I use bar soap twice a day but I will admit good soap is hard to find. I buy soap in a natural food store and if I run out I use Pears glycerine soap. If I can get to the UK there is a great soap called Simple Soap that has no perfumes and is not drying. I would never use Ivory or anything else you get in the drug store as they are too drying. Ivory might get your hands clean but I wouldn't use it all over, especially not on my face.

Bar soap is all I ever use in the bathroom, I use liquid hand soap in the kitchen.

When I was younger I used Zest.....now I use Dove.

Soap? What is this 'soap' of which you speak? I only bathe in the blood of my enemies, for I am a mighty warrior.

I like the olive oil soaps and dr bronners soaps but they're better for more humid weather

Thats a negative on bar soap. I dont feel as clean using bar soap nor do I feel they have a wide array of scents (very limited) compared to body wash. I prefer body wash (usually Axe) and one of those scrubbies. I fell much cleaner and more refreshed going with body wash. Also, compared to bar soap its much less of a mess than some slimy bar soap sitting in a soap dish on the side of the tub.

Right now I am using Amazon.com: Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps Pure-Castile Soap, All-One Hemp Peppermint, 5-Ounce Bars (Pack of 6): Beauty.

I like it. A little drying, but nice.
Funny, I mentioned to a fan of Dr. Bronner's castile soap yesterday that it is so drying for me that using it daily made my skin very dry and itchy. In order to get rid of the supply I had purchased I mixed some jojoba oil into it, which helped a great deal. But I have not bought any since.

However, it doesn't lack for fans.

Yes, to the olive oil soap. I use it for the shower all the time. I like it better than anything else I have ever used.

But Dr. Bronner's, as I have said elsewhere, is much too drying for me to use.

I use this honeycomb based bar soap I got at lush. I use it daily. It's great.

As for the sandalwood that lasts all day, i would just remind you that many people myself included are allergic to sandalwood. It is a strong scent to begin with and if you end up with enough for you to notice it all day it's probably too much for others.
