Who loves to start each season with a new scented body wash? I do! I love experimenting with scent and nothing is better than rotating out the “old” and trying the latest body wash releases. What I like is that these are inexpensive drugstore finds, so it’s a nice indulgence that doesn’t cost a fortune. Here are some of my new favorite body washes…
Olay Body recently introduced The Fresh Outlast Collection of body washes (beauty bars, too), which are inspired by farmers markets! My favorite is Crisp Pear and Fuji Apple; it really smells fresh. These body washes are formulated with essential oil fragrances and are formulated to work with skin’s natural pH. Your skin feels soft and clean, with no residue. At under $6 for a 23.6 ounce bottle, these won’t break the bank!
From AVEENO®, I’ve been loving the Daily Moisturizing Body Wash, which is soap free, dye free and hypoallergenic, so it’s gentle enough for sensitive skin. The lightly-scented formula includes soothing Colloidal Oatmeal and other natural oils and emollients for soft, smooth skin. What I like is that it’s nice and thick, and really feels luxurious!
I adore beauty products that have mandarin in them or are mandarin-fragranced. Dove go fresh Revitalize body wash has the invigorating citrus scent of mandarin and tiare flower–love! I’ve always found Dove body washes to be so nice; they have the NutriumMoisture technology, so skin is soft, clean and thoroughly hydrated. The formula is rich on the skin; this is one that I’d easily rebuy. The 22 ounce bottle has a suggested retail of $6.99.
If you’re a perfume lover, you need to try the the Caress Forever Collection (suggested retail $3.99 each), featuring the world’s first Fragrance Touch Technology. These body washes release bursts of perfume every time you touch your skin for up to 12 hours. Body washes are getting real! There are two scents available; Adore Forever and Love Forever. Both share rose notes, while Adore Forever has notes of honey and vanilla, Love Forever takes on an amber and dark berry scent. The perfume effect is very subtle, so no need to worry you’re going to be dripping in fragrance.
New Dial® Omega Moisture Body Wash was one of the nicest discoveries of all the body washes I tested. This body wash is formulated with omega-packed Sea Berries, which help to strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier. It has a pleasant fruity-floral scent and leaves skin feeling clean, fresh and hydrated. Also new is Dial® Miracle Oil Body Wash, which uses micro oil technology and Marula Oil in the formula. This variant is great if you have really dry skin, regardless of the season. It feels luxurious on the skin and I love the Blue Lotus blossom scent.
The Suave® Professionals Sea Mineral Infusion Collection of body washes and lotions has a ‘spa’ feel to it. The range includes Sea Mineral Infusion Exfoliating Body Wash, Sea Mineral Infusion Purifying Body Wash, Sea Mineral Infusion Spray Lotion and Sea Mineral Infusion Body Lotion. The products are infused with minerals from the Dead Sea, so skin is rejuvenated, hydrated and scented with a fresh fragrance. This is a great collection of products, with suggested retail prices of $2.99-$5.99.
Make sure to keep an out for these new releases in your favorite mass retailers (think Target, Walmart), drugstores and supermarkets nationwide. They’re all so reasonably priced that you’ll feel pampered and pretty without spending a fortune!
