I'm very lazy when it comes to many things. One of those things is looking after my soap. I don't have a drainage area for my soap, so I usually buy the soaps in cardboard boxes so I can store them in the box between washes. But as a large, hairy male, I tend to have a few issues with odour; mainly that I seem to gain immunity to deodorant's before it runs out, so I generally have to swap brands frequently to keep myself smelling fresh. So I was interested to try a handcrafted soap to see how it fared.

The soap itself was a good size. At 7.25cm x 9.5cm x 2.5cm, the block is nearly double the volume of the average mass produced soap, though it is wider and flatter, giving it a larger surface area to volume ratio. As I mentioned earlier I tend to just leave my soap in the box, as I don't have a proper place with drainage to put it. Unfortunately, it doesn't fit in the previous box I was using, so instead, I left it in the wrap that it originally came in. This was a bad decision, as after two washes the wrap would become stuck to the soap and rip all over the place. Not ideal. So I just left it sitting out as is. Issue no, 2 that I then had was that I live with 6+ other people, and when they use the shower, they clearly don't care where the showerhead has aimed. I ended up losing 75% of my soap in 3 days. And that is ignoring the fact that I use the soap directly on the body.

So three important things to definitely do (which are also mentioned on their website):
1. Keep the soap somewhere with drainage
2. Keep the soap out of direct water
3. It's best not to use it directly on the skin (especially if you are hairy like me)

All of these factors led to my soap lasting nowhere near as long as it should have lasted. Almost running out of soap in just over a week. But judging by the rate that I was going through the soap before the flatmates were spraying it with water, I would estimate the bar would last a good 3 weeks, even with me using it directly on my body.

But on to the soap itself. Called Herbs Tie, there is a very light scent to the soap itself, but during the wash, there are no obvious scents made when lathering up. As far as feeling and smelling clean afterwards, it lasted maybe an hour or so less than my usual mass-produced soaps. Which is pretty reasonable, but as a man that sweats a lot, it's safe to say I would be better off with a scented soap to cover myself for a little bit longer.

Overall, it is a good soap if you have a proper place to store it, but the unscented option is not the best option for me and my job in manual labour.
