I was hoping this would be an affordable replacement to L'Occitane's lemon verbena soap. The price is right, and the scent is very nice, but I found this soap far too drying. I have skin that can be dry and sensitive, especially in the winter, but I used this during the summer and fall and still found it to be too drying. It wasn't drying to a point that my skin was irritated, just noticeable. It has lots of suds, a feature I don't particularly care and that should have tipped me off to how drying it would be. This soap isn't horrible, I don't have to throw it away or anything, I just don't think it works for me and won't bother to buy it again.
