  Been using this for years now. Love the stuff, no frills and cleans great and smells like the outdoors. Nice to have one bar for hair, beard, body, cloths etc when travelling.

  I've been using this stuff for years, and it's fantastic for everything from washing hair, beard, clothes, you name it. I would have given it 5 stars, except I've only just noticed it uses palm oil, and there's no mention of the sustainability or otherwise of the source. Given the high-profile and ethos of Woodlore and the Mears brand, I'd expect a degree of corporate responsibility to be exercised here. This fact alone makes me rethink future purchases of the product. If you don't give a monkey's about the impact commercial oil palm plantations have on tropical rainforests and the people who depend on them for their livelihoods, knock yourselves out. It's otherwise perfect.

  The best soap out there.... Period! Leaves you with that squeaky clean feeling... Seriously good for wet shaving too... I can see why Ray rates it so much... Not all soaps leave you feeling really cleansed... This does... Every trip on exped... It's the first thing to go I my wash kit! Highly recommended

  Expensive but top notch. Wish I could use it every day but cost prohibitive. 5 star soap; 4 star price.

  A really nice quality bar, strong smelling pine forest smell that works well as not only soap, but as an insect repellent base, deodoriser and can be used for shaving. Rich in oils.

  We just love this stuff! No more athletes foot for me, also works well for other skin conditions too. Seems to shift stubborn stains way better than regular soaps. The service is excellent too, less than 24 hours from clicking the mouse to getting the parcel! Well done.

  Fantastic! I occasionally get eczema on my feet - pine tar just seems to work wonders in eliminating it. I generally use a pumice stone to get rid of dry skin and then wash everyday with pine tar soap, after about two weeks its gone! Great stuff all natural product on the regular shopping list from now on.

  My favourite soap for cleaning. Order arrived very quickly and in perfect condition. Excellently priced for 4 bars, in fact cheapest supplier in the UK. Will definitely be purchasing same item from Woodlore again. Highly recommended supplier and product.
