  An awesome product. After only one wash my beard grew an inch longer and my flannel nearly caught fire when I put it on. Supporting testimonials. Nothing gets me more aroused than a smell of an ent coming home from Battle of Isengard. Amy, my partner said it smells like something you would want to sink your teeth in after a rough night out. Justin, my pet beaver commented. Caution when combined with Nordic Summer Pine tar oil balm, it causes the level of raw masculinity to grow exponentially to previously unattainable levels, you will be able to communicate with trees and crush solid rock with the power of your mind. Wild animals flow flock to you like to the Snow White. A perfect blend of charred firewood an ash with a subtle hint of testosterone. 10/10. I would recommend.

  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.
