I almost never use bar soap to wash in the shower. I like a forming cleanser. But living in Arizona where it is so dry; I decided to change my routine and try bar soap from RAIN. I've been using it for a few weeks and what I notice is that my dry skin is almost gone . Now its pretty smooth and doesn't flake. As an older person, dry skin is a given. Try the RAIN soap and see what you think! I'mpretty happy with it and the ingredients that make it absolutely pure.
