1. Smith & Chang

Bug-Me-Not Soap

Nothing kills a summer's evening like a haze of mosquitoes. Luckily, these bars, which come two in a pack, are made with bug-repellent citronella (and fragrant lavender).

2. C.O. Bigelow

Mentha Body Exfoliating Soap

Here's your A.M. eye-opener. Infused with peppermint oil, it offers a cooling tingle that'll have you wide-awake in no time.

$7.50; bigelowchemists.com

3. Jack Black

Turbo Body Bar

For those who always forget to exfoliate: This gritty bar is loaded with bits of pulverized lava rock, leaving you clean, smooth, and flake-free.

$15; getjackblack.com

4. Tom Ford

Oud Wood Bar Soap

With notes of cardamom and sandalwood, this bar's perfect for the guy who wants to smell great without going the cologne route.

$35; tomford.com

5. V76 by Vaughn

Bar Soap

It may look like a brick of marble, but this block is actually made of mineral clay (to draw out impurities) and oat extracts (to soothe dry or sensitive skin).

$22; neimanmarcus.com

6. Baxter of California

Vitamin Cleansing Bar: Lime and Pomegranate

Gentle enough for both face and body; the green stripe of glycerine offers an extra hit of hydration.
