Clean without soap

A little while ago, a friend and I were discussing our troubles with keeping our skin clean -- I have allergies, she has political/moral objections to most cleansers. She then told me that, when her sister and a friend asked her what she used, and she admitted she used simple bar soap to wash her face, they were, she said, horrified.

"You should never use soap on your face!"

After several more minutes of shocked discussion about how soap will dry and age a face, one of the women remarked that it might be okay to use a bar of Dove on delicate skin.

My question: wouldn't the chocolate become awfully sticky?

(Not to worry. I really do know the difference.)
