I love body washes,but I've never seen a refill. My favorites are from Avon or Bath and Body Shop in the mall.

Thats y i was looking for a cheaper route.

I love all various scents you can buy at the mall, but they are expensive. The best value I have found is on the shelf at the places like Target or Wal-Mart. Watch the ads and save your coupons. If you're lucky, you can find a buy one get one free on the regular sizes.

My skin can be so sensitive that I have to really watch what I use. I had been using Oil of Olay body wash without any problems-- I would buy the largest size possible at either Sam's Club or Walmart. (Some of the mall brands would cause rashes so I tried to stick to the tried-and-true)

I happened to stay at a girlfriend's house over a long weekend and forgot to bring my body wash and she uses the Equate (Walmart's generic) version of Oil of Olay. I went ahead and tried it-- and viola! NO PROBLEMS!! My DH claims that the smell is very close too. I had tried cheaper soaps in the past and had tons of trouble.

It sure is a lot easier to pay $2 for a big bottle than $7!!

I like the body washes at Bath and Body Works-yes,they are expensive. But I try to be flexible and buy what's on sale. They often have buy one get one or a deal where you buy a bubble bath and get the sane scent body wash free. I've tried lots of different scents this way. Mango is ny absolute favprite.

I love nice smells, but can't stand any fragrance up close. I bought some Tide with Downy one time and couldn't sleep in my own bed for burning eyes. I wrote the company and got almost double the cost in coupons. I buy everything fragrance free if I can.

Lots more out there with searching......

Try hotel supply stores too.

You can also just buy gallon size of cheap shampoo, and use it as body wash. Read the ingredients label - its all the same.

wow this is the ans....thanks a lot ...i am now looking for hotel supply stores.

RE: body wash refills

Look for hotel supply places that sell internationally. It is more common elsewhere that hotel rooms put the complimentary shampoo and body wash in wall dispensers in the shower rather than supplying those dinky little plastic bottles of the stuff. Less waste and less stuff going into landfills.

A lot of places sell in the half gallon size for body wash like the Aveda Rosemary mint body wash:

RE: body wash refills

I know for sure you can buy cheap shampoo and use it as body wash. In motels and in hospitals they give out bottles labelled "Shampoo and Body Wash".

RE: body wash refills

That's because no one would believe that shampoo and body wash are the same. I don't know if it is or not. The ingredients may be the same but not the amounts. I believe shampoos are all the same, the only difference is added things like fruit, etc. If you could separate the shampoo from the additives that sell it, you would just have a big pile of mold.

Huh?? Could you elaborate?

RE: body wash refills

A scientist said something about there not being much difference in shampoos, cheap ones are just as good as expensive ones, etc.. Then he said If you take all of the shampoo out of the bottle, the rest would be a lump of moldy fruit. It other words it doesn't add anything beneficial to shampoo.

RE: body wash refills

A link please??

Shampoos are formulated with a PH so that they do not grow mold. How would one separate shampoo from moldy fruit?

All shampoos are not the same. Cheap ones make the hair frizzy and brittle. Or they can make the scalp flake. If they were all just nothing but detergent and all the extras added were unnecessary we could all just wash our hair with Dawn.

I'm not saying you cannot get a decent bottle of shampoo at the dollar store that is just as good as some of the higher priced ones but it has nothing to do with "moldy fruit" being in shampoo that does nothing for you hair.
