    My favorite citrus soap ever

    Finding a good soap bar isn't that simple; you gotta spend a lot of money on trials. Stop here! This brand is fantastic - the products are top quality, handmade in England, and shipped directly to your door in the States. I like to buy in bundles to save on shipping. Highly recommended!

    Like the scrub!

    You’ll get the perfect exfoliation from the poppy seeds and the fruit bits inside. The fragrance and the lather quality is great, probably the best soap I’ve ever bought. Very well made bar! I will buy more! Thanks, Tom

    Highly recommended!!

    It smells fantastic and natural, much different from synthetic fragrances in other soaps!! Very conditioning to my skin!

    Love it

    What a delightful soap! I agree with the previous comments, it smells amazing!

    The citrus scent lasts until the very last bit!

    I've been using Chalke Valley soap bars for over two years now, and I've had the pleasure of experiencing each scent one by one. Without a doubt, my absolute favorite is the Zesty Scrub. It's not just because I have a soft spot for citrus, but the blend of lemongrass, grapefruit, and lemon essential oils in this soap is truly exceptional.

    Initially, the scent might not seem strong, but what I adore is how, from the very first use and with every shower, this bar gradually releases its essential oils, giving my skin and bathroom a delightful zesty aroma every time. What's impressive is that the fragrance remains consistent, if not stronger, right until the last bit. I couldn't be happier with this luxurious handmade brand. It's a small treat that brings a touch of luxury to my daily routine.
