Review- Save Your Skin Exfoliating Bar Soap

Organically-grown Aloe Vera will keep skin moisturized and our vegetable based oils along with retained glycerin make this triple-milled soap a great lathering rich bar. We add a bit of organic yerba maté to provide a nutrient-rich vitamin and mineral drink for your skin. Together, these ingredients will leave your body feeling smooth, moisturized and toned.

Save Your Skin soaps are super environmentally friendly. The company uses natural and organic ingredients, biodegradable packaging, and each product sold saves an acre of rainforest for one year! I really really wanted to like this product because the company is so green and seems to put a lot of effort into creating 100% sustainable products. However I've never been a fan of bar soap and this one just disappointed. The "rainforest" scent was pretty awful, and left my skin with a weird, drying residue that is characteristic of most bar soaps. It also really didn't do much exfoliating, although some people who like a really mild scrub might like that. Overall if you're really into using earth-friendly products you'll have a real motivation to buy this soap, especially since the price point is comparable to other non-organic soaps on the market. But I think I'll just stick to my regular body wash.
