This soap was part of a gift selection I received for Christmas from my mum. The soap is from L'Occitane and is supposed to be for men but the fragrance is just so good and the soap so soft it is a shame to keep it just for my husband.
The soap is made from 100% plant based ingredients blended with pepper and lavender oils. The blurb from L'Occitane is that the soap is supposed to lend itself to reducing oiliness and to leave the skin feeling soft and supple and I would agree that this is the case.
This soap has been used by both me and my husband in both the shower and the bath and has coped well in both environments giving a great lather. It is tingly with a lovely wake up buzz the pepper is the main scent that comes to the fore when lathering this soap up to use and the pepper tones are definitely the stronger of the two scents. Tantalisingly the lather foams between your hands and with a few seconds it is whipped nicely into delicious creamy foam. The washing off process is nice and easy and though it foams up nicely it also washes out well without any soapy residue being left. Touchable and soft are the words that come to mind to describe how the soap leaves my skin both across the body and the hands. You are left with a lingering scent of pepper on the skin a few hours before fading totally. The soap itself doesn't appear to dry out too much and the small bar lasts well in our case about 6-8 weeks of being used in the shower.
Much as I love this soap due to its lovely warm scent and how soft it leaves the skin it is not a cheap item at £4.50 is probably 2 to 3 times more expensive than most soaps you would buy in the supermarket but for a little bit of a treat it is great item from L'Occitane and would make a lovely stocking filler gift for someone. Due to the cost I am giving this item 4 stars but if you have the cash to splash would give it a go for its creamy warm lather and scent.
