Some women swear by bar soap for their face... some women hate it. I know that I have gone back and forth over the years. Most of the time, I find a bar just a little bit too drying for my oily skin. I would love to hear what you are using. Can you imagine what it must have been like for our female ancestors!! They used to use this red soap for most of their cleaning... but I don't know if they would have used in on their face?

I just use shower gel and those face wipe things in the day if I get sweaty. I never use normal soap.

@Hate2Iron The lotion helps somewhat, i woke up this morning and had flakes right by the hairline and it was so itchy i actually put lotion in my head because it was so bad.

I use a bar soap. I'm not so keen on other types.

Earlier I was using bar soap But, nowadays not. I am using only a facewash on the suggestion of my wife as my skin is oily.

I do not use the same bar soap that I use for my body. I use a makeup remover first than a cleanser. I have a sensitive skin, the soap did nothing good to my skin.

I think bar soap makes me break out. I usually just use my face wash.

I use bar soap as most cleansers I am allergic to so I stick with the same old soap. I think they probably had some issues also but of course didn't talk about them.
