No matter if you have the rough hands of a longshoreman or those delicate dandy, there's no reason to settle for cut-rate liquid soaps.

A Better Bar

We don't love bar soaps, which can get chalky and cracked as their oils dry out. but this one by Claus Porto is milled seven times to prevent splitting (even French soaps are usually only triple-milled). And its sweet, understated almond-oil fragrance is much more appealing than cloying scents like lavender.
