Like with everything else, more & more people are looking for a more natural method to take care of themselves whether it is in their diet, hair products and/or body care. By using a more natural formula, like an oil infused body wash, consumers can enjoy a gentler way to moisturize, protect & clean your skin all in one. Here is a list of alternative body care products formulated with jojoba oil and/or Vitamin E:

Oatmeal & Lavender Foaming Body Wash

If you are looking for alternatives with Avon, using bath oils from Skin So Soft Original collection will be the best match since the Original collection uses similar formula of jojoba oil & Vitamin E. I would also recommend Avon’s Moisture Therapy Derma Soothing Body Wash. This is a mild body wash infused with Vitamin E, soothing aloe & chamomile.

My Pros:

  • Didn’t irritate or dry my skin
  • Skin felt smooth & moisturized even before applying body lotion
  • A fresh, clean scent that was not over powering
  • Easy to use pump
  • Actually able to use 99% of the product
  • A little goes a long way

My Cons:

  • Had to do multiple washes when extra dirty or sweaty
  • Super lightweight that at times didn’t feel like I soap stayed long enough to clean vital areas such as arm pits, private areas & feet.
  • Had to step out of water to get a full lather so water did not wash away soap


One of the many benefits of shopping Avon online is that you are able to check out what other customers have to say about a product. Here are what some customers said about Skin So Soft Original Oil-Infused Foaming Body Wash:

Candy Bk4Life from Pittsburgh, PA: 5/5 Stars

“Its the only thing I use in the summer time smells great and the mosquitos hate the smell and I use it on my window screens.”

Josie from New York, NY: 5/5 Stars

“Smells great. Lighter than the gel shower wash. Lathers up lightly and washes off easily. I love this product.”

Dr. Linda from St. Louis, MO: 3/5 Stars

“This is a great product but using it in the shower in It’s current package is tough. With wet/slick hands you cannot remove the cap, pump and then replace the cap. Needs a pump that is exposed and doesn’t require holding the container.”

Dreci from Chesapeake, VA: 3/5 Stars

“Only works with your hands. If you’ve had a hard day outside, gardening or at the beach, use a good cleansing soap before you use this. I would only use it after cleaning with another soap, to layer the fragrance with the oil. A wash cloth just eats up the lather, so the lather is caused by the dispenser and is not genuine.”

Tlady from Houston, TX: 1/5 Stars

“I really dont like the product. Not much scent and lather. Very disappointed.”

According to the Skin So Soft Original Oil-Infused Foaming Body Wash product page on www.avon.com, 50% of customers who reviewed the product would recommend this product to their friend & the average rating is 3.3 stars out of 5 stars.

My Final Thought:

Image result for avon skin so soft original oil-infused foaming body wash

When I began using the Skin So Soft Original Oil-Infused Foaming Body Wash, I was looking for a lightweight body cleanser for the summer. Normally I use Avon Senses Shower Gels or Skin So Soft Creamy Body Washes which are thicker & heavier. Upon looking into the benefits of this product I felt this was a great choice to try out for my summer body cleanser, especially with it being formulated with:

  • Jojoba Oil is extracted from the Simmondsia Chinensis shrub fruit. The seed of the fruit contains a liquid wax consisting of Vitamin E & phospholipids, which is hypoallergenic, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial & non toxic. (Head, 2014) What makes Jojoba so incredible is that it is very similar to our own natural skin’s oils.
  • Vitmain E is a fat-soluable antioxidant that “is well known in the cosmetic world for its skin benefits… (Stephens, 2018) Due to it being an antioxidant, Vitamin E is a great anti-aging ingredient that also is known to help with brown spots & rough skin.


I honestly have a mix review regarding this product. On paper this product looked like the answer to what I was looking for as a summer body wash as a mid 30 year old busy work at home mom. Yes, the pump made it super easy to use. What I loved most about the pump was that I was able to literally use all of the product. (See image). Being a mom of 6 kids, I have always been one that looks to get the most out of every dollar spent so seeing that I didn’t have that stubborn layer of product that I had to fight to get out, I was truly impressed. As a busy mom, there are days that I am lucky if I get two minutes to shower, so not having to fight or struggle to use the product, I was all for it. I did notice, though, that many consumers complained about the product being hard to manage, especially when it came to taking the cover off. I honestly just left my cover off. I have a shelf on the wall of my shower so I popped my Skin So Soft Original Oil-Infused Foaming Body Wash on the shelf and all I had to do was pump the product into my hand. I do understand those who did struggle due to being one who prefers to have the cover on when it’s not in use and/or don’t have a shelf on the shower wall to keep it.

Now to where I have my mixed review. It’s the actual product itself. On days that I had my normal dirtiness this product did it’s job exactly as it should. I was able to clean my body from head to toe. I would pump into my hand as I lathered myself from top to bottom. I would actually use less product then I would normally do when I used my normal Avon Senses Shower Gels or Skin So Soft Creamy Body Washes. What I loved even more so was how light & hydrated my skin would feel when I got out of the shower. Remember, I was looking to find a body wash I could use in the summer. So, having my skin feel light & hydrated during the hot summer days, it felt refreshing.

Now onto what I didn’t care for… as I said I was using this as my summer body wash. So as you can imagine, on those really hot days or whenever I had to do yard work, this body wash, I would have to use double to triple the amount of product I would normally use in order to feel clean. On top of that, the really dirty areas of your body where it gets really sweaty, I actually had to use my normal Skin So Soft Creamy Body Wash (that was what I had at the time).

Skin So Soft Soft & Sensual Oil-Infused Foaming Body Wash - 2

I noticed the first time I didn’t use my normal body wash in those tough areas, especially on super hot days or when I had to do yardwork, I didn’t get that refreshing feeling when I first got out of the shower and my body was quicker to feeling yucky sweaty within an hour. As a mom of a family of 8,  I don’t have time to take multiple showers in one day. Plus, having only one bathroom in our house with 3 teenagers, let’s just say our bathroom is very busy.

I would personally recommend this product to those who may not sweat as much or during the time of year where you won’t be so sweaty & dirty. As I said, with my normal day to day dirtiness, the Skin So Soft Original Oil-Infused Foaming Body Wash worked perfectly. However, if you are someone that has a strong body odor or sweats alot, this is not the product for you. You need something that has a much stronger scent and has a thicker formula so you can get those sweaty areas really clean. No one wants to be known as the smelly person in the office! I personally hate any type of sweatiness sensation, so if you are like me, then I would recommend only using this when you are not super sweaty or find another body wash all together.
