Frugal Friday – Dove Cream Oil Shea Butter Body Wash Giveaway!


Even though the spring makeup collections are out on counters and spring fashions are arriving in stores, it IS winter–mid-February to be exact. In many parts of the country, spring is still a few long months away– it snowed where I live today! Consequently, our skin needs extra nourishment and moisture. Dove® Cream Oil Shea Butter Body Wash has us covered–literally.

NEW Dove® Cream Oil Shea Butter Body Wash with NutriumMoisture™ is specially designed to leave dry, dull skin feeling smooth and radiant. This body wash is a whipped blend of rich cream infused with shea butter which melts into dry, dull skin to leave it soft, smooth and radiant. The shea butter offers a deliciously enticing fragrance – blend of warm vanilla and brown sugar scents.”

Dove® and I go way back, and I mean waaaaaaaaaaay back. I can remember spending the night with my cousins and my Aunt giving me a bath–she always used Dove® soap. Let me tell you, those bars of soap made excellent play irons and a washcloth an equally marvelous play ironing board.  With the washcloth slung over the side of the bathtub and the soap being constantly rubbed back and forth to “iron,” my Aunt probably wondered why her soap didn’t last very long–hopefully she never made the connection between my visits and her bars of Dove® soap disappearing.

Now that's a HUGE bottle!

Anywho, I’ve been partial to Dove® products since those early days and virtually anything with the word ‘shea butter’ gets me excited,  so I couldn’t wait to try Dove® Cream Oil Shea Butter Body Wash.  It’s richer than the body washes I’m accustomed to, and I find that somewhat comforting; it makes me feel like I’m treating myself to a little extra luxury. It has a thick, creamy, whipped texture that really does melt into your skin. The scent is very nice and not overpowering or foody smelling. Bath and Body Works also has a Warm Vanilla and Sugar scent that I find too cloying. I know some people like foody scents, but personally I don’t want to smell like a cookie or muffin. I have no self control when it comes to food and I would probably be licking myself all day–no one wants to see that.  

My skin seems to like this body wash –I think I’ve tricked it into feeling as if I’m actually taking care of it. My skin feeels soft and moisturized for hours after using Dove® Cream Oil Shea Butter Body Wash–it’s kinda like a body wash and lotion all in one. That is a big plus for me because I don’t have time in the morning to put on body lotion–I get up at 5:30 AM and I am most assuredly NOT a morning person.

Good news! I’m happy to report that Dove® has not quashed the warm and fuzzy feelings I had for the brand at the age of 5 🙂

Available at retailers nationwide for $8.99 for 24 ounces–the bottle is huge!

    Well, I’m currently rotating between three body washes to mix things up a bit: one day I’ll use Aveeno’s Lavender and Yling-yling Calming Body Wash to hydrate my skin; next day I’ll switch to Zest’s Ocean Breeze to get everything squeaky clean; and last but not least, I’ll use Bath and Body Works’ Butterfly Flower Shower Gel if I want to smell sweet and feminine.

    I certainly share your fond memories of Dove. It was a family staple.

    I have strayed a bit and now rotate between Perlier Honey and my latest flashback find: “It’s Raining Men” from Lush. With that title, I just had to have it.
