I’ve just discovered an exciting new product, and I can’t wait to share it with you! Introducing Ivory DUO.
This relatively new product has been around for a little while, but it has not received nearly the amount of attention it deserves. I have to be honest, I had never heard of this product when DUO first contacted me. However, after learning a little bit about how it works, a lightbulb lit up in my head.
DUO has implications far beyond just a simple shower product; it changes how we think about self-care. But more on that later.
Learn more about DUO itself, check out my experience with the Tape Test DUOver, and see how I incorporate DUO into my personal routine.
Let’s get started!
What is DUO anyway?
Duo is an all-in-one shower experience. It combines the best of all worlds: the squeaky clean feeling of a bar soap, the richness and comfort of a body wash, and the exfoliation of a puff. Talk about the ultimate multi-tasker!
Can you see where I’m headed with this?
Let’s talk the basics — Where can I find DUO and how much does it cost?
DUO comes in three recognizable varieties- Ivory, Olay, and Old Spice. A scent exists for everybody, so there’s no excuse not to use it!
My review is based on the Ivory variety, but there’s no doubt in my mind that the others are just as lovely.
Ivory DUO is widely available. Anywhere you find Ivory (or Olay or Old Spice) soaps, you’ll probably find DUO too. Here are some places you can find Ivory DUO online >> [AMAZON] [WALMART] [TARGET] [WALGREENS]
Ivory DUO typically costs between $9.99 and $12.99 USD, but there is a special promotion happening right now where you can purchase DUO for much less. Stay tuned until the end of this post for more on that!
Here’s how DUO works
Each DUO contains three components, the “scrubby” side, the “smoothing” side, and the cleanser sandwiched in between.
It’s super simple. Just add water, work up a lather thanks to the built-in cleanser, and scrub away! I like using the “scrubby” side first to get any grime and dead skin cells off the surface of my skin. Then, I flip the product and go over my skin one more time with the “smoothing” side.
This picks up anything that the scrubber may have left behind, but beyond that, it just provides a really cozy and comforting shower experience. If your shower could give you a hug after a long day at work, this is what it would feel like!
When you’re done, simply hang DUO to dry using the included loop. Which, by the way, is made out of a rubberized material rather than rope. I appreciate when products think about cleanliness and longevity.
Tape Test DUOver
DUO proposed a test when they contacted me. They wanted to prove just how easy and effective DUO really is at removing grime, dead skin cells, and any other ickies you’d rather not have on your skin.
In order to get a visual, I pressed a strip of clear tape on my ankle before using Ivory DUO for the first time. My ankles are arguably the driest and flakiest parts of my body, so they make the perfect test subjects.
What I saw when I peeled up the tape was honestly shocking. I knew I was dry, but I didn’t think I had that much dead skin hanging around, especially since I had just showered a few hours prior. Something had to change.
With this revelation in mind, I set out using my Ivory DUO. I used it every time I showered, which amounts to once or twice per day depending on whether I worked out or not.
The results speak for themselves
I used the product for a total of six days, equaling nine individual uses. During this time, I didn’t use any other soaps, body washes, or exfoliators on my body.
After my final shower, I pressed a fresh strip of tape onto the same area on my ankle. As you can see in the Before and After photos, the difference is pretty staggering. The Before strip is completely white with dead skin, and there are lots of visible flakes stuck on there. It’s pretty gross, TBH.
The After strip is much better. Yes, there is still some skin visible on the tape, but it is very minimal compared to the atrocity that is the Before tape strip!
I’m impressed, to say the least.
How DUO revolutionized my travel needs
If you have ever read my travel beauty posts, then you probably know that I am a light packing aficionado. I am endlessly searching for the latest and greatest products capable of making packing and traveling easier and less stressful.
Multi-tasking products make me giddy, but they have to actually work. Ivory DUO definitely passes the test!
Instead of packing my scrubby shower cloth, (which is actually quite large and impractical for travel,) plus a bottle of liquid shower gel that takes up precious space in my already cramped carry-on liquids bag, all I have to do is toss this one product in my toiletry bag and I’m ready to shower on the go.
So why do you need DUO?
Thanks to our hyper-connected world, being ready to jet-set off at a moment’s notice is so important. And while I think chasing opportunities is awesome, I strongly believe in the importance of self-care.
When you need to be ready at a moment’s notice, products like Ivory DUO are lifesavers! Ivory DUO takes the stress out of packing, plus it gives you all the benefits of a full shower set all in one item. You no longer must choose between packing quickly and lightly, and feeling comfortable and beautiful when you’re on the go.
That’s something I can stand behind.
