Description

Dove Silk Glow Beauty Body Lotion. Part of Doves Silk Glow range containing pure, well, silk (how fancy), this body lotion is also infused with golden light-reflecting particles and is a firm favourite of mine. It looks absolutely mighty with or indeed without a tan, imparting a gorgeous shimmering radiance to skin. No wildly obscene glittery particles here, mind, just a subtle, very daytime-appropriate glow coupled with lasting moisture. All that and a price tag of under a tenner? Shimmer-tastic.

Directions

Apply daily to achieve a softer and suppler skin with a radiant glow

User Reviews

+ great absorbtion
+ good moisturising properties
+ price
Weakest points
- too liquid (hence I always end up pouring more than I have intended)
- 'stale' scent
- shimmer
Summary
I got the Dove Silk Glow Beauty Body Lotion as a present back in 2012 and used it from time to time. It is a perfect moisturiser making the skin soft and smooth and leaving no irritating oily trace afterwards. Its absorption is beyond any compliments. The creamy substance with tiny shimmering golden particles kept my dry skin happy many times. The lotion's sturdy and robust packaging is designed for a firm grip while its lid is easily opened/closed and quite a leak-tight. The price of the product is one more benefit.
However, too liquid structure of the lotion does not contribute much to its thrifty use since I always ended up with more quantity than I needed. I also did not like the scent (cocoa was it? or cotton?). Though it was subtle, I felt like it was somehow stale. It might be my individual perception since I am into fresh and invigorating scents. And the last thing I did not appreciate the shimmer. I guess that is due to the fact that this trend has gone into the past (f.e. tanned shimmering legs) and now people go for more natural looks. Plus even if I might have had some fancy about having the abovementioned glittering legs, I also had shimmering palms after the application of the lotion and had to wash them.
Finally, even the generous pouring out of the lotion did not save me from still having some of it left unused. It happened due to the features of the Dove Silk Glow Beauty Body Lotion that I did not like (scent and shimmer mainly), hence though it is up to readers to decide, but I am not recommending this one.

Subtle shimmer for a healthy dewy skin glow

User Reviews

Strongest points
Medium consistency body lotion that absorbs easily and rapidly into the skin, leaving a subtle shimmer. Gorgeous with a tan or for special evening out. Subtle cocoa and natural scent. Softens, moisturises and soothes without chemical, parabens or animal by products. Practical and attractive pearlescent, flip top bottle and excellent value for money.
Weakest points
None
Summary
Dove body products are consistently good and I have never had complaint by way of the benefits for my skin. I am not a huge fan of shimmer products but I took this lotion with me on holiday last year and I was asked by several people how I kept my skin so healthy. Admittedly this was partly to do with the shimmer in this lotion that gives the illusion of healthy, glowing sin. The lotion is of a medium consistency that absorbs easily into the skin and gives deep and lasting moisturisation. The scent is beautiful and typically Dove with a hint of cocoa and cream. The shimmer is not overbearing and I loved it because it is not what I class as ‘disco diva’. I would be quite happy to use this lotion without the added shimmer but it does soften and hydrate the skin beautifully for an amazing price so I would highly recommend
