I got this as a prize from ... and I am glad I got a chance to try it because the price was definitely a deterrent for me. I have the peppermint scent which I use in my kitchen to wash my hands. Since dish soaps tend to dry my hands, this soap solved my problem! It leaves my hands squeaky clean and with a wonderful scent that is appropriate for the kitchen too! I did not notice it taking longer to wash out though. I love that it lathers well and has the right consistency. Not too thick or..
Lot of allergies in my house, and many sensitivities with smells so this is perfect. Gets our hands clean and leaves no smell. First time I used it I was surprised it was brown, but it lathered up quite nicely and now the whole family uses it.
