Do any of you use pine tar soap or black soap? I hear they are supposed to have a lot of beauty benefits, but I don't know anyone who uses them.

If you use these soaps, what has been your experience with them? Also, please recommend good brands. Thanks.

I tried:
Dr. Woods Products

The black soap with shea butter in it. I had it in winter for dry skin. I really liked it a lot but I had to order it online. I should look for it in my area. It has an nice old fashion masculine scent to it. I could also use it for shaving which is why I am picking it up again. I didn't have shave bumps really at all when I used that as my shave soap. I had not tried it on my hair.

Years ago, when you could buy it pretty much anywhere, my DH used pine tar shampoo. He loved it. So did I.

Opsimathia,
Thanks for the link to Dr. Woods products. The liquid black soap looks like it's a lot easier to use than the big solid chunks that are usually sold.

It's a very masculine smell. (To me, anyway.) He's the only guy I've known who used it so I always associated the smell to just him. There's nothing flowery about it. It's an outdoorsy smell and he's an outdoorsy guy.
