Dove has always made amazing skin care products that moisturize, cleanse and nourish your skin. I think that most of us would agree that we trust our skin with Dove. That’s what made this Dove Shower Foam so surprising. This soap is missing that extra soft and gentle skin care feel that I am so accustomed to with Dove soap. The foam feels thin and airy. I know that’s what it should feel like, but when applying it also feels too thin. It doesn’t spread well with your shower puff, so I need to use a lot of soap for just one shower. Post-shower this Dove soap made my skin feel dry. I still love Dove soap, but this one came up short.
Another month is gone, and even with one extra day February still seemed extra short this year. Regardless, I still found the time to discover a few hot new products that I am in love with!
Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Concealer – I have almost said good bye to foundation these last few weeks thanks to this new concealer. This concealer is made specifically for erasing those dark circles under the eyes. It’s perfect for that, but it also works at concealing any other annoying spots on your face with perfect precision. I find it incredibly hard to find a concealer that I love and can depend on. This one is simple and effective in all the right ways.
Clarins Wonder Perfect Mascara – I have tried a lot of bad mascaras lately. I thought about writing a post about all of the bad ones, but instead I’m going to celebrate the one great one! This new mascara has been my new favourite. Imagine long, thick, curled lashes every single day. It’s max colour and volume that is perfect for day or night!
Pond’s Wet Cleansing Towelettes – Who needs regular face wash when you have these towels on hand? These Pond’s wipes are everything you want in a regular face wash, without having to worry about water and rinsing. They give a great clean that leaves my face feeling refreshed. They are also surprisingly moisturizing. I shouldn’t be too surprised though… it’s Pond’s after all. I love their baby powder soft scent too for a before bed clean.
Dove Quench Absolute Hair Care – This line doesn’t technically hit shelves until next month, but I need to tell you now so that you can rush to stores in March!!! I have tried Dove hair products before, but they didn’t leave a lasting memory. This new line though shocked me. In the shower, this Dove shampoo and conditioner didn’t seem like anything special, it was only after it dried that I was impressed. Time after time, this Dove hair line left my hair soft and moisturized. My curls were bouncy, and that never happens! Frizz was a distant memory. I see a future of soft beautiful hair, hopefully not just for me, but you too!
Vichy Normaderm 3 In 1 Cleanser + Scrub + Mask – I already loved the Normaderm line. It’s my favourite of all of Vichy’s skin care products. Imagine my glee when Vichy added to the collection with a product that isn’t just a cleanser. It isn’t just a scrub. It isn’t just a mask either. It’s gentle enough to be able to be used regularly. You can also leave it on your face as a pore cleansing mask. When budgets are tight, this is the kind of smart products that one needs!
There is nothing better than getting compliments on your hair, am I right? After using the Dove Dry Oil shampoo, condition and oil just one time, the compliments kept pouring in.
Hair oils are more than just a trend. At this point, every woman does (or should) have some variety of oil in their arsenal. Dove has joined the ranks of affordable hair oils with their Dry Oil collection that includes a shampoo, creamy conditioner and silky Macadamia Oil.
When I was using the shampoo and conditioner I didn’t think much of it. It seemed like any other drug store brand. I feared that it would be oily and greasy, but the product was thick and creamy instead. The scent of macadamia oil was soft and light. I applied the oil onto my damp hair post shower. It all seemed to act fairly normal.
As my hair dried the true beauty was revealed. My hair was soft and smooth. My colour looked richer and more vibrant than ever before. Instead of frizz, I had soft natural waves. My hair was light and so soft to the touch. Everything about it was perfect. It was so easy to manage. Everyone started complimenting me on my gorgeous shiny hair.
Dove is all about helping women embrace their inner natural beauty. This Dry Oil hair care collection has definitely helped me love my hair again!
