Caress Tahitian Renewal vs. up&up Exfoliating Body Wash

Both of these body washes smell and feel great... making us want to take a beach vacation right now!  We recommend switching to save on this one.

A great dupe by up&up makes for a fun body wash.

Brandefy compares store brands (e.g., Equate) to name brands (e.g., CeraVe) to show you when the store brand is as good as the name brand, and to warn you when it is not. Our purpose is to help you save time and money, and to have a good time while doing it.

With cold weather rolling in, our minds start daydreaming of a tropical vacation.  Maybe that's why we couldn't help but pick these body washes up during the latest Brandefy Target run. It could also be for the bright red color- that made this hard to miss on the shelves!

We smelled and felt both washes before use and liked the scent and exfoliating texture of both. They were extremely similar in these realms.  We were surprised that both washes had a slight grit you would expect with an exfoliating wash simply because Caress tends to do soft soaps, but in no way were either of these rinses harsh. The smell for both was so tropical and delicious- pomegranate and coconut milk!  Someone take us to Tahiti... pretty please!

The ingredient panel was very similar, but not a perfect match.  However, we felt the clean and lasting scent of both the Caress and up&up version were great.  We will be switching to save money here.
