Its hard to write about something as iconic as the Dove Beauty Bar. Granted, I grew up using whatever soap was on sale, but whenever someone in my family had skin issues or sensitivity we would always turn to Dove.
So its almost reassuring that 10+ years later the Dove bar still looks and smells the same :)
I had the opportunity to try out and share my thoughts on Dove. Out of curiosity I asked if the formulation was still the same, and was suprised to learn that it was. I guess its like KFC - you really shouldn't mess with a tried and tested recipe :P
The bar has the pleasant signature scent of Dove. Its hard to describe until you've smelt it - I would say its almost like a floral clean scent? I love the smell though, its the kind of smell I can inhale all day.
When comparing the bar to regular soap, the bar definitely feels gentler and less drying. Like most Dove products, it claims to contain 1/4 moisturizer which is great in the dry winter weather. In fact, my boyfriend who has eczema finds it works well even on his dry, itchy skin.
So have you tried Dove before? What did you think?
