{yummy bfast ~ and ~ body wash review}

My breakfast this morning after dropping Lil Petunia off at school:  the Panera Bread Spinach & Bacon egg souffle'.  Heavenly!

You will not find a bar of soap anywhere in my house.  The showers, tubs, & sinks are so much easier to clean when gel cleansers have been used.  No soap scum on my body or in my shower!

I buy body wash by the dozen because I go through so much of it and this is my favorite brand.  Surprise!  Suave naturals.  In the past I used Bath & Bodyworks brand until I found this deliciously scented copycat and was thrilled with the alternative.  I've tried other brands at the drugstore (Tone, Dove...) , but have always been disappointed and have gone back to this one.  It cleanses with a great scent, a moderate amount of lather, and doesn't leave me feeling greasy, just clean.  I even use it for shaving in between laser appointments.

My favorite scents are Sweet Pea & Violet, Fresh Berry Smoothie, and Tropical Coconut.
Why pay 4 times as much at B&BW for the same product?

Yes! I have found this too! Friends of ours had it when we visited them in DC and I have been hooked ever since although I still love my philosophy scents but I have had to cut back since they are so expensive. I like the green one but can't think of name. I'll have to try something new. :)

I like shower gels too - my favorites are LUSH (any scent) and CO Bigelow (also pretty much any scent)

Jaina said...

That looks delicious!!! I love body wash too. I hate soap.

Well I am going to check out the Suave next time I'm at Target. I also love some of the Boots ones. Btw, I think I have the same plates - in that same pretty blue! Ordered from Ballard a couple years ago. :)

Panera, i love!! I think i've tried that souffle as well and found it really greasy, maybe you got a good one, cuz it looks yummy!

That souffle is my husband's favorite breakfast. He's been begging me to try and make one at home. I think the shower gel thing is very important for us Florida people. I like Suave and I like Ivory's aloe one. It is harder to find but it is the perfect amount of moisture without leaving any residue on your skin. Any other shower gels make me feel like my skin is never clean with our weather.

Isn't Panera addictive! I go every Tuesday with some other preschool Moms. Yum!!

Ha, I went to Panera for lunch today. I love their turkey artichoke sandwich. Yum!!! I'll have to try the soufflé. I've used the Suave body wash. I like the Coconut & Berry. Since I can't bring soaps in my carry on when I fly (such a pain) I usually just pick up my toiletries when I arrive at my destination. Suave is cheap and a good body wash so I don't feel bad when I leave it behind at the hotel. I'm excited to try the shampoo line.

Petunia - Boots is a UK drugstore (I shopped them when we lived in Thailand) and Target is now carrying a lot of their products. Mine has one side of a whole row in cosmetics devoted to them. I LOVE the Bergamot Orange Olive body wash! It is fabu! Also there is a one with Nectarine Vanilla Sugar (I think) that I get sometimes too and a Lemon Walnut hand lotion. They are great :)

I am going the look for the Coconut body wash next time I am out! Sounds great for summer. Thanks for the great idea!

My fave PB souffle is the spinach and artichoke. Yum Yum! I got a coupon for a free Suave product, and I ended up buying the cocoa and shea butter. I absolutely love it. I haven't found another wash (even high end ones) where the fragrance just stays. It really is awesome!

I love the coconut especially in the brutally cold winter months. Makes me think of sunshine, the beach, and warm weather.

Domestic Diva said...

Thanks for that! I am so getting the Tropical Coconut.
Ok , that looks so YUMMY!

Jill said...

The souffle looks SOOO good. I remember you mentioning the Panera souffle on your blog before. I still haven't tried one. Um, I'm getting hungry.

I haven't tried the Suave body wash. I'll have to check it out.

Miss Janice said...

I am a Panera Bread-aholic! I haven't tried that delicous-sounding souffle yet. I simply must. I agree about the soap scum, liquid soaps are great!

Miss B said...

I just found your blog and I'm enjoying it! I will have to try that Suave body wash! I've used their version of the Matrix Smooth & Sleek and it's great and so cheap! Who knew?!

Oh, the Tropical Coconut was left at my house by my sister. Wow! Delightful.
