Dove Foaming Makeup Remover and Giveaway

Sponsored by Dove and Kidspot

I have never been good a keeping a regular routine in relation to taking care of my face. I am always too tired, too busy or too forgetful at night time to remember to stop and look after my skin. However, now that I am getting a little older, I am feeling more and more the importance of putting a good routine in place. A simple routine that cares for my face.

I have used many different products over my years and normally what I use depends upon what is on special at the time I go grocery shopping. I scan the grocery store shelves looking for a product to try and often look out for what is new to the store. So when I heard there was a new product out, I was very excited to have the opportunity to try the new Dove Foaming Make-up remover.


Product information found here.

Upon receiving the Dove Foaming Makeup Remover, I was really impressed with the look of the product and the bottle. I love that it is a pump bottle and even comes with a stopper to put under the pump for travel.  I recommend this product and it has become a great addition to my night time routine.

Here are some things I love about this product:
  • I love that it is in liquid form and turns into foam when pumping out of the bottle. There is no need to shake and mix up the bottle to get the consistency right.
  • It can be applied to a dry or wet face to remove makeup. This suits me if I am feeling really tired and lazy at night and want a quick way to remove my makeup.
  • For the amount of makeup that I wear each day I found I did not need very many pumps of the bottle to remove all of my makeup - 2 pumps at the most. Therefore lasting longer.
  • It easily removed all of my makeup and even stubborn waterproof mascara that I tested.
  • The foam feels soft and smooth on my face when applying it.
  • I liked the smell and it was not overpowering when applying to my face.
  • It left my face feeling really clean and could almost be used as a cleanser.
  • It comes in a great pump bottle that is a great addition to your shower routine.
I did find that if you do get the Dove Foaming Makeup Remover in your eye, it does cause some mild irritation and caution is required in this area. Even though it does live up to being able to remove heavy makeup, I recommend you use a gentle makeup remover if you really need to scrub heavy makeup off of your eyes.

Since receiving this product, I have been reviewing my night time routine. I know I am one of many women who go to bed still wearing makeup and have found it really beneficial to my skin to use a makeup remover on my face before sleeping.

Thanks to Dove I have a $25 Coles gift card to give away so that you can go and purchase your own Dove Foaming Makeup Remover to test out for yourself.

  4. I am hopeless. I used to do the whole Clinique 3 step thing religiously. Now, if my skin is lucky, it gets some coconut oil.

    I keep meaning to implement a skin routine again. Would love to try Dove!

  5. the amount of times I've tried to start a night beauty routine is ridiculous.

    I do work three nights a week though and get home around midnight, so that is usually last thing on my mind.

    Mind you, I'll still find 5 minutes before bed to check my emails. Shows where my priorities are I suppose. lol.

  6. I'm using a Dove cleanser/toner in the shower at the moment and love it! Very easy.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Since I have to wear make up everyday now for work I wipe my face with a make up remover/moisturiser, I think it's Garnier.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I will admit when I do wear make up (which isn't often) I get lazy and most times I sleep in it.
    When I do remove it, I usually use wipes and then a quick once over with my foaming face wash.
    I do need something a little easier!

  9. Love to try new products.

    ReplyDelete
  10. If I have time, I cleanse + tone + serum + moisturise. If I'm too tired, I simply use a cleansing wipe (with built-in moisturiser) and then flake it into bed!

    ReplyDelete
  11. If I am dilligent i will THINK about a skin care regime before bed LOL - i usually use dove soap in the shower and moisturise each night and day

    ReplyDelete
  12. I've probably removed my make up before bed about twice in my lifetime. I am HORRID at looking after my skin outside of the shower cubicle. Each morning I use a cleanser while I'm showering, but that is the full extent of looking after my skin. My poor face!! I have bought makeup removers in the past and not used them because of all the effort involved. I like the look of this product being the foam - so much easier to apply and I would be much more inclined to use it. Definitely worth a try I think :)

  13. I have very sensitive, and oily skin, so I'm still looking for a good makeup remover that doesn't irritate my skin, but still removes all of my makeup. At the moment, my night time routine is to cleanse, tone and then moisturise. Its taken me 8 years to find a toner that doesn't irritate my skin, so that part of my routine is new.

  14. Currently, my night time routine involves cleansing with St Ives Green Tea Cleanser, toning with TN Dickinson's Witchazel, then applying Dr Lewinns Double Intensity Night Cream. I also put on some Born Lippy Lip Balm from The Body Shop right before bed.

  15. I shower at night so I usually just cleanse and tone, and exfoliate once a week. Greawt giveaway, I'm almost out of cleanser and exfoliant!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Night routine? Finish cup of tea, drink glass of water, check kids, brush teeth, get into bed, turn out light, roll over and think... uh oh, make up's still on. Again. For the tenth..twentieth...thirtieth night in a row! I have SO many products I'm overwhelmed by the task. I think I need something easier!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh my routine once I wash off random bits of baby food, sweat and tears with a facewash is to slap on some moisturizer and there you go. I have tried to do the whole routine but have failed miserably. I use to dove but haven't for a while so would like to give them another go.

    ReplyDelete
  18. i use a facewash or scrub and then moisturise im lucky i get time to do that with 4 cherubs of my own.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I don't have one. Perhaps Dove could get me started.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I don't have one. I usually wake up with eye makeup still on and just need to freshen it the next day.

    I'll pay for it when I'm old and wrinkly so maybe Dove can help me get into a routine.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Night-time makeup routine?? Hmmm If my skin feels a bit dry I do use some sorbeline. Thanks to Seven Cherubs and to Dove. Would dearly love to win. :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. I always cleanser tone and moisturise everyday and every saturday night exfoliate as well.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Nothing too fancy but I wash my face with a foaming face wash in the shower and then put on a moisturiser (the current one happens to be Dove too!!). Christine

  24. I use a gentle scub then moisturise and/or put a bit of rose hip oil on my face. Apparently it does wonders for the skin. I am yet to see the results :) Oh and I TRY and drink lots of water for my skin too!

  25. I cleanse in the shower and use a gentle scrub... when I remember is apply a night moisturer too.

  26. Sadly, over the baby years my night time routine totally vanished. Does baby spew and never taking your mascara off count as a routine???? I'm getting my skin care mojo back a bit now. I love DOVE product so would love to try this. I love the way they treat women of all shapes as real women!!! Yay Dove.

  30. I'm just starting to wear makeup again, bought some lovely stuff for the wedding and I'm testing it all out. I guess that means I should start a night time routine - I don't even own makeup remover! This looks fab.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I always have to remove my makeup otherwise I'm scared I'll break out and my skin is horrible so I always take caution. I wash my face with two different cleansers to ensure my face is makeup-free then I apply rosehip oil and a moisturiser to finish off.

    This product looks and sounds great though.

  32. I don't have a makeup routine - I just moisturise

    ReplyDelete
  33. My teenage daughter doesn't bother to remove her make up ("it comes off by itself, see, its all over the pillow case") so this product could be ideal for her(lazy self). Easy to use, no effort and recommended by someone who is not her mother :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I use make-up remover to get rid of any make-up and then use a blackhead cleanser to help clear up my skin!

    ReplyDelete
  35. At night before bed time, i make it a point to remove any left over day make up from my face.
    Then i wash my face and massage my face with a moisturising face lotion.

    I don't have a night time routine I follow every night. Time to start again now that my baby is getting older.

  38. My night time routine is quick and easy. Wash my face, dry and then apply some illuminator creme and any wrinkle cream if it's handy (otherwise,the wrinkles can wait for the morning).

  39. I have a pump action cleanser in the shower so I can rub on and rinse off with no added effort.... I'm sooo lazy.

  40. i usually just exfoliate in the shower every night, laziness central right here!

  41. First thing before i hit the shower when i get home, i use the Dove Foaming Makeup Remover to get rid of all my makeup. It is so easy to use. Love it <3 Then when showering, i use Fancl Facial Washing Powder. When i get out of the shower, i use Fancl Lotion AC for moisturizing, The Face Shop Post Acne Brightening Serum for whitening, The Face Shop Post Acne Nighttime Sport Eraser (to get rid of acne scars) and Clearasil's pimple cream. And this is just the basics.... Seems like a lot of work now that i list it out.... *laughs*

    ReplyDelete
  44. I just cleanse with a face wipe...quick, easy, and inexpensive!

  45. I used to have a massively planned out routine, but now I find washing with a face washer in the shower at night and some moisteriser is mostly it before I fall asleep - until Ifeel guilty and then I'll put more effort in for about a few months. Just haven't found anything I like yet that makes it easy!
