Whether you're a first-thing-in-the-morning or a just-before-bed kinda person, shower gel is an essential we reach for every day, so we're calling it: it's totally OK to be a bit of a snob when shopping for one.
We want them to lather properly, smell gorgeous and look pretty by the side of the bath, all without stripping skin of the good stuff - plus there's bonus points to be earned for indulgent textures.
So whether you shower for five minutes or fifty, here are the most luxurious body washes and shower gels to snap up right now - because who wouldn't want their shared bathroom to feel like a 5* spa?More
Cowshed - £21
Designer shower gel? It's a thing. Fashion's Mary Katrantzou is world-famous for her paradisaical digital prints, so her collaboration with Cowshed was always going to brighten up your shower. The lavender brings British summertime to mind, making it the perfect pick me up on grey, miserable Monday mornings and eucalyptus essential oils leave skin feeling as silky smooth and pampered as it is clean. We'll take two bottles!
Fresh - £18
Ultra-moisturising vitamin E, free radical-shielding vitamin C and an invigorating citrussy wake-up scent combine to leave skin feeling fresh from A.M. to P.M. The best part? The added glycolic acid works to keep sweat-induced breakouts and bacne at bay, because neither of those things are cool.
