Dove Beauty Bars have been a staple in my life since early childhood, and as an adult their Beauty Bars and Body Washes continue to inhabit my bathrooms, and are reached for by my family on a daily basis. The new Dove Anti-Stress Micellar Water Body Wash and Dove Anti-Stress Micellar Water Beauty Bar are among my personal favorites that I think you will love as well. I have also featured a few of my other Dove favorites that are in current rotation.

Dove Anti-Stress Micellar Water Body Wash ($5.49 for 22 oz. from Target, Walmart, and Walgreens): This ultra-gentle lathering body wash, with its fresh and clean fragrance, effectively lifts all dirt without stripping or drying the skin. It nourishes and lightly hydrates, and even soothes irritated dry skin. Dove suggests that it can be used on the body and face, but I only use it on my body.

According to Dove,

What is micellar water, and why have we introduced micellar water technology into our new stress relief body wash? Well, in a world with rising urbanization, pollution and environmental changes, women are seeking a more calming body wash. One with a formula that can help defend against environmental stressors while providing the gentlest care for the most sensitive skin.

For that reason, more women are turning to the cleansing power of micellar technology, where tiny micelle particles surround and gently lift away dirt and impurities which are then rinsed away without any harsh rubbing required. This new Dove body wash combines all of the micellar water benefits with the gentleness you’ve come to expect from a Dove nourishing body wash. Designed to reduce the effects of harmful environmental stressors that can damage, dry out, and irritate your skin, our new mild body wash with micellar water cleansers brings anti-stress skin care to a new level. Calm your skin by washing away environmental stressors like dirt & grime with Dove's gentle Anti-Stress Micellar body wash.

Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Lauroyl Isethionate, Glycerin, Sodium Chloride, Phenoxyethanol, Lauric Acid, Fragrance (Parfum), Sodium Isethionate, PEG-150 Distearate, Tetrasodium EDTA, Stearic Acid, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Acrylates Copolymer, Red 33 (CI 17200).

Dove Anti-Stress Micellar Water Beauty Bar ($5.49 for 4 bars from Target, Walmart and Walgreens): This rich and creamy lathering beauty bar, which has the same fresh and clean fragrance as the Micellar Water Body Wash, is mild and gentle on the skin, and it neither strips, nor leaves it dry. In fact, it hydrates the skin and leaves it soft and smooth. I have even lathered it up to shave my legs, and found it very effective.

According to Dove,

To help protect against the effects of pollution and environmental stressors, Dove has developed a mild and gentle cleanser designed to soothe stressed out skin. This new Dove beauty bar combines the cleansing benefits of micellar water with the nourishment of Dove. So, what are micelles and how does micellar water work? When using a micellar water cleanser, tiny cleansing micro-molecules – when mixed with water – form spheres called micelles that attract and trap dirt and impurities like magnets which are then gently rinsed away without irritating skin. And unlike regular soap bars that can dry out your skin, this Dove bar also contains our classic ¼ moisturizing cream to nourish as it cleanses by replenishing your skin’s nutrients, leaving it feeling softer and smoother.

It’s time to treat your skin to an exceptionally delicate Dove beauty bar that cleans as gently as a Dove sensitive skin bar and is suitable for daily use on face, body, and hands. For best results, lather up your Dove Beauty Bar and massage the smooth, creamy lather over your face and body before rinsing thoroughly. For soft, smooth hands, you can also enjoy regular hand-washing throughout the day with your Dove bar. Soap may dry out your hands, but the classic moisturizing formula of Dove bars will leave skin softer, smoother and healthier-looking.

Ingredients: Sodium Lauroyl Isethionate, Stearic Acid, Sodium Tallowate, Sodium Stearate, Warter (Aqua), Lauric Acid, Sodium Isethionate, Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate, Sodium Cocoate, Fragrance (Parfum), Dipropylene Glycol, Sodium Chloride, Tetrasodium Etidronate, Tetrasodium EDTA, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891)
Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash ($4.79-$6.99 for 22 oz. from TargetHarmon Face ValuesBed, Bath & BeyondWalgreens 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 Sensitive Skin Body Wash ($4.79-$6.99 for 22 oz. from TargetBed, Bath & BeyondWalgreens, 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,

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 Gentle Exfoliating Body Wash (Not shown. $4.79-$6.99 for 22 oz. from TargetWalgreensBed, Bath & BeyondHarmon 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. 

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 Deep Moisture Shower Foam ($5.99 for 13.5 oz. from Target, Walmart and Walgreens): This airy and light shower foam has a subtle and fresh aroma that, to me, smells like summer. The soft and airy lather is creamy and gentle against the skin, and it neither strips it, nor leaves it in the least bit dry. Skin is left soft, smooth and lightly hydrated.

According to Dove,

Your body wash should nourish your skin with goodness, as well as cleanse. Providing an extra boost of nourishment, Dove Shower Foam Deep Moisture Foaming Body Wash gently refreshes and cares for your skin with its instant, lightweight foam with an airy texture. The result: skin that’s beautifully clean, soft and smooth.

Nourishing deep* into the surface layers of your skin, Dove Shower Foam Deep Moisture Foaming Body Wash is formulated with our NutriumMoisture™ technology. Made with skin natural lipids and moisturizers to help support a healthy skin barrier, this foaming body cleanser helps your skin look and feel more beautiful.

Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Sodium Lauroyl Glutamate, Glycerin, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Lauroyl Glycinate, Lauric Acid, Fragrance (Parfum), Polysorbate 20, Sodium Laurate, Phenoxyethanol, PPG-9, Citric Acid, Stearic Acid, Tetrasodium EDTA, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate.

Dove Sensitive Skin Shower Foam ($5.99 for 13.5 oz. from Target, Walgreens and Walmart): The foaming cleanser has precisely the same detectable attributes as the Deep Moisture Shower Foam, but it is formulated for people with sensitive skin. It is not fragrance-free, but instead has a subtle fresh aroma. It neither strips the skin, nor does it leave it in the least bit dry our taut. I find that my skin is left soft, smooth and lightly hydrated.

According to Dove,

If you have sensitive skin, you know it needs extra-special care to look its beautiful best. Hypoallergenic Dove Shower Foam Sensitive Skin Foaming Body Wash provides the care your skin needs. With a mild and soothing foam formula that helps minimize dryness, this body wash for sensitive skin gently cleanses and nourishes, leaving you feeling soft, smooth and refreshed.

Overall Assessment: I always repurchase Dove body washes and body bars, and these are definite favorites in my household.
