first off i just want to say that about 4-5 months ago i started going through another hormonal change...i'm 20 years old and i think this happens to everyone but for me this hormonal change caused my face to break out with acne and the acne would just continuously break out...and no matter what i tried to do...it just wouldn't go away...i've used aprocot scrubs, proactive, olay products, acne clensers....and NOTHING WORKED...until Trader Joe's Grocery Shopping day with my dad came along and i found this Oatmeal honey soap. through my prior reasearch of acne and DIY projects of making oatmeal and honey masques at home...i learned that Honey has natural antibacterial qualities, and oatmeal has soothing qualities. So i proceeded to buy the soap...take it home and use it to clense my face before bed. at this point i had given up trying to rid my skin of acne cuz i believed that nothing would work. but after washing my face i applied some vitamine e cream and went to sleep...when i woke up i noticed my face had a refreshed look to it...and so i continued this for the last 2 weeks...my face has completely cleared up! i would recommend this to anyone who has acne problems...i know its hard to get to a trader joe's store but you can order stuff online and this is worth it! its reasonably priced and theres 2 bars per package which is good! it should last you at least 2 months. i usually was my face with this bar once in the morning (in the shower before work) and then in the evening after taking my makeup off and before i go to bed! works like a charm! this soap has changed my life!
I love this soap. I am a lover of good soaps, and I think this one is pretty good. The best thing about it is that it's cheap! Other pros: it smells like oatmeal cookies, it doesn't get slimey/mushy, and it comes with 2 in a package.
I saw YT review for this and assumed it was a creamy oatmeal and honey scent. I should have checked reviews first because it has a spicy bite to it that I really cannot stand... not just cinnamon. Lathers well and is very inexpensive but the scent has me giving away the second bar and I wouldn't repurchase.
All natural. Soft fragrance with a hint of cinnamon. Lathers beautifully. Soothes my dry itchy skin leaving it feeling clean and soft. I can skip lotion if I'm running late. The price is really affordable for the quality level. This soap made me a natural soap convert. The only downside is that we don't have Trader Joe's in Canada so, I have to stock up when I go to the United States.
As others have already said, this soap is a great find, especially pricewise. Natural ingredients, long lasting, creamy lather, moisturizing, and the scent is soothing and light... like oatmeal cookies. What's not to love?
I think my husband thinks I have not been bathing properly, because this soap lasts forever! It never got mushy either. It rinses clean and is not drying. I was not expecting such a spicy smell, which I usually am not a fan of, but I LOVE the way this smells! Unfortunately this clogs me up on my chest and gives me lots of bumps; I think all bar soap does this to me though so I won't dock a lippie for it. This is super cheap too!
Im fragrance sensitive. Despite the subtle scent, this soap did not irritate me. Nothing really exciting about this soap, the packaging is also so so, maybe to keep the price low. But it's a good soap to use if you have fragrance sensitive skin.
Smells great, but it was super drying and left a film of soap scum on my skin. I think I'll try a different brand of natural soap.
Excellent as a hand soap (haven't used it in the bath/shower so I can't comment on how it serves as an all-over body soap). I keep a bar of this next to my kitchen and guest bathroom sinks for hand washing purposes; it's really great! And pretty inexpensive, especially when your'e using it exclusively as a hand soap. It doesn't get soft and mushy over time (no messy soap dishes, hallelujah). Ingredient list is short, which I like––simpler is better I think. Like this soap a lot and would definitely recommend trying it!

1) contains PENTASODIUM PENTETATE but "Determined safe for use in cosmetics, subject to concentration or use limitations - Determined safe for use when formulated to avoid irritation, in assessment by industry safety panel (Cosmetic Ingredient Review, CIR)"- Skin Deep: Cosmetic Safety Reviews
2) plastic packaging. How about changing it to recycle paper?
