Looking for a refreshing body wash

Now that summer is in full force I'm in need of a body wash that's going to leave me feeling refreshed at the end of the day. 


I'm *this* close to purchasing a bottle of Lush's Dirty shower gel , but before I do I wanted to find out if there's something else out there that I would enjoy.


My idea of refreshing includes clean, herbal, minty and citrus notes.  Definitely nothing sweet.  I like a strong scent, nothing too subtle. My taste may even verge on masculine.


A few "fresh" shower gels I've tried already:


Lush Dirty Shower Gel - Minty and herbal without smelling like tooth paste - my favorite

Clean Shower Fresh - Love the scent but wish it was stronger and the formula wasn't so runny

H20 Sea Lotus - Okay, but something about it was too artificial for my nose

Bliss Lemon Sage - Pleasant scent, but it wasn't strong enough for me



Re: Looking for a refreshing body wash

I 100% recommend the Jack Black Performance Remedy Turbo Wash Energizing Cleanser for Hair & Body. I originally bought this for my boyfriend because I wanted him to stop using Axe body wash (EW!) and then I fell in love with it too. 


I actually redeemed the men's birthday gift because theirs is a 3 oz travel size of this! So now I have my own to tote along to the gym. I LOVE it! The rosemary, eucalyptus and juniper berry combo smells amazing. Fresh, clean and truly energizing. I feel just awesome when I use this stuff!

Ooooo, I'll have to add this to my list of things to get for my guy, so I can use it. Thanks!

Aveda has a rosemary mint body wash which is really nice and coolingSmiley Happy.  

Re: Looking for a refreshing body wash

I love the Malin + Goetz bergamot body wash.  Very refreshing, and the whole line is unisex, but more geared toward men, I feel.  It smells better than the Bliss Lemon Sage, imo.  However, the M+G body wash isn't super foamy or lathery, if you are into that.  

Re: Looking for a refreshing body wash

kiehl's coriander bath & shower liquid body cleanser is my JAM. god the smell is so good, very fresh but different. a bit masculine but not in any obvious/stereotypical way. so good.

Re: Looking for a refreshing body wash

I am a huge, huge fan of the Trader Joe's Tea Tree Body Wash! It's super refreshing and has tea tree (duh xD), eucalyptus, and peppermint oil!'s only $4? Definitely a good buy if you happen to live near a Trader Joe's!



Re: Looking for a refreshing body wash

Dr Bronner's Castile soap in Peppermint is my fave. Huge 32oz bottle is like $10 and it leaves your skin feeling so tingly and cool. Doesn't smell like anything when rinsed off, but the cooling sensation lasts a while! Also it's all hippie dippie all-natural no nasty stuff if you're into that kinda thing. But seriously even if you don't care about all that (I don't, really) it's still great!  

Re: Looking for a refreshing body wash

I love Dr. Bronner's! I use the Lavender one as a hand soap and I find you can just refill your soap dispenser about a 3rd of the way and fill up the rest with water and it works SUPER well ... Plus then the Dr. Bronner's lasts forever!

OMG yes, for-ev-verrrr!

I got my peppermint a loooooooooong time ago (over 2 years or more) at Trader Joe's for $10 and I'm not even halfway thru.

Re: Looking for a refreshing body wash

Haha I love this!! But it's so true! I've had mine for a year (it's like the second smallest size they offer) and I'm maybe a 3rd of the way through... I was just using it concentrated for a while too.

Re: Looking for a refreshing body wash

Thanks for the suggestion!  I've looked at this product before and wondered how it was.

Re: Looking for a refreshing body wash

Hi mw23!


One of my favorite shower gels is Philosophy's Senorita Margarita Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath. This scent of this shower gel has a lot of citrus notes including lime. The scent doesn't linger much after I shower, but I have that this shower gel lathers really nicely and doesn't dry out my skin. Smiley Wink
