The Best Bar Soaps

Back to Basics: The Best Bar Soaps

Despite the plethora of body washes and fancy-scented soaps that I have in my bathroom cabinet, there's just something about old-school bar soaps that's appealing. Although they can be a bit drying on my face (I know, heaven forbid my face actually touches a bar soap), they make my body feel fresh and clean. Also, call me a sap, but they remind me of my parents' house where I grew up. Below are three of my favorite no-frills body bars that have a long-standing great reputation. What's your favorite bar soap?

Dove Beauty Bar ($1.49) lathers easily and has a refreshing scent, but what I love most is that it washes away completely and leaves my skin feeling smooth without leaving behind any of that oily after-effect. Also, the price really can't be beat — and it gets even lower per bar if you buy it in bulk.

Zum Bar Rosemary Goat's Milk Soap ($5.30) has an amazing and invigorating herbal, spa-like essence. It is made from all-natural ingredients and is super gentle on my skin. It cleanses deep within my pores and never ever makes me feel dry and crackly.

For one last oldie but goodie bar soap,


Ivory soap (3 bars for $1.39) is a classic of its own kind. It's inexpensive, it smells great, and it brings me back full-circle to my childhood. In fact, to this day my mom still showers with Ivory. Unfortunately, this is one product that doesn't bode well on my face (it's just a tad too drying), but my body always responds well. It's never caused any irritations or blotchiness in all these years!
