Drugstore item

I really like this new Coconut Scrub Moisturizing Body Wash by Softsoap. This product mixes jojoba and coconut oils, but I must say those ingredients come way at the bottom of the ingredients list. However this wash smells like coconuts and it has these tiny exfoliating beads. The exfoliating beads are pretty light weight, so do not get this product if you are expecting superior scrubbing action. You will feel the beads but they won’t do too much exfoliating. Your skin will feel soft after you are done but the tropical scent does not last. I would get this again if only for the coconut scent and smooth skin.
For 18oz I paid $1.99 (on sale) it will gernally cost $3.99 for this size.
I remember a time when everyone had bar soaps but things have changed. Do you use liquid or bar soap?

i like that body wash line. it's affordable and smells nice (at least while in the shower). to extend the scent, i try to get a matching lotion from a cheap line like suave. i like the shea and cocoa butter one the best. i alternate bar and liquid soap.

I only use body wash (liquid). I hate the smell of bar soaps. I use Suave's Tropical Coconut - it smells heavenly!

PBW said...

I love the scent of coconut! Thanks for the recommendation!!!

BGG, I'm going to pick up the Suave version too.

I go through long phases where I use bar and then switch to liquid soap. I'm in the body wash phase now lol

I enjoy using both liquid and bar soap! Currently I've switched over to natural body washes such as Dr. Bronners, Jasons and Burts Bees! Paraben FREE!

Well since I could remember (age of 4???) I have always used the Dove Bar. My mother always bought it for me b/c its 'good for your skin' per my mama. So b/c I stick to what works I've never ever switched. If I have no choice (stay at a friends house w.out Dove) and try another brand I never feel the same. Feel weird using body wash...but I could try the Dove body wash line and see...

I prefer bar soap, but I often use body washes for bubble baths.

@Frugalista-I guess that means you like it :-).
@Antithesis You have made a great point about extending the scent, and Suave is nice also.
@BGG I only use liquid as well. I have tried the tropical coconut and I like that one as well.
@PBW Not a problem
@Just Wondering I don't think I will ever go back, just like the feeling and convenience of liquid I guess.
@Nywele, thanks I can't wait to read it.
@Bellefille I love Dr. Bonners i think my favorite is the citrus.
@Anonymous I see you are going to step out of the box a little, I can't wait to see what you think.
@Park Avenue I just love a good bubble bath.
@ Justme pathmark- I'm not sure if they have that in your area. Someone told me Pathmark is not all over the US.

ok, so I was in Target yesterday to get starct and wound up in the soap aisle. And I saw this, it smelled lovely as you said, but the price was 3.99. Now I was cool with it, I've spent way more on body wash. But then I look up and see Suave has a daily exfoliator, and man did it smell nice, and the price was 1.87. So you I bought the Suave. I used it this morning and I'm hooked after just one wash. But I will try this SoftSoap at your receommendation.

Product Junkie Diva said...

@Lashawn Love target by the way ;-)
I don't know how Suave can keep their prices so low..lol but they manage to do it. It will be great to see which you prefer, so please write back and let me know.
Thanks

i like liquid because in my shower, the soap dish is right in the shower's stream, making it melt away faster =(

@Yummy I'm a liquid gal also!!

I am definitely a liquid only person. Bar soap harbors too much bacteria and I don't like the lye in it.

Product Junkie Diva said...

@Jeewells I wasn't even thinking about the lye..good point.
