    So much love! Love this product more than any other soap I have tried, the only natural soap that doesn’t dry up my eczema, or my scalp. Can’t beat the smell either! I recommend this to everyone I know, a must buy!!

    I use this every day as an all over wash, including my hair. It doesn’t leave my scalp tight like some shampoos, my hair is clean, soft and lightly scented, as is the rest of me. I love it.

    I use this daily on my body and after only a few uses my skin is already looking brighter, not bleached lighter, but has a nice glow to it, hence I’m hoping in the next couple of months it starts to fade away my old scar marks. As a shampoo, on 4b / 4c hair the moisture level is amazing lol ? Hence, I will use this after a protein type treatment , as otherwise my hair will become to mushy soft! Also I found this one to spicy fragrant for my face, hence I only use the unscented variant on my face area.

    The best hand soap I’ve ever used. I used to be inconsistent with washing my hands after I had used the restroom (don’t judge me) because my hands would get really dry and feel coated. After I bought this I no longer dreaded washing my hands they feel soft and clean, no coating 🙂

    I use this for my hands and my body when I take showers and baths. It works great for both. It’s a first for me not to have dry skin after using soap (detergent in actuality). I also use this as a face wash prior to applying a face moisturiser and I love how gentle it is. My face would act out crazy and blow out with zits if I used store-bought “soap”. It’s not really necessary though to use soap on your face everyday so I just use it once in a while because water is gentler than even the most gentle soap. That’s a thing to keep in mind. My skin looks best when I pay attention to if it really needs a deep cleansing or not.

    I’ve tried it for my hair but unfortunately it doesn’t work for me. I have long, straight (1C with few 2A waves close to the temples) and quite thick hair. My hair is dark blonde and the soap doesn’t stain it at all, I don’t think even the lightest blonde person should be worried about that 🙂 My scalp is neither oily nor dry. If your hair is like mine you probably shouldn’t buy this with the intention of using it as a shampoo. The lengths felt fine really smooth and clean, but my scalp absolutely hated the heavy moisture in this. My hair is not in need of moisture and you should know that natural, harmfree products are way more moisturizing than the store-bought “hair repair extra moisture” shampoos. They’re two totally different leagues. I didn’t even know my hair hates added moisture until I tried out natural options like this soap for example. It can’t hurt to try but don’t expect it to work unless your particular hair type is one that needs lots of moisture to stay healthy. I will be continuing to buy this soap because it smells lovely and it works beautifully for my skin 🙂

    Usually I find soap too drying and shower gel is full of added nasties. This soap is the answer. It cleanses beautifully without leaving my skin feeling dry and tight. I will never go back to regular soap or shower gel again.

    This soap is really nice to use as it moisturises really well, but for me the smell is not quite strong enough as I like the strong smell of frankincense and patchouli and I couldn’t really smell either.
