Feeling good in the skin I’m in

I’ve always been a bar of soap kind of gal.  My children call me old school because I don’t prefer change.  But lately I’ve come to the realization that a bottle of body wash can be my friend.  I had an opportunity to try Dove® VisibleCare™ Toning Crème Body Wash with NutriumMoisture™ recently.  Let me tell you how a bottle of this beats a bar of soap any day of the week.

First of all, it’s much easier to cart around.  I hate packing a bar of soap for a trip to the gym, for example.  As it always comes back a slimy mess which has leaked all over my gym bag.  And I know what you’re thinking.

I am certainly one to avoid breaking a sweat at any cost, but hey, the gym has a FABULOUS steam room and jacuzzi, and a shower is a must afterwards.  (As is a large hat because of what ALL THE HUMIDITY does to my hair.)  I’m now able to pack my bottle of Dove VisibleCare Body Wash with ease, and I love the way it makes me feel as well as smell, which is a light hint of vanilla and citrus (two of my favorite scents).  The fragrance is heavenly.  Which is a good thing, because just now as I was taking another whiff of it so that I could better describe the smell, I may have squeezed a wee bit too hard and am now wearing it.

Also, I discovered quite by accident when my daughter pilfered the shave gel from my bathroom one morning, that this Dove VisibleCare does wonderful double duty as a shaving cream.

And then after a long hard day wrangling my offspring, there’s nothing I like better than to use my body wash for this:

Yes, I know, a pedicure now and again wouldn’t kill me…

I have very dry skin, and this Dove VisibleCare product not only is designed to promote the skin’s elasticity and strength, but it leaves me feeling soft and smooth and not at all dry.  It isn’t harsh either, as it contains a mild cleanser as well as Vitamin E.

Visibly more beautiful skin from a body wash.  I like that.  For more information on Dove products, visit them here.
