Review: Dove Indulgent Nourishment Body Lotion with Shea Butter

Hello, lovelies~ I bet you're already familiar with Dove's newest body lotion that was already out in the supermarket about a month or two ago. This is a very late review on the body lotion, but I had to make sure that I use it long enough to give my opinion on it. I place the body lotion in my bathroom on top of my toilet tank, so I will always remember to use it right after my shower. Hence, the weird background pink and red ceramic, instead of my regular white background. 

The body lotion comes in two sizes, I bought the small size (or regular sized). It is packaged in a white, tall bottle equipped with a flip cap on top. The bottle feels sturdy and doesn't break easily when it falls to the ground. That is quite important for a klutz like me.

The lotion is white with a lovely faux (synthetic) chocolate scent, that is surprisingly pleasant to my olfactory senses. It isn't as strong as Vaseline's Chocolate body lotion, but the scent is still there. It could probably be the Shea Butter scent, but to me, it smells like chocolate candy.

The body lotion uses petrolatum and shea butter as the main ingredients for the moisturizer. It also has silicone derivatives, so it doesn't feel sticky or greasy afterwards. It has perfume and parabens, but nothing to fear of, I'd say.

The white lotion is easily spread all over my arms and legs. It just sinks right in after a good minute, leaving my skin soft, smooth and moisturized. Although the lotion feels light on my skin, its ability to moisturize my skin is beyond words.

I'm blown away by its moisturizing ability since it looks like a lotion, but feels like I'm applying body butter on my arms and legs. That being said, I feel that the lotion is able to retain the moisturize within my skin for a good 6 hours or even more, I didn't really pay much attention.

I think it was priced under Rp 50,000 for the 250ml size, I forgot the exact price. However, I enjoyed applying this on my arms and legs because it didn't feel greasy afterwards. Another product from Dove that deserves my heart, good job!
