Dove Glowing Ritual Body Lotion: As I am an owner of dry skin, any kind of body moisturizer is always welcome in my skin care regimen. I need to keep my skin moisturized throughout the day to avoid the flaky skin. Repeated applications of the same lotion every time makes me bored. That is why I tend to stock up a variety of affordable body lotions in my vanity. Today I will be talking about Dove Nourishing Secrets Glowing Ritual Body Lotion. This lotion comes under the new Nourishing Secrets range of body lotions from Dove. I have already tried the ‘Invigorating Ritual’ variant from the same range and liked it. So, I decided to go for this Glowing Ritual variant this time to make the best of the introductory offer! Bear with me to know about this body lotion in detail.

Together, this blend with lotus flower and rice milk promises to nourish skin deeply while its floral scent delights the senses.

My Experience with Dove Nourishing Secrets Glowing Ritual Body Lotion
Packaging- This lotion comes with a white flip top bottle. I have opted for the largest size (400ml) so my bottle may feel a bit bulky. But, this one is also available in a smaller size which is more travel-friendly. Now, the packaging of this lotion is quite similar to the other two body lotions from the Nourishing Secrets range, however, the difference is in the label graphics. This one is showing a picture of Lotus flower which is also the main ingredient in this lotion. The packaging is quite sturdy but I am not sure if this huge bottle drops from my hand!
Colour & Texture- The lotion is white colored and it is denser than a regular body lotion. The formula spreads well on the skin and gets absorbed pretty fast. It does not leave behind annoying oiliness but you can still sense your skin is moisturized. Since I have used another variant of this lotion earlier, I can tell this one is slightly lighter than the ‘Invigorating Ritual’ one.
Fragrance- Now, this is something I need to discuss in detail I feel. This lotion has a very nice yet light floral fragrance to it. The scent is not a common one. It has a similarity to the fragrance of water plant flowers. As my nose is accustomed to jasmine, lily or rose fragrance, at first the fragrance did not appeal to me that much. When I started using this lotion regularly, I started loving the smell.
Experience- The recent craze of Korean skincare has helped us to rediscover the goodness of rice water and rice milk. This body lotion is also inspired by that trend since it has Lotus Flower extract and Rice Milk as the main ingredients. Formula wise this is a good body moisturizer that nourishes the skin and the fragrance is good too. For normal to oily body skin, this one can be used around the year. Those who have dry skin (like me) will need something more moisturizing than this in the windy and dry winter months. Currently, I am applying this after a bath. After 4-5 hours I am feeling the urge to reapply. When the moisturizing effects last, the skin looks supple and healthy. I think it will be a good body moisturizer for the spring time so I am going to shelf it for now.
Overall Performance of Dove Nourishing Secrets Glowing Ritual Body Lotion
- Non-sticky formula
- Nice floral fragrance
- Keeps skin moisturized for 4-5 hours
- Did not cause body acne
- May not be sufficient for extreme winter dryness
- Not the best choice for dry to very dry skin
Would I Repurchase or Recommend?
Dove Nourishing Secrets Glowing Ritual Body Lotion is a standard body lotion with a unique floral fragrance. This is something I would suggest someone who does not have dry skin and want a decent moisturizer for day to day use. I don’t think it will be able to cater winter dryness!
