Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Pine Tar Soap is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Alternative to supermarket soaps I have been using this product for about a month daily in the shower. It leaves a neutral fragrance although when being used it smells lightly of smokey pine. I am using as shampoo on my hair and beard as well as overall body cleansing. This product lathers easily and leaves my hair soft without the need for conditioner to feel soft when dry. The bars are fairly hard and do not turn into mush unless left without drainage after use. Just about an Ideal Product for someone who does not like "perfumed" and soft soaps. Thank you Swanson and Grandpa's Soap Company!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stinks like a sasquatch! I love the sandalwood soap. Thought I'd buy this one for the hubs. We both 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!
