For the last week or so, the unmistakable smell of Dove soap has been lingering in the air around our beauty closet. That’s because the company sent over a crapload of products. TWICE! It’s not because they think we need to bathe more (although I did confess that I was a bit lax about showering during my freelancing days), but to remind us that dermatologists love the stuff because it’s very kind and gentle to the skin.
Derms also like to preach about the evils of hot showers, but I just cover up my ears and go “La la la la la la!” whenever they start dishing out that advice. I don’t care if it’s sucking all the moisture out of my skin, I LOVE me a long, hot shower, especially after a stressful and/or hectic day. It’s so relaxing. Who’s with me on that?
Anyway, I wasn’t surprised to hear that derms recommend Dove to their patients all the time because I’ve interviewed a lot of skin experts in my day and have heard them say as much. And I can personally verify the gentleness of Dove. I’m more of a shower gel aficionado, but my bar of choice is the classic white beauty bar. The smell, the shape -- it’s just so iconic.
When the Dove mailing arrived at the office, Rebecca called dibs on the body washes because apparently her husband is a big fan. And Olivia and I each snagged a few (OK, a bunch) of the soaps. However, we are not selfish people. That is not who we are and therefore we want to SHARE THE WEALTH and offer you, our beloved readers, a chance to luxuriate in Dove, too. Here’s what we’re giving away to one lucky reader (maybe you!):
