Wow, I had no idea this soap was so popular! I've been using it for several years as a facial soap. I first discovered it at an independent health store and tried it since I'd read good things about neem oil. When I first started using it, I had really bad adult acne, and it was the ONLY thing that actually helped clear my skin. I later found out that I had hormonal acne and went on birth control to prevent it, but that speaks even more highly to the power of this soap, as hormonal acne is the hardest kind of acne to control externally. I just can't say enough good things about this soap!

I will mention a couple words of caution, though: this soap can have a drying effect on facial skin, so using a daily face moisturizer is a must with this! Also, once when my sister was visitng I suggested she try my soap on her face, as she also has adult acne. Her face became extremely red- she looked like she had a severe sunburn- and it stayed that way for several hours. I think she had an allergic reaction, maybe to the neem oil. So this soap definitely isn't for everyone, but if it works for you, you are lucky!

Regarding the scent- it IS very strong and at first seems unappealing, but give it a few days- I got used to it quickly and now it smells clean to me rather than repulsive.

The bottom line- this soap is worth trying. Its super cheap with natural ingredients, and it does wonders for acne and other skin conditions.

SMELLY GOOD!

I was impressed by the ingredient list, it contains a lot of ingredients from cleansing skin to breast enlargement ! But it smells sooo horrible! The company definitely needs to get some new scents! Once they get a new scent I will be buying the every month! I use it for my face & body then I spritz on 3 perfumes and exotic great smelling oil. Kind bad that I need to cover up the smell but other then that since I was raised Mediterranean style (my family & I are from Podgorica, Montenegro) I'm kind of in love multi-functional beauty products, I would recommend this product with the advice of having to put on some lovely perfume after words .

but pleaseeeee people who make this soap, use a diff. natural fragrance.

        I have used this Sandalwood Tumeric soap for over ten years and recommended it to others. The last batch I bought recently smells terrible! Kind of like motor oil. Have had to throw it away. Am now on the hunt for a new sandalwood soap that smells as good as this used to.

          Comments about Auromere Ayurvedic Soap, Sandalwood-Turmeric, 2.75 oz:

          I absolutely LOVE this scent, but then I love sandlewood. If you are the type of person that does not like incense from India or that 'bee flower' sandlewood soap from China, OR if you usually wear chemical commercial perfumes or fragrances (as opposed to natural essential oil scents), then you 'might' not be used to this scent and probably wouldn't like it. But if you DO like all of the above (natural scents, Indian incense, bee flower soaps), then you will most likely enjoy the scent of this soap. We love it, and to us it smells fresh and clean, but not overpowering. It also makes the bathroom smell good too. Since it's made with natural oils and ingredients, I would recommend leaving it on a spikey type of soap dish, so it can air out and drain properly, otherwise, if you leave it in a regular soap dish, it may get gooey and melt. It REALLY WORKS WONDERS FOR THE SKIN! It has already cleared up a skin condition I had on my arms after only four days. and it doesn't seem to strip my skin of oils (unless you wash twice in a row with it, but you only need to wash once).

            Comments about Auromere Ayurvedic Soap, Sandalwood-Turmeric, 2.75 oz:

            I used to use this soap years ago for two reasons. The turmeric was great for the skin. I get bouts of acne on my back and this soap kept blemishes to a minimum. It was also one of the best smelling soaps i have ever used. It used to be very friable and wouldn't last all that long but the scent and effectiveness was excellent. Unfortunately it looks like Auromere changed their formula over the years - it's a harder soap now but has a horrible scent. I've tried three shipments in the last couple years which i've had to send back because of the smell. At first i thought it was just a batch of rancid soap. I've tried 2 more orders hoping that it was just my bad luck but finally gave up. Auromere has really screwed up what used to be a great soap. Thumbs down.

              Its pungent and subjective, some people like it, others don't.

              I like the sandalwood smell so I like it. I don't use it daily, but use it once in a while when I want to smell a little more interesting (about once a week). Its quite strong in the shower, but tails off and is more subtle once your dry and out and about. Still noticeable when you smell your skin, but not going to overpower anyone.

              I'm not sure about the Ayurvedic or health claims on this soap. It seems like an okay soap but the smell is horific ! It is really bad. I like sandalwood but this smells like bad medicine. I almost threw it away but the smell has disapated somewhat. I don't like perfumey or flowery soap either but this smells just awful. Other than that I guess it is okay, nothing special.

                The soap has a strong sandalwood smell, which is a big plus for me. The scent lasts a long time, too. The soap lathers well and can even be used in sensitive areas that sometimes react to scented soaps.

                Freshens and cleansens without drying the skin. A summer staple to prevent oily skin. Would highly recommend to those with sensitive skin.
