Skincare Monday: Dove Indulgent Nourishment Body Lotion Review

Hi Everyone!

Yeah! I’m late by a day so I’m doing the Skincare Monday feature today! I’m going to review on Dove Indulgent Nourishment Body Lotion.

Price: Rs.90 for 100ml

  • It’s a rich blend of nourishment cream and shea butter extracts gives your skin a beautiful glow
  • Includes natural skin nutrients and rich essential oil to help gradually improve skin starting deep down
  • 24 hr protection
  • Deep Care Complex
  • For normal skin
  • Dermatologist tested


My Take on Dove Indulgent Nourishment Body Lotion:

Dove Indulgent Nourishment Body Lotion comes in deep white body with flexible top flip cap. The body lotion is in deep white in color. It has fragrance of shea and cocoa butter. It might smells like Vaseline cocoa butter body lotion if you used it! The body lotion has thick consistency and very creamy texture which melts right away on skin when applied.

I use Dove Indulgent Nourishment Body Lotion every other day. Lately I had tired Dove and now I’m using this variant of dove. Dove indulgent body lotion is very creamy and soft to use. The thick body lotion doesn’t come out easily but glides very smooth and even on the skin’s surface. The aroma of shea butter is not over-powering at all and it is mild indeed. The sweet fragrance lingers around for about 30 to 40 minutes. After the body lotion my skin feels very soft and smooth. The skin moisturisation lasts about 5 to 6 hours only, you need to reapply the body lotion if you want to keep yourself moisturized.
The body lotion moisturize skin from deep but the skin turns bit dull or oily-like feel which I’m not a fan of. It keeps my skin fresh but not hydrated. Skin doesn’t feel greasy at all for hours. Get absorbed so quickly within seconds and provide good moisturisation effect.

Compare to Vaseline cocoa body lotion, Dove body lotion effects are quite lesser, the moisturisation effect last few hours only and doesn’t deep moisturize the skin. It suits better for dry to normal skin. If you are looking for a light body lotion for this summer then you can choose Dove Indulgent Nourishment Body Lotion, only if you have dry-normal skin.   

Pros of Dove Indulgent Nourishment Body Lotion:
  • Affordable
  • Available
  • Absorbs quickly within seconds by skin
  • Leaves good moisturisation effect on skin
  • Sweet fragrance of shea butter is a treat
  • Moisturize skin instantly and leaves supple skin

Cons of Dove Indulgent Nourishment Body Lotion:
  • The moisturisation effect doesn’t last long
  • Skin turns bit oily-like post application
  • Doesn’t provide any deep moisturisation effect on skin

Overall Rating:

Dove Indulgent Nourishment Body Lotion is for dry to normal skin type with medium moisturisation effect. It provides supple and soft skin instantly but feels bit oily-like over time. This is a Light and mild body lotion for this summer which is very suitable for daily day use. It doesn’t provide any protection over harsh sun.

Rating:  3.15/5
