Best Double-Duty Body Wash: Dove Body Wash Mousse

Best Antiperspirant: Secret Deodorant Clinical Strength Night Treatment
This unique treatment is applied at night. Why? That’s when your body temperature is more likely to be regulated. So apply before your shut-eye, and enjoy dry pit all the next day.

Best Body Lotion: Cetaphil UItra-Healing Lotion
Suffering from dry skin? Use this ceramide-infused formula to restore the skin’s natural moisture barrier. Since it’s also free of parabens, fragrance and gluten, it’s especially great for those with super-sensitive, irritable skin.
Best Body Cream: Jergens Body Butters
This new essential oil-infused body lotion (which comes in three mood-boosting scents) are crafted with the trifecta of powerful, ultra-hydrating butters — shea, mango, and coconut butter.

Best SPF: Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Weightless C-Spray
This ultra-fine mist feels barely-there on your skin. Plus, it provides up to 12 hours of hydration (but don’t forget to reapply every two hours, to reap the SPF protection).
