7 OF BEST SHOWER GELS FOR MEN
WHY YOU SHOULDN'T USE SOAP AND WHY YOU SHOULD AVOID THE SUPERMARKET OFFERS
Showering is a necessary part of our daily routine, so it’s something we should give more thought into when purchasing the products we use. It’s important to not just use whatever you find on offer when you visit the supermarket. Don't use soap either - it can strip your skin of its natural oils unlike a good shower gel, not to mention your scent will be better too. Through a series of different factors, you need something suited to your skin type as well as something that lathers well and is easy to dispense whilst in the shower.
Origins Purifying Charcoal Body Wash
This is a great shower gel for a deep clean - with its main ingredient being Bamboo Charcoal. Other ingredients include clove and wintergreen leaves so your skin is left fresh and alive. This also acts as a great wash if you suffer with back acne - you will breakout after the first few washes but afterwards your skin will be feeling pure and deeply cleansed.
The Body Shop White Musk Sport Hair & Body Wash
Another of the citrus favourites, with a musky masculine edge this also works as a hair and body wash too. However, despite the convenience of a 2 in 1 we would recommend you continue to use your trusty shampoo for your hair. With a lasting smell you’ll feel fresh, recovering you from the day you left behind and post work out.
Acqua di Parma Colonia Shower Gel
For both men and women this shower gel is a modern and refreshing wash of Sicilian citrus, jasmine and Bulgarian rose, with wood tones throughout - perfect for a masculine scent. As far as the effects for your skin goes, it contains coconut oil and wheat protein so you’re left feeling smooth and soft.
Onnit Zen Spice Castile Body Wash
If you’re vegan or see yourself as earth friendly, this is the most zen of body washes available. The description alone is enough to make you believe you’ll feel like you’re sat under an Eucalyptus tree. With fragrances of thyme, bergamot and red grapefruit, it’s made from pure coconut oil, leaving your skin much more hydrated than your regular bar of soap - as well as being biodegradable and having not been tested on animals - you’ll actually look forward to taking a shower.
Clinique Happy For Men Body & Hair Wash
If you want something to really wake up your senses in the morning, this will certainly do it. With a zesty citrus burst it will lather up to waken you for the day ahead - as well as refreshing you after a sweaty work out too. Not only is it a body wash but it also doubles as a shampoo should you forget your essentials.
ManCave Cedarwood Shower Gel
If you’re prone to irritation and have sensitive skin which often gets irritated, this body wash will soothe away all kinds of skin conditions. Whilst being gentle on the skin it also gets you squeaky clean. It contains black pepper oil to keep your skin soft and fresh whilst also retaining your natural oils on your skin, so that impurities won’t get in.
Old Spice Dry Skin Defense
This shower gel will give you long lasting hydration. This works to both clean deeply and to moisturise, saving time and energy in the mornings. If you want something with a strong fragrance then we wouldn’t recommend this, however if you're looking for an effective product for both cleaning and for relieving itching of dry skin, this won’t fail you.
