Favorite Moisturizing Body Washes
Body Washes are a staple in almost every household today. Even guys like them. They’re more sanitary than bar soap, a lot less messy and they smell wonderful. Some body washes may smell great but can strip your skin of natural oils and dry it out, especially during the winter months. I like a body wash that smells great, lathers up easily, rinses clean and leaves your skin feeling soft. I don’t want a scent that lingers so as to interfere with whatever fragrance I’m using. You can spend an arm and a leg on a fancy bodywash or try one of the ones I have listed here can be found at almost any drugstore or pharmacy.
Softsoap Juicy Pomegranate and Mango Infusion
This is one of my favorites for a while now. This has little moisture beads and is enriched with real extract of pomegranate. I just love the tart citrusy smell and the rich later. It’s non drying and leaves my skin feeling smooth and soft. The scent is unisex so men love this one too
Aveeno Skin Relief Body Wash
Aveeno has always been a dermatologists favorite. This is great for winter or for those with dry or sensitive skin. It’s soap-free, dye-free, hypoallergenic and fragrance free. It combines skin soothing oatmeal with emollients to help keep your skin hydrated. When used daily it balances the skin’s pH, keeping it smooth and soft while gently eliminating oils and impurities. This is a good choice for men also.
Dove Purely Pampering Nourishing Body Wash
Dove is the maker of the #1 bar soap in America so it’s a given that their body washes should be top notch too.This ultra-mild formula from Dove is gentler and offers more skin nourishment than most body washes. If you have dry itchy winter skin this a another good one to try. It comes in great fragrances too!
Dial Triple Moisture
This ultra-moisturizing body wash with a creamy blend of shea, jojoba and mango butters leaves your skin soft with no tightness or dryness. My mom had this in her shower the last time I visited and I was delightfully surprised at how good it is. The smell is delicious and it may have the best lather of any body wash out there. Who would have thought Dial would have such a great moisturizing wash.
Alba Botanica Very Emollient Bath and Shower Gel in Midnight Tuberose
With aloe vera, botanical extracts and fragrant herbs that gently cleanse, nourish and moisturize for healthy-looking skin this wash is also hypo-allergenic and pH balanced and contains no parabens, sulfates, or artificial colors. It’s the fragrance however that is the star here. If you love tuberose you will love this! It smells just like the real thing. It doesn’t linger on the skin but makes your bathroom smell heavenly! Just close your eyes and pretend your in Hawaii!
Dove Men + Care Micro Moisture Body and Face Wash
I couldn’t leave the guys out. They have dry winter skin too but don’t exactly like to use lotion after their shower.
This body and face wash with micromoisture technology is clinically proven to fight skin dryness better than regular men’s body wash. It has great lather, rinses clean and smells amazing.
