As a skincare enthusiast and licensed esthetician, I pride myself in keeping my skin as healthy as possible. Like anyone who’s always on the lookout for the best skincare options, I have a few trusted products I rarely change, and others I’m constantly rotating in order to find something better. One item I hadn’t found a replacement for until recently, is my cleansing bar.

I’ve been using the same premium cleansing bar off and on for years, never quite satisfied with the results, so when Dove asked if I was up for their 7-Day Beauty Bar challenge, I happily accepted! While I was skeptical at first, thinking my higher priced bar would definitely outperform a budget-friendly cleansing bar, I was wrong- my skin was completely different after using the Dove Beauty Bar for just one week!

With ¼ moisturizing cream and a unique blend of mild cleansers, the Dove Beauty Bar maintains skin’s appearance and provides soft, smooth, healthy-looking skin, proving to be milder and gentler on the skin than my premium cleansing bar. Not only was my skin more radiant, but I could see and feel a major difference in texture and tone, so I highly recommend the Beauty Bar for anyone wanting to truly transform their skin in as little as 7 days!

As part of the challenge, I documented my experience via video, which you can view below:

In addition to completing the 7 day challenge at home, I had the honor of shooting a Dove commercial sharing my experience with the Beauty Bar that’s now airing in Canada and select channels in the US, so keep an eye out for it this month as it’s starting to run nationwide!
