After having a child my scalp has gone to the pack, BUT this shampoo is just, ugh, a life saver! Very soft on the scalp yet it does do the job and removes excess buildup without being too harsh. It's a hard bar so feels like it's going to have a long life, all the more so if you dry them out between usage! I've used it twice already and am very happy with it! Will be purchasing again!
Amazing! I've tried a few bars and this for me takes the cake!!! The longer you leave it the softer your hair gets, unlike some bars that moisture straight away this one takes it time. I'm picking its going to last longer as well because of the hardness you don't seem to use as much, if that makes sense?. Anyways, I'm gonna keep getting this stuff cause daym.
Yay, my favourite is back in stock! A magic combination of ingredients. Evokes different happy memories every time. Whether it’s taking me back to camping holidays in the Marlborough Sounds, or native bush walks of Aotearoa. Ever so gently exfoliating too. Perfect.
Indescribably exquisite fragrance. Woody scents are my thing. Have to admit my soap is still in a drawer permeating clothes with scent. I’m holding off using it until my equally good Concrete Jungle is used up.
Love this product, it's the perfect shape and very moisturizing for my hands.
I never though of myself as a soap fanatic though I do appreciate a nice scent. Then Matariki Arising arrived in my bathroom. I find myself walking in there just to sniff it. I’m a woody, spicy smell person and so many soaps are too flowery for me. This is just perfect. I LOVE it. I want to wash with it five times a day.
Love all the flavours and the soap is great quality
The smell of this bar is amazing. And it really gets absorbed into skin very fast. My skin is quite dry at the moment and this bar does a great job of moisturing. Will definitely buy more.
This really works well for me. I live alone & wash up by hand 99.9% of the time. This soap cuts grease - no odour - no polutant chemicals. And a really nice china bowl. Congratulations to Bar of Hope for such an excellent product. Tony.
My girlfriend has a love of strong middle eastern style scents which are rare and hard to come by in New Zealand, and for Christmas I decided to comission a set of soaps tailored to her tastes.
Petra took my suggestions and created an excellent set of soaps with an intense and long lasting scent - she also integrated Liz's favorite colors and personalized each bar with her name. Couldn't ask for more!
This is one special experience! The silkiness and perfume stays constant throughout use. Love it!
Being aware of climate change and always looking for a simple way to take action, this dishwashing soap is perfect for me. It comes in a fancy reusable cup and lasts for a long time, smells fresh and removes food from used dishes easily. It also avoids those sneaky, nasty microplastics that litters our oceans. Awesome work, Bar of Hope-Team!!!
CLEAN FUN pack (200g+)
I've purchased this pack for my sis as a Christmas/NY's gift and she absolutely loved it!! The handcrafted wrapping was so beautiful (and eco-friendly zero-waste, which is important to my sis), the soaps smell so exquisitely and when she tried them, I got the highest praise for the best gift ever! Her little boys loved the pink-lemonade one and my sis herself fell in love with the concrete jungle and the purple reign (my personal favourite!). Big red is still left to try :)
I am not new to organic natural soaps - since I have a very sensitive skin I dumped using shower gels ages ago and have been trying different natural soaps for over a decade now. And Bars of Hope are an absolute treasure and a rare find!!! With these soaps you can forget about compromises (like usually good natural organic soaps lack smell, or are not foamy enough) - BOH are simply THE BEST!!! And purple reign is my most favourite one of all - I love the smooth texture of the foam it gives, and the unbeatable sensation on the skin after using it - my skin just loooves this soap and I could forget about the need to use body lotion after shower - my skin feels awesome after this soap as is!!
I have really noticed that my regular showers have turned into an indulgent ritual that I look forward to! =) Try it for yourself and you'll see what am I talking about ;)
In addition to creating skin-loving waste-reducing products, BAR OF HOPE also strives to help those less fortunate by donating a bar of soap to The Salvation Army for every sale of a Pink Lemon-AID.
