  I have very sensitive skin and have always struggled to find a soap the doesn’t cause flare ups. I normally use simple soap but really needed a change. This soap is very good, it smells like lifebuoy coal tar soap. It is ever so slightly drying in my shins and my head but otherwise it is excellent. It’s also true that the price at Woodlore is very competitive. Very good for travelling as you don’t need shampoo too. Highly recommended.

  I switched to using pine tar soap and shampoo a few years ago after going on some Woodlore courses and haven't looked back since. If you have short hair you could get away with only using soap otherwise you'll need to use pine tar shampoo as well. The pine tar soap does leave a bit more residue to clean over liquid soap but that shouldn't put you off using it.

  This was a repeat purchase of soap that I have now been using close on a year. I like its clean smell and its lathering. The water here (Somerset) is very hard but the soap lathered well, we have just had a softener fitted and the difference is dramatic. The amount of soap used has gone down, a bar now lasts a couple of months instead of the one month previously. It is difficult to tell but I feel that it helps with my dry skin, which is why I tried it in the first place. The Woodlore site is informative and easy to use. Delivery is very quick, within a couple of days.

  Used many times before, it has a strong pine smell but incredibly good for the skin. Recommended especially if you suffer from skin conditions .
