Anyway, I want to tell you about my Dove Love. Dove partnered with our Summer Transformation and sent over an amazing hamper full of their awesome products for us to try. I've always been a big fan of the brand and their Real Beauty ethos, so it's been such a treat getting to try out all their products and I've definitely fallen even more in love with their entire range.
Here are my thoughts on the products I've been using.
Dove Firming Body Lotion
I love this one. It smells really summery and easily absorbed. Maybe it's just in my head, but I do feel like my skin is a little more tight-in-a-good-way after I've applied it. I'll definitely be using this in the mornings before I head to the beach.
Dove Hydro Nourishment
This is an amazing every day product. It doesn't really smell like anything I can put my finger on, but whenever Nash smells it says "You smell really nice", so I suppose the fragrance can be described as that- Really Nice. It's moisturizing without being oily or sticky and it keeps your skin smooth throughout the day. I love this one!
Dove Summer Glow
To be honest, I've only used this one twice. I'm saving it for when Cape Town finally decides to stop playing winter-winter. I find it a little sticky, but not too much so that it's unpleasant. You just need to give it a little while before you slip into your skinny pants. Also, does anyone have a tip for applying this to your back? I'm going to be golden all over, but have a very white back. Send me your tips!
Dove Intensive Repair Shampoo & Daily Treatment Conditioner
The swimming pool water hasn't been great to my hair so this product has been a life saver. I mentioned before that I really like Aussie products, but they gave me a chronically itchy scalp! So I've been using the Dove Intensive Repair Shampoo and Cnditioner exclusively, and I haven't had any more itchy. This product actually won product of the year last year and I can see why. It's a luxury product at a entry-level price. Nice.
Dove Go Fresh Nourishing Beauty Shower
I LOVE the smell of this product! I have mentioned many times how much I hate the idea of smelling like any kind of fruit or dessert and this product is exactly the smell I've been looking for. Freshness. It smells like cold showers in the summer. Such an awesome product and keeps your skin soft and smooth.
I was also loving their Cream Oil body wash, but sadly I forgot it at Daisies along with their Indulgent Nourishment Shea Butter body lotion :( But those two products were two of my favourites! Perfect for post-swim nourishment and before-bed lathering. They also smell really good.
Dove Invisible Dry
Hello, why have I only just started using this product? I can't believe I've gone all this time trying to do weird acrobatic movements so as not to get white marks on my black tops when I could just have been using this all along?
Dove Beauty Finish
You might be wondering "why would I need a deodorant that contains pearlescent mica, a beauty mineral that is known to enhance the natural look of skin and to help underarms look gorgeous all day long- you needs beautiful underarms anyway?" Well gurl, get your act together! Red, raw underarms never did anyone any favours and this products smells really pretty too.
As I said, I've always loved Dove and I've been loyal to their brand since as far back as I can remember. Did you know that they only use real women in their ads? Real women as in you and me. Not models who get paid to spend 8 hours a day focusing on their looks. I think that's pretty flipping cool.
