Review- Dove Sensitive Skin Nourishing Body Wash

Gives you soft, smooth skin all day. Contains hydrating emollients that sink into your skin. Soap-free formula, unscented. $5.29 for 24 oz.

First of all by "unscented" Dove means "it-smells-like-our-traditional-oval-soap-unscented." I am not sure how this works as a shower gel specifically for sensitive skin because weirdly enough, I started to get some rash-like bumps on my arms and legs (I do not identify as a sensitive skin person, btw). All of that said, this stuff is creamy and thick and the scent is subtle and it's foamy and at the end of the shower, your skin feels really nice. So aside from my suspicious reaction, I do like this shower gel and I will use the rest of the bottle in some capacity with pleasure.

Sultana says: I love Dove. My mom always used Dove's Sensitive skin version. I never tried the body wash before. Even though it is for sensitive skin, it doesn't make you feel any less clean. The smell is nice and light and oh so right! I will continue to buy Dove for my family.

I bought Dove Sensitive Skin Nourishing Body Wash because I have sensitive skin. After several weeks of using this product I developed an itchy rash on my arms and legs and have had to discontinue use. This is unfortunate because the product has a light, pleasant scent and lathers well.

It sounds like you have Super-Sensitive skin! One wash I would recommend for you is the Aveeno Oatmeal bar soap. It's not reviewed on the site, but my husband uses it for his psoriasis. It's worth a try. Also, when my face is acting sensitive I go back to basics & use Cetaphil lotion cleanser on it. You could use that on your whole body. HTH.
