    Default Soap or Body Wash?

    Do you use soap or body wash? What brand and scent do you like the best? I really love Philosophy but am not willing to spend so much any more and am looking for a cheaper alternative.

    I use softsoap body wash. I get the 2 packs of the bigger bottles for about $3.50 a few times a year, or if im lucky the dollar tree gets in the single big bottles and i go crazy with that. I like a mix of scents from vanilla brown sugar to freesia and i have a huge mix in my stock pile. Guess it depends when im taking my bath/shower and what mood im in. If i want something to relax i use a gentle floral, if i want something to wake me up anything with a fruit scent.

    I really don't have a preference. I use one of those puffy sponges so it all bubbles up the same. Only my face is sensitive to different soaps.

    I just use whatever is in there. Usually it's a bar of dial antibacterial soap. Sometimes I get a sample in the mail and I'll use that.

    For the most part I use bar soap. Right now I have a choice between Dove and Irish Spring. Maybe once a year I'll treat myself to a nice body wash from Bath & Body Works.

    I prefer a body wash. I use Suave Naturals Cucumer Melon body wash. It smells so good and is priced reasonably.

    I use bodywash and I use anybrand that is free after coupons and or rebaits. I was able to get 12 bottels of softsoap bodywash from cvs last month for free, 1 large bottle from walgreens this week at better than free and a bottle of Dove bodywash for .49. Im set for the year for less than .49.
    At these prices it doesnt make sense for me to buy bars of soap.

    Body wash for sure! I love Bath and Body Works and most of their scents. Currently I'm using Vanilla Brown Sugar. I buy it a couple of times a year when it is on sale. Since it's just me, it lasts a really long time.

    I use bar soap, whatever brand. Not picky. But I get free bodywash whenever I can from Walgreens (like AnnK) and use it in hand soap dispensers. I really like it for that, and I never seem to find liquid handsoap for free. Like someone else, since it's just me, both bodywash/hand soap and bar soap last a long time.

    I love body wash and I have tons of philosophy items BUT friends gave it to me as presents and stuff or I swapped them for other stuff.

    We use body soaps around here. I usually just buy whatever the cheapest is. My DD prefers Dove so it is a treat when she gets it

    I LOVE Philosophy but their product line is pricey for my budget so it's a rare occassion that I buy one of their products or if I happen to be lucky to win. So, I stick to the samples/wins that I recieve in the mail and buy whatever is on sale between the brands that I like at my local grocery store or health food store. Most of the time, I use soap.

    I love Bath and Body Works. I only buy at the semi-annual sale and I usually buy enough to make it until the next one. I'm thinking there should be one coming up in the middle of June. I like all of the scents with the exception of Plumeria and I have never liked that one. If I had to pick a favorite scent, I would say Warm Vanilla Sugar & Moonlight Path.

    I used Body Wash. Oil of Olay for extra dry skin. It has shea butter in it and I hardly have to use any lotion...so I save alot of money there. This body wash is at the Sam's Club which I am not a big fan of, but, I won't use anything else and I can get 2 big bottles and 1 small travel bottle for the price of one anywhere else. I guess you could say this is the one thing I do splurge on...Kathy
