When you step in the shower each morning what does your hand reach for — a trusted bar of soap or a body wash? However you decide to cleanse your skin it is important you choose the right product. So, today we are about to put the long debate on Soap vs. Body Wash: What’s better for you, to rest.

This time we’re doing things a little differently. Let’s put the two body cleansers to test and by the end of this you will know which one’s for you.

 

Cleansing

When it comes to getting rid of dirt, oil and grime both products work equally well. Soap as well as body washes come with skin benefiting ingredients such as essential oils, glycerine, flower extracts and more to not just clean but leave your skin feeling soft and smooth.

 

Hygiene

Bar soaps aren’t as hygienic as body washes, because there’s always a fear that someone might use the former. However, before you declare body wash as the winner here’s something you need to know. Body washes are used along with wash cloths and loofahs which are a breeding ground for germs and bacteria.

 

Exfoliation and moisturising

Exfoliation and moisturising

Some of us will argue that body washes do a better job at exfoliating and moisturising the skin, but is it really true? Nowadays, soaps contain granules that do an equally good job at exfoliating as any body wash. Even when it comes to moisturising soaps have several skin nourishing ingredients such as aloe vera gel and shea butter that keeps skin hydrated for long. So here it really depends on your choice.

If you can’t do without your good ol’ bar of soap we are sure you’ve left enough of them in the hotel bathroom each time you travel. Body washes on the other hand can be easily carried just about everywhere. Travel size body wash makes it even more convenient.
