Dove — Advanced Hair Series, Body Wash, Beauty Bar, & Anti-Perspirant Review

I received a selection of Dove products via Topbox Canada’s Glam Sense program (see my previous affiliated reviews here), which occasionally sends products to participants in exchange for reviews. The box contained the following items:

  • Nutritive Solutions™ Daily Moisture Shampoo
  • Nutritive Solutions™ Daily Moisture Conditioner
  • Deep Moisture Nourishing Body Wash
  • Beauty Bar, White
  • Go Sleeveless Original Anti-Perspirant

I don’t currently use any Dove products, with the exception of Clear Tone Sheer Touch Anti-Perspirant, so I thought it’d be interesting to compare mainstream drugstore products to the more natural products I tend to use for hair and body care.

The first two products are for hair, so I’ll describe my hair type as shoulder-length, thick, straight, and dry. There is a more detailed description of my hair type in my TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Reverse System review.

TRESemmé — Beauty-Full Volume Reverse System Review

TRESemmé, the international hair products company, is releasing a “Reverse” haircare system that consists of conditioning the hair before shampooing. Sounds weird, right?

I’d heard of co-washing before, but not this; and yet, it appears that this reverse method of hair cleansing and conditioning has been around for some time (see this overview at Nouveau Cheap, which I’ll reference later in this post). TRESemmé, of course, nearly talk about their system like it’s ground-breaking—it’s new and a game-changer—but to be fair to them, I hadn’t heard of it until I saw their new product line!

I recently signed up with Topbox Canada’s Glam Sense program, which occasionally sends products to participants in exchange for reviews. The TRESemmé package I received last month is the first time I’ve ever participated in Glam Sense.

Peanut interference.

As I said, I wasn’t familiar with this method of hair conditioning, so I was pretty excited to try it out!

I’ll lay out the facts about my hair now, so that we all know what we’re dealing with in this review:
