It's ME time- w DOVE Bodywash

I have never been a morning person. For as long as I can remember, even if I woke up early, I would lay in bed, postponing the day as long as possible. (i believe this is when i honed my supersonic hearing, eavesdropping on the rest of the house) Mornings? Not me time. More like, let me sleep time.

One of the few pleasures I take in the am is my shower. Long, luxurious, hot- love it. I could stay in for hours. When DOVE gave me the opportunity to enjoy that shower time a little more by reviewing their new line of body wash? Yes please!
I was lucky enough to try the Dove Softening Body wash, part of their VisibleCare line with Nutrium Moisture. I have GOT to say- this review could not have come at a better time. One of the most annoying side effects of the estrace pills I've been taking for the IVF cycle is that is dries me out like the Sahara. I'm thirsty all the time, and I'm practically drinking lotion. You know when you can just feel the ashiness on your legs and arms? The itchy dryness? Yeah. That.

Swear I'm not just overly emoting myself, but this Dove stuff is a lifesaver. It's so thick it looks like lotion coming out, smells amazing, and seriously lets the moisture sink into my arms and legs. The scent is so much that my sensitive first trimester nose can't handle it, and lingers into the morning. I still need to lotion a bit in the morning, but if I'm running late? No biggie. (Bonus? It works as a great shaving cream in a pinch!)

It claims that you can see visible improvement in just 7-days. No joke, you really can. Or rather, I really could. I'm adding this one to my list of IVF/FET must haves.

  1. We have loved all the Dove body washes we've tried. We'll have to give this one a spin. How are you doing? No, I'm not totally stalking you at all, what do you mean?

  2. Umm, where did ya go?

  3. Hope all is well....things have been quiet around here.

  4. I hope the reason for your silence is just busy life and bad morning sickness. Would love to know how your little bean is doing.

  5. How do you do this? Seriously, you are the queen of paid reviews. Love it!

    How is everything going??

  6. Jus thought I would drop by and see how you were doing. Tried e-mailing you but got no response. Hope all is well with you and Mini Meier.

  7. I've been thinking about you a lot lately. Hope everything is going well!

  8. Lady,

    where are you? everything ok?

  9. Delurking here. I feel embarrased for blog stalking you- daily. Even more embarrased because it has been weeks since you last posted but I keep coming back hoping for a nice update. Emotionally I'm invested but understand why some women go dark when they get pregnant. Three rounds of IVF, one 8 week m/c and waiting a FET...we're still hoping to cross over to the other side. Anyhow, I just thought I'd delurk to let you know that I am holding good thoughts for you and hope that at some point you may give a final farwell post if this is the end of the blog. But if you don't, this delurker will still be thinking good thoughts for you and hope you get your take home baby with lots of wonderful family moments ahead.

  10. I haven't commented before, but reading along and so excited for you! Just checking in as I haven't seen a post in so long. Hope all is well!


  11. Thank you for your supportive comments for my fet! I really hope you come back to this space soon and let us know how you're doing. I check every day, and hope everything is okay with your pregnancy. Take care!


You know you want to tell me how ridiculous I am...
