As far as I can remember, I've only ever opted for gel body washes, but I was seriously impressed when I tried out Dove's Body Wash Mousse This Year's Healthy Beauty Awards . It actually won an award for the Best Body Wash for Dry Skin and I can tell you that the title is well-deserved. I'm happy to say that my skin has not felt dry or inflamed once after showering with this mousse. I've even used it for shaving because it's that gentle. Though the product comes in three scents-coconut oil, rose oil, and argan oil-my favorite is the coconut oil one, which has a subtle yet pleasant smell. All three varieties contain moisturizing glycerin, and the coconut and argan oil varieties also contain essential oils, which derms say are especially hydrating .
That's not to mention the sheer indulgence of showering with this. The mousse goes on with a thick and rich lather, as opposed to a more liquid-y or bubbly gel option. Using it feels like bathing in a frothy dessert, which made me feel almost giddy the first time I tried it. It was like whipped cream! At first I was uneasy about how quickly we were burning through this stuff boyfriend loves it, and a little goes by a long way. One pump will do it for a full body wash, though it's so good you may be encouraged to indulge. And the best part? I know the drugstore price point Do not put me over-budget.
