When Winter comes around, I feel the need to pamper my body a tiny bit more. Nothing beats getting out of the bath or shower and giving yourself a little pamper. Pack on your favourite face mask, grab a hot beverage, stick on some candles and you’re good to go. Dove has brought out a pretty fantastic range of products in their new DermaSpa range* to make your pamper evening (and skin) a little bit better.
What got me the most excited out of this range was the body oils (Goodness, Uplifted). if you’re someone who doesn’t like to wait around for a thicker moisturiser to settle into the skin, using one of these gives you same soft and moisturised feel without all the hassle. They’re non-greasy, which is an absolute godsend, lightweight and gives you a really lovely shine that is perfect for prepping up dull Winter skin. The Uplifted Body Oil* has a really lovely fresh, cucumber and sweet musk scent which I’m completely in love with; it’s calming, relaxing and subtle. Perfect for a Sunday night pamper. The Uplifted+ Massaging Body Roll On* has a beautiful cooling gel which revitalises the skin, but ultimately, with the massaging balls, this was a little bit uncomfortable to apply but a truly lovely idea, that with a little bit of patience, might just work.
I was very pleased to see a gradual tanner amongst the collection; I adore these in Autumn/Winter, I really do. My skin during Winter definitely goes very, very pale and very dull and I like to use a little gradual tanner to even things out and add a little bit of a healthy glow. The Summer Revived Body Lotion* is a really lovely addition to my collection and I just can’t help but keep reaching for it. It’s so moisturising and settles really lovely into the skin with non of that greasy business. This also adds a nice healthy amount of colour, just enough to notice the difference but not enough that total tan beginners can’t give it a go. I’m a really big fan, in fact, I’ve already added on a second bottle to my wishlist.
Lastly, hand creams. Not the most exciting beauty product of all time, but a staple that everyone needs to have in their collection. I have a few requirements; moisturising, fast absorbing and non-greasy, but it needs to do the trick. The Intensive Hand Cream* has made it’s way in to my handbag permanently and it’s where it’s going to stay throughout the reminder of Autumn/Winter. It leaves my hands feeling wonderful and once you apply it and rub it in, there’s no reminder of it. Meaning you can grab your phone, or your next product, and not worry about it slipping right out of your hands after. The Goodness Hand Cream* is what I now keep on my bedside table; this has a beautiful coconut and vanilla scent, which is really wonderful to apply just before bed. Again, it leaves my hands wonderfully soft and doesn’t have no greasy after feel. Also, you get a whole 75ml of product which I’m really impressed by!
Overall, I would throughly recommend you check out the Dove DermaSpa range this Winter as it’s full of beautiful products that work and all at budget friendly prices. What’s more, none of the products I use irritate my sensitive skin in the slightest, which is incredible and now makes buying moisturisers and oils a lot easier. I’m really impressed and I simply cannot get enough of these products.
