hygiene reasons....using liquid body wash. not sharing the same bar of soap.
hubby perspires a lot, so he uses lifebuoy but kids and I use either lux or shokubutsu.

I prefer liquid body wash. I think it smells nicer.

Bar soap usually less chemical compared to liquid soap.
Liquid soap you have to read the ingredient list carefully.

Having said that, I still prefer liquid soap. Bar soap gets slimy after a few wash which I don't like.

And if you're sharing bar soap, you don't know which body part it was last used on. :siam:

So does the entire family share the share body wash? Or different brands for different family member?

Yes, share but not everyone likes the same scent. I prefer unscented but my dd1 prefers fragrance whereas dd2 is fine with anything so long it's organic.
My dd1 was complaining non-stop about her new stinky (unscented) body wash yesterday. Can't please everyone so I end up buying different types

If you don't mind paying more, California baby Body wash and Phytopetities Hair and body for kids smell pretty good and are very natural. My boys like the phytopetites (peach smell) but the California baby is too floral for them. I like it though. :)

We currently use Curel for sensitive skin.
