[unpaid/purchase] I picked up this Dove Shower Mousse up at my local Superdrug recently mainly because of the nozzle. If you’re a packaging geek, you’ll understand, but if not, then leave me to my madness! It’s a formula that can be used for showering or shaving – or both at the same time.
Shower & Shave foams are relatively recent – and most of the brands I’ve tried are lovely, including the Dove Shower Mousse. There’s something very lush about these intensely soft floofs of foam that cover you head to foot in clouds until you wash off. This one is skin softening, has a light floral, coconut scent and I absolutely love it! However, what thinking is it that takes the most airy form that a beauty product can have and sends it though the nozzle in thin, rectangular ribbons!
Why would you do this? I’m telling you, without wanting to be judgemental, this is man-thinking! They’re thinking of the razor, not the foam and while you can create a ‘stripe’ with it that in theory fits nicely down the legs, it’s so nicely flumpy that it really doesn’t matter – one squirt would do a whole shin – probably a whole leg. I wanted a perfect puff not square edges to my bubbles. Just saying. You can find it at any high street store – Boots, Superdrug etc for £3.99.

Ribbons of foam – sounds right like my cuppa! 🙂 (Just finished second pack of rose-shaped foam – thanks, Therme, for following the trend in your Mystic Rose line!) Also love all things interestingly shaped (as long as it doesn’t compromise utility too much)…
I love my cat paw shaped foam and my rose shaped foam. The very thought that we ladies need lines to help us shave … urgh… men’s shave foam doesn’t come out in a line!
I miss the flower foam from Rituals. I can’t even remember what it smelled like!
I think I might still have mine – couldn’t bear to use it all up.
Therme has it in the Mystic Rose line – it smells like rose with a bit of patchouli and comes out in rose shape.
Ooh lovely 🙂
I absolutely love this, and my nose finds the coconut option you’ve shown to be by far the nicest smell. I mainly use it as a shower gel (mousse?), where it feels very gentle while being very effective, but it’s very useful to have on hand for a quick swipe with the razor.
Yes, I love the scent (not too much) and the feel of the foam 🙂
