10 Blissful Body Washes

Escape with One of These Body Washes

By

It’s hard to get yourself out of bed in the morning, but knowing you can escape on a tropical vacation once you hit the shower may make it a little easier. OK, not really a vacation, but the way some of the latest body washes smell make it seem that way.

Body washes are a great way to treat yourself without breaking the bank. You can use a body wash alone, on a wash cloth or on my favorite, a bath lily. A dime size dollop is all you need to get oodles of bubbles and a great start to your day.

Here are ten of my favorite body washes.
