Have you ever had a body wash you loved so much, you actually can't wait to get into the shower to suds up with it? Such is the case for me with Dr. Bronner castile soaps, especially the soul-soothing lavender scent ($8) pictured above. While luxury body washes can run upwards of $100, you can spend a fraction of the cost to get clean, smell good, and still have lots of funds left over. Find out more about the rest of my picks when you read more.
- Burt's Bees Citrus and Ginger Body Wash ($8) — Mr. Bella loved the refreshing scent so much, I had to hide the bottle from him. Better yet, this cleanser is 97 percent natural.
- Neutrogena Original Rainbath Gel ($6) — Blond Bella's been using this one for years. Not only does this classic product leave the skin moisturized and soft, but it has a clean scent that doesn't smell like fake flowers.
- Tom's Gentle Moisturizing Body Wash ($7) — If aroma's not your thing, try this unscented, gentle cleanser from Tom's.
- Softsoap Black Orchid and Velvet Hibiscus Body Wash ($7) — For those who love creamy-based washes, try this new item from Softsoap, which is actually soap-free. The exotic floral scent smells wonderful (and kind of sexy) in the shower, and lingers very softly on the skin throughout the rest of the day. Better yet? You'll find this one for less (around $4), as it's available at mass retail and grocery stores nationwide this month.
