Post Soap/cleanser for dry skin?

I was just wondering what's better for dry skin - a bar of soap or a cleanser from a bottle? Or, does it not matter? I've been using Cetaphil, but, unfortunately, that doesn't seem to be moisturizing enough. Does anyone have any suggestions for a really moisturizing soap/cleanser that I could try? Thanks.

Try a cleansing bar made with Goats Milk. You should be able to find a supplier on-line easy enough. After cleansing, try using a mixture of 4 parts Jojoba Oil mixed with 1 part Vitamin E oil instead of lotion. This mixture of oils will penetrate the skin, moisturize and heal the dry skin.

I think the Cetaphil should be enough if you use it with a good, separate moisturizer like I do. I recommend DML moisturizer. You might be able to get some free samples of it from your dermatologist.
