I ONLY use bar soap.

I avoid chemicals and fake perfumes, so I only use soaps that are hand made from organic and natural ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil and olive oil. Right now I am trying a new black soap made from charcoal and it is great at removing impurities in the skin.

I just attended a marine conference where I spoke at length with a representative of 5 Gyres, a non-profit that deals with education about the plastic debris in oceans. The 5 Gyres are 5 areas around the world's oceans where current patterns create massive islands of plastic trash. You may have heard about the one in the Pacific Ocean being the size of Texas; it's not. It's TEN TIMES the size of Texas. There are beaches covered with bits of plastic broken down by sunlight and tumbled into small pieces by wave action; two are on the island of Hawai'i.

Very little plastic is actually recycled, even that thrown into your recycling bins.

This is why I avoid buying products in plastic bottles whenever possible. Our local food coop sells bulk dish washing liquid and liquid laundry detergent that you can fill your own containers with, thereby using the original plastic containers they came in indefinitely.

Bar soap and refillable products all the way for me.

Yep.

Bar soap exclusively for me - mainly because I've never been comfortable with the extra cost and waste associated with the bottled liquid soap, plus I simply don't see any advantage to it.

I use Dove, or more often a goats milk soap sold at my local farmers market by a local couple. Mainly because a single bar lasts FOREVER and they have some insanely lovely scented soap.

I use Neutrogena bar soap. It is easy on the skin, smells nice and cleans well.

How effective are bar soaps for a guy with dry skin. Do they clean your chest hair effectively.

I prefer Redken acid balanced cleansing bar.
Marine Corps based generally have various brands of male body wash. I never believed to be totally cleansed while utilizing body wash.

An the the next time I would have to start from scratch.

I'm curious what type of soap is better for shower clean up, but still good for skin moisturizing.

I used the liquid soaps/pouf combo for a few years & got tired of it. I prefer olive oil or Shea butter bar soaps with a very light scent. I do not like strong perfumy scents.
