Let me start off by saying that this soap is fantastic (as long as you can tolerate the smell). It does a great job at keeping your skin hydrated, even during the winter months. It is worth noting that the 4.25 oz bar is the original formula from 1878 which contains sodium tallowate (animal fat) as its base. Although I do not consider this a problem, some users may prefer a vegetable based alternative. If so, go with the 3.25 bar. It contains all of the same ingredients as the 4.25 oz bar, minus the animal fat.

Not good for some faces

This has coconut oil in it and broke me out with cysts terribly. I should have known better. Coconut oil always has this affect on my face. Otherwise, I'd say it's an ok soap.
A very good soap, but the smell is a little overpowering.

Very good for my husbands dry and itchy skin, but The smell of bonfire and tar is not the best smell, and it has a really strong smell!!!

Since I can't find my previous tar shampoo anywhere, I've been searching for another good product. So, after reading other reviews, I decided to give this soap bar a try. I expected better. This "original wonder soap" did not work any wonders for me. It did not help with skin problems, and I did not like how my hair felt after washing them with this soap. Smell is not bad for product that contains tar (reminds the smell of fireplace), but it is quite noticeable. So - great that it helped for so many people, but - unfortunately - not for me.

Not strong enough for very oily skin

quite a good one for slightly oily skin in dry weather. but if u want to cleanse oily parts of your skin, this one is not the choice.
