After having the worst possible day, I made my way after work to a fun little shindig hosted by Caress® to celebrate their newest launch Caress® Tempting Whisper™ Fine Fragrance Elixir Body Wash AND to welcome La La Anthony to the Caress® family.

La La is one of my favorite people out there because she is not only gorgeous but a go-getter. I love keeping up with her life on her hit show, “La La’s Full Court Life,” as well as her updates on Twitter. Now, she joins Caress® where she’ll be dispensing weekly tips featuring the latest beauty and fashion trends for their Facebook fans (plus I hear there’s prizing involved!)

Since I religiously stock up on the Evenly Gorgeous exfoliating body wash, I can’t wait to add the new Tempting Whisper™ body wash to my shower collection. At the event, I was able to speak to Nicole Mancini, perfumer at Givaudan, who was integral in creating the fragrance. The body wash has top notes of red plum which is fruity and inviting. The top notes in a body wash is what you smell when you flip the lid open and take a quick sniff and can last up to an hour after applying. After a while the scent transitions into the heart of the fragrance – a beautiful white floral bouquet of wild peony, tuberose and Ylang. This is what you end up smelling when you’ve finished taking a shower and your bathroom starts to smell unbelievably delicious. The dry down, or base, of the fragrance is what you smell after a few hours of wear and it consists of tonka bean and white musk for a fragrance that is playful and sensual. Overall it’s a feminine and sensual scent that makes applying perfume a challenge because I wouldn’t want to cover it up! After playing sniffing around, I’m convinced Caress® should come out with a body lotion to complement the body wash!

The Caress® Tempting Whisper™ Fine Fragrance Elixir Body Wash is available is available at food, drug and mass retailers nationwide for a suggested retail of $3.50 (12 oz.) and $3.99 (18 oz.).

ok not really…but I do have a product I want you all to run out and buy. Immediately.

Not too long ago, I attended the launch of Caress’ Whipped Soufflé Body Washes. The Whipped Soufflé Body Washes are the newest addition to Caress’ body care line and Oh My God, it is amazing.

Caress has partnered up with the Swiss fragrance house Givaudan– whose responsible for some amazing perfumes such as my must have Pretty by Elizabeth Arden- and comes in sweet flavors of blackberry and white peach cream.

The aim was to capture the indulgent texture and scent of dessert soufflé without compromising on hydration. After using this body wash (and bar soap…and I don’t do bar soaps), I must say that it is pretty hard for me to use any other body care product. I am in serious L.O.V.E with the Blackberry Cream, which fills up the bathroom and leaves a gorgeous trail of blackberry essence post shower. This, dare I say it, may even replace my favorite body wash ever (!), which is ironically also by Caress- Caress Evenly Gorgeous.

Available at mass retailers nationwide, this is one drugstore body care product that I’d splurge on anytime (it sells at around $5 a bottle). Go ahead girls, indulge a bit.

For the past two weeks, I have been using one product RELIGIOUSLY! While I’m a firm believer in monogamy, in beauty I’m usually non-committal. What can I say? I’m a serial product tester. 😉

But Caress’ new exfoliating body wash, Evenly Gorgeous, has got me wrapped around it’s curvaceous little bottle. As part of Caress’ new Skinwear collection, Evenly Gorgeous is showing women how to make skin their ultimate fashion statement. Caress Skinwear Collection is a complete line of body washes and beauty bars that give women gorgeous skin that they will want to flaunt.

I never use body washes because most of them leave me sudsy and that annoys me to death because I spend most of my shower time scrubbing furiously rather than just relaxing. So needless to say, I was a little hesitant about using this body wash. But I chalked it up and I’m so so so glad I did.

Evenly Gorgeous contains burnt brown sugar which scrub away impurities and rough patches, while karite butter, soybean oil, and sunflower oil polish and smooth skin. The exfoliating beads aren’t harsh at all against my skin and I find it okay to for everyday use. This product claims to even your skin tone and while I haven’t seen this take effect on me, my skin does have a nice glow after use. The scent it what drew me in. It has a light scent that quickly fills up your bathroom and immediately allows your mind to wander. I’ve found just about any excuse to hop in the shower just so I can use this product.

Oops, I got a pen mark on my wrist…looks like I gotta go take a shower…

It’s that serious. I’m so close to finishing bottle number one (but don’t worry, bottle number two is already waiting). I know I’m onto something and it has been validated when I found out that one of my beauty icons, Kim Kardashian also loved this product, claiming “It literally smells so good you want to eat it!”

To make things more fun, I found out that THE Carson Kressley has teamed up with Caress to help women “make skin the ultimate fashion statement.” Check out, you can enter to win a shopping spree, get free full size samples and share their favorite fashion or beauty tips.
