A good lathering

The smell is invigorating and the texture gritty, so you feel like you’re really scrubbing away the dirt. The brown colour won’t win any favours with your girlfriend, but the all-natural ingredients should.

‘Skin Diver’ sounds like a sexual practice, but don’t let that put you off. This is a big black block of soap you could use to beat off intruders. It’s scent-free, too. A soap for real men.

Sharps Happy Me All Over Soap

This bar looks as if it was hewn from rock – lime green, faintly aromatic rock. It's classy enough

Smells faintly medicinal and creates an oily lather. We like the packaging, though. In fact, it's so cool we’d buy it, leave it lying around the bathroom and never open it.

Soap doesn’t come much posher than this. Apart from the stylish box, the white bar is so pristine it seems a shame to mess it up. The lather is rich and creamy.
