Caress me!

Sometimes I feel like I'm not a "proper" female because I hate fussing about in the shower. This is the reason why I rarely take baths. I like to get in and out as fast as possible, so I've never been a girl with an overflowing shower caddy.

My minimalistic approach to hygiene is definitely time efficient, but it's frustrating because I would still like to pamper my skin without the small army of soaps, scrubs, lotions, etc.

Well, it looks like the heavens have finally opened up and answered my prayers! Imagine a body wash that leaves your skin so darn soft you don't even need to use lotion. Then, add in the luxurious lather factor, the lovely scent, and the price - under $5!

What is this all-in-one miracle you ask? Why Caress's new Whipped Souffle Body Wash of course!

I decided to pick up this little gem because of Jenn Falik - who is probably my idol. Notice how I cleverly snuck in "probably" to make myself sound less obsessive. Hehe

Anyways, I adore her and she was raving about this bodywash, so I figured I might as well give it a go. Now I trust Jenn's opinions wholeheartedly, but I must admit I was a tad skeptical with this venture. When a product promises silky smooth skin and ultra hydration I can't help but raise an eyebrow.

Well guess what? She was dead usual! This puppy lathers up beautifully and I immediately noticed how thick and rich it was in comparison to other "moisturizing" washes I've used. I instantly felt pampered. Plus, it can double as a shaving cream - which is music to my ears! This means I can cleanse, moisturize, AND shave all in one step. Lazy girls rejoice!

Believe me when I say lotion becomes optional after you start using this body wash. This may be a strange thing to mention, but I usually have extremely dry shins for some reason. After using the Whipped Souffle though, I noticed an almost immediate difference in my skin. It was softer, smoother, and remained hydrated all day. I've probably used every cream, lotion, and wash on the market and nothing is like this baby. I am in love!

The Whipped Souffles are currently available in two scents - Blackberry Cream and White Peach Cream. I personally prefer the white peach though. It's light, fresh, and well, perfect! Throw in the fact that it's under $5 and how could I not be obsessed? This is going to be a lifesaver for me, especially during the impending winter months.

So go on, get yourself a bottle! You'll be glad you did.

  8. Hey girls I got a question for you. I'm thinking of present ideas for my girl friend. I was wondering if body wash or cosmetics in general would make for a nice gift.
