Dove Pink Rosa Beauty Secrets

Dove has been my go to deodorant ever since I could remember and and I recently got to try the new Pink Rosa scent. This tall size and the ‘cleartone’ is my favorite because like every other New Yorker, I wear a ton of black. And after I get dressed I always change my mind and my deodorant rarely stains. The Pink Rosa scent is not like rosewater but a brisk and fresh light floral that never clashes with my perfume.  It is formulated with  Calendula & Sunflower Seed Extracts.

The New Dove Clear Tone Pink Rosa is designed to reduce irritation and even skin tone while also providing 48 hour odor and wetness protection. So say bye bye to shaving bumps! 32 million women experience underarm red and dark marks from shaving but I am not one of them. Are you?


I love sharing my beauty secrets on the blog and over tea so a HUGE thank you to Dove for sending me the lovely glass floating tea set.

Even Tai loves the tea set!
