There was one time when the thought of using a bar of soap to cleanse seemed like a step back in time 50 years. (Anyone else's dad hand them a bar of soap when heading into their freshman dorm at college? Just me?) But nowadays, bar soap has become less dad-like and more luxurious. With improved formulas for both body and face and stunning packaging for that perfect #flatlay, bar soap might just replace your fave body wash. See some of our picks for fancy soap below.
Soap doesn't get fancier than Erno Laszlo. The plant oil complex in this bar is ideal for replenishing moisture and balancing pH to keep skin glowing and healthy. Plus, it comes with a storage box so your soap stays protected and sanitary.

Another great option for skincare addicts comes in the form of this tiny exfoliating bar from Drunk Elephant. With thermal mud and bamboo powder infused right in, this bar lathers and exfoliates skin for a divine shower experience.
