Finnish Excellence! - I really love this range of tar products. I have friends in Finland and first tried tar shampoo when visiting them- I was won over by the delicious, powerful scent, such a perfect complement to the piney smell of the sauna. Back in the UK I have tried various other brands and found them chemically and fake. Vaasa Old Soap Company, however, is the real Finnish thing, and I'm delighted to have found a quality supplier to the UK.

I hang this soap in the shower and use it with a body brush instead of shower gel. I also use it on my face and find it good for my 'challenging' skin. Whilst in the shower, the tar scent is quite strong so do be prepared for that- personally I love this as it brings back lovely memories of Finland and makes me feel invigorated. However, the scent only lingers on me a tiny bit- I actually wouldn't mind if it lingered more though. The soap lasts a good long time and it stays on the rope right til the end, which is great.

If you like the outdoors and enjoy a natural approach, or you love campfires and saunas, or you want to experiment with the alleged antiseptic properties of tar, or you just fancy trying something new - give this a go!

Good quality Pinetar soap - A good strong burnt pine smell, on a convenient rope, I have tried other brands but have found Vaasa Old Soap Company pine tar soap to be the best quality for a product that makes you feel really clean from the first moment of use. - C Birchall

Absolutely fantastic. My favourite soap yet. - I love this stuff. It looks really nice... like a little pine cone or egg hanging in the shower. If I close my eyes I could be standing by a camp-fire deep in a woodland somewhere in Finland... or relaxing in a secluded smoke-sauna cabin. This is one of the stronger smelling brands I have come across, but its woodsmoke aroma to me is absolutely divine, so in my opinion, it also functions as a bathroom air freshener when not in use.

I have been using Pine Tar Soap in general for a while. I also use some other brands (one made in Britain and one made in the USA). All are very similar, however this Finnish soap is my favourite so far. My skin is quite sensitive and sometimes, depending on weather and work, can occasionally suffer the odd bout of things like eczema, infections, etc. Like the other pine-tar soaps, this soap feels lovely on the skin. It feels really mild, smooth and creamy. It cleans well enough to prevent and greasiness, spots and infections, but doesn't dry my skin. It is also mild enough to wash my hair in. For this use, I find the Grandpa's brand the best, although I wash my hair with the other brands of Pine Tar soap too, and so far I have found them all suitable for this. I use a shaving brush and traditional shaving soap, but I've also used this one to shave with and it did the job as well as my shave soap. When I used this on my hair, I get a lot more volume than with conventional shampoo. My scalp was never itchy either. As a result, I can heartily recommend this as an "all in one", although your mileage may vary and you might be better off with separate shampoo/soap/shaving soap.

As with other Pine Tar Soaps I've tried, it soothed pretty-much any problem I had with my skin, and stopped its return. A nice side effect I also noticed with the other brands, is that I'm sure I get bitten less by insects when I have used this and spend time in the woods. I find the smell very nice, infact I absolutely love it, although some people might not like the smell of the actual bar itself. Like most brands of this type of soap, the smell can vary a bit between bars - sometimes it's more tarry and sometimes (like this one), it smells more like a woodland camp-fire, which is simply heavenly. Fortunately it's not overpowering, so once you've used it people can't really smell it on you. Speaking of smell, a final side effect is that I noticed my arm pits were always still fresh at the end of a long hard day when I'd showered with this. Again, that's just this soap's effect on me, your mileage may vary - but all I can say is that it appears to be a fantastic cure-all for me...
