I bought this soap out of curiosity & it is not expensive as I was curious about the smell. It turned out the smell is rather faint, I like the feel of it, like a piece of frozen butter. The dark specks maybe the charcoal bamboo (I guesss). I washed my hands & the makeup brush with it. After I dried my hands I felt the skin is smooth & somewhat moist. To make sure I wash it twice & it was the same, I was totally amazed, this is winter in Canada, with drying indoor heat !! This never happened before, even with Dove which claimed to have 1/4 moisturizing cream (wonder what the other 3/4 is?)
I will re-purchase, but the other fragrance variety. It works great on the makeup brushes as well.
This amazing little all-natural bar is a steal at only $3.50! Whole Foods would easily sell this for over $8. The combination of bergamot, clary sage, and niaouli makes for a refreshing scent in the shower. I work up a lather using a shower puff and scrub away! This gives you a very 'squeaky clean' feeling (due to the glycerin, no doubt) but doesn't strip your skin dry. The olive oil, coconut oil, shea butter and vitamin E are very soothing to the skin. This is another gem in Everyday Minerals' whole line of amazing all-natural products!
