The Truth: Revealed
The Dove® Truth Files campaign helps women see the proof that Dove® is different. Dove® tested itself against other cleansers and the results are in: Dove® Body Wash and Beauty Bar provide superior care for skin.

A must have in my house. With three kids with sensitive skin it’s important I use a gentle cleanser that will get them clean without aggravating their skin. I love how soft and moisturized it leaves their skin and I feel better knowing it’s safe for their sensitive skin. 

The Dove® Beauty Bar does not strip your skin like soap. Since 1957 the Dove® Beauty Bar has cleaned skin as well as soap without stripping skin of essential nutrients, the way soap does. Dove® replenishes nutrients lost during cleansing and improves the surface texture of skin over time. The bar contains DEFI technology, a unique blend of cleansers and moisturizers that leaves skin soft and smooth and is proven to be more gentle and mild than soap.

I love body wash and am addicted to trying the newest or greatest smelling product. But I’ve noticed  they smell great but tend to leave my skin feeling tight and itcy especially in the cooler months. Recently I tried the new Dove Deep Moisture with Nutrium and it’s safe to say it’s my new go to body wash. I generally don’t  buy the same bottle of body wash twice because I like variety. Well when my Dove Body Wash ran out I couldn’t imagine using anything else.

The formula has a great soft, clean scent and I love how clean my skin feels after. With the heavy workouts I do I need something that really gets my skin clean.  The best part of the body wash though it how amazingly it moisturized my skin. After the first wash I noticed my skin felt really hydrated and not dry or itchy. Within a week my skin felt so great I didn’t need to slather myself with moisturizer every time I showered. 

Get your skin ready for Spring and exposed skin with the amazing New Dove Body wash, you are going to love how your skin feels!

Dove® Body Wash cares for skin better than other body washes. The improved Dove® Body Wash formula features glycinate, an ultra-mild cleanser primarily used in high-end face products, that has enabled the brand to create its mildest cleansing system to date. Only Dove® Body Washes combine gentle cleansing with NutriumMoisture® technology that takes a dual approach to healthy looking skin by repairing and maintaining its protective layer during cleansing.
