      You have to smell this bar of soap Buying something without smelling it first is always a gamble and usually I end up disappointed. However with this soap it was everything I thought it would smell like and more. I’m obsessed with the smell. So much so that I wish soft services made a version of their other products like the carea lotion with the same scent as well.

      Gorgeously scented, perfectly scrubby. This is the perfect upgrade to an already perfect product. The scent is understated but distinct - fresh and optimistic, not too "tropical" in a treacly way. The qualities of the buffing bar are the same -- both creamy and gritty, leaving skin all over your body feeling perfectly slick and smooth, and conveying a truly freshly-scrubbed feeling. This is very giftable, very chic, and truly the part of my shower routine I MOST look forward to -- a subtle delight to the senses.
      I would recommend this product to: Almost all skin types - the exfoliation is effective but gentle, and the shea butter base is nourishing but not at all greasy.

      Nostalgic and fresh It smells nostalgic but also fresh! I love the original buffing bar and like that this scent doesn’t interfere with other scented items when I shower, it’s a really great complement to other products because it is not at all overpowering. Love it.

      The classic but even fresher... I love the classic buffing bar so much so it's refreshing too have this amazing scent to make my shower even better! It makes me feel invigorated but calm, a great way to start the day. The fragrance in this bar has some notes which recall verdant, fresh vegetation. Cut fresh grass, banana leaf, plus a base note of something earthy and warm. I think this is a good year round scent and will layer well with any fragrances you wear.
      I would recommend this product to: anyone with rough patches or some gentle assistance with exfoliation.

      Beautiful scent, summer jn a bar I honestly cannot remember how I used to exfoliate before the Buffing Bar came along - I have really sensitive skjn and often struggle with folliculitis and miscellaneous bumps. This bar really helps more than anything I've tried previously. I usually go back and forth between scented and unscented products because I really enjoy a fragrant shower. The Green Banana Buffing Bar js perfect, it smells so green, verdant and fresh. It truly enhances everything I already love about buffing. This bar js so summery and gorgeous, it reminds me of the feeling of showering after the beach, right before you're about to go to dinner. It's a sunset in a bar. I absolutely love thjs.
      I would recommend this product to: people with sensitive skin who also enjoy scented products

      Fun Fresh Scent A fun new take on the buffing bar! I loved the green banana scent - it's fresh and crisp making buffing a more invigorating experience!

      I’m loving this Banana buffing bar! I’m loving this new Banana Buff bar! Works the same as the original bar to get rid of my pesky ingrown hairs and arm bumps, but now with a yummy banana smell while bathing. It actually reminds me of the banana flavored laffy taffy candy I used to enjoy when I was young! Great product!
      I would recommend this product to: Everyone who would like to have soft, fresh skin!

      Same great exfoliation, amazing new scent ! I was a fan of the original blue buffing bar, and I’m a fan of this new fun twist! Love the color and the fresh soft scent. It is NOT artificial, neon sickly sweet banana scent. But rather the very subtle smell of a young, slightly underripe banana, which is exactly how I like to eat mine ! Same amazing exfoliation, fun new scent, and as always an ABSOLUTE must have if you’re going to doing self tanning this summer. My biggest advice is to splurge for the soap container / holder - because if you’re gonna invest in this soap you’re gonna want it to last. And it’s just too good to sit and turn to goo in your shower between uses, so do yourself a favor and use it, but take care of it , let it dry and store it properly , and get every last bang for your buck!
      I would recommend this product to: Anyone with skin. Ppl getting ready to shed their winter dry skin for summer. And ppl who self tan !

      Milky, fresh, green dream Long time Buffing Bar fan - IMHO best physical exfoliator out there. More rough than others, but not too rough. Super efficient vs gels. New scent is a dream - milky, fresh, green and almost like snuggling a baby's head. Perfect ME TIME energy. LOVE
      I would recommend this product to: Anyone who has KP / itchy/dry skin. Anyone who wears a lot of sunscreen. Anyone who loves smooth skin. Anyone down with a good kspa scrub. Basically anyone.

      No surprises here, I loves it So I loveeee the new scent of the buffing bar. Maybe I’m bias because I personally love bananas and topical fragrances, but this one is just the right balance. It’s not over powering, and smells natural. It got me nice and prepped for my trip and took it with me to stay polished in in the Floridian weather/sun!! I will 100000% be purchasing once I’m through with this bar!
      I would recommend this product to: Anyone who has KP, dry skin, normal skin, like truly it works for anyone who wants smoother/healthier skin!

      As good as the other buffing bars The same great formulation with a Palm Royale flair. Will be in rotation for late spring and summer.
      I would recommend this product to: Use before shaving or applying self tanner; otherwise, once or twice weekly

      Summer Invigoration Who knew platano could be a scent so clean and invigorating! It's the whiff you get when peeling the skin of a fresh green plantain. It's like the middle of a spring bud, zesty but not spicy. With the same exfoliating power of the original blue bar :)
      I would recommend this product to: summer skin

      An everything shower essential! The scent of the new buffing bar reminds me of citrus grooves bathed in sunshine. It’s very light and refreshing and reminiscent of a product that would be used at a spa.The scent is like being back in Hawaii. I have both the original and the new green banana buffing bar and I love them both. This product exfoliates without leaving any sort of greasy film behind. I love using it prior to shaving or after a long day at work (I’m a nurse and frequently feel pretty gross after a shift at the hospital). I also love it for removing any remainders of self tanner. It is a perfect addition to an everything shower!
