bar of soap or body wash

Post by Covar » Sat May 17, 2008 10:19 am

So I've always used regular old bar soap when I take showers, but since I need to buy more soap and theres a ton of commercials out there for body wash I figured I find out if one was better than another. So what do you guys use, and why?

Bar, because I don't feel I'm actually getting clean with some soap gel.

Body wash. Teamed up with one of those bath sponges, I feel like it works better than bar soap and a wash cloth.

A lot of it honestly depends on what makes you feel clean.

For me, I have to use bar soap, and generally try to use Zest when I do. Any other soap, especially liquid body wash, never feels like it completely rinses off of me. It always leaves me feeling kind of slimy.

My wife, OTOH, can't stand the dry feeling she gets from using bar soap. If she doesn't have that "moisturized" feeling from body wash (she interprets it as being moisturized - I interpret it as feeling kind of slimy), she can't stand it.

It's all a matter of personal preference, but if you're used to using bar soap, using body wash will probably feel really weird for a while. You might like it or you might not.

I'm just using a shampoo ("Kür: Mandelmilch") for my entire body when taking a shower:

I use both. I use a bar and a washcloth to get the stinkables (pits, crotch, ass, and sometimes feet) and use bodywash with a bath poof to clean everything else.

I use body wash. Bars just never really leave me feeling that much cleaner afterward.

I use Body Wash. It makes you feel clean, and can also smell better.
OOH! YA! Duffman Says a lot of things.

Exactly. I just wash with a soap bar.

A bar of soap (no washcloth) at the start of the shower, bodywash near the end. Actually it's not manly body wash, its Johnsons Baby Bath liquid soap. :oops:

No, I don't have a pink loofah. My bottom is pink and shiny after using Johnsons Baby Bath though.

Why didn't you say anything about AgentGreen's bath poof?

Shower gel all the way, using a bar of soap would take forever. Plus bars of soap seem a bit unsanitary to me- I don't really want to rub my body with something that's been rubbed on other people's genitals tbh.

That's why you have separate soaps. I know I use Irish Spings, my roomate uses plain ol' Dove.

Actually it's amazing how many grown people use the baby bath, baby lotion, stem cells, and whatever else byproducts of babies there are. :lol:

I think I was but your post was last so that one just begged to have something said. Also the more thought I put into it, it doesn't have the same effect. I would expect him to have several different kinds of loofahs specifically designed to reach various places such as pits, crotch, ass, and sometimes feet. But he uses a bar on those areas.

It's a bar of soap. As soon as water hits it, the part of the soap that touched another person's genitals is down the drain.

Body wash, simply because it's easier to clean up off the tub. Bar soap makes soap scum that is hard work to get off.

Bar of soap is enough for me, and it does make me feel fresh afterwards.
