Has a very good lather. Very creamy and moisturizing. Has a light fresh scent that lasts for a while but not overpowering. Doesn’t not cause me to breakout which is a plus and is very affordable.

I agree that the scent has changed. I used to love the scent. I originally started buying this body wash for the antibacterial factor during Covid but the reason I continued buying it was the scent. This last one I purchased definitely smells different. Almost fishy? So unfortunate. They really need to change the scent back. I’m giving it 3 stars because it USED to be amazing and if they change it back it deserves 5 stars.

My go to body wash. I love the scent, it smells fresh and clean. It doesn’t feel drying and it is a thick consistency but doesn’t make your skin feel gross. Kind of pricey, but I’ll always repurchase.

A soft but clean, fresh scent. Leaves my skin feeling soft, but as a stinky girl, it keeps me smelling good for 24+ hours. I was using hibicleanse on my underarms, but this is just as effective for much less money!

Cee - 1 month ago, Verified purchaser
Dove has changed the smell of this body wash. It used to be amazing, now it’s verrrry perfume-y. Like, dreadful. At first I thought I bought the wrong thing, so I looked closely at the two bottles. The fronts were slightly different, but the entire back where the ingredients and stuff are was exactly the same. The smells, however, are significantly different. I did a little research and found lots of complaints in general online about the new smell. I ended up pitching it. :(

I have used nothing but the dove antibacterial body wash since I discovered it. It's moisturizing, as well as killing bacteria 🦠 I accumulate on my body throughout the day. I truly hope target always carries it.

We use this for my son who has eczema. I don’t care for the scent. The bottle design and pump work great. So it’s easy to use. Size is good for cost. Don’t know if we will buy again.

Dove antibacterial care is an indispensable product in my daily hygiene routine. It’s not just soap; it’s a product that takes care of my skin, protecting it from bacteria while keeping it moisturized and soft. I am impressed by how well it cleanses and leaves a feeling of freshness throughout the day. Its formula provides antibacterial protection but does not cause dryness or irritation like other similar products. I’ve also noticed that it helps reduce unpleasant odors, especially in the summer heat. Best of all, it has a pleasant, unobtrusive scent. I have already recommended Dove antibacterial care to my friends and family, and everyone who has tried it has been satisfied. It’s a product that truly delivers on its promises, and I will continue to purchase it. If you’re looking for a reliable antibacterial skincare product that doesn’t damage your skin, then Dove antibacterial care is what you need.

Used this after I had a procedure done on my stomach. It was recommended I use antibacterial soap to not infect my scars. I prefer using this as oppose to the soap bar.
