Beauty on a Budget: Caress Exotic Oil Infusion Cream Oil Body Wash Review

Isn’t it nice to sometimes run across a product that not only works but is inexpensive as well?

And let it be so for Caress’s New Line of Exotic Oil Infused Cream Body Washes. Each 15oz bottle is a mere $4.29 USD (or cheaper in some cases if it’s on sale!) and totally spoils you in the shower! That’s good pickings to the Muse!

I’m an absolute addict when it comes to shower gels. I have many, many, many brands and types that are rotating in my shower constantly. I honestly can’t say I use the same product everyday since my shower is loaded up with options as if it’s a drugstore!

One particular product that’s cheap and inexpensive that I use a plenty of is simple baby oil. I keep baby oil on hand after using my shower gel to smooth on my legs, elbows, knees, etc….it’s a simple way of keeping my skin nice and soft (it’s also a good way to slip in the shower and fall on your arse but that’s a story for another day).

The good news is I no longer need my baby oil! I can get the same effects with Caress Exotic Oil Infusion Body Washes as they contain a nice healthy load of skin softening oil combined with a gorgeous body wash!

These body washes come in Brazilian, Japanese, and Moroccan blends. I was testing out the Brazilian version this morning which is a mix of passion flower and fruit oil. It smells floral but has that crisp, clean feeling that most Caress products have. It’s difficult to explain exactly but it’s a very nice smell! I especially love the fact that even after stepping out of the shower the scent does linger for a good while later and you’re carrying that “clean” smell around with you for part of the day! I have to say some of my more expensive shower gels don’t do that!

I’m liking the combination of not only a creamy body wash but also an oil body wash. It’s a very different texture from a standard body wash. It’s not as thick and not as creamy and has more of an oily, soft feel. On your skin it feels amazing! Especially so if your skin is as dry as mine! My skin literally soaks this up!

For under $5 bucks you seriously can’t go wrong purchasing one of these or all three! They are most definately worth popping in your cart during your normal drugstore run. If you’re skin is craving a bit of moisture after a long Winter and it’s ready to be soft, silky, and smooth this might be something you want to try out!

The Muse likey Caress Exotic Oil Infusion Body Washes!

    I love these! Really transport you to an exotic locale while showering. And it’s not the usual flowery or foody. I’m feeling like a Japanese empress! They are rich and moisturizing. I’ve been hoping they’ll come out with matching body lotion. Here’s a tip – I also use them to wash bras in the sink. The spicy scent lingers on the cotton.

    hi Anonymous!

    hehe sounds like you’re having a mighty good showering experience 🙂

    I was thinking a body lotion would be fab. Don’t they have matching soap for these?

    OOOOOOOO! good idea! Thanks for the tip!

    Thanks for the comment!

    I hate that stuff. I had the Dove ‘Cream Oil’ Body wash and it made my body break out like a mofo. I’ll just stick to Kiss My Face soap.
