– doesn’t leave a residue behind
– pleasant, refreshing scent

What I didn’t like:
– if you don’t like the scent of cucumbers and green tea, this is not for you

Is there a brand you never pay much attention to? Mine is Dove. Maybe it’s the old lady reputation that, despite the brand’s efforts, is still hanging onto it, or maybe the simple, anonymous packaging that gets lost in a sea of bold, eye-catching bottles competing for my attention at the body care aisle.

Whatever the reason, it’s only when I get a sample through a magazine that I remember Dove exists. The last one I got was Go Fresh Cool Moisture Body Wash With NutriumMoisture, Cucumber & Green Tea, a gentle but effective body wash that leaves my skin clean and soft, just like any body wash should.

How? By using a very gentle blend of surfactants (ingredients that help water mix with oils and dirts so they can be rinsed away). Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Lauroyl Glycinate, and Sodium Lauroyl Isethionate can remove dirt from skin without stripping it of the sebum that’s keeping it naturally moisturized.

They also produce a nice amount of foam, although not as much as harsher surfactants such as Sodium Laureth Sulfate (this is harsher than the ingredients used here, but not so harsh to cause dryness and irritations in most people, like Sodium Lauryl Sulfate does!). It’s also easy to rinse off. It leaves no greasy residue behind.

Instead, I have mixed feelings about the scent. It mixes the sweetness of cucumbers with the freshness of green tea. The result is a light, pleasant, and refreshing aroma that’s, however, quite boring. I guess Tesori D’Oriente spoiled my nose.

My current favourite brand for bath and body care, they infuse their body washes with spicy, heady, exotic scents. They’re a dream come true for fragrance lovers like me. But after using those a simple scent like cucumber and green tea is just not going to excite me. But if you have simpler tastes, and love that “freshly-out-of-the-shower” scent, I have a feeling you will enjoy this very much.

Water, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Lauroyl Glycinate, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Lauroyl Isethionate, Acrylates Copolymer, Lauric Acid, Glycerin, Fragrance, Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Stearic Acid, DMDM Hydantoin, BHT, Tetrasodium EDTA, Etidronic Acid, Methylisothiazolinone, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Citric Acid, Blue 1 (CI 42090), Yellow 5 (CI 19140)

Dove Go Fresh Cool Moisture Body Wash With NutriumMoisture, Cucumber & Green Tea is a gentle, refreshing, and effective body wash that leaves skin clean, soft, and smelling lovely.
