I Read the Wrong Thing

Posted   by Julia Wilson from FORT WORTH, Texas

So....somehow I read that this was shampoo instead of body wash. Not entirely sure how I managed to do that, but oh well. As far as body wash goes, it's not bad, but definitely isn't my first choice in terms of what I would use. Just don't use it in your hair like I accidentally did the first time!

Great soap

This soap doesn’t dry out my skin like Axe used to. As such a thinner lotion is all I need. Tho smell is not overpowering but just right.

I love to use this as a body wash after a workout. It keeps my skin clear and feels soothing on sore muscles. As a bonus, it makes my bathroom smell amazing!

I’ve been using this soap for a short while and I’m in love. It smells and feels great. A couple other simple scents would be nice. But I have no complaints.

This one lasts forever, and you can definitely feel the tingle of the peppermint! A great wake-me-up, or wonderful scalp refresher!

Amazing for my sensitive skin!

Posted   by Ana Exiga from Los Angeles, California

I will have to say this actually replaced my favorite bodywash from Dr. Bronner's! This multi use soap is amazing! It doesn't dry out your skin and the peppermint fragrance is not overpowering whatsover. It did help clear my sinuses when I used it during warm showers when I was sick. Now my mom is obsessed with it too, and it looks like I need to buy another bottle soon!
