I like shower gels. I started using them recently and I think they're much better than soap. Soap is very drying and it makes a mess in the shower. There is no mess with shower gels. Plus, it foams very easily and quickly and I like the consistency too.
I also like that there are different scents available. I think most body soaps have scents that are more suitable for men. There are more scent options with shower gels.
