257217257217B002TSA91QAYG2SBEV15LXVIAmNotAnAnimal131431276300800Good body wash - refreshing, but lackingI have sensitive skin that is prone to getting dry, particularly during the winter months and dry weather. I thought I would give this new line a try and it was alright. The scent is just right as it is not overpowering but definitely detectable, although I can understand some people being turned off by it.

The primary moisturizing ingredient in this body wash is the same as in many others - petrolatum. Those saying that this body wash does not moisturize enough - I would recommend letting the lather set on your body for at least a minute or two. Petrolatum is not an instantaneous moisturizer and needs some time to settle on the skin to do its job. Try aiming the water off of you as you lather and let it set for a couple of minutes. Even with this technique, however, this body wash just isn't as moisturizing as it says, especially in comparison to Dove 'Deep Moisture'.

Overall - I liked this body wash. I'm rather picky with my personal hygiene products and Dove For Men passes with an average score.
257218257218B002TSA91QA1A6C5KIOBMQ2PBen4451295136000Clean feeling and refreshingNormally I use Irish Spring soap but noticed recently that it has been drying my skin out during the winter months. The Dove Men Body and Face Wash works great so far, cleans especially good as a face wash. I like that its a combination body and face wash, for a guy its very convenient not having to use multiple products. I tried two of the three scents. The Clean Comfort has a clean and cool scent to it (Coolwater'ish). The Extra Fresh has a fresh lemon type of scent to it. I like both, clean out of the shower smell but not overpowering like the usual cheap drugstore stuff. Best face cleanser Ive used and will continue using, highly recommended.
257219257219B002TSA91QA2M8O6T2VWQB6Uthekingofchina3311300147200Dries out skin, causes heavy irritation, hard to undo its affectsThis product seemed very good at first and at first, i loved it. However, around 2 months after using it, i discovered i was always itching my outer thigh and the area directly behind my armpits (i was using the new dove deodorant also) was getting very dry (something very uncommon for me because my skin rarely dries out). After changing my body wash and deodorant (about 3 weeks later) my symptoms are beginning to leave. This product is very harmful to your skin and it doesn't manifest its negative consequences until it's too late. The dry skin is almost impossible to get rid of and even now (almost 2 months after i stopped using this product), my itchy skin is still evident. I went to my dermatologist and he said that the irritation was caused by the chemicals in this body wash and it could take a long time for the irritation to recede because of how long i was using the product. I would never recommend the men's product line to anyone (but "regular" dove products have always been a favourite of mine). Stick with the brands that have been around for a long time - Axe, old spice, etc
257220257220B002TSA91QA15P429IXO6US9April Kelly Woessner6811311292800NOT Unscented!This product says "unscented" all over it, but has a STRONG perfume smell - fragrance is listed as an ingredient. If you call, they will tell you that it is a "masking scent" - yes, I call that scented. I don't find it to be any milder than the regularly scented body washes.
257191257191B002TSA91QA2D6Q5FLVYC4CPB2451328918400UPDATED::it is the real deal now::::::UPDATED 9/8/2012:::::::: No longer fake solution being used. Real thick solution now::::::::Read below original comment.

The 3 pack of Dove for Men Liquid Soap was opened already and was far more liquidy then the store bought brand. Normally this soap is much thicker, but the soap available on Amazon seems to have a thinner viscosity(like someone added water to it). It's like someone took 1-2 bottles and added water to them to make them fit into 3 bottles. The 3 pack I received had Skotch clear tape holding the lids on and I believe if this wasn't on the thin formula that Amazon provides of this Soap would more than likely leak out if this wasn't done. This soap isn't cheap and the 3 pack sounds like a deal, but when you get it you'll realize why. By buying it on Amazon you save some money, but your getting screwed since the soap is not the original Dove for Men formula, but instead a much more watered down version of this soap. A real disappointment!

:::::UPDATE::: After running out of the water downed Dove for Men 3 pack I had, I decided to give Amazon one more try. Since a year has passed and the price is amazing, I figured I'd see if the solution was still a problem and I can gladly say it's now the real thing. The Dove for Men solution they are now using is the same thick solution you can find in stores. Thanks for fixing this Amazon.

257193257193B002TSA91QAK8LOFYRZJJW0C. Wollin2421266969600Don't care for the fragrance.Dove Men + Care Deep Clean Body Wash has a nice lather and feel to it and my skin felt clean and smooth after using it. However, a few minutes after drying off, my skin began to itch. I also didn't care much for the heavy fragrance which tends to last.
257194257194B002TSA91QA1NE8ICVPECIITDaniel B. Slocum "poetrydaze"2431266969600those little grainsI have to take away two stars simply for the "cleansing grains" that are an ingredient in this product. I don't mind the feel of these micro-grains on my body. But, this cleanser is a body AND face cleanser and personally I just don't like the feel of the grains on my face. Putting aside the issue of the grains, I really do like the product. It is a pretty luxurious detergent with obvious moisturizers that feel nice on the body. It has a very pleasant smell and rinses well. I feel very CLEAN after using this wash. I only wish they (and maybe they will) offered a "grain free" version of this cleanser. I would buy it. And if the little grains don't bother you then this is a top drawer product, for sure.
257195257195B002TSA91QA3JUCSM387M217michael_mus0111336003200Terrible stuff. Made to punish people for wanting to smell cool.I bought this body wash because the name seemed to imply that it was made for a man, so I figured: Dove knows.

Dove doesn't know.

I'm not usually one to label pick, but there is some really bad stuff in this soap and it destroyed my skin within 5 showers. I started breaking out like a teenager and my skin dried out from head to toe.

See: petrolatum

Just not feeling it, I give it 1 star only because that is the lowest rating.
257196257196B002TSA91QA37WYE02Q3T5C8Max Payne0111334102400Avoid Dove Men+Care Body Wash!I barely get acne on my body. It does happen on my face occasionally.

Guess what?
After using this Body Wash for a week, I started having acne all over my body.
Well, I did some research and the cause seems to be the petrolatum ingredient thats in this Body Wash. (All Dove Men+Care Body Wash products contain petrolatum.)

I strongly recommend sticking to Dove Men+Care soap. From my knowledge, those are petrolatum free.
If you are not a soap person, I recommend giving Irish Spring Moisture Blast a try. That's one of my favorites.
Gillette is also a good brand as well.

Once again, Dove Men+Care is only a good brand when it comes to soap.
257197257197B002TSA91QASY5ZANSH7NAWNilam Jadav0151326067200Nice product.I would surely recommend this product. It is a great product for men of any kind of skin.
I love this product.
257198257198B002TSA91QA3QV8UWLJIO8M1P. H. Chan0121303171200Dove Men +Care Body and Face BarMu husband uses this soap in the bathtub. It smells great and cleans well. But as the bathtub cleaner in the house I find that it leave alot of residue. At first I thought he spilled some foam in the tub and then I saw the soap. I use another brand and the tub was fine. Then again tonight he used the Dove soap again and it still left a large amount of residue. We have used Dove products for years and this soap is the only one that ever left the tub and sink like this. I don't think we'll use the soap again.
257199257199B002TSA91QA3BTL4FV6ODKATfredtownward "The Analytical Mind; Have Brain...0141275004800Manly But MildAs someone with sensitive, often too dry skin during the winter, I leaped at the chance to try this product. However, while I was pleased with it, I couldn't say it was any particular improvement over the Dove Cool Moisture Beauty Bar I was using before.

Note: Dove makes two additional varieties in addition to this Dove Men + Care Clean Comfort Body Wash: Dove Men + Care Extra Fresh Body Wash and Dove Men + Care Deep Clean Body Wash in what is assumed to be mildest to strongest order, and the other two varieties are also available in bar form: Dove Men + Care Extra Fresh Body and Face Bar and Dove Men + Care Deep Clean Body and Face Bar.

Your choice of body wash or bar will in part be determined by your weapon of choice. Dove Men + Care Active Clean Shower Tool users, Axe Detailer Shower Tool users, and users of Shower Poufs that haven't had a testosterone injection are limited to the body washes while Salux Japanese Beauty Skin Cloth users can use either body washes or bars.
257200257200B002TSA91QA1J1KO98HQ80YWJ. Benvignati0111267488000Dove Body WashTried it a few times now and not thrilled. A bit harsh, fragrance is on the strong side, doesn't lather well, grainy and too many chemicals for a soap. Skin had a rash look afterwards for awhile. Gillette is much better in my opinion, in every way. Would not purchase this on my own.
257201257201B002TSA91QA1DRM3JV6T5O6PW. Oliver0131267488000Nice fragrance, gentle body wash, questionable ingredientsSo far, I have mixed feelings about this product. I don't find that it is overly gritty as some other reviewers have stated. In fact, I've used it on my face a time or two and didn't think it was that harsh. The fragrance is nice but not something I would want to linger and fortunately it doesn't. It does leave you with a clean, refreshing feeling. The chemical ingredients are alarming and for that reason alone, I'm not sure if I would purchase it.
257202257202B002TSA91QAN81JUYW2SL24Charlie0151267401600Finally, a great body wash for menThe first thing I noticed was the fresh musky scent. It was refreshing but not overpowering. The viscosity of the body wash was thinner than what I'm used to, but it lathers up nicely even without using a scrubber. The microbeads aren't large enough to feel like sand in your eyes or be large enough to hurt your feet when you step on them. However, I still don't recommend getting any of the wash into your eyes as it will sting!

The wash was easy to use and it rinses off without leaving a greasy feeling, yet it does not leave a dry feeling either.

Pros: Easy to use, great scent that isn't overpowering, cleans very effectively

Cons: None

Overall: 5/5 stars
257203257203B002TSA91QA2I3XS9TO93Q0FMichael Meredith "e-Mike"0151267401600Great body wash!The most appealing aspect of Men+Care Clean Comfort Body Wash for me is that it manages to avoid the Old Spice/Brylcreme definitions for men's products without sliding down the metrosexual path. It has a very agreeable scent that I like, and one that met with compliments (or more importantly, a lack of "what is that..." type) comments from my lovely wife.

I've used body washes that produced more lather, however this one just might be the best moisturizing soap I've used. Perhaps there is something to the "micromoisture" technology, though I tend to look askance at newly coined phrases like that.

Cheapskate so and so that I am, I appreciate the design of the bottle. It's flat on the cap, so that you can always open it from the bottom without having to flail about to get those last few drops of soap. Also, you don't have to worry about it falling off the shelf mid-shower, because the bottle's center of gravity has been disrupted by turning it upside down.

Nice job Dove! I'll be using this for a long time to come.
257204257204B002TSA91QA1OMXVXXP07F05D. Couse "darkman1969"0151267142400A body wash you won't have to turn in your man card for.Soap is soap. At least that's what I thought. Frankly, I could care less about what soap I had used in the past. Bar, body wash, whatever was available, I'd use it. Maybe I'm in the minority here, but my biggest goal in the shower as a guy was to see how quickly I could get out. Speed is the name of the game in the shower for me...no 5, 10 or 15 minute showers. Get in and get out. Just like at the mall.

However, this body wash may have me extending my shower time. It smells good, not "nice" but good. Not manly per se, but not girly either. It lathers quickly and holds the suds.

Now for the kicker. I live in a dry climate and would always have to use lotion on my hands by the time I had gotten to work. I haven't had to use it since I've been using this body wash! Great news for me as I can kill two birds with one stone.

All in all, I really could care less about my shower routine and how I smell coming out. However, if this stuff keeps me from having to use lotion on my hands afterwards, then that just might make me keep on using it.

And I can keep my man card in my wallet for now.
257205257205B002TSA91QA3KF79AODCE7YEJ. Oh "aletheia67"0131267056000I am not sure whether men need this...I am not sure whether many men would use "Dove + Men Care Clean Comfort Body Wash." At least for me (a middle aged & married man), I am used to just washing my body with a bar of soap. Sure, sometime, it does dry up my skin, but after the shower, I do at times put on a lotion to soothe dry skin. As for this product:

1. While the product promises, "(its) micromoisture technology to fight skin dryness," I have not seen any difference between using a bar of Dove soap or even Lever 2000. Even after using Dove's Men Care, I still needed to put on some of lotion to soothe my skin.
2. The scent of the item is somewhat like aftershave smell. Some men might like it, others may not. However, the scent is not too strong, but mild.
3. I do not know how clean it cleanses my body. I really can't tell the difference.

Overall, I am not sure whether it is better than simple bar of soap.
257206257206B002TSA91QA1J75JJ0Q2OEJNRaven A. Wind0141266969600It's soap... For men!In recent years, there's been a boom in the "for men" category of personal hygiene products. I guess the companies figured we guys were sick of seeing women get special soaps, shampoos, razors, deodorants and skin treatments, and sought to narrow the gap by giving us men something to claim for our own. Give it another decade and there may not be any unisex products in the personal care aisles anymore!

And what's to review here? Soap. Fine, fine, fine-- Call it "Body Wash" if you want, but that's just the long-hand for "soap". Some marketing wizard decided to differentiate soap for your hands from soap meant for the rest of your body (but not your hair) as a means to get us to buy the same product twice. For the record, this soap works on your hands just as well as it works on your butt.

It smells nice, like a typical men's deodorant or low-cost cologne. No fruity sweetness here! We're MEN (grunt!) If we can't smell like grease and dirt, then we like to smell like chemicals, not flowers or fruit! So this gets a good grade in the olfactory category.

It gets me clean. Dirt was there, and now it's gone. My butt has never been shinier (except for that incident with the oil and the floor buffer). It makes me feel clean too, so I know it's not a mere illusion. LO, I AM NOW APPROACHABLE!

Supposedly this soap has long-term effects on my skin, and makes my epidermis more healthy because there are little exfoliating beads in the soap. I'm not sure I can verify that, because I haven't run a long-term test course, but I'll take their word for it. After all, being clean has health benefits in and of itself.

There's really no reason to complain about this product. It's a good soap. It comes in a nice squeeze bottle that makes it easy to lather up. It doesn't smell like wet dog or old spinach. It makes me cleaner than I would be if I didn't use soap, and it even works on my hands (despite the conspiracy to get me to buy separate hand soap!) so what else do you want in a soap? Tyler Durden-style lipo fats? A keen chemical burn? You won't get that here!

But you will get clean, and you might get some action if you no longer smell like a soiled goat covered in Cheetos dust. That makes it SO worth it.
257207257207B002TSA91QA247525Q1RAY4GFred V. Peterson0151266796800Stains wash cloth, only first bottleI bought the one with granuals in store and liked it. I ordered the three w/o granuals and it ruined my wash cloth with blue stains. Won't wash out in laundry either. In using the next bottle, product was great. Same type and brand wash cloth. Guess it was just that one bottle, too much blue in bottle. Will order again.
257208257208B002TSA91QA3BMK3DZDH0N6QPavahotti3621267056000We Men are not as strong as we like to pretendI'm a man. As a man, I lead people to believe that I don't mind pain. A few exfoliating micro-globules? Bring 'em on!

Yet, in reality, it's all a ruse. I don't like pain! My skin is as delicate as the petal of a calla lily, and I like my body wash to roll gently off me like morning dew. In contrast, this Dove Men body wash is less like morning dew, and more like shrapnel from an IED.

Look, I know we Men CLAIM to be manly and strong. But we don't much like bathing with shrapnel. Exfoliating beads? We'll leave that to you ladies.

GRADE: 1.5 MAN POINTS
257209257209B002TSA91QA36O3YPQZXKU6DJohn Beckham "John W Beckham"1311345161600Exploding SoapThis product looked like an explosion: one had opened and drained half out. It was a mess. Both bottles were covered and I could do little other than run them to the sink to make sense of the slimy package.
AND THEY WANT ME SHIP THIS BACK FOR A REFUND? the first question is there any 'liquid' in there, what do I say, "god yes, all over the place?" I guess TARGET is the better choice for somethings.
257210257210B002TSA91QA4VMQ6ZTSXSSLkiwanissandy "Go Bucks!"1311268179200Made us itch...then break out. Pass on this one.I liked the fragrance, seemed to rinse off the skin, and even liked the micro beads; however, after using it my teenage son started itching and then had acne breakouts. I itched as well but no acne. Probably will not use again...whatever chemicals are in this body wash we're having an allergic reaction too. We don't normally have sensitive skin so that makes me think this product isn't safe for normal users. I wouldn't recommend.
257211257211B002TSA91QA1EXM5J5V7I27HYasmin Coleman0231305763200Something For My HusbandMy husband uses Dove body wash products regularly so I ordered this product for him to sample. He thought it was a fair/good product --lathered well, smelled good, overall good feeling. However, he wasn't impressed by it enough to want to spend two or three times as much for this item as compared to other similar items on the market. Additionally the product's grainyness while fine for the body wasn't a good idea on the face...especially if one shaved before or after using. Overall a nice product but not necessarily one that he has to have or purchase.
257212257212B002TSA91QA33E2HGUMUSWL1M. Munoz0231304899200Dove Men care washSmell good, nice texture, but i am a little disappointment because one of the ingredients are PETROLATUM. Why Dove use that ingredient?
257213257213B002TSA91QA3Q9HY0LU7MN6EN. Cousino "Jorja's Mama"0231267056000Could be betterThe smell is nice but a bit strong and lingers a little too long for my liking, and the exfoliating 'grains' are a nice feature but can be a bit harsh if you use this on a daily basis. It lathered nicely though and I did feel nice and clean when I rinsed, although not necessarily overly moisturized.

Now if I can just convince my husband to give it a try. =)
257214257214B002TSA91QA1QQDHM5YMLQ8ZJoseph Albanese "The Joe Show"0251266969600GreatThe product does just what it claims: leaves you clean and nourishes your skin (a boon, especially in winter). Another plus: no filmy feeling left. I don't know how Dove did it but it cleans you and rinses clear the way all body washes should.
257215257215B002TSA91QA3FON4I2FXE0NQDebashish Mitra2611283817600Clog Your Pores, Stay Dirty, Feel StaleThis is the worst body wash I have ever used and I have used a few (from most regular mass market products like Axe, Old Spice to designer brands like Armani, Dunhill). The things that I expect from a bodywash/shower gel are:

1) It should clean you very well and leave you feeling fresh (BUT while doing so it should not dry your skin). In the long run it should be good for the skin.

2) It should not have any ingredient which is harmful for the skin. Specifically I avoid the following like plague: Petrolatum, Parben, Mineral Oil (apart from these, I also try to avoid SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate/ Sodium Laureth Sulfate) but it is hard to find a body wash or shower gel without SLS - its pervasive).

3) Have a good soothing or invigorating fragrance (while not being so strong as to cause a headache)

Before beginning this review let me tell you why I avoid the ingredients Petrolatum, Parben and Mineral Oil - all these ingredients, in the name of 'moisturizing your skin by locking in vital moisture' actually form a sheath on top of your skin and clog its pores. This is extremely unhealthy for the skin since skin, for being healthy, needs to be able to breathe freely for expelling impurities out of the system. The implication of using products (body washes, shower gels) with these ingredients is that you do not feel as fresh after the shower (compared to products without these ingredients) since your skin pores are clogged and suffocated. Though I noticed that this Dove Men + Care Clean Comfort Body Wash contained Petrolatum (and SLS), I wanted to give it a try since I hold in high regard Unilever in general for their well engineered products and the Dove brand in particular for their moisturizing bar soap which is one of the best soaps for skin and is a fantastic product.

However I was shocked when I used this. It is the worst of all worlds - This body wash almost does not clean you at all but leaves such a heavy residue on your skin that you will feel horrible - as if you did not have a shower at all. And dare you use this when you are a little more unclean than usual - when you come out of the shower you will wonder whether you had a shower at all. There is absolutely NO feeling of freshness OR cleanliness that you expect from a shower. Now some might argue that usually 'moisturizing' body washes are intended more to moisturize than to leave you feeling squeaky clean - well I'm not talking of anything even close to squeaky clean here - when you have a bath (even if it were with the world's most moisturizing soap/body wash) you expect to feel a minimal level of freshness (otherwise there is no point of a bath - you might as well smother yourself with moisturizing lotion instead).

Ok - so this does a horrible job of cleaning. So what about its claims of moisturizing ? The only thing this body wash does is clog your pores and leave your skin feeling suffocated - not supple and well cared for. So if you have an oily skin or if you are a little stale from perspiration and get into the shower with this, you will feel horrible since this will 1) not clean you in any way 2) lock in the dirt that you had before the shower - can you imagine how bad that can feel ? I wonder whether this product was well tested on actual people (which is a basic requirement and the norm with any cosmetic manufacturer of credibility/repute) before being rolled out.

As for the fragrance, its just OK. Nothing that you would look forward to.

I'm thoroughly disappointed with Unilever for releasing such a badly engineered and tested product. This is extremely uncharacteristic of this very good FMCG company. I threw this in the bin after using it thrice (I was disgusted after the very first use but wanted to give this a chance just in case the first day was a 'bad bath day' - but alas the bad was not in the day - it was in the gel).

Well this review was a passionate one and so could come across to some as bordering on the weird - for after all its a body wash isn't it ? Your life does not depend on it. But well, I am very particular about the decisions I make for my health, grooming and well being. This product was so horrible that it disgusted me to the extent necessary to elicit such strong feelings of dislike and disapproval. However, as I always suggest, do not take my word for it - try this yourself (if you want) with an open mind but at the same time being conscious of what to test/look for after reading this review - because after all you are the best judge of what suits you and what is good for you. Also, I strongly suggest that you try to find a cleaning product without SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate/ Sodium Laureth Sulfate), since SLS penetrates the skin and even the internal organs easily and can cause havoc like endocrinological imbalances, neurological disorders, organ toxicity and cancer on long term use.
