What kind of cleaner do you use in the shower or bath?

I have noticed more and more people using shower gels to wash with, my wife and kids included. I still prefer a bar of soap, mostly Irish Spring or Coast. I am alergic to Ivory actually, which most people find very odd. What about you? Do you prefer a bar of soap or a shower gel, or even a combination? I do use a facial cleanser for my face and head, since I am bald I don't really need shampoo. I know a lot of people that brush their teeth in the shower too, what about you?

I prefer shower gel. My favorite scent is vanilla. I'm actually allergic to Irish Spring and coast. They make my eyes puff all up and turn red.I use an apricot scrub on my face. I have never brushed my teeth in the shower.

Vanilla is a very good smell...I like it a lot. I tried an apricot scrub and I just didn't like it very much, though my wife loves it. I don't brush in the shower either. Thanks for the response.

I do keep both the shower gel and soap handy in the bathhroom.Mostly I prefer to use the the shower gel.Once in a while i take to the soap.For my face I always use a facial cleanser as its very mild.

Thanks for your response. The facial cleansers do seem to be better on my face than the harsh soaps too.

You're allergic to Ivory? That's pretty odd, but oh well maybe your skin type is allergic to it's ingredients (or to anything pure.. joke). I still use bar of soap -- Ivory (the one that floats). I prefer bar of soap because it doesn't leave the icky feeling. I don't like shower gels because they leave my skin too icky and I don't feel clean when that happens. Anyways, I use lotion afterwards so I don't need the icky feeling after showering. I don't usually brush my teeth in the shower. But sometimes I do. I love inspecting my teeth while brushing that's why I usually do it in front of my mirror in my sink. =)

I don't like the way the gels make me feel either...I just don't feel very clean after I use them. I know it is crazy to be allergic to Ivory because it is pure. Thanks for the response.
