Best Smelling Body Washes and Shampoos for Men
There’s a new thing going on in men’s grooming – a movement inspired by the desire to not have to deal with multiple products and containers at once: combination shampoos and body washes.
We get it. It’s easy. It’s practical. And yes – done right, it absolutely works.
Unlike shampoo and conditioner, which, despite all the ‘2-in-1’ products out there, do not combine optimally because they cancel each other out (conditioner adds oil while shampoo strips it), shampoos and body washes CAN, in fact, form a happy and productive union because they’re both “surfactants”, which means they reduce the surface tension of water, making it much easier to remove dirt and oil.
The trick is finding that body wash and shampoo combo that both cleanses well AND leaves skin and hair smelling amazing. A great body wash and shampoo will lather away sweat and dirt without stripping away natural oils that keep your skin and hair healthy.
So without further ado, here’s our top five best smelling body wash and shampoos for men, along with their vital details.
Our description says it best: The ultimate product: a body, face and hair wash in one that makes rushed mornings a bit more manageable. The fragrance of Jack Black All-Over Wash is best described as “manly” and works well for all skin and hair types. The two key ingredients that work their magic are: Panthenol, a penetrating, hydrating, and moisturizing derivative of vitamin B5 that is present in all living cells, which makes it the perfect ingredient for skin and hair care. Wheat protein, which strengthens hair and increases its ability to receive and maintain moisture.
If you’re looking for a best smelling shampoo and body wash for men that emanates “fresh,” this is it. This bracing, minty shampoo and body wash will awaken the senses as it relinquishes the need to try to hold onto that slippery bar of soap. The wonderful thing (did we just use the word – wonderful – okay, cut us some slack) about Lucky Tiger is its use of all-natural ingredients. The essential oils of olive and coconut smooth and soften, while rosemary adds antioxidant benefits and mint extract cools even the most damaged scalps. Lucky Tiger works well for all skin and hair types, too.
If you like the feeling – or at least idea – of walking through an invigorating but serene eucalyptus forest (and who doesn’t?), you’ll want to own this one. The key ingredients are eucalyptus and birch extracts, which stimulate circulation, and Canadian balsam, which soothes. Certain smells just open your eyes in the best way. This solution cleans really well and rinses even better, leaving the skin feeling tight and fresh, and the significant other will really love it too. To boot, it’s Paraben-free.
This is an all-around body wash, shampoo and facial cleanser – so you’re getting the full 3-in-1 package for extra efficiency and convenience. But more importantly, it just feels and smells amazing. It’s “pearlized”, which means it has that luxurious look and texture. The gentle, pH-balanced formula combine a soothing and toning Cucumber extract with a strengthening and moisturizing Oat protein. It’s for all skin and hair types, and while it’s got gold in its name – it’s the minty scent that is priceless.
