First off, I love the packaging! The bar is wrapped without any excess tape or glue residue which means I am absolutely using the wrapper in an art project. The bars itself seem lovely. I've started out with the turmeric bar - it smells subtle, lathers easily without feeling synthetic, its got some granules which feels gentle against the skin & it has left my skin feeling soft & hydrated. Also an important part, it hasn't left any soap scum residue on my marble floor. Nor is the bar melting away quickly with use. Its retained its solidity. I'm looking forward to using the other three & then repurchasing this lot! Thanks for a fabulous set of soaps!
