Best Body Washes For Men

Body washes are essential - and though they’re seemingly simple from the get-go, it’s important to make note of the ingredients within, and what they do. In this article, we’ve selected the best body washes for men, unpacking their key ingredients to ensure you’re using the right one matched to your needs.


Best Body Wash for Acne: Baxter of California Exfoliating Body Wash

Unfortunately, breakouts don't just happen on the face, with other prone spots including the back, chest, and shoulders. The causes are much the same, as sebaceous oils clog the pores on our skin and become inflamed. Oftentimes these oils can get trapped and accumulate in hair follicles. This is exacerbated with sweat, friction, and even the clothes that we wear - which can trap these oils. 

The task of a good body wash in the fight against these spots is twofold: as a preventative, purging the skin of excess oils and acne-causing bacteria is the primary purpose of any soap product, and Baxter’s Exfoliating Body Wash contains a number of gentle cleansing agents suitable for an array of skin types. Moreover, this body wash contains Jojoba Meal, Olive Seed Powder, and Pumice: gentle and non-abrasive scrubbing agents that offer not only a deeper clean as the soap works harder, but excavates oils trapped in the pores as they physically lift and exfoliate hair and dead skin.

This is a gentle product all the same, rich with Glycerin and Jojoba Esters that hydrate the skin, locking moisture into the skin. Combining exfoliation with hydration - it’s a recipe for visibly smooth and texturally even skin.



Best Scented Body Wash: Juniper Ridge

Make good of a daily ritual with an exquisite smelling body wash. And there’s no need to call upon delicate flowers or pot-pourri, as body washes today have discernibly masculine profiles. Juniper Ridge evokes the great outdoors with their concentrated blend of woody and resinous aromatic materials suspended in organic Castille soap - the imagery is plain and simple, where quality scent is hand-foraged, wild-harvested and steam-distilled from some of the most extraordinary places across American nature - from the coastal forests of California and Cascadia to the deserts of the Southwest.

There are many favourites with the Juniper Ridge line. In particular, Coastal Pine blends resinous and sticky pine needles, citrusy conifer and ocean air for a distinctive sense of outdoor freshness. Whilst Desert Cedar blends the sweep raspy note of its namesake wood with a beguiling leatheriness - like towering trees baked in the sun. Smells like this make bathing rituals interesting, and even better, they leave the skin pleasantly perfumed.

We’ve praised Castille Soap many times before, and we’ll say it once again: it is an exceptionally pure, naturally-derived soap made from vegetable oils, making it exceptionally gentle on the skin. It cleanses effectively without stripping away the skin's natural oils, leaving it feeling clean and moisturised.



Best Natural Body Wash: Firsthand Supply Body Cleanser

Formulation is everything for Firsthand Supply, and their Body Cleanser boasts clean, non-toxic ingredients and is free from parabens, sulphates, phthalates, dyes, and always 100% cruelty-free. No sacrifices were made, and is never at the expense of efficacy. Activated Charcoal (which gives the product an attractive pitch black colour), Aloe Vera, and Chamomile Extract gently slews away excess oil and dirt without stripping the skin; leaving the skin feeling balanced. The outcome? Skin is soft, soothed, and refreshed. 

This body cleanser is scented with an essential oil blend of bergamot, lavender, juniper berry, wormwood, and palo santo, producing a subtle earthy scent that extends the sensation of freshness overall - this is one big natural pick me up!



Best Multi-Tasking Body Wash: American Crew 3-in-1 Tea Tree

Sometimes, we just want a product that can do it all - especially if we're pressed for time. American Crew’s 3-in-1 Tea Tree is a shampoo, conditioner, and body wash all in one, achieving this by employing mild cleansers that are each pH balanced. This means that it won't over-cleanse or harm your skin’s natural protective barrier.

We’ve elected this Tea Tree wash in particular for the sheer benefits the ingredient offers for the scalp and the body. With its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic qualities, this natural ingredient purifies and soothes, whilst its calming antifungal properties reduces scalp irritation. Work this product on the body and its refreshing aroma is immediately apparent. It is especially good for oily skin types.

This product is the perfect companion to a gym bag or locker - apply generously and let the product get to work!



Best Body Wash For Dry Skin: Anthony Invigorating Rush Hair & Body Wash

A glance at the ingredients list reveals a product seemingly designed for dry skin, full of ingredients that reinforce the skin barrier and lock in moisture. It cleanses and conditions – as we expect – and is rich with natural vegetable fats and Glycerine. High up on its ingredients list is Panthenol and Allantoin. Panthenol is a powerful humectant, which helps the skin retain moisture. Its emollient qualities further moisturises, improving skin texture in the process. Moreover, Allantoin improves the visible appearance of skin, calming redness and hydrating. Rounding this out, Keratin Amino Acids and Hydrolysed Wheat Protein firms and improves elasticity, preventing skin and hair from drying out

An impressive blend of White Birch extract, Fir Balsam, Eucalyptus, Sage, and Chamomile not only impart a distinctively fresh and woody smell - but boast a symphony of benefits for the skin intent upon repairing and maintaining the skin’s equilibrium. Even better, this product is allergy and dermatologist tested.
