I’ve been a Dove fan for as long as I can remember. It’s their creamy, freshly scented formulas that helped me make the transition from soap to shower gel. Their products are, to put it properly, purely pampering and their campaigns, heart warming.
For a while, my favorite product has been the Dove Purely Pampering Body Lotion with coconut milk and jasmine petals, a combination so sweet and nourishing, that I had to tell you more about it. This body lotion is one of the three of the range, others being Shea Butter & Warm Vanilla and Almond Cream & Hibiscus scented. Luckily for those who prefer to match their body lotion to their shower gel, hand cream and their deodorant, you find these infused with coconut milk and jasmine petals as well.
If you’ve used Dove (and I can’t imagine you haven’t, really) then you know everything about the formula. Perfect beyond description, leaving your skin soft and smooth, without any greasy film on top.
This body lotion absorbs so fast, it’s unbelievable. Even more so than other lotions I’ve tried from the brand. It almost makes the skin feel a bit powdery after a few seconds, just in time to jump into my trousers and walk out the door. I think it will be my go-to product during the hot summer days.
Ingredients & benefits
Enriched with the NutriumMoisture technology and the DeepCare Complex, basically glycerin, rich essential oil, coconut extract, urea and collagen amino acids, the Purely Pampering body lotion is to moisturizing, you don’t even need to apply in on a daily basis. Although, the scent is so amazing you won’t be able to resist.
Another difference between Dove and other brands is in regards to texture. All of the lotions from this range are absorbed very quickly and are not sticky, runny or greasy. This is so convenient for me since I almost always end up slipping other products all over the floor when I apply lotion.
This lotion is so thick and the dispenser is so small, that you won’t cause any accidents however prone to such thing you may be. The bottles are ergonomically designed, with a curved ridge on the side for easy handling and a flip-top lid that comes off easily.
A small amount is needed to moisturize your skin and you don’t need to use it on a daily basis. Suffice to say, this baby will last you for a fair amount of time. My skin feels immediately softer after I apply the lotion and it maintains its suppleness throughout the day, so I tend to believe Dove’s claim that the lotion will leave your skin nourished for about 10 days. Frankly, I never waited that long, so I couldn’t say..
Coconut milk & Jasmine petals scent
The scent is the most impressive part of the Dove Purely Pampering Body lotion. Cleverly combined, the scents make a great combo, without been overpowering. The coconut scent is not quite as strong as you might imagine, which is fine by me since I tend to associate its perfume with sun oil anyway. Instead, the jasmine petals give it a soft, clean, floraly scent, that is so feminine and fresh.
Its comforting scent fills your shower to leave you in peaceful tranquility while nourishing and pampering your skin. It lingers on your skin softly throughout the day, relaxing you and making you feel caressed. I simply love it!
