This stuff is AMAZING!!
I have used Dr. Bronner's products for several years, but recently I have been able to enjoy them even more!
If you want a great lather for hand soap, body soap, shaving etc. what I have found out is that you should put about 3 parts water and 1 part of the liquid soap into a FOAMING HAND SOAP CONTAINER.
It will extend the life of your soap supply, and you'll love the texture. Even thought this stuff may cost 15 dollars up front, it seriously lasts at least 6 months if you use it properly.
Warning!!: DO NOT USE THIS STUFF WITHOUT DILUTING IT. It's meant to be mixed with water, so don't be surprised if you experience sensitive skin if you don't dilute! 3 parts water to one part soap at minimum.
Dr. Bronner's lavender liquid soap lathers up very nicely so a little goes a long way. I tried this on my hair with so-so results. Unlike some reviews my skin didn't have any issues such as dryness after using this soap. After showering with this soap I follow up with shea butter as a body moisturizer. Shea butter is ultra moisturizing and great for combating dryness especially during the colder months. This soap can be very drying if used in its pure and undiluted form.
I use this for everything, body and house! I even clean my car with it.
My skin is very sensitive to soaps, so I try to only use natural soaps on my skin to avoid rashes and such. This doesn't irritate my skin at all, and when I use it to wash my face, it actually removes all my makeup! I don't find it drying at all. It does make hair feel a little weird after washing, but it's still a nice squeaky-clean feeling, and conditioner removes tangles and such, so it's not a problem.The lavender scent is my favorite because it's really light, and it's a relaxing scent. I also use the Tea Tree one for my car and stuff, but I can't use it on my body because the smell is unpleasant for me.
This is your basic liquid soap that lathers ok, and leaves skin fresh and clean but not stripped of its moisture. Its alot better than other drugstore brands, Nothing fancy but I'm leaning more towards organic products and this just does great for the price.
I've been wanting to try castille soap after reading all the rave reviews here on MUA. I purchased a small bottle of the lavender to bathe with. I found that this soap lathers very well and a little goes a really long way BUT this soap left my skin very dry and set my "world" on FIRE!!! Soo needless to say I will not be using this again as a body wash and dare not wash my hair with it. I have not yet used it as a household cleanser but would love it if it worked for that purpose.
i just got the sample one.. when i bought this, i didnt try it coz i dont knw where can i use this so it just stocked on my cabinet, but then when i read abt the good reviews here i tried it right away on my face, my first wash was totally great.. i felt the softness on my skin and it really cleansed my face, it can removes my makeup well..plus it didnt caused me any breakouts.. i also used this as my body wash and it didnt dried my skin.. i used this on my hair, it gave me a clarifying effect, it removes build ups well.. and what i really like abt this is the ingredients, no chemicals,no parabens just pure stuffs.. actually this was the time i've been concious and be an organic junkie..
so after the good effects on me,i used this everyday, i did what it supposed to be for like a week or two, but after few more weeks my skin started to dried out, even if i use it every other day same thing happened, i wanted to ignore that but it really caused sensitivity on my skin..when i stopped using it my skin back to normal.. too bad..
so now i use this to clean my makeup brushes, my hair comb and brush, it cleans them very well and easy plus it makes my makeup brushes soft..
i havnt tried it yet as to clean some other stuffs so i dont know but i think it will do great..
the smell is so so for me,i think peppermint is more lovely..
i still have this sample and it's still almost full.. so it's really a long term use.. plus affordable for a multi purpose product..
This is a great bathroom staple. You can use it to wash everything in the bathroom after your shower. Strong enough to eliminate odorss yet mild enough for kids. I just don't know how it got to be so expensive now that it is sold at whole foods. You can still catch it at national wholesale liquidators for cheap!
I heard about Dr. Bronner's before I went "all natural" because somebody recommended it to my bf, I think for his hair or something. After reading about it I was intrigued but never thought of purchasing it for myself until I wanted to rid myself of toxic products. I got rid of like 10 products and replaced them all with three Dr. Bronner's soaps, including this one. I use this one for laundry, cleaning and body wash primarily because of the scent and that it is liquid. I love lavender so I cannot speak for the scent since that will be biased. It is not mixed with other scents so you will get strictly lavender. I heard that you should dilute it, but since I use it on laundry I really do not have to do it for that since I use very little. For body wash I add a few drops to a wascloth or loofah and lather with water. I love the versatility and how pure the ingredients are. Great for after the gym!
A fantastic product with a multitude of uses. I use the peppermint in the laundry or bath, as well as for hands. During last Christmas, we had brought in our tree and trimmed branches off. Of course when you do that, you always end up with a bunch of sap on your hands that is impossible to get off unless you have some of that heavy duty stuff that mechanics use.... yuck. This washed the sap off pronto, with no scrubbing, or other ridiculous antics. Also used a small dab on a pot my son had used to fry fish in, dissolved the oil and grunge at the bottom instantly. I use the lavendar for laundry, bath, face (diluted), dishes, fabric refresher (again diluted), and even in my Hoover Floor Mate! I also use this soap in the kitchen and bathroom diluted and mixed with hydrogen peroxide for a non-chemical way to clean and sanitize it. I use this in the tub with a microfiber cloth and have rid myself of all those pesky bumps of my legs, arms, and back, too!!!!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!
in love? yes i am. i use this for a lot of things now :) i used it to clean my tub, toilet, countertops, stove, makeup brushes, beauty sponge, and to remove my makeup!!!
does it work? yes it does!
i love that you can dilute this stuff and it works wonders.
well worth it.
