Not only does Dove have amazing, affordable products, they also do a great deal to help women and girls recognize their own unique beauty. (I am sure you've seen all of the ads for Dove's Campaign for Real Beauty, right? LOVE these!)
Rather than feel bad about myself, I feel grateful. Grateful that I am still here, grateful that my entire outlook on beauty has changed, and grateful that I have the experience and wisdom to help my daughter avoid negative body image problems in the future.
Dove GETS it. They really do! In their Campaign for Real Beauty, they make it a point to lift the self-esteem of women and girls and show them that we're all amazing, just the way we are. (Are you humming that Bruno Mars song? I am!) Beauty isn't a hair color, a dress size, or the number on a scale. Women are all beautiful, worthwhile, and unique, and this should be celebrated. Kudos to Dove for having the courage to stand up against the norm!
Since I absolutely love Dove's products as well as their heart, I am thrilled to be a Dove Ambassador. This is a company I truly believe in, and it's a dream come true to be a part of the Dove family.
I am also excited because I get to share something brand new from Dove! If you're like me, you're already a fan of their body washes. They've always been fantastic, even in the bitter cold of winter. My skin has always been soft, hydrated, and yummy smelling after using Dove products.
Somehow, the folks at Dove have been able to take a good thing and make it even better! Dove Body Washes have improved their formula by combining the brand’s mildest cleansers with NutriumMoisture. This contains 100% natural moisturizers that your skin can easily absorb, keeping you feeling hydrated, nourished, and velvety soft. This is actually one of the mildest formulas on the market today.
I know what you're thinking...Mild cleansers are great, but often you sacrifice quality in some ways. Maybe the cleansers don't smell as nice, hydrate as well, or lather the way traditional cleansers do. Sure, they're gentler on the skin, but they're not always as luxurious feeling. And let's face it: We ladies like feeling pampered!
Well, with Dove's new formula, you sacrifice nothing. I have had the opportunity to try these new products, and they perform just as well as previous versions. Though the new Dove Body Washes are mild, they still provide a rich lather that you don’t typically see in mild body washes. The Glycinate ingredient, typically found in high-end body washes, not only reduces damage to proteins during cleansing, but also creates a soap-comparable lather that rinses cleanly. And yes, it leaves your skin amazingly soft! I promise I will tell you lots more about these products very soon!
In the meantime, check out Dove on Facebook! Here you can find out all about Dove's product line, compare your current body was to Dove, and even find the best products for your unique needs. You can also share with your friends and get a valuable coupon! This is a very supportive, fun community, so I hope you'll join me there!
