Who has been using Dove since their childhood? 🙂 It has always been a well known household brand! I always choose Dove when I go overseas and see it on the supermarket shelf haha, especially when I’m in South East Asia it’s very popular there!
I’m sure most of you have used these products before but I will go through each of these anyway! I have gotten a few products from the “Go Fresh” range: body lotion, soap, body wash and face cleanser. Followed by a tinted moisturiser, shampoo and conditioner, deodorant and their new Pure Care Dry Oil for hair! I have been obsessed with this product lately haha 🙂
Starting with the Go Fresh range! I love this range because of the refreshing smell and feeling it leaves me! It smells like freshly cut cucumbers and green tea hehe. This is the body lotion! My skin type is normal so I didn’t have any problems with this 🙂
It has a light pale green colour, with an amazing subtle scent! The hydration level of this lotion is amazing, it leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth AND it doesn’t feel sticky! Big plus haha 🙂 It dries very quickly too so you can definitely use this in the day time before you head out.
I always like to apply my body lotion after I come out of the shower, I feel like my skin can absorb the product well!
Next up is the body wash 🙂 Again, it has the same cucumber and green tea scent and I love the smell it leaves on my skin! This is so perfect for the hot Summer season when it gets so humid and hot that you want your body to feel and smell refreshing 🙂
It has a thick gel-like texture that is tinted with a pale green colour with micro shimmer 🙂 A little bit goes a long way! I like to squeeze a 10 cent shape amount on to a shower puff and lather it on the wet skin! It foams up lightly and leaves my skin feeling soft 🙂
I find that using the whole Go Fresh range together works really well! 🙂 I also love the packaging design of Dove products; white, sleek and lightweight to take it with you during your travels!
Now on to the face cleanser 🙂 Again, it contains the same scent and this one is suitable for all skin types! I have normal to oily skin and it works fine!
The texture of this cleanser is slightly thick and creamy! So you need very little because it foams up well 🙂 What I like to do, is the remove all my makeup with a makeup remover, then wet my face with some water and lather the cleanser onto my face with circle hand motions. After doing this for a few minutes I rinse it off with warm water then towel pat my face dry 🙂
This cleanser doesn’t leave my skin feeling dry which is perfect! It makes it feel smooth and squeaky clean haha. I only like to use a face cleanser once a day during the night!
Last but not least, in this Go Fresh range, is the beauty cream bars!
It comes in a pack of 2, which are packaged individually to keep it fresh and protected! Soaps get ruined so easily haha
I love that each soap is packaged separately in a cardboard box 🙂
Inside contains a block of beauty cream bar! I love the smell of this 🙂 It lathers easily with water and it moisturises my skin unlike some soaps which can leave it feeling dry.
100g is an average size for soap which will last you a few months depending how much you use and how often you use it!
Now on to the shampoo and conditioner from the Hair Therapy range! This is the Nourishing oil care type for dry hair. It’s perfect for me because my hair is quite dry from using purple shampoo and dying it haha.
300ml is an average size for shampoo/conditioner and this can last you a few months depending how often you wash your hair! I like to wash my hair every 3-4 days haha. I know it sounds dirty, but it’s better for your hair in the long run! In between washes, I’ll use my Batiste dry shampoo 🙂
As you can see from the swatches, the shampoo has a clear, thick, gel-like texture with a slight yellow tint of colour and shimmer! The conditioner, however has a creamier texture with an opaque light yellow colour. Both smell amazing and subtle!
A close up of both textures 🙂 It’s good to see that my hair doesn’t feel dry when I use this combo! The shampoo foams a little and cleans my scalp. The conditioner leaves my hair feeling soft and smooth! When I dry my hair I can feel the difference compared to other conditioners I have used 🙂
One of my fav deodorant brands is Dove! It keeps my underarms fresh all day 🙂 My body odour isn’t that strong so I am very lucky, I usually don’t use deodorant but when it comes to Summer I like to use it just in case! I like the wide range of deodorants that Dove has to offer 🙂
This one is a classic one that contains no fragrance, parabens, colorants and alcohol! Plus!! 🙂 It doesn’t dry out my under arms nor leave white marks on them or my clothes. I prefer non-scented deodorants! It’s super convenient that it’s in a twist and lock cap and it comes with a roller ball which makes application easy peasy! You only need a sheer layer and it’s enough.
Now it’s the tinted moisturiser 🙂 I’m a lover of these and BB/CC creams during my days off because I wear foundation to work and I like to keep natural on my days off. I like my products to have some sort of sun protection from SPF15+, especially when I’m outdoors 🙂 With 50ml of product, this is higher than your usual 30ml product you get so it will last you longer and is better valve for what you pay!
It is housed in a classic tube with a snap on lid to secure it. This is moisturising with a satin finish so it gives you a radiant looking complexion! The coverage is sheer-light and it doesn’t feel oily 🙂
I usually have problems with most tinted moisturisers because the colour range is usually limited to around 3 colours to choose from! Since I am Asian, my skin tone is yellow with blue under tones. This colour “Beige” is the closest match but it’s still slightly leaning more to a pink undertone haha. If I use a powder that has more yellow in it, then it balances out my skin tone so it matches my body!
I’m saving the best till last hehe 😉 Like I said earlier, I have been OBSESSED with this product! Who knew Dove would launch a hair serum? This is the new Pure Care Dry Oil for hair that contains African Macadamia oil 🙂 This was launched a few months ago and I have been using it for almost 2 months now!
I love macadamia oil in hair products because I find it to be very nourishing and hydrating! Even though this is a “dry oil”, it does not feel oily at all! Or leave my hair feeling weighed down and stuck together like some hair serums do! The scent of this oil is so pleasant too 🙂 This is suitable for all hair types which is great!
I first towel dry or blow dry my hair, but leave it semi dry, then I take 4 pumps of oil and rub it between my hands, then run my hands through my hair from the tip to the middle lengths. I find that it instantly smoothes my hair and de-frizzes it haha! Having long hair can be annoying because it gets tangled so easily!
You can see that this type of oil doesn’t look thick! Which is why I like it, it’s lightweight, fast absorbing and I can quickly style my hair afterwards 🙂 I also love the packaging!! It’s sleek, simple and housed in a very sturdy and heavy jar which I love to hold haha.
I hope this post has been informative and helpful 🙂 You can find Dove easily in most supermarkets and chemists! If you look around, sometimes there may be a discount on them 😉
