uhhh.... i was in the shower and i got to thinking about the soap i use. ive been using Irish Spring fairly exclusively for years, and if not that then whatever small bar of hotel soap i can swipe.
maybe i need to venture out and try some other types. i'm open to trying new things.
with all the recent rage about body washes and a myriad of types of bar soap it seems absurd to buy one of each type and try them all out, it'd take me years to come to a conclusion.
so what type of soap does everyone use?
the ones that make you smell nice?

BodyShop fruity soaps, 3 for a fiver, the kinda translucent looking ones.

I only use soap if it's on a rope.
The disclaimer on that thing only seems to note the dangers of ingestion. I'm sure that using it as a body cleanser, eye-drops, and/or moisturizer is perfectly safe.
Right now I've got a bar of dove in there, but I've experimented with just about everything, depending on my budget. I've used shampoo and dish soap in the past. I might add turp to the list in the future...
What soap do you use on your calculator?

Oh Lush, bless you and your over-priced but sumptuous looking bath products... which reminds me, I need more vanilla bubble bath bars that explode pink glitter everywhere.

I usually wash with St. Ives Cucumber and Melon or Citrus scent body wash. Any kind of soap product has to be gentle because my skin is just super sensitive. For shampoo and conditioner I just bought this stuff by Sexy Hair that smells like pumpkin spice (it smells really really good!). So I get out of the shower smelling all fruity and spicy. Even my hairspray smells like melon. =p
mmm, peppermint shampoo on a loofa, and some body wash for my hair
