The smell of this shampoo bar is very similar to other shampoo bars that I have bought from CV, the strongest smelling one I have encountered thus far is the Neem & Tea Tree one. The Aurveduc Herb shampoo bar lathers up very well and it also provides a tingling action to my scalp, probably due to all if the different herbs in it. Now, I so have naturally curly, fine texture, very dry hair. Also, I do suffer with seborrheic dermatitis on my face and severe scalp eczema. The bar doesn't irritate my skin, it providrs a level of temporary relief to my scalp, but for long-lasting relief I would definitely have to use it over a very long period of time. I do find this shampoo bar to be more drying to my hair then the Neem & Tea Tree bar, after finding it out of my hair. However, the dryness is quickly remedied through use of the moisturizing styling cream that I use to style my hair with. Overall, my hair is left shiny, frizz free, and my hair's natural dark color looks richer in tone as well. I have not noticed an increase in body with any of the CV shampoo bars that I have tried thus far, however, if it ends up happening then that would be really cool, if not, then I will be totally okay with such. I must say that I don't use an ACZ rinse on my hair after using shampoo bars, and with the CV bars, I don't use any conditioner afterwards either. I don't feel the need yo use any of these things in my hair at all. So, I just go by, what I find works best for me. Oh, and yes, I do live where the water is considered to be moderate-hard, however, I have not experienced any major issues with using shampoo bars in my hair at all. I happen to really like this shsmpoo bar, and I definitely will continue to buy it from CV for sure!

I bought this bar to help with my severe scalp eczema. It was advised for me to try by a wonderful member of the CV staff. Now, this bar has a very noticeable smell to it, stronger than any other CV bar that I have bought thus far. It smells of bengay+menthol. It is bearable to me, so I definitely will keep using it. It foams up very well, it provides a very cooling, and tingling sensation to my scalp, while really soothing it at the same time, which I really like. After thoroughly rinsing it out, the tingling sensation eventually fades, I see some redness to my scalp (nothing severe), and I don't notice any flaking, however, my hair is left somewhat dry, but that is remedied by the moisturizing styling cream that I currently use. Now, my hair is left feeling shiny and darker in tone, and my scalp is left feeling good for about 36 hours or so, however, afterwards, unfortunately, the itchiness comes back in full force. And, I find myself scratching my scalp all over again, and my scalp becomes sore. I realize that I am going to have to use this bar on a frequent basis in order to get the best results from it. Because only using it once a week is not going to suffice at this time. Nonetheless, I definitely do plan to continue purchasing this shampoo bar for sure. I do have other shampoo bars that I have ordered coming my way that I do plan on trying, so I definitely look forward to seeing how they work for me as well.

I own it in the Vanilla Bean scent, and OMG, this stuff is absolutely divine. I have sensitive, dry-to-very dry, acne prone skin. I also suffer with seborrheic dermatitis on my face as well. I use this product not only my face, but also on the ends of my hair too, in order to keep them well moisturized, and to keep split ends at bay. With this stuff a little bit goes a long way, so you don't have to use a lot in order to get great results with this product at all. Plus, thank God it does not break my skin out. Which is something, I have struggled with when it comes to most moisturizers that I have used on my face. I believe the biggest difference is due to this product being organic, and the other ones being heavily laden with chemicals, that don't respond best with my body's chemistry period. This product is one that I will never stop purchasing. As, it is truly one of the best products that CV has to offer!

I have tried CV's Butter Bar Conditioning Shampoo Bar, Neem & Tea Tree Bar, and Whipped Shea Butter in Vanilla Bean, and Ayurvedic Herb Shampoo bar thus far. In regards to my hair, I naturally curly, fine textured, low density hair that is naturally very dry. I also suffer with severe scalp eczema. When it comes to my skin, I have very dry, sensitive, acne prone skin. I also suffer with seborrheic dermatitis on my face. I do see a dermatologist for my skin issues, however, and have been prescribed a plethora of stuff for my skin issues that have failed to provide long-lasting relief, plus, they happen to come with side effects that I just don't feel to keen constantly subjecting my body to either. All these harsh chemicals just can't be good for the body long-term anyways. So, I decided that I would start using all natural and organic products on my hair and that I would eventually progress to using all natural and organic products all over my entire body. In regards to the Butter Bar Conditioner Bar, it has a scent of rosemary to it. I don't smell anything else to it but the organic Rosemary that is in it. Even though it is classified as being unseated, it has a very noticeable scent. It lathers well. It provides a silky, creamy type lather, not a stripping one. It is very moisturizing and did leave my hair the most moisturizer out of any shampoo bar that I have ever tried. My hair was easy to detangle and was left very manageable, and very shiny as well. Plus, my hair color looked darker in tone as well. I did notice scalp redness (nothing severe), and my scalp only had very mild flaking after using it, and it did help with soothing my scalp for around 24 hrs or do, before, my scalp started to itch again. This shampoo bar isn't exactly recommended for treating scalp disorders, so I can't complain all that much about it not doing that much towards helping my scalp eczema a whole lot, when I use it. I do plan to use it, but not on a weekly basis, as it will be a bar that I rotate into my hair are regimen every so often. With this bar, I definitely can't get away with only using it once a week to wash my hair with (which is what I prefer to do when it comes to washing my hair). So, I ended up purchasing the Neem & Tea Tree bar to use to shampoo my hair with, after it was recommend to me by a member of CV's staff. This bar can be used on all hair types, but is especially recommended the most for people with dry skin, eczema, and/or psoriasis. It has a noticeably strong bengay+menthol scent, that thank God doesn't really linger in the hair for long after you rinse it out. The scent I find to be bearable, it didn't make me gag, or get a bad headache, or make my have a sneezing fit. However, if you are going to order this bar or any of Chagrin Valley's bars, please know that they have very noticeable scents to them, and you will smell such immediately upon opening your package. In regards to the Neem & Tea Tree bar, I shampooed my hair with it well, it lathered up very well, it offered a cooling, yet tingling sensation to my scalp, which I really liked, and it just made my scalp feel oh so good. After I rinsed my hair, my hair was left somewhat dry, however, I use a moisturizing styling cream to style my hair with, so that replenished the moisture back into my hair. I did see some scalp redness (nothing severe), and I didn't notice any flaking afterwards, which was good. My scalp was feeling wonderful in the Sunday, that I first tried it, but, by Tuesday, the itchiness had come back in full effect, and yes, I have been scratching my scalp, so my scalp is feeling tender in areas. This is not a shampoo bar that I can get away with only using once a week either. However, I do plan to keep this bar on heavy rotation in my hair care regimen, because in order to get the full effects from it, it appears to be something that you have to stay committed towards using regularly in order to get the best results. I do not use an ACV rinse after using any shampoo bar. That stuff is a huge no-no for my scalp. I don't use any baking soda to clarify with, as my scalp is to sensitive for all that extra stuff. And, I don't use conditioner after I use shampoo bars anymore, as they rinse completely out of my hair, and anyone that I have tried that have been more drying to my hair than others, my moisturizing styling cream, puts my hair's moisture balance back on track.When it comes to the CV Whipped Shea Butter in Vanilla Bean. All I can say is that I absolutely love this stuff. I have tried other Shea butter products and have been totally disappointed with most of them, but not this one. First of all it is certified organic, it has a super delightful vanilla bean smell to it, that I absolutely adore to the high heavens. The snell of vanilla bean is so calming and relaxing to me. Also, with this product a little bit truly goes a long way. I use it on my face, and I also use it on the ends of my hair to keep them well moisturized, and to help keep those split ends at bay. It is a great multi-purpose product, that is so much better for my skin than those chemical laden products in the drugstores and in the department stores that truly just feel like they don't fully absorb into my skin, but instead leave a coating, that in many cases, ends up causing my skin to definitely break out. With this whipped Shea, it has not caused breakouts for me, which I am super thankful for. With the Ayurvedic Herb Shampoo bar, it smells the same as the other shampoo bars I own except fir the Neem & Tea Tree. That one has the strongest I have come across. The Ayurvedic Herb bar lathers well, and it definitely gives off a sensation to my scalp. It rinses clean. It leaves my hair feeling drier than the Neem & Tea Tree bar, however, after I apply my moisturizing styling cream, my hair is left feeling soft, and looking shiny, and totally frizz free. Plus, my hair color looks richer in tone as well. I lo

This deodorant is my favorite! I have the Citrus Blossom scent and it is so fresh smelling! I prefer a natural deodorant and this is the best I've used. I tried Tom's of Maine, which by mid morning left me smelling like a billy goat farm. Kiss My Face Liquid Rock was okay, but smelled weird, not body odor like, but just weird. The price is a bit more than I'd like to pay, but will continue to buy it because I'm very satisfied with it. The application can be messy, but I bought one of their small bamboo spoons to scoop it out and apply it...works pretty good, just more effort than a stick. It is a deodorant, not anti-perspirant, so I can get "damp" at times, but still smell fresh! I don't seem to perspire as much with this one. When I used a mainstream deodorant/anti-perspirant I seem to perspire a lot more. I truly believe that's because we are meant to perspire to rid toxins and using commercial deodorants causes my body to revolt and perspire more. Overall, I'm really happy with this!
