Dove has come out with a new collection of body products, this time the line is fragrance driven. Basically, there are three great new scents (I've tried them all, I honestly can not come up with a favorite, I love them all) and all the products are available in each scent:
• Refresh: waterlilly and mint
• Energize: sparking grapefruit and lemongrass
• Cool Off: green tea and cucumber
The products are Body Wash, Bar Soap, Body Mist, Body Lotion, Deodorant, Shampoo, Conditioner, and Hand Wash! That is a lot of products, all of which contain the same scent, but are all great products. I had a chance to try out the Bar Soap, Body Wash and Deodorant.
Body Wash and Bar Soap
I have in the past been very loyal to my Olay Body Wash, but in the past few months it has slowly started disappearing from local stores. First from Costco, now I can't even buy it from Target. It no longer appears on the Olay site. I've tried other Olay products, but none of them (especially that horrid Ribbons Body Wash) were as moisturizing and could replace my Olay Complete. Well, I now have a reasonable replacement, Dove Go Fresh! I truly will be stocking up on these body washes, this is my new everyday body wash.
Dove's Go Fresh has a nice lather, all three scents are amazing, I feel well cleansed afterwards and best of all this is a body wash that is very hydrating! I don't have to use a moisturizer on most of my body (just on the areas where I have eczema), and my skin still feels soft and supple afterwards. Fantastic!

Dove Go Fresh
As for the Bar Soap, it was also nice. It smells great, has a nice light lather and doesn't dry out my skin. It's a great option if you love bar soap, but I'm a body wash girl and I fell in love!
I have to disclose that I already use Dove's Ultimate Clear Deodorant, and I have since it was first released. I switched from Secret, which had somehow stopped working on me. Secret (in a "clear" formula) was still leaving white marks on my clothes, I was sweaty and had to reapply. And I'm not a sweaty person.
The Go Fresh deodorants are just like my regular Ultimate Clear Deodorants, but with great new scents! I can't see the deodorant on my skin (though I do admit that I can get white streaks on clothes if I dress immediately, but if I wait a few minutes for the deodorant to dry this does not happen), and best of all I have no sweat! I love having new scent options.
