Excellent Soap!If you like patchouli, you will LOVE this soap. It is the best patchouli soap you can buy. So many barely smell like patchouli but this one still is made with essential oil and smells divine. I have been using this soap for years and will continue to do so as long as Zum makes it.
A very soft and lovely scent from this soap. I can feel very calm almost every time after I shower with this soap. Other than that, it quite gentle on my sensitive skin, feel clean and doesn’t not dry out my skin after use. I wish this brand can bring more scent to us example lavender or rose in the future with the same good quality.
All of the Zum Bar's have wonderful fragrances, but patchouli is one that can be difficult to recreate. Zum does it perfectly, not too overbearing, and the soap itself lathers luxuriously, and the scent remains after rinsing, but is not overpowering. Excellent quality, contains goat's milk so soothing for skin of all types. does not dry skin and did I mention the incredible frangrance?
I adore this soap. Every single ZUM soap I have tried I love but so far this is my favorite. It is almost as good as my "favorite dirty hippie" soap by another brand .It is nice , smells great cleans and hydrates well and the scent lasts on skin but it is not overpowering. I also love the little scrubbies in the soap for exfoliating .. You feel super clean from this soap . I love the packaging and the presentation as well. Zum products are great.
Based on some reviews I'd not expected this soap to smell so harsh although Patchouli essential oil usually does. To me this smells very harsh, but Patchouli is beneficial to skin so I use it anyway. Strictly regarding scent, I think Patchouli needs at least one other essential oil to balance it. Zum Bars always produce creamy lathers which rinse off cleanly. I bought 2 Patchouli bars, and I'm considering grating the 2nd one to mix with a grated Amber Zum Bar so the former's harshness will be balanced by the latter's cloying sweetness - and vice versa. I would compact the mixed grated soaps into 2 pieces and use them in 2 hemp soap bags.
This smells soothing although it may not be a very desirable scent at first. You could see real bits. Size is quite small so is not a cheap option so I'm giving 4 stars for it as my skin does not feel exceedingly special using goat milk soap. It could be that I live in a tropical climate. Use it for face, hair and all if you wish and there is no harm with this being a natural soap. I actually gave this one as a gift and liked the fact that iHerb put this one in a plastic/seal as the soap I previously bought here did not come with any other packaging and absorbed the humidity in my room, feeling sticky and all.
