Dove Gentle Exfoliating Facial Cleanser

With the weather getting colder and colder every day, my skin has been getting more flaky and dry so I have been looking for a product to give my skin a gentle exfoliation without drying it out. So there I was walking through my local Priceline store a few weeks ago and found this fantastic gentle exfoliating cleanser by Dove.

On the packaging it says that it has "soft exfoliating beads that dissolve as the cleanser lathers to gently polish away dull, lifeless skin; leaving skin healthy and radiant. The formula contains Dove’s moisturising lotion to hydrate, nourish, and pamper the skin as it cleanses". After reading this description I was sold and given that it cost around $7.00 I thought it was a pretty good deal. 
As you guys know, I have sensitive skin so I have always been a bit scared of exfoliating products because they are usually too harsh and leave my skin sore and dry. Lucky for me, this product is different. It contains light exfoliating beads which don't bruise your skin but instead leave it with a fresh clean feeling. Although I must say that if you are used to having rougher exfoliating beads in your cleansers then you will find this product to be too gentle.

This face wash has a lovely light consistency and a soft fragrance similar to Dove soap products.

This product lathers beautifully and you don't really need too much of it in order to get the results you are looking for. As a result, the 110g bottle will last a good while making this product great value for money.

Overall, I have enjoyed having this product in my weekly skin care routine. I find that the exfoliating beads are gentle enough not to cause any problems with my sensitive skin and also don't dry it out. I love the fresh clean feeling I get after using this product and I feel that it makes my moisturiser absorb so much better.

What is your favorite cleanser at the moment?
