To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
+ The Olive Oil is not all flowery and perfume like so many soaps. This is more neutral scent. For a guy I was happy about this.
-- My wife and daughter and three sons all came to me and asked, "What is this soap that stinks?!?" Nobody else likes the Olive Oil scent. Loss of a star because they just want to throw it away.
+ Scent is light, not overbearing
+ Wife likes using this as a facial soap since it moisturizes.
+ I have a child with eczema and this does not inflame his ailment
+ Soap lather's well and quickly. Don't have a use a lot to get a lather going.
> I see in the Community Questions that at least three times people ask what are the ingredients. A good thing too, since there doesn't seem to be any other way to get the ingredients. 1. I expected ingredients list with the soap = none provided 2. I expected ingredients list here on Amazon = none provided
> Cost is okay at $6.50. I'm use to getting the $2 oatmeal soap bar from Trader Joe's. Thus, you decide if $6.50 is worth it for a single soap bar.
> This didn't really fit my "standard" travel soap container till I used it a while and let it shrink a bit. Thus you may consider cutting it in half for anyone wanting to take this on travel...or I guess you could find a large enough sandwich bag to take with you.
OVERALL: A good bar of soap and I don't have to smell overly feminine using it.
When I opened the envelope there was a white powdery substance all inside and on the soap. I think it was soap residue. Washed off the cellophane packaging around the soap. Usable but sure was a big mess. Ordered this soap many times over the years. Never had this issue. May not order from them unless this issue is fixed. A response from the seller would be nice.
The olive oil smells like a petting zoo. Pretty funny when I noticed it took about 4 showers before I noticed. You can only smell it when it lathered though. It WILL NOT make your bathroom smell like stables. I will use it till it’s done which is gonna be a while. I’m clean and my skin is soft and that makes me happy. But it does smell like a farm animal in the shower not after you get out thank god.
