Hi Friends,

I saw this lotion at a local supermarket. Since I am a fan of Dove body butters body wash and as also my skin is somewhat dry in winters, I wanted to give this a try. So, Here’s my review.

About the product:

It’s true what they say – beauty starts from the inside. That is exactly why Dove essential Nourishment Body Lotion has been especially formulated to work deep down. This body lotion not only moisturizes the surface of your skin, it also delivers deep nourishment for long lasting beautifully soft and smooth skin.

In their website they have given the functions of each of the ingredients added. Its really cool. This is the link

Cost: INR 180/- for 250ml.

Best Before: 24 months.

My Experience:

I have been using this lotion for about 15 days now. As I said, I have a skin that gets drier in winters and that, combined with the salty water in our area just makes body lotions indispensible for me. I have been using the Vaseline lotion with cocoa for sometime which was good,but then my dry skin craved for some more moisture.

This lotion has a creamy consistency and gets easily spread. It smells like the plain dove soap. One tiny glob is sufficient for covering my arm. Moisturizing effect is very good (no one believes in 24 hour claim. Do we? ) The only drawback I had with this is the sticky feeling this lotion gives me when applied initially. This feeling goes off once the cream gets absorbed into the skin. The cream takes a little bit more time to get absorbed as its very thick. When I applied it for the first time I applied it in huge quantities and I ended up having the sticky feeling till afternoon.

Now summing up its pros and cons:


  • Convenient bottle shape. It’s easy to hold.
  • Imparts Softness as it claims.
  • Smells of dove soap and I like it.
  • Easily spreadable creamy texture.
  • Small quantity is sufficient.
  • Moisturizing effect stays for almost 6 hours in air-conditioned environment. (I don’t sweat a lot)
  • Helps dry skin.


  • Takes time to get absorbed.
  • Makes me feel sticky and oily if used in large quantities.
  • Contains parabens, alcohol and whole lot of chemicals.


Will I re-purchase?

Yes. But only during winters. For summers its bit too heavy.

Will I recommend?

Yes for dry skin.
