Does anyone still use bar soap over liquid?

Maybe a stupid question, I know they sell lots of it, but bar soap just seems so messy now that liquid in a bottle seems more pleasing... just curious?

  • I use both but I love bar soap, it cleans my skin way better than liquid soap. I usually alternate though because I can get dry skin so I try not to over clean too often. So I scrubbed using bar soap last night so this morning and later this evening when I shower I'll use a shower cream as my skin doesn't need such a deep clean.

  • Most liquid soap (except dish detergent like dawn) has not just soap, but also moisturizers (aka oil) in it. When I just want to get clean, and not moisturized, I prefer bar soap.

    Also, my kids used to make a big mess out of bar soap by trying to squeeze the bars. Somehow, they grew out of that. What they seem incapable of growing out of, though, is making a big mess of liquid soap. They always drip it over the container, the sink, etc. Furthermore, the soap container needs regular cleaning, the bar of soap is self-cleaning.

    It isn't quite a liquid -- more a paste -- but paste hand cleaner can be much more effective than even bar soap on removing grease and intense grime. Sure, there are bar soaps with pumice, but even those don't have the solvents that some hand cleaner pastes do.

  • Over the sinks = Liquid soap
    In the shower = Bar soap

    Liquid soap: Less messy, more hygienic, more effective for me and way more comfortable.

    Bar soap: Some certain brands for my face and body specially my face, a good way to protect my face against unnecessary pimples since i have one of those stupid sensitive skins.

  • I have a few nice bar of boutique soaps I bought from around the world and an artisan soap I bought from a nice little art shop by the pier.
    I don't really use them but I like soap... they smell nice... huh... guess I'm a soap collector now.

  • Bar soap contains alcohol, so after the gym I try to scrub down real good to get all the dirty bacteria off of me. It dries my skin out in the winter time though.

  • Bar soap only, cleans better and dries the skin.
    I have very greasy skin, and the oil based moisturizing shower gels just make it worse.

  • You do realise that liquid soaps have more carcinogens in them and can predispose you to skin cancer right?

  • I used to buy an antibacterial liquid soap. I read the information written on the bottle, and it clearly stated that it is harmful to aquatic animals. Once I use it up, I'm going to revert to soap bars. The less chemical ingredients the better.

  • It's funny because I use body wash, and I bought my boyfriend a bottle like 9 months ago because he was staying over at my apartment before we moved in together so he could shower. He, for whatever reason, prefers bar soap and only occasionally uses the body wash I bought him. Lol. So some people do.

  • You'd think body wash (liquid soap) would be more messy lol I use just that as you can lather yourself up more efficiently then a bar of soap.

    I use goats milk soap with exfoliating beads from those body shops (they smell so delicious and really great for your skin) whenever I have one that is :)

  • We use bar soaps from the market, the home made ones. It's not my choice, my husband loves "fancy soap" and he cleans the bathroom so I don't really care what we use 😜
