If you follow me on Instagram, you probably knew by now that I put on hold all my existing facial washes and will actually go back to facial cleansing in its' simplest form --- the use of bar soap.
When I received the #Dove7DayTest Kit, I literally nodded and said: "I'll Do It!"
I wasn't scared at all because I've been accustomed on using Dove Facial Cleanser (remember my Pregnancy Skincare post?) , not really the bar soap but if a particular brand or "line of product" works for me, I have confidence that their whole line would work for me too! I don't know about you but let me know if you feel the same!
So I immediately used Dove White Beauty Bar soap that night when I received the kit. Look at my face! It was 1:00am, I was tired from all the day's activities and my skin was extremely dry.
You don't believe it? Let me zoom it for you!
Hi-definition camera, I am starting to dislike you! :P
Yes, I may not have large pores but the dry skin condition makes my face look like a Sahara Desert! I only need a couple of camels roaming around my face and the picture is complete!
Now joking aside, I gave the Dove White Beauty Bar soap a try! It didn't feel much different as that of my favorite Dove Beauty Moisture Facial cleanser the moment I lather it up! The familiar wonderful scent immediately soothe my tired senses and I was immediately in good mood! (Keep in mind the scent is personal preference, some may like it, some may not...I DO!)
That is me channeling "Dove Beauty Ad" #LOL But seriously, it was a genuine smile! Skin did not feel dry or rough and for that ultimate test, I went to bed without applying any moisturizer.
So I did that for the rest of 7 days! On the 7th day, I took a close-up photo of my skin just for reference! I personally think it didn't do anything or there wasn't much changes on 7th day! What I've been doing for the past 7 days though is how much I love to wash my face! I'm not sure if it's the weather or it is just the feeling of "soap" not doing enough of the job, I kept on washing my face and I ended up even doing up to 4-5 times in a day!
7th Day "Unforgiving" Close-Up SkinStill dry right? I thought so too! But when I connected both my Pre-Dove Beauty Bar photo and the after 7-days of Dove Beauty Bar Soap photo, I was surprised!
There was indeed a difference! Photos aren't photo-shopped by the way guy, I won't get rich if I do so! *laughs* So yeah, all you see is the real thing! I am really impressed!
If I'm not a Beauty Blogger doing product reviews on different skincare brands, I wouldn't mind just staying with Dove White Beauty Bar Soap! Since I'm going back to testing, I find myself to use this soap to wash my face and body on every shower time!
I now call this my "In-between facial washing soap"! No matter how many times I wash my face, my skin didn't turn out dry or flaky at all! So good job Dove!
And best of all, no breakouts for me!
