If you're seeking undeniable testament to a product's quality, two primary factors ought to be considered: the reviews (of course!) and the frequency with which said product is purchased. Dove Beauty Bars ($5 for four) — which come in lots of different scents and infusions — have passed the test on both. Not only do the bars consistently earn a bounty of five-star ratings no matter what site you're shopping on, but the bar is also so beloved that it's estimated 60 are sold every single second.
Let's do some maths here. That means that 86,400 Dove Beauty Bars are sold each day, which equates to 604,800 every week. And if you were to place the Beauty Bars produced by Dove every year end to end, they would wrap around the globe 4.5 times. That is a lot of sudsy goodness.
Here's the thing about the Dove Beauty Bar . . . notice how the brand doesn't call it soap? Dove does that on purpose. That's because it's formulated differently than your traditional soap. The bar has a milky, creamy consistency, uses a milder cleansing agent, and is infused with a host of ultrahydrating ingredients, including natural skin lipids and moisturising cream.
It comes in basically a bajillion scents, too, so you can switch things up whenever you want. Our favourites are the Core Beauty Bars in Rose and Anti-Stress Micellar Water, and who can say no to the Purely Pampering Beauty Bars in Coconut Milk with Jasmine Petals and Sweet Cream with Peony?
