I have eczema and having this skin condition is chronic therefore I will always have it but luckily I am able to control it. My go to product was the cortisone 10 but after doing some research I learned that using too much of steroid cream can be bad for your skin overtime so I decided to opt for something different. At first I used the neosperon eczema cream which did nothing to get rid of the itch or redness but it was a bit soothing, however it was not working well for me. So I decided to try dr bonners soap because I read online that tea tree oil is anti bacterial and a natural remedy to help combat eczema and I am so happy that I tried this !! I don't write many reviews I think this is probably my second one and I only write reviews if I think the product is worthy and this one truly is. At first it burns bc my skin was open bc I scratched a lot and bled but I kept at it and would wash it at least twice a day sometimes more depending on how dirty or hot and sweaty the day is. Now less than a week my skin is better and not red and itchy and I even use it for my acne and it cleared it up a lot !! In the picture it's a bit red but it's not scabby at all and scaly like it was before. I am still using this product and will continue !! I am not insecure about my neck anymore I would often wear scarves to hide my eczema bc I was so embarrassed about it . Now I don't have to shy away bc of it and I feel so much better and comftorable in my own skin. It is bc of this soap that my acne cleared up more also but I also used sulfur soap for my acne and for my eczema. Basically what I used for my acne I used for my eczema because my eczema is on my neck so it's easier to use the same products at least for me. Also I used this face sponge by Nexcare and it's amazing !!! I think that all these products used together really helped clear up and soothe my eczema and even helped with my acne! Overall I think it was this soap that did all the work it's bc it's based on tea tree oil and that is a great natural remedy to help fight bacteria and such. I will definitely repurchase !

This soap is the only thing that truly works for my skin. I have had acne prone skin for years with close to NOTHING being a solution, natural, organic or conventional. This soap is MAGIC.

I have combination skin (very prone to dry spots but also oily) and all I do it put some of this on my green clay konjac sponge and gently rub the sponge on my face. It gets all my face makeup off (I just wear light foundation and powder) and my face feels so clean and soft post cleansing. I then moisturize with Living Libation's Seabuckthorn Best Skin Ever and BOOM. 2 product routine, that has gotten me my best skin EVER.

I also use this as a body wash, and for the ingredients and price (i've been using the 4oz bottle that was $5) you just can't go wrong. Though maybe if you dislike a tea tree scent, the tea tree does happen to be very strong.

(TIP: If this is drying your skin out, try mixing in a few drops of jojoba oil with a few drops of the soap in your hand. That's what I did when I first started using this on my face, but eventually just used the soap on it's own and found it worked fine for my combination skin.)

It may be a bit drying and the smell needs some getting use to but my skin is looking really good! I get occasional breakouts and I have a lot of dark spots and old acne spots that are fading with the help of this soap. A drop or 2 will lather in wet hands as does the bar soap.

I am on my second 32 ounce bottle of Dr. Bronner's Tea Tree Soap and I will continue buying it as long as the company makes it! I have so many uses for this soap -- I primarily use it as my shower gel as I find that tea tree oil helps with the occasional bacne as well as the KP on my arms. My partner uses Dr. Bronner's Peppermint Soap, and while I like that one too (so tingly!), this one is better for my skin type. I'm never super dry after using it, although I do moisturizer once I'm out of the shower. Those with super dry skin might not like it as much as I do.

I also use the soap to clean my makeup brushes and, in a pinch, it works nicely as a face wash (diluted, of course!) and somewhat decently as a shampoo. My hair got oilier more quickly than it usually does, but it was definitely clean.

I would say that you must love the smell of tea tree oil if you're going to use this! I adore the scent, so it's no surprise that this is my favorite of the ones I've tried (peppermint is good, like I said, and the almond oil soap smells lovely, too -- like marzipan), but others who don't like how tea tree oil smells, the scent might be too pungent for you, even if you like the effects it has on your skin. Also, cost-wise, get the biggest bottle you can find! My 32 ounce bottle, which usually costs around $15 - $20, will last around 7 - 8 months with daily use.

i love this stuff! i bought the bar soap so i could use it on an exfoliating body wrap on my back. when i cut out dairy my acne cleared up (on my face) but my back still had break outs. this has totally cleared them up! it leaves my back feeling a bit tight / dry, so i just make sure to moisturize afterwards. i also use the baby version of the bar to clean my makeup sponges.. it's the best.

I actually first started using the Lavender scented version of this soap for my face, and used the Tea Tree version to clean my makeup brushes. I love these soaps. My skin never looked so good. It doesn't prevent me from ever having a pimple (nothing will) but it dries up the whiteheads fairly quickly, and help bring my cystic pimples to the surface sooner as well.

I find that it removes my makeup pretty well except for my waterproof mascara, I usually use olive oil or an eye makeup remover to break that down before cleansing my face.

This soap can be drying but for me, applying some moisturizer does the trick. If you are prone to dry skin then you may want to start by using this product once a day to see how your skin handles it. I use it at night, and my Aveeno moisturizing bar in the morning. Best thing is how much you get. These bottles are huge! The fact that I found a product that works for my acne-prone face and will last a long time makes me a happy customer.

I will use about a half teaspoon in a container full of hot water (I use a recycled margarine container) and I will dunk my brushes into the container to get them soaked and swirl the brushes in the palm of my hand to loosen the makeup from the brush hairs. Then rinse until the water runs clear. I love multipurpose products and this is at the top of my "favorites" list!

**UPDATE:
So after using this for maybe two months, it just became too drying on my skin. My skin was overproducing oil because it was so dry. I was a complete grease ball and due to the overproduction of oil, I was breaking out even worse and peeling like nobody's business. I was so embarrassed! I tried only using it once a day or a few times a week but it wasn't working out. I'm sad that the effects didn't last but while it worked it helped a lot. Now I just use it as a body wash and it does help to keep my skin clear of hyperpigmentation, but I guess my face just became too sensitive for it.

--
I stumbled upon this when searching for reviews on the almond version as a body wash. I read a lot of positive reviews about the tree soap version on acne.org and a testimony on Lisa Bronner's site. I have suffered from severe acne for a little over a decade now and have tried every concoction, drugstore product, high-end product, spa product, treatment, the clarisonic, the PMD, and every prescription except for Accutane. So when I say I've dealt with acne I'm not like the others who get 3 bumps a month during their period claiming to have acne-prone skin. It has been less than a week of using this soap and I am floored by my results so far.

I use about 3 drops with water, morning and night and it can be a bit drying. The first day I was peeling like crazy, but I think my skin is getting used to it. This gets me really clean and removes all my makeup. I have quite a bit of discoloration on my face from acne scars and it has improved tremendously. I can't attribute everything solely to this soap because I am also using prescription topicals from my dermatologist, but believe it has done more for me in 2 days than these prescriptions have done in 2 months.

I never thought that something all-natural would be this effective and I hope this continues to be the answer to my prayers. I would like to try the lavender and coconut lotion as a moisturizer.

My skin is extremely sensitive and blemish-prone.
I was hesitant to try because using coconut oil on my face as moisturizer broke me out before. I think because this is a soap, it is different - it hasn't broke me out, at least. It is healing up my acne and clearing my pores.
I use the bar soap in the evening and it takes off everything and my face feels clean but not tight. In the morning after my shower all I use is an apple cider vinegar + witch hazel toner - using this soap twice a day may be too drying.
I used some grapeseed oil after the tea tree soap at first, but eventually I didn't even need moisturizer. I really hope one day this soap will make my skin perfect! For now, I still have blemishes.. but I only have been doing this method for a few weeks. Try it!!!!

I love dr bronners. So much that I wrote ralph bronner and praised him for his fathers works. Now we talk on the phone and send eachother pictures via snail mail. Anyway...
this soap is too drying for my face, but its great for many other things.
I have used dr. bronners over 10 years. Tea tree is especially helpful for abrasions and cuts. I have stretched ears, when they get upset and crunchy I wash them with dr. bronners tea tree. Thats it, heal in 3 days tops. I also use tea tree dr. b for cleaning. When I drop a few drops of it in water, shake, itll clean up any kitchen mess. if it leaves residue, wet a rag or paper towel with vinegar. But never mix soap and vinegar! Its a mess.
