Have you noticed that bar soap is really making a comeback, even for the face?
I’m not sure if it’s just me, but somewhere along the way it was drilled into me to never put soap near my face. Especially bar soap. Thanks, mom! (?)
And she was right, generally you shouldn’t use a simple soap on the face as the skin is so much more sensitive there than on the body — certain skin types should just avoid water altogether.
But recently it feels like a surge of options for bar soap specifically for the face, and more than often in a charcoal or all-natural variation. So I decided to try it, and I actually really love it – especially in the shower as you can lather it nicely to cover not just your face but neck and décolletage.
Do you think everyone will embrace bar soap for the face again?
Or did it never really go away?
