I purchased the bar soap as an alternative to the harsh body washes i had been using to treat my eczema. I figured that the all natural ingredients and the special moisturizers would be great for my troubled skin, but it didn't make much difference. I do love the smell of the Pinot Rouge and the Almond silk, they smell well but do not linger long. the Clean Orange is forgettable. I didn't feel much moisturized after using them except for a whole minute in the shower using the Almond silk. Once it rinses away my skin felt like more was taken out than left in it. Use it but please follow up with a in-shower moisturizer if you have dry skin like myself....does Birchbox carry in shower moisturizers?!
I was pleased with the quality of these items. I bought these as a gift for a co-worker and was happy to see how sizable they were, in addition to the variety of great scents. She was very happy to receive them :) You can't even get these through the TAY website.
Great soap set
Love the soaps and the box. I use these in my guest bathroom for overnight guest They all feel they are staying in a luxury resort. The scents are great even just sitting out. Brings a little spring into any room anytime of year, and regardless of the weather outside
Finally - a quality organic soap with unique scents!
When I first received my shipment from Birchbox, I couldn't figure out why my box was so heavy since I had only ordered soap and chocolates. When I opened the box, I realized that these soaps were why this box was so heavy: they weigh over half a pound each, and there are three of them!
The three smells that are Clean Orange, Almond Silk, and Pinot Rouge. The Pinot Rouge bar was created exclusively for this Borchbox set. The Clean Orange scent is very fresh; it reminds me of summer on the coast of Greece. The Almond Silk smells of almond and cherry, almost like marzipan. The Pinot Rouge is the most sophisticated of the scents; it reminds me of a very sweet wine mixed with a hint of oak.
The size of these bars, the scents, and the fact they are made with organic ingredients and quality essentials oils make them well worth the price of the set.
