Same here. I primarily use Mike’s shampoo & bath bars but a quality liquid soap in kitchen & bathroom. 

I don’t sweat the environmental impact of 5-6 bottles a year.

I prefer bars.  They are a much better value.

For OCD reasons I prefer liquid soaps in the kitchen and at the bathroom sink.

In the shower I use both liquid shower gel and a bar of soap.

In the bathrooms we use Dr Bronner in liquid form, but without a pump. Bars are for the shower or tub.
We do this in my house as well. But we dilute Dr. Bronners with water ~1:10 ratio and it works perfectly in a foaming pump.

i'll use just about anything as long as it's not too " girly" the family and i use liquid soap for handwashing. one thing i do sometimes is if i get a shave soap that ain't quite cutting it, i'll use that in the shower and tub. head to toe. not so great shave soap makes real good bath soap.

My dermatologist strongly suggests never using soap out of a bottle. Bar soap is best and Dove is at the top of the list. Not very exciting, but better for your skin.

Strange, but I have also have very good luck with dove bars. I’ll continue to experiment with artisan bar soaps as the scent selection and skin-feel is vastly superior, but will keep backups of dove.

Dove unscented bar soap at our house.  Small refillable pump bottle of liquid soap at the kitchen sink for the aforementioned elbow maneuver.  I build a generous lather with Dove bar soap in the shower and leave that on my face while I complete the remaining real estate. That's my pre-shave prep.  I rinse that off last before heading to the sink for real shave lather.

What about liquid soap did he say is bad?  I A lot of liquid 'soap' tends to be detergents.  Was that was what the doctor was saying to stay away from?

Drying. If you tend towards dry, cracked hands and fingers, like I, liquid soap is not recommended.

I like the pump hand soap because foaming soap is a game changer. For showers, I still use real bars.

I wished I could find a good foaming bottle to purchase. All the foaming options are the small ready to use bottles. I like bulk soap and refillable, but I like the foaming also for several reasons. I use a bar in my master bath and pump else where.

Do you mean you want the foaming soap bulk in a 1/2 or gallon container or  you want the 8 oz bottle itself?  Both are easy to purchase if you look for them.  The foamers require a thinner soap for them to work properly.  Not watered down, just something thinner.

The bottles themselves. I was wanting to try to use bulk. The bottles I have found are pretty bad quality. However, it has been a while since I browsed that item.
