We have both in our shower. Whatever I use, I use something like this: http://www.amazon.com/Leyjie-Japanese-Beauty-Towel--Aquamarine/dp/B000MZX6QI/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1306065467&sr=8-4
These cloths are amazing. I also recommend them to any of my darker skin toned ladiess who ever complain about ashy skin. Scrub well, moisturize after. Glowing skin.
I've found these in my local grocery store as well as the DFAS Commissary.

I hate bodywash, using it just leaves you still feeling dirty whilst bar soap leaves you actually feeling clean. After moving in together, I converted my girlfriend from using bodywash to bar soap and we haven't looked back although we have compromised on brands. I prefer Irish Spring, she likes Dove (her bodywash brand was Dove), so we use Dove bar soap.

Bar soap = clean.

bar soap. I'm a man. If you're a man you use bar soap. period. You have to use one that really hurts if it gets in your eyes too, and if it smells good, it's for chicks.

if you use body wash you may as well wear a dress.

FYI - body soap won't leave a ring around the tub like bar soap does - i hate cleaning the tub

I've been using Oil of Olay body wash since Proctor and Gamble gave out a full-bottle sample during an info session while I was in college 15 years ago. I have changed out my loofah a couple of times since then, but have stayed loyal to that brand.

@vinithehat: How is bodywash a scam?

@sykotek: That "clean" feeling you get with soap is because of the harsh detergents stripping away all of your skin's oils. That's actually terrible for your skin.

I use bodywash, in case it wasn't obvious. Old Spice, specifically.

Orange scented aromatherapy body wash with a puff net thingy.

Body wash. Been using them for years. Love them.

@stryker4526: A diluted foaming agent passed off as "cleanser." If youre dirty, use soap. If you're not particularly dirty you don't even need soap.

@vinithehat: Really? You're linking me to a comedian for "further research?"
Righto, now I can go ahead and discount what you have to say on the matter.
Bodywash contains detergents. They are just not as harsh as those found in bar soap. Milder detergents are better for your skin and unless you're really effing dirty you don't need harsh detergents.

Body wash and loophuh to scrub off the dirt and sweat after gym/running.

I work in Baltimore, so really nothing removes the grime quite like Lye. Bonus: Lutefisk & Zongzi.

@stryker4526: first: soap doesnt contain "detergents" it is soap, simple saponified animal or vegetable fat. second: its soap, relax.

Bar soap for sure...cheaper, less waste (think plastic container vs. paper), don't have to use a germ-inviting puffy thing, and when compared by volume, the bars last a lot longer than liquids.

Neutrogena body wash. My sweetie is allergic to many bar soaps and scented things. She can handle this gloop, though, so that's what we use. It does have a nice stink to it. Kinda grapefruity.

I use body wash, but I think what it comes down to your skin type, everyone is different, so different products will not work the same for everyone.

Oh and with body wash you don't have to worry about dropping the soap :o

vote-for2vote-against

@vinithehat: Well I suppose that depends on how you define "detergent." I use the "any cleansing agent" definition. If you use the definition that excludes soaps, you're right.
Either way, body wash is better for your skin than bar soap.

Irish Spring Bar soap with micro-scrubbing beads in it. It's like sandpaper soap and I love it.

For the shower I use a body wash only when I'm feeling particularly icky. I use Tree Hut Brazilian Nut. It smells like Coffee, Caramel, Vanilla and Chocolate as you scrub with it.

For the sink bar soap all the way. I have a bar that's lasted over a year and a half now and is still like 75% of its original size. Extremely economical that one. I believe its a Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day Lavender bar soap.

I personally use bar soap, I'm not a big fan of body wash.

bar soap definitely. Dont like to throw empty plastic bottles in trash or in recycle bin.

vote-for3vote-against

@wootbretz: Hah! Really I do, but I don't pick the bar up to lather or anything, I wet my hands then just rub one on top of the bar for a few seconds, then rub my hands together. It's just the right amount of soap, and no waste from holding it under the water.

I use a Manly Body Wash.

I used to use bar soap, but the detergents were causing allergies, so I migrated to glycerin soaps, which are decidedly less manly. So far, Gillette's stuff seems to work fine.

I'd be interest to know if anyone has gone the route of no shampoo.

Am I the only one who uses both?

I use a bar soap to actually clean my body thoroughly; it's really the only thing that will properly remove my anti-perspirant and other grime I may happen upon. To combat its drying effect, I just choose one with a moisturizer. Right now, my bar of choice is Irish Spring Moisture Blast.

I use body wash as a sort-of second coat, pretty much just for the smell and lasting effect. I rarely ever use it on its own, because - even with a luffa or cloth - it just doesn't clean as well a bar soap. I keep a mixture of body washes depending on the occasion: Gillette Odor Shield for a long work day, Old Spice Swagger for a night out, and Axe Dark Temptations for a night in.

I probably put too much thought into it.

After years of dealing with soggy, messy and dirty bars of soaps unless I used a mini bar, I began using Anti- bacterial Body wash and I have had less mess, colds, and feel much cleaner. If you get the store brand it's not a bad deal either.

Im a man so I use body wash with a big ass awesome looking loofah(sp?). With some good ass smelling Old Spice body wash.

@woothulhu: I will agree that sandpaper soap rocks. If I do have to use bar soap, I want it to be something that scrubs me and makes me feel clean.

vote-for2vote-against

I'm a bar soap guy most of the time. But sometimes, if I need a good scrub, I'll lather up a pouf with something from my wife's stash and go to town. I just find it takes longer because I tend to scrub more with the pouf.

And now, for the Arrested Development fans ...

Bar soap all the way. the other stuff always seems to leave a film that I can't ever get off regardless of how much rinsing I do.

Nope - neither - it's Dr. Bronners for me! Peppermint is the only one I use. Gets you clean, smelling good and leaves feeling TINGLY all over!
