  Delivery was fast, well packaged and kept up to date on status. It was a lifesaver for my sensitive skin. At 20 weeks pregnant I developed a rash and intense itching on my torso and legs that worsened during the night. Skin issues are apparently a common complaint in pregnancy. I already have sensitive skin and Eczema which is now under control. I was keen to try a natural solution rather than antihistamines and steroids. I came across a couple of online posts from people who had used Grandpa's Pine Tar Soap and thought I would give it a try, especially as coal tar soaps that are usually recommended for sensitive skin no longer use coal tar due to EU regulations. After a couple of days using this soap, alongside changing to non bio washing up powder and probiotics, the rash and itching began to clear. I've been using it now for the past 15 weeks. The rash and itching have now gone, it leaves my skin clean and clear, and one bar lasts me about 3-4 weeks with daily use. The smell might not be for everyone, just think of campfires but I quite like it and if you moisturise after showering then the scent doesn't linger on the skin. I think I'll be sticking with this post pregnancy.

  I was looking for a soap that helped with dry skin and rosacea, and could also be used as a shampoo for my hair and beard without leaving an itchy dryness. Grandpa's Wonder Pine Tar soap does the job. It does have a strong scent out of the box, but this lessens after the first use and becomes very pleasant. I definitely recommend this soap, and I will buy it again.

  This truly is a great product, the scent is of woodsmoke which when confined to the indoors is a gentle reminder of where you want to be. It lathers well in any water and the bars last a long time. This four pack should easily last until the end of the year.

  Smells great without being overpowering and works well for hair and body. I use it both at home and when out in the field.

  My husband has used this for a while now and it’s fantastic. A great shampoo and soap all in one. It helps especially with eczema, heals heal skin blemishes. We love natural items such as this. Highly recommend. Keep in a soap box and will keep for ages.

  I've struggled to find a soap that doesn't make me itch, especially during winter months, until I tried this. Good smell, reminds me of campfires. Environmentally friendly too. On the expensive side for everyday use.

  Lovely soap. If you like the smell (aka scent) - which I and, more importantly, SWMBO do - then well worth the price. Usual swift delivery from Woodlore.

  Not the cheapest soap in the world, but in my honest opinion one of the nicest smelling. It is the cheapest price online though. It's great for my skin too. Every time I use it I'm transported back to Fundamentals in the woods in Scotland. Which is dead nice in my urban shower. I buy in bulk to save on shipping. 3 years continuous use and I still love it. In fact it's lather good, sorry, couldn't resist.
