MEN’S grooming has come a long way since the days when a good scrub with a bar of soap sufficed.
The best body washes for men now pack a punch with natural ingredients, long-lasting fragrance, and high street to high-end options.
But with so many products available, it can be hard to choose what’s best for you.
Sensitive, dry skin? Pick out a gel that contains natural skin-calming goodies like aloe vera, and avoid any synthetic ingredients and fragrances.
Whether you’re looking for a multitasking all-in-one hair and body wash, a product that’s luxurious and indulgent, or an affordable everyday option, we’ve got you lathered.
We’ve tracked down the best body wash for men below, so you’ll want to lather, rinse, repeat more than ever.
