Review: Softsoap Juicy Pomegranate & Mango Infusions Bar Soap

Softsoap Juicy Pomegranate & Mango Infusions Bar Soap
(retail: $3.99, 3.9 oz)

Ever since I posted about these new Softsoap bar soaps back in the beginning of August, I've been anxious to try one. I was recently contacted by Softsoap and sent this soap for review, so I'd love to share my thoughts with you.

From Softsoap:

The Softsoap bar soap line (launched August 2011) - Locks in moisture and was specially created to excite your senses. The line will be available in three delicious fragrances- Juicy Pomegranate & Mango Infusions, Coconut Scrub and Sweet Honeysuckle & Orange Peel. 

I love the Softsoap body wash in Juicy Pomegranate & Mango, which is actually sitting in my shower right now. I'm happy I have both, because I can tell you how similar the fragrance of the bar soap is to the body wash.

 Pink bar soap in my shower makes me happy.

I was pleasantly surprised, when I opened the box, to find that this soap is actually pink! For some reason, I had assumed that this was going to be a red glycerin soap. Also, it's got tiny bits of, I'm guessing pomegranate, in the soap itself:

As for the fragrance, it is similar to the body wash but, due to it being a bar soap, it is a bit different. I can detect the "bar soap base" in this product, but combined with the fragrance of pomegrante and mango, I find it very pleasing. It has a hint of "clean" to it that the body wash does not possess.

The fragrance is strong, but not knock-your-socks-off strong. I had the box sitting on my desk, opened, for a few days before I used it, and I loved that my entire desk area smelled of pomegrante and mango.

This soap provides me with a nice, rich, creamy lather (as opposed to a thinner, more airy lather). My favorite way to use bar soap is to rub it into my (wet) bath pouf until I get a nice lather going. I find that I can cleanse my entire body with the lather this soap provides without having to "re-suds" my bath pouf.

My skin is left with a squeaky-clean feel after using this soap, but I don't find it excessively drying. I don't think I could skip my usual dose of body lotion after using this soap, but I don't find that I need more body lotion than usual after I use this product.

FINAL VERDICT: If you're already a fan of the body wash by the same name, and you like bar soaps, you might want to give this one a whirl. I think it's a nice new addition to the Softsoap line, and I enjoy the touch of "clean" in the fragrance of this product. Plus, you just can't beat a pink bar soap in your shower, right?

Have you tried any of the new Softsoap bar soaps yet? How do you like them? I can't wait to try the Sweet Honeysuckle and Orange Peel bar soap next, since that's my favorite Softsoap fragrance of all time.
