When it comes to body wash I like to try different brands to see which works best for my skin. Since I have dry skin that reacts sensitively to certain chemicals it’s important for me to find a brand of body wash that is effective and easy on my skin. I recently had the pleasure of trying two brands of body wash and both have proven to be quite effective for me. Dove Body Wash Deep Moisture and Herbal Essences Botanical Moisturizing Body Wash are definitely worth taking a look at when it comes to your showering and skin care needs. Following is a product comparison on the two brands, as well as the brand that I prefer to continue using in the future.
Dove Body Wash Deep Moisture is a great product when it comes to moisturizing your skin. I have skin that dries out and irritates pretty easily, so this product was a welcome relief from the dry skin that I usually have to endure. I found that after using this product just once, my skin was softer and felt more hydrated and healthy. It also seemed to glow after using it simply because of how healthy it looked. Another thing I really like about this product is that you can get it for both normal skin and for sensitive skin. There really weren’t any drawbacks to using Dove Body Wash Deep Moisture, as it does exactly what it promises to do on the bottle: cleans and moisturizes your skin, giving it a healthy look and soft feel. At $7.64 for a 24oz bottle, it’s a little on the pricey side, but from my experience it’s worth every penny. A 24oz bottle should last at least a week, if not longer, which actually helps me save money in the end because I don’t have to buy body wash as frequently as I would with a smaller, but cheaper, bottle. Overall, I give Dove Body Wash Deep Moisture a score of 4 ½ out of 5.
Herbal Essences Botanical Moisturizing Body Wash works the same way Dove does; it provides you with clean, healthy looking skin by moisturizing with every use. This product was specifically for dry skin and it did a great job moisturizing and making my skin soft. Like Dove, I found that there really were no drawbacks to using this product, other than the fact that it was a little pricey at $7.29 for a 24oz bottle. But, like Dove, it was worth the money. Another small drawback I had with this product was that my skin didn’t seem to stay as soft and hydrated as it did after using the Dove product. It felt like it lost its effect after a few hours, whereas the Dove product felt like it lasted all day. A few hours after showering I found my skin to be dry again, which was a little disappointing. Even though my skin felt great immediately after using it, I also look for a product that has a long lasting effect and Herbal Essences didn’t provide that quality for me. All in all, I give Herbal Essences Botanical Moisturizing Body Wash a score of 4 out of 5.
In the end, I found this to be a tough choice for me because both products were really great and effective to use. I will definitely use both of them again in the future, but my first choice will probably be the Dove Body Wash Deep Moisture. Even though it has a slightly higher price tag than the Herbal Essences product, the longer lasting effects of Dove Body Wash Deep Moisture are what ultimately sold me to it in the end.
