So I'm out of soap and have been thinking about switching to one of these bodywash products for men.  So which ones are good?  Do the ones that claim to also work as shampoo stand up?

And most importantly, what does PeteRock think about this subject?

The Old Spice ones are great.  I can't comment on the ones that double as shampoo, though.

I love the Irish Spring stuff, though I don't use it in my hair. The only problem is buying a "poof" to use, primarily because it's difficult for me to buy something named "poof."

Yeah, that's an aspect I hadn't considered.  Past liquid soaps I've used required something to "suds" them up, which is odd since bar soap has no problem with that.

Thumbs up for both the Irish Spring & Old Spice versions from me. Solid modern inventions.

Have one of the combined hair/body ones around, but not into using it. Need that dedicated shampoo feeling, but if out of proper shampoo good 'nuff in a pinch.

I have a bottle of the yellowish Axe body wash and it's not bad, though it does tend to have more of a scent than I like (I'm not big on smelly stuff).  Never used one that doubles as shampoo.

I agree that buying the poof was a bit difficult for some reason.

OMG you did it.  Get ready for a full history on body wash, how they are made and what makes them the essence of a great shower/bath.  This one should be bigger than the last Harry Potter novel.

Wtf, why do you need a poof? I use an axe one, clip I think it was the least smelliest, one of the blue ones. JUst put some on a wash cloth and rub a bit and holy shit it bubbles. Why do you need a dedicated poof like device to get suds?

I buy anything with the word "Sandalwood" in it.  I'm utterly addicted to that scent.  If this makes me less of a man, so be it.  Although I suspect that if I were any less of a man in the eyes of you losers, I'd be bearing children at this point. 

I tried Axe, but it tasted funny.

I can't believe you just asked that.  You might as well ask why indoor plumbing is superior to an outhouse.

Soap is for cavemen and leaves scummy stuff in the soapdish.  Bodywash is for the modern man and comes in clean, convenient plastic bottles that can be recycled into more plastic bottles for other clean and convenient products.

Soap? Pfft.  Stop using the boring soap, stop having a boring life.

Don't worry, I went and bought something to try last night.  icon_lol  And I followed Jersoc's advice and bought the cheapest thing, which turned out to be a bodywash/shampoo combo under the Zest name.  It works reasonably well as a shampoo but it didn't suds up very much as a soap and left a bit of filmy after feel.

I might have to buy a poof.   ninja

Exactly.  Those who insist that soap leaves a film while bodywash does not are kidding themselves.  Bodywash is an even worse culprit in not rinsing cleanly, and when it comes to deep cleaning, it just can't compare with the right soap. 

I use Lever 2000 Men.  It hydrates and does not dry out your skin, it cleans well, rinses cleanly, and leaves a subtle but still masculine scent.  My skin has never looked or felt better.  I'll leave the bodywash for my wife.

Lever 2000 soap is what I've been using for several years.  I was just hoping there was a bodywash/shampoo product that would simplify the need to buy two products.  I keep what remaining hair I have pretty short so it's not like I require some sort of super shampoo.  I've gotten by on occasion just washing my hair with soap.

How exactly are the suds created from body wash not as good at deep cleaning as the suds created from regular soap?

Not to mention a bar of soap is out in the open collecting germs and floaty things, hair, etc. Body wash has no such problem.

I was sure I was the only one. Been using it for a couple of decades. I use lavender, however, because that's what my wife prefers. We tried the peppermint, but it was actually too cooling for us.

Bronner's is involved in a big lawsuit at the moment, against some companies that are dubiously claiming their products are 'green'.

I feel less clean after using my wife's bodywash when compared to my preferred soap.  Personal preference and all that.

Perhaps if you keep your bathroom and shower area cleaner it isn't much of a problem.

Mhmm, right. You take a bar of soap. You put it on a washcloth or on your body. It picks up things. You're going on vacation soon no? So those little particles it has picked up, the little bacteria that is present on every human, are just sitting there on your bar of soap, fermenting until you get back. How fabulous is that?
