Moisturizing Body Washes: The 5 Best Cleansers For Dry Winter Skin

In the winter, it takes almost everything I have to not ratchet up the heat in my apartment. Same goes for the hot water in the shower.

That's when these super-hydrating body washes come into play. Loaded with moisturizing ingredients like shea butter, vitamin E and jojoba oil, these add an extra dose of moisture to keep skin super soft the entire day. Here, the top five most hydrating shower gels in all of the land (as road-tested by me).
