Everybody uses soap when they take a shower or bath to cleanse their skin. Whilst soap is generally used for cleaning some types of soaps still have disadvantages here are some: - Most commercial soaps have had their glycerine removed for use in other industries, which deprives the skin of the natural, moisturizing glycerine and generally leaves the skin feeling dry. - Some antibacterial soaps have antiseptic chemicals that can kill "healthy" bacteria that live symbiotically on the skin's surface and contribute to skin health. - Soap-based products often contain the additive detergent sodium laureth sulfate, which research has found to be harsh on skin. This product is also present in many non-soap cleaners for personal hygiene (shampoos, bathfoams, toothpaste, etc.). Personally I use NEOLIA OLIVE OIL Soap mixed with Aloe Vera, it cleanses the dead cells without drying my skin, it doesn't contain any harsh or strong smell. So what type of Soap or Shower Gel you use? Why do you picked that brand?

I use products from Lush.com. They are all natural, organic and vegetarian - most are even vegan. They make soaps, shampoos, shower gels, conditioners, face care, skin care, deoderants, toothpastes, bath products etc. They don't use harsh chemicals which I think is great.

I like some soaps of Lush, but whenever I go inside their store my head aches because of the overwhelming smell, so if I'll buy something I usually look it up on the net before going to the store. Thanks!

i like st. ives "Swiss vanilla" nourishing shower gel because it smells really good and milky and i like the feeling after my bath, my skin feels so smooth, somewhat like a baby's. :)

I know St.Ives but I haven't tried the Swiss Vanilla yet, maybe I'll buy one next time I go shopping. Thanks for replying.

We usually buy the caress body wash. It has a lustrous finish on the skin. Sometimes I buy shower gels from Marks and spencer, mainly because of the smell. I like the scent it leaves on the skin.Sometimes I do not read the ingredients, if I do not like the scent I do not buy it. I prefer to use body wash or shower gels since it is easy to use and I do not stay longer inside the bathroom.

My husband used to have a Marks & Spencer body wash, too bad he forgot it in the baketball gym's shower room when he got back it was gone.

I use Safeguard soap for washing my hands and St.Yves body wash to shower myself. I like them because they really clean.

We use dove soap. It doesn't leave alot of soap scum behind and its been reccomended by my dr and my daughters dr. My daughter breaks out often so dove is the best for us.

dove soap - I like Dove it's so soft to the skin but for now I'm using the Olive Oil soap.
When my son had skin rashes I first used Dove Soap on him before the doctor prescribed Oilatum. I like Dove it's so soft to the skin but for now I'm using the Olive Oil soap.
