Covet-Worthy Dove Body Washes & Beauty Bars | Review

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

I have used Dove Beauty Bars since I was a kid. We always had their wonderful bars in our showers and bathtubs, and in fact they are nostalgic for me since they made up part of the landscape of my childhood. I have always loved them, and as an adult I have always sought out their bars and body washes to fill my bathtubs as showers as well. Here are a few of my current favorites that have earned pride of place in my household, and that my family loves!
Dove Sensitive Skin Body Wash ($4.79-$6.99 for 22 oz. from Target, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Walgreens, and other national retailers): If you have sensitive skin, then this ultra-gentle sulfate-free body wash is a perfect choice. It is a non-stripping and moisturizing body wash that has a rich and creamy lather. It has a light and clean fragrance, but it is neither cloying, nor long-lasting. This body wash is creamy, emollient and hydrating enough that I can use it to shave my legs and underarms!

According to Dove,

All skin deserves gentleness, which is why Dove is made with 100% gentle cleansers, is sulfate free, and #1 dermatologist recommended. 

Those of us with sensitive skin know all too well that it needs special care – and how much of a relief it is when we find a body wash that provides that. A good sensitive skin body wash is designed with the needs of delicate skin in mind. And we know one that fits the bill: Dove Sensitive Skin Body Wash, a dermatologist-recommended, hypoallergenic body wash that looks after sensitive skin while still providing the rich lather that we all love.

Dove doesn’t leave skin stripped of nutrients after washing. That’s because the formula has mild cleansers, to help your skin retain nutrients as you shower, as well as NutriumMoisture™, which replenishes any nutrients that are lost. It helps to maintain your skin’s moisture barrier as you wash, and leaves you with softer, smoother skin after just one shower. Dove Sensitive Skin Body Wash is hypoallergenic: it’s our best body wash for sensitive skin. 

Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Hydroxypropyl Starch Phosphate, Lauric Acid, Sodium Lauroyl Glycinate, Sodium Lauroyl Isethionate, Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Sodium Chloride, Glycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Stearic Acid, Citric Acid, Fragrance (Parfum), Sodium Isethionate, BHT, Tetrasodium EDTA, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate.

Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash ($4.79-$6.99 for 22 oz. from Target, Harmon Face Values, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Walgreens and other national retailers): This is a rich and creamy body wash that has a rich, dense, creamy and emollient lather. It is very moisturizing, and it leaves the skin soft, silky smooth and hydrated. Like the sensitive skin variant, it has a light fresh aroma, and I find it emollient enough to use for shaving my legs and under arms. Though it is very moisturizing, it leaves behind no greasy residue, and washes away clean.

According to Dove,

Who doesn’t like having soft skin? We all want to keep our skin looking healthy and well cared for, and it’s much easier to make that a regular part of your routine if you’ve found a moisturizing body wash. That’s the best way to feel confident that you’re nurturing your skin right from the start of your day. We know how you can do just that – with Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash. 

All skin deserves gentleness. This moisturizing and mild body wash combines NutriumMoisture™ with 100% gentle cleansers to help your skin retain its natural moisture, leaving you with softer, smoother skin after just one shower. The caring #1 Dermatologist recommended formula in this Dove body wash helps maintain your skin’s moisture barrier while delivering natural skin nourishment that goes deep into the surface layers of your skin. It creates a rich lather that replenishes your skin’s nutrients while also leaving it feeling cared for and clean.

Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Hydroxypropyl Starch Phosphate, Lauric Acid, Sodium Lauroyl Glycinate, Sodium Lauroyl Isethionate, Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Sodium Chloride, Glycerin, Fragrance (Parfum), Phenoxyethanol, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Stearic Acid, Citric Acid, Sodium Isethionate, BHT, Tetrasodium, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate.

Dove Gentle Exfoliating Body Wash ($4.79-$6.99 for 22 oz. from Target, Walgreens, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Harmon Face Values and other national retailers): I love using exfoliating body washes, but I prefer gentle ones that neither strip, nor over-exfoliate the skin. This gentle exfoliating body wash has soft and uniformly round exfoliating beads that do not traumatize or over-exfoliate the skin. Instead, this richly creamy and emollient body wash gently exfoliates the skin, and leaves it super soft, smooth and hydrated. It has a light and clean aroma that is quite pleasant.

According to Dove,

Are you wondering how to nourish skin and revitalize your senses at the same time? A body wash with a vibrant scent that also cares for your skin while you wash could be just the thing you’re looking for. And with Dove’s Go Fresh range, you can get a light, hydrating feel and refreshing formula that lets you nourish your skin in the shower each day, and refresh your mind and body at the same time. That’s why we’ve created Dove Go Fresh Revitalize Body Wash, with a vibrant mandarin and tiarĂ© flower scent and a nourishing formula that leaves you and your skin feeling refreshed and hydrated.

All skin deserves gentleness, which is why Dove is sulfate free, and #1 dermatologist recommended. 

If you’re wondering how to get softer skin, this body wash is here to help. It contains our gentlest cleansers and NutriumMoisture™ technology to nourish deep into the surface layers of your skin. This body wash leaves you with softer, smoother skin after just one shower. The combination of this caring formula and juicy, revitalizing scent leaves you with fresh, glowing skin.

Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Lauroyl Glycinate, Sodium Lauroyl Isethionate, Acrylates Copolymer, Lauric Acid, Glycerin, Fragrance (Parfum), Phenoxyethanol, Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Stearic Acid, BHT, Sodium Isethionate, PEG- 150 Pentaerythrityl Tetrastearate, PEG-2 Hydroxyethyl cocamide, Tetrasodium Edta, Etidronic Acid, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Citric Acid, Yellow 5 (Ci 19140), Red 33 (CI 17200).
Dove Sensitive Skin Beauty Bar ($3.19-$12.99 for 2-14 bar packs from TargetWalgreens and Bed, Bath & Beyond): If you have sensitive skin, then you likely seek a gentle soap that will neither strip, nor dry out your skin, and this bar definitely delivers. Furthermore, this bar leaves skin soft, smooth and not in the least bit taut.

According to Dove,

Dove Gentle Exfoliating Beauty Bar ($2.99-$12.99 for 2-14 bar packs from TargetWalgreens and Bed, Bath & Beyond): I am a huge fan of exfoliating soaps that are gentle, effective and do not strip the skin. This bar effectively exfoliates dead skin cells, but leaves the skin soft, smooth and never in the least bit stripped.

According to Dove,

Dove Gentle Exfoliating Beauty Bar combines our signature mild cleansers with ¼ moisturizing cream to cleanse and nourish your skin. And it also provides you with gentle exfoliation, washing away dirt and dead skin to leave your skin feeling beautiful and revitalized.

  1. Dove (meaning Unilever) was my client for a long time going back to my days at Ogilvy & Mather and my own consulting business, so I've been using their products, especially the Beauty Bar (a colloidal suspension) for decades. Good stuff! I need to try the Deep Moisture Body Wash soon
