The 7 Best Moisturizing Body Washes In 2018
If you have dry skin, lathering up in a hot shower can do more harm than good, especially when coupled with a harsh body wash. Hot water can strip the skin of naturally-occurring oils, as can certain drying body care formulas. That’s why experts recommend bathing in lukewarm water and using products that are formulated for your skin type. When every shower and bath leaves your skin feeling dry, itchy, and all around uncomfortable, take that as your cue to switch up your body care products.
Dry skin types are best suited to a moisturizing body wash that’s as hydrating and gentle as it is effective. The right formula should leave your skin feeling soft, smooth, hydrated, and of course clean. We sifted through a handful of moisturizing body washes and found our picks of the best from the L’Oréal portfolio of brands. Scroll through to find your perfect match!

Comfort your skin while you cleanse with this gentle foaming body wash.
