Everyone deserves a little TLC and that's where body products come in. Whether you love to unwind by painting your nails whilst streaming the latest on Netflix or make it your business to slather yourself in the most decadently rich lotions on the daily, there's something undeniable about a solid self-care routine. With that in mind, we've tested dozens of body washes and scrubs and made ourselves guinea pigs for a fair number of self-tanners and hair removal devices, and now we're sharing our favorite body products of the year. Keep reading for the winners of the 2018 TotalBeauty Awards.

Best Base Coat / Top Coat
Editors' Pick Winner: Flora 1761 Essential Primer
Why: All of Flora 1761's products are 8-free, which is an especially nice trait in a base coat (it's the first layer on your nails, after all). This quick-drying primer has an easy-to-work with thin texture and it creates such a smooth surface for your polish.

Honorable Mention: OPI Infinite Shine Gloss

Readers' Choice Winner: Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
Why: I have never used a top coat as wonderful as this and it does exactly what it says. It's fast-drying and it keeps colors vivid. I can go for a week without any chipping or fading.

Honorable Mention: OPI Drip Dry Lacquer Drying Drops

Best Body Moisturizer
Editors' Pick Winner: Nivea Oil Infused Lotion
Why: This lotion is truly the best of both worlds: The creamy, hydrating texture gets an extra jolt of skin-conditioning moisture, thanks to the oil.

Honorable Mention: Glossier Body Hero Daily Perfecting Cream

Readers' Choice Winner: Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer
Why: What I love about this lotion is that it goes on smoothly and it doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy or oily. It absorbs very quickly and leaves your skin feeling soft and moisturized.

Honorable Mention: Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream

Best Body Wash
Editors' Pick Winner: Love Beauty and Planet Murumuru Butter & Rose Body Wash
Why: Thanks to its luxurious rose scent and its even more luxurious creamy lather, you'd never guess this baby came from the drugstore aisle. What a winner, especially for dry skin.

Honorable Mention: Too Cool for School Coconut Milky Oil Shower Moisturizing Body Wash

Readers' Choice Winner: Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy Body Wash & Foam Bath
Why: These are very nice. The scents are very complex and well scented but without being overwhelming. They are also quite moisturizing!

Honorable Mention: Philosophy Pure Grace Shampoo, Bath & Shower Gel

Best Deodorant
Editors' Pick Winner: Secret Freshies Invisible Solid Antiperspirant Deodorant On-The-Go
Why: Secret deodorant has gotten an adorable, portable makeover. Tiny, on-the-go deodorant pods are perfect for tossing in your bag and applying whenever you need a little extra freshness.

Honorable Mention: Schmidt's Charcoal + Magnesium Mineral Enriched Natural Deodorant

Readers' Choice Winner: Secret Fresh Invisible Solid
Why: This deodorant works very well for me; it keeps me feeling dry all day even if it's super hot and humid out and it gives a nice, subtle scent. I don't apply a lot and it still works. It also doesn't leave any marks on my dark clothing, which is a nice plus.

Honorable Mention: Dove Sheer Fresh Invisible Dry Spray Antiperspirant

Between the endless rows of body lotions, scrubs and washes, perusing the beauty aisles can be intimidating. There are products that promise to transform your body by providing smooth, hydrated and awe-inspiring skin, but based on a lot of trial and error, we know not every product lives up to its claims.

To remove the stress out of a shopping trip that should always be fun (hello, beauty products are involved), we scrubbed, slathered and gooped ourselves up with just about every buzzworthy (and otherwise) body product on the market to bring you the very best of the bunch for our 2018 Total Beauty Awards. Read on to discover this year's must-haves.
