Product Review - Dove Beauty Moisture Body Wash

Dove Beauty Moisture Body Wash

   As winter draws near, it also brings with it dry, rough and flaky skin. Been using the Dove Beauty Moisture Body Wash in a bid to protect my skin from winter dryness and reviewing the same here today. Let's see how it fares.

   Product Description: Here's the story of beautiful skin in one word: Moisture.
Which is why Dove with 1/4 moisturizing milk is made to give you beautifully moisturized texture, convert moisture into softness, moisturize the skin where glow begins.
The point? To indulge your skin, not merely the senses. Your skin will feel pleasantly soft, smooth and moisturized.
Don't use occasionally. In skincare, everyday is everything.

Dove Beauty Moisture Body Wash

   Price: Rs. 125/-
   Volume: 200 ml.
   Shelf Life: 24 months.
   How to use: Squeeze body wash onto a wet pouf or wash cloth and work into rich, creamy lather.
   Ingredients: Water, Sodium Laureth Sulphate, Glycerin, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Fragrance, Cocamide MEA, Acrylates Coploymer, Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Isopropyl Palmitate, Guar Hyraxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Sodium Chloride, DMDM Hydantoin, Propylene Glycol, Citric Acid, Tetrasodium EDTA.

Dove Beauty Moisture Body Wash

   The body wash comes in a sturdy, white dispenser with a flip cap and has a mild fragrance which isn't overpowering and subsides in just a little time. A small amount of body wash creates good amount of lather with just a little addition of water which cleanses and moisturizes the skin well. Normally, during winter the skin on my arms gets dry and flaky but ever since I've started using this particular body wash, it has retained the moisture even without the use of a moisturizer after taking bath and helped my skin become smoother and more supple than before. The only issue about this body wash for me is that it leaves a creamy residue on my skin which takes a little time to get rid of! 

Dove Beauty Moisture Body Wash

- Available in a sturdy, travel friendly bottle.
- Mildly fragrant.
- Moderate in consistency, neither too runny nor too thick.
- A small amount of product is enough to cleanse the skin well.
- Lathers abundantly.
- Moisturizes skin well.

- Easy on the pocket!
- Widely available across India.

- Leaves a creamy residue on skin which is not easy to rinse off.
- People with extremely dry skin might need a moisturizer for better skin protection.
- Personally I prefer a fragrance which lasts longer.

   Verdict: 4.5/5. Works wonderfully well for my skin type, especially in this weather! A big thumbs up!

The Nature's Co. Citronella Insect Repellent Spray 

   Straight from the Founder of TNC, Natasha Shah, below are few precautions and tips on how you can avoid mosquitoes and insect bites and massively reduce the risk against your health and the discomfort of being bitten.
- Use insect repellents on exposed skin before you get bitten - not after!
- Wear light colored clothing during the day. 
- Avoid shady spots. Biting is less common in sunshine and brightly lit areas.
- Avoid sheltered spots, a breeze will make it hard for mosquitoes, midges and many other insects to find you. 
- Avoid areas close to water and waterlogged grounds where insects hatch or breed.  
- Wear loose long sleeved tops and trousers to cover exposed skin on arms and legs, particularly at dawn and dusk when mosquitoes bite the most. 
- Repellent treated clothing provides extra protection. 
- Close mosquito screens and hang mosquito nets before dusk. 
- Use a mosqui-go, mosquito coils or insecticide spray to clear rooms of insects before you retire for the night. 
   She ends saying, "Travel confidently, enjoy your holiday, and keep the unnecessary at bay!"
