I remember s a kid we had bar soap in the bath and shower.  It would get slimy and disintegrate if it was left in the bottom of the tub.  It made me feel “squeaky” clean and smelled like my nana.  Then all the new shower gels came out with so many different scents in giant plastic bottles.  We churned through those things in our family of 5.  Now with my own family of 4, we have headed back in the bar soap direction but in a way that is a lot nicer on our skin and the environment.

From Leigh – We’ve been using Native and Ethique for the last year or so.  The Native bars were really nice scents and the kids liked the coconut & vanilla scent.  I bought the Ethique Lime & Ginger bar for Christmas and am really liking it.  My skin doesn’t feel dry after use and the scent isn’t over powering.
