FOO REVIEW – THE 5 BEST SHOWER GELS/ BODY WASHES FOR WOMEN

A few years ago, I stopped using soaps completely. I only keep them available in the restrooms in case the hand wash containers are empty. Kids, you know! They take hand washing to another level altogether!

As you know, body washes and shower gels are very similar to each other. They are both cleansing products in liquid form that can be used with a loofah or a sponge. Both these cleaners are usually used for your skin from neck to toe.

The only minor difference, between the two, is their texture. While body washes are liquid soaps, shower gels are sometimes thicker and gel-like in their consistency. Body washes are meant to moisturize normal skin while shower gels are apparently good for oily or acne prone skin. Though I do not have acne or oily skin, I still use shower gels too.

You can browse or buy some of the shower gels/body washes on Amazon here.

HOW TO USE A SHOWER GEL/ BODY WASH!

  • If using a loofah, first dampen it with warm water.
  • Pour a good amount of the liquid onto your loofah (or in your palm).
  • Rub the same against your skin while it lathers up.
  • Scrub lightly and exfoliate all over your body, but do not scrub too hard.
  • Rinse off.
  • Apply an organic body lotion to lock in the moisture of your clean and dry skin.

While there are plenty of other shower gels and body washes women use, I love these best. B&BW’s Warm vanilla Sugar was my favourite in Kuwait actually. The rest I have used or am currently using in India. Is there any other brand that you suggest I try?

Do you use soaps? Which is your favourite shower gel or body wash?

  1. Need to try Body Shop and Wow body wash. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I have used Fiama Di Wills bathing gel and that is also great. Shall try the warm Sugar one as winters are approaching the goodness of aloe vera will help to retain the moisture of the skin. These are some good recommendations Cindy.

  3. Sumita Mallick says:

    I personally like wow body wash and bath & body one too. But Really nice informations. Sharing with my friends….

  4. Jyoti says:

    You have shared nice list of showe gels. I prefer paraben, SLS and chemicals free body washes for me .

  5. Ruchi Verma says:

    I have tried Liril and Nivea even Mama earth, your list seems great, and heard a lot about Wow body wash a lot!! Thanks for sharing

  6. Dr Bushra says:

    The list sounds intriguing. I’ve used others wow skin science products and they are amazing. The Nivea neem and lemon body wash looks great that works as scrub.

  7. This is a superb list. I personally like nivea n dove but I’m a huge fan of bath n body work products too…. n their range of body washes is really nice.

  8. I have been using shower gel only for a long time now. I feel the soap makes the skin drier, especially after menopause. And facewash ofcourse. You have listed out the best options available in the market.

  9. Alpana Deo says:

    So far Dove has been my favorite body wash. I would like to try Nivea now. Bath & Body Works is also a good brand. Rest, I don’t get here. Good that you explained the difference between body wash and shower gel.

  10. Snigdha says:

    I prefer paraben, SLS and chemicals free body washes for me . You have shared nice list of shower gels.

  11. Shubhada Bhide says:

    Wonderful compilation I have tried a few of these brands and they have always worked well for me especially Body Shop.

  12. All of them seems to be nice but definitely the bath and body works has my whole heart. Plus the flavour is vanilla. Bath and body works really last long and gives you freshness all over the day. Thankyou for the other suggestions too. Would definitely love to try other products.

  13. Humaira says:

    These are the best body washes options for women. The body wash makes skin soft and silky. Great thoughts.

  14. Siddhi says:

    I didn’t know that Liril has a body wash and I loved Wow and Nivea body wash. Fiama is good too and even Biotique was wonderful.

  15. I haven’t tried Wow, I think inwill try that one this time. Thanks for making my cart choices easy

  16. Nidhi KM says:

    I love Nivea as a brand and would love to check it for sure as a body wash. Specially, ours being a travelling family, I love to carry body washes rather than soaps for ease of handling.

    • Swati Mathur says:

      Wow.. Well compiled list. I use Fiama and used Nivea too. Would love to try others for sure. Thanks dear for sharing with the complete description.

  17. Mrinal Kiran says:

    I have tried most of these but I would love to try the liril one! It seems interesting! Thank you for the list!

  18. This is a well-curated list of good shower gels. Nivea is one of my favourites, as it is a brand with the hallmark of quality.

  19. Shreemayee Chattoppadhyay says:

    I’m also in shower gels nowadays. And you’ve mentioned almost all of my favorite brands.

  20. Ghazala Naseem says:

    I prefer shower gel over soaps as they are more moisturizing and prefer the ones with citrus fragrances 🙂
    Have used those Liril ones.

  21. We have similar choices I must say, I have used all these brand and all are good in their own way.

  22. Loved the review. Not a fan of body washes as i am always on the run and dont have time for indulging. Looking forward to trying these.

  23. Arti Singh says:

    Boss , Every time I read your review I end up shopping….. This is again adding a lot of stuff to my cart….

  24. Sanandita says:

    Bath and Body Works has to be my favourite followed by The Body Shop. Currently am using both of them along with Dove.

  25. […] Cindy has an interesting post on THE 5 BEST SHOWER GELS/ BODY WASHES FOR WOMEN […]
