Think getting clean in the shower is all about a basic bar of soap? Think again! We’re bringing you our favorite body washes and soaps so you can make your shower the best part of your day!
As you’re well aware of by now, summer is in full swing! So that means that it’s hot out and you’re getting pretty sweaty, pretty quickly — meaning you need to shower a lot. But you also have to make sure your skin isn’t just clean — it should be moisturized and smell amazing, too! There are tons of body washes and soaps to choose from, so we’re bringing you some of our favorites to make choosing the right one for you a little easier!
Best Body Wash Picks — Sweet Scents
Of course, a body wash’s first job is to get you nice and clean — but it should also smell great, too! Some of our favorite body washes can transport us to a tropical location with just one whiff. We love Dial Coconut Water Body Wash because it makes us feel like we’re sitting on a beach and sipping Mai Tai’s — plus, it doesn’t hurt that it leaves our skin nice and hydrated. We also are big fans of Caress Tempting Whisper Body Wash — it smells like lush plums and peonies! The scent lingers all day, so we can forgo perfume when we use it.
Best Multi-Tasking Body Washes
Of course we love exotic scents, but we’re also busy girls and need products to give us multiple skin benefits in just one wash. We’re big fans of Olay Body Ultra Moisture Body Wash With Shea Butter. There’s an entire jar of moisturizer in each bottle so it hydrates our skin beautifully while smelling like yummy shea butter. Plus, the bottle is huge so you get major bang for your buck. We also recommend Demeter Pick-Me-Up Shower Gel because it’s paraben and artificial color free, and still gives us super hydrated skin. Also try Yes To Grapefruit Rejuvenating Body Wash. The fruit acids exfoliate our skin, and the scent gives us a great morning boost.
Best Soap Bars
While we love our loofahs and body washes, every now and then we’re lured by the simplicity of a nice bar of soap. For a luxurious shower experience, try Desert Essence Creamy Coconut Soap Bar. It’s vegan, yet still gives a creamy later and smells amazing. Also try out Yardley London Mango Cream Bar Soap for a tropical experience in a tiny little bar.
