I don’t think it’s as moisturizing as other body soaps. I ended up using it as hand soap

I Read the Wrong Thing

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!
