A girl I once dated came out of my bathroom with a look of horror on her face. I knew it was clean and fully stocked with products so I wondered what was her issue could possibly be. It seemed that she took issue with the amount of fancy man-grooming things I owned but that I still used basic bar soap.
Yep, until recently, I still used a plain bar of soap and not some chi-chi body wash. I buy fancy shampoo, I splurge on designer shaving cream, but something always brought me back to the same bar of basic soap that I used for my formative years of life. The one mom bought. Hey, why mess with a good thing?
The relationship with said woman didn’t last and I kept using my non-fancy bar soap until a recent trip home sent a shock to my system: my own father and brother had broken ties with bar soap! This epiphany came courtesy of a mid-shampoo moment when I fumbled looking for a bar of soap that would never materialize. Ok, so now I guess I had to break with tradition and find a body wash that suits me.
After some deliberation, I came across a new line of shower products recently launched by shaving mainstay Gillette. The brand’s Hydra Scrub Body Wash with Power Beads ($4.99) was just what I needed to make the switch from bar soap to body wash. It’s got a clean refreshing scent, and the power beads really do the trick cleaning and keeping your skin soft and smooth all day. Perfect if you’ve got dry skin.
If you’re still using the ole’ bar, I’d suggest raising it and switching to this awesome body wash. Trust me, it’s well worth it.
