I’ve written several times on this blog about how much I love summers in Maine. And I do love them. As everyone else seems to be enduring 100+ degree weather, we are complaining about low 80s. (We like to complain about all of our weather here.)
I have to admit, my one complaint about summertime here in Maine is that I have to shave my legs every day. I am Italian, after all.
The shaving isn’t all that bad. What’s really annoying is the fact that my skin is so darn sensitive. So, I end up with dry and irritated skin all summer long. It sucks. And it doesn’t matter how much I try to slather lotion on me or use sensitive skin washes and shaving gel. My legs end up red and bumpy.
That is, until I discovered Dove’s new VisibleCare Renewing body wash.
When Dove sent me their new body wash, I was skeptical. It says right on the bottle that I would notice “visible skin improvement in just one week.”
Always down for a challenge, I took a photo of my legs and then started using the body wash on a daily basis. I have to say that I really loved the smell of the body wash – clean and fresh. Just a nice smell that wasn’t too flowery but made me feel just a little pampered. After I used it the first time, my skin actually felt really refreshed and moisturized. I mean, I could really tell that my legs, in particular, were adequately moisturized. A weird sensation for me to say the least.
After a few days, I really started to enjoy using the body wash. My skin felt great, and I loved the fresh scent. By the end of the week, I decided that I was hooked on the body wash. However, I was still skeptical that I would see much of a difference in my legs.
But, here’s what I found.
The top photo is the before picture, and the bottom is the after. Now, I know the photos aren’t from the same distance away (I wasn’t really paying attention to that), but you can definitely tell the difference since using the body wash. My skin not only feels smoother, it looks smoother! And that makes a big difference to me.
It turns out that Dove’s new line of premium body wash contains the highest concentration of NutriumMoisture technology. I’m not exactly sure what that means, but I do know what it does.
Let’s face it, when you look good, you feel good. And I’m liking the way my legs are looking after using Dove’s VisibleCare body wash.
