This was the only Dr bronners I didn't like in the shower. My husband didn't mind it but he preferred the others. It still gets 5 stars because it is the best thing during germ season. I used it as the main cleaner during that time, mostly for eucalyptus' properties for disinfecting the air. Wonderful for mopping floors with when there's sick people in the house!
i dont remember the last time i didnt shower with dr. bronners liquid soap. i started out with peppermint and i liked the tingle but found it too drying i switched to lavender. it was nice but the scent of eucalyptus is well suited for me. i love it. i will always buy this soap but i might switch up scents. ive been stuck with eucalyptus for at least 4 years though.
I really love Dr Bronner's products and especially this scent: it's relaxing and invigorating and makes me feel clean but not stripped dry although I had to learn how to dilute this properly for my skin. If I'm not careful, this stuff will dry my skin.
Another plus is that if I take a tablespoon or less of this and pour it in the tub at the very end of my shower, it cleans the tub of my body oil and conditioner, which is obviously a great thing too.
Great, basic soap. Good for body & face. It is not at all drying, but balancing for my combo-sensitive skin. Some use it for hair, in my experience it was totally ineffective as shampoo.
This scent is great, I prefer it to the peppermint (which can sting!) and the citrus orange (which is really light).
FYI, it is great for cleaning your bathtub/shower too! continued >>
Each product is made a little differently. This one tends to burn my sensitive skin. I've noticed this product line does a great job at cleaning and also exfoliating too ! I'll try the other scents instead of this one.
Wow the eucalyptus smell is really strong! Added to the bath water when I need a soak it foams beautifully and really clears the breathing after a long smoggy day in a city. Most importantly it does not dry the skin which is surprising for something that foams that much!
I use this soap as a body wash and I'm very happy with it. It cleans you well and isn't drying at all. What more could you want from a soap?
I bought the eucalyptus one because the smell reminds me of a spa I go to once a year where there's a eucalyptus steam room, so it makes me happy.
One problem: I dropped the bottle in the shower and the cap completely broke and won't close properly now. Considering it's easy to drop things in the shower (at least I do it all the time), I think they should make a more resilient cap.
I suffer from Keritosis Pilaris (ingrown hairs) all over my body, and this product works wonders. Eucalyptus is an anti-inflammitory and I use this when my skin is kicked up and I have a lot of breakouts. I use a scrubby sponge or a pumice sponge, and follup up the Bath and Body Works Eucalytpus lotion, and it works wonders on my KP.
I've never used it on my face, because I try not to upset the already delicate balance of my acne.
I don't use it every day, as it's very potent.
I've been using the bar soap version of this soap for the last two months. I use it on my hair and my body. At first, I thought I had to use an ACV rinse after washing my hair with this soap, but over the past few weeks, I've realized that I don't! (I live in a region with soft water.) I do use a moisturizing conditioner after shampooing. I've noticed a couple of things:
1.) I had started to get some dandruff from my previous shampoo. I used to use baking soda to clear up dandruff and to keep it at bay, but I noticed that my hair was starting to be bleached by it (I have black hair and it looked as thought it had been henna-ed) After two uses of this soap the flakes had gone away!
2.) The overall condition of my scalp has improved. My old shampoos used to leave my scalp a little dry. If i parted my hair, i could see the white dry marks on my scalp. Using castile soap has rejuvenated my scalp so that it no longer looks white, and rather looks as moisturized as the rest of my skin.
3.) The eucalyptus smell of the bar soap is really mild. It doesn't linger (though I wish it would). I am going to try the liquid peppermint version next, because I would like more of a tingle and a stronger scent.
Great, natural, vegan (!!) product that can be used from head to toe!
This scent is great to help clear the sinuses! I love all of Dr. B's soaps :-)!
