Today I am so excited to share something that hits close to home, a new product that is key for great skin and literally changed my skin for the better. Today I’ve partnered with Dove to tell you all about their New Dove Dry Oil Collection featuring their Dove Dry Oil Beauty Bar and Dove Dry Oil Moisture Body Wash. However, before I dive into that let me tell you a little back story and why I am so passionate about Dove products!
I remember waking up mid high school on a school morning in a panic. I had huge red patches of dry skin all over my arms, my legs and my neck–it was AWFUL. I had eczema my entire life, literally since I was a baby, but I don’t ever remember it being this bad. Now, think back to when you were in high school, these were crucial times and something like this was traumatizing. I mean let’s be real something like this happening now would be traumatizing. I was in tears, I put as much lotion as possible on and nothing was helping. It was mid May and I wore jeans and a long sleeve shirt with a scarf–I looked absolutely ridiculous and I’m not kidding at all. I was totally mortified.
We met with the dermatologist the next week, by then I had loaded it up with a million different lotions and made the majority of it worse and more inflamed. She prescribed a cream and we were on our way. Well, two weeks later and it was a little bit better, but not gone–so we tried something different, then something different again and again and again. You get the pattern, nothing was working. I was about to just give up. It looked better, better than the first day anyways, but it was still there and I was still too embarrassed to wear shorts (my legs were the worst part of it). I kept using the prescribed ointment on my legs and began just using Dove everywhere else.
Well within a matter of days, my arms and neck were totally clear, but my legs–still a sad red, flakey dryness everywhere. So I thought to myself, WAIT, WAIT JUST A MINUTE…I think the Dove cleared up my arms and neck! I mean, at this point I didn’t really have anything to lose, so I tried it. I lathered it up on my legs and did so every single day for the next week. Guess what? A week later and I kid you not, my legs were perfect, not one tiny spot of eczema or dry skin. They were shiny, smooth and best of all I felt confident again!
Now that you’ve heard my story, you now know why when Dove asked me to partner with them my answer was absolutely yes! So now, let me dive into their new product and tell you why it’s even better than I expected! For all my dry skin, eczema, you name it skin problems friends, you know what I am talking about when I say I am SO hesitant to use a cleanser. I know that sounds weird and a little gross, but here’s why. Cleansers generally dry my skin out like crazy and obviously as we discussed before, I already have REALLY dry skin–so why would I dive in and use a cleanser often and make that worse? I was a little hesitant to try these products, but now that I have I am SO glad that I did. Talk about game changing!
The first time I used it, I got out of the shower, dried off and my skin didn’t feel dry AT ALL!! You know how when you usually dry off after showering and your skin (at least your face) feels like it’s tight and cracking because you just essentially sucked all the moisture out of it? Yeah, Dove New Dry Oil Moisture Body Wash did the opposite! MY SKIN FELT GREAT and all while cleaning it!! The new Dove Dry Oil collection literally helps nourish and protect skin from dryness in the shower by effectively cleansing without leaving skin feeling dry! Now I know you’re asking, how? How does that even work? Well, here’s the scoop; it features a nourishing formula infused with Moroccan Argan oil beads to gently cleanse while helping to replenish nutrients to the skin and it does it right. I use this every single time I shower now..which well as you Moms know is a rarity 😉 Ha! But I have not once regretted using it and my skin is still clear, healthy and smooth! I mean seriously, softer, smoother skin is something every woman desires! However, did you know that 1 in 3 women suffer from dry skin? And 98% of women feel more confident when their skin is moisturized vs. dry? I mean–how would you NOT feel more confident?! Exactly.
It’s the perfect, easy quick solution to beautiful skin. Let’s face it we don’t all have time to devote to expensive creams and washes, but that’s fine now because New Dove Dry Oil Collection handles that for you! I even use it for sweet Blake’s baths sometimes and it’s the best!
SO moral of the story, get your cute self into the store and grab this collection–you WON’T regret it.
