We think that body wash deserves much more attention than it generally gets. We probably use it every day and it greatly impacts our shower experience, whether it be from its pleasant texture, delightful scent or visible result on the skin. You may want it to simply cleanse the skin, or you may be more ambitious and want it to do it all, from cleansing to scrubbing. One thing is for sure: regardless of the texture, every one of the following deeply cleanses the skin all the while leaving it soft and supple. Take your time to choose the perfect body wash for you, and elevate your shower experience to the next level!
