With winter closing in it’s always nice to have something a bit more indulgent in the shower, and Dove have created an affordable everyday luxury in the form of their new look Crème Mousse body wash range. Unlike other body washes, which end up down the drain before you've had a chance to create a lather, the Crème Mousse creates a thick swirl in the palm of your hand. When massaged into the skin the Crème Mousse becomes a silky, luxurious lather that sticks around long enough to deeply nourish the skin. This also makes it an excellent non-drying alternative to shaving foams!
The Crème Mousse body washes use Dove’s highest concentration of 'NutriumMoisture' technology, a blend of moisturisers, to address protein and lipid damage caused by regular shower gels. These hydrating ingredients are absorbed into the top layer of skin, rather than simply coating the outermost layer, making it ideal to help soothe and prevent dry, distressed winter skin. The Crème Mousse was hydrating enough on my normal skin type for me to happily skip body lotion, so it’s also an ideal choice if you’re in a rush in the morning! Wonderfully, despite the rich, hydrating ingredients, Crème Mousse efficiently cleans the skin without leaving a greasy film.
Both varieties have that classic, clean and, I find, comforting 'Dove' scent. Dove Crème Mousse body wash comes in Brightening and Nourishing varieties, which both retail for £3.71 for 200ml, and are available now from supermarkets and chemists.
