GOLD Body Wash
SILVER Body Wash
If you smell amazing, people want to get closer. If you smell badly, people will want to run to the hills. In this video men’s style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaMAaronMarino, and Pete & Pedro  says the price-point is different for drug store vs premium.

Over the last 6-months, he has been testing and trying the body washes for the new Pete & Pedro Body Washes Gold & Silver.  Alpha says Gold is leathery musky and Silver is fresh and clean. He alternates between showers — they are super hydrating, sulfate & paraben free. Supplies are limited as the run is to see what feedback he gets. He will not be including these in the 2018 Best Men’s Body Wash analysis — although he thinks they are the best body washes currently on the market.

The Run Down

Fresh, not overpowering, and strictly for body washing are the keys to what Alpha is looking for when testing. Do NOT use a 2-in-1 (used on hair and body both).

  • The David Beckham House 99 products are the most over-rated out there right now, according to Alpha. He doesn’t feel hydrated and thinks it’s overpriced at $28 for 10 ounces.
  • Molten Brown is the king of body wash — and overpriced. The price is $32 for 10 ounces. The Black Peppercorn scent lingers longer on Alpha’s body longer than he likes. The Coastal Cypress & Sea Fennel is a Molton Brown fragrance he prefers because it’s not overpowering or lingering. Also the Bushukan is lemony and bright – he also likes this option better than the Black Peppercorn.
  • Wander Body Wash by Dollar Shave Club is similar to the Molton Brown’s Black Peppercorn and more affordable.
  • Grooming Lounge Best Smeller Body wash is also more affordable than the Molton Brown Black Peppercorn.
  • Body Fuel by Keihls -and- American Crew are both 2-in-1 — which you don’t want a cleansing product that can be used on hair and body.


The Bottom Line

Alpha’s favorite premium body wash is Molton Brown because of the fragrance and how his body feels when and after using.

In terms of the less expensive (around $5):

  • Dove Clean Comfort is his favorite. It’s mild and it’s not a 2-in-1. The only problem is that you don’t want to use on the face — your facial skin is more delicate and needs a specific face wash (like Tiege Hanley).
  • Nivea Men’s Cool scent is fresh, bright, and masculine is also a body was that Alpha thinks is great.
  • Aveno Daily Moisturizing has no fragrance and is a solid body wash. It’s nourishing.
  • Alpha doesn’t like the Old Spice or Axe fragrances — smells like a cheap cologne.
