(Advertorial) Dove recently approached me and asked me to try out their Dove Sensitive Skin Body Wash (link). It caught my interest because it’s apparently suitable for young children too.
Most body washes contain cleansing ingredients that attach to the dirt on your skin and get washed away. However these ingredients can also strip the skin of its nutrients during cleansing, causing sensitivity and redness for some people.
Mild on Skin but Rich in Nutrients!
Dove’s mild formulation does not strip your skin like other body washes. Hypoallergenic, soap free and clinically tested, it helps skin retain nutrients and goes beyond cleansing and moisturising to preserve a healthy skin barrier.
Giving It A Try
I don’t often remember which body wash I use. I just usually buy whatever that’s on offer or convenient. Little did I know how harsh some body soaps could be on my skin. Especially for someone like me who loves taking quick showers – up to 4 times a day if I’m at home all day. Don’t judge me, it’s Singapore’s crazy hot weather’s fault. I don’t think I have found a body wash that completely cleanses away dirt and yet is both mild and gentle on my skin. On days when I shower more than 2 times, the skin around my shin, feet and arms are gets so dry that I can doodle on my skin using my fingernail.
It’s Luxurious, Creamy and Pampering
I’ve been trying the Dove Sensitive Skin Body Wash for a few days now and I really like how it feels on my skin. I hardly use cream-based body washes so this was a great change.
After a shower, my skin feels really smooth and soft. Thumbs up for moisturizing effect! It lathers well and glides on smoothly. It smells good, very luxurious and feminine.

Dove Sensitive Skin Body Wash For Kids
I usually would purchase a body wash specifically formulated for young children for Daniel as these are typically much gentler and milder on the skin compared to the body washes that we adults use.
After trying out this body wash on myself and finding it suitable for my 2.5-year-old toddler, I decided to let him try the Dove Sensitive Skin Body Wash and see if it is gentle enough for his skin as well. His skin turned out smooth and didn’t have any reactions to it. If it’s okay on a toddler’s skin, I’m sure it’s okay for our skin too, especially sensitive skin! 🙂
