Dr Bronner's Magic Liquid Soap: Rose (2 oz.)
I received this product with one of the beauty boxes that I was subscribed to a while ago now and I have now used up the product.
- Product description (from the Dr Bronner website)
"The Rose soap with its beautifully blended natural essential oils has an elegant and romantic traditional feel. All oils and essential oils are certified organic to the National Organic Standards Program. Packaged in 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles."
- About the product and ingredients
The bottle I have is the 2oz bottle which is just over 50ml. The bottle is clear so you can see how much product there is left although there is a sticker across the bottle with a lot (and I mean a lot) of information on it - in fairly tiny writing. The soap is liquid, it is made with mostly natural ingredients, the bottle is 100% biodegradable, the soap does not contain any foaming agents (such as sodium laureth sulphate) and the product is 'certified fair trade'.
Water, Organic Coconut Oil, Potassium Hydroxide, Organic Olive Oil, Natural Rose Fragrance, Organic Hemp Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Citric Acid, Tocopherol.
- Using the product and results
The first thing I notice about this product is the scent - it smells like Turkish delight! The scent is really nice and sweet which some people may not like but I love the rose/Turkish delight scent. Secondly, the consistency of this product is really thin and runny which I don't like too much as it can just run off my hands. The packaging means that it is fairly easy to control how much product is dispensed. The first use I have for this liquid soap is: a hand soap and it does work well as a hand soap although I find that this product can be a little bit drying on my skin. As a hand soap it works really well, it cleans my skin well and it foams/lathers fantastically even though it contains not foaming agents. The scent of this soap it really nice and sweet as it is being used and the soap itself feels gentle on the skin. The scent does transfer to my skin but it doesn't last on my skin for very long. The second use I have for this product is to clean my makeup brushes with and this is really the main use that I have for this product.
The liquid rose soap is fantastic at cleaning my (many) makeup brushes - from small dense brushes to larger, sparser brushes. The soap foams up well when it cleans the brushes and it seems to clean the makeup in the bristles quickly and easily. Rinsing out the brushes is fairly quick and easy but if the brushes are not rinsed out well enough then the soap and collect in the bristles - so rinse the brushes well before leaving to dry naturally. Overall, this product is really nice to use, it smells great, it works well as a hand soap and to clean my makeup brushes - it works just as well as my MAC brush cleaner! The only negative point against this product really is the fact that it is a bit drying on my skin and I have managed to go through the one bottle fairly quickly - although it is only a 50ml bottle.
- Price and availability
This product is made in the USA and it is an American company therefore it is not very widely available in the UK but it is available online from amazon.co.uk (prices range from £5 to £14) and some online chemists/health shops.
