Beauty Review: Dial Nutriskin Body Wash

Boy, I tell ya…Dial is certainly steppin’ their games up in the body wash department. For quite some time, whenever I thought of Dial, I thought of a golden bar of soap. Who knew that they would start cranking out body washes that leave the skin cleansed and silky smooth?

The concept behind this body wash is that it is to leave your skin feeling moisturized AND light. And how do they do this, you ask? With Fruit Oil.

By using a combination of hydrating fruit oils and soothing extracts, these body washes give you that cleansed feeling without feeling greasy. You know what I’m talkin’ about, don’t you, girlfriend? After you rinse, some body washes just leave you with an icky and greasy feeling. No me gusta.

I’ve never experienced this kind of feeling with a body wash that was not creamy. Talk about beating a misconception! I only thought creamy body washes could do that!

And do you see those itty bitty micro-beads?

The kid in me had to mash it up to see what it would do.

They baby beads are made up of fruit oils that provide deep moisturization. I can dig it! And the price is a steal to. You can get a 16-ounce bottle of the Grapeseed and Lemongrass (shown) or the Cherry Seed and Mint for only $3.99. Not bad at all!

If you’re looking to try a new body wash, hang up and dial…Dial! Go ahead and laugh…you know my joke was funny. HA!

Carol’s Daughter: Ecstacy Gel and Body Butter

How my family knows what products to get me as gifts is such a mystery to me. I don’t live with any of them so how do they know that I DON’T have this and have never tried that? It’s amazing, I tell ya! I got Carol’s Daughter Ecstacy Gel and Body Butter for Christmas ’09 and um, wow…

Is that a WOW-good or WOW-bad? Hit the jump to read on.

Ecstasy Shea Souflee

Price: 3 out of 5 ($13 from CarolsDaughter.com)
Packaging: 3 out of 5
Overall: 5 out of 5

What it claims:
“This luxurious formula is light and fluffy like a soufflé, but moisturizes skin with the intensity of a butter. It’s packed with natural butters and oils to effectively nourish and hydrate dry, parched skin for a soft and velvety appearance.

The perfect blend of succulent nectars shines throughout this fruit medley. Accented with Egyptian musk, precious amber, as vanilla bourbon completes this captivating fragrance.” (source)

The truth:
This stuff smells soooo sweet!

What I loved about it: I love the consistency. It is perfect for the winter time.

What I didn’t like:
The packaging isn’t too hot. When you have used up at least half of the souflee, you literally have to do a 3-finger reeeeach to get to the bottom of the pot.

Overall: I love love love it. The sweet smell is rather addicting. The souflee consistency does a great job at moisturizing even the driest skin. And the scent lasts all day. Loves it!

Next up….

Ecstasy Body Cleansing Gel

 


Price: 3 out of 5 ($13.50 from CarolsDaughter.com)
Packaging: 5 out of 5
Overall: 5 out of 5

What it claims:
“A natural soap blend, derived from coconut, olive and jojoba oils combined with exotic aromas for a gentle rich lather that leaves skin fresh, clean, rejuvenated and moisturized. Perfect shower or bath. ” (source)

The truth:
Just as good as the souflee!

What I loved about it:  Hmmm…the smell! It smells like a baked apple pie drizzled with honey. Hmmm…

What I didn’t like:
N/A

Overall: By the time you will have read this review, I will be on my second bottle of this gel. First of all…it comes out of the bottle like honey. It isn’t sticky but looks like sweet nectar goodness. The gel consistency lathers well and rinses off easily leaving you with silky smooth skin.

I love love love this line. And so does every one else in the world because it seems to be sold out quite often on the Carol’s Daughter website. Anyone try anything from Carol’s Daughter Ecstasy line?

Beauty Review: Dove Nutrium Moisture Body Wash

Veteran Clumps readers know that I love me some Dove. Not too long ago and sang praises to the Visibly Smooth deodorant. Now it’s time to shout like mad for their newest body wash. Am I exaggerating or is it really the bomb diggity? Check the review…


Dove Nutrium Body Wash

Price: 5 out of 5 (12 oz for $4.99-$7.99)
Packaging: 4 out of 5
Overall: 5 out of 5

What it claims:

“• Repairs and maintains skin’s protective layer during cleansing
• Unlike moisturizers in other body washes, Dove Body Wash with NutriumMoisture™ penetrates surface skin deep down to replenish and nourish

• Clinically proven to significantly reduce dryness and improve moisturization” (source)

The truth:
Well, it’s from Dove so you already know it’s a wonderfully smooth and smells oh so clean.

What I loved about it: It feels soooo smooth!


What I didn’t like: Not much to NOT like. Affordable? Effective? Easy to find? That makes me one happy and clean lady!

Overall: Most of us are all too familiar with Dove, the brand. If you haven’t tried their body washes, then you’ve probably tried their soaps, hair products or deodorants. I don’t know many people who have bad experiences with Dove. Aside from keeping moisture one of their top priorities when it comes to skin care, they are also very conscious about taking care of the sensitive skin peeps of the world. Gotta love that.

The idea behind this new body wash is the introduction of NutriumMoisture technology. You can read more about it here but basically it allows moisture to get deep down in the skin instead of just sitting on top. Kinda like this…..
Pretty friggin ‘awesome, right? I’ve been looking forward to this luscious stuff after every work-out.
The nozzle….
Ohhh, creamy baybeeee….
And it still stays creamy after hittin’ water.
Love iiiiit. It comes in Deep Moisture, Gentle Exfoliating and Sensitive Skin.
You can find these anywhere Dove products are sold.
Are you a Dove lover? Tried this yet? Whatcha think?
