People often forget how important it is to use a body moisturizer round the year for a healthy and youthful skin. Thankfully I am not one of them. To me, applying an appropriate body moisturizer every day is like brushing my teeth. I always choose my body lotion according to my skin’s moisture requirement at any particular season. In the hot and humid months of the year, I tend to shift towards less dense and non-oily body lotions that have freshening or energizing fragrance. Today I am going to review one of my favorite summer body lotions; it is none other than ‘Dove Go Fresh Nourishment Body Lotion’ for Normal skin. Though it is not tagged as a ‘summer’ product, I call it my ‘summer savior’. To know why? Read on!
Dove Says: Dove Go Fresh Nourishment Body Lotion is a menthol enriched and Cucumber-Green Tea scented skin nourishing and revitalizing body lotion that gives you skin tingling and just-got-out-of-shower feeling. It has a fast absorbing formula with Dove’s unique DeepCare complex.
Price: Rs.270 for 250ml (BUY HERE)
My Experience with Dove Go Fresh Nourishment Body Lotion:
Packaging: This body lotion comes in a white colored opaque plastic bottle with flip-open cap. In the front side of the bottle, there is a vibrant green label graphics along with the product name and other specifications. The ingredient list, claims and manufacturing details are mentioned on the back side. The bottle is very sturdy and its product dispensing system is quite appropriate. I have not experienced any leakage or product wastage while using it. This lotion is available in three sizes; 100ml, 250ml, and 400ml. I have bought the medium size because I use it when I am at home. If you want your lotion to be more compact, you have to go for the 100ml version. Overall I find the packaging to be quite simple yet useful.
Colour & Texture: The lotion is faint green in color but it looks almost white when taken out in a small amount. Its consistency is on the lighter side but not runny. It gets absorbed into the skin very quickly. I do not need to rub too much. Being of medium to fluid consistency, this lotion is very easy to spread over the skin.
Fragrance: This Dove product has a light freshening scent to it. I could identify the notes of Green Tea and Cucumber in the fragrance. The smell is very light and its top note vanishes off after a few minutes but the hint of soothing bottom note stays there for 3-4 hours.
Effectiveness: I apply this body lotion at night after a brief shower. It takes a two coin size product to cover my body. So, I can certainly say, less is more with this product. It has been a while since my last bottle of this lotion got over. I was trying out some other skin nourishers in the mean time but no other lotion could compete with this one. Finally, I am back with another bottle of Go Fresh. I do not know why I am that much obsessed with this product. Perhaps it is the light and non-greasy after-effect, the slight cooling sensation or the fresh fragrance. I am an owner of very acne prone skin.
I have an extreme sweating problem too. This lotion neither makes me sweat more nor causes body acne problem. I find Dove Go Fresh Nourishment Body Lotion to be a really effective body lotion with remarkable performance.
