Odds are you’ve been using the same body wash for years. No shame in that, but have you ever stopped to think about what the best body wash for women actually is? Or wonder if there could possibly be a better one out there for you? Body wash may be the most underrated beauty item in your routine, but it shouldn’t be. It’s the first product that touches your skin, one of the few things you use every day, and practically functions as your signature scent.
Too sweet or too floral and you can end up smelling like bad teen memories, while anything in the woodsy family can err on the side of overly-perfumed. Sometimes it’s all about the extra-bubbly lather or cooling gel; other times, our only incentive to even take a shower is to soothe dry, itchy skin. Either way, your body wash needs to be worthy of the Arctic journey from bed to shower.
At Glamour, our editors are just as particular about the products they use on their bodies as they are about the ones they put on their faces, so we decided to put 23 of the best body washes for women to the test. Here are the ones with our seal of approval.
