The smell sticks to you smellls good to me
Simply put this soap will make feel like a man of the forest, chopping down trees in flannel. Then as you complete your lathertastic adventure you'll feel as if you are sitting down with Bigfoot enjoying a cup of Joe.
So I bought one bar of this soap because the one I wanted was out of stock, and because I read about the benefits of pine tar for faces/acne. (To tide the family over while I researched recipes and gathered ingredients). Unfortunately, I didn't read the ingredients or reviews closely to see that this does not have pine tar in it, only a pine fragrance. And speaking of fragrance, I do NOT like the scent of this soap. In fact after washing my face with it, I almost washed my face again because I kept smelling it.
I do love the grittiness to this due to the sand in it, and may have to incorporate something like it in my own charcoal face soap plans.
Overall though, disappointed because it doesn't have pine tar and because of the smell. It's not a bar I'll purchase again, and will probably end up giving away this bar.
This loaf is not a true Pine Tar loaf, it is just scented that way. With that said, it is still a decent bar of soap. All of this soap guy soap has a pleasant scent that stays with the soap and as of three weeks of curing has not faded. The soap bubbles nicely, but doesn't really lather too much. That isn't an issue for me, though. It doesn't have near the moisturizing or lathering properties of my handmade soap, but, again, for the price, you can't beat it. I am offering this as a value line of soap at festivals, fairs, and on my website. It also does not contain palm oil which is a huge bonus. The downside is that it is losing a lot of water weight in curing, but oddly enough only in certain scents. Only a good three month cure will tell the weight of this soap, and the full story. Definitely well worth the purchase, especially since all I have to do is stamp and package - no dirty dishes, no materials sourcing, no raw materials inventory... it's a recommended, good value.
These types of soap are not that easy to find, and when you do, certainly not cheap. This bar is priced for all. The reason I gave it 4 and not 5 stars is not because of the quality of the soap, but because, as of all the soaps from BA, they do not let them cure long enough. I get these soaps for a quick turn around, but when they do arrive, still need to let them cure for another week or so, defeating the purpose of getting them. Other than that, they are great!!
