I have had the great pleasure of getting to test out a few products of Baby Dove’s newest line of sensitive products, thanks to an influencer opportunity through ChickAdvisor. I had applied for the campaign being honest about not currently having a baby – I was surprised to have been chosen, and was happy to test out what was sent to me none-the-less.
I was sent the Baby Dove Sensitive Moisture Tip to Toe Wash, Baby Dove Sensitive Moisture Lotion, and Baby Dove Sensitive Moisture Wipes.
The line boasts:
- Tear free
- Opthalmologist/Dermatoligist/Pediatrician tested
- Mild and gentle for sensitive skin
Baby Dove Sensitive Moisture Tip to Toe Wash
I love that this has a pump rather than being a squeeze tube or a capped product, as it helps to keep the area and bottle less messy, not to mention that there is no struggle dispensing the wash using one hand. You can lock and unlock the pump by twisting it from side to side.
This product is fragrance free and is a thick, gentle and creamy formula. A little goes a long way! This lathers well as a sort of cream on its own without water, but thins and bubbles up slightly when added. It rinses off with no issues and leaves the skin clean and residue free. I am not too sure that I would agree this was hydrating – I do feel that this was slightly drying, so lotion needed to be applied afterward.

Baby Dove Sensitive Moisture Lotion
“gently moisturizes skin for 24 hours”
This is my favourite product out of the new Baby Dove sensitive line! This formula is scent free and is a medium to light creamy consistency. It is gentle and no irritation was observed even on more sensitive areas. It leaves a slight tacky feeling to the skin when it is first applied, but after about a minute, it soaks in completely and is smooth. I found this to be hydrating, even lasting the 24 hours that it claimed. Even on adult skin (I loved using it on my elbows), this lotion kept the skin smooth and hydrated into the next day.
After loving the packing and pump of the body wash, I was a little let down that this was a squeeze bottle. You need to be careful to let out just the right amount because you either trap air in the bottle, or need to squeeze a bunch in to get the product out and it can sometimes surprise you and jump out. Other than that, I have no complaints about this product. I would still purchase this even if the packaging were not changed. *I now see that the larger bottles of lotion have a pump*
Baby Dove Sensitive Moisture Wipes
“as gentle as water with instant moisturization”
I am a wipe fanatic – I used them every day. I was excited to be testing out something specifically for sensitive skin. These, however, fell a bit short for me. The most disappointing thing about these is the lack of moisture in the wipe itself. If you’re wanting to use them as a quick wipe down of an area or even the whole body, you would be able to do so, but they do not have the moisture or texture to take care of large messes or tacky/dried substances.
The wipe is thin and large to begin with, but can even be stretched lengthwise to be longer than a forearm. This completely removes any texture on the wipe, but that is almost non existent anyway. They cannot be stretched width wise and take a considerable amount of force to tear, so they are durable enough in that sense. These were not irritating, other than the fact that they dry up quickly so you can’t use them for a long period of time. I did not notice a sent or any irritation when testing these out, which was great!

Overall, if you’re using on someone with sensitive skin for a general wipe down, this would be a good product to use, but if you’re looking to clean up any type of mess, you’ll want to skip these.
Would I recommend these products?
I would hands down – no questions say yes to the lotion any day. I have never had a lotion last into the next day! The skin on my body, other than my face, is frequently super dry, so I am happy to continue using this product even as an adult. As for the wash, I would say go for it, if you or your baby have skin that isn’t very dry, otherwise you will probably find that you need to use lotion immediately after. I would skip the wipes if you are looking for something to remove makeup or clean up a messy baby bottom. They are sturdy, but the lack of texture and moisture is a problem.
I hope you enjoyed hearing about how I liked these new products.
What do you use currently? What are your thoughts on these new Dove products?
I received these products complimentary in exchange for my honest review.
