Dove VisibleCare Softening Creme Body Wash - Do The Commercials Lie? Road Test!

 Dove's new body wash.  VisibleCare Softening Creme Body Wash

Have you seen these ads on TV?  They take before and after photos of women's skin after a week of use and then show them their "close-ups" on a wall.  The images are magnified close-ups of their skin.  The before looking dehydrated and rough.  The after looking plush and supple.

I know what you're thinking.... yeah right.  So I'm going to road test Dove's VisibleCare Softening Creme Body Wash for myself.  I don't have a way of taking a magnified photo of my skin, so you'll just have to take my word for it.  I'll check back in with you in a week's time, and let you kno how it goes.

 My old favorite was actually also by Dove.  
I liked Dove's Ultra Rich Velvet Cream Oil Body Wash.  
 Visibly more beautiful within 3 weeks?  Let's take that challenge.
 Patents pending....

Dove, I'm In Love With You - Nourishing Oil Care Daily Treatment Conditioner

 Show me some Dove!

I used to go to great lengths to deal with my long hair.  Pricey products, tedious treatments (e.g. hair mask that say leave in for 20 minutes... who has that kind of time?!).  Can't a girl with long locks have it all?

I found Dove's Nutritive Therapy Nourishing Oil Care Daily Treatment Conditioner at my local drugstore and was intrigued by the picture on the bottle.  The illustration showed conditioner + treatment in one bottle.  Hmmm interesting.

Do you think Dairy Queen would hire me? 

Inside, the conditioner was infused with treatment in one rich swirl!  Now even more interesting.  But, I had to try it on my hair.  I have long straight hair, and without proper conditioning, the ends can get ratty, frizzy and frayed, but with too much conditioning, my hair can look oily and flat.

I have been using this for a week now, and Dove's Nutritive Therapy Nourishing Oil Care Daily Treatment Conditioner definitely beats my old conditioner.  The moisture really saturates my hair in the shower, and then out and after drying, my hair seems smoother and softer in comparison with my old brand (hint: it comes in a green bottle and starts with G).  What I also like about this is that it's not so heavy that I can't use it everyday.  I love hydrating hair masks, but daily use can cause buildup and make hair greasy, heavy and flat.  This conditioner leaves my hair soft but doesn't weigh it down too much.  This will definitely be a repeat purchase.  I may also check out the shampoo.

Dove Nutritive Therapy Nourishing Oil Care Daily Treatment Conditioner is about $6 for 8.0oz at drugstores and supermarkets nationwide.
