Dr. Bronner's Shikakai Soap in Lavender Review

I love Dr. Bronner's castile soaps and when I won this little gem from a Noah's facebook contest, along with a Dr. Bronner's bar soap, I was over the moon excited! Up until I won this, I was using Bath & Body Works antibacterial hand soap. I know *hangs head in shame*, naughty girl!  I was actually using that and the Bronner's castile liquid soap, depended on what was nearest to me really. I'm in love, love, loveee!

Description: Certified by the same National Organic Program that certifies food our pump soaps are smooth and luxurious with no synthetic detergents or preservatives. Organic Shikakai comes from the seed pods of the small South Asian tree Acadia Concinna and has been used for millennia in India as a gentle conditioning cleanser for both skin and hair. We extract the Shikakai in organic sugar and grape juice and combine with Dr. Bronner's unsurpassed castile soap base for rich emollient lather and moisturizing after feel.


This hand soap is as expected being a Dr. Bronner's product, awesome! The soap comes in a purple (for lavender, get it? *winks*) plastic bottle with the fun to read label. It's a pretty runny formula, but lathers well and smells beautiful. For the record, my boyfriend is all about the BBW scented hand soaps, but really enjoys using this one and enjoys the scent. It's not an overpowering or overwhelming lavender, but it's a definite lavender. Lavender, lavender, lavender, lavender, how many times can I say that in a sentence? It leaves my hands sooooo soft, clean and smelling like lavender. I couldn't figure out how to avoid using that word again. The only thing that I don't like about this soap, is that it leaves an oily film in my sink which means I have to clean it every couple of days instead of weekly. I love having a clean bathroom but hate actually cleaning it, anyone else feel the same? I would still definitely repurchase though.

Retails on the Dr. Bronner's website for $9.99 USD for 12 oz or $16.99 USD for 24 oz. I'm sure prices will vary depending on where you purchase it. This soap comes in 5 scents; Lavender, Peppermint, Tea Tree, Unscented & Lemongrass Lime.

Which scent would you (or have you) tried?






Ingredients: Organic White Grape Juice, Organic Sucrose*, Organic Coconut Oil*, Potassium Hydroxide**, Organic Olive Oil*, Organic Shikakai Powder, Organic Hemp Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Lavender Oil, Citric Acid, Tocopherol
