Refreshing shower gel | Dove Go Fresh


Dove is definitely gaining its momentum and place in the market. I remembered a decade ago, only Dove bar soap was available in the market because my then boyfriend now husband uses it. 

Subsequently, Dove started to produce shampoo, shower gel and antiperspirant. And I'm lucky enough to try their Go Fresh shower gel recently via www.tryandreview.com

Go Fresh Revive Body Wash

This is one out of the 3 Go Fresh Body Wash range. The other two are Energize (grapefruit and lemongrass scent) and Fresh Touch (cucumber and green tea scent). The Revive version comes with pomegranate and lemon verbena scent. Lemon verbena is a plant that can be used in cooking and made into tea as well.

The Go Fresh Revive body wash also uses Dove's NutriumMoisture™ technology to effectively deliver nutrients to the skin. It utilises the mild cleansing benefits of DEFI (Directly Esterified Fatty Isethionate) that reduces protein damage, and 100% skin-compatible natural moisturizers, including stearic acid, soybean oil and glycerin that are fully absorbed into the skin to replenish lipids lost during cleansing.


Gentle lather after moving the body wash with some water.

This is the whole ingredient list for the product.

Water,Sodium Laureth Sulfate,Cocamidopropyl Betaine,Glycerin,Sodium Cocoyl Glycinate,Perfume,Sodium Chloride,Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer,Glycol Distearate ,PPG-9,Phenoxyethanol,Stearic Acid,Coconut Acid,Sodium Hydroxide,Lauric Acid,Cocamide MEA,BHT,Sodium Benzoate,Tetrasodium EDTA, Sodium Isethionate, Citric Acid ,Phosphoric Acid,Oryza Sativa(Rice) Bran Oil , Methylisothiazolinone, Punica Granatum Fruit Juice,PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil,Trideceth-9,Tocopherol,Methylchloroisothiazolinone,Potassium Sorbate ,Lactic Acid, CI 17200

Punica Granatum (pomegranate) Fruit Juice
provides UV protection and helps to repair sun damaged skin. It also has high levels of vitamin C and antioxidants which are great skin food.

Rice bran oil has lots of beneficial Omega 6 fatty acids that moisturises the skin, as well as Vitamin B and E with antioxidants.

Tocopherol aka vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant and anti-aging ingredient.

What does Dr Yingzangel think?


Dove Go Fresh Revive body wash is fairly gentle on the skin and doesn't dehydrate the skin after cleansing. After cleansing I can feel that my skin is softer. My hubby with ezcema could use this shower creme without his ezcema flaring up. I personally love the sweet scent the Go Fresh Revive body wash has that can last for at least half an hour.  For its price tag, it's an affordable brand and a body wash that is suitable for many.

But it may not be suitable for those with more severe eczema because it still contains laurate and stearate. Classic medical teaching advises ezcema sufferers to avoid these cleansing agents as they tend to dry the skin too much. The added perfume,  methylchloroisothiazolinoneand and benzoate as preservatives may also cause allergic reactions in those susceptible to it. So always do a patch test before using new products.

Overall, Dove is a quality product and is widely available at major pharmacies like a Guardian and Watson's.
