It has nothing to do with the nastiness of using somebody else's used bar... the problem is is that bar soap almost instantly makes you feel like you are coated in candle wax that will never rinse off. Although I must admit, it doesn't bother many people so I am forced to conclude that either a) different people have different skin, or b) we have the same skin but some people don't care about that terrible feeling.

As far as personal preference, I get bar soap - there are lots of different scents. Some affect the skin more than others, everyone is different on that.

Cost - bar soap is WAY cheaper, and I think each bar lasts longer, to. So you're talking about a price difference of about 10x.

As far as guests and used bar soap, I definitely hear. On the other hand, with body wash, you're using a loufa anyway, presumably? So unless you bring your own loufa, the only difference is that you can't see the hairs.

+1 I agree with your wax description. I was never able to properly describe the nasty feeling.

No you are not using a loofa. Do you use a loofa to wash your hands at the sink?

Are you a girl? (No offense if you are.) Put the liquid in your hand. Just like you do with the bar soap except you will actually become clean and not just cover your own dirt with a waxy, itchy film.

No popcorn in the shower.

In that case, I'll up the estimate of price factor difference. Are we talking about a difference of 20x?

And as an aside, I use a loufa for bar soap, as well.

If your bar soap makes your skin feel like wax then you need to get a new brand of soap!
Try "dove" brand soap and get back to me :) you will love it!

The residues left behind by soaps are often due to chemicals in the water making soap scum
