The Best Brands for Budget-Friendly Body Washes

Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash

I love my affordable body washes, and with the amount now available on the market there’s really no need to spend a lot on them—not that I ever did! However, with so many different brands offering a ton of different formulas and fragrances, it can definitely get a little overwhelming. So, to help you out, here are my top brands that do some of my favourite body washes!

Live Clean

I’m pretty vocal about this Canadian brand and how much I adore their stuff. And with their ever-expanding range of eco-friendly products—which are vegan, cruelty-free and free of any harsh chemicals—they’re definitely my favourite, affordable brand in terms of ‘green’ beauty. I love how gentle their body washes are on the skin and how nourished my skin feels after using them. Plus, the 500 mL size means you get a ton of product for the price, so you really can’t go wrong!

Some of my favourites include:

Live Clean Vanilla Oatmeal Soothing Body Wash, Live Clean Fresh Water Hydrating Body Wash and Live Clean Coconut Milk Moisturizing Body Wash

Le Petit Marseillais

As the #1 selling body wash in France, this French company finally made it’s way over to North America last year. I absolutely love the unique scents they offer in their range, which are all inspired by the nature and culture of the South of France. All of their body washes are also pH neutral, meaning they are adapted to the pH of your skin to help keep the skin healthy and balanced. I especially love their shower crèmes, which leave my skin feeling really moisturized. Hopefully, they bring more of their products over to Canada soon, as I am a total fan.

Some of my favourites include:

Le Petit Marseillais Orange Blossom Extra Gentle Shower Crème, Le Petit Marseillais Vanilla Milk Extra Gentle Shower Crème and Le Petit Marseillais Cotton Milk & Poppy Extra Gentle Shower Crème


I’ve used Dove since I was a kid, and it’s a brand I always end up coming back to because I love the nostalgic scent of their products and how gentle they are. At the moment, I have been using the Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash*, which I received complimentary for testing purposes courtesy of Influenster. Thanks to its NutriumMoisture technology, it creates a rich lather that leaves my skin feeling so incredibly soft and smooth out of the shower. So much so, that I feel like I don’t even need to moisturize afterwards, which is saying a lot, as I am someone that is very adamant about moisturizing my body.

Some of my favourites include:

Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash, Dove Go Fresh Cucumber & Green Tea Scent Body Wash and Dove Sensitive Skin Beauty Bar

The Body Shop

I absolutely love The Body Shop’s shower gels, as they come in so many different scents, and even though they’re shower gels range from $10-$20, they are almost always on offer, making them much more affordable (I usually wait until they’re on for 50% off). They use soap-free cleansers, so it doesn’t strip the skin, and they also use Community Trade ingredients, which is always worth supporting. Their Tea Tree Skin Clearing Body Wash is especially great for blemish-prone skin, and I love using it after the gym to help keep my skin clear on my chest and back.

Some of my favourites include:

The Body Shop Vineyard Peach Shower Gel, The Body Shop Honeymania Shower Gel and The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Body Wash

Do you also love any of these body washes as well? What are some of your favourites?
