I am a big fan of bar soap and was not disappointed with this one.

Dr. Bronner’s rose bar soap smells beautiful. It has a very feminine, delicate scent and lasts for a while after it has been washed off. When I buy more of this soap, I’ll probably buy an extra one to put in my scarf drawer to make them all smell nice!

The soap produced a good amount of lather for a product that contains no sodium lauryl sulphate. It was rich and creamy but rinsed away easily leaving my hands feeling nice and soft. Dr. Bronner’s say:

“The high foaming lather of our soaps is from their high coconut oil content.”

Dr. Bronner’s bar soap is also available in the following scents: almond, citrus, eucalyptus, lavender, peppermint, unscented baby mild and tea tree. These scents are available as liquid soap.

This is a great good value for money product if you want a delicate and feminine smelling soap free from artificial fragrances and foamers. It lasts for a long time because it solidifies quickly after use.
