Skin Type: Normal to Dry
I am really fond of body lotions and moisturizers and always keep a lookout for the new launches. Dove has recently launched 3 new lotions in India that are ‘Inspired By The Rituals Of Real Women’. I was quite fascinated with the concept and could not resist when I saw the ingredients Lotus Flower extract and Rice Milk! So finally, I gave in to the temptation and picked up the Glowing Ritual variant.
I have actually had a love-hate relationship with Dove lotions! Barring just one or two, none have really worked for me. Still, I was quite excited to try this one out! So without further ado, let’s jump right into the review and see how this one turned out for me! Stay tuned…
What The Product Claims: Give your skin a luxurious treat with Dove Glowing Ritual Body Lotion, inspired by beauty rituals of real women. The delicate formula blended with rice milk nourishes your skin deeply while sparkling floral scent delights your senses. Experience radiant looking skin that feels silky soft.
Packaging: Like all Dove lotions, this one too comes in a big bottle that is solid and sturdy. The pink and white packaging looks really pretty and also gives it a feminine touch. It has a flip-top cap which I wish would shut a little more tightly so that I can carry it around without worrying about spillage.
All the details such as price, ingredients, quantity, shelf life, manufacturing date and date of expiry are mentioned at the back of the bottle. Overall, the packaging is simple and fuss-free, but I really wish Dove would come up with something more catchy and fun.
Shelf Life: 24 months
My Experience With The Product: The Dove Nourishing Secrets Glowing Ritual Body Lotion contains Lotus Flower extracts along with Rice Milk. The texture of this lotion is really creamy and silky smooth. It glides on beautifully and gets absorbed in a jiffy! It instantly provides a boost of hydration and nourishment and you can actually notice how soft and supple the skin feels! It is light and comfortable and does not leave behind any greasiness. My skin stays moisturized and plump for a good 6 plus hours, which is great.
A little amount of product is sufficient for each use, so the product would go a long way. I feel this is perfect for winters and will especially be a boon for someone with combination to dry skin. Coming to the fragrance, it has an evident floral scent. But since I like my lotions to be mildly scented, I found this one quite overpowering for my sensitive nose. Now this is my personal preference, so you can definitely sniff it first before buying. Also, I usually like to go for a smaller variant first while trying out a new product, but this one comes only in two sizes as of now, i.e., 250 ml and 400 ml.

Final Thoughts: To sum up, I would say this is a great lotion from Dove. The texture is buttery smooth and blends beautifully. It leaves the skin feeling smooth and nourished without any stickiness. It is ideal for winters and would be great for someone with combination to dry skin. I just wish the fragrance was a little mild! But if you are fine with the scent, then by all means, do give it a try! 🙂
