  • Body wash and for the same reason! lol Even though it's soap, it just doesn't seem clean if everyone else is using it lol.

  • Dh and I use liquid soap because we both get our own "smell" as he calls it. He can use guy stuff, and I get extra moisturizer for my smoother skin! Plus the bar (i find) leaves a residue on the side of the tub or wherever you leave it!

  • My son's Dr. said bar soap can pick up bacteria sitting there in a wet soap dish, so I prefer a body wash.

  • I prefer bodywash, for one I have super dry skin, and bar soap just dries me out even more. Plus bodywash always smells a LOT better!

  • body wash for 2 reasons. one, i have super dry skin & need a completely scentless moisturizing soap (while DH likes his to smell like guy). two, i like using a loofah cause i feel so much cleaner than when i use a washrag, and its really hard to use bar soap w/ a loofah.

  • SO & I use body wash...I like it cause it smells better, the smell lasts longer, and I just feel cleaner using it. My kids use bar soap, b/c the one time I bought them body wash, they poured the entire bottle into the bath. When they get a little older and a little more trustworthy with it, they'll use body wash.

  • I use the liquid body wash. I find there's less waste in what just sort of disintegrates in the shower (plus I think a slimy soap bar is gross). Also, with the type of washcloths we use (we use "scrubbies" and the coarsely woven exfoliating washcloths), the liquid soap works better.

    I agree about the mystery hair thing though - that would be gross to find on the soap, but since we all use a different soap (my dh and I share a bathroom and our 2 teenagers share a bathroom. My dh and ds use the same sort of soap, but different showers, so we need 2 bottles. My dd and I each have a soap that we prefer.)

  • body wash, I get enough of my hub's scum so I only use soap if I forgot to stock up
