Hands down the best antiperspirant I have ever used." - Russ R.

Why You Need It: Sweating at the gym can lead to an imbalance in skin moisture. Dove's Oil Control Body Wash uses micromoisture technology to maintain skin hydration levels while combating oil production. It can be used as a face or body wash, meaning you won't have to carry around two products to get great results!
What Influensters Say: "Used this soap on my face and back after workouts, and noticed a considerable difference in the feel of my skin after getting out of the shower. It has a clean scent that is light and not overpowering. I used in on both a back scrubber, a sponge, and my bare hands, and it lathers very well. It also does not leave any residue after washing like other soaps do! This is a very good product and I would definitely buy it for myself in the future!" -Eric O.
