We all know the very famous Dove, it has been in the market and in many people’s lives since a long time! Since 1993, to be precise! 🙂 The time when harsh chemicals of bathing soap were stripping the moisture of our faces away, this came to our rescue. Initially launched in the color white, which kind of depicts purity, it hasn’t changed at all! But wait! This time, it has changed, and for good!
When we think of the color pink, we start visualizing things like, cherry blossoms, pink roses, etc and we must agree that all those things are indeed beautiful. We do relate beauty with the color pink a lot of times! So if Dove had to change, it had to be pink! Yes, now Dove comes in a Pink avatar! Now instead of white, you will have a pop of color in your beauty regime! 🙂 I have been trying the new Dove since a few days and will be sharing my experience today.
About The Looks!
I will start with the main focus, i.e., the new Dove. The Dove beauty bar that used to be white in color is now Pink. The packaging that the bar comes in has also changed, though not a lot. The bar comes in a box which is majorly white in color with the bottom sides in pink. The front/top of the box has an image of pink Dove bar and mentioned as Dove pink/rosa beauty bathing bar. All the other information including ingredients, weight, etc, is printed at the bottom of the box and that too in Pink! I really like the design of the box and the way it’s sealed. Really sophisticated and classy! The pink bar looks beautiful!

My experience with the new Pink Dove!
The very first thing I noticed was the lovely scent even when the pack of 3 was not even open! The scent is really nice, some flowery scent, may be rose, I am not sure though. What I am sure of is that I really like the scent! Now coming to its performance as the beauty bathing bar. Since the brand claims that the soap has 1/4 of moisturizing cream in it, well they might be right.
Before, I take this forward, I would like to mention a very important fact I got to know from a renowned dermatologist. She said that any face wash or a soap which lathers or foams well, actually strips all the moisture away, that forces the skin oil glands to secrete more oil than normal which can lead to acne issues. The ones that do not foam much or may be not foam at all are the ones that do not make your skin dry and hence maintain the level of moisture required by the skin. I must say to find such a face wash or soap is not easy, as they are not very common, more importantly not affordable too.
This new Pink Dove bar, does not foam, with an exception of few bubbles. As much as I was happy to see that, I was equally skeptical about its cleansing abilities. Well, this non-foaming bar is very gentle on the skin and the scent makes the bathing experience wonderful! While washing the soap away I noticed that the bar does cleanses the skin well, and that too without being harsh on the skin. It keeps the skin well hydrated without leaving any residue on the skin behind. Now this is something I really like! A few moisturizing face wash or soaps leave a residue or a film behind which I don’t like. This Pink Dove, does not. The skin feel soft, smooth and well hydrated. I didn’t see any dry streaks or stretchy feeling on my body or face skin after using this. I just felt normal! That is such a great feeling!
I have a combination skin on my face that becomes very dry in winters and my body skin is extremely dry. I will now prefer washing my face with this new Pink Dove all the winters as it will prevent my face and body from being overly dry. Though it can be used all year round and actually it should be, but since winters are around the corner and the new Pink Dove is here to rescue my super dry skin! 🙂
It seems that Dove never disappoints, weather its white or pink! Addition of the color pink only increases its beauty and does no harm to the skin. With 1/4 of the moisturizer the beauty bar leaves your skin feeling well hydrated and nourished. This makes the skin get a natural glow from inside. In short I would say, a well hydrated skin from inside and outside is “the” beautiful skin! I highly recommend you all to try the new Pink Dove which gives you a beautiful skin without making a hole in your pocket!
