If you’re a die hard fan of body wash, Proper has you covered. Spruce up your morning shower with a bottle of Proper Shower Gel.

Proper

Birchbox Breakdown

Positive energy comes in countless forms, from a tranquil morning shower to an afternoon of service. And Proper makes a point of targeting them all. This rich, French-milled bar soap is awash in feel-good vibes, using a hydrating blend of shea and olive oil to moisturize as it cleans. And if that doesn’t tip the scales, a portion of every sale is used to build clean water systems—because giving, in any context, is the greatest reward.

How it Works

French-milled, American-made, and entirely free of parabens, this luxurious bar soap doesn’t deal in cut corners. A one-two punch of shea and olive oil offer a welcome boost of moisture, while a fragrant blend of lychee, elderflower, and pear give it a light, refreshing scent that will punch up your morning shower. What's more, this bar weighs in at a hearty 6.25 ounces, so it will last much longer than your average drugstore fare.

How to Use

Using your hands or a loofah, massage this soap across your body to build a hearty lather. The formula foams up rich and creamy, so don’t rush to rinse it off.

Good Lather.
Sampled

Good stuff. Lathers very nice. I will say, like any bar soap, you will feel a certain "dryness" after washing it off. But it doesn't dry my skin out.

smells good
Sampled

The stuff smells good but I don't know what's so special about it barf so. I'm not to fandom the bar of soap because I don't really have a spot for my shower I have a spot for everything else I just feel like you put a bar of soap in the shower and leave it in there, it starts to get nasty.

Surprisingly Hydrating!
Sampled

I was expecting this to be similar to a hotel soap, but it was amazingly moisturizing! It felt so soft on my skin, and I felt hydrated and clean after using it. The scent is also really delicate and nice.

Awesome smell, but drying
Sampled

This stuff smells amazing! Lightly floral and herbal, without being perfume-y or astringent.

It offered lots of creamy lather, but I found my face to be dry shortly afterwards (if I didn't use my ØÅ!)

smells great, but very drying
Sampled

This soap smells really fantastic. It reminds me of something my grandparents would use. It smells very much like 'soap,' and in the era before soap was so gender binary. I like the fragrance a lot, but sadly it was very drying. After one use, i dried it out and gave it to my little brother for his boy scout camping trips.

Pretty decent

My husband is more of a shower gel kind of guy, so he wasn't in love with the bar soap. The smell was good, though, and it got the job done

Nice soap

The sample of the soap was a small circle. I think if it was a full size bar it would be much better. I was satisfied with it and the smell. The smell wasn't strong. But didn't lather up as much as I'd like.

Nice soft fragrant

I love this soap, and plan to order more. I was pleased with how it moisturized my skin, and there was no need to add cologne.

Lather is rich, scent is great, skin feels awesome
Sampled

I liked the smell of this soap, but my favorite feature was just how rich the lather got. I'm a tall guy so I usually have to use a lot of soap but a little of this stuff goes a long way. I'm using softened water so that may have boosted the overall result but even so I was impressed. Skin felt smooth and not over-dried. Smell was nice but not overpowering. I'd certainly keep this in mind if I was looking into switching to bar soap.
