So I tried Black Wolf body wash for men. It’s silky and smooth, with a texture that feels like satin.

But does it actually provide a better clean and scent versus its competitors?

Let me just say upfront that this review is honest, and there are a lot of great things about this body wash, but there is one major con.

Honest Black Wolf Body Wash Review

The first thing I noticed about this body wash was the silkiness of it. When you pour it onto your hand or scrubber, it looks like a beautiful, glossy opal serum ready to cleanse your skin. It feels just as smooth when applied to your skin. In the midst of the shower, you will be met with a nice, yet subtle sage scent. It’s powerful, but not overwhelming.

One of the things I appreciate about the Black Wolf body wash is that you don’t need a lot to lather your entire body. A little really does go a long way. I use a dab slightly bigger than a quarter and find it’s more than enough to lather up head to toe when using a scrubber. I did pick up their silicone wolf scrubber, which is a pretty cool tool to pair with any body wash, not just Black Wolf’s.

Black Wolf Body Scrubber
$16.00 ($16.00 / Count)
Black Wolf created the Body Scrubber because they kept seeing the loofah vs. wash rag debate everywhere. But in fact, both aren't that hygienic. They tend to collect dead skin cells in their fibers. Our 100% silicone scrubber will last longer and keep you free of the grimy stuff.

Sum up

Black Wolf’s body wash is worth a shot if you are looking to switch up your body wash and support a company that makes its products in the USA.

This product is good and I would give it 4.5 out of 5 stars. That is a legitimate, honest point of view after using it for months. Overall, I would definitely recommend trying it out to see if it’s right for you.

Three Main Ingredients

With that, we are going to take a closer look at the three primary ingredients that make the magic work in the body wash.

Those are:

  • Charcoal powder: deep cleans
  • Salicylic acid: clears acne pimples
  • Cucumber extract: skin conditioning
Black Wolf body wash

Charcoal Powder

Charcoal has a lot of antibacterial power, removing acne-causing bacteria from deep within your pores. It also exfoliates and cleans, leaving your pores clear. Nothing detoxifies the skin quite like charcoal.

Salicylic Acid

The beta-hydroxy acid salicylic acid penetrates your pores and breaks down oil. This also helps your skin shed dead cells. In short, it’s basically the MVP in the fight against acne. That’s why Black Wolf has a lot of products with it. It also exfoliates and soothes the skin.

Cucumber Extract

Cucumbers are high in vitamins, minerals, proteins, and other nutrients. It improves the appearance of your skin on a daily basis, but it’s especially beneficial on puffy days. Cucumber, on the other hand, calms the skin, which is why it’s included in our razor bump cream.

Acne Control

This soap has definitely helped control breakouts. At this time I think it’s too early to say that it’s done anything for any current acne but it’s prevented anything new from pooping up which is amazing. The smell isn’t very strong, but it’s a nice scent. I just wish it lasted longer. It helps get stubborn dirt off of my skin after working outside for 8 hours, where as my other body soap would require intense scrubbing. I don’t have sensitive skin like others, but some soaps that help with my acne do dry my skin out and this one leaves it nice and soft. I will definitely buy again!

Keratosis Pilaris

For those with KP, for those lucky enough not to know what KP is, Keratosis pilaris, you’re always looking for a product to help get rid of those bumps. As someone who has tried many other products with salicylic acid that either stink, leave your skin kinda dry and still don’t help much at all.

After use of one bottle and daily showers I can report that the bumps are still there… HOWEVER, the redness of the bumps have greatly reduced and MAYBE my skin has cleared up just a little bit. I also like the smell of this stuff. Not inside the bottle mind you, but lathering up, it smells good in the shower. I’ve had compliments on the smell if that adds any flare for you.

I will continue using this product in the coming months and will report results for those with KP who care to know.

Only complaint really is me being cheap and annoying particular. The price is a little steep for the size of the bottle, but it’s arguably worth it, and my particular bottle’s cap leak just a little, which just left a little bit of product on the side of the bottle, not a huge deal.

TLDR: Reduced redness of KP, maybe cleared KP up a little, and smells good.
