This is great for handwashing spots out of clothes. It is awsome to wash makeup brushes. The list goes on and on-I love the smell and love the deep cleaning ability that it has. I would have never even looked at this if it wasn't for MUA. Thanks!
my favorite thing to wash my makeup brushes!! used to use baby shampoo but i feel this stuff really deep cleans my brushes....lathers pretty and washes off easily...i have this in Baby
Who can argue with 100% natural? I don't care that it doesn't work up a great lather, it doesn't need to - it still cleans quite well and can be used for so many different things - even washing veggies! it also doesn't lay on my skin and create a barrier that doesn't allow my skin to breathe - nor does it dry me out. In fact, it makes winter skin so much easier to manage. I love the almond scented one. My fave.
I bought the peppermint bar and we love it. Fresh peppermint scent, very refreshing. Lathers nicely and not drying. Great for getting you going in the morning, and probably helps with the nausea if you're pregnant or hungover LOL!
We have a number of Bronner's products in our household, including the Baby Mild Liquid Soap and the Peppermint liquid soap version. My husband was raised on Bronner's Peppermint Bar and Liquid soaps and knew little else. We also use the Peppermint in our laundry, and it's not problematic at all. The Baby Mild (unscented) liquid soap works well on my toddler's skin, and I use it in the bath and shower on a daily basis with no issues, whatsoever. Good results for my husband who has severe dermatitis, and this is the only cleanser that he can use on his skin that does not cause horrific flare ups.The labels are a part of the 'cult' following of Dr. Bronner-his philosophy on life, religion and spiritual beliefs-makes for an interesting read while bathing, and goes to the heart of how the Bronner soap company has continued to be run by his family, today. All soaps are certified "Fair Trade". Completely Biodegradable and Vegetable-Based. Ingredients: Water, Saponified Organic Coconut, Organic Palm, Organic Olive Oils (w/Retained Glycerin), Organic Hemp Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Essential Oils, Citric Acid, Vitamin E.
*These soaps do take some getting used to, especially if you have been accustomed to soaps and cleansers with large quantities of SLS's. I use them all very sparingly. The liquid versions are just that-very liquid. A little truly does go a long way.
Used this to wash my face (after diluting with water) and to wash my makeup brushes. It's okay as a face wash but as a brush cleanser the lavender soap left a nasty odor. I couldn't use my brushes at all because the smell made me want to throw up. Horrible, and what's with the label?
I would recommend specifically the Baby Mild bar soap (light blue) because 1) I find organic bar soaps to be less drying to my skin than organic liquid soaps, and 2) unscented soaps are WAY healthier for women's sensitive areas (the chemicals and products typically put in soaps that produce fragrance irritate delicate skin in sensitive female areas and can promote dryness, itching, UTIs, etc... doctors always say to never use soap in that area because of this, although I find this soap doesn't irritate my skin when I'm washing in that area... be advised to still avoid going too far into any delicate skin area there with soap!). I don't typically have issues with dry skin, as I live in a tropical climate, which is why this may not be a big deal for me. In fact, I find that this soap happens to leave my skin feeling softer than most other soaps have. It's unscented, but in no way smells bad like some "unscented" products I've used. This leaves no greasy or stubborn residue, rinses off clean and fast (I happen to not be a fan of that residue left by soaps like Dove that seem to take forever to rinse off... I guess some might like that smooth, slippery feeling on their skin, but I just feel greasy...). It's a good choice for those who appreciate organic products, simplicity, and gentleness. Those interested in the company's corporate and environmental ethics (which are admirable) can see it's website.
This is one of my favorite obscure products. I use the peppermint version.
It's the best thing for a sore-muscle soak after working out or if you sustain a muscle injury or sprain. Just drop a couple capfuls in your bath.
Also great for cooling down on hot summer nights.
One of my favorite things though is the bottle. It's covered with crazy preachy kind of new-age hippy witticisms and quotes. An entertaining read while waiting for your conditioner to sink in.
One note: it says you can use it for all sorts of things including a mouth gargle... I tried it for the heck of it. That it something I will not be doing again :oP
I bought this in the lavender scent and used it as a non SLS shampoo. Since it is concentrated, I diluted it with water and added castor oil. It left my hair, soft and moisturized and did not strip it. It's a staple for me now.
My big hippie fiance introduced me to these soaps, and I love them! I've used them on my body and face, but to be honest, I don't think that's the best application. I feel like when used on the body or hair, there's a slight residue and depending on the 'scent/flavor/type', such as peppermint, it can be too tingly or too harsh- though my fiance likes to scrub his back with this once in a while to really slough off dead skin cell build up. However for household cleaning, this AMAZING! I use this to clean my synthetic makeup brushes- it gets foundation, lipstick and concealer out incredibly fast but leaves them feeling silkier than when I bought them- plus the scents are great for those smelly brushes whose odors you can't get rid of. I also use this in addition to ACV and a few other natural household ingredients to wash my floors, counters, etc because I have pets whom I don't want to expose to harsh cleaner chemicals on a daily basis but do like having a squeaky clean house.
I used to buy these at Target, but realized I was being completely cheated when I found the big bottle at Trader Joe's for about 7 bucks. The peppermint variety also feels really good over mosquito bites and other irritations. There's an infinite amount of uses for this stuff, but the best one, according to the fiance is that when he gets bored while sitting on the crapper, he has a zany bottle to read.
