I love Dove skin care lotion. It is reasonably priced and does the trick. I have tried many high priced specialty lotions and none of them do any better then Dove Hand and or body lotion. I like the consistency of it. Not to thick , not to thin. It is easy to rub into your skin and make it very smooth.Does not leave you with a greasy or oily feeling. For those that do not have a lot of money for expensive creams. I would recommened this one. Even if you do have the money I do not think the others are any better then Dove. I like the pump action bottle. It makes it a lot easier to get just the right amount you want. Whether it is your hands, arms legs or feet this is a good all purpose lotion. Gentle enough even for children. Effectiveness I have very dry skin especially in the Winter. Dove helps make my skin feel good and not look dry and flaky. It is easy to use. I use it two or three times a day in the winter to keep my skin smooth. Scent I like the scent. It is fresh and clean. Not to strong a scent just right.
