Listen Up: A Very Sudsy Body Wash v. Soap Roundtable
Ok, it’s time for the great soap and body wash debate of 2018, and we brought in two beauty pros, Britt Aboutaleb and Claire Carusillo, to work us into a lather. Another thing to feel bubbly about: Erica makes an excellent case for puttin’ on pearls and heading to the opera (for the food as well as the show).
P.S. Vote with your dollars! If you want! Daughter of the Land Hair and Body Shampoo Bar, Rohr Remedy Honey Myrtle Body Wash, Modern Wash Soaps, and Wary Meyers Striped Glycerin and Confetti Soaps are all 10% off with the code AFEWTHINGS.
Recs in the liquid soap realm: Rohr Remedy Honey Myrtle Body Wash, Glossier Body Hero Daily Oil Wash, David Mallett Shampoo No. 1 (which, yes, is for your skin!), Baxter Invigorating Body Wash, and Kiehl’s Bath and Shower Liquid Body Cleanser in Coriander. And never forget the classic Neutrogena Rainbath Refreshing Shower Gel.
On the solid, bar-soap side: Daughter of the Land Hair and Body Shampoo Bar, Modern Wash Soaps, Wary Meyers Striped Glycerin and Confetti Soaps, Mrs. Meyer’s Daily Bar Soap, Osmia Black Clay Facial Soap, and—the ultimate classic—Dove Beauty Bar.
Other beauty endorsements from this crew: Cult-fave Biologique Recherche P50 Lotion, which Britt’s got strong feelings about. Lucas’ Papaw Ointment is a bomb balm, and Soapwalla sells a darn good deodorant. Muslin cloths, also known as diaper liners, are great for faces. Spironolactone is something to read up on if you’ve got cystic acne, Vi Aesthetics is changing the chemical-peel game, and Drunk Elephant is a fan-favorite for a reason. There’s also Hairstory, whose subscription co-wash is eco-friendly. And for even more tips, Andrea Linett’s got a great beauty section on her blog.
