I love this as a body wash. You only need to use a little and you get a lot of suds without your skin being dried out. The rose smell is subtle and lovely. It is really cheap and you can choose between a few different sized containers. The only downside is having to choose between the different scents!

I really like how this cleans. It's excellent for makeup brushes. I also like it as a body wash. My only complaint is that it doesn't really smell that much like roses. It's not an unpleasnt smell, but still not really rose like. I will try this in other scents.

I purchased the large bottle at Bed, Bath & Beyond for $9.99. I mainly got this to wash my makeup brushes. I have tried the small sized lavender scent before, so I thought I'd try a different scent. The scent is not like luxurious roses, it's smells like roses and plastic mixed together....What I love this for~
1. Getting makeup brushes clean- works on Sigma F80 and other hard to clean brushes- also great for cleaning the beauty blender sponge.
2. Washing my face- I have oily skin and this cleans it very well- almost to the point of stripping it- yet my skin isn't dry or tight feeling after I use it.
3. Works great for getting self tanner off your hands. I dislike using gloves, so this does the trick.
What I won't use it for is hair or body washing... I used it on my hair, which I though would be good for clarifying---when I rinsed my hair felt horrible and had a very bad texture- just like when you've bleached the heck out of it- it just felt---bad---. So I then washed it again with a regular shampoo, and it was ok. I don't know, but using this on your hair seems to suck all of the moisture out of it.
I would not use it to clean your body- I happened to use it one time in the bath, and when I got out my private part was burning-- burning like I had a UTI... I don't know if it was the soap or just the fragarance. I continued to burn for a few hours, but then it went away- thank God!! I won't chance it again.

I initially bought this as a 2 oz travel size and I'm glad I didn't buy the big bottle right away. The scent reminds me too much of my great-grandmother (in an old lady kind of way). I am giving it 5 lippies anyway even though I will buy other scents in the future.
Nevertheless, this makes a fantastic face and body wash. Dilute it and put it in a foaming soap dispenser for best results. I've also used this for dishes and laundry. It's great to be able to minimize the number of cleaning products to just one bottle. My favorite thing about this soap, however, is the fact that it's eco-friendly, vegan, Fair Trade, and made with natural ingredients. It's a feel good product that I just love!!

I don't think this stuff is the greatest at all, but I guess it's what you get with soap that can be used for washing your dishes, clothes, furniture, as well as your face... I love rose scented stuff, and while I do enjoy the scent of this stuff, I would have to say that it smells closer to bubble gum than rose (i happen to love bubble gum scented stuff too, so this was not a problem). The reason I don't like it so much is because I'm not crazy about the way it feels--leaves me with an oily residue--and whether I dilute it or not, it doesn't seem to lather well at all. I find that I go through a bottle just as quick--if not quicker--than a regular shower gel, which i can get for 1/2 the price. I basically just have to use even more of this stuff to make up for diluting it. Another disappointment is that this stuff always left an icky lingering scent on me that did not smell anything like roses or bubble gum or even soap (it is a weird oily scent). I tried the orange scented one recently and was left with this same oily scent, so I get the feeling that all of these soaps but the peppermint one leave it.

I love all the other Dr. Bronner's soaps I have tried and I loooooooooove rose scented things, especially natural rose and not the weird synthetic rose smell. But this doesn't smell like rose at all, it smells like a rose in a washing machine I'll give it that much. It still works amazing though, and I can see other people liking the scent so I'd suggest smelling it before you buy it cause these soaps really are the best.

I have really come to love this stuff. The rose scent is really beautiful--but don't expect it to smell like a rose-scented bodywash. It smells like good, clean soap, with a good dose of rose oil mixed in.
I use it as a body wash, a shampoo, a bath soak (it doesn't really bubble up in a bath but it makes your skin soft and clean), a laundry cleaner when I hand wash clothes (the company says you can use it in a washing machine but I have not tried that yet), and a floor cleaner.
Best of all, I dilute it by about half and put it in soap dispensers to use as a hand soap--it has cured my dry winter hands!
It is pricey, but a little goes a long way and it can replace so many other products.
Just a simple, effective, high-quality, useful product.

This scent, even though it doesn't smell anything like rose, is still oddly pleasing when used.
My skin is seriously clearing since washing my face with dr. bronner's, no pimple can materialise since I've started using this on a daily basis. For that I give it a 5. I use 2 drops in the morning and 4 at night to remove makeup. Yeah it's a little drying but nothing a bit of moisturiser can't fix. I want to try the lavender scent next because it seems like that scent is closer to the real scent, but if I get sick of that one, I wouldn't mind purchasing this again.

I love Dr. Bronner soaps! I started with peppermint and branched out to lavendar and rose. Peppermint of course is a rock solid favorite and the lavendar, although not accurate or truly authentic, was still a pleasant scent.
When I finally saw rose in the store I was beyond excited, I adore rose scented items. I didn't want to open this is the store so I just picked up a big ol bottle and rushed home.....mistake.
This is the funkiest scent, very synthetic, very heavy .sweet and chemically and there is not even the tiniest note of rose or anything else natural for that matter. The only thing rose about this product is the name and the color of the label. I really considered just dumping this is the trash or using it around the house, but when I realized I spent like $12.00 on this I sucked it up and I am still using this.
I still resent it every bath time...pass on this, get lavendar if you want a floral scent or at the least open this in the store and give it a whiff....you are gonna thank me.

I like this product for a clarifying shampoo. I read a few reviews and watched a few videos. It had a nice smell not too over powering. I thought it did a good job on cleaning my locks and removing build up too. One thing to note is that you have to dilute the product. I like it.

Good product that really can be used for many different purposes. I used for showering, bathing, and general cleaning purposes and it does a great job without leaving my skin dry. I also like the rose scent although I think it's not from real roses but from a 'rose-like' scent such as geranium. I think it's great though that it smells natural and actually is natural, unlike those with superficial rose scents. Overall, I like it and will buy it again.

I love anything that smells like rose so this, I love to use. I switch between this and the Citrus scent in the shower, but mostly I use the Citrus for my hair and the Rose for my body. So, as a body wash its perfect, I use it full strength so it suds really well. Nothing can beat this in my books. I love Dr. Bronners and I thank them for making something so versatile.

I was using this as a handwash but I find it dries my skin (my hands are prone to dryness). I'm disappointed because it seems to work for everyone else! Now I use it mainly to wash my makeup brushes, but I've also washed stockings with it as well as using it to wipe down my bathroom furniture. I don't think much of the scent - it's inoffensive, but strikes me as artificial, reminding me of a rose talcum powder I had once as a kid in the eighties. Nevertheless, two lippies for its versatility and entertaining packaging.

One of the best new products by Dr. Bronner's!! Yes the scent is a little off a garden rose, but it's wonderful! The scent reminds me of a lush greener rose with some apricot overtones. Not sweet, but more herbal. It's clean smelling -- and isn't that what we want from our cleansers?!
Like ALL Dr. Bronner's Castile Soaps.... a little goes a long way! It's effective in cleansing face, body without being too drying. But I would recommend moisturzing afterwards. I like it most because it's Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) free --- which is great as it is non-irritating to the skin and scalp! This is my new shampoo!! Using Dr. Bronner's castile soap has made my scalp so much healthier. For years.... I thought I had Dandruff --------- I didn't! I had a SLS allergy. Obviously after using castile soap for almost a year now... no more dandruff.. no itchiness. My scalp is clean and clear! And my hair? Gorgeous shine and very managable (please know I ALWAYS follow with a good conditioner). And I don't have to shampoo as often. Which allows my scalp to do what it needs to do ... AND this cuts down on my S&C budget. I don't buy shampoo anymore, but I do buy more expensive condidtioners (such as Kiehl's Olive Fruit OIl conditioner... my HG for now).... Love this as my new shampoo.... and recommend highly for everything!
This is my new shampoo, body cleasner, floor cleanser, spray bottle cleanser for countertops and such. I love it!! Highly recommended for a clean you and a happy home~

I bought a small travel size of this at wholefoods. While it has great cleansing abilities for me, it isn't a true rose smell as I expected. It was instead a tad sweeter if that makes sense. It is soothing however and the smell makes my bathroom smell nice after I take a shower. I just prefer the other scents from Dr. Bronner's. This however can serve many uses and I even wash some of my undergarments with it since its gentle and oil based.

Oooh i really love this stuff! My favourite product to use in the shower is still cleansing shower oil but it's a very expensive habit to maintain so upon hearing lots of good reviews for Dr. Bronner's i thought i'd give it a go. I'm a sucker for anything floral smelling and while it doesn't have a traditional rose oil scent (it's more like a rosewater fragrance) it is fresh and nice regardless. I use it straight out of the bottle, i tried diluting it in water as suggested and i wouldn't recommend this as it didn't lather up well (although diluted it worked fine as a handwash if you use it on dry hands then rinse with water). I threw some into the laundry too as i ran out of laundry detergent the day i bought it and it appeared to do a great job and gave my clothes a lovely scent! And being a rather curious person i even tried it as a toothpaste, it was a bit strange but if you're worried about stuff like glycerin in toothpastes which can apparently coat the teeth, and you bought it in say the peppermint flavour i think you could get used to it. I bought it in a health food shop in Australia (i haven't seen it anywhere else) and it cost about $11 for the 8 oz bottle which isn't too bad for a "proper" soap. It leaves your skin feeling nice and clean without the dryness. I hate those crappy sodium lauryl sulfate "soaps" from the supermarket that give you a false moisturising feeling that then makes you feel "stripped" a few minutes later, and they're not even cheap! If i could pay less for a huge bottle i would use it as a laundry detergent too but i think this is a bit extravagent at the current price! Overall, great product and i think i'll try peppermint next.

I love thisrose smell, very soothing and mild. I like to add some to my bath water.

I didn't like this smell at all and it didn't smell like roses. I prefer the other scents Dr. Bronner has to offer.

I love this stuff and use it on everything; I wash my face with it, the floors, the dog, the dishes, as a laundry booster, etc. It reminds me of clean laundry in a southern house. It may be a bit drying for most skin types but you can still use it to clean the home. I love florals so it smells awesome to me.

I generally love Dr. Bronner's soaps--great lathering, have 18 different uses, etc., but I just can't stand the way the rose castille soap smells--I'm planning on trying lavender as soon as this runs out.
