With the Passage of Time it Happens

It’s happened to me.

It didn’t happen 5 year ago when I turned 40. No, I was still feeling pretty good at 40 and my skin was in decent condition. Unfortunately another 5 years of motorcycle riding and the passage of my 45th birthday a couple weeks ago brought with it some changes I’ve been trying to ignore.

Yes, my skin is finally changing. All those years out in the sun unprotected as a kid have taken their toll. (remember all those blistering burns?) I’ll be honest, I haven’t really paid much attention to my skin. I mean, it’s there. I wash it., dry it and I’m on my way. Unfortunately age spots, crow’s feet and frown lines have now found their way into my morning skin inspection. I’m starting to pay attention!  Oh, I’ve spent money on “quality” products before, but I’ve never been impressed with them.

 Dove has come out with a revolutionary line of premium body wash. These products contain the highest concentration of NutriumMoisure technology of all the other Dove products! 
Since I'm really wanting to start over with skin care, I decided to try the 

Oh I am loving it! It contains skin natural building blocks to help improve skin's look over time, and can give you visibly more beautiful skin in just one week. My skin not only looks better, but feels amazing! 

Dove® VisibleCare™ Renewing Crème Body Wash is designed to nourish and replenish your skin. In the past I've tried products that leave me feeling like I have a film covering my whole body, but The Visible Care Renewing formula has a rich, pearlescent cream that creates a luxurious lather, then rinses clean. 

I have a very sensitive nose, so anything I try has to be appealing. I want whatever I use on my skin to make me feel clean and smell beautiful. The Visible Care Renewing Body Wash has a fruity floral fragrance that includes a modern combination of Pink Mimosa and Pomegranate. I absolutely love the scent! 

After one week of using the product, I can say I have visibly more beautiful skin from a body wash, and as we've shed those winter coats it's time to show it off!

As a 30-year-old male with super sensitive skin that Dove makes break out in hives (most everything does), I have to say I really liked the ducky in your photo!

BTW, my sisters and step-mom swear by Dove.
