Good shampoo bar.
Lovely smell, easy to use and my hair feels nice after. Also it doesnt turn to mush so I think it will last quite a long time.
A fantastic skincare product, a start for your zero plastic skincare routine
I purchased this facial bar over a month ago for several reasons. 1: I wanted to reduce my plastic usage. I hadn't realised how many plastic bottles I was going through in the bathroom and I wanted a sustainable, non plastic product which I could easily use, and to suit my budget. 2: I wanted to purchase a face wash which was online, so a repeat purchase was easy. I've been neglecting my facial care for a while- moving from skin care brand regularly in order to get a better deal, not necessarily suiting my needs. 3: I wanted a facial product which wouldn't react to my sensitive skin. I have a mixture of combination and sensitive skin- it dries easily and spots appear mainly on my forehead. I saw this product and I thought for £4, it would be a good starting point in my zero plastic, skincare journey. On initial arrival, I was really pleased to see this little bar arrive in a cardboard box. This reassure me that this was a sustainable product, and that wastage would be minimal. The aroma can only be described as "an old bar of soap" smell- very distinctive and not very attractive. On first use, I wet my face and the bar and I made a lather. It didn't take long and I applied it to my face and started to use the generic, circular motion to cleanse. It wasn't abrasive, it felt very gentle and it was easy to control it. After rinsing and drying, my face felt clean: It wasn't greasy and it was noticeably more even, but it was slightly drying with my skin type. In addition, the noticeable smell from opening stuck to my skin, but overall, not too bad for a first cleanse. I have used this product for over a month now and I can definitely see a noticeable different with my pores on my chin and cheeks: they have reduced in size! Less spots have been appearing, my skin is more balanced and it has benefited from the natural ingredients. The bar didn't go mushy, much like a bar of soap would, and it dried very well (even when it was covered in water, it was always dry by the next morning). In addition, I have been using this twice every day and it has barely reduced in size- I don't know how long this would last but it is definitely longer than a typical 500ml face wash bottle. Also, the overpowering smell fades away with more use and it actually have a very pleased aroma now! The only downside which I can really admit is that it really stung when it got in my eyes! This was only a problem when I tried to remove my mascara, but I no longer attempt it. Overall I am really impressed with this product as I can see a fantastic difference with my face. This will be a brilliant base to my skin care routine, and I have already started to add some more products in (serum, toner, moisturizer) to get healthier and even skin. Advice when using: invest in a portable soap dish. It allowed me to pack the soap bar away, take it in my toiletries bag, and avoided the chance that someone else might use it. These can be found in Poundland, or online. 🙂

Good for sensitive and oily skin
Arrived very quickly. Been looking for an affordable face cleanser bar for a while this seems to tick all the boxes. Works just like normal soap. Bit drying but this is perfect for me as I have oily skin. Just waiting to see if it causes me to break out fingers crossed. UPDATE: This has worked perfectly no break outs!

Very Pleasantly Surprised
I will not be throwing away (or pretend recycling) one plastic shampoo bottle a month for the rest of my life. That was the goal, and this is my first foray into "shampoo bars" - I am an instant convert. I should mention I am an ex rugby playing "bloke" with no more interest in hair products than veganism (please don't troll, it's a joke), but this bar lathers amazingly and leaves my hair in a perfect state for me, requiring no further "products" and ready to go and get dirty again. Cannot comment on those whose hair it doesn't suit; mine is blond and pretty fine and this works very well. Onto finding planet-friendly coffee pods, oh well, one step at a time..........
Full disclosure: i wash my hair only once a week so it's a bit of an event and i usually take my sweet time about it. My hair is pretty thick, its never been coloured, it has heat applied to it only after it gets washed and so it's generally pretty good condition. So i appreciate that results for others could be quite different from mine. So first use- the bar smells great, Great lather, just like shampoo which i wasn't expecting - i cut a wee slice off the end of the bar which means the whole bar isn't hanging out in the shower getting gunky and it makes it easier to work into your hair. As soon as the shampoo was rinsed (i always shampoo twice) ... my hair felt that funny, almost waxy way, the way your skin feels if you use a bar soap? It wasn't very nice at all. But I popped it in a towel and left it in there for about half an hour as i usually do and then about a 15 minute air dry before I use the hairdryer. Amazingly the drier it got, the less wierd and waxy it felt. It became beautifully soft, like , it's never felt so soft. Root to tip. And that's just the shampoo on its own, no conditioner or any other product. So very overall very pleased! I've now used it twice with the same results. Will definitely be buying it again, though i think it'll be a while before i run out.

Takes a bit of time
This is a great product. I wash my hair once a week and it gets my very long, very thick, colour treated barnet super-squeaky clean. I really can not recommend it enough. For all those who are saying it doesn't work, you really do need to give time for your hair to adjust to cutting out soap, lathering agents and silcone derivatives. This can take months, depending on your hair - I reckon it took me at least 6 - so you can't expect to have immediate results. My whole family uses it to great effect and we have a range of long, short, thin, thick, curly and straight. Using shampoo with fewer harmful chemicals in is worth the time, effort and perseverance as I have zero split ends and very shiny hair (as well as knowing I'm putting less harmful rubbish back into the environment).

I've been trying different shampoo bars for ages and non have agreed with my hair so I gave up. Then I saw that Garnier had brought out this shampoo bar that's exactly the same as the liquid one I used. I wasn't let down- it's left my hair feeling super soft and I'm really happy that I can ditch the plastic shampoo bottle once and for all!
I'm reviewing this oat bar and the honey bar
Ok, so i thought I'd give a proper review now having used the honey bar (which i bought in a shop) and the oat bar. I have fine (not sparce or thick), loose, curly prone to the frizzies in damp, or left to dry naturally. It's also a fair amount of grey with highlights. I blow dry it a bit straighter after drying it off partly first, to a soft, long-layered bob shape. I only spray it lightly with an argan oil blow dry spray before drying. I also have very reactive skin, highly sensitive. Both bars lather up fast and lusciouly. Both smell lovely. Both kept my hair cleaner for longer - more so the honey bar on my hair, but that may be due to causing it to be bouncier. The bars stay firm, and dry quite quickly after use, which i just put on top of their boxes to dry. Results: The honey bar makes my hair much stronger, though soft, with more body and bounce than usual, and incredibly shiny. Very easy and quick to blow dry, smoothing out easilly and holding its shape. It adds some weight into my fine hair, but not at all flat to my scalp. It bounces more. I love it. The style kept in far longer, in fact, I didn't have to quickly go over it with the dryer the following mornings. And looks and feels really nice. Smells nicer for longer. The first time i used it, i did have a bit of an itching on my scalp now and then, but i do have highly reactive, over-sensitive skin. The following use i rarely had a very slight itch, so probably my skin adapted. I did need conditioner, but i do normally, and want to. The oat bar made my hair extremely soft - like candy floss, less shiny, flat to my head, took much longer to blow dry, without much bounce, if any. And though it stayed cleaner for longer than with normal shampoos, it looked quite a mess. Couldn't get it to hold a shape, being so, so soft and flat. It was quite a job to blow dry. If felt horrible the days following. It was annoying being over soft like feathers tickling my nose and fly-away. The oat bar is super softening, so conditioner might not be needed, and certainly not on virgin hair. It would be great for children and for people who like flat to the scalp hair. No itching at all. It does shine, but nothing like the honey bar. I think people with course or a lot of hair, esp if tinted, may find this to cause hair to feel stuck together. The softening of the oat stays in the hair a bit even after using a different shampoo, so i had to wash my hair more times to try and remove it. If you have dandruff, eczema, and the like, i think this oat shampoo will be very suitable. I'm going to try it on the dogs next shower. I use a lush shaampoo bar on them, usually. They are short-haired with sensitive skin. My son has super short curly hair, so i think he'll like it for softening and due to having eczema now and then. So, it's the honey bar for my hair type. My hair looks lovely with it. Full of life, shiny, bouncy, easy to style, stronger and fulller, yet light. The oat bar would be great for people on holidays and camping, because it's gentle and very softening, so no need for conditioner, unless you have colour-treated hair. That's my findings, for what its worth. Hope it helps someone choose the right one between these two bars. Ps. Quick update: i put 4 stars for the oat bar on my hair, but i give 5 stars for the honey bar on my hair. However, I've now used the oat bar on the dogs and their fur is super soft and super shiny on their mainly black, short hair, with no itches after. They feel like puppy fur, and they only had one shampoo each (they are showered monthly). So I've changed my stars from 4 to 5.

An awesome shampoo bar
OK, so, it comes with 0 plastic in a nice recyclable cardboard box. It smells gorgeous. I have used shampoo bars for a long while now and would never recommend rubbing the bar onto your hair. Lather in your hands and transfer the lather to your hair. It's a lovely lather and leaves your hair feeling silky smooth. I still followed with my usual apple cider vinegar rinse, but not sure if I needed it. My hair brushed out with almost 0 knots, dried lovely and feels light and soft. Would definitely recommend if you're wanting to try to switch to bars. It's a softer bar than my usual local made shampoo bar, so I can't see this lasting long. But keep it on a draining soap dish, nice and dry when not in use and it could last a while. Either way, if you like brands you recognise, this is a lovely price to try a shampoo bar, and will not break the bank. It also doesn't contain the nasties that the a popular high street bath products store does (don't waste your money on those, they'll wreck your hair).
best shampoo soap bar: Buying Guide
When looking for a good shampoo bar, make sure it contains ingredients that will be good for your hair. Some shampoo bars contain ingredients that can damage your hair, such as beeswax. A good shampoo bar should be made from ingredients that are gentle on your hair and scalp, but still effective. Listed below are some examples of shampoo bars that are a great alternative to traditional shampoo. If you are looking for a shampoo bar for your hair, here are some tips to help you find the perfect one:
The first thing to remember when looking for a shampoo bar is the ingredients. You should look for products that are made from oils and vegetable butters. Sodium hydroxide is the biggest giveaway. Soaps containing sodium hydroxide are typically hard and smooth. Also, they will list water as an ingredient. While some people love using shampoo bars for their hair, others find them uncomfortable and prefer to use liquid shampoo. Whatever you choose, try to avoid buying bars with sodium hydroxide.
When choosing a shampoo bar, keep in mind that there are some pros and cons to using it. A shampoo bar will last longer than its liquid counterpart. It will also cost you less than a bottle of shampoo. Some people prefer to apply liquid shampoo, while others prefer to use a shampoo bar. However, be aware that soap bars can expire faster than liquid soaps. Soap as shampoo is a great alternative to regular shampoo.
The first thing to know about shampoo bars is that you can use them in the bath. They are just like any other type of soap. You should wet your hair before using the bar. Then, apply the foam to your hair and then rinse thoroughly. After that, you should apply another layer of shampoo. This will help you to get rid of all the excess dirt. When using a shampoo bar, make sure to rinse it properly.
When switching from liquid to bar shampoo, you will need to adjust your hair type. The best combination of soap bars and hard water will cause soap scum to form. This buildup can cause a sticky feeling on the scalp. If you have soft hair, you can use a shampoo bar as a replacement. A soap bar will last longer than a liquid, so it’s a good option for people with naturally curly or textured hair.
Shampoo soap bars should not be used as a substitute for shampoo. Using a bar is not a substitute for using shampoo. Choosing a shampoo bar that contains more water than the recommended amount will increase your hair’s maintenance and care. But the most important thing is that you use the shampoo bar with your hair and not the conditioner. After you wash your hair with a shampoo, you should rinse it with apple cider vinegar for a more natural shine.
