Do you mean to tell me that you have to purchase a special soap to wash your beard with? You take a shower and you just watch the beard with the same soap you wash the rest of the body with right? This could get expensive buying a separate soap for your beard. Does a beard really require that much care? If it requires buying a whole new soap you might as well shave it off. Why would you have to buy a separate soap to wash your beard anyway? I mean the beard will not get any dirtier than the hair. Whoever heard of giving your beard a shower anyway? But wait a minute there has to be some reason why there are so many beard soaps on the market today. The question is which beard soap do you buy? Do you a beard soap that is scented or unscented because remember your nose will be smelling the scent all day long.
