Softsoap Bar Soap Review

Softsoap Coconut Bar

Back in 2009 I was lucky enough to do a Softsoap Body Wash Review and Giveaway. So, I am already a fan of Softsoap products. I mean I love their body wash and adore their hand soap. So, I was really happy to have the chance to try their new line of bar soap!

The Softsoap bar soap line came out in stores in August with three distinct and wonderful scents. There’s Juicy Pomegranate & Mango Infusions (which I actually saw at a local Wal-Mart and I smelled it through the packaging and it’s great), Sweet Honeysuckle & Orange Peel, and Coconut Scrub. I got to try the Coconut Scrub. Here is a bit of information about it.

Enriched with crushed coconut extract, this bar soap gently exfoliates to renew your skin’s surface, while helping retain natural moisture for soft, supple skin.

So, I’ll start by saying that this soap smells wonderful! It’s got a nice, relaxing scent to it. It’s kind of tropical with the coconut smell and it instantly takes me away to a nice place (versus the stress of life and classes). It’s definitely a good soap for a warm/hot shower or bath. It would definitely get me started in the mornings if I took I a shower in the morning. However, I take them at night, so it’s nice to unwind with.

The soap itself is pretty nice. It does a good job of exfoliating my skin and getting rid of dead skin cells. It doesn’t hurt or feel rough though. It leaves my skin feeling smooth and soft (not dried out or with a weird residue).

Between the wonderful scent and moisturizing effects, it’s good for a trip to get rid of the nastiness of the trip and to freshen up. It’s also good for just removing the dirt of an ordinary day. I definitely like this new line of bar soap from Softsoap. I’m looking forward to trying the pomegranate one for sure now.

Disclosure: I received free samples of soap. No compensation was received. The opinions expressed are my own.

    I bought the Body Butter Coconut Scrub Body Buff Wash…..I am throwing the last 1/3 of the bottle away because it is just too hard to get it out of the container. A container with a flat top that allows you to sore it upside down is so much nicer. Smelled okay etc..but too much trouble.

    I don’t buy bar soap. The blue body wash smells like a blue dumdum lollipop, though.
