    Is the difference just the name or are there differences in the formulation?

    To me, lotion bars are for everyday use like your regular liquid lotion, for dry spots or dry everywhere lol.... And massage bars have stuff in them for maybe aches n pains or things like that.

    That's just me. I've seen them labeled lotion/massage bars in some sites. Some sites, the massage bars have whole coffee beans for the bumps or they're molded in one of those bumpy molds.

    I think lotion bars should sink in pretty quickly since most people want to use them and get on with life. Massage bars should be the opposite, they should have oils like olive or coconut that take a while to sink in so the person doing the massage doesn't have to reapply all the time.

    That makes a lot of sense. I hadn't thought of it that way. Thanks, Dawni and Tourmaline!
