Dove may be a mainstream, high street brand, but look again at its collection of goodies – not only do they work a dream, especially on dry skin, but they are brilliant for bundling up to make a gorgeous beauty gift for someone special.
My pick of the bunch are these goodies. Firstly, is Dove’s DermaSpa Goodness Silky Body Oil, £9.99. This is ideal for nights out or special occasions (but not limited to these as Ive been using this daily!)
Stroke it on after your bath or shower, on slightly damp skin, and it leaves limbs glowing with a satin sheen. It sinks in immediately so you don’t feel oily at all and gives great moisturisation. Best of all, it has an amazing – slightly sweet – fragrance. Notes of vanilla, coconut and musk leave a lingering scent that is uplifting and is a joy to smell (it lasts all day). This is such a gorgeous find!
I’d recommend using it after my second choice of stocking filler, Dove’s Nourishing Care Shower Oil, £4.99. Yet again, this is another indulgent, luxe-y treat. It contains Moroccan argan oil, and banishes dry patches of skin, cleansing at the same time, with a light foaming action. A little goes a long way, too, so this lasts for ages.
From the same ‘Nourishing’ range is Dove’s Care & Oil Body Wash, £1.80, which also contains argan oil, but has a creamier texture. This is deeply hydrating and smooths skin after one shower. It is perfect for when you are in a rush as it is so pampering and there is no need to apply skin cream afterwards.
Finally, parcel up the DermaSkin Goodness Hand Cream, £4.99, for the complete skin transforming package. This turns around dry hands immediately – skin looks visibly better after one application and it leaves hands with a velvety texture.
