i LOOOOOOVE THE SMELL! This is way too drying to use everyday for me (cleanser/body wash) so I use it in a pump for hand soap. I love that it's fair trade/organic/biodegradable as I am always seeking enviro-friendly products. If I was going camping I would take this for all my cleaning needs (body/dishes...whatever!). But at home, for my body, I will stick to high quality natural soap from Saltspring Island called Kama Soap (Flowers'n'Spice is HG for me and BF). I would repurchase for hand soap as I love the smell and this stuff is cheap. Dilute, dilute, dilute! As a bonus, who doesn't love the fanatical rantings on the bottle?? Great reading material!
ALL ONE! :)
Ok so I heard they went fair trade, and that it's always been organic and I finally caved. It was expensive at 7.99 but I heard that it goes a long way.
Well... yes the aroma is delicious because it's almond all the way, and yes, it's natural. The aroma reminds me of Italian amaretti cookies.
However, about 20-30 minutes after using it in the shower as a shower gel, my arms and back get itchy. It may have to do with the sudsing that's beeing a little too efficient in cleansing my skin.
I have even tried applying one of lush's moisturizing bars just after using this, and before leaving the shower but I just have finally come to the determination that I need something a lot more moisturizing for Chicagoland's harsh winters.
I had wanted to try this forever and finally bought it at the local health store. I have the bottle in my shower and use it on a puff for body, face and shaving. It is wonderful! I have somewhat dry skin (on my face too) and this cleans without drying me out. I was scared to try it on my face, but once I did, I'll never buy a separate face wash again! I want to try it as bubble bath for my daughter, she has eczema and I usually give her an oatmeal bath, but then it gets all clumpy in her hair which is gross. I also would think that since this is natural, I won't have to worry about any urinary issues! I plan to buy more to use for my delicate laundry and cleaning the rest of the house! I wish it came by the gallon. Maybe it does, I haven't looked yet! I plan on using this the rest of my life!
I've been having a deeply satisfying love affair with this soap for 6 months. I can't believe it took me 29 years to discover it. All the different scented liquids are great, but I'm partial to the almond. I love the scent, but I also like how it dissipates quickly and doesn't interfere with perfume later on.
I use it on a pouf as a body wash. My skin is super sensitive, especially on my thighs (weird, I know), but Dr. B's causes no irritation whatsoever. I also like to use it once a week as a clarifying shampoo-- it does a great job at removing product buildup, but it IS drying for my hair, so I follow it up with a good leave-in conditioner. It also cleans my makeup brushes well.
Any size bottle is a great value--all you need is a drop or two, and you have tons and tons of suds. Not to mention the fact that you can use it to mop your floors, wash your dishes, and clean most everything else in your house! No harsh chemicals on your body, on your stuff, or down your drain.
My highest recommendation...go buy a bottle today!
I use the mint to wake me up....but I use this scent if I shower at night. It is so relaxing and smells awesome if I uses cocoa butter to moisturize with after showering. It makes me smell like a candy bar.
I love the smell of this product. I used this as bodysoap, but somehow this made my arms so itchy...so I wont buy this again. I am using regular soap and my ichy is gone.
I started using this as a body wash several years ago, I soon began shaving my legs with it, Then, about a year ago, I started using it as my face wash. Recently, I've started expirmenting with it to cleanse my dry curly hair. I've got to say...it has been the best product for all three jobs. My skin has never been less dry and tight, I use a lot less body lotion and facial moisturizer, and I break out less as well, I don't get bad razor burn the way I used to and my hair is doing great with this as my primary shampoo. I really could not be happier with a product. It's multipurpose, it smells delish, and it's completely natural, good for your body and good for the enviroment. I love Bronners and I sincerely reccomend it to everyone.
I've been using this soap for years and would recommend it to anybody! My boyfriend says it makes me smell like a cupcake. I also use it to hand-wash clothes, and diluted with water in a spray bottle for cleaning around the house. Also, the bottle is a trip. . .
HG!!! I love this stuff. (If my score looks low it's b/c I'm not in love with the weird hippie-ish packaging. But whatever, it's worth it for the product) Awesome body wash, amazing smell; moisturizing (even in this extremely harsh freezing winter); makes a milky, scented bath; gentle enough to cleanse my face with; natural and free of parabens and other junk that cause cancer and such. After cleansing with this I moisturize with pure coconut oil and I smell good enough to eat--literally!! My dogs today couldn't stop licking my feet and ankles after my bath! :) p.s. I bought the pepperment scent for my hubby to use in the shower; he loves "tingly" things and this fits the bill for sure. We'll see what he thinks!
I love this liquid soap! I am very glad I happened upon this at Long's Drugstore in the organic section. I was looking for an organic liquid soap to refill my b&bw foaming handsoap dispensers in the kitchen and restroom. I put 10-15 quick squirts in the empty containers and fill it up with warm water. This is a nice mild soap and cleans well. I prefer the almond scent the most compared to the lavender, tea tree or peppermint. The almond is very mild smelling and slightly sweet not strong like the others. If you are ever in a pinch this makes an excellent toothpaste! I use two pumps of the foam from my dispenser on my toothbrush and it's nice. Very cheap too! I definitely wouldn't recommend this as a shampoo as it seems it would be drying. I have yet to try it to wash my delicate clothes but I bet it would work nice. Enjoy :o)
