I just purchased the Old Spice Red Zone body ( Glacial Falls) I used it this morning and I think it works pretty good. It is supposed to keep it scent for up to 8 hours.

Does anyone else use body washes? If so, what do you think of them?

I use the Molton Brown Black Pepper Wash. I think it's great!

I'm not a fan as I generally use strong cologne (M7 for this fall) and most body washes are clashing. I try to keep the scents neutral, and the cleansers mild, as my skin often gets retarded if I don't treat it well while cleaning.

I use Axe Revive or Touch. They keep their sent for only a short amount of time from what I can tell but my girl likes the smell. Also it does a fair job for cleaning.
For the rest of my body I use Fructis Normal Hair formula Shampoo and Cetophyl antibacterial non-soap on my face (works like a charm).

most body washes will be milder and less stripping than plain old soap

baxter of california makes a nice italian lime scented one
heavy duty has an excellent grapefruit heavy lathering one
molton brown's black pepper recharge as mentioned above is excellent
korres makes a number of body washes, the cedar one being an interesting scent to pick up and try

+2 (counting hermes). If I had to choose only one body wash, it'd be that one.

I like the smell of the bodywash, but still feel cleaner after using soap. I'm liking KMF Olive Oil bar now.

Body washes + loofahs = one of the greatest inventions ever

I use a lemon scented one from L'Occtiane

I think you'll like it -- it's really the nicest wash I've ever used!

Not to hijack the thread, but I'm also a huge fan of molton Brown's naran ji hand soap.

Dove bar soap here as well. I find that it's gentle enough and doesn't leave my skin dry.
