What's the difference between Neutrogena and glycerin soap base?

I've been using plain Neutrogena soap for years, store-brand when I can find it, but I generally can't find it. It's the only thing that doesn't make me break out, but it doesn't last long, and is pricey.
A recent AskMe
got me thinking about less-expensive alternatives to my favorite Neutrogena. A little googling led me to glycerin soap base, cheaply available at craft stores. Is it basically the same thing, minus perfume and color? Can I just buy a big block and slice off what I need? Sure, one day I might try adding sandlewood and clay or cherry blossoms or something and mold it in fancy shapes, but right now I'm just looking for good, cheap soap that won't make me break out like a 15-year-old.
