My husband enjoys the scented Dr. Bronner soaps and likes that they are all natural. He convinced me to try the unscented baby version. I have really dry, sensitive skin and religiously use Dove soap.
This was extremely drying and irritated my skin. After a few uses my skin had visible flaky dry and scaly looking rough patches.
I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone with a baby or sensitive skin.

Just bought this and tried it, and my skin feels amazing! Soft/balanced.. not dry. The tea tree version can be a bit drying, but it is AMAZING for clearing up acne. The minty one is great, too... but the cooling sensation is too intense during the winter... may bust it out in a month or two.

This is a foaming liquid soap concentrate - you are supposed to dilute it before using. It is definitely cheap - cheaper than most drugstore cleansers. It foams nicely and cleans well, though I found it leaves a soapy feeling behind.
The label has more writing and information than any other product I have ever tried - more than a haircolouring kit. But most of it isn't useful. For example, it says to dilute the product - but there are no instructions anywhere on how to dilute it. I also checked the website - there is nothing. It also says 16 uses....again, no information on what it can be used for. That was really weird, because there is so much to read on the bottle, but all of it is just extolling the product.
There is also religious propaganda on the bottle....I wasn't offended by it, but confused about how they found room on the label to go on about God and Mohammed (I am serious) but no room for simple instructions.
I like the fact that this is Fair Trade Certified, but probably won't repurchase.

I found this to be very drying. I diluted it and it was still drying out my skin.

The best liquid soap ever made! So stop reading these reviews and go buy it already! Use it for your face, hair, body and shaving. Plus it's fun to read the crazy rantings from Dr. Bronner all over the label while in the shower. There are only two brands of soap: Chagrin Valley soap and Dr. Bronner's magic soap. Period end of story

After trying EVERYTHING for YEARS and only having TEMPORARY results before my skin went crazy again, I found Dr. Bronner's and I am in LOVE! I use it for everything (face, body, shaving...). My skin balanced out after I started using this as a facial cleanser - I dilute it and use it in a foaming pump. I don't breakout anymore, I don't get oily or too dry and my skin isn't irritated. It's perfect! In the past I've used lines where there are about 6 steps (clinique acne solutions, vichy normaderm...) and now I follow this routine:
Cleanse with Dr. Bronner's baby sensitive liquid soap
Moisturize with Lush Imperialis
Cleanse with Dr. Bronner's baby sensitive liquid soap
Use clarisonic with this soap every other day
If necessary, I use Thursday's Plantation pure tea tree oil on any spots
Moisturize with Lush Imperialis.
Results = best complexion in YEARS!!!

I bought this to replace my oil face cleanser. I wear long wearing foundation and like oil cleansers to remove my make up. I love my clinique balm but was looking for a cheaper alternative. This did an amazing job of removing my makeup. I had to add a bit of water because when put on a dry face it wouldn't spread. It also didnt leave an oily film. The only problem that i found was that it really stung my face and eyes like crazy. I dont have overly sensitive skin either. I think im just going to stick with my Clinique balm and use this as a body wash.

Dr. Bronner's liquid soap is amazing! I use it as a body wash and use it to shave my legs. My skin feels amazing, it does not dry out the skin and a bottle lasts a while. Since using it, I noticed that my elbows, knees and hands are not chapped. I even use less lotion than before.

I have very dry and sensitive skin so for a very long time have been thinking about usting a castile soap. This product is everywhere and many of my co-workers and friends use it. I purchased the baby formula because the others contain possible irritants in their essential oils. I diluted it to about 50/50 to use as a body wash, I also have eczema and dermititis...hello sensitive skin issues! I found this extremely drying. Too drying for me. I did not use it as a face wash, body only. Supposedly it has many other uses, but I wanted it for a body wash and it doesn't cut it for me. I will be returning it.
Also, the label is PACKED with writing which I assumed were instructions for how to use it. But when I got it home and looked at it, it's some kind of wack-job nut-case religious ranting and something about owls and birth control. What???? I mean, freaky weird stuff! Why is it on a soap bottle label? Not the product for me, even though so many others think it's fantastic. The hunt for a non-drying, non-irritating, truly unscented body wash goes on.

I've been dealing with acne for a couple months now, and I started using this on my face a couple weeks ago, and on my chest over a month ago. At first, my skin felt really great and extremely clean and soft, but after two weeks of use on my face, I developed lots of really tiny pimples all over my cheeks and forehead. I switched to Cetaphil about a week ago, and those little bumps are subsiding. I kept using it on my chest for over a month, but I saw no improvement there either, so I stopped using it on my body. I have a feeling it had to do with the high pH level (around 9). I used it lightly diluted at first, then diluted it to about 50:50 water:soap, and still no luck.
I still will use this as a handwash, and for other general cleaning. I really want to support a company like Dr Bronner's, because they're natural, easy on the environment, and apparently they donate a lot of profit and their lowest paid workers don't make a whole lot less than their highest paid, and so on. I will continue to buy this, just won't use it on my face/acne prone areas.

This is a nice, basic natural soap. I use it as a body and face wash while travelling, to keep my products to a minimum. I feel very clean when I use it. It's unscented as others have said, and it's non-scent is a bit weird when you sniff the bottle or apply it, but this doesn't stick to your skin in any noticeable way. I wish it foamed up a bit more because I have to pour it a few times when I'm using it as a body wash, but there's almost always a trade-off when you're using natural products. I'm planning to switch to this for my all the time body and face wash instead of just for travel, because I love that it's multi-purpose and so well-priced.
EDIT: Way too drying for my face. Going to try a few other natural bar soaps.

Update: I've changed my dilution of this product to be 50% soap, 45% water, 5% lemon juice. I found that the mixture of lemon juice and olive oil was creating its own separate foam layer within the bottle, so I removed the olive oil as the extra moisturizing benefits in the shower is not as important as I moisturize after showering anyway. Daily moisturizing is still not necessary though as the mixture does not dry my skin out even in the cold of northern Canada.
This is my HG wash for face and body - I can't imagine a day when this stuff doesn't exist anymore! For face and body applications, I dilute the soap to be 50% soap, 40% water, 5% olive oil, 5% tea tree oil or lemon juice. This will take all makeup, sunscreen, dirt, sweat, and grime off you without serious elbow grease. I can gently work it into the area around my eyes (closed of course!) to remove eyeliner and mascara. In a pinch, it can be used for hair and even brushing your teeth!
It foams very well and is extremely gentle. I have had no problems with over-drying, redness, or irritation and it has been well over 2 years of use. Without dilution, I can see how it can be a little strong for dry skins, but even then it is perfect for my dehydrated oily-combo skin type.
I won't travel without this little gem because it doubles as a laundry detergent. It's amazing how gentle yet powerful it is at removing dirt even from articles of clothing! I also use it for my makeup brushes and emergency household cleaning. Wherever there is a sink in my house, there is a little bottle of the diluted soap. This stuff seriously cleans - I always have peace of mind that every last unwanted dirt speck is gone. Best of all, it's cruelty-free and becoming more and more readily available in Canadian grocery/drug stores and pharmacies.
It's on average $20 CAD for a 944mL bottle. With daily use for face/body and occasional extra cleaning, the bottle lasts me about 3 to 4 months - extremely economical!

I bought this and the lavender version line at iherb. I love it. A litttle goes a long way. I love that it is made of organic oils, and that it gets a very good safety rating online at ewg.org/skindeep, and it is lso evironmentally friendly. I use it as both a body wash and a face wash. As a face wash, use 4 parts water to 1 part soap, and dispense from a stainless steel foaming face wash dispenser. It cleans without drying. As a body wash, I just use a few drops. A little goes a long way. Do not expect tons of lather, as it does not contain lathering chemicals. I also use this to clean my make up brushes with great results. If you want to buy it on iherb, you get free shipping with orders over 20 dollars and no sles tax. You can use referral code NIB514 to get 5 dollars off your first order.

I LOVE this soap. I have very sensitive acne prone skin that gets dry patches. I have been using this for several months now and my skin has never been better. I will definitely be a life-long user.

This is a GREAT soap because it lasts forever! and it doesn't have any chemicals in it what so ever. ALL the ingredients are organic and fair trade!!!!! you can also reuse the bottle when it is empty!!!!! This is one of the few amazing organic complelty harmless for people and the earth that works!!! Its starting to show up at Target and Krogers too so thats neat it is so easy to get a hold of!

Love this as a face wash! It works fantastically to remove makeup in the evenings. I don't dilute this one usually but I use it on a wet facial brush so I suppose that is slightly diluting it.
It's cleared up my skin and I can use it around my eyes with no troubles, unlike the peppermint or tea tree, neither of which I use for my face on a regular basis. (Good shampoo and body washes though)
Again though, my gripe with Bronner's is the labelling! The religious rantings. I need to go buy some pretty bottles to empty them into.

My family uses Dr. Bronner's for several things. I use is as shampoo. My son uses this on his face with a visible improvement in his acne. I also use a few drops of this with patchouli & tea tree essential oil and distilled water to make a mild cleaner for hard surfaces in my home. I've even used it as dishwashing liquid in a pinch! Nice, natural product with many uses!

I bought this to clean a navel piercing, and ended up trying it on my face one day. This thing wiped out the acne I've been struggling with for years. (And it isn't even an acne product!) Don't be fooled by the "baby-mild" name- this thing is strong! A tiny drop is enough to lather your whole face, and when you rinse it off, your face will feel tight. Don't go overboard with this, as it can be really drying. The huge bottles sort of suck because the soap tends to just flow out of the top with the slightest tilt. I highly recommend this, but I will not be repurchasing because this thing had already CURED my face!

Love this stuff! It is very gentle, perfect for facial cleansing, body wash and shampoo (no need of conditioner). I have curly hair that is difficult to keep in good condition with most of the shampoos, but this is a winner - it leaves the hair soft, shiny and with well shaped curls. Will keep using it, probably will try the other variations as well. I bought it from www.iherb.com for very good price (code TOV 126 for $10 discount).

I love this liquid soap. I use it as my body wash and it is very gentle. I also use it to wash my makeup brushes. I buy this on sale for $7.99. It is a HUGE bottle and lasts forever. I buy cheap, clear, plastic squirt bottles from the dollar store and mix 1/4 dr. bronner's and then fill with water. I have not tried it for anything else yet, but I will.
