  My son has very dry skin and eczema. This soap is used by him daily and helps to maintain a healthier skin. I am very pleased with customer service when I order this from Woodlore, the order arrives quickly and is always well packaged as well as the website being well presented. 5 stars for Woodlore as well as the soap.

  I actually love and use this soap all the time at home and in camp. Great smell if you like the smokey smell of campfire but don't worry it's not overpowering.

  I’m very pleased with this product. I have used it in the shower and shaved with it is an excellent soap. I read lots of reviews before purchasing and can confirm that your customers were accurate in their comments. I really like the aroma; it reminds me of my camps in Canada. I will be trying the Witch Hazel in future. Keep up the great service and top rate products.

  This soap is brilliant. It lathers well and I love the smell. If you have any type of skin condition such as psoriasis (as I do) it won’t magically cure it but it will leave your skin supple thereby eliminating dryness and itching. It has certainty done that for me. I know it’s a bit pricey but I have not found it cheaper anywhere else.

  Undoubtedly the best soap I've ever used. Bath, shower and shaving, even contemplating putting a bar aside for our dog. Also I recently attended my doctor for a skin irritation on my hands, and I've had steroid cream, antibiotic steroid cream and various hand moisturisers to no great effect. So one evening when the itching on my hands was unbearable I washed them with Grandpa's Wonder Pine Tar Soap and left a thick heavy lather on my hands for about 10 minutes, rinsed it off and the itching had stopped. My hands are not fully recovered from the irritation I've been suffering, but the soap makes a notable difference. I am also pleased to say both my teenage sons use it as well.

  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.

  It's a bit expensive but worth it, a lot of soaps give me spots but not this, it's great - Thanks
