I use the same brand/type for both bar and body wash. I think theres pros and cons of both. I do agree body wash is wasteful because I feel I always use too much where a bar is automatically rationed. I like both and I wash my hands with liquid only due to OCD.
I use body wash only! I can't use alot of bar soaps strangely i am allergic to alot of bar soaps but i can use the same brand in body wash for example i can't use dial bar soap but i can use dial body wash. So weird yes i know can't seem to figure out why either. But to me body wash is more cleaner i think bar soap is not clean bc once you use it your germs are left on it. Idk im just more a body wash person. My favorite brands are caress, ivory and olay ribbons!
