Best of Summer: Body Wash

Despite a little June gloom, it is officially too hot in Los Angeles, and to top it off–our A/C just isn’t pushing cold air out.  The best place to be right now in my house is the shower!  I’ve rounded up some of the most delicious and refreshing shower gels and body washes summer has to offer that make beating the heat that much more tolerable on every budget.  These are the body washes and shower gels to look for to beat the heat and stay fresh:

Suave Naturals Mango Mandarin Body Wash — With a fragrance that rivals those of high-end body care products, this guiltless shower gel indulgence smells like you purchased it at the mall, but you saved the change to buy a new pair of summer sandals instead!  What could be even better?  There’s currently a coupon available for more savings on the Suave website.

LaLicious Passionfruit Lime Whipped Body Soap and C.O. Bigelow Lemon & Pomegranate Body Wash — Both of these tangy citrus body cleansers scream to be squeezed!  Antioxidant rich and hydrating, these left our skin soft and kissable, and smellin’ fresh.  With creamy textures instead of classic gel consistencies, these are a must for dry skin types.

Tone Daily Detox Purifying White Clay & Pink Jasmine Body Wash — Ever feel like there’s a layer of gunk stopping your skin from looking it’s best?  Tone takes eliminating the grime to a new level with skin purifying kaolin to help skin detox and purge itself of impurities that steal your glow.  It smells INCREDIBLE, and there’s also a $1 off coupon available on their site right now!

Dial NutriSkin Grape Seed Oil & Lemongrass Body Wash — Crisp and refreshing, NutriSkin is a winner.  Aside from the great fragrance, we loved this one because of the hydrating fruit oil beads suspended in the formula and the rich lather it created.

Bath & Body Works Butterfly Flower Shower Gel — I’m guilty of being stuck in a Bath & Body Works bubble, I tend to buy the same fragrances every time I’m there (Cucumber Melon, anyone?).  Last time I was in–I checked out Butterfly Flower and it’s the perfect summertime layering scent with mimosa, orchid, and tangerine.  It might be my imagination (or wishful thinking), but I could swear I smell just a little banana in there too.  Divine!

Any of these sound good to you?  What body washes and shower gels do you find are the most refreshing?
