I love it. Yes the smell takes a little getting used to. It reminds me of the smell of old paint cans when you take the lid off and the oil has separated to the top. Well the bar is made of old dried olive oil. But after rinsing off, I can't smell any trace of it, and my husband hasn't complained...which I think is the true test. I like that I've had the bar for about a month already and barely looks used. Now, the best part, and where I think this soap is like gold, is how wonderfully it works on hair! I skeptically shampooed with it, and it does leave hair squeaky clean, but I still use my same conditioner. Then I blow dry and style my hair as usual. It's like the best hair day ever! My hair feels clean, but not stripped down. I don't know how to explain it, but its the greatest thing for your hair. I have thin hair and use volumizing shampoo usually. This beats my old shampoo hands down. Now I feel like I'm in one of those hair shampoo commercials with the silky bouncy hair. Love it!
I've also found on several websites that there are only four basic ingredients to this soap. Olive oil, bay laurel oil, sodium hydroxide, and water. Give or take a couple other 'natural' ingredients. But my package says that the ingredients are: sodium oleate, sodium linoleate, sodium palmitate, aqua, sodium linolenate, olea europaea oil unsaponifiables, sodium laurate, sodium myristate, sodium arachidate, and sodium hydroxide. I don't know if all of these ingredients are meant to be part of Aleppo soap. I'm pretty certain that sodium palmitate is derived from palm oil, and that kind of oil should not be in this soap in my opinion. I tried looking up some of the other ingredients that are said to be in my soap, but I didn't have much luck.
The main reason I bought this soap was to see if it will help my acne prone skin, especially the acne on my back and chest. Now I am scared that it may end up irritating my skin, which has not been clear in years. I was relieved to see a stamp on the soap, but I can't make out any of the letters on it, which makes me a little suspicious.
I washed my face with it once already. It seems drier than before I had used it, and I don't know if that is normal. The number of ingredients freaks me out.
Maybe I made a bad judgment by purchasing this soap. I'd love it if someone would prove me wrong.
I have been using this product approximately once a day for the past 3 weeks. At first, I was worried it might be stripping my skin because it literally gives you a 'squeaky clean' feeling after use. Needless to say, my worries were in vain. I always moisturize with a light cream after washing, but even before I put it on, my face does not feel overly dry. My skin seems much softer with incredibly even tone. This product has also done wonders for clearing up those "sniper pimples" that tend to pop up on my face from time to time. I'm a little amazed, honestly.
For those who want to know what ingredients are on the label, I can tell you that my label looks identical to the one pictured. The ingredients are listed as follows, in order: sodium oleate, sodium linoleate, sodium palmitate, aqua, sodium linolenate, olea europaea oil, unsaponifiables, sodium laurate, sodium myristate, sodium arachidate, sodium hydroxide, origine vegetale. Clearly this list is in French, as is most of the label. I don't know if this ingredient list means it's 'true' aleppo soap or not. I can only tell you that I have been really impressed by how nicely this product has worked on my skin.
I will agree that the price is a little high. I wish it were a few dollars cheaper like its aleppo competitors. That being said, I have spent more on other face cleaners so I can't complain too much. I will definitely be buying it again.
