I really prefer bar soaps and have been looking for some good options. Here are some basic criteria... hard milled soap that lasts a reasonable amount of time ... under $10 a bar … nice scent …. readily available in the USA What are your favs? TIA
Me and the wife have been trying out a billion different bath bar soaps over the last few months. Our favorite so far is a company called - Greenwich Bay. specifically the"Destination Spa" set themed with the scents of different countries, the bars are massive - 6 ounces each... amazon has it for a pretty good price $24 for 6 bars - https://www.amazon.com/Greenwich-Ba...qid=1542699337&sr=8-33&keywords=greenwich+bay
runners up on scent, giant size, and long lasting time - an Australian company - Wavetree & London... they had a "beach" scent that was reeeaaalllly niiiiiice. and also Pre de Provence, they're the size of bricks...we tried the 'rosemary & mint' and liked that alot too. A surprise cheapo bar that turned out to be terrific was a spanish one called Heno de Pravia....not only great as a soap but it also made the whole bathroom smell awesome after using it.
just be careful when ordereing online to double and triple check the descriptions for size, sometimes their wording or math is deceiving.....for bath/shower use you want at a minimum at least 4 ounces per bar. stay away from the gift sets that have the tiny 2 ounce or less bars, they can be ridiculously super tiny.
Most of the time I use Grandpa's Pine Tar soap. It's a good all-round bar soap for hand, shower and hair. With a diluted apple cider vinegar rinse, it's the best dandruff shampoo I've found. As far as scent, I happen to like the tar smell, but it may not be for everyone. For a change of pace body soap, I use Stirling's Rosemary-Mint. Smells great and slightly tingly. It's a good wake-me-up soap.
