Body wash is probably the one product that gets the most action in our beauty routines. So finding the right formula for your skin is almost as important as washing it in the first place. Whether it be a foam, gel, or bar soap formula, body wash can truly make all the difference in softer, smoother skin—and basic washes just won’t cut it. Scroll on for the 9 washes worthy of a spot in your shower #shelfie.
After one whiff of this coconut-scented foam wash, you’ll be hooked. A cocktail of shea butter, honey extract, coconut oil, and sweet almond oil enrich the skin with Vitamin E, while lightly washing away dirt and grime.
If your skin is on the sensitive side, you’ll love the creamy, rich lather of Drunk Elephant’s body cleanser with Marula oil that gently rinses dirt without a tacky finish.
The blend of sage, cypress, geranium, and rosemary in this formula energize and refresh skin while sea kelp minerals sooth dry skin and minimizes breakouts.
If you find your cleansers are drying you out, your skin will love Dove’s body wash. The creamy formula immediately leaves skin soft (but not shiny) thanks to jojoba oil, and delivers a rich lather that gently washes away dirt and grime.
This soothing green tea-infused body cleanser is perfect for acne-prone skin, courtesy of pore refining glycolic, and salicylic acid.
Whether you’re indulging in an hour-long bubble bath or quickly rinsing off the day, you need this OUAI body cleanser, which carries a refreshing blend of citrus fruits, rose, and musk scents.
Cleansing oils aren’t just made for your face. When mixed with water, Glossier’s Body Hero (comprised of a blend of seven oils) turns into a frothy lather that attracts dirt and sweat while adding moisturizing oils back into the skin.
With a blend of honey, goat’s milk, and rose extracts, this soap gently cleanses while still coddling and pampering sensitive and reactive skin. Plus, we love the gritty chai and rose petals that help lightly exfoliate.
If there’s any time to treat your skin, it’s in the shower. Byredo’s gel body wash is a cult-favorite luxe option that is both effective in lathering away dirt and a chic supplement to your haircare lineup.
