Don’t Fear The Oil In Dove’s Cream Oil featured image

When I first heard that Dove‘s new Pro Age line included a moisturizer called Body Cream Oil, I was a bit taken aback. Ever since I was old enough to be interested in beauty products, “oil-free” was stressed to me. Now I’m being told that my skin could actually benefit from oil. Olive oil, specifically, combined with glycerin and emollients.

Together, the ingredients are supposed to add nutrients, fortify, condition, and improve cell turnover. I had no doubt that they would. What I wanted to know was what was supposed to make this feel so different? I threw caution to the wind-OK, it wasn’t that dramatic-and I tried it.

Wow. Seriously, wow. This is the thickest, richest drugstore body moisturizer I have ever experienced. Not only that, but it gave my skin a beautiful glow that lasted (unlike regular moisturizers, where the glow fades almost immediately with absorption, or shimmer lotions, which I just don’t like). I love this stuff. And in regards to the oil portion of Body Cream Oil, I can see only benefits. What a nice surprise.
