  I have used this soap for several years now. I have regularly bought it from this site. The purchase process is quick and easy, the delivery excellent. The soap is kind to my skin and also good for hair. It works in hard and soft water. The smell may not be to everyone's taste but it does not hang around and smells quite pleasant after it has been used. I find that each bar lasts approximately a month. I stick the remnants of the last bar onto the new one and therefore I have no waste. I shall continue using it.

  I’ve been using Grandpa's Pine Tar Soap for years; I use it for everything. Personal washing, shaving using a brush for lathering, clothes while camping. It’s good to the last tiny bit! I love the smoky aroma but it doesn’t leave me smelling like a campfire :-)

  I've been using this for years now and love it. Theres something about it that feels so much better and more comfortable than modern gells etc, I love the smell too. I wash my hair with it and it even works well for washing dishes if the need arises.

  This soap is fantastic. I have been using it for years. I use nothing else, skin, hair and shaving; it does it all. I regularly recommend it to friends and family. The only downside is the price. If I look back through my orders four bars started at £16. This order was £20 for four bars and six months later the price has gone to £24 for four bars. At this rate it won't be long before it has doubled the original price. Coal tar soaps can do a similar job and they are still coming in at under £1 a bar. Unfortunately they don't have the same amazing smell.

  I am always pleased by this soap, it lathers well in both soft and hard water and feels very good on the skin. It also washes hair (and beard) leaving both soft and clean. The smell is of woods and trees a lovely reminder of the outdoors even inside.

  An absolutely awesome product! My skin feels better and it smells so good! My partner has itchy skin due to medications and the itch has lessened. I am very happy with this product and will in time purchase more.
