NOT A FAKE. At least not the bottle I got. I read the ingredients on the back of the bottle as compared to the ingredients on the actual Dove website for the same product and they're identical. Not a thing different. This product actually helped soften and clear my skin up! My husband and I have been ordering this same bottle for a year now. My only con is that when water gets inside the bottle it starts to smell like mildew after a little while so I suggest keeping it above and away from where your showerhead sprays or in a cabinet once you're done using it.
