Soften those legs! (review and giveaway)

Summertime equals lots running and lots of shorts wearing. And shorts wearing? Well, that means I'm showing my legs and if I'm showing my legs I sure want them to be smooth. And soft.

This would be where the new Dove VisibleCare Softening Creme Body Wash comes in. Part of the new premium body wash line, the Softening Creme Body Wash is designed to soften dry skin (as the name suggests) in just one week.

So, I tried it out. Now, I'm not the biggest body wash girl -- I primarily stick to soap but occasionally branch out. I don't like anything with a scent that's too heavy. Nor do I like anything that is too thick and doesn't rinse off easily. In other words, I'm a tough customer.

The Dove VisibleCare Softening Creme Body Wash has the scent thing going for it. Although it is scented, it isn't overpoweringly perfume-y. It's a soft scent and it doesn't bother me. Which is more or less a win.

The actual body wash, however, was a different story. Not a bad story, certainly. In fact, it works exactly as it claims to: It softens. And since the purpose is to soften, well, the body wash is thick. And creamy.

And, let me tell you, absolutely perfect as a shaving cream substitute. OK, that might be one of those off-label uses but, honestly, it works. I didn't love it to wash my body -- too heavy for me, at least for summertime (would probably be a totally different story during the winter when my skin turns into Flake City by January). But then I used it for shaving my legs and it is great. The best part? I don't need to load up on moisturizing lotion after I shave. Normally, I'm moisturizing my legs after every shave and that can be a drag, especially on hot days. Now, I can skip that step thanks to my Dove VisibleCare Softening Body Wash turned shave cream!

If you're looking for a body wash that really makes your skin softer, check out the Dove VisibleCare Softening Body Wash. Although it wasn't the perfect fit for me, it really does deliver softness. And it is terrific for leg shaving!

I'm a big body wash fan. My absolutely favorite is Philosophy. Very pricey for bodywash, I tend to stock up at gift giving seasons. Being a woman of Color, we are usually taught as young children to lotion our entire bodies after a bath and when we get up in the morning, so I love deep moisturizing. And it shows, smooth skin, very little aging. My mom looks AMAZING!!!

Good luck on the drawing. Love you blog.
