Recession Proof Beauty: Wash Yourself (And Smell Good) For Less Than $10

Like the shampoos in our last Recession Proof Beauty post, body wash has one main job: to wash. After it's done it's duty, it slips away. Keep your money from slipping away with it.

For everyone: Dial Yogurt and Honey Nourishing Body Wash ($5.69) gets the job done. It cleanses without stripping the skin, has a pleasantly sweet (but not cloying) scent that's unlikely to offend, and it's easy to find at a reasonable price.

For dry skin sufferers: Olay Quench Body Wash ($8.79) cleans and moisturizes. If you've got dry skin (especially in winter), it's a great first layer to keep you from shriveling out of the shower. For the naturally supple and well-hydrated, you can probably skip lotion altogether.

For the flakey: Tone Sugar Glow Exfoliating Body Wash ($4.99) Tone always seemed like the redheaded stepchild of the drugstore aisle, but this stuff is actually good. Since “microbeads” haven't done squat to exfoliate my skin and salt scrubs are a little too involved for daily use, this is the perfect option for a routine morning scrub down.

For anyone with olfactory glands: Unlike the overpowering botanical blends out there,  Dionis Virginia Hyacinth Body Wash ($8.95) smells like an honest-to-God flower. It makes you feel like you're showering in a garden, but doesn't cling to your skin for the rest of the day.  It's gentle, and goats milk proteins and vitamins keep it from drying out your skin. The Rose scent is amazing, too.
