There has been a lot of controversy of late about bathing. Do you scrub your body from head to toe with soap, or use it only in the “creases” and let the water run over the rest of your body? Or do you shower at all? The debate has been raging and regardless of your stance, you need great body scrubs and body washes at the ready. Today we’re helping with that by diving into 5 of the best body washes for the greatest shower ever.
Showering is a great way to start or end your day. You want the soap you use to give you the best experience possible and this list of 5 of the best body washes, has something for everyone. We have scented, unscented, exfoliating scrubs, and hydrating polishes. I love all these products and feel you need a mix of body washes for different reasons and seasons. It’s great to rotate products so your skin doesn’t get too used to any one product, rendering it less effective.
5 Of the Best Body Washes For The Greatest Shower Ever
I have both very sensitive skin and patches of dry skin on my upper arms. So, I’m always looking for products to help exfoliate my skin; yet, are not overly drying or cause irritation. This gentle exfoliating body scrub from Kiehl’s is amazing. It really does make your shower feel very luxurious. The product contains “exfoliating Apricot Seed particles, (their) unique ‘body-scrubber’ helps remove dead surface skin cells without over-drying.” This product really works and a very little goes a long way, so even though it has a slightly higher price tag for a shower product, it does last a long time. This isn’t something you have to use every time you shower, it can be something you only use once or twice a week. Think of it as a treatment on your dry skin area because you don’t want to over-exfoliate.
This is the perfect everyday body wash. It is a gentle cleanser that is hypoallergenic, and the bottles are now made with 100% recycled plastic. If you’re looking for a mainstay product to keep in the shower-this is what you need. Also, it’s great to have a very clean body wash, as there are many environments you may go into that are sent free. So, it’s nice to have something plain that won’t impact other people negatively. However, the most important thing is that the product works. This body wash is gentle, nourishing, lathers well, and overall performs exactly as you want a great everyday body wash to perform.
Regular readers will know that I am a HUGE fan of Clinique. They regularly appear in my monthly favourite beauty products round-ups, and when I just flat out write about them. Elixir is the oldest pefume from Clinique’s line with its unique earthy, spicy, herbal, yet floral scent. A perfume body wash allows you to layer your scent so it lasts longer. For a special occasion or just for the day you want to feel a little extra fabulous, use your favourite perfume scented body wash followed by a few sprays of the actual perfume and you’ll feel enveloped in your scent without it being over-powering. If Clinique’s Elixir is not your scent, just replace it with the body wash of your favourite perfume.
I love LUSH products – they are all extremely well-made and deliver on all their promises. Plus, they have been carrying the all-natural ingredients, and minimal packaging torch long before it was hip and popular. Honestly, I could brag about any number of their products, but we’re just talking about body wash here. Happy Hippy Shower Gel ticks all the boxes:
- Great for sensitive skin – ✅
- Delightfully citrusy – ✅
- Moisturizing – ✅
- Leaves you squeaky clean and ready to jump into your day – ✅✅
If you like the smell of grapefruit and want to add a little of its zest to invigorate your morning routine, get yourself some Happy Hippy Shower Gel. Plus, how cute is the name Happy Hippy?
This is an economical, yet luxurious choice. The smell is strong when using it, but leaves only a light scent afterwards, so it won’t interact with wearing perfume, or going into a scent-free environment. Enriched with moisturizer, this polish not just gently exfoliates and washes your skin, but also hydrates it. When using this polish your skin won’t feel tight or dry afterwards. This is perfect for helping to give your skin a soft, smooth feel.
Any of these 5 of the best body washes, will give you a great shower experience. Little luxuries, like a great soap, are a wonderful way to pamper yourself. Selfcare can mean carving out time for you to decompress and enjoy something. That something can be taking care of your skin with a luxurious shower or bath experience. Even though it’s August, being kind to ourselves and taking care of ourselves was part of our 2021 New Years’ resolution, and it is one resolution we’ve worked diligently to maintain.
