      Sadly didn't work for me:(

      This is somewhat a staple classic on the drugs store shelves up and down the country. Although many new and better lip care products have come onto the market this seems to stand the test of time and be on everyone's wishlist alongside CARMEX.

      For me, I am not in the majority with loving this product and neither CARMEX.

      I don't have any specific issues, I just would like no chapped lips in winter, no burnt ones in summer and a nourished pair of lips all year round! Not a lot then!

      I love NIVEA's range except their lip care, it sadly doesn't work for me.

      This contains:
      PRO VITAMIN B5
      JOJOBA OIL
      VITAMIN E

      So essentially this should provide everything and tick all the boxes. However personally, I found this to be difficult to easily apply in the sense you need to warm this up but working it into your lips.
      The results at first, despite exfoliation, the product of gel or whatever the stick is called :) became flaky. I brought a second thinking this was a dud product but it wasn't, too much of this and the product for me was sticky. It sat to heavy on my lips and didn't sink in quick enough, because this was over the winter months with chapped lips I didn't feel any soothing sensation or relief.

      I applied a generous amount at night but in the morning the ruddy stuff was still sitting on my lips and haven't sunk in.
      I personally wouldn't recommend this.

      Sadly didn't undo the damage.

      A few years back I had short hair and due to damaging it through heating, over styling and dying it continuously, a number of products were suggested to help restore the condition of my hair as I grew it out, it is now shoulder length [thought I'd let you know:)]

      The products recommended by stylist in a salon can sometimes break the bank and DOVE is a great reasonably priced product with just the most amazing results. However, I find that they have yet to reach that amazing standards with hair care, but that's just a personal opinion and mainly because I have thick hair I think they've yet to crack that particular market.

      Yet I will always persist because I love buying DOVE and hoped that this brand with the 'SERUM' complex I hoped this could undo the damage.
      It firstly smelt just like a traditional DOVE product and the thick consistency of the cream was still there. I worked this into my scalp, I wasn't expecting it to lift the roots or remove product build-up in a major way, as stated in various other reviews I find that you need EUCALYPTUS based products for that.

      This cleansed the hair, made it look shiny and soft as you would expected however the 'INTENSE damage therapy' sadly didn't work for me. Maybe the salon professionals were right! My hair just needed that TLC that DOVE couldn't provide on this occasion.
      This seems to be a little more pricey at £4.99 but it depends on where you purchase, so its best to shop around. x

      Not bad but not great for thick hair:(

      As part of the PRO AGE range, this focuses on the hair, obviously rather than the body.
      There has been a lot of talk about reducing the features of age [ as always] and there are some recommendations that hair and the look can contribute towards you reflecting that in your hair care ie your hair is now an aging sign!

      This you would assume due to the name 'PRO AGE' would be aimed at helping that but instead this aims to help make your hair appear fuller, healthier and revitalised, maybe they are the aspects that age you backwards? Who knows?

      For me, I picked this up due to the way I feel quite positive about the results on my skin care and thought this would be worth a try.
      I have thick hair and this really didn't help that, this is solely my fault.
      I clearly didn't read this in-store and went along with the branding instead.

      On my second attempt, as not to waste this product, I tried a smaller amount of the shampoo but still this made me hair thicker, fuller and more unmanageable.
      On the upside, this would be a good product for anyone wanting to create that look, on the downside is as stated above.

      Overall this is good, it didn't cleanse the scalp in a big way and therefore you know the product build up hasn't been touched. I always think you need a EUCALYPTUS based product to get that.

      This as always from this gorgeous range is reasonably priced on average £2.99 x

      An okay product from a fabulous brand

      DOVE is the go to brand for deep, intense, moisture and is excellent quality at a great price for the skin especially long term this can hydrate and moisture better than anything else.

      However, just sometimes the new products that are released every now and then I do find myself becoming suspicious at what improvements can be made on perfection, or alternatives they can offer.
      This is a more lighter and refreshing cream compared to the others, surprisingly so.
      With all DOVE products of creams, the consistency is usually thick but this is very light in comparison.
      Although light on the skin, this stills smells fabulous and that DOVE scent. It sinks into the skin quite fast almost too fast as the cream is more watery but after it has sunk in it makes your skin feel fresher.
      I decided to keep using this over the summer months especially as I found it to be cooling on the skin and you could genuinely feel a freshness on the skin, not the heavy cream sensation that could become sticky.

      Why only three hearts then?
      When I stopped using this, I didn't miss it at all. It didn't quite make that impression that I needed to have this all the time. Also, there are there are other products that have added benefits in the summer that I'd prefer to use.

      Although I highly recommend the DOVE range like many others, this is a product that maybe doesn't add anything to an already sterling range.

      The price for this is very reasonable at £2.99 for 100ml.

      a luxury and classic fragrance

      Mу husbаnd got this for me while killing time in а dutу free shop аt the аirport. I tried it right аwау, since I hаd not used аnу frаgrаnce thаt dау аnd so it wouldn't be competing with аnother scent.

      I wаnt to like it, but I cаn't bring mуself to trу it аgаin. I certаinlу would not weаr it to work while still in the "deciding" stаge, so it will hаve to be а weekend project.

      It's аn iconic luxurу frаgrаnce with а long historу, which mаkes me feel like I should like it. However, if I tried it аs а blind test there is no wау I would ever entertаin purchаsing or аsking for this frаgrаnce аs it stаnds now.

      I know it is expensive, аnd it is verу clever pаckаging: 3 20 ml EDT sprау bottles thаt fit into а sleek аnd chic blаck "lаcquer" аnd gold cаse thаt looks like аn oversize lipstick--уou twist the top counterclockwise аnd the аtomizer pops up--twist it clockwise аnd the аtomizer recedes bаck into the cаse.

      3 20 ml bottles is just over 2 oz of frаgrаnce--even if I use this everу dау it will tаke mаnу months to use up аnd I аm reаllу trуing to hаve onlу 2 or 3 frаgrаnces аt а time thаt I use up before getting а replаcement or something completelу different.

      I will edit аfter I decide уау or nау, but I think I аm sаdlу leаning towаrd nау on this.I should recommend it to you.

      • "skin felt dry after some hours"

      I would recommend it to anyone.

      I purchased this product a years ago and Dove Silk Glow is by far my favorite body wash EVER!!! The smell is lovely, it lathers up in a really creamy load of bubbles and it gives my skin a glow to be proud of as well as making it very soft.

      It smells great!! Best so far. Gives a real soft feeling after using some sensitive skin people may refuse it but I would recommend it to my friend cause everyone's skin is not same. oo and also you have to keep in mind that it's expensive compared to other products in the market.

      It keeps your skin moisturized for 3 to four hours in a winter season and six hours in a hot/summer season.

      A tonic for the skin. x

      I originally bought this with the 'PRO-AGE' in mind thinking it was a product that maybe I could use it to prevent and protect my skin now in my early thirties.

      When buying this I thought that I would stick long term, up to six months, to see if there were any really change or added benefits to the skin.

      This contains:
      AHA [anti-age lotion in creams- and highly recommended by professionals]
      VITAMIN B3
      SKIN LIPIDS [to draw the product deep into your skin to work deeper in the skin and produce better results and renew the skin.]

      This is different from their other creams due to the AHA this is a deep complex approach to the layers in your skin and anyone can use this at any age.

      This aims to help you see a difference within two weeks, alongside the shower cream I used this but personally I didn't see a big difference and to be honest I wasn't expecting to simply because I am using this as a preventative care treatment for skin.
      I have sensitive skin and find that DOVE is great and comforting to the skin [I've recently found that SANTUCARY causes my skin to react]
      With essential oils within this and a richer cream that I give more time to sink in over the course of the six months I found this helped the softness of my skin but didn't see any other difference but the quality is so good and the scent that I would recommend this but more on a regular basis than the two weeks they suggest.

      I just love this product !!

      Some days ago I and my boyfriend was out for shopping and that time I see this product. One thing of this product is it is available in the market. Makes your underarm really smooth, silky feeling.

      I purchased a large size of this and it last for two months. I have moved on to other products cause I don't stick in one product specially for deo.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Sometimes, the original is best x

      This is a the original and probably the best formula that DOVE does.

      This contains not one but three moisturisers for your body that lasts a long time into the day.

      They call it NUTRIUM moisture that uses LIPIDS, which means it absorbs into your skin much more quickly and with more effect.

      This smells clean, fresh and refreshing all day along. I could smell this throughout the day rushing around as it releases the fragrance.

      The effect works amazing of the LIPIDS and personally I feel such a difference when using this in the shower.
      I always allow this extra time to sink into my skin concentrating more on any dry skin as this is deeply nourishing and restorative to the skin.

      This liquid is quite thick and the consistency is very god quality. You will only need a small amount as it lathers up very well I think you can improve on this a little by using the body cream to work into damp skin and allow to sink in.
      Washing this off you may notice a slight difference as your skin made seem oilier with the moisturiser and there's a tendency to rinse it off more thoroughly, however try not to as you may prevent the benefits of the results.

      Overall, using this long term will improve the texture of your skin, the softness, my skin felt incredibly nourished and moisturised.
      I really couldn't recommend this product highly enough.

      The prices vary from stores. I found that SUPERDRUG or BOOTS do very competitive prices, but you can buy bulk buys online that may outdo that.
      Roughly the price for 100ml is £2.99, depending on where you buy x

      amazing moisturize ,basic but great for sensitive skin

      Purchаsed this becаuse I wаs looking for the most bаsic moisturize I could find. I hаve prettу sensitive skin so it's hаrd to trу new fаce products out without breаking out, turning red, etc. This moisturize doesn't seem to cаuse аnу of thаt. Аnd, it does аn АMАZING job аt moisturizing mу skin аnd getting rid of peeling/flаkу skin. I use it primаrilу becаuse of recurring аcne breаkouts thаt I use benzoуl peroxide to mаnаge, which often results in red/peeling skin. However, а few things to note аbout it:

      (1) You do NOT need а lаrge аmount, аt аll, to cover уour fаce. I literаllу skim mу index finger аcross the creаm to pick up а verу thin lауer аnd аpplу thаt to one cheek, аnd repeаt for the other cheek, foreheаd, аnd chin/nose/lip аreа. I mаde the mistаke of using а lot more when I first got it, аnd it left mу fаce shinу/smelling the rest of the morning.

      (2) It is lаbeled аs "frаgrаnce free" but it DOES SMELL! I believe the "frаgrаnce free" lаbel meаns thаt theу do not АDD аnу аdditionаl frаgrаnces to the product, but there is some sort of "nаturаl" smell to the product itself. In fаct, one of the first few times I used it I аpplied wау more thаn I needed to without reаlizing it, аnd lаter thаt morning I wаs mаking а deposit аt the bаnk аnd the teller commented on "how nice I smell" which wаs slightlу embаrrаssing cаuse I'm а guу. I hаd NO deodorаnt/cologne on thаt morning, аll I hаd used wаs the moisturizer, аnd I could аctuаllу smell it а bit mуself. It wаsn't а big deаl аnd it wаs becаuse I used more thаn I needed to, but just а heаds-up to people thinking theу аre getting а product with no scent to it, becаuse it DOES smell.

      (3) I've since gone to ONLY using it аt night, before bed. Even using а verу minimаl аmount, there cаn be some "shinуness" left on mу fаce for аt leаst а few hours аfterwаrds. I'd just rаther not hаve а shinу fаce when I'm heаding out for the dау, so I onlу use it before going to bed now. It works out well becаuse I wаke up in the morning with 0 drуness/peeling on mу fаce, аnd thаt generаllу lаsts аll dау until I аpplу it аgаin thаt night.

      And, (1) уou do NOT need to use а lot to get greаt results (2) there аre no аdded frаgrаnces, but the product DOES smell (3) i suggest using it onlу аt night before bed, becаuse it mау leаve уour skin а but shinу/oilу feeling.

      Advantages

      • " firm stools"
      • "Gives healthy"
      • "Well trusted brand"
      • "Has a pleasant texture for the puppy"
      • "Full of accurate nutrients"
      • "Promotes the best start in life"

      Disadvantages

      The key to giving your puppy the best possible start in life!

      I enjoy fond memories of this specialised puppy food as it was the first feed I began giving my Yorkshire Terrier on as a puppy, and I like to think that with this food we gave her the best possible start to life with us. I had given all my previous dogs including my current Golden Retriever James Wellbeloved and was already well acquainted with the brand name and had complete trust and confidence in it. Being new to this specific product I was impressed with the information I had access to regarding it's contents and nutrition.

      It can be bought online for £30+ but is completely worth this.

      James Wellbeloved Puppy Lamb and Rice is a dry food of which is formulated carefully so it is hypoallergenic. It contains specially selected lamb for protein and rice and barley for a great source of carbohydrates. The entire recipe is full of good vitamins and minerals and contains no artifical colours, additives or preservatives.

      It contains an added yucca extract to promote healthy stools, of which can be an issue with puppies if they are fed incorrectly and don't achieve sufficient fibre and carbohydrates. There is a blend of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids to promote a healthy, shiny coat, and a natural prebiotic is also included to encourage beneficial bacteria within the gut.

      My dog was a little cautious of it at first, having been accustomed to another feed previously but she soon became confident enough after a few bites of the cubes, of which were perfectly sized for her mouth. As she was so little, two or three mouthfuls around four times a day was enough to fill her up but she was contented with it and this showed in her playful nature and willingness to run madly around on the livingroom carpet!!

      I thought the feed looked a little dry at first though as she was only a puppy so added some hot water beforehand to make it slightly easier to eat. She was appreciative of it but now eats her food solid, two years on.

      I kept her on this feed until she was about 6 months old and then switched to a more general one. She had a very stable health condition whilst eating this though and I was pleased that she never had poor stools as I have experienced this with a few of my dogs if they came to me from a bad diet.

      I love this particular food and the particular brand due to the health content. It's more important than people realise to ensure your dog is getting healthy food with the most beneficial nutrients and to also combine this with quantity and taste.

      I would recommend this to anyone with a puppy who is willing to go the extra mile in price - it's definitely worth it!

      Advantages

      • "More pouches included than normal food"
      • "Pleasant smell"
      • "Not too much excessive juice or jelly"
      • "Pouches left my cats feeling full for longer"
      • "Full of healthy meaty ingredients"

      Disadvantages

      My cats have chosen a new favourite meal!

      I usually feed my younger cats James Beloved food pouches but I was forced to try Gourmet pouches a few days ago when the supermarket had run out of my usual kind. They're never too fussy with what they eat - being cats - but I thought they really enjoyed this food! I generally stick to what they know but in future I might alternate between this and their usual food just for some variety now that I know they're open to change.

      I bought sixteen 85g fillets for £8 and while this is slightly more expensive than their usual food I thought it was actually a fair price and better value for four more pouches. It can be purchased online for less though!

      The quality of Gourmet cat food was certainly relevant to the name - I thought the food looked better prepared than most human meals! The ingredient list was extensive and nutritious, varying between pouches, featuring tender chicken, juicy beef, rabbit, trout and spinach to beef and carrots. I liked how pouches alternated between flavours, as it gave me a chance to see which meat my cats really prefer. Each recipe contained vegetables though, making it healthy and variable for the cat.

      Upon opening the pouches I was pleasantly surprised at how much good content they contained: there was no watery juice filling up three quarters of the pack, and no thick chunky jelly either. There was gravy but this was high quality and there was much more meat and vegetables than this. Each pouch was quite full and had a significantly pleasant smell! My cats seemed puzzled at first but wolfed it down quickly and seemed more than contented afterwards.

      Pouch size did concern me at first as I bought the fillets in a box and couldn't see how full they were in comparison to their other feed, but sizes were similar and I personally thought this kind left them fuller for longer also.

      I was pleasantly surprised by their reactions a few hours after eating this meal, as they seemed content and full of good health. My youngest cat has a history of having quite a sensitive stomach which can quickly become ill if she eats something new or overly rich but she was fine and produced firm, healthy stools.

      My cats still adore their James Beloved pouches though, but I think I'll start incorporating this with their feeding routine also, alternating between brands and flavours. They really enjoyed it and I was so impressed at the quality - this really is 'gourmet' cat food!

      I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone in search of quality cat food.

      Advantages

      • "Trusted brand and excellent product"
      • "Promotes a hypoallergenic lifestyle"
      • "Meat is healthy and not dominated by jelly"
      • " delicious extracts"
      • "Food is very appealing for cats"
      • "Specialised recipe suits every kind of cat!"

      Disadvantages

      The right way to take care of elderly cats!

      I have always fed my cats James Wellbeloved and will continue to do so with them as they all reach their senior years. It's always been a brand of food I've had confidence in for quality and nutritional content, and I find their senior mix to be very well specialised to suit every type of cat which could possibly come across it.

      The 'senior mix' is ideal for cats age 7 and over, and mostly comes as a pack of 12 pouches for around £7.95.

      It contains a tasty recipe made from a list of natural ingredients which my cat seems to LOVE, as it's something different than usual with the cranberry and yucca extracts. The single meat source (turkey) is an excellent source of protein for the cat and made without cereals, with no beef or pork, no wheat or wheat gluten, no dairy products or egg. It avoids some of the ingredients which most commonly cause intolerances and is hypoallergenic for this reason.

      I think the ingredient information is a good indicator of the quality of James Beloved cat food as it really shows how much thought and consideration as well as endless preparation goes into the production of these recipes!

      I like that this food is a lot more pleasant smelling also, and not as strongly dominated with jelly and sauce, although he does enjoy licking up the sauce and eating the meat afterwards.

      I feed my cat two of these pouches everyday as he is smaller than most cats and find he always comes running as soon as he hears the pouch opening, and has the food hoovered up in 10 seconds. He enjoyed his other James Wellbeloved food before but as he is now 10 and also arthritic with IBD, this one is much more suitable. He began to drop weight quite rapidly a few months before we switched to this and I'm pleased to say he regained it all and is looking happier than ever! His coat has been looking a lot shinier and I have also found his stools have been more firmer and healthy looking. He adores the lamb version of this feed also and often enjoys both mixed together for a treat!

      My only complaint is the size of the pouches - 85g is quite minimal. He does only require 2 daily as he is small but larger pouches would be better, or more pouches sold as pack.

      I really enjoy feeding my cat the James Wellbeloved Turkey Senior Pouches though, and will switch my other cats onto it also when I feel they're ready!
