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
• Energizing Body Mist
• Energize Beauty Bar
• Energize Beauty Body Wash
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/-
This is what the pack looks like. Believe me it’s huge…. 😀 😀
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. :))
Swatch of the product
I don’t know if my cam picked them nicely but if you zoom in the pic you can see small yellow beads…they are so cuteeeeee :cute:
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!! 🙂

Ramya….I din’t see this scent here ?:) ?:)
I want to smell it now :scream: :scream: :scream:
lol..it is, for sure, delicious!!! i got it at big bazaar….thane.. 😛
n yea..one more thing…does the body wash’s fragrance last long or does it fade away a few minutes after the bath?? just wanted to know before i picked it up.. :methinks: :methinks: :methinks: :methinks:
Ramya u from Mumbai??? great!!!
They last for like about 30 mins only. Not much. Actually in this heat…no fragrance can last more than this :(( :((
thats why layering with deo is good idea
yep! born and raised in Mumbai!! n 30 minutes is not bad… 😛 cos most of the shower gels’ fragrance dissapear the moment you’re out of the shower…
i love Dove’s deo, they made my underarms..somehow…prettier.. 😛 and the fragrance lasts till my next bath (12 hrs approx 😉 😉 ..)…even when i go out in Mumbai’s heat.. :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo:
great….I am from Mumbai too. And I totally understand what u mean with the heat specially humidity washes off all the fragrances. And this does last pretty well. But then you won’t be able to smell any fragrance after 2 mins….the brain gets familiar. 😛
And the deo is really nice. Me too like them. But I had Silk dry from Dove which irritated my skin a lot. :((
yea…i tried silk dry and i got this painful bump on my underarm which was there for about 3-4 days….i was too scared to tell anyone, let alone go to the doctor….so i used to just use it as a room freshener.. 😛 😛
but i liked this one’s smell a lott :woot: :woot: :woot: !! so i decided to get it…so far, it hasnt done anything to my underarms.. 😛 😉
me will look for it…. abhi me happy wid my H2O ka shower gel…. :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:
hahaha….yeah orange wala na :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo:
uske baad lemon try kariyo :teddy: :teddy:
lemon…ohkieee…..but me liked spring tide too at d store..woo mann hai lene ka 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐
really……..chalo get what u like!! :pompom: :pompom:
I love the body spray..this one toh i would def nt get here pakka :(( :(( u enjoy this one :daayan: :daayan:
awww…..try karo Shweta. You might find it at Big bazaar too :yahoo: :yahoo:
haan..chappa chappa chaan marungi :tongue: :tongue:
Shweta……try till you succeed…. :preen: :preen:
I too have one of their body washes and I so love them…jinal I hv a question to u. What concealer do u use. I use MAC ka studio finish one in NW35 and not so happy with the result :yuck: . By the way I’m NC42 too :teddy:
Kaps I use MAC select moisture cover duo (mickey contractor limited edition one)…..also I use MAC select cover-up concealer in NC 43…I have horrible dark circles 😛
