Men, never neglect the humble body wash. We’re not talking about plain soap on a rope here, we’re talking about dedicated body washes that won’t dry out your skin, leave you itchy or aggravate your allergies whilst leaving you smelling like dishwashing detergent. You’re better than that and so are these body washes for guys.
So how does one use body wash? Think of it like soft wash hand soap but for your entire body – just don’t use it on your hair like shampoo (we know soap guys do this). You can apply some to your hands and rub yourself down before giving it a rinse or if you want to be more thorough, apply it to a wash cloth or similar body scrubber. Rub it onto your wet skin in circular motions and apply as required. Once you’re done, rinse and the job is finished – you’ll smell like a million bucks without all the itchy red rashes.
The 18 body washes we’ve selected below hail from all parts of the globe from Kiehl’s to Lab Series to Aesop to the high end stuff like Jo Malone. Whatever your budget or preference of body wash, you’re guaranteed to find the right one to slip into your toiletry bag or cabinet. Your white shirts, suits and hot dates will thank you for it later.
