Great multitasker with some brilliant ingredients

I bought this recently on Priceline as I was curious about the old cold cleanser routine. You apply it onto a dry face and massage it in and then wipe it clean with a warm facecloth. You need to rinse and repeat until your face is clean. Done this way, it removes makeup, cleans, steams, exfoliates and moisturises your face. It really does cover several steps of a night-time routine. I found it did bring a few zits to the surface initially but then my skin got better. I also use a tiny amount as a moisturiser on weekends because the ingredients are really lovely.

This is a product i cant live without.

I have used dove for years and have been very happy with it. i have been unable to find any store stocking it around Tea Gardens ,,Newcastle, Maitland area. Please help?

New user and I'm loving it!

I have started using dove cold cream this past week. I'm 31 and i wanted a product to really help cleanse and moisturize and help rely signs of aging without it costing a fortune. With oily-combo skin it's very hard for me to find good products that don't either dry my skin out or make me break out. This stuff is. Great!!!!! I use it morning and night, wiping it off with a very warm/hot washer. I don't have to cleanse or moisturize after. I have noticed how clean and radiant my skin is and no break outs. I use it on my face, neck and décolletage area. The décolletage area i have noticed the biggest change. From dry, ichy and splotchy to smooth, not ichy at all and the red splotches are going. I have found my forever product! Let's hope they keep making it.

Perfect Product

I have been using this Cream for 40 years (Years ago the name was pond).
and I would not use anything else on my face also, it's wounderfull for taking
off make up. People ask me what I use because my skin looks youthful and is very smooth.
I am 65 years old and I would not use anything else but dove (prior pond) as a cold cream.
Inexpensie, and good product

My most favourite beauty product!

I have been using this since I first started wearing makeup almost 40 years ago. Gentle enough to use around eyes while at the same time effective enough to remove even waterproof mascara. I was devastated when I discovered my local supermarkets are no longer stocking it. I will travel as far as is necessary to get it. Very, very reasonably priced too.
Inexpensive, effective, gentle on skin & eyes

Just love it

This is the equivalent of Ponds Cold Cream. Great cheap cleanser which is gentle enough to remove eye makeup without causing irritation. I use this in the shower with a warm face washer because I find it leaves your skin a little oily if it isn't washed off properly. Best for people with dry skin as it is very moisturising. Leaves my skin, clean, fresh and very soft. Would definitely buy again and again.


I have been using Dove cleansing cream (which used to be Ponds cleanser before Dove took over the brand) since I was a teenager and, yes, my mother put me onto it! I have not found another product which works so well in removing dirt and make-up(including eye make-up) and it doesn't take a packet full of cotton wool! I have tried other products at various points and none of them measured up, they either a)irritated my skin, b) dried it out, c) did not remove all of my eye make-up or d)just did not top Dove!
I would recommend this product to anyone.
This cream is GREAT for removing eye make-up and everything else!! It's gentle and doesn't irritate my eyes or skin (as some others do). It doesn't dry my skin out and can be used morning and night. I don't need a separate eye make-up remover.
Absolutely nothing!!


I remembered Ponds cold cream and searched the net looking for their cold cream. I discovered the dove cold cream is the same and tried it. It has the lovely smell I remember from my childhood as mum used it then.(She has awesome skin still).
I use it to remove mascara and lippy. Then I smooth some over my face and wash off with a warm cloth. It gently and quickly removes all traces of makeup, and makes my skin very soft. I just love it.
It really removes all make up easily


I used this cream for the first time last night and i was so surprised how well it removed all my makeup on my face and eyes,
I love this cleansing cream. It removes all traces of my face makeup and waterproof mascara so well. It made my skin feel so soft and smooth after using it. I was actually so surprised when i wiped my face clean how much makeup was on the cloth. My normal cleanser definitly doesnt do that. From now on ill use this product to remove my makeup all the time. i have very sensitive skin and this didnt make it feel tight or sore at all
make it in a bigger container!


Nothing beats this product-NOTHING. Not as many stores are stocking it these days, but I will always source it even if I have to drive a few miles.I am a long and faithful user.
The best cleanser I have ever used to take off not only make up but also all traces of mascara and eye wear! I have used it for years and years before it was called Ponds deep cleanser. I have tried other products but have always returned to this one due to the cheap price and the ability to remove all traces of make-up!
I know its too thick to stick in a tube for dispensing but I hate the fact I have to dip my fingers into the cream, I am very conscious of bacteria etc. Perhaps I need to invest in a few ice cream sticks?

I bought some recently from a Priceline Pharmacy. I noticed it is no longer stocked by my local supermarket. I live in Tasmania.Hi Jen, I have bought this product from my Local Priceline Pharmacy in Karingal - Frankston Victoria. Maybe you should give them a call. Hope this help. Jenny

Howdy - how would I find out the ingredients without actually buying the skincare product? - Cheers

Hi Brian, my first suggestion would be to look at the product in the supermarket, the ingredients should be listed on the packaging, or alternatively, you could contact the manufacturer and ask them. Companies often have information on their website or at least a tab where you can ask a questionOk thanks - cheers
