Ayurvedic Bar Soap Himalayan Rose
Cloyiing, Overpowering Scent
Although I've tried a few of Auromere's products & found them satisfactory, the Rose Soap is not. I purchased it as a stocking stuffer for my daugher who enjoys the smell of roses. Honestly I knew it was a bad sign because after I wrapped up the soap, I immediately developed a headache! At first my daughter said she like the smell, but once she showered with the soap, she formed a different opinion. She told me her skin felt tight & dry & she disliked the overpowering sweet smell. Usually I purchase Dr. Woods Rose soap for her, because it has a light scent & helps her skin with any teenage outbreaks & leaves it soft. Sorry Auromere, because I dislike giving a negative opinion to a company that produces many quality, organic products. Unfortunately this time not everything was 'rosey.' Perhaps I'll try your lavendar soap (a favorite scent of mine) and will be pleasantly surprised.

Very mild soap and effective as it is gentle. Good value.

I bought this along with other soaps that are similar to try them out. The other soaps that I used before this one lasted a long time so it was a really long time before I used this. So it was already old and the smell was different than when I got it. So this review is for an old bar of this.
Smell: I can't be really definitive about the smell because mine was an old bar. It doesn't really smell like rose. My mom doesn't like it but I think it is an acceptable clean smell even though it is old. The smell lasts a long time so I think I smell better than if I used a body wash. The smell fills up the whole bathroom.
I use this for my face body and hair.
On my face it made it a bit red so maybe I'm sensitive to something in it or maybe it drew the blood to my face. It didn't hurt but was soft and didn't make me break out.
When I wash my body. I still feel not clean in the shower. I almost feel sticky without being sticky. I don't really know how else to explain it. I know I'm clean but it doesn't feel like it. But when I get out of the shower and dry off all the way then I feel much better. My skin is so super soft and I don't feel sticky anymore.
Hair: When I wash my hair it is actually easier to use this than regular soap. It lathers up really well. It makes my hair look fuller. My hair is normally thin and flat but this has added volume and my hair waves more. This makes my hair clump together more and it is hard to run my fingers through it. It looks pretty but it doesn't feel pretty. The smell stays with my hair for a long time so it still smells good.
It rinses cleanly. I noticed that regular shampoo and body wash suds gather at the bottom of the shower but this does not.

Tiny little rose petals in the soap! It is a wonderful soap that does not dry out mine skin.

This is a really nice rose scent - not too strong. The quality of this brand is also very good, and the bar is small and manageable. Makes the whole bathroom smell of soft rose.

I love the smell of this soap - but I usually use body wash instead of bar soap, so I'd quit buying it. Then I realized it was quick and easy to make into body wash, and now one bar lasts for a really long time.

My skin is sensitive and this soap works well for me. Whenever I make an order with Swanson I buy some. My favorite is the sandalwood.

Wonderful in everyway!
I purchased enough last holiday season to give to my clients because of the low price. They all loved it so I'm back this year. Some wanted more so I gave them what was left after the holidays. Personally I love this soap too! The smell is beautiful and clean, and it leaves my skin moisturized and smooth. Didn't have to use lotion after bathing with this. Great for travel. My 94 year old mother-in-law loves it too.

Not only is this the best-scented soap ever, but it is made with Ayurvedic herbs and oils, is cruelty-free, and makes your skin feel wonderful.

Better than most
I like to use moisturizing soaps especially after a day out in the sun.
This cleanses better than dove and deoterizes very nicely underarms. The essential oils are outstanding quality. The only problem is it dissolves if water runs too long. So I can expect to get about no more than fifteen uses out of it tops. Overall, I would buy again.

Great soap. I will continue to buy it, and try ALL the other Auromere soaps..actually sent one of each to my son. I'm looking forward to trying all.

If you like the smell of roses, you will love this soap. It's one of my favorites!! It also makes the bathroom smell so nice after your shower. I wish it was bigger, but for the price-- it's a perfect size.
