It’s one thing to feel fresh after a shower, it’s another thing to feel fresh, smell incredible and have skin that’s as smooth as a baby’s bottom.

Once upon a time, it was a luxury to buy soap that didn’t leave your skin dry and flaky.

Thankfully, we live in an era with some amazing apothecary products. There are some awesome brands out there making all-natural soap for men with unique scents (…including an IPA option!) and moisturizing ingredients that make sure your skin doesn’t have that stretchy, cracking, leathery feel to it.

In your quest to feel your very best after a shower, we ranked the best soap for men our there. These amazing men’s soap products are more than the run-of-the-mill soap that most people have in their bathroom.

Dr. Squatch Soap is a personal favorite, but, hey, skin is different, so it’s a matter of what works best for you. That’s why we’re breaking down the best men’s soap brands on the market today, offering up some options to help you weigh the various scents and benefits of each.

Dr. Squatch Pine Tar Soap

Made from real pine extract, Dr. Squatch’s Pine Tar Soap bar is a tough son-of-a-gun, capable of knocking out grime and dirt on your body, while still delivering A+ moisturizing and scents. Exfoliate and nourish your skin with the oatmeal and the super-soothing shea butter, with other all-natural ingredients helping you feel fresh.


Duke Cannon “Big Ass Brick of Soap”


Want to smell like an accomplishment? Every guy should want to, which is why Duke Cannon’s “Big Ass Brick of Soap” is a pretty solid option to have in your shower. Steel-cut grains for max gripability and manly exfoliation, and inspired by Bergamot & Black Pepper, this stuff feels like drinking a fine scotch in a wood-paneled room — but delivers an exceptional punch for your skin.


Dr. Squatch Grapefruit IPA Soap

After a long day out, there’s almost nothing that can beat the refreshing, hoppy beer with a citrusy splash. And, with a Grapefruit IPA scent, Dr. Squatch’s Crisp IPA soap brings that feeling to a guy’s skin. Inspired by a San Diego craft beer favorite, this perfectly brewed bar feels as good on your skin as a cold one with the boys during a hot summer day.


Dr. Bronner’s Organic Castile Bar Soap, Peppermint

Arguably the most popular scent from Dr. Bronner’s, this soap gives an incredible scent (and tingles), bringing an extra sense of sensation. Made from completely biodegradable and vegetable-based for a gentle and effective soap — which is ideal for washing body, face or hair — the soap is also versatile, and can be used for a number of DIY cleaning projects to show-off how powerful it is.


Brickell Men’s Purifying Charcoal Soap Bar for Men

Sure, we all want to smell great — which is essential as a man — but we also want to make sure our skin is well-nurtured, which is what one can expect when using Brickell Men’s Purifying Charcoal soap. Natural soap that provides frothy lather to clean skin without drying it out, the mint and tea tree oils create a refreshing scent that leaves skin feeling cool and refreshed, while the activated charcoal deeply cleanses and purifies skin.


Tea Tree Body Bar 

Thanks to the parsley flakes, which gently exfoliates the skin, Tea Tree Body Bar will leave you feeling refreshed and clean. And with tea tree oil adding a natural antiseptic and disinfectant, you’ll be as fresh as can be while smelling like you just walked out of a five-star spa.


Dr. Squatch Bay Rum Soap

You don’t need to take a trip to the island to feel like you’re living the good life. With Dr. Squatch’s Bay Rum soap, island time’s all yours anytime you step into the shower, with this tropically inspired bar bringing a revitalizing blend of crushed cloves, cinnamon sticks, crisp pine, and zesty orange will whisk you away to a place of total serenity and cleanliness.


Bossman 4-in-1 Bar Soap

Made from organic oils that moisturize a man’s beard, hair and skin, the 4-in-1 Bossman soap packs all the moisturizing oils like organic coconut oil, organic shea butter and organic palm oil into a dynamic bar that cleans and nourishes skin. The infused essential oils of Geranium, Lavender, Vanilla, Rosemary and Patchouli create a clean, yet seductive, manly scent that delivers in any occasion.


MARLOWE. No. 102 Men’s Body Scrub Soap

The MARLOWE. No. 102 Men’s Body Scrub offers a unique and natural blend of passionflower fruit, green tea and willow bark extracts, which is formulated to exfoliate skin and scrub away dryness for a smooth, clean feeling. Add in the light scents of agarwood, followed by balance of sandalwood and musk, and the soap truly is one of the more unique smelling soaps on the market.


One With Nature Dead Sea Mineral Soap, Dead Sea Salt

Made in Jordan with minerals from the Dead Sea, the soap bar is packed with Dead Sea Salts and Shea Butter, which provides Triple Milled Rejuvenation. With a combination of salts and over 20 minerals, the unique soap brings a manly fragrance to match the texture and benefits while using in the shower.


Dr. Squatch Gold Moss Soap

There’s something about oak that brings out the best in a man. From aging whiskey to building furniture, guys have a certain affection for the stability and reliability of the wood. In that vein, Dr. Squatch created its Gold Moss soap, which has an oak moss scent to remind dudes that they need some suds that are as solid and earthy as they are. But with shea butter and sea salt subtly blended in, this soap is as smooth as a favorite bourbon.
