My husband has been wanting to try these new generations of bar soaps for a while so we were excited to be offered products to review from Bootleg Bath. We love that the packaging is no-frills cardboard that can be recycled, compared to the big plastic bottles that body wash and shampoo typically comes in.
The Greyhound bath bar is scented of Grapefruit and Bergamot and has a very light, pleasing scent. The bath bar contains Sea Buckthorn Oil making this bar rich in antioxidants. Sea Buckthorn oil is known for it’s anti-aging properties and promotes blood flow. We found that the bar lathers really well and my husband said it left his skin feeling very clean, not with any left behind residue that it seems his usual body wash may leave behind. He described it as almost like an exfoliating, but the bar does not appear to have any of the grit that we usually see in an exfoliating bar.
My husband was not sure how much he would like washing and conditioning his hair with a bar soap, but once he figured it out he absolutely loved it. The directions say you can lather in your hands underwater or lather in your hair underwater. For the first try, he lathered in his hands and found that it did not lather very well. The next day he actually rubbed it on his hair under the water and it lathered like crazy. The Strengthening Shampoo Bar combines health-promoting Hydrolyzed Rice Water Protein with conditioning-rich Argan Oil. The Mojito shampoo bar left his hair feeling light and clean and is lightly fragranced with notes of muddled mint, tropical pineapple, and citrus. The growth-stimulating conditioning bar offers a luxurious blend of Cocoa and Jojoba Oil with Rosemary Oil and Biotin. The formula promotes healthy hair growth while conditioning and repairing damage, again the scent is really light. My husband said the only drawback, which may not be a drawback to others, but he would like to see all of the fragrances a little stronger and not so muted.
