Suave Naturals Lavender Vanilla Body Lotion & Wash

I picked up some of Suave's newest body lotions and body washes last month at Meijer, and today I want to rave about them! There are 3 new scents, Lavender Vanilla, Cherry Blossom, and Mango Mandarin. I chose the Lavender Vanilla and Cherry Blossom, and while I've only used the Lavender Vanilla so far, the Cherry Blossom smells equally delicious.

Suave Lavender Vanilla Body Lotion 18 fl. oz.: The scent is light and long lasting, while the formula is rich, thick, and quick to absorb with no greasy feeling. The quality of this lotion is much nicer than their older formula. It's very silky, it moisturizes extremely well, and I can't say enough about how wonderful this smells! The vanilla mixed with the lavender is a soothing scent, and it's light enough that it would pair nicely with similar fragrances, should you want to wear a perfume or body spray.

Suave Lavender Vanilla Body Wash 12 fl. oz.: This product has the same long-lasting, soothing scent as the body lotion. In addition to lathering up nicely in the shower, I've also used this in my bath to create an oasis of tranquility filled with calming bubbles. It rinses clean, leaving me with soft skin and no dryness. I love lavender as a relaxing fragrance, although it's hard to find a nice one that's not too medicinal smelling. Sauve may have created my perfect lavender scent with these products.

Suave compares these products to Bath & Body Works products, and while I remain a big B & BW fan, the Suave products may be even better. The scent seems to last longer on me, and more importantly, the Suave body lotion leaves zero greasy residue, which is something I do notice with certain B & BW lotions. If you want to feel pampered and feel like you're using a product that's high-end (but with a low cost), you might want to check these out. They're available at Walgreens and Walmart, as well as other drug store chains for less than $3.00 each. I found a coupon here on the Suave web site to download a $1.00 coupon for their body lotions.

  1. I'd love to try the Mango-Madarine, sounds sweet :-)

  2. I haven't tried these, however I was told by my salon lady to try their shampoo. I was amazed how good they are ( I have the one with Almonds)and being that I've used everything from Biolage-which is still my No.1- to Pantene, etc. I think these are fantastic
