Nothing feels better than a shower after a hot and sweaty summer day. However, if you got a little more sun than you planned, an extra cool shower can help soothe a sunburn — especially if you use Cetaphil’s Cooling Relief Body Wash.
Amazon shoppers — over 10,000 of them — give the body wash five out of five stars and say that it’s great for dry, sensitive skin. So, in addition to sunburn, it could help soothe skin irritations, dryness, roughness, tightness and a weakened skin barrier, according to the product description.
“My husband and I have tried all different types of soaps from nice smelling brands to basic washes and we go back to this soap every time,” wrote one Amazon reviewer. “We both have very sensitive, acne prone skin and the Cetaphil helps with both of those problems. It moisturizes and cleans our skin without any burning or itching. We use it on our body and as our face wash!”
“Hubby has eczema and he says this soap helps with the itchy skin. Any relief is welcome,” wrote another reviewer.
Cetaphil’s Cooling Relief Body Wash can help moisturize the skin for up to 24 hours. It’s hypoallergenic and fragrance-free, as well as free of parabens and sulfates. However, in addition to moisturizing with shea butter, soybean oil and glycerin, it contains eucalyptus to provide a slight cooling effect to totally refresh skin.
In addition to using it as a body wash, a lot of Amazon reviewers shared that they use Cetaphil’s product as a shaving cream. It doesn’t lather — it coats the skin in a gentle serum-like texture to clean and moisturize skin, and that texture also makes it great for shaving.
“I use this for shaving,” shared another Amazon shopper in the reviews. “Would normally get shavers burn and bumps a day or two after I would shave on my neck area. Even after switching out new blades, and I’ve tried so many different methods. When I use this for shaving, those issues go away and leaves my face nice and soft and clean.”
“This is the perfect body wash for dry sensitive skin,” wrote another. “Gentle enough for all body parts and leaves a very faint clean smell on the skin. It’s a gentle cream so it doesn’t lather like soap or detergent. I don’t even need to use a body lotion after my shower.”
So whether you have a skin issue you’re trying to soothe or simply want to experience the cooling effect, you can get Cetaphil’s Cooling Relief Body Wash on Amazon for only $10.29. The 20-ounce bottle comes with a pump top that makes it easy to dispense the perfect amount.
Additionally, if you don’t need the cooling effect but are looking to treat a specific issue, Cetaphil makes body washes for acne, smoothing bumps and flare-up relief — and they’re all available on Amazon.
