To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is my favorite hand soap, it was sold out everywhere (along with all other soaps). I was price gouged heavily by paying 20 dollars for 6. In normal times this item sells for about 98 cents per bottle. Shame on Amazon. I still gave 5 stars because the soap itself is excellent.
Had allergic reaction to this Softsoap, which says made in Canada. The formula is different from the original available at Costco. Thought I’d washed too many time yesterday, when my hands were red, with micro cuts at the end of day. Testing today on rested skin and untouched skin resulted in Needle-like sensation, followed by red skin on both areas. Have not had such a bad reaction with Softsoap before.
The pump mechanisms are terrible. Usually at least one of the pump handles is broken with each order. If the pump handles are not visibly broken, there is a reasonably high likelihood that at least one of the pump mechanisms in the package simply does not function - you take a new bottle of soap out to wash your hands and spin the pump top in circles for what seems like hours but but the pump lever thing never pops up from the lock position to be able to actually pump out the soap. I wish that all Amazon products had two versions: version one the absolutest cheapest possible low quality version at the lowest possible price, and version two is the same thing but you pay maybe 5%-10% more for something that actually works properly and has some reasonable degree of reliability.
The pump tops don’t open. On any of them. Never had any issues opening a pump soap before but I’ll be damned if I could get even one of these to open. Ended up buying a pump soap holder and just pouring it in that one. The soap itself is fine but I bought pump bottles because I figured that was a done deal. Kind of annoying to them have to go order a separate pump simply bc these won’t work. I’d have just ordered a big refill if I’d wanted to do all that from the start. Will not purchase again.
This Softsoap Aloe Vera has always been my favorite liquid soap, and still is. Unfortunately, all 6 pumps that I purchased in this case were defective. The tops would not open no matter how many times you twist them. These bottles say "Made in Mexico" on them, which is different from what I've bought in the past when they had "US" in the lot # instead of "MX." So apparently the defective ones were made in Mexico while the ones that work fine are made in the USA. I am going to contact the manufacturer about this issue, and unfortunately I am hesitant to buy this 6-pack again because some other reviewers on here have mentioned having the same problem.
We have used Softsoap Milk and Honey for many years. We purchased this again after being unable to find it after months of being out of stock and were horribly disappointed to discover that it is no longer the same product. I'm extremely sensitive to fragrances and this was one of the rare few products that worked for me. No longer! The first use resulted in a migraine and sneezing fit. The consistency of the product has also changed. I suspect that Softsoap modified the formula due to some ingredients having world wide shortages.
This soap is clearly very diluted compare to most liquid hand soaps, including other SoftSoap products (like their scented and anti-bacterial lines). It's okay for just getting a little sweat off or after a relatively clean bathroom trip, but it doesn't cut it for anything even remotely sticky or greasy. I won't be buying this again, it's just too diluted.
If you have a bathroom that smells horrible and want to hide the scent, this is the perfect hand soap for you. It smells strong and chemically and is anything but natural. Your hands smell for hours after washing. If you like that type of thing, this is the soap for you. If you prefer a more natural scent, keep looking.
I like this soap, and have used it in the past. It was also a great price. Unfortunately, 4 out of 6 bottles were leaking. One bottle wasn't even screwed on tightly at all. 5 stars for the soap, but not worth it for the poor packaging/shipping. Very disappointed.
