New Contest! Dove Body Wash Trio

Fall is just around the corner and changing seasons mean a change in our beauty needs for our skin. I love Fall is one of my favorite seasons in the Pacific Northwest, warm days and cool nights and sweater weather! But as the cool winds start to blow and the temps drop I need to step up on caring for my skin to keep it hydrated for the cooler months. If you have read this blog for long you will know I am a long time Dove addict, and if you ever come over and I don’t have Dove products in the shower alert the government the alien takeover has started!

Dove’s core line of body washes have a perfect cleanser for everyone. And they don’t just settle for clean, Dove body washes have  25% more Glycinate in the. What is glycinate? It’s an ultra-mild cleanser primarily found in premium face products, but Dove loves all your skin and  this addition makes their body washes even milder. While mild cleansers have historically lacked the ability to produce great lather, the formula has broken the body wash paradigm, allowing women to enjoy the rich lather they love and the mildness their skin needs.

You can now feel the difference both during and after cleansing as Dove Body Washes use only the gentlest cleansers to provide softer, smoother skin after just one shower. The Dove Purely Pampering and Dove go fresh collections are also now available in the formula, so that all women can enjoy its beauty benefits no matter their fragrance preference.

And Dove and MakeHerUp want you to  have the beautiful, smooth and soft skin everyone deserves. Enter on the widget below to win a 3 pack of Dove’s core body washes and a few of my favorites.
