    This is a very nice, gentle soap and I wanted to like it. I wouldn't buy it again though because it started to go mushy and fall apart and I ended up with several soft bits of soap. If the consistency was firmer and it lasted longer as a complete bar of soap I would buy it again.

    Hi Rachel, thanks for your review and glad you like the soap! Soap going mushy as not uncommon problem if not left to drain properly as doesn't contain artificial hardeners like commercial soap. It should remain firm if left to drain and dry out between uses. Hope that helps! :)

    Oh dear, it seems I'm in the minority because I did not like this soap bar at all. I have very dry sky and thought this gentle exfoliant would be nice on my face and body. Usually I would avoid all traditional "soap" because of that squeaky clean feel I get after using it (that makes you want to apply moisturiser immediately), and because it stings when you get it in your eyes, and disappointingly this soap was exactly the same. It's okay on my body but I'm not sure how the oats are supposed to exfoliate your skin unless you use the bar directly on your body (not an easy thing to do with slippery soap) and so instead the only parts of me exfoliated were my hands... I am a big fan of all the other Odylique products I've tried but I'm afraid this one gets a thumbs down from me...

    Hi Laura,
    For day to day use, our Honey and Oat Cleansing Bar is intended for day to day gentle exfoliation (including the face) but if you have very dry skin and areas needing targeted exfoliation, the Cleansing Bar could be supplemented with treatment with Coconut Candy Scrub, formulated for more concentrated exfoliation, whilst leaving the driest of skin smooth and polished.

    Contains excellent ingredients. Do note that all soap is saponified using lye. A very good soap for all skin especially sensitive and dry. The only downside is they do not very long as they are not double, triple or quadruple-milled, which makes them very costly. Please Odylique, double or triple mill them.

    [Odylique Reply]

    Glad to hear you like the soap, Adeela! In regards to double milling the soaps, this is only relevant to commercial soaps which are made by melting bulk-purchased dried soap ‘noodles’ in water – milling simply ensures the reconstituted soap mix is smooth and free from grittiness.
    As our castile bars are made from scratch with pure organic extra virgin olive oil according to the traditional cold-process method, milling doesn’t come into it. Drying during the curing process is what makes soaps harder and long-lasting (ours are dried for 6 weeks before sale), as does allowing them to drain and dry out between use.
    Hope this helps! :)

    I have just recently tried your rose moisturiser, coconut scrub, and a handmade soap and I am delighted to say these products are simply gorgeous. I have a chemical allergy/sensitivity and was desperate - I reacted badly to everything and nothing seemed to work for me until I tried essential care. I am now going to place a larger order with confidence and just want to say thank you so very much and please please, don't ever stop making them - no matter what keep going, as this is definitely the future in skin care and cosmetics.
