I never put much thought into bath soap. Really I just use what my wife buys which are usually what I consider pretty fancy European soaps. At least the packaging looks high end and they work well. I did recently buy a Mitchells Wool Fat when I got my shave soap. Haven't tried it yet.

Stirling bath soaps were the ones that convinced me to use only real soap bars, and continue to be the the best of the artisan soaps I use.  Their products are also consistently the best value in soaps available.  I keep coming back to them.  

The only other soap that I very much like is the Pre de Provence No. 63 scented bath soap.  Nothing seems to match that scent for me.

Mike's Soaps, Mystic Waters (especially their shampoo bar), and Claus Porto soaps are all close in the running after Stirling and PdP for me.

The olive oil soaps from my region are what we use.

Thank you for this! These are exactly what I've been searching for, both the bath soaps and shampoo bars.

Ive been on a kick the last couple months with Mystic Water's everything. Foot scrubs, shampoo bars, avocado castile soaps, talc free powders, and had cream. Michelle makes awesome soaps and a variety of other items. I just got a couple veggie soaps from Italy to use in the shower soon.

Mystic Water makes very good bath soaps.  My favorite is the unscented Avocado Castile, which is 90% olive oil and 10% avocado oil.

I think that is the one I got and it does go through a bit faster being softer but you don't need much to use on the skin. Once again, it's great Michelle can make a great soap such as this along side many of the exfoliating soaps.

CRSW Schapenmelk is pretty darn good bath soap. My wife loves it too so that's a nice bonus.

In addition to the Mystic Water Avocado Castile (90% olive oil and 10% avocado oil), which I mentioned in post # 67 above, the following bath soaps by CRSW and Siliski Soaps are all excellent.

I use Honest Amish soaps.  They make one called SLICK that I use to wash my beard, hair, and body.  You can look it up at HONESTAMISH dot COM.

The Country Escape makes excellent bath soaps.  They don't have very strong fragrances, but they are large, they lather well, and they last a long time.

This is an excellent soap.  You will like it.  I also recommend the other CRSW bath soap - Shapenmelk.  It's made with sheep tallow and sheep milk.  It's currently sold out.  However, Larry has advised me that he has another batch curing and it should be ready in about 10 days.

Bath soaps?  I can't remember the last time I took a bath.  I think it was when I was a teen and had the chicken pox and got into a tub with epsom salts.  My problem is that now I displace so much water, I can never judge how much to put in the tub without it overflowing when I get in.  Therefore, it's only showers for me.

Dr Bronner's bath soaps are superb quality, I've tried the artisan bath soaps and these are better. 

For hand wash, I dilute their liquid soap and put it in a foaming hand wash container. Commercial hand soaps tend to burn your hands if used too frequently, this is far more gentle.

Coco Chanel or Dove, both would be a good option, what do you guys think?

I've tried alot and still end up back on Stirling's bath soaps.  Tallow-based so its not as hard on the skin as most of the vegetable-based soaps, excellent lather, and quite a few excellent scents (Hipster is my new favorite!).

Not a big fan of his shave soaps, but the bath soaps can't be beat IMO!
