Two Weeks to Nourished Skin Dove Difference Challenge and Giveaway

Photobucket

I never knew how bad some body washes and soaps can be for your skin. All regular body washes cause or contribute to dry skin damage. Current body washes actually damage proteins and lipids in the skin’s outer layer which can lead to the loss of moisture. When skin lacks proper moisture, dryness, tightness and irritation/redness can occur. Some existing body wash are focused on minimizing protein damage and alleviating visual symptoms of moisture loss by adding heavy moisturizing ingredients that sit on top of skin. While these additives help mask dry skin damage, they do not address the deeper problem of lipid damage. 

The new Dove Body Wash collection contains NutriumMoisture™ technology that cares for surface skin ten layers deep. Unlike other body washes, this first-of-its-kind body wash technology takes a dual approach to healthy, nourished skin by preserving both proteins and lipids during cleansing. Only Dove contains NutriumMoisture™, a breakthrough formula of soybean oil and natural lipids.

I recently was contacted by Dove to review their new line of body washes with NutriumMoisture. I received a bottle of Go Fresh Energize body wash in grapefruit and lemongrass scent.  I love the scent of this body wash! It is so refreshing and clean smelling. My skin is always so dry and flaky but after using the Dove NutriumMoisture products my skin feels soft and revived!

Buy It: Dove NutriumMoisture body washes are available at your local drug stores, chain retailer, and grocery stores for around $5 a bottle. I encourage you to take the 2 week Dove challenge and see which NutriumMoisture body wash is your favorite.

Win It:  Win a Dove Difference Challenge kit for yourself! Leave me a  comment telling which of the Dove NutriumMoisture body washes you would like to start your challenge with!
