To start, I am a huge fan of bar soaps. I love how little packaging they have in comparison to liquid soaps, and I also love that what packaging they do have is usually a box which is biodegradable. I’m all about reducing my waste so I don’t have to worry about reusing or recycling much, and bar soaps help with that goal.
So I’m going in expecting to be pleased, and I was overwhelmed! This is hands-down the most moisturizing bar soap I have ever tried, and I’ve used absolutely wonderful, hand-made, cold-processed goat’s milk soaps. Don’t expect this soap to rinse squeaky clean – it leaves a slight film of something softening on your skin that soaks right in as soon as it’s dried. You don’t feel anything but smooth, supple skin after you wash with this. I can definitely skip moisturizer on my face when I use it to wash away the day, and I don’t find my hands drying out nearly as much as they do with normal bar soaps – or even other good ones.
It’s also a hefty, solid bar that’s incredibly long-lasting. Most of the really moisturizing bar soaps I’ve tried have melted away quite easily, especially if left in damp places (like the shower). This one just keeps going and going…I’ve used it multiple times a day for nearly two weeks straight now, and you’d hardly be able to tell by looking at it – the logo has barely worn smooth.
About the only thing that approaches a negative for me is the scent. It’s very reminiscent of “old lady perfume” smells to me – that really heavy, heady floral-type fragrance. It’s incredibly strong in this soap, so much so that it constantly fills the room with the scent, even when you aren’t using it. Fortunately, though, it doesn’t linger much on the skin, so I don’t wind up smelling it all day long. Thanks to that, I really don’t have much of a complaint about the smell.
Honestly, it’s hard to say anything bad about this product – I absolutely love it, the price is reasonable, and I’m definitely prepared to order more!
