I use body wash in the shower and have always used whatever is on sale at the market.

does anyone use anything that has less chemicals in it?

do any of our vendors/artisans make a body wash?!

For the last year I've been using Every Man Jack body wash. I really like the Citrus and the Cedarwood. The Sandlewood smells "fake" to me though. I like that I can buy it at Target. Seems to have "good stuff" in it, essential oils and glycerine, makes my skin feel good. I think they're around $5 a bottle and last me 3 to 4 weeks.

If you happen to be a fan of that Tabac scent, they make a great body wash. And the scent is spot on with the shaving soap and also the aftershave splash.

I'll have to check it out when I get some time.

surprisingly, I don't have a problem with the smell of tabac.

I wish I could get a bar of soap to lather up very well on my loofah without having to continually go back to it to add more soap to it.

that's something I like about body wash: it seems to lather up incredibly well.

I'm very tempted to buy a few of Mike's Natural body soaps to see how they do.

This is the reason I have not purchased any of the artisan soaps. I too wish I could get soaps lathered up on a loofah, I cannot use wash cloths, they just roll up on me.

I sent Mike an e-mail to see if his body soaps lather up well.

I really hope that it does because his soap is incredibly popular.

For a while I've been using old spice 2 in 1 (shampoo + body wash). Just yesterday I received a shampoo bar from Mikes natural soap that I'm using for my entire body since I have very very short hair (clippers). I used it for the first time today and after a few circles on my head and under my arms it created a ton of lather. It was great to use. I wasn't overly fond of the scent of the shampoo bar but it wouldn't stop me from ordering it again.

Dr Bronner's Castile Liquid Soap works well for me, and it don't have any chemicals in it that isn't needed.

When I'm in a rush - ie: spend too long shaving - I simply uses Mike's shampoo bar all over... I'm that shaggy Tongue

do you happen to have a loofah that you'd be able to test the bar with?

that's the only thing holding me back at the moment from buying a few bars of his bath soaps: whether it lathers up well with a loofah. I suppose I could just rub the puck over my body and then come back and hit it with a loofah.

I don't sorry, and this is the shampoo bar so I'm not sure if it lathers more/easier than regular soap. I don't see why you couldn't make a lather on yourself and use a loofah with it.

in the past I would rub the bar of soap on the loofah directly.

it just so happens that my body wash was empty when I went to use it tonight for my shower. my wife ended up having a bar of black soap in the shower that I used.

I wound up rubbing the entire bar all over my body and then going back with the loofah to work the soap in. It definitely didn't lather well, though I don't know if that soap produces a good lather on its own.

Novice, here. I've tried Dial Gold and it doesn't feel like it rinses off completely, like a layer of "slick" has been left behind on the skin, at least until toweling off. Is this normal for liquid body washes?
