What You Need To Know

The "Good"

  • One product for hair and body
  • Gentle, invigorating formula

The "Could Be Better"

  • Some users report that it doesn’t lather well


Lather into hair and over skin and rinse thoroughly.



Menthol is a natural skin care ingredient that can help reduce inflammation, irritation and itching, as well as provide a cooling sensation on the skin. Menthol also helps to exfoliate dead skin cells and reveal brighter, smoother skin beneath.


Caffeine is known to reduce puffiness around the eyes, hydrate skin, protect from sun damage, and promote collagen production.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E helps protect skin from free radical damage and ultraviolet radiation that can cause premature aging. It can also help keep skin cells healthy and promote healing and reducing inflammation.

Zinc Oxide

Zinc Oxide is a mineral-based ingredient that is commonly used in skin care products, particularly sunscreens. It acts as a physical sunscreen by reflecting and scattering UV rays away from the skin. It is also used as an anti-inflammatory agent and can help soothe irritated skin. It is a safe, non-irritating, and non-allergenic ingredient which makes it suitable for sensitive skin types and can be used in many products such as sunscreens, moisturizers, and baby products. It is also an effective treatment for acne as it helps to reduce inflammation and regulate oil production.

For guys who want a lightning-fast morning routine, Kiehl’s Body Fuel Wash is a great option. We love the fresh sensation of menthol and light, invigorating citrus scent. While on the more expensive side, it’s a great choice for those who have room in their budget for a little luxury. Pair it with a quality loofah to get the most lather (and the most value for money).
