I wish I could tell you that I enjoy some “me-time” each day when I step into the shower, but the truth is, I’m rarely alone in there. My girls can hear the call of the running water through closed doors and deep sleep and immediately understand that is where they should be. Though they may balk at their own bath time, my bath time is different. It’s encrypted in their DNA to encroach upon it. And I abide. I know I won’t be sharing the shower with rubber ducks and mermaid dolls forever, and one day, I’ll miss it. But even now, while I’m fighting for tub territory, I can take pleasure in my products – the ones without a cartoon character or the word “wacky” written somewhere on the packaging, the ones that are just for me. The ones that make my sudsy squatters say, “That smells like mommy.”

I love Dove products. So, I jumped at the chance to try VisibleCare Creme Body Wash, a revolutionary premium line of body wash from Dove that’s available in three variants: Toning (to promote skin’s elasticity and strength), Renewing (to nourish and replenish skin) and Softening (to soften skin and dry spots).

Dove VisibleCare Softening Creme Body Wash
I used the Softening variant and was immediately impressed with the thick, rich lather. But I was anxious to see if it would indeed give me “visibly more beautiful skin in just a week” courtesy of NutriumMoisture technology. (VisibleCare Creme Body Wash has the highest concentration of it across the Dove portfolio.)

I won’t keep you in suspense. It did. Absolutely, it did give me softer and more beautiful skin. I actually noticed a difference in less than a week. Dave did, too. He doesn’t notice when I get my hair cut or wear make-up, but he noticed the softness of my skin and commented on it.

That’s some soft skin, people.

And he loved the fragrance. It’s a white floral gourmand fragrance that includes an elegant combination of magnolia and pink jasmine. I don’t mind that that’s the scent that Dave and my girls identify with me. And I don’t mind giving up my “me-time” in the shower when my body wash makes me feel so good in my skin the rest of the day.
