Review, Price, Buy Online Dove Cream Beauty Bathing Bar
By Contributor: Vaidehee
Hey you guys! So i’ve been reviewing a bunch of things from dove lately, and so far, i have never been disappointed, and from the comments section, i’ve picked up that you guys haven’t been either. So today, continuing on with that little skin care and bath series, i’ll be reviewing their hyped soap bar i.e the Dove Cream Beauty Bathing Bar Moisturising Cream. Its supposed to be also used on face, atleast that’s their 7 day challenge tv ad claims.
Dove Claims: Wash off skin impurities with Dove Cream Beauty Bathing Bar.
Enriched with moisturizing cream formula it nourishes your skin.
Soft soap forms creamy lather and does not dry out skin.
Provides deep cleansing and removes dirt, excess oil.
Adds a glow to your body skin.
Packaging : The packaging for dove, i’ve loved so far. This however, is a bit disappointing and un appealing . But i’ve always been a fan of the colour scheme, and the bar itself is the classic old opaque white with the logo embossed on it.
Fragrance : Ah! The scent of the dove soap is something you’ll either love or hate. It’s in-your-face , and very strong as opposed to the face wash and the body wash . It’s that same old , sweet-clean edged dove fragrance , only , an -on-crack version .
Texture and Foaming : The texture of the dove bar is much much smoother than the other soaps from the drugstore, but no where near as buttery as the other hand-made ones. But on the bright side, it does tend to have a longer shelf life than those , and it doesn’t distort or melt through the summer . (Ah! that’s messy!) It foams up very well , and it’s a lot more rich in terms of the lather than some of the other drugstore soaps.
My take on the ingredients list : The first thing that jumps out is the 1/4 moisturizing cream remark. And it does have glycerin and a few other not-so-scary things listed , which is always a pleasant surprise to someone who is used to reading “Paraben, Silicone , SLS, EDTA” and all those other monsters under your bed.
The one thing that i was glad to check was that it had no SLS, as opposed to the pears one that i’ll review next. So technically, not a detergent ! Hallelujah!
My take on the Claims of Dove Cream Beauty Bathing Soap Bar:
This is a tough one, because it is a cleansing agent, and for it to “moisturize” is almost always a flase claim. The best you can get is , for it to not dry your skin out and that’s exactly what the dove bathing bar does. It’s way better than most drugstore soaps out there, and it definitely does manage to work well through the winter and keep your skin from turning reptilian dry and scaling.
What i don’t love about the Dove Cream Beauty Bathing Soap Bar:
- It’s not exactly moisturizing. That was over hyped.
- The fragrance is too bold and bang-on strong for most people.
Price: Rs. 45 is the retail value, which is rock-bottom drugstore
