I use facial wash, it cleans my face thoroughly and leaves my face soft and smooth. :-) Yes a lot of soap contains too much chemicals that could harm our face, so its not advisable to use soap on our face. If you are not fond of facial wash, use a mild soap instead like ivory soap. :-)

I used facial wash its more good to your face than a soap who can make your face dry more. So, your probably right livinhell01.

I use face wash to clean my face.it is very good for skin. All soaps are not really meant for face skin care. soaps are very hursh on our skin. So it is recomended to use face wash than soap. soap is for other skin care not for skin. Here in India Ponds face wash is good for skin care and its price is also very low.

I always use soap when i wash my face because I've tried many facial washes before and it gave me lots of white heads and all that including pimples. I thought I was sensitive or maybe I haven't found what's good for my face so I started using soap. A whitening soap and it has good effects on me so I stayed using soap like forever.

I prefer to use bar soap which contains triclosan, anti bacterial protection, and moisturiser. I dont want to use face wash, some products are not fit for me, and i feel weird after... some even makes my face oily... Hmm... I dont like my skin become oily, so i prefer to make a little dry...

I use Neutrogena that is a glyerine based soap. I have slightly oily skin and it works quite well, not drying or anything. I have not tried any face wash, mainly because I am on a strict budget, but I suppose for someone like me, financial wise, Neutrogena or Ivory would be good. Most of the other soaps are drying, and make my face feel tight. If I can find a face wash that is economical, I would try it.

i usually use water and soap, sometimes also an astringent like sea breeze. my soap doesn't seem to make much of a difference in what it does to my skin, though if i had prolbems i might try something different. i've used a lot of face washes before but realized there wasn't anything all that special to them.
