    It was here on The TSD forums that I first read about folks using Dove Beauty Bar soap as a lathering shave soap.

    Though I have never particularly liked Dove as a shower soap, it spurred a fascination with the idea of a "do-all" bar soap.

    Well, I think that I have found just that. This product works (for me) as a shampoo, bathing soap, and...
    a lathering shave soap.

    Nourish SMOOTH over - Cool Moisturizing Beauty Bar

    I have used this product for over a month, because I really questioned my perception of how well it performs.

    My next step is to try it as a toothpaste. I'll let you know how that goes.:D

    Many times I lathered Dove with a brush and got very good results. It also moisturizes well and leaves a comfortable post-shave feeling.

    I've gotten good results from a couple of soaps which apparently are only made for the hospitality industry- Mineral Fusion (which I discovered during a stay at a Wingate by Wyndham) and Neutrogena French Milled Soap (apparently featured at Marriott properties). The latter is almost *too* slick and cushioning.

    By the way, isn't something which describes itself as a "bar" technically not a soap? (Something to do with the difference between a soap and a detergent.)

    I recall hearing something about that, also.

    So what is the difference between a body soap and a shaving soap?

    Same question for a body bar and shaving soap?
