Dove Renewing Body Wash Review

When I was asked to review Dove's revolutionary line of premium body wash I was actually very excited.  As a food blogger, I stay very focused on all things eats and make a point to always keep my blog related to food and leave out the "other stuff".  But I do have tons of other stuff in my life, including a precious toddler and a full-time job that keep me very busy.  I have the tendency to stress easily and found (like most moms) that after I had a baby it is hard to find "me time".  And the thing I think I struggle with the most is that I don't really want "me time" if it means extended periods of time away from my Son.  I work all day and he attends Day Care, so in the evenings and on the weekends I can't get enough of him.  What I am saying is that I am not necessarily looking for a week long tropical getaway sans baby in order to relax.   It is the little pleasures in life these days that mean so much - like an uninterrupted shower!  I really have the most quiet in the shower and feel I can truly unwind, foster new ideas and take a "mommy break".  So reviewing a product that I had to use in the shower during my little getaways sounded awesome.

I was also excited about the new Dove Body Wash because it contains the highest concentration of NutriumMoisture technology across the Dove portfolio and in these summer months I want to avoid dry, cracked looking skin since so much of it will be exposed in this hot Louisiana weather!  We do a lot of swimming with our son Rex during the summer and the chlorine in the pool tends to dry out my skin.  After just a week of using the Dove Renewing Body wash my skin felt more nourished and replenished.  And after just a few more weeks I had visibly more beautiful skin!

What I liked best about the Dove Renewing Body wash was its scent.  It has a very clean, fresh scent that seemed to liven me up.  I am not fond of very floraly or strong fragranced body washes - I feel like they mask rather than clean.  This Body Wash was just the opposite.  I felt fresh and clean as soon as I squirted it onto my bath pouf!  The Dove Renewing Body wash truly is a great product that I highly recommend.  You can purchase it in a drug store or grocery and I know I can't wait to try out the rest of options in the Dove Visible Body Care line.
