I just tried all of the bar soaps and here are my thoughts:
BAR SOAP THOUGHTS
I remember Glycerin soap was something my grand mom used all of the time and I remember the scent the soap itself had. Unique in a way and unforgettable.
...
I tried all of the five bars I have...and my skin is so smooth. And I love that about this kind of soap.
Suds: using a wash cloth I had a nice amount. Using a loofa poofie from BBW I had TONS. Washing my hands in the sink, lots of suds, and very creamy texture to them. They are still very soft.
Scent: in the package, they are strong. Refreshing. But you can detect that hint of glycerin as a base. But yummy...and I would recommend every scent I got so far.
In the shower the scent is not too strong...which I guess is why they said you can use them with fragrance because it wont interfere with it.
Washing your hands with the soap, the scent is subtle too...but there....just enough. lighter than if you used a hand soap. The bar does have the nubs on one side and it is flat on the other.
Scent in the packaging:
Coconut Lime Verbena -I found it more lime with a hint of coconut. nice perfect combo..I couldn't stop sniffing it in the package
Creamy Almond & Sunflower
Fresh Water Waves & Sandalwood
Iced Tangerine Mojito - crisp orange very refreshing, another I smelled over and over...
Ocean Melon and Mango - I smelled melon
Pink Hibiscus & Pomegranate - my first thought was raspberry and pomegranate. very nice combo
Summer Rain & Linen - very clean, light linen and a hint of apple
There were two I didn't get and I will just to try them too. I would recommend trying these. They are priced at $8.50 a bar....yep a bit pricey....but are included in the buy/ get free sales and you can use coupons so it does drop the price down a bit. Nice gift idea.
