Softsoap® is my go-to for both body wash and hand soap. It’s affordable and does the job I need it to. Although the warmer months are winding down, there are two newer varieties to keep your skin radiant – Softsoap® Luminous Oils Macadamia Oil & Peony Body Wash and Luminous Oils Avocado Oil & Iris Body Wash. Both have a hint of luxurious oils – macadamia and avocado extracts respectively – that keep your skin glowing and feeling smooth.


Both come in a sleek bottle with a flip top lid. I do actually prefer a pump style bottle in the shower, but that’s me being nit-picky. I use a bath pouf and a light swirl of the body wash was plenty to get a nice, sudsy lather. This is thick body wash, a little goes a long way. I imagine it would be easy to use too much. Both rinsed off well and I felt clean and moisturized. I was a little worried that the addition of the extracts I would feel oily, however both rinsed off well and I felt clean and moisturized without that overly “lotioned” feeling. I think they would both be beneficial during the Spring to give your skin a glow and also during the winter to keep dry skin at bay.


As far as scents, I have a very sensitive nose so I’m often overwhelmed by strong fragrances. These both have a nice  scent without assaulting my nostrils, but I do have to say they were too flowery for my taste.  Those of you that are a fan of peony or iris would find these body washes appealing. I suppose I prefer fruit (Softsoap has a pomegranate body wash I like) or a simple clean scent.

I ran out of hand soap – as I often do – and squirted a bit of the luminous oils body wash in a container and swished it with a bit of water and it worked nicely.
