Dove DermaSeries Review

In April Dove introduced a new line of skincare specifically formulated for severely dry and sensitive skin. Dove DermaSeries is a full-range line of skincare that was developed in partnership with dermatologists, such as Dr.Ranella Hirsch, to help bring both immediate relief and skin repair.

The Dove DermaSeries collection includes ultra mild cleansers for face and body, body cream and an intense repair treatment. Since The Makeup Examiner suffers from severely dry skin, TME was pretty excited to try this line, most especially with the warmer weather and skin-baring clothes just around the corner. The Dove DermaSeries includes five specific products designed to be used together for maximum results and relief.

The Dove DermaSeries skincare regimen begins with “The Cleansers”:

Dove DermaSeries Ultra Caring Gentle Cleansing Bar – This intensely moisturizing bar is infused with skin-natural lipids and is specially formulated to provide ultra-mild cleansing for extremely dry, irritated skin while effectively removing oil, dirt and makeup without leaving skin tight or dry. The Makeup Examiner despises soap due to the fact that I can’t stand the feeling of residue, but I can happily report that the Ultra Caring GentleCleansing Bar ($7.99) doesn’t have this issue and is so gentle and effective.

Dove DermaSeries Ultra Caring Gentle Body Cleanser - Specially formulated to provide ultra-mild cleansing for extreme dry, delicate and irritated skin, this body cleanser is infused with glycinate (extremely mild cleanser with rich lather), hydrating glycerin and skin-natural lipids to gently cleanse while replenishing skin’s natural moisture barrier. Ultra CaringGentle Body Cleanser ($15.99) is a must-have for anyone with skin issues. It leaves the skin truly hydrated for which I noticed immediately and after having used the Body Cleanser for several weeks, I may jut have found a year-round solution.

Dove DermaSeries Ultra Caring Gentle Cream Face Cleanser - A non-foaming, cream facial cleanser enriched with skin-natural lipids; specially formulated to provide ultra-mild cleansing for even the most delicate of dry skin. Ultra Caring Gentle Cream Face Cleanser ($15.99) is an effective facial cleanser -- even removing waterproof makeup -- that left my skin thoroughly cleansed and hydrated.

Step Two for the Dove DermaSeries skincare regimen is “The Moisturizers”:

Dove DermaSeries Intense Repairing Body Cream - Contains the PPAR Activation Complex, which replenishes lipids and creates a better quality hydration barrier. This rich cream provides immediate relief of dryness symptoms while repairing dry and damaged skin overtime. Intense Repairing BodyCream ($17.99) is my favorite product in the DermaSeries line. With quick absorption and no greasy feel, Intense Repairing Body Cream offered me instant hydration and I can see a marked difference in the look of my skin.

Dove DermaSeries Intense Repairing Rough Patch Treatment – Also containing the PPAR Activation Complex and a blend of natural oils to repair and protect severely dry skin, this emollient rich balm is meant to be used as a spot treatment to soften thick, rough patches of skin on areas such as elbows, knees, heels and hands. TME brought in a housemate, who has eczema, to test this particular product. What she had to say about Intense RepairingRough Patch Treatment ($18.99), “It’s a thick ointment formula that takes a few minutes to absorb. But it did bring instant relief upon application and after less then a week of use, the red and dry patch of skin seemed to be healed”.

The entire Dove DermaSeries collection is effective and TME would recommend these products for anyone who suffers from severely dry, sensitive or eczematous skin. We found DermaSeries to be of better quality than other OTC products designed for the previously mentioned skin issues and far more convenient then prescription creams. The Dove DermaSeries Collection can be found at Dove and select retailers partners nationwide.
