Our review compares body wash on customer satisfaction, so you can find out what other Aussies think about the compared brands before you go ahead with a purchase. Think of it as like asking hundreds of your closest mates which body wash they think is best!
Canstar Blue surveyed 1,647 Australians for their feedback on the body wash brand(s) they’ve purchased and used in the last six months. Note: this includes body wash, shower gel, or bar soap suitable for face, body, and general use.
The winning brand is the one that receives the highest Overall satisfaction rating once all the scores from the Overall satisfaction criteria are combined and averaged.
Brands must have received at least 30 responses to be included, so not all brands available in the market have been compared in this survey. The brands rated in this survey are listed below in order of best overall satisfaction.

Body washes and shower gels can achieve very similar outcomes, and as a result are commonly filed into the same category. There are some key differences between the two washing products including texture, consistency, and how they interact with the skin. Shower gels generally feature stronger fragrances and can be harsher on the skin. Alternatively, body washes are typically better at hydrating and moisturising the skin. This is why body wash is an ideal option for those looking to cleanse, rejuvenate, and combat dryness all in one go.
