I Stopped Using Body Wash And This Is What Happened

March 1, 2016 by Jeanine Edwards

Full disclosure: there is nothing scientific or clinically proven about the following.

With that out of the way, I can honestly say I don’t know if I’ll ever buy body wash again. About five weeks ago I ran out of body wash and just grabbed the nearest cleansing product I had handy in the shower. It happened to be this Soap & Glory facial cleanser, so I lathered up my loofah and started scrubbing. Fast forward a few weeks and I actually never got around to buying a new body wash because my skin has been looking better than ever. My diet hasn’t changed and I’ve actually been more stressed than usual (just moved apartments, oy!), so all credit really goes to trading in my body wash for a facial wash.

It actually makes sense if you think about it. Face wash is designed to work on the delicate skin on your face, so giving the rest of your bod that kind of TLC could only means good things. And let me tell you, my skin is so noticeably softer and brighter that even my otherwise oblivious boyfriend noticed a difference.

As an added bonus on top of the smoothness and vibrance, I’ve also had way fewer breakouts on my back. Those painful, annoying pimples I used to get on my back (from all the hair products I use dripping on my skin) have virtually disappeared, likely because the face wash I’ve been using as a body wash is specially formulated to both cleanse and purify.

So given all of these positives, plus the fact that this particular face wash isn’t that much more expensive than an equally sized body wash and I’m pretty much convinced I’m never going back to body wash. Just saying, if you’re finding that your skin is dull and kinda meh after years of using bar soap or body wash, you may want to try swapping it for a facial wash instead. Let me know in the comments if this has worked for you too!
