The Best Body Washes for Men
A good shower is a form of self-care
Whether you get down with grooming products or not, a guy’s gotta shower right? (That was rhetorical—you do, you really do). Since it's something you do everyday, you might as well enjoy it as much as you can. And the easiest upgrade you can make is to find a really great body wash. No longer just a simple liquid soap, the best body washes can awaken your senses in the morning or soothe you to sleep in the evening with luxurious essential oils. They can hydrate and heal dry, irritated skin. They can wake you up quicker than a double-shot espressos thanks to a hit of cooling mint. And the really good ones are packaged in handsome bottles that make even the simplest of showers look like a million bucks. The question is ... what style suits your personal shower tastes?
