2014 – Showering Products Ratings

A significant three in five respondents to our recent survey spend most of their time grooming either their face or body, and 75% shower at least once a day. Keeping up appearances, it seems, is serious business to Australians. Therefore, you might be interested in investing in some of the best shower and bathing products available.

Winning our Everyday Essentials Award – Body Moisturisers, 2014 was Vaseline. This is probably unsurprising, given this brand has been largely synonymous with skin care in households across the globe since 1872. While most Australians will recognise the brand’s line of petroleum jelly products, Vaseline also produce a variety of spray lotions and body moisturisers.

If you need body wash instead, we’ve compared plenty of brands for you to target the next time you’re in the personal grooming section of the shops. Radox received our Men’s Body Wash Award for 2014, while Avon received the same award for Women’s Body Wash.

Lastly, we’ve looked at customer satisfaction with women’s face wash. Want that perfect, supermodel glow? Dove earned our Everyday Essentials Award in this area, so make sure you consider it for your skincare needs.
