Dr.Hauschka has released a new line of body washes that not only cleanse and hydrate the skin, but also supposedly lift your mood through the aromatic power of essential oils. Those ingredients, plus various plant extracts, cleanse the skin, so the soap-free formulations feel more like moisturizer than body wash.

There are four different varietals, all for a different skin solution: Soothing Almond utilizes almond oil to soften and protect dehydrated bodies; the Lavender Sandalwood Calming wash revitalizes the skin; and the Rose Nurturing wash uses rose-petal extracts to help tone skin, leaving it soothed and luminous. But the most invigorating option is the Revitalizing Lemon Lemongrass wash, which works to fortify skin with lemon-peel oil. As the zestiest version, it's essentially the bathing substitute for a disco nap.
