Dove Body Silk Cream Review


This cream was given to me by her sister when I was at home last time ,she said it was way too moisturizing for her and asked if I wanted it .As always ,we never say no to free things,specially if it’s a cosmetic product 😛 I happily took it and brought it with me . 🙂


What it Claims : Energy rich moisturisers and pure silk for silky soft skin

Price : The place where price was printed has faded ,but I think its around 200INR for this 250 ml tub

Dove Silk Glow Body Silk Cream

After taking it from my sister ,I just completely forgot this cream and it got buried somewhere deep inside my cupboard. Once,I was feeling my skin was getting very rough,dried and dehydrated and that was when I remembered about this Dove Body cream.

Its name is itself so appealing – “Silk glow” plus its packaging with cream coloured tub is so soothing that it gives you a belief its going to do good for your skin. Plus it’s a Dove cream,I have personally liked dove, from the time I first used those soap bar. I am sure most of you must have atleast once used their soap bars . I even liked their shampoos a lot but they use to leave a residue on my scalp,so I had to switch them .

Coming back to Dove Body Cream,I felt the texture was quite thick and it wouldn’t get absorbed easily in the skin . But when I used it on one side of my arm I was so surprised to see it got absorbed very quickly and it literally made my skin glowing and shining ,my skin felt hydrated . I was so happy about the cream that I used it all over my body and happily sat down . After a sometime,I felt a nasty smell coming from somewhere ,after a few sniffs I realised it was ME ! That body cream was giving out dirty stingy smell and I couldn’t figure out why. I opened the cream tub again and smelled it,the smell their was alright but after a few minutes of applying it on my skin,it would start smelling badly. I though may be the cream was expired or something but when I checked its expiration date it was in 2013. I made my room mate smell it too and she literally ran out of the room smelling it . I had to wash my entire body after that .

So anyways ,after all this mishap I called my sister and asked her about the smell and then she told me she gave me the cream because she hated the smell .

Dove Silk Glow Body Cream






Dove Silk Glow Body Cream

  • It gets absorbed pretty quick
  • Makes skin very smooth and glowing
  • Moisturizes skin very well without leaving an oily film over it
  • Makes you want to touch your skin again and again
  • I feel its great for both summers and winters since its not to oily and it provides the right moisture needed by the body


  • The smell is sarcastic I cannot withstand it all
  • I don’t like the tub packaging,makes it a little difficult to use

Will I purchase it again?

No NEVER EVER ! I will probably run if I even see it in the market. I am thinking to gift rest of the cream to my enemies ! You should buy it only and only if you can withstand it or else you should definitely stay away from it

IMBB RATING : :-* :-*  (minus three for the disgusting smell )

    1. Haha..thats a very nice idea jomol :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:
      But this one is not so thick like the other dove cream which comes in blue tub,this one gets absorbed super easily

      1. yeah, but smell is bad na…….if you use on feet, then no bad smell na…… :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: but the tub looks kind of cute na……you can use your tic tacs after it gets over :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

  3. r u sure its real coz i see lots of dove fake cosmetics in my town………my sa showed me dove tinted moisurizer , dove nail paints dove lipstick and dove age defying lotion and all were dirt cheap i didnt buy it but lots of ladies do purchase these fake cosmetics

    1. Hey ashna, I dont think it was fake ,i asked my sister about it and all the dove creams are priced around the same rate 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐
      But you might be right ,who knows :struggle: :struggle: :struggle: :struggle:

  4. so bad that the smell didn’t suit u…… but the pros look good too….. maybe like others suggested use it on ur feet nd finish it off….. 🙂

  5. I love the mild smell of Dove products. Too bad it didn’t suit you. Maybe you got a defective piece by some chance. The tub sure looks quite cute. I like Jomol’s idea..use it up as a foot cream and use the tub for storing tic tacs 🙂

    1. Even I used to love their smell Ankita,but this one :sick: :sick: :sick: :sick:
      Finishing it off as a foot cream wont be a bad idea waise :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

  8. I love body creams that are super thick and moisturizing. 😛 I like most Dove products too, like you Ritika. :)) It;s really too bad this stinks. :-/
