The Best Drugstore Body Wash + $250 Walmart Gift Card Giveaway

Today’s post is sponsored by Mirum Shopper. As always, all stated opinions are my honest thoughts.
The women in my life are superheroes. They multi-task with ease and manage to gracefully juggle their roles as businesswomen, mothers, friends, daughters, sisters, and wives or girlfriends. These women are busy and stressed and far from perfect, but they are still heroes in my eyes. While they might worry about being a few minutes late to an appointment or dropping the ball on a work requirement, I stand in awe of their ability to fight through the difficulties in their lives and come out on the other side stronger than ever. 

When I remember my mother, I don’t think about their missteps in life. I remember her as a fierce warrior of life who loved her family with every cell in her body. When my thoughts are drawn to my grandmothers, I can’t help but wonder how they survived the circumstances of their childhoods and still managed to grow into such kind-hearted and giving women. And I look at my mother-in-law and sister-in-law and wonder if I’ll ever be able to balance the responsibilities of motherhood with such grace. These women were and are extraordinary, and as Mother’s Day approaches, I’m trying to think of ways to share my appreciation. 

My first course of action is to give them some well-deserved “me time.” I plan on putting together gift baskets filled with a spa gift certificate and a set of gifts to help them re-create the relaxing experience at home. I’m thinking soft and silky robes, fragrant candles, moisturizing lip balm, and of course, deliciously-scented bath products. While I haven’t finalized everything I’m going to include, I know for sure that each women absolutely must receive a bottle of my current favorite shower gel. Over the past month, the new line of body washes from Caress has completely blown me away, so today I’ll be sharing five of my favorite scents with you. Whether you’re looking for to update your current bath products or want an affordable gift idea for the women in  your life, this post will help you determine which Caress body wash is the best fit. P.S. You’ll want to read through the entire post to find out how you can enter to win a $250 Walmart gift card to give yourself a little bit of luxurious pampering.

One of my favorite scents from the new Caress collection is the Pure Embrace Body Wash. It’s scented with white flowers and almond oil and leaves your skin with a soft and feminine fragrance with just a touch of sweetness. In addition to its fresh scent, the lather on this body wash can’t be beat. There’s nothing more frustrating than having to use a huge amount of shower gel to clean your body properly, but a small amount of the Caress Pure Embrace body wash produces the perfect amount of suds with my loofah. If you’re looking for a sophisticated and feminine body wash, the Pure Embrace scent is the perfect fit. As a gift, I’d pair this body wash with a fluffy spa robe, softly-scented candle, and a moisturizing body cream to create a luxurious spa kit for the home. 

If you love rich and mysterious scents, you’re going to love the Caress Sheer Twilight Body Wash. It’s fragrance is laced with black orchid and juniper oil to create a sexy scent with a touch of floral and berry notes. This scent is a fabulous shower gel to use before a night on the town, but if you love deep berry fragrances, it’s also great for everyday use. If you have a strong woman in your life whose personality fills the room, this scent will be the perfect compliment to her abundant charm. Add a bright lipstick, a beautiful bouquet of flowers, and a silk robe, and you’ll have the perfect gift idea for any woman.

If you’re hoping to find a classic scent that isn’t too overpowering, the Caress Daily Silk Body Wash is a great option. Its white peach and orange blossom fragrance is soft and clean scent with a powdery finish, so you’ll feel and smell perfectly fresh after each use. I have a feeling that my aunt and grandmother would fall in love with this timeless body wash. I’d pair this shower gel with a silk robe, a fancy candle, hand cream, and a copy of her favorite book to make a fantastic Mother’s Day gift basket.

The Caress Evenly Gorgeous Body Wash is the perfect choice for the sun bunnies in your life. The subtle burnt brown sugar and karite butter fragrance is a smooth and creamy scent with the perfect dose of sweetness, and it’s a great scent for a day at the beach. I love using this softly exfoliating body wash during the spring and summer to gently remove dead skin, and the soft scent of this body wash is absolutely gorgeous layered underneath my beachy perfumes. If you’re thinking of including this body wash in a gift basket for Mother’s Day or any gift-giving occasion, consider adding in a soft and cuddly blanket, a warmly-scented candle, indulgent chocolates, and a stunning bouquet of her favorite flowers. 

Now that I’ve shared four amazing fragrances with you, it’s time to share my favorite body wash from the line. The Caress Tahitian Renewal Body Wash captures the scent of pomegranate seeds and coconut milk to create a tropical fruit fragrance that’s absolutely perfect for spring and summer. It also has tiny exfoliating beads to gently slough away your dry skin. While I love all of the fragrances in this collection, this scent is the perfect fit for me! For a gift that’s guaranteed to put a smile on her face, add this body wash to a gift basket filled with a delicate silk robe, brightly-colored nail polish, a deeply-hydrating body lotion, and a new pair of fancy sandals. 

No matter what type of gift basket you create, I think that the Caress body wash collection is the perfect addition to any present. And if you’re not currently shopping for presents, you should still run to Walmart to pick up a bottle or two for yourself. The formula and  fragrances in the line are amazing, and the price really can’t be beat. If you’re still on the fence about which fragrance to purchase, take the Caress Personality Quiz to find out which scent is your perfect fit.

    I plan on getting a couple of the body washes. I tried the Vaseline lip balm in cocoa butter you recommended on a previous post and my lips have never looked prettier! I liked your Breast Cancer list of special merchandise to buy to support BCA. Got the pink striped Wet Brush!

    • April 16, 2017 / 8:50 am

      Oh yay! I think you’ll love them. Effective and affordable! So happy that you loved the other items as well. Two of my all-time favorite products. I use my Wet Brush and Vaseline lip balm nearly every day. Thanks for entering!

    Such a great post, Ashley as usual and I really love the packaging of the fragrances. I have always been a huge fan of their products and I love that they come out with more fragrances and the flower oils. They also seem a little bigger which is always nice. The survey is down at this time but I would love to try the Tahitian Renewal fragrance and if I’m honest all of the others one, too! xo

    • April 16, 2017 / 8:52 am

      Thanks for the kind words, Starla! I completely agree. Caress has always been a great brand, but they especially knocked it out the park with the new scents. So sorry that the survey isn’t working, but you are still entered. Thanks so much for entering!

    Oh how I love a fragrant body wash!! With 3 kids under 4, my daily shower time is a pretty big deal lol. For some reason the link to the quiz wasn’t working for me, but I totally plan on picking up the Tahitian Renewal and the Pure Embrace body washes. I’ve used Caress for many years, ever since my nana introduced it to me as a young lady and I always look forward to seeing what amazing scents they’ll have next. I can just imagine a night of pampering and relaxation with a hot cup of tea, smelling good with super soft skin. So excited about this!!

    • April 16, 2017 / 8:54 am

      I can imagine! So sorry that the link isn’t working at the moment – not sure what’s up with the website. Your plan sounds amazing, and I love that your nana introduced you to the line! Grandmothers ALWAYS give the best beauty advice! Thanks for entering!

    These sound really nice! I’m always looking for another good drugstore option! thanks for sharing~

  12. April 16, 2017 / 8:59 am

    I quiz seems to be down but that don’t matter because I already know which Caress I love and that’s the Evenly Gorgeous. I love smell of it and how soft and elegant the fragrance with a little bold kick. To bad my mother and mother-in-law is not into stuff like that. It would of made my gifting options easy and personal. My mother is a avon fanatic and stay stocked up with skin-so-soft products and avon body wash. I at time raid her stash and she never notice because she has more products then the avon lady. Lol. My mother-in-law like to use this strong lye soap from who know where it’s large enough to be sliced in four quarters and each slice last about two months. The sent is extremely bold citrus or rose and extremely harsh on the skin. I had used it one time just to see why she loves and ran to CVS to get me a bar of Caress. That lye soup left me so dry and irritated parts I did not need irritated if you get my drift. I have to find gifts I know these ladies gonna use because flower every year is getting old.

    • April 17, 2017 / 10:48 am

      My apologies that the quiz is down at the moment. I agree – Evenly Gorgeous is such a wonderful scent! Yikes- that soap sounds like a nightmare. Definitely stick to Caress! Maybe she’d like a gift certificate for a massage or a fancy robe? Good luck with the gifting and thanks for entering!

    My comment didn’t post; instead posting part of an address, so I am reposting here: I could not find the quiz either. All of Caress’ scents sound intoxicating, but since I need some exfoliation, I choose Tahitian Renewal. Thanks for this amazing giveaway!

    • April 17, 2017 / 10:46 am

      So sorry- not sure why that’s happening. Tahitian Renewal is a fantastic choice. Such a fun scent for spring and summer. Thanks for entering!
