Ugh! I can not fathom WHY people like these products. (Unless you are a hippie, or simply do not care about premature aging, or have SUCH dirty, nasty, oily skin that you need to be sandblasted.) This soap STRIPS away everything - good and bad - and that is NOT GOOD for those of us who want to fight off the effects of aging. Do NOT use this on your face and be very careful using it on your body. HARSH, HARSH, HARSH.
I LOVE this for use as a hand wash. Best smelling hand soap ever!! You only need a little bit, it is very concentrated.
This stuff is a lifesaver in the summertime! It leaves you feeling cool and refreshed. It's especially nice after being out in the sun. I don't use it a lot for shampoo unless I use a *tiny* bit and massage on scalp only, because it's drying.
As for cleaning, I've mopped with it, but I prefer to clean with things that kill germs and such. Plus, it's kind of weird to clean the house with the same thing you wash your butt with. LMAO!
I bought a 32 ounce bottle, and it would have lasted me forever if my son wouldn't have poured the remainders out. =( I will be buying again!
Great soap! It really cleans so you don't feel the soapy scum afterwards. Just tingly. It's also really good for the nasal passages, esp. if you're allergic. Some people mentioned that it's a bit much for more sensitive body parts but I didn't find it so. Dr. Bronner's castille formula also cleaned my face well w/o a dry feeling. This soap is a must-have for people living in humid climates like South Florida. Will definitely repurchase.
Love, Love, Love this stuff in the summertime! Use a few drops of the liquid in the shower with a shower puff and immediately feel cooled off. It's very concentrated, so be careful squeezing out of the bottle.
I get this stuff in bulk at the health food store - just refill my same bottle, time after time.
Generally a great soap. Dr. Bronners has a few different "flavors", but I like the Peppermint the best. This is a very zingy soap, and definitely leaves your skin tingly. MIL used it while visiting and commented that certain delicate parts may not have appreciated the intense peppermint so much, LOL. But overall I think it's a good soap, especially in the summer; it can be a little drying. I've never used it as anything other than a body soap, but the very interesting label touts it as useful for all kinds of purposes. Took off one lippie for the strong lye-like topnote. But, the crazy label definitely makes for great reading material in the tub.
Have been using steadily since 1968, can't imagine taking a shower without it... Makes you feel incredibly clean, with a great wake-you-up scent... The transition to hemp has been undetectable to me... Still the best soap I know...
This product is very tingling and exhilerating. It feels awesome. The only problem is it can be a bit harsh for sensitive areas. Otherwise I really dig it. Oh, it's also a bit difficult to find it stores, and it ain't cheap!
The only reason to buy this product is if you are extremely bored in the shower and need something to read. The label on this product contains some really crazy theories about life written by, I suppose, Dr. Bronner himself. Otherwise, although this soap is sold in health-food stores, it is horrible-smelling and will completely dry your skin out. I like the idea that it could be used to wash everything from hair to clothing, but the promises this soap makes don't hold up to the awful experience of using it. Stay away from this product unless you'd like to use laundry detergent on your skin.
Very pepperminty, great lather and a little goes a long way. Well worth the price, which BTW isn't too much!
