I find gels superior for the body because I can pour it into my bath brush and hands and apply it evenly all over the body.
With a bar bath soap this can't be done or take far more work.

What's the catch here ?

Rubbing the bar of soap on a bath-cloth or sponge works quite well and it doesn't take much time.  Shy

Okay you're right, Celestino.

But I personally find that in the better shower Gels and body washes I get superior moisturising abilities and easier and better lather abilities.

I did some reading regarding this. Turns out they can better put extra moisturising ingredients in a fluid soap than they can in a bar of soap. The fluid soap also takes less work to lather up.

Speick makes some very nice body wash. 

Check it out when you have a moment.

Just started a 300g bar of Saponifico Verasino Citrus Orange. It's a massive bar, smells amazing , and largest like a dream. It kind of reminds me of Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine.

Using Yardley English Lavender. If I could get this scent in a shaving cream, I could die a happy man. Incredible.

Yes, I agree. The scent is fantastic. I would love to see the return of Yardley's Shaving Soap.

It is a nice, but not overwhelming fragrance.

Does anyone knows of any mentholated bath soap in the realm of cyrogen/arctique ?

I live in Asia and right now with the heat i feel like a frog being slowly boiled in a pot. I liberally dab arctique on my washcloth and lather with my regular soap thereafter and I'm still shivering 20mins in the morning sun over here. Would like more of this freezing experience.

Note: I bought off the shelf menthol before and it wasn't this cold.

Edit: 
If you have a few minutes to spare, you can read below and be thankful you don't stay in Asia this month.

Dr Bronners has a nice peppermint soap. It's obviously not loaded up on menthol. But it should have a nice cooling affect

Right on. Dr. Bronners is pretty widely produced so luck to you grabbing some. It's pretty dang nice stuff. I think Tom's of Maine makes peppermint soap too but obviously you eill have a hard time finding that 10,000 miles away from Maine haha

Got some tallow bath soap.
Yardley was something I rarely see. Approx 4 usd for 4 bars. The dalan was at 1ish usd for 4.

Yardley really lather well and creamy not sure if it's tallow or all the shaving have went to my head. Will probably last 30-60 days my guess.

There were other tallow bath soap in store but I didn't pick those up.

I bought one here recently.  Probably the best soap I have ever smelled!!!  I just bought PDP No. 93 body lotion.  Hoping that smells just as wonderful.

L'Occitan (L'Occitane en Provence) ★★★★★. Lavender and black pepper with a dash of vetiver. It's endurance is impressive. A little 100 gram bar will last us six weeks. It leaves you feeling clean, but not parched. The EdT is more complex with hints of citrus and woods. L'Occitan is marketed as a masculine scent, but my wife loves it, too.
