Day 21 – Dove Nutrium Body Wash Review and Giveaway

posted by Momo Fali on November 21, 2011

I hate winter. Actually, I hate fall, winter and spring. There, I said it.

There’s a lot that bothers me about every season except for summer; I don’t like the cold (not even a little bit), I don’t like gray skies and I really don’t like dry skin.

Short of picking up my family and moving to another part of the country, these are all things I have to deal with. I can wear sweaters, soak up the sunshine every time it peeks out from behind the clouds and I can moisturize. A lot.

I have lotion everywhere: the car, my purse, kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom, and, although it’s only November, I have already noticed the need for moisturizer is increasing. My hands are a little drier and I’m finding patches on my arms.  Grrr…

My kids don’t mind the change of weather patterns, especially when there’s a snow day, but, they too, have that darn dry skin. My son actually suffers from it worse than I do. I am always on the lookout for something that will make it better.

I have tried a lot of different soaps, with varying degrees of success. Long ago, I realized that Dove Beauty Bars worked the best at keeping my skin looking and feeling hydrated. It’s the only kind of bar soap I buy.

But, my skin…it is extra lizardy. So the good folks at Dove offered to send me Dove Nutrium Moisture Body Wash.

They know me. They really know me.

See, I was always worried about using a body wash because I thought that the extra scrubbing with a loofah would dry my skin out even more. I was way wrong.

After less than one week of using Dove Nutrium Moisture Body Wash, the dry patches on my arms were gone…without the need for lotion after my shower! Do you know what that means? It means that I can save a lot of money AND time from now on.

This body wash has become part of my daily routine to nourish myself. I’m trying to get more sleep, I’m drinking more water, taking time out of my work day to stretch and, generally, feeling really good on the inside, and Dove is taking care of the outside.

Dove wants you to feel good inside and out too, which is why they’re giving one lucky commenter a $100 Spafinder gift card!

    I take time to read or take a long bath to relax.

  • Ashley

    I have body wash A.D.D. so I switch around a lot. Looks like Dove has a variety of scents and body need specialties to choose from, which I like!

  • shelly

    I find that if I really drink a lot of water, my skin looks and feels better. But a massage would feel even better!

  • Rachel (Hounds in the Kitchen)

    I nourish myself by trying to make time for exercise in fresh air every day – just being outside clears my mind.

  • sarah

    I love Dove for this very reason.

  • Amy Tong

    What a great review post. 🙂

    I nourish myself each day by setting time aside for myself to plan and meditate. It’s a great way to unwind and relax.

    Good coffee! It starts the day out right and puts me in a good mood!

  • Lisa Daly

    I spend my me time after the boys are in bed to read or play on my iPad.

  • Jodi

    A moisture body wash that works, huh? I may have to go get some and give it a shot!

  • Lisa Daly

  • Cari Sherrod

    Every day I use the Dove body wash in the cucumber scent. It’s refreshing and the best smell ever! 🙂

  • Marianne

    I love Dove products. I’ve used their bar soap for years because it’s not drying. I have sensitive skin, so I’m limited in what I can tolerate.

  • Millicent

    now, if I were being really honest I would say “I drink a pot of coffee every morning”.
    But I don’t think that’s what you’re looking for. So I’ll go with my second choice–I take a long, hot shower every morning. And pretend I don’t hear the kids fighting!

  • Kimberly P.

    Ok, I love Dove products…seriously! Their shampoo and conditioner line are incredible. My hair is so dry in the winter and their conditioner brings it back to life. Thanks for the opportunity Momo Fali!

  • Mel S.

    I too have dry skin. Especially November through April! I will have to try this.

  • Stacy

    If you like their soap you should try their moisture shampoo…talk about yummy…i have super dry curly hair and i can use their moisture shampoo without conditioner and it feels soft and silky 🙂

  • Shaunna Ulrick

    Dove smells yummy 🙂

  • HK

    I apply hand lotion at work almost every single hour. It makes the day go by a LITTLE faster!

  • Erin

    I use Dove Shampoo and Conditioner. Just started with the Body wash in July and love it. Keeps me fresh and soft. No other is better.

  • Joni

    I shower daily with Dove, can’t really use anything else because it’s too harsh on my sensitive skin. Dove is the only soap that is gentle enough to use everyday!!! Couldn’t live without it!!

  • Amanda Helebrant

    I drink lots of water, wash with Dove soap and moisurize with Oil of Olay. I’ve had the same routine for years and it has served my skin well!

  • deana rooks

    A long bath with essential oils. ahhh! 🙂

  • Beth Wilson

    I use body washes with lotion, and often find myself using lotion throughout the day. I have Sjogrens Syndrome and one of the issues is dryness EVERYWHERE…so its bring on the lotions, body butters, Body Wash with creams…it may seem excessive, but its what I have to do, and love the scents I find.

  • Ashleigh

    Funny, I actually use the same Dove soap! I’m horrible at putting on lotion, but this body wash does the trick! Costco sells a large 3 pack for a ridiculous price! Love it!

  • Christina

    I nourish myself everyday with a small piece of chocolate. It’s good for the soul, and a small piece keeps me happy without wrecking my diet.

  • Michelle

    You’d totally laugh at me, but I walk around with a 40 ounce water bottle ALL the time. I gotta get my water!

  • Spinsterlicious

    My morning walk with my dog nourishes me every day.

    Working in my garden and caring for my children nourishes me

  • Linda

    I slather myself with lotion.

  • Anne

    Seriously, the only soap my family uses to bathe is Dove. Discovered Dove when we continued to battle dry, itchy skin (and ezcema) after moving to the south west from Hawaii. I’ve since upgraded to the body wash (3-pack from Costco). Lather with lotion after bathing and we’re good!

  • Wehaf

    I love to curl up with a cup of hot tea.

  • Sheeny

    I nourish myself everyday with an Iced French Vanilla Latte and some Lubriderm with Cocoa Butter.

  • Karen

    Taking time out just for me is merely a pipedream! I revel knowing that the shower is the only place I can be without hearing my name called out to referee an argument or locale of a missing item. That is only if I remember to lock the door.

  • steveAdor

    I use dove on my dog, and it’s great.

  • newlyweds next door

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    I norish myself by washing my face every night and getting a good nights sleep!

  • Christine

    I am a Dove girl all the way! I have exclusively used Dove soap since I was in my early twenties when a dermatologist told me it was the best out there. He was right!

    I nourish myself by taking time every evening to walk…starting to incorporate running, too. This is relatively new for me, and I’m amazed at how invigorating it is, and how it is positively affecting manynaspects of my daily life.

  • laura warner

    I really need softened up!!!
