I cant remember how young I was when I first saw Dove's ad that said their soaps had 1/4th moisturizer in it. But I remember, soon after that I convinced my mom and dad that if there was a soap my sister and I were going to use - it was Dove.

What was your first beauty purchase as a kid ? How much parental convincing did it take ?

Here are some stories from our Twitter brigade

That should establish the fact that I love Dove bar soaps. My next favorite would be Olay Oatmeal which is becoming extremely hard to find. You know what they say...out of sight, out of mind.

Dove recently introduced a Body Wash collection that contains the NutriumMoisture™ technology. This new technology can penetrate up to ten layers of skin ( I didn't know we had so many ! Dermis & epidermis is all I remember from school). Most body washes either strip out deeper layers of moisture make us feel dry or just sit on top of our skin making us feel good on the outside while the lipids and proteins on the inside, starve from lack of moisture. The New Dove Body washes promise to preserve our natural proteins and lipids by proving them adequate moisture.

Ooh I love all things scientific !

The Body washes are available in Deep Moisture, Sensitive Skin and Gentle Exfoliating formulas. I tried them all and had two clear favorites - deep moisture (DM) and sensitive skin (SS). DM, a little more than SS. Now I really cannot strip down to ten layers below and find out if they were moisturized but I can tell ya, I haven't needed a body lotion since I began with these. Both SS and DM create mad lather which the suds queen loves. They are thicker than most body washes, almost like a body lotion. But when you get out , there is no slimy greasy feeling that comes from most super moisturizing formulas. This is especially important to me, given the hot humid weather .

The exfoliating body wash was my least favorite. It is moisturizing but not really exfoliating. They call it a gentle exfoliator but I like something a lot more scrub-by. Something that will take the dirt away after a hard day at the ranch.

That's right I said ranch.

Aah, who am I kiddin

I ain't no cow girl. But I like a good body scrub. In this one, I could hardly feel the beads. May be its good for sensitive skin ? Or for gently exfoliating right before shaving ?

Price - $9
Purchase - CVS, Walgreens, Target, Walmart
Purpose - Moisturizing Body Wash

Have you tried these New Dove Body Washes ?

Hi Josie !

I know Dove has been here for ever ( 50 yrs apparently)
And yup I've tried Pears !! I was tweeeting this morning about how my math teacher who was super gorgeous always smelt of Pears. We all wanted to be her favorite ! Yea it is SO hard to find Pears but you know what, sometime I see it at the 99 cent store.

Hi Varuna !!

Wasnt it fun having to convince parents for things. I kinda miss it :( And my Mom made us use Shikakai for ever and just a drop of shampoo. I literally used to believe I'd lose all my hair if I used any more of the shampoo :p
