Awesome 3-in-1 body wash

Today’s blog is for the dudes.

Presumably most of the people who visit JSF are very active, train hard and sweat a lot. I shower at least once per day, sometimes twice per day and–occasionally–even three times per day. I can’t stand not feeling clean.

I have always been a fan of liquid body washes, and over the years have tried quite a few of them. A few months ago the body wash I was getting through Amazon’s Subscribe & Save program was no longer available. I stumbled upon a product called NIVEA Men Active3 3-in-1 Body Wash, which has a great price, is available through Subscribe & Save and is very well reviewed.

I like simple. In fact, lately I’ve been on a mission to simply my life in as many ways as possible. As the name suggests, NIVEA Men Active3 3-in-1 Body Wash is not just a body wash: it’s also a shampoo and a shave lather. I was skeptical that the product would work well in all three departments, but after reading the great reviews I was willing to give it a try.

My wife, who manages a commercial beauty supply store, uses some of the finest shampoos and conditioners available. She looked disgusted when I told her I was using a body wash/shampoo. Whatever, I shave my head with a #2 guard. It’s not like a have a flowing mane that needs to be pampered. I just want the dirt out so I can get on with my day.

I am not a fan of body hair, and I completely shave down several times per week. It’s a fair bet that those of you who are into bodybuilding and/or cycling do some amount of body shaving, too. I used to use the Men’s BodyGroom (and still do if I’m in a rush), but these days I prefer to shave down using a razor.

Anyway, I was pretty excited about the possibility of replacing three products with just one. Simple is good.

I’ve been using this product for about 4 or 5 months now, and here are my thoughts on how it performs in each area:

Body wash: Light, but pleasant, scent. A small amount of product lathers up a surprising amount (I use these mesh bath thingies). Leaves me feeling clean, rinses off easily.

Shampoo: Does the job. I’m not fussy in this department, so YMMV.

Shave: I was skeptical that this product would perform well as a shave lather, but it’s a definite win! Shaves are smooth and comfortable. Absolutely no complaints. Hell, I don’t even use expensive razors. This stuff works great with cheap disposables (I use these Bic razors, which are dirt cheap and Subscribe & Save eligible).

I’ve replaced my body wash, shampoo and shave cream with this one very inexpensive product. If you’re a fancy lad this may not be for you, but if you just want to get clean and get shaved with as little hassle as possible, this stuff is a go. It’s earned a spot on my Favorite Things list.
