Hello everyone,

Today’s review will be about Dove Hydro Nourishment Body Lotion, which I had picked up a few months ago. Let’s see whether it should be on your must-try list.

Dove Hydro Nourishment Body Lotion Review

Product Description:
Looking for the best moisturizer for dry skin? Hydro Dove Nourishment Body Lotion moisturizes and nourishes the skin from the nucleus. The dermatologically-tested formula can be used for all skin types. It is suitable for everyday use and is rapidly and completely absorbed into the skin without leaving a residue. This lotion contains our unique Deep Care Complex, a combination of their own skin nutrients and rich essential oil deep penetrating into the skin for a soft and supple skin.

My Experience with Dove Hydro Nourishment Body Lotion:

Like all other Dove body lotions, this one also comes in a sturdy white plastic bottle with a flip open cap. All product details are written on the body of the bottle. It’s slightly big but if you want to carry it for travels, I would advice you not to. The liquid being runny tends to seep out slightly or gush out on opening if it’s in a tilted position. Spare the mess.

I got this lotion a few months back. While it failed badly in the winter months, I hoped to use it as a summer lotion. The worst thing is that it doesn’t work even in the summery weather of Mumbai. The lotion is white and liquid-y. It’s like milk mixed with water. The runny thin consistency is good for absorption in skin, but it really disappears within minutes. I mean it evaporates leaving no trace of hydration. While it provides a “cooling” sensation and quenches the thirst of my skin initially, the hydration is very short lived.

Winters demand intense moisturization and this failed badly. Within an hour, my skin would start feeling stretchy and would need reapplication. It isn’t possible to reapply this every half an hour or so, hence I gave up. And mind it, I won’t call my skin dry or parched, so imagine the horror someone with extremely dry skin would face.

Mumbai winters are very short lived and not harsh at all. By February, the weather is scorching and resembles Indian summers fully. I hoped that now at least this lotion would be put to good use, but I apply it after bath before going to class and within 15 minutes of stepping into the AC classroom, my skin starts cursing me. It’s fine as long as you are out in sun and sweating.


Overall, this body lotion has been a disappointment and I wouldn’t recommend it.

Pros of Dove Hydro Nourishment Body Lotion:

  • Economical.
  • Good quantity.
  • Gets easily absorbed.
  • Decent for summer morning where you need just hydration.

Cons of Dove Hydro Nourishment Body Lotion:

  • Very runny.

  • Availability.
  • My skin doesn’t heal from dry patches.

Would I Recommend/Repurchase Dove Hydro Nourishment Body Lotion?
No, it didn’t do much for even my normal skin.
