What kind of soap do you prefer?

Is it solid or liquid soap? Do you prefer beauty or antiseptic soap? Do you like a soap with a strong scent or the one with a smell you can barely feel? I personally like liquid soaps, however I noticed that solid soap tends to clean my hands more thoroughly in some way. I also like soap with a strong, pleasant scent. What about you, fellow myLotters?

I just use whatever is in the bathroom. I don't care if it's a whitening soap, an aesthetic soap, etc.. I just use it, you know, get in and get out.

Yep. But beware of hair grower soaps. These soaps can grow you hair where ever you spread it. You don't wanna look like king kong coming out of the bathroom.

I love, and solid and liquid soap. I like strong odors because it can understand that your hands are clean and smell good. I think both are good soap for me is important to be able to clean hands and smell good. Interesting discussion. Have a nice day!

Well, you actually named two basic functions of the soap - cleaning and leaving a good scent on your skin! Thanks for your answer! ;)

we regularly use oil based liquid or solid soaps. some products made from herbs and some of oils. these are all give us good bath and make our body fresh. now we can't avoid this cosmetics items. but 50 years before in india according to our siddha Medition, they suggest to use for bath black sand from agriculture fields. it clean our skin protect from skin diseases. i think it is correct. can u accept it?

Well, cleaning yourself with a soil from the fields seems to be something unique that belongs to your culture. Here in Europe we are not used to such things, but I am sure it may be a very special experience! Thanks for sharing an interesting story! ;)

I prefer to use a solid soap. A type of soap with good scent, and at the same time it is a great anti-bacteria. Well, for a month I tried to use a whitening soap but it seems it didn't worked out for me, so i'd better used the one that fights germs away: the one that is safe and smooth for the skin.. :)

It's always useful for the soap to have an antibacterial option. It adds much to the overall level of users hygiene. Thanks for responding! ;)

I prefer liquid soap when I wash my hands. When I take a shower I prefer a solid soap. About the scent I like when it is a mild soft scent. I do not like strong scents. I think when you are clean your own neautral body smell fresh is the best.

I prefer liquid soap more when i'm taking a bath or taking a shower, but i like solid soap when i'm just washing my hands especially before i ate, i think it's more strong, so i think it can clean my hands better. and i like my soap liquid or solid with flower scent, i like it with strong scent, because usually after i rinse it the scent become mild.

It may sounds strange, but it seems to me too that solid bar soap cleans kind of better than the liquid one. I may can be mistaken. Thanks for replying! ;)

i think i am alone on this, but i quite like a bar of soap. there is a little bit of the environmentalist inside me, and i think that a bar of soap is better, as at least the container isn't plastic. though i do have liquid soap in the kitchen, as a bar of soap just seems to dissolve by the kitchen sink, as there is too much water around. i find there isn't much choice now, though, as the shops i go to most frequently only have a couple of choices. there is a health food shop nearby that sells very pleasant smelling soap bars, that i really like when i remember to buy them, but unfortunately, when i need a new one i tend to just buy one from the local shop.

Aha! It's nice that someone here is also thinking about the environment! I am sure you're not alone on using bar soap - some previous responders mentioned they also do. Thanks for your comment, take care! ;)

It depends on where I am going to use it if it is for the hands and face I prefer liquid soap but If it is for the body I stick to solid soap. I prefer white since those colored ones unless its herbal or something like that can be harmful to the skin. I love a soap that leaves a sweet scent on my body. It would be a plus if it has moisturizers so that my skin won't feel dry especially during the rainy or summer seasons.

You're right! Quite often when using colorful soap we don't even bother to think whether the soap may contain harmful colorants or not. Thanks for a good point! ;)

I prefer liquid soap and it should be antiseptic. I like fruit scent because I feel that this is some kind of touch of luxury. Maybe I will be weird here but I prefer blue colour than yellow or red.

I prefer to use liquid soap but my mom use to buy solid soap and that is what I am using it also now a days.It really does not have a strong scent and we also choose the soap that has a moisturizer on it so that our skin will not get dry even it is a solid soap.

I like solid soap with light scent. Strong smelling soap makes my head aches. This is a nice question and I suggest you share this on lifo.com. It's a fun site for girls that lets them share their beauty tips and fashion trends to others.

I prefer liquid soap for bathing and I don't want so scented soap either. I want milder soap for my skin because I wanted a scented lotion more. I usually put a light scent of cologne also right after bathing.

Hi Biomechnoid, I preferred using solid soap because I will be satisfied unlike liquid soap I felt that it will never washes away with water. I do prefer beauty soap specially with those strong scent because it feels me relaxing and refreshing. I also felt that my skin is glowing...

Hi jmay! Glad to hear that someone uses bar soap too these days! I also agree with you - a scent of a soap can play a vital role in an overall emotion that you get when using soap. Thanks for answering, take care! ;)

I prefer liquid soap, but I avoid strong cents,because I'm allergic with strong cent soap especially the colored one. But I'm also using solid soap for my feet,it easily cleanses my toes.

Ah, allergy is one ugly thing! In situation like yours you should be really picky with all those scents available! Thanks for sharing your thoughts! ;)

Okay i change with the season, during the winter I like to use a liquid soap, i think olay is the name :) Its so silky and moisturizes at the same time. But during the summer i use bar soap, a dryer cleaner feeling one, feels less creamy, because i use a lot of sun screen so i need to get it off. I also like it when they smell really good, i sometimes forget to put perfume and people always tell me i smell good no matter what. lol My fav is the one at bath and body works smells like a margarita.

I really like using liquid soap. I hate using the solid soap. It just doesn't work very well for me. Liquid soap is the best kind to get.

I like liquid soap...mainly because it doesn't leave a mess in the sink or in the bath tub. It also is available in so many differnet fragrances! Bar soap is not handy to have around.

I agree, liquid soap is way more easier and cleaner to use! Thanks for responding! :)

Well my favorite brand is Dove. In the liquid form or bar soap. I jus love how it smells and feels on my skin. It just makes me feel extra clean and smelling like a female.

My mother and sister also use Dove. It seems to be a quite gentle soap with a light delicate smell. Thanks for sharing your thoughts! :)
