    Using several years – I’m a DEVOTED FAN, will never buy soap from another company. Gentle, non-drying, perfect for everyone. This soap is heaven on earth!

  2. I wanted to give 5 stars

    Vermont soap doesn’t compromise on their products; they stick to the least harmful ingredients. However, in this case the formulation just isn’t working for me. The smell is somewhat off-putting, the bars are very small and they start off with really sharp edges. The soap doesn’t lather up all that well but I can forgive that because i know a lot of the ‘lather’ from normal soaps is due to harsh chemicals.

    So even though I only can give this one 3 stars I remain a fan of Vermont Soap in general.

  5. Love it!

    This is my favorite of the bar soaps. I’ve also tried the aloe baby, lemongrass, oatmeal lavender, peppermint, balsam, woodspice, honey, and unscented cocoa butter soaps. This one is the most moisturizing for me. I love its smooth feel and how soft my hands are after using it. I have extremely sensitive skin: like, I-break-out-in-hives-or-eczema-or-some-other-sort-of-rash-several-times-a-week type of sensitive skin. I’ve never had a problem with this soap. Love it!

  6. I couldn’t ask for a better way to bathe

    I have dry sensitive skin and usually have to lather myself with moisturizers, creams and oils after taking a shower because my skin will start to itch. Not with Shea Butter Bar. I couldn’t ask for a better way to bathe.

  7. unbelievable results!

    I first purchased liquid unscented aloe Castile soap from Vermont Soap. I tried using it as a shampoo and body wash as well, and was so impressed with the results right away. I have never seen my straight fine but fairly thick hair so beautiful and soft and luscious. My hair is waist length and even then, tangling was minimal and I could brush my hair out wet WITHOUT conditioner which was impossible before. My hair felt squeaky clean but soft and pliable at the same time. The volumizing effect was great, in a good way. I recently received the shea butter bar and used it to wash my hair and body, and oh my…..this takes vermont soap to the next level. It was even better in my hair and my skin literally feels like silk (I was using locally made goat milk soap so I wasn’t using garbage soap in the first place). I my skin used to feel pebbly….now it is smooth and uniform. I used it on my face and while it is too early to tell for sure, I’m pretty sure it has suddenly decreased my face Eczema bc I haven’t done anything different except the soap. Wonderful product ….highly recommend!

  8. More than just soap

    What an amazingly moisturizing soap.

  9. Will take some getting used to, but like results so far

    This is my first try at natural bar soap, and bar soap in general. For years I was using Dove body wash but decided to try a more natural SLS-free option.

    Still trying to find my preferred method of washing with it. Right now I am trying a loofah soap pouch. It is hard to get it to lather, but that is due to the pouch itself. I think I will try a general wash cloth next. Also looking forward to using it as a shaving lubricant on my legs. This review is a bit premature but results so far are excellent. I feel clean and it is nice to know there are no moisture stripping detergents.

    Scent is…. I guess the best description is “natural”. Not strong, but definitely preferred over highly-scented body washes that make you stink like roses and clash with your perfume. Overall pleased and looking forward to using my honey bar once this is used up.
