Hand & Body Soap Bars
I have been using the unscented soap to shower for the last several weeks. After decades of having a skin condition and needing medication, I seem to be free of any symptoms! I am thrilled.
As for using up the bar quickly: if you use it a lot, it will get used up quickly! The plastic in soaps seems to prolong their use. I have been using up lots hotel and for gift soap during the pandemic. Some of them do not dissolve for a very very long time. I finally threw two of them in the garbage because it became apparent that there must be something hard (probably plastic) in it.
It seems to me that the dry-ish feeling on my skin is just a different feeling than when I used soap loaded with plastic and other chemicals. I am not willing to have that smooth feeling if that is what it is. And, yes, I am getting used to this different feeling and it's fine.
I am sold and so happy to be contributing my teeny little part toward a plastic free planet.
I love that it’s plastic free and that the ingredients are pure and good for my body. I really wanted to love this body bar but it left my skin with a “squeaky clean” almost sticky feeling. That might be great for my dishes but not for my skin. The feeling wears off eventually once I’m fully dry for a while but it does not feel great up until that point. I’ve only used it a few times so maybe my skin just needs to get used to it???
This is my husbands hands down favourite soap. I was a body wash user, but since I am eschewing plastic, looks like I will be switching too. He loves every scent, my fav is the Blazing Spice, which I have used as a hand soap for years. I think the bars last a reasonable amount of time, but we store ours on a shelf 5 ft up at the end of the shower, so they are only wet when we’re actually using them.

Which Scent is Perfect for You?

Minty Fresh soap is most popular in the morning and some say it feels tingly on their skin.

Peppermint essential oil can sometimes be an irritant to very sensitive skin.
