The reputation of soaps being overly drying usually overlooks one of its best traits—they're incredibly effective at deep cleansing. A gentle soap can remove oil, dirt, and other irritants that your average gentle cleanser can't. Say you found yourself stuck outside for too long trying to hail a cab, your skin will need the extra lather to feel squeaky clean again. That said, here are 10 face-friendly soaps to pick up for those desperate times:
