The Best Moisturizing Body Washes Money Can Buy

Say goodbye to dry patches, eczema, or scaly legs.

PeopleImagesGetty Images

As the not-so-proud owner of scaly, always-dry legs, body wash and I have a love-hate relationship. On one hand, there's something so nice about feeling squeaky clean. On the other hand, so many body washes make my sensitive skin feel tight, dry, and itchy when I get out of the shower. Sure, I'm clean, but at what cost? There's only so much a body lotion can do. True hydration starts in the shower, but finding a cleanser that actually removes sweat, dirt, and pollution while still hydrating can be a difficult journey. If your experience with hydrating body washes often includes feeling sticky even after cleansing, or just not feeling all that hydrated, we have some choices that might change your mind.

Whether you're dealing with eczema, are particular about fragrances in your shower, or want to transition into using a cleansing oil, there is a product for you. It's possible to finally rid yourself of those scaly patches that make you feel like a lizard. With the right body wash, your body creams and oils won't have to work so hard. Say goodbye to stripping body washes, and say hello to finally having hydrated skin.
