How To Identify Original Dove Soap vs Fake

A fake Dove Soap is a bit difficult to distinguish from the Original.  Here tips to help you avoid buying a fake Dove soap;

 

Dove Soap packaging: Back in the day, you could spot a counterfeit based solely on shoddy packaging. Now, that’s a lot harder to do. Now, the packaging can look almost identical.” In other words, just because something looks legit doesn’t mean that it actually is, so it’s important to test the actual product or check out the retailer selling the Dove soap before slathering it all over your body. ALSO SEE: How To Spot Original Kojie San Soap vs Fake

 

Buy Dove Soap from a reputable seller: When you purchase products directly from a brand or an authorized retailer, you know what you’re getting. Elsewhere on the Internet, it’s not so clear. Websites that work with third parties which many, many people turn to for their beauty products are hotbeds for fakes, and if you think you’re getting a great deal on something that’s usually super expensive or sold out elsewhere, chances are it’s probably too good to be true.

 

Check the Dove Soap reviews: If you are going to buy skin care on Amazon, for example, which has many third-party sellers, it’s important to research by reading a seller’s reviews. “If a seller has repeated negative reviews, or reviews that your gut tells you are ‘staged’ or ‘fake’ because they all contain nearly the exact same language, do not purchase your Dove Soap from that seller even if the price is so compelling and attractive.

 

Test the Dove Soap: Testing new products on your arm or hand is always important, but it’s especially important in the case of counterfeits. If a Dove Soap you’ve been using forever is suddenly giving you contact dermatitis when you try it, it’s a good sign that it’s a fake Dove Soap.
