This is a good soap with a warm scent. It feels kind of textured as if it had beads for scrubbing. Cleans very well and is just wonderful to use. Like most bar soaps, the life span is not very long. I suggest keeping it in a dry spot out of the shower, or grinding it up and making it a liquid soap. Just grind it to a powder and put it in a big pot of boiling water. Let it sit overnight, return in the morning and blend to smoothen it out after it gets thick. Boom, liquid soap. Will greatly increase it's lifespan.
