It's time for Summer Skin! #imabzzagent #review

Summer is coming! And that means it's time to tame the beast - shave those legs, paint those nails, and get rid of those icky winter feet. And most importantly, get your skin soft and smooth and ready to show off!

I have perpetually dry skin, so I'm always on the lookout for a product that can give my skin the nutrients it needs and keeps it healthy and vibrant. When I was told I was going to be able to try out the NEW Tone Petal Soft Body Wash, I was over the moon!  I've never been a huge fan of body wash, I'm more of a bar soap girl. After doing some research, I found out that it actually comes in bath bar form too! Call me a happy bar soap girl! I'll be giving that one a try real soon!

Natural and essential oils are all the rage right now for moisturizing. I've jumped on that train too with Jojoba Oil, Coconut Oil, and a variety of essential oils. Nothing seems to work better to soften skin than replacing the natural oils that it's missing. The moisturizing Tone Petal Soft body wash uses rose oil to help your skin be soft and beautiful!  I think it probably adds to the amazing flowery fragrance too.  Check out the health benefits of rose oil here.  The scent is sweet and fresh, but not overpowering. I don't really want to walk around smelling like a bouquet of flowers!

Aside from the beautiful scent, this body wash actually holds up really well against other, more expensive, moisturizing washes that I've tried.  It goes on smooth and silky, a bit oily.  It lathers up like the most bubbly bubble bath, but washes away easily and thoroughly, leaving only soft skin and a refreshing scent...no residue!  And after about two weeks, I can actually feel a difference in my skin.  It's smoother and softer.  I'm using less lotion and I smell amazing while I'm at it!  I liked it so much, I went and bought the Ocean Therapy Body Wash Deep Sea Extracts and Pearl Essence with Vitamin E to try too!  I haven't gotten to it yet, since I'm still enjoying the Petal Soft Pink Peony and Rose Oil experience.  But I can't wait to see what the precious pearl, sea kelp and Vitamin E can do for my skin too!

The entire line of Tone Body Washes use high quality, spa inspired ingredients like oatmeal, shea butter, cocoa butter, mango, papaya, Vitamin E, sea kelp and more!  Check out all of their spa-day-every-day washes!

Vino Moisture Body Wash Crushed Grapes and Shea Butter with Vitamin E

Daily Detox Body Wash White Clay and Pink Jasmine with Vitamin E

Fruit Peel Body Wash Alpha-Hydroxy Fruit Acids

Ocean Therapy Body Wash Deep Sea Extracts and Pearl Essence with Vitamin E 

How do you know which one is right for you and your skin?  Head over the the Tone site, choose your spa experience (i.e. exfoliating, detoxifying, moisturizing, soothing, etc.), and let Tone show you which products will work best for you!

And honestly, you can't beat the price!  High quality ingredients that are actually good for your skin, at a discount body wash price...I'm sold!  My local Target had all the body washes at $2.79 for an 18 oz bottle.  They are also available at Walmart, Walgreens, Family Dollar, CVS and more.  Check out the Tone site for more info.
