This is my current HG soap. It lathers well. It is NOT drying at all, but gets you clean. It smells good. LIke lavender, but a little lighter, not so much like vanilla. I do wish the bar lasted longer in the shower, or was a little cheaper since it doesn't last that long. I am on a trying new soaps kick, so check out my other reviews if you are looking for a new soap, since I have tried a few lesser known/lesser reviewed brands, and will continue to review as I try more.
