What are your favorite not-so-expensive facial soaps, shampoos, conditioners and/or body washes? (If you can order them from Amazon that is a big, big plus!)

I have been using the same old boring Head & Shoulders since I was a child. I also use Clean & Clear facial soap and some random bar soap.
I did try out some random soaps from places like the Body Shop but it was fairly expensive and even though they all smelled really good, I didn't feel very clean/the smell didn't last very long....so I went back to the products I was brought up on.
Now some of my friends order products from Lush and though I'm sure they're fantastic, I have limited funds. SO I was wondering what askmefi recommends for a girl who likes not-overpowering fruity and/or clean, fresh scents.
Some background: I do have dry skin/scalp so moisturizing versions are also preferred. I also have slightly wavy but generally well-behaving hair, IOW no frizz but sometimes it gets kind of flat. Oh, and being able to order it from Amazon (I have that 2-day free shipping student thing) would be amazing too.
I consider paying over $20 for something that isn't jumbo size expensive. But if you say it's really worth it I'll look into it. :)
P.S. Recommendations for lotions are great too :)
