Is soft water worth it?

The truth about soft water?
We recently moved into a house with a water softening system (the water in our area is normally pretty hard), and I really dislike the way it fails to rinse off soap when I'm showering or washing my hands. The information online often seems mixed and contradictory. Are the benefits of soft water big enough to outweigh the discomfort? Or is it feasible to do "partially softened" water? Any relevant personal experiences? Thanks.
