Product Review: Dove Energy Glow Daily Moisturizer

I bought Dove’s Energy Glow, which is a daily moisturizer with subtle self-tanners. I wanted something I could use in my daily routinue that would give me a hint of color without having to worry about streaking, smelling like a self-tanner, orange hands and having to wait a while for my “tan” to dry to my skin.

There are several companies making these lotions, but my friend advised me against Vaseline’s Healthy Body Glow because it smells like a self-tanner (if you’ve tried a self-tanner you know what we’re talking about). That’s not to say Dove’s lotion is fragrance-free, it doesn’t reek like a self-tanner but it has a slight flowery scent. I have a super sniffer and after I put this on my face I don’t notice it much, which is a very good thing. I haven’t been using it long, but it must be working because people have commented on my “tan.”

As for the price, it is on par with that of self-tanning lotions, although Amazon sells these type of products as multi-packs (cool if you can split with a pal or two!). I like to price-check H&B items on Amazon to see if they are a good price and something to consider when rounding out an order for free shipping.

    Have you tried out or heard anything on the Jergen’s subtle self-tanning lotion? And where did you find your Dove lotion at? I bought some Energy Glow yesterday at Target, the bottle looks completely different than the one in the Amazon link and it doesn’t mention anything about self-tanners.

    I haven’t heard of anyone using the Jergens.
    The Dove lotion I bought looks just like the Amazon one and has self-tanners. I got it from Kroger; it was not with regular body lotions like you might expect it was in what I would call a special area next to sunscreen.
    Next time I cruise Target, I’ll have to check out their offerings.

    The Jergens lotion stinks, which is why I stopped using it. It definitely smells like self-tanner. It’s good to hear that Dove doesn’t; I may pick some up. I did like having a subtle “tan.” No one commented on it, but I could tell.

    Olay just came out with some that’s specifically for your face with UVA/UVB sunscreen. I haven’t been able to find it in the stores though, yet.
