Product Review: Tone Moisturizing Body Wash (Part 2)

toneDisclaimer: I’m a member of the BzzAgent program and received a free sample of Tone’s moisturizing body wash and some coupons as part of the campaign. The thoughts and opinions expressed in this post are my honest opinion of the product. I was not required to write this review, nor was I compensated for writing it.

A couple of weeks ago I wrote the first part of my Tone Moisturizing Body Wash review, after having used the new Pink Peony and Rose Oil scent from the complete line. When I last left you, I was happy with the results I was getting from using the new scent but I wanted to try another one. On my next trip to WalMart, I picked up a bottle of the Soothing Oatmeal with Shea Butter. The only thing I did wrong was in forgetting to take a coupon for me. That’s OK, though – more for my friends to try.

I was super-excited when I opened up this bottle. I absolutely love the gentle, soothing scent and fount it more calming for my evening bath routine than the previously tried scent (which I’ll reserve for mornings because I find the stronger scent lingers more). Oatmeal and shea butter are known for having great benefits to the skin in terms of soothing and moisturizing, so this combination made more logical sense to me in terms of caring for my sometimes itchy skin, thanks to both cold weather and eczema.

The Soothing Oatmeal with Shea Butter scent was so enjoyable, in fact, I ended up experimenting with different uses. My first experiment involved a bubble bath. I like to take a short bath before I go to bed at night. It’s the perfect opportunity to wind down, wash away the day, and relax with a book before sleep. I firmly believe that a good body wash can and should double as a bath additive and I was not at all disappointed. The Soothing Oatmeal and Shea Butter blend foamed up nicely and added a great, soft effect to the water. My skin was thankful for the extra treatment and felt super-soft after a short soak. (For the record, the Pink Peony and Rose Oil does foam up nicely as well – I tried it later).

My second experiment was in using the Soothing Oatmeal and Shea Butter as a hand wash. I cook a lot at home and I also work with children at the karate school, so I wash my hands quite a bit. I decided to give it a try. I’m sure a lot of you know how harsh constant hand washing can be on your skin on a regular basis, so my hands are recovering from normal washing plus extra harsh weather. The moisturizing impact from the hand wash made me feel less like I needed to turn around and find some lotion to put on right after. So much so, in fact, that I refilled my regular hand wash bottle with the Tone body wash before returning the big bottle to the shower.

A lot of times I try new products with an open mind but, despite liking them, can’t really justify adding them to my regular, daily routine. This wasn’t the case with the Tone Moisturizing Body Wash line. The great scents combined with moisturizing ingredients make this a line of body wash products I plan on using moving forward – especially since they’re easy to find and reasonably priced. This one is a win for me.

Have you ever tried Tone’s line of moisturizing body washes? Right now there are 6 scents. I have never seen all 6 in the same place, but there are usually 2-4 choices depending on the size of the store. The current line consists of Petal Soft with Pink Peony & Rose Oil, Mango Splash with Cocoa Butter, Daily Detox with White Clay & Pink Jasmine, Soothing Oatmeal and Shea Butter, Ocean Therapy with Deep Sea Extracts & Pearl Essence, and Fruit Peel with Alpha-Hydroxy Fruit Acids.
