Once I was introduced to the body butter from The Body Shop, I became a fan of the brand. Not only is the products good, the brand uses natural ingredients and they try to make a difference in the world.
I took this picture from my Instagram. I already reviewed The Body Shop Hand Protector in Hemp on the right. For this post, I will review the product on the left.

Thoughts: When I received this product, I was extremely excited to try it. To be honest, the rope sold me.
Now for my overall opinion... First of all, it has a slight scent. It's not that strong. I hardly even notice. I'm starting to think this is how hemp is supposed to smell. It smells exactly like The Body Shop Hand Protector in Hemp. Secondly, I love the rope. It makes it easy to hang in the shower than put it in a soap dish. Whenever I put soap in the soap dish, I noticed chunks of soap builds up in the soap dish. I don't have to worry about that since it doesn't touch anything while it's hanging. It's also sanitary-free since I don't have to put it back in the wet soap dish. Third, I love that the soap actually lathers and it doesn't take that much effort. I have tried soap that doesn't lather and it feels like I'm washing with lotion. I'm not a fan of that type of soap solid or liquid. I want the lather and not that lotion-feel. It could be mental but it makes me feel cleaner when I could feel the lather. As soon as I grab the soap with my wet hands, I could feel the slight lather and then it builds up. I don't need that much to wash my body. A little goes a long ways with this soap. With that said and lastly, it doesn't dry out my skin. I don't feel the tightness, as well as, see dry flaky skin. I wouldn't say my skin is hydrated since I still apply lotion right after my showers. Basically, it's just gentle and not harsh on the skin. For that reason, it's good for every skin type including sensitive. With that said, I love how universal the soap is. It'll be great for guys as well since the smell isn't so feminine.
