Soap That Floats
PROS: 99.44% pure
Ivory Bar Soap really does float in the water. I like the price and availability in most stores. The down side is the soap residue and drying of your skin. The up side is the 99.44% pure and good for oily skin.

Childhood Memory
I remember my mom always buying this soap! I buy it to this day! I remember in high school we learned that it is the only soap that floats. I only use it on my face since he can be a drying soap.

Just 'Okay'
It'll get you clean and smell okay while doing it, but everyone in my household finds that it can be quite drying to the skin. You can't beat the price though.

Clean but Dry skin!
PROS: Smells good, cleans well
CONS: Makes your skin feel VERY dry
QUICK TIPS: Do not use on body
I bought this soap once because it was very cheap. It made me feel very clean but it left my skin VERY dry! It felt like i literally stripped all of the moisture out of my skin.

Pro's and Con's
PROS: Smells Awesome, Clean Feeling.
CONS: Skin irritation, Dry skin in winter months.
QUICK TIPS: Keep hands moist in winter.
So this soap I have been using for years. Always seems to do what it is supposed to but can be on the drier side when it comes to cold weather. Winter months I can't use this because I have sensitive skin and it always seems to cause my skin to crack and burn after I finish washing my hands. Although it does smell great and does make you feel clean once you finish in the warmer weather.

Favorite bar soap
As a female Ivory bar soap works in many magnificent ways for me. It helps with acne, oily skin, and also it's the best soap the use it you have a bacterial or yeast infection. As a friend to all you females, it is always smart to have a bar of ivory soap around. It's cheap and easy to find!

Honestly, no. I haven't. Try the winter care brand if you can get it because that one is more moisturizing than the normal.

IZZI S. Answer :
On occasion.I find that being more light handed and/or adding a couple drops of oil onto my rag or mesh sponge helps.Additionally,after you step out the shower,it's best to moisturize while the skin it still damp.

DOMINIQUE C. Answer :
I agree with Jennifer. I like them both for different reasons. The body wash is a great all around product, easy to take on trips, convenient. But, the soap is great for clearing up skin, drying an oily face, and there's all sorts of DIY home stuff that you can do with Ivory bar soaps!

JESSICA A. Answer :
I'm guessing those suggesting that melting the bar would result in liquid detergent have never tried this- and may be in for quite a surprise! Ivory soap is formulated with tons of little bubbles whipped into the mix- that's the secret behind the famous "floating soap". That also means that if you melt it, it expands. You'll end up with something that resembles a cloud. This will then break down in to powder. If you want to make laundry detergent, you can either keep it in powder form and add 1 cup of Borax and 1 cup of Washing Soda (both found in the laundry aisle). If you prefer liquid, dissolve the Ivory in about 4 cups of boiling water, add in the other ingredients, and mix it all in a large container (I use a 5 gallon paint bucket) Add another couple of gallons of hot water, mixing until everything is dissolved. Then wait for it to "set" overnight. It will turn into a lumpy gel consistency, and is fine to use that way, though I like to blend mine smooth with an immersion blender. Totally unnecessary, but it's more appealing that way!
