I'll admit I was not one of the guys who jumped on the bodywash band wagon right away.  But I started using cheap brands of the stuff a few years ago.  They've always been better than using a bar of soap, but partly it was just convenience.  My wife used a not-girly smelling body wash, so I used it too. 

Now, man fragrances are truly coming into their own.  Several other brands smell great, but they all had one thing in common - they felt horrible.  It felt like rubbing wax on my skin, and left me drier than before using them.  If left my poor skin wondering what it did wrong to deserve such treatment.

Gillette's Hydrator Bodywash doesn't do any of that.  It looks like butter coming out of the very hi-tech looking bottle, and who doesn't like that?  It foams up like no other soap I've used, and feels great!  When it's washed off, your skin doesn't feel abused and guilty.  Neither does it feel like you're now coated in some kind of slick film like other moisturizing soaps I've tried.  

Highly recommended, and I don't usually get excited about soap!

My wife got several of bottles of this soap on a great deal (almost free-- she's a couponer), so I am stocked up on this stuff until the end of time.  If it weren't almost free, I wouldn't recommend buying this, although if you can get it for nothing, it is far better than the super cheap generics.  My big complaint with this soap is that it really isn't good for dry skin, even though the name implies that it would be.  It still leaves me with some dry spots.  I'm not really a lotion guy, so I'd prefer if a soap doesn't make me dry.  I may have to donate some of my stock to a local shelter and try something new to see if it's less drying.  On the up side, my wife likes how this soap smells, so of course I like how it smells.  She says it is like having just a hint of cologne, rather than being overpowered by a smell.  I think it might still be a lilttle too strong smelling, personally, though.

Well worth the price

Comments about Gillette Dry Skin 2 in 1 Hydrator + Body Wash:

Gillette really has it figured out with this body wash. While the body wash is slightly more expensive than others, the amount of body wash required is minimal compared to typical body washes, making it last much longer than those typical body washes. Not only does a single bottle last forever because of the superior quality, but the body wash also smells great. For the most part, this is the body wash to get for bathing purposes. The hydration portion helps rejuvenate any dry skin, and with the body wash lasting for quite some time, the value is great. I used to think that body wash was just body was, until I tried this Gillette body wash; that was when I realized that paying a little more for body wash actually saves money in the long run because of the longevity of each bottle of Gillette body wash. Overall, this is some of the best body wash I've ever used, and I can't fault the product in any real way.

Gillette is a great bodywash for men!

By 

from Warsaw, MO

Comments about Gillette Dry Skin 2 in 1 Hydrator + Body Wash:

I am pretty picky about what kind of bodywash I use. I don't like for it to smell too girly - I prefer a more manly scent. There are so many "girly" scented bodywashes out there that it is difficult to find a bodywash that smells "manly" enough for me without being too overpowering. I'm happy with how Gillette's Dry Skin Hydrator and Bodywash smells - not too strong, just right. In the winter months, I have very dry skin, and this is very hydrating and mosturizes my dry skin. I like a product that does double duty so I don't have to buy tons of stuff. This product hydrates AND cleans so I don't have to buy a lotion AND a bodywash...I just have to buy the bodywash. I like that the dispenser for this bodywash is on the bottom of the bottle so that all of the bodywash falls to the bottom and I like the shape of the bottle - it fits nicely in my hand while I am lathering up. Once the bottle starts to get empty, it becomes kind of a pain to try and squeeze all the bodywash out, but otherwise this is a great product!

Gillette dry skin body wash really helps!!

By 

from Hudson, MA

Comments about Gillette Dry Skin 2 in 1 Hydrator + Body Wash:

Gillette Dry Skin Body Wash is great for dry skin.  My Fiancee uses this product for when his skin gets itchy in the winter and it works wonders! The feel of the soap itself is a very nice silky smooth texture.  It lathers into your skin nicely.  It says that it'll take away the itch/dry skin in one use and it does.  very truthful to its words.  The smell is one of my fiancees favorite smells and reasons why he uses it.  Its a fruity kinda smell, not too overwhelming.  After using this soap your skin is so soft! it really takes the itch out of the dry skin.  Great for use in the winter.  Men who have rough skin/hands should use this, it will make your skin much smoother and nicer to touch! I have even used it on my back where it gets itchy and im a woman but it still works and my skin was not as itchy as it was before the feeling of the soap is what i like about it, of course the smell is great too!

Really helps with dry skin!

By 

from Orem, UT

Comments about Gillette Dry Skin 2 in 1 Hydrator + Body Wash:

My teen son has very dry skin and most body washes leave him feeling like his skin is somewhat like sandpaper.  I had purchased the Gillette Hydrating body wash on sale with a coupon and put it in our storage for later use.  The teen son with the dry skin was out of body wash so he grabbed the Gillette.  Wow!  After using it for about a week he came to me and asked me to feel the skin on his back.  It was amazingly soft!  Honestly, neither one of us was expecting this result but were very, very pleasantly surprised.  I would definitely recommend this to anyone with dry skin who does not like to use lotion regularly.

        Comments about Gillette Dry Skin 2 in 1 Hydrator + Body Wash:

        My husbands is a typical bar soap user.  He has never wanted to really try men's body wash for thinking it wasn't "manly" enough.  He also thought that men's body wash was something that was pretty costly as well.  I received a good coupon to buy this for just about free so I made him take the plunge to try it out for something different.  I smelled it before purchasing it and I really liked the scent.  When I brought it home my husband also enjoyed the scent. 

        When he tried it he was pleasantly surprised at how much he really likes it over bar soap.  It is quick and easy to use as it lathers up with a loofa very easily and quickly.  He has noticed that it has been a big time saver and you don't need to use a lot to get a lot of usage out of it.  with a loofa it suds up and can be used everywhere, including your hair, which makes for a quick shower.  It smells great afterwards and it is really inexpensive.  It lasts a long time and works really well and makes you feel really clean.

        great clean feeling after use

        By 

        from Glenshaw, PA

        Comments about Gillette Dry Skin 2 in 1 Hydrator + Body Wash:

        I tried this item this past week for the first time and was pleasantly surprised with the product. I was afraid that it would have a very masculine smell and that it would leave me with a soapy feeling on my skin. It did neither. The smell is quite pleasant although not floral by any means. And the body wash delivers a great smooth feeling after use. I truly believe it is doing a great job at hydrating my skin after a few uses. My husband does not regularly use body wash (sticking to soap most of the time) and was happy to use this product due to the masculine feel of it. I was also happy to use it as it delivered the same thing as other body washes I have used in the past. We will continue to use this product and similar items from Gillette as they continue to provide great products and offer great coupons to the consumer. Highly recommend you try this product if you are looking for a new body wash.

        Smells Like a Man

        By 

        from Calais, ME

        Comments about Gillette Dry Skin 2 in 1 Hydrator + Body Wash:

        I am an avid body wash user and have tried many different brand of body wash.  I like the Gillette brand the best.  While I often feel clean when I use other products I do not always notice the clean scent or the scent of the body wash in the same way as I did after using Gillette. I can smell the pleasing scent of the body wash on my skin and that's what I want in a body wash. In fact, it was strong enough for me to go without cologne and still manage to smell pretty good. In most places you can't wear cologne anyway, so it's nice with the hint of fragrance that literally stays with you the whole day.

        The price of this body wash is fair too, and the bottle seems to last a while, making it a good value.

        Gillette body wash has a great scent for men

        By 

        from Troutdale, OR

        Comments about Gillette Dry Skin 2 in 1 Hydrator + Body Wash:

        I wasn't planning to ever buy body wash, my husband and I liked the old fashioned bar of soap, but then I came upon a great deal for Gillette body wash hydrator and decided to try it. We are very pleased with it. I don't really see a difference in the hydration of my skin, but I do like the scent and it get's me clean. The scent is better for men, but it doesn't bother me.
