I started using this soap recently and it's really nice. It's very smooth and has a 'warm' scent which is pleasant but not spectacularly so. It certainly doesn't smell the same as other Palmers products I've tried but then in a solid-soap bar that is not surprising. In a soft-water area, such as where I live, it works up a lot of lather and so not as much is needed and I would expect it to last quite a long time. It's also a rather nice shape. The colour of the soap is a pale brown.
I've used Palmers products before (and hope to review one of their shampoos, soon) and my skin is very dry at the moment so I thought this soap would be the right thing to try. So far, so good. However, I didn't know the ingredients before I purchased it and I wish it was a legal necessity to include them with the other product information. So, to help others make a more informed choice, here are the ingredients in the order given on the box: Sodium Tallowate, Sodium Cocoate, Water (Aqua), Glycerin, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Tocopheryl Acetate, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Pentasodium Penetate,Tetrasodium Etidronate, Iron Oxide (CI 77489), Allantoin, Fragrance (Parfum), Benzyl Alcohol, Chromium Hydroxide Green (CI 77289).
They don't say if the Sodium Tallowate is animal or vegetable derived. It doesn't bother me either way, but I should imagine a Vegan would want to email the company and ask, before buying.
I'll probably buy it again, and probably from Amazon rather than the pharmacy site from which I purchased it, as it's slightly cheaper here.
