Who Makes Soft Whisper and Power Stick Products?
Soft Whisper and Power Stick brands are made in the USA by A.P. Deauville, LLC. This company has made personal care products since 2001. They purchased the Power Stick brand from Unilever and started marketing this as a value brand for men.
In 2010, they introduced the Soft Whisper line for women. In addition to the main company website, the company also has a product site at power-stick.com.
Back in 2014, I bought a bottle of the Soft Whisper body wash at my local Dollar General. It was only $1.00 and I thought it smelled good, so I thought I would let Amanda try it. I had bought another value-brand body wash a few weeks earlier that was terrible. So I wasn’t expecting much.
Well, I was pleasantly surprised. This stuff was actually pretty good! It had a good lather and like I mentioned before, it smelled very good as well. I had never bought a body wash that was that good for that cheap! Not only was it just $1.00, but it came in an 18 oz bottle as well.
The varieties shown in the photograph are Island Nectar, Brown Sugar Honey, and Pomegranate Sparkle. The first bottle I bought was Caribbean Mist but I can no longer find this variety at the store. The bottles say “Limited Edition”, so I suspect that these fragrances will not be around forever. The bottles also say “If you like Bath & Body Works, Try Me !” I know that Bath & Body Works stuff smells good and this Soft Whisper body wash does as well.
Amanda smelled of the Brown Sugar Honey and she said “I would be afraid to use that.” I asked her why. She said ” because bees might get after me!”. It smells like real honey. You will want to dip your chicken nuggets in this stuff but don’t try it !
As of April 2015, the Soft Whisper Body Wash page shows that the current body wash scents are Cucumber Green Tea, Citrus Sage, Pomegranate Lemon Verbena, and Nectarine White Ginger. The antiperspirant/deodorant choices include these scents and Nectarine White Ginger. This body wash must be similar to Dove, because the bottles say “IF YOU LIKE DOVE, TRY ME”.
After I learned about A.P. Deauville and their products, I also had to try the men’s Power Stick line.
The deodorant is my new favorite brand. It is not fancy, but it smells nice and it gets the job done. What I like the most is that it only costs $1.00 at my local store. It is good enough that I cannot justify buying anything but this product for my deodorant needs.
The shower gel products that I have tried are great as well. As with the deodorant, they smell nice and get the job done at a very low price. I bought the 3 in 1 body wash-shampoo-conditioner for a buck at my local discount store. You can’t beat that. Power Stick is now my number one choice for everyday use. For special occasions, I use Old Spice Fresh Fraicheur. I love the way it smells, but it is quite a bit more expensive than the Power Stick and unfortunately it appears to be discontinued. I will look for a new high-end body wash for special occasions but will continue to use Power Stick for day-to-day washing.
The fact that these products are made in the USA is a big plus in my book.
Support America and save money at the same time!
