Top Customer Reviews
This is a hard-milled verbena (lemon scent) soap that rinses away cleanly and does not soften in the soap dish. As a result, a bar of it lasts longer than other soaps. And you come away feeling (and smelling) clean.
At 8.8 ounces (over half a pound) the bar is larger than the average bath/shower soap, which also helps it to last longer. If you'd prefer smaller bars, buy L`Occitane - Shea Butter Extra Gentle Soap Verbena (Set of 2)
Use it once and you're hooked.
From the Label:
"Pure vegetable soap: inspired by the original recipe from the master soap maker, L'Occitane has formulated this soap with an extra-gentle and vegetable base. Rich in softening and protective Shea Butter, this soap's foamy lather gently cleanses the skin, helping to preserve its natural moisture balance."
While searching the internet and viewing reviews on amazon.com, I came across, L'Occitane Savon Extra-Doux Verveine, (Verbena Soap, Extra Gentle), 8.8-Ounce Bar by L'Occitane.
I was curious to know why anyone would pay $10 for a bar of soap. I noticed that a number of people did though and gave the highest rating available to the product. As I thought about it, I compared it in price to other gifts like flowers, candy or a bottle of fine wine and realized that the price of this product is in line with other special gifts that we give to people just because we love them.
The paper wrapping, size and clean refreshing lemon fragrance were promising. My wife seemed genuinely surprised that I would order a French extra-gentle soap for her and appreciated the thought that I put into this unusual gift.
She has sensitive and sometimes dry skin and said that the ingredients are wonderful. She thinks that it is probably the Shea butter that makes this product so creamy, smooth and relaxing. The product has a lemon rather than a medicinal fragrance; however, it has an emollient quality to it too.
The hard milled look reminds me of that "made to last" soap my neighbors used to make in Oregon when I was a child, but lathers much better.
Although we have hard water in Springfield, Illinois, this herbaceous pure vegetable soap does not leave a film, but makes the skin feel soft and hydrated.
Lemon is one of my wife's favorite fragrances; however, she said she is anxious to learn what other ones are available.Read more ›

This a great product. Love the smell and the way it treats my
skin. Large bar lasts forever. Price a bit high to buy frequently.
I purchased the milk soap and the lavender soap. Both are great, but I deducted a star because it's impossible to tell the difference between them. Read morePublished 12 days ago by Roman Gitlarz
