Soft and Smooth Skin…

best-body-washes dove-moisture-body-wash dove-body-wash-review dove-deep-moisture-body-wash best-body-washes-doveWith a fresh new year about to begin I’ve made a resolution to pay closer attention to my skin care routine, especially because I’m pregnant! It’s SOOOO important for my skin to stay hydrated and moisturized throughout my pregnancy in order to avoid the dreaded stretch marks so I’ve been making sure to use products that give my skin plenty of nourishment!

When Dove asked if I would partner with them to review and share one of their skin care products on my blog, it felt like the perfect fit because it’s a product that I’ve used for years (and I actually already had three bottles on hand ;). My beauty routine begins in the shower and my favorite product to use on my body is the Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash (if you have sensitive skin try the Dove Sensitive Skin Body Wash). I grew up using Dove products but their body wash in-particular has been a continuous favorite of mine. One of the reasons I love using it so much is because it always leaves my skin feeling softer and smoother after just one shower (It also doubles as my shaving cream when I shave, trust me your legs will feel AMAZING afterwards).

How do you keep your skin looking and feeling beautiful?

  2. I love Dove products and use them every day. They really are the best!

  14. Lauren says:

    I never really used Dove, but then again, most shower moisturizers aren’t that good. So I think I’ll give this a try. Didn’t even know you could use it as shaving cream. Must try this some time!

  15. A great brand with a good ethic about women and bodies. Also some of their products, like these are really great especially during winter just wrecking havoc with your skin.

  17. Summer Ann says:

    I love the body wash too but my favorite thing of theirs right now is the dry shampoo. It is a total must have for any new mom.

    I love Dove products, they are always, consistently good. I love a thick creamy luxurious texture of their shower creams. I remember their first campaign featuring women of normal sizes and how everyone talked about it.

  19. I’ve used this everyday for many many years as well. Its my fav!

    dreaded stretch marks? they’re a sign you carried and nurtured a healthy, safe baby. wear them with pride! they’re not something to be ashamed of and scorn.

    i agree… i have used dove for years. body wash, soap and lotion are the best.


  32. Emily says:

    I love these products. I use them everyday

  33. Victoria says:

    I guess you wrote the post before 2015? ;) I’m a lover of Dove products too. I use the bar soap in sensitive skin. When compared with the liquid body wash version, there are a lot less chemicals. I try to avoid anything with artificial coloring which some of their products have but fortunately the sensitive does not and no artificial fragrances either. I have used their body wash in the past and because it’s so creamy, I too used it for shaving. To be honest though, their bar soap does the job too so I just stick with that.

  34. Carly says:

    I love how affordable Dove products are

  35. Jamie says:

    The sensitive skin body wash is a lifesaver! My skin is so sensitive that most scented soaps irritate it, but their products are great! I’ll have to try to deep moisture one too!


  36. Amanda Gomez says:

    I love your blog and sense of style! You are such an inspiration to young women I was wondering if you could post about any tips to young women wishing to flourish in the fashion industry?

  37. kelsey says:

    i adore dove! helps my sensitive skin. :)

  38. Savanna says:

    I use dove extra sensitive and boy does it work wonders! My skin gets so irritated usually but not with this product. Love it and that you are partnering up with dove.

In September of 2011 I created Pink Peonies as a place to document the things I loved. Since then, it has become a creative outlet where I share my personal style though daily outfits, beauty tips, home style and much more!

Ever since I was a little girl I've dreamed of creating my own line. After countless hours of working towards that dream, I've finally launched my first collection!

It's full of classic, feminine and romantic pieces that you'll keep in your closet for years to come and wear over and over again!
