At a Glance:
Price: RM5.90 (approx. US$1.59)/ Rs. 125
Website: Unilever.com.my
Weight: 200ml
Made in: Vietnam (mine's bought in India. Notice that the local ones are made in China).
Likes: Lovely smell, not drying, cheap, easily available! :)

Repurchase: No
Jenn's Rating: 3.5 Stars!! Not bad! :D


Product Description:

Is it possible for skin to feel fully moisturized and still feel fresh?

Certainly, because Dove has combined its 1/4 hydrating milk with the uplifting scent of cucumber and green tea for a body wash that can refresh - and care for skin leaving skin feeling clean, fresh and hydrated.

Don't use occasionally. In skin care, everyday is everything

Texture & Scent:

This shower gel is just slightly thicker than your usual shower gels. It lathers up well so you don't have to use alot of product for your whole body! This one smells quite nice and refreshing! :)


I bought the smallest one available, which is the 200ml one that comes with a flip top cap. There're the 550ml and 1000ml pump versions available as well! :)

The dispensing hole:

Price & Availability:
This shower gel is priced at RM5.90 for 200ml, which is rather cheap (not so cheap in India though, i paid almost double that amount for the same damn thing!)! The 550ml one goes for RM12.90, and the 1000ml one goes for RM25.90. These should be available at most Watsons / Guardian outlets as well as your local supermarkets! :)

My $0.02:

I bought this one in India because i ran out of shower gels, and this was the only one available at the local supermarket (soaps are more common over there)! :D

This one lathers up quite well, and it cleanses effectively without leaving a tight feeling. I kinda like the refreshing scent too! However, it wasn't quite as "moisturizing" as i thought it would be, given the heavy advertisement on how they have 1/4 hydrating milk in every bottle blablabla. The Johnson's Baby Milk Bath still wins hands down when it comes to this! Because of that, i won't be repurchasing this one anytime soon! hehehe! :D

  1. well, like their hair shampoo, dove's 1/4 moisturizing milk is somewhat a lie? LOL.

    i have the blue one, i kenot remember the name, it cleanses well la, but i dun think it's that moisturizing lor. st ives one better :D

  2. oohh that sounds really nice, I can actually smell the scent while reading your post! I love body wash!!!

  3. I come from Viet Nam and really happy and surprised when I see this post. haha I used it before. Hmn, not moisturizer at all, but I like its smell :D

  4. I also thought Dove would be 'over'-moisturising with all their ads. Thanks for the review. I love your reviews, they're always so detailed.

  5. plue: ya i think you told me about that one before!! It's really a shame ya!! >.<

    I'm sticking to my J&J Milk Bath! haha! :D

  6. Nikki: yeah the scent is quite nice!! Is this one available over there? :D

  7. Lê Mai Trang: hello! *waves* thanks for dropping by my site! :D

    yeah, its not very moisturizing, but the scent is nice!! :D

  8. *aly: same here!! Now i've changed my perception of them!! haha!!

    awww... thank you hun!! Glad you find them useful! ;)

  9. Hi Jenn!

    I recently discovered your site, and I just wanted to tell you that you're doing some amazing work here! I love your reviews! :)

  10. Awww... thank you for the nice comment!! I'm really flattered and glad you liked them! :D

  11. this won't really work for those who have dry, extra-dry or sensitive skin
    because it is not design for that type of skin

    For a dry sensitive skin, it should be mild and fragrance-free.
