Dove Essential Nourishment Body Lotion (Fresh Cucumber & Tea Scent With Cooling Sensation) Review

Hello pretties!!!

Today I am going to review a lotion which is fully loaded with goodness of cucumber. If you like to apply such kind of lotions, which cools you in summers then you will surely like Dove Go Fresh Nourishment Body Lotion.

Product claims:

Fresh cucumber scent and cooling sensation
24 Hr
Deep care complex
For normal skin type
Fast absorbing
Dermatologically tested


Price: 350 Rs

Wt: 400 ml

Online availability: Nykaa, Purplle, Flipkart, Amazon, jabong, snapdeal etc.

Packaging: This lotion comes in a white colored bottle with same color flip cap. This lotion is enriched with cucumber that’s why even company has used green color in packaging. Overall packaging is very attractive but bit difficult to carry due to it’s heavy size.

My opinion: My mother gave me this lotion as she felt it was not suiting to her skin type. She has an oily skin like me and this lotion is for normal skin types. Even with oily skin, I thought t give it a try as I spend no money on buying it and even I will come to know how it will behave on my skin.

This lotion is of light green color (representing cucumber) but if you don’t pay attention then it looks like whitish in color. The texture of lotion is very soft and bit runny in consistency. It has a mild smell of fresh cucumber which is not overpowering. The fragrance stays for sometimes but then fades away.

This lotion takes time to absorb and it feels like that this lotion doesn’t penetrate inner layer of skin. It lacks deep nourishment that’s why it has to be applied 4-5 times. Company’s claims of 24 hours nourishment fail at this point.

Yes, this lotion is a good option for people looking for soothing effect through this lotion. This lotion does not have SPF so you need to apply Sunscreen before stepping out. If you are in home then it’s ok. So overall I
don’t find this lotion much appealing even if you have normal skin.

What I like about this product….

1. Easily gets absorbed in skin.
2. Economical.
3. Gives cooling sensation, what else we need in summers.
4. Easily available in local as well as in online market.
5. Makes skin silky smooth and soft.
6. Has Fresh cucumber scent.
7. Does not leave greasy effect.

What I do not like about this product….

1. 24 Hr nourishment claim is not true.
2. Suitable for summers only
