Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product I buy six bars at a time. It is by far the best product for washing beards. I think the pine tar is great for the skin, and smells wonderful to me. I do not find the odor very strong, and I really like it. I'll leave the perfume soaps to the ladies. February 28, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Stinks like a sasquatch! I love the sandalwood soap. Thought I'd buy this one for the hubs. We both agree...it has a pungent odor of a SASQUATCH! We threw it out in the woods! Our whole house stunk from this one bar of soap for three days! January 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Smoke Alarms The second I opened this Pine Tar Soap box, I thought all of the smoke alarms in my house would go off at the same time. It seriously smells like a camp fire and I love it. There is something invigorating about it. It lathers up well and leaves my skin squeaky clean and smooth. The soap bar has a strong smell, but you wont. I think the scent seeps into your skin and makes you manlier. July 7, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Use to be a biger bar soap Good product, but when I did start buying it several years ago was a bigger bar soap and did last longer. August 22, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Stinky! Stinky! Stinky! I REALLY wanted to like this soap, given that it's all-natural, gentle, and received mostly positive reviews. Pooh-poohing the negative reviews regarding the strong scent, I purchased.... OMG--this stuff STINKS!!! I love fresh pine scent. I also enjoy the smell of a campfire. But showering with this soap is like throwing an old tire on that campfire and sitting directly downwind. Hubby also promptly rejected it based on the horrendous stench. Other than a NASCAR fanatic, I can't imagine anyone who would enjoy the smell of this soap. Thankfully, this is the first time I have been stung by Swanson's positive reviewers. July 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE this stuff !!!! The best smelling and lathering soap around. I have always loved this stuff. Makes great gifts. If you have never tried Grandpa's Tar Soap, you don't know what you're missing. Great, great, great soap! June 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by grampa pine tar soap We love this soap because it is great for your skin. It lasts a long time and when it gets small my husband uses it in his shaving cup for shaving soap. May 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great soap at a very good price. January 23, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Grandpa's Pine Tar Soap I like this soap! It has a rather enjoyable and clean smell to me. You can smell it as soon as you walk in the bathroom. Lathers up nice and doesn't dry or make your skin feel oily. It is definitely a manly soap. I do like the fact that it doesn't smell like perfume and also does not smell like a tar pit! There is a reason it's been around for so many years, It's a quality product. January 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by pine tar soap This SOAP is the best soap that i have used it cleans right down to the skin quickly, lathers up quickly, rinses off quickly, and doesn't leave any smell other than clean what more can you ask for? July 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Found At Last This soap is phenominal. Only thing that has soothed and moisturised dry skin on face, scalp, and body for my husband and I. I so appreciate its natural ingredients and that I can now be rid of chemical-filled, expensive shampoos, body washes, and soaps. Rich lather, long-lasting bar. July 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by man soap Great soap for men, quality, thick lather that works well for whole body including hair, soothing rustic pine smell. I always have a few bars stocked up and alternate between this and nubian heritage soap. June 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best soap! I absolutely love this soap. It leaves my skin super fresh with a great earthy smell. I love that it's pine. As I feel it really does a great job cleaning. I'm a huge fan of pine products and natural products and you can't beat Swanson on prices. May 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Soap I was hooked on this product from the first time I used it at a friends house. To be honest, I couldn't stop smelling my hands. I love the pine tar product and it is quite effective! April 8, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great little soap I love how it makes my husband smell. I like having a descent priced soap that is organic. April 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pine tar soap this is good soap it works well March 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love IT Okay, so I am a patchouli fan. This soap lathers beautifully, cleans really well, and smells wonderful. Sometimes after I wash my face I use alcohol on a cotton ball, there is always a trace of dirt..... not with Grandpa's soap. February 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! Free of the harsh chemicals and additives that are so common in many soaps, this soap is terrific for the skin. It rinses clean, leaving behind no itchy residue. The smell is a bit woodsy and maybe even a bit manly for my taste being a woman, but it's not as strong after rinsing but that's a small price to pay in avoiding painting my entire body in harsh chemicals each and every day. I use other products to smell flowery, needing my soap natural. Also, you cannot beat the Swanson price at a fraction of others in addition to the fast service/shipping! February 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by My favorite soap. I like to take navy showers but find many soaps are burning my face by the time I get to my feet. Not so with Grandpa's Pine Tar Soap, which produces a wonderful, rich lather, is mild, yet cleans as well as anything, bar or liquid, I've ever used. Strong aroma? Yes, but it dissipates soon enough and to me, at least, isn't at all objectionable. YMMV, but don't let negative comments scare you away. Swanson's price is the best you'll find. Add a bar to your next order, try it for awhile, and if you decide you don't like it you'll be out less than 3 bucks. On the other hand, you may just discover your new favorite soap. January 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by smells different, but lathers up well. I really like this soap, it gets me clean, clean, clean! September 21, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Purchase Ever Love this soap ,my dad had ordered some and i tried it. the soap worked out well with me being in an chemical plant working , now all of my associates at work are hook on it, and i order it for them September 6, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by For the guys I bought this soap for the guys in the household. None have complained of an unpleasent scent. All agree it works well. January 31, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Non Drying, Fresh and REAL scent! Gotta disagree with my friend here who claims that the smell of Grandpa's soap is reminiscent of rubber tires. The reality is, this smells like pine tar. A somewhat 'bitter' smell, for lack of a better word, piney for sure, but fresh and clean. Having said that, everyone is different, so your enjoyment of this product may vary, depending on how much you like real pine smells. Perhaps if you are expecting a Christmas tree smell you may be disappointed -- this is a pine tar based product, and will smell accordingly. Again, it's a complex scent, and rewarding to those who give it a chance. Now, as to it's effectiveness as a soap. Grandpa's is fantastic. It's cleansing without drying as a hand soap, and can be used sparingly on the face and other sensitive parts. I even used it in my hair to good effect. So yes -- I love this soap, and I don't care who knows it. Try a bar! November 8, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for Laundry I make my own laundry soap out of baking soda wash soap, borax and this pine soap. I have tried other bar soaps in the mix but the pine soap makes my laundry cleaner. Whites are whiter. I dont care for the smell when it is in the bar from, but my laundry comes out smelling fresh with no perfume type smell. Just a clean smell. October 25, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by regarding the smell... Some folks have likened the smell of this soap to old tires....It depends on where you grew up, I think. Every single person I have given this soap to in Canada has LOVED the smell! It is exactly like a campfire built with pine logs. I live in Alberta, where it is ridiculously dry, and found that I can use this soap ten times a day without my hands turning into flaking paper. Thanks Grandpa! June 6, 2011
