Equate Island Spring Antibacterial Body Wash is an overall good liquid soap for the family. It has a nice fragrance and does not dry out my skin. It also costs less than the name brand body washes and works just as well. Effectiveness This body wash does clean well. It lathers up very good, smells refreshing, and does not leave my skin feeling tight, dry or with any residue. I mainly use this soap in the humid summer months when I want to be as clean as possible. However, I do find that if I use this everyday that my skin breaks out with eczema. That said, I only use this soap on the most humid of summer days. This is an antibacterial soap that helps to kill the bacteria on your underarms and that in turn allows my deodorant to work effectively at keeping me fresh smelling all day. This is also a good body wash to use after a workout. Scent The scent of this body wash is light and refreshing. It is a noticeable scent but not too strong or like a heavy perfume The scent does not linger on your skin for long after you shower.
