Baby Dove Bar Review

Product Detail: Baby Dove Rich Moisture Baby Bar


If I would have to say one complement that has always made me smile then it would be about my skin. A lot of people have complemented me saying that my skin is very nice. It feels good. I mean, considering the fact that I am not the kind who gets regular facials or pays a whole lot of attention to my skin, this complement comes as a surprise and if I owe this complement to someone then it would be my mother and Dove. I have been using Dove since years and when I came to know that Dove is introducing Baby Dove Rich Moisture Baby Bar I knew I have to try it out.


It is a welcome change in baby care products. It is soft and mild to the baby’s skin and definitely brings with it the promise it has kept for years. It is by far the best moisturising bar. My baby does not let me use moisturiser on her face and after the first wash with Baby Dove Bar, she did not even needed it. Her cheeks were the softest ever.


Baby Dove Rich Moisture Baby Bar has a hypoallergenic and pH neutral formula that’s ophthalmologist, dermatologist and pediatrician tested too. The Baby Bar replenishes baby’s skin with essential nutrients lost during bathing.


With every other bar, my daughter’s skin was losing its natural moisture and no matter how much moisturiser I used her cheeks looked dry. With a pH neutral formula and enriched with ¼ moisturising cream, the baby bar keeps my baby’s skin feeling extra soft. It is hypoallergenic and all at a mere Rs27 for a 50gm bar. Isn’t that amazing.


On baby’s skin

My daughter’s skin is nourished and moisturised well just after the first wash. She keeps running after having a bath and it is difficult for me to put on moisturiser sometimes and Baby Dove kind of fulfils that needs as it provides enough moisture to my baby’s skin. Her skin feels softer than earlier and it is not cosmetic, it is just her natural body moisture that Baby Dove Bar is helping her skin to retain. I am happy that my baby can have a soft, gentle and damage free bath considering how much she loves her bath time.


On Features:

So my little one is something more than naughty after all she is just two and a half year old. So you know, when she eats something, it’s all over her, when she plays in the garden, it is not possible that she would not roll in the grass and fall and run and fall down again. With Dove Baby Bar, I was happy that it is effective in cleaning, forms enough foam and at the same time is really moisturising and nourishing. The fragrance is delicate, neither too strong nor too dull. It was funny to see my princess smell it again and again and say, ‘Achi hai na!’ Plus it is mild on skin and did not cause any kind of irritation to the eyes or skin. Psst… I tried it too on my face and it is so soft and gentle.


On Packaging and Design:

The 50gm bar is easy to hold and use. My daughter says, ‘I will bathe myself’ for she thinks she is a grown up like like Mummy and thankfully the Baby Dove bar does not just slips from her hands and she can actually use it herself. It is packaged in a nice box like all Dove bars and obviously brings with it the quality product it has always been.



Body Shop Vitamin E Day Lotion SPF 30

As winters approach, my biggest fears comes back to me and that is flaky skin. My skin gets so dry that even the softest scratch itches so bad, not to mention that my hands and feet start looking totally malnourished. I have to keep on applying moisturizer after every two hours at least. I have tried almost every good brand available but nothing lasts longer than 2-3 hours. Then one of my friends suggested Body Shop Vitamin E Day Lotion SPF 30. Since, I have been using a few of the products by Body Shop I thought I should give it a try.

I am a little old school, so I always thought that the thicker the moisturizing lotion, the better it is for the skin and when I opened the Body Shop Vitamin E Day Lotion SPF 30, it wasn’t how I was expecting it to be. It was lightweight and milky and I thought, ‘Okay, it might have worked on normal skin types but I don’t think it’s gonna work on mine.’ My skin is super dry during winters and I wasn’t sure if the lotion could have worked on me but I was proven wrong.

It was lightweight and milky but it worked wonders for my skin, plus I did not have to use too much of it or too often. Not only my skin looked hydrated, it remained the same for an entire day which was a pleasant surprise for me. Earlier I was working with a publication house, a proper corporate job, I had my own office and I could use moisturizer anytime I wanted just so that my skin stayed hydrated but since I have recently joined a school to follow my passion for teaching, it is not possible to use moisturizer in the middle of the day and trust me with Body Shop Vitamin E Day Lotion SPF 30,  there wasn’t even any need to use it again.

So, my daily routine is, drop baby at day care at 8:15 a.m reach school by 8:20a.m., finish by 3:15 p.m. it’s a ten fifteen minutes walk from my school to my daughter’s day care, so around 3:15p.m. I leave for her day care, I pick her up and then another ten minutes walk to home. I don’t drive because I try to include walking in my everyday life as much as possible. You must be wondering how come this us related to my review. Well, let me tell you, it is. Since it is SPF 30, it not only keeps my skin hydrated it also protects my skin against UVA and UVB damage. Almost 30 minutes of walk in the afternoon and no tanning at all. How good is that!

Body Shop Vitamin E Day Lotion SPF 30 is mild, lightweight and gentle on skin. It is working well in keeping my skin hydrated and moisturized, it has no side effects on my skin and protects my skin against UVA and UVB. I am quite satisfied with this product as it is extremely good in what it is supposed to do.


On my skin

It is good enough to keep my skin hydrated skin for 48 hours. My otherwise flaky skin looks smoother and has this beautiful lusturous look. Especially my feet that looked too rough, they look beautiful and clean and shiny. Since it is lightweight, it doesn’t make my skin too sticky as compared to other moisturizers that I use.


On Features:

  • When it comes to moisturising this is by far the best product I have tried. It is smooth, and has a nice texture and smells pleasant.


This is one product that should be there in every woman’s handbag. A little application and we are good to go out and face the sun or the cold waves.
