Hello beauties, I hope you all doing great. The summer heat is killing me here in Mumbai. It’s so humid here that I feel it might rain soon…atleast I wish 😛 . Anyways, coming back to today’s review which is my current favorite body wash. Everyone is familiar with Dove products in hair care, deodrant and soap range. But very few might know the body washes in their product range which they offer. Ok it’s not your fault…I guess the scenario in Indian market will always be same as compared to other fortunate foreign countries. I am fortunate enough to get this from Beauty Centre, Mumbai where they stock decent products which are not available in India.
What Dove has to say about their Go Fresh range? [got this from official dove (US) site]
The new Dove go fresh collection — including deodorant and matching body mists, beauty bars, beauty body wash, body lotion and hair care — offers bursts of freshness with trusted Dove moisturizers. These products, infused with just the right amount of nature-inspired fragrances to help you go fresh, are available in three delicious fragrances, including:
• Cooling Cucumber and green tea
• Refreshing waterlily and fresh mint
• Energizing grapefruit and lemongrass
(In India they have already launched the deodorants from these range…wohhooo).
Products under each range:-
• Cool Essentials Ultimate Clear Deodorant
• Cool Essentials Body Mist
• Cool Moisture Beauty Bar
• Cool Moisture Beauty Body Wash
• Refreshing Ultimate Clear Deodorant
• Refreshing Body Mist
• Refresh Beauty Body Wash
• Energizing Ultimate Clear Deodorant

The product I will review today is the Energizing Beauty Body Wash with Grapefruit and Lemongrass.
This is what the product claims-
Dove Energizing Beauty Body Wash contains an ultra-light hydrating formula, invigorating beads and the sparkling scent of grapefruit and lemongrass to give you a boost in the morning.
Quantity: 24 oz
Cost: INR 300/-
My Take on Dove Go Fresh Energize Grapefruit and Lemongrass Body Wash
When I first got this pack and opened the flap (yeah I like flap bottles…very easy peasy to use and hygienic), the fragrance filled up my bathroom instantly and it was so very refreshing. I immediately kind of woke up!!!…haha. This fellow lives upto the name….quite energizing and refreshing fragrance. The fragrance really adds a boost to your early morning showers. :yahoo: I found my perfect shower gel this summer. Not only the fragrance wins my heart but also the hydrating formula that makes my skin really soft. I have to admit that my skin is really dry all over as compared to my oily/combi skin on face. I even face problem of dry skin in summers and need a mild moisturizer (would love heavy ones but they can be pathetic in Mumbai humidity). And this shower gel comes to my rescue. The formula is so moisturizing and hydrating that I can skip my moisturizer after shower in summers. :))

Pros of Dove Go Fresh Energize Grapefruit and Lemongrass Body Wash
• Fragrance is out of the world…lives upto the claim of ‘energizing’.
• Very hydrading and moisturizing.
• Quantity is quite good.
• Affordable for given quantity.
• Love the packaging.
• The look of the product is quite tempting too…it’s a clear gel which has small yellow and orange beads!!
Cons of Dove Go Fresh Energize Grapefruit and Lemongrass Body Wash
• Availability might be a issue for many as this is an imported product which are difficult to find except few metros where there are import shops. I really hope Dove launches the body wash range here soon. :fingerscrossed:
• Contains parabens 🙁
Except these two I don’t find any cons for this body wash. I am more than happy with this.
Will I buy it again? YES, without any doubt. It’s my summer HG body wash now. :))
Whom would I recommend this to? Everyone out there who loves fruity, fresh, citrusy, yummy fragrance please grab onto this. Trust me you won’t regret!! 🙂
