5Dr Bronner Rose Pure Castile Liquid Soap review

I was enamoured by all the positive product reviews I had read on both Amazon and Make up Alley and wanted to try this soap out for myself.

Having never used a castile soap before, I was impressed with the claim that there are 18 uses and the fact that it contains no chemical nasties in the formula such as mineral oil, parabens and SLS (to name but a few).

However, after careful consideration, I fear this product is not the new Chanel no. 5 and I do have negatives to convey:

1) I was not very impressed with the fragrance - upon opening the bottle, my first impression was that of smelling Turkish halwa or a rose fragrance designed for the MTV generation - sweet in the extreme and instantly forgettable.

2) When using the soap on exfoliating gloves in the shower, I found there was hardly any rose fragrance and that the predominant smell I was getting was hemp oil. Smelling like a teenage boy's bedroom is not what was expected or desired and I think that in the main, this is where the soap fails.

3) The lather of this soap is acceptable, but certainly doesn't yield mounds and mounds as stated in some reviews - I found that I had to cleanse different parts of my body with a fresh application of soap each time.

4) I was left with an *extremely* squeaky-clean feeling at the end of my shower, which, to some people, may be a boon, but to me felt rather weird - I wasn't sure if my skin had been moisturised effectively or not, so, for extra measure, I used a neutral-smelling body butter, afterwards.

This being said, the price was excellent for the amount of product given (c. £8.80 for a 4 oz. bottle) and I would be interested in trying out the peppermint version, to see if the outcome (general feeling) would be any different from the rose.

Also, when the soap says liquid castile - it really does mean 'liquid.'

All in all, an acceptable purchase. Don't believe the hype, though.
