Dr. Bronner's Peppermint.
Thread: What kind of soap do you use?
Its very light and keeps your skin soft while not being overpowered with fragrance...its very neutral. For being able to pick this up at walmart, its rather good.
Dr. Bronner's Peppermint.
Current Top Favorites:
1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
4) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz) - tie
4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie
6) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio)
7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)
9) Javanese Patchouli (Zegna) - tie
9) Monsieur de Givenchy vintage (Givenchy) - tie
9) Coeur de Vetiver Sacré (L'Artisan) - tie

Two of them are fantastic:
Caswell Massey Almond Cold Cream -- A great soap for keeping skin soft, with a light almond scent that is divine, even if I don't use fragrance.
Santa Maria Novella Sapone di Madorle -- This is SMN's almond soap. It is a spicy almond, as opposed to the fresh slightly creamy almond of the Caswell Massey. It is also great for dry skin. The only downside: it's 15.00 a bar, as opposed to about 6.00 a bar for the Caswell Massey.
Current Top Five:
1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
5. Creed Original Vetiver
Nesti Danti bar soaps, Yardley bar soaps, Harrorgate sulphur soaps, Baylis&Harding bar soaps, Alverde organic bar soaps, and, of course, the bar soaps by Dove, preferably the unscented and/or extra sensitive versions.
I'd also like to repurchase the bar soaps by budget brands like Tabac, 4711 and Old Spice, as well as to try the bar soaps by Roger&Gallet, Tesori d'Oriente, Seba Med, and Eucerin.

Mostly Taylors of Old Bonds St. Sandalwood soap bars.
I find they lather really well when used with a shower-puff thing.

I have two good soaps (parts of larger sets): Carolina Herrera for Men and Prada Infusion d'Homme. I used them almost exclusively for face cleaning, very good quality...Sometimes I 'steal' some of my wife's: Dove and Yardley
"I love fragrances because they provide a sheer endless variety: there is a scent for every occasion, mood or feeling. Standing before my collection in the morning matching a perfume to my needs is one of the most enjoyable things in my day"

i use dove men's + care body wash. works well for me
I also use Dr. Bronner's Peppermint. Next, I'm going to try the Eucalyptus version.
These castile soaps totally satisfy my shower/handwashing needs; I consider myself a Dr. Bronner's convert for life.
They are incredibly refreshing and they have an impeccable environmental/ethical record.
Intriguing backstory, too! Not every soap has its own quirky documentary...
With that said, I may try a new brand every once in awhile to experience a new fragrance or just to enjoy a change of pace.
I am planning on getting a couple bars of Speick in the near future. I've heard good things...
Grandmother used it.
Mother used it.
Wouldn't thank you for anything else.
Ross and TJmaxx both have GREAT soaps if you don't mind looking for a good one. I found one that smells IDENTICAL to Dyptiques "Philosykos" for $4.99 a bar. They last forever too! Going on 6 months daily use of the first bar!!!
Greatest buy ever! Bought the store out!
