aloe vera and cucumber. It sinks into the skin really quickly and feels lovely and silky, though I'm not convinced it has a 'visible effect' on the condition of my skin. I'm also not convinced by the claims that it penetrates deep into the skin.... but it works- so I don't particularly care about the pseudo scientific claims.
My skin has felt really soft and smooth since using it and I think it's much better than other body moisturisers I've tried (bar The Body Shop Body Butter) and because of the light but deeply moisturising texture I think it would be especially good for hot weather and holidays- where you need the moisture but really don't want a thick, heavy formula that leaves you feeling sticky...
The ingredients are somewhat chemical heavy- but among the top ingredients are glycerin and urea- both great moisturisers, and it has definitely not irritated my skin at all (including the small patch of eczema I currently have inside my elbow) so I wouldn't worry too much about trying it if you have sensitive skin like me.
Overall I really love this body lotion, it's one of the most richly moisturising lotions I've tried- and has a lovely non-greasy formula, what's not to love! If you're in the market for a new body lotion I definitely recommend giving this one a try :)
