I really like the concept of this being natural and so on, i do Think the scent is a bit dissapointing, It's just added ordinary easential oils. So if you buy the lavender one, the scent is just like the lavender easential oil. I do find they are a bit to drying for my skin and therefor I won't be buying again.

I always have a small bottle of this in my stash. Such a wonderful, multi-purpose product. I've used this as a body wash (great); as a shampoo (dilute, dilute, dilute or it will dry out your hair); as a facial wash (dilute as well); as a makeup brush cleaner (really cuts through the grime) & as a cleaning product. I've tried the Eucalyptus, Peppermint and Tea Tree variants and loved them all.

I used it as a body wash which I think is great. Unless you have dry skin, or you can just moisturize afterwards. I used it as a shampoo and will never do it again, because it dried out my hair and made it stringy. I never tried it to brush my teeth but I did use it to wash my makeup brushes and it did a great job.

My fav is the citrus soap. It cleans well and smells so refreshing. I have tried the eucalyptus soap and it's great too. The peppermint soap gives a huge cooling sensation on the skin which is strange when I first tried it but, it definitely helps me wake up in the morning that's for sure lol. A little too intense for me though. I'm looking forward to trying out the lavender and unscented one. I like that these liquid soaps have many uses, simple ingredients, comes in an array of sizes and is affordable and concentrated. My go to body wash. I recommend these soaps, awesome value.

HG Brush cleaner! I just use a small drop of this in a cup with water and dunk my brushes in it, then rinse it clean. I usually have to do a double dunk/clean for foundation/beauty blender. I haven't tried this as a face or anything else as I feel it's way too harsh. My fav scents are: lavender, peppermint and rose<3

I recently bought a small trial size of the Peppermint Castille soap. This soap has been really making the rounds within the beauty community, hailed to be a workhorse and claiming to work for numerous things - laundry detergent, shaving, shampoo, face cleanser, degreaser etc etc! So I decided to give it a whirl primarily in the bath, as my shampoo, face cleanser and leg-shaving. I'm not sure if it's just me, but the mentha in this soap is much too strong for me. It left a slight burning sensation on my skin. I know that menthol is very cooling, but this was just so strong! I know that the directions say to dilute this with water, but since I was in the bath I was applying a small amount either with my hands, or a very wet bath sponge.

I also found it to be very drying, which is surprising since many of the ingredients are oils. Other than that, it lathered nicely and I liked the feel of it, though the watery-substance takes some getting used to. I may try this in the laundry, or maybe as a house hold cleaner for floors, but I am not putting it on my skin ever again. I know that there are a lot of Dr. Bronner's varieties out there, but for the price, the packaging, and the amount of work you have to do just to make it function normally, I'm not sure it's worth it for my specific needs.

I tried to use the unscented version of this as a makeup remover after hearing lots of people do the same, and this stuff was horrible for that! I have extremely oily skin and somehow this gave my skin an extremely tight, stripped feeling. I wanted to love this, and I'm sure it has many great uses, but makeup removal is not one of them!

I have tried the lavender and rose soaps as face wash, shampoo and hand soap diluted to a 1T/8oz of water, and this is just too drying. I cut the soap even more and then the product doesn't lather. I couldn't find my happy medium. As an all purpose cleaner, it made everything sticky- I'll stick to vinegar. The only use I have for this is the tea tree version for under my arms: it cuts the stink really well during the summer months. For that reason alone, I will repurchase.

The awesomeness of Dr. Bronner's liquid soaps is reflected by the 200+ reviews, with a 90% repurchase rate. Still, here is my personal story of why I love this magic liquid:

Several years ago, I went on a 7-day trek in Nepal. I trekked anywhere between 5-8 hours a day, with all of my possessions in a backpack, and sweating through layers of clothing on a daily basis (eeww). BUT, I had one little 2 oz. Dr. Bronner's peppermint soap with me, and what a heaven sent/scent it was. Dirty skin? Stinky pits? Nasty hair? Funky underwear? Sweaty clothes? That little bottle took care of it ALL. A few undiluted drops on my hands and some lathering got my face/body/hairs squeaky clean, everyday. Wet my clothes and add a few more undiluted drops, directly on the clothes or in a basin, and voila! Clean clothes. The peppermint scent helped to refresh my mind, body, and outer wear.

The only thing I didn't use it for was for tooth brushing. I didn't like the idea of tasting soap and brought along a small tube of toothpaste. But, anyone who has gone camping/trekking while having to carry all supplies can appreciate how precious space can be, or how even a little weight can make a difference. During the trek, I used up only 1/3 of it. For this environmentally conscious gal, the soap proved it was magical. And to think...I had gotten the bottle for $1 in the bargain bin of a drugstore!

It had been my first exposure to Dr. Bronner's, but I was so glad I had bet my cleaning needs on that little bottle. Definitely made me a fan for life! Nowadays, I have several 32 fl oz bottles around the house for various purposes. It's especially awesome for making DIY foaming soap.

I never thought to write a review on this stuff...it's been so much a part of my life, for as long as I can remember, that it fades into scenery. Over the years I have used all the scents but the ones I buy continually are Peppermint and Almond. (Note: be careful with the Peppermint one in "sensitive" areas of the body...) Summer in Arizona can be HOT, and the Peppermint soap literally cools the temperature of our skin. It feels wonderful. I never use anything with "lather", and I've never tried to make this liquid soap foam. I apply it on a shower pouf and wash. I was surprised to read reviews that talk about its lather. I guess living most of my life with Los Angeles water kept me unaware of the joy of soap bubbles, because I never knew this stuff to lather! (I don't think I'd like it if it did...I don't like a "soapy" feel). The Rose smells lovely, but it's just too strong for my nose. It seems like everbody I know uses these soaps, or has at least tried them, and I don't know of anyone who hasn't been intrigued by the quirky, hippie "preachings" on the bottles. It's impossible not to be drawn into reading them in the shower. What better to do in the shower than read about uniting humanity on "Spaceship Earth"? I like this soap for hand soap, body cleanser, laundry detergent, household cleaning, and makeup brush cleaner, but I can't use it in my hair...I tried it once...and I still get shivers thinking about it. My skin loves olive oil, so it's not surprising castile soap leaves it in clean, soft condition. I put the castile soap in my own pump hand-soap bottles as well. A little goes a long way, and they keep my family and our environment clean.
