Soap Strips Your Skin. Dove® Is Different.

The following is a post from our sponsor, Dove®.

Think the dry, tight and sometimes irritating feeling experienced after washing with soap is leaving your skin “clean?” Think again!  This “clean” feeling can actually be the result of harsh cleansers that are stripping your skin of its essential nutrients.

The good news? Dove® does not strip your skin like soap. Dove® Beauty Bars are proven to be more gentle and mild than soap and contain a blend of cleansers and moisturizers that replenish skin while cleansing, leaving it soft and smooth.

Don’t believe us quite yet?  Here are just a few ways Dove® is different:

Soap strips skin of essential nutrients. Dove® replenishes nutrients lost during cleansing.

Soap contains drying ingredients that strip skin of its natural moisture.  Dove® is different becase it contains ¼ pure moisturizng cream.

Soap leaves skin rough, itchy and tight.  Dove® leaves skin soft and smooth.

Soap results in loss of critical moisture to skin and can lead to decreased skin elasticity. Over time, Dove® improves surface texture of skin**.

Soap uses harsh cleansers created via a chemical process to clean skin. Dove® uses a mild cleanser  for healthy-looking, beautiful skin.

Dove® Beauty Bar is available in: White, Pink, Gentle Exfoliating, Sensitive Skin Unscented, Purely Pampering Shea Butter, go fresh®Cool Moisture, go fresh® Revive, and two NEW scents: go fresh® Restore and go fresh® Rebalance.

We always use the unscented Dove because my kids have skin problems and allergies and it works great for them!

I think that when I get older that I will try Dove. Right now I'm having an oily problem, but I'm sure I will have a dry problem soon enough.

Great to know! I don't like bar soaps, only body wash.

I have used Dove in the past, and forgot how true this is. And not nearly as expensive as the cleanser I'm using now. Need to go back and give it another try!
