Review: Dove Purely Pampering Nourishing Body Lotion With Shea Butter And Warm Vanilla

Skin type: Normal to dry


Hello there!

Dove is a well-known name when it comes to skincare and it offers a wide array of body lotions in the Indian market. I have tried almost all their lotions and the one that I am reviewing today is the Shea Butter And Warm Vanilla variant. So if you wish to know how this one turned out for me, then please stay tuned and keep on reading!

What The Brand Claims: Dove Purely Pampering’s comforting and creamy fragrance of warm Vanilla leaves you feeling balanced. The unique DeepCare Complex includes skin natural nutrients and rich essential oil to help gradually improve skin starting deep down.* (Within Stratum corneum)

Packaging: Like most Dove body lotions, this one too comes in a beautiful bottle form. It has a flip-top cap that shuts tightly with a click, making it secure to carry around. All the vital details like date of manufacturing, shelf-life, MRP, net volume as well as the ingredient list are clearly specified. All in all, the packaging is beautiful, hygienic as well as travel friendly.

Ingredient List:

Water, Glycerin, Palmitic acid & Stearic acid, Caprylic/Capric,Triglyceride, Dimethicone, Glycol Stearate, PEG-100-stearate, Cyclopentasiloxane,Petrolatum, Glyceryl Stearate, Helianthus Annuus(Sunflower)Seed oil, Isomerized,Linoleic acid, Lactic acid, Potassium lactate, Sodium PCA, Urea, Titanium Dioxide,Butyrospermum Parkii, Methylparaben, Phenoxyethanol, Propylparaben,Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Carbomer, Triethanolamine, Cetyl,Alcohol, Stearamide AMP, Disodium EDTA, Perfume.

My Experience With The Product: Dove Purely Pampering Nourishing Body Lotion with Shea Butter and Warm Vanilla has a really smooth, slightly thick texture. It beautifully spreads on the skin and quickly gets absorbed. Here I would specifically like to mention that in my past experience, Dove lotions often tend to leave my skin feeling slightly sticky; which I absolutely do not like. However, I was pleasantly surprised to see that this one felt lightweight and comfortable on my skin and not greasy or sticky. The skin feels baby soft, supple and thoroughly nourished after every use.


I feel this would best suit someone with normal to dry skin and would be ideal for the winter season. Now coming to the fragrance, it has a soft Vanilla scent that lingers on for some and then eventually settles down. If you are someone who is into Vanilla scents, then you will just love it! However, I personally am not a fan of such scents! The lotion comes in 3 different sizes and can be easily found both online as well as in stores.

Final Thoughts: To sum up, I would say that this is a great offering from the house of Dove. The lotion contains the goodness of Shea butter and has a smooth, creamy formula. It beautifully spreads on the skin and gets absorbed quickly. It leaves the skin feeling smooth, supple and moisturized, without being sticky or greasy. It has a lightweight and comfortable formula, which is great!

I personally am not a fan of Vanilla scents, so I won’t be repurchasing this solely because of the fragrance. But if you are someone who likes such scents, then you’ll definitely love it! In addition, it is easily available and comes at an affordable price tag too. Definitely Recommended!
