Dove Go Fresh Face wash with Orange oil Review



I almost walked past this since I assumed that Dove made products only for those with dry skin. Then the words “oily skin care” caught my attention. I picked it up and re-read it just to make sure. Sure enough, I’d seen the truth! I didn’t think twice and grabbed it and added it to my shopping cart. 🙂

Dove Go Fresh Face Wash With Orange Oil Review
Splash face with water and apply face wash on face and neck. Rinse off. Pat dry. If face wash gets into your eyes, rinse well with water.

It comes in a slim, flat, white tube (size is similar to Ponds face washes), with the trademark Dove logo covering a major portion of the front. The lid is a pale orange, translucent, plastic, flip-top cap that closes nice and tight. Overall, the packaging is simple yet attractive and very travel- friendly.
The face wash is pearly white in color. The consistency is somewhere between and a gel and a cream. It lathers well and rinses off without any residue. It removes all traces of oil and dirt and leaves skin almost powdery matte. It does control oil for upto 3 to 4 hours (depending on the weather). Inspite of the matte-effect, there was no dry or stretchy feeling. It didn’t make my skin flaky even in winter. So this is great to use all year round. The fragrance is a very sweet orange scent. It’s refreshing yet mild and won’t irritate sensitive noses.

Dove Go Fresh Face Wash
What I like about Dove oily skin care face wash:

  • Simple, attractive, hygienic packaging
  • Leak-proof cap and travel-friendly size
  • Removes all traces of grease
  • Leaves skin powdery-matte without drying it out
  • Did not break me out (in fact, my breakouts reduced considerably while using this)
  • Consistency is easy to work with
  • Can be used all year round
  • Refreshing yet mild sweet orange fragrance
  • Lathers well
  • No parabens or sulphates


What I don’t like about Dove oily skin care face wash:
There’s nothing that I dislike about this product 😀


Will I recommend this?
Yes! This is a great product for those with oily (and even combination) skin. Plus it’s hard to find a face wash that’s free from parabens and sulphates at this price.
