My Simple Secret to Great Skin

dove dry oil products

Recently at one of James’ family’s gatherings, his cousin complimented me on my skin. I always find this compliment funny (in addition to flattering, of course), because I don’t have a super strict or detailed skincare routine. I don’t spend hundreds of dollars on La Mer creams that the celebrities use and I don’t spend a full hour massaging products on my face before bed every night. That’s just crazy! So when people ask me for my “skincare secrets”, I feel like I’m often letting them down. My secret is to keep it simple. 

Dove Dry Oil Beauty Bar

For as long as I can remember, I’ve used Dove products on my skin. When my girlfriends were using heavily-scented body washes (which always gave me a headache) or trying out crazy exfoliating tools (which would have just ruined my sensitive skin), I just used good ol’ Dove cleanser. It’s gentle, nourishing, and gets the job done — all without irritating my skin. Over the years, my Mom would try all of the Dove cleansing products. I vividly remember falling in love with a pink-colored and feminine-scented cleanser they came out with when I was in high school. I’m sure my parents were bathing me with Dove products even at a young age, too — but of course I wouldn’t remember that.

Flash forward to today. 27-year-old Rachel is still happily using her Dove cleanser. And I’ve partnered with Dove to tell you all about their New Dove Dry Oil Collection featuring their Dove Dry Oil Beauty Bar and Dove Dry Oil Moisture Body Wash. Did you know 9 in 10 women are concerned about having dry skin? Dove Dry Oil Moisture Body Wash goes beyond basic moisturizing to help women nourish and protect their dry skin. Their new collection gently cleanses and cares for your skin while helping you shower away dry skin. The beauty bar and body wash are made with Dove’s signature mild formula (with ¼ moisturizing cream and Moroccan Argan Oil), to nurture your skin — especially when it’s feeling dry. As an added bonus, the body wash and beauty bar smell amazing — not too overpowering or floral.

  1. Ahhh Rachel, how adorable is that baby picture of you?!!?!?! You still look the same. Seriously, you have beautiful skin. Maybe I need to add some Dove into my routine and cut back on the other stuff

  2. I enjoy looking at your blog. I have been using dove sensitive skin bar and really like it. I was curious what body lotion do you use or recommend?

    1. Thank you! I have been using Vaseline Cocoa Butter lotion for years. I swap out for a new lotion every now and then, but this is the one I use 75% of the time.
