This Best-Selling Drugstore Body Wash Makes Your Skin Feel SO Soft--& It's Only $5!

As someone with very sensitive skin, finding a body wash that is non-irritating but still offers an appealing scent is not always an easy feat. This is especially the case when I’m shopping in the drugstore, which is where I usually find my shower essentials. My go-to body wash is usually CeraVe’s Fragrance-Free Ultra Gentle Body Wash, but I decided to switch things up after reading about the moisturizing and nourishing benefits of Olay’s Moisture Ribbons Plus Shea + Manuka Honey Body Wash.


TRY IT: Olay Moisture Ribbons Plus Shea + Manuka Honey Body Wash ($5.49)

The deeply-conditioning formula wraps skin in a luxurious, rich lather and delivers a dose of softening and hydrating goodness thanks to ingredients like shea butter. Its moisturizing formula didn't feel like it was stripping my skin and left it feeling oh-so-smooth in and out of the shower without any redness, itchiness, or irritation. 

I was pleasantly surprised by the Moisture Ribbons Plus Shea + Manuka Honey Body Wash's thick consistency, which felt more whipped compared to traditional drugstore gel formulas. Its scent was also surprising in the best way possible; it has the decadent scent of Manuka honey and smells like something that would be used in a lavish spa.

I'm not the only one that's loving this body wash. It has a perfect 5-star rating at retailers like Target and has quite the reputation among shoppers.

"This body wash smells heavenly. It leaves my skin feeling so soft even after I have dried off, I have has several in the past that feel good in the shower and leave my skin feeling tight when I am dried off. Loved the formula for my skin." - hyde522

"I had never used this Olay body wash before and was not familiar with the Manuka Honey line, so I was excited to try it. I was certainly not disappointed! It is thick, rich and creamy and lathers wonderfully, so a little goes a long way, which is great so you don't run out quickly." - Mermaid10
