the matte project


Summer can be tricky when it comes to moisturisation because as much as you don’t want dry skin, you also don’t want to feel sticky throughout the day. Usually, I use a light body lotion in summer and a thick cream in winter. I love a good body oil and tend to use oils in the evenings rather than during the day.

This has changed with Dove’s DermaSpa Goodness body oil. It is thicker than other body oils I’ve used, silky and comes as a golden liquid that leaves the skin more even toned with an ever-so–subtle glow. Once absorbed into the skin, it leaves no oily residue – instead, the skin feels velvety and soft. I find that if I apply oil to slightly damp skin, it absorbs better than when applied on very dry skin.

The packaging is impressive because it is travel-safe. Usually when you travel on long flights with oils, they will leak. The team at @Dove DermaSpa was very clever in designing this bottle because it is truly leak-free.

This omega rich oil can be used daily and can be applied all over the body. It’s certainly going to be my go-to product this summer as I show more skin.
