Irish Spring Soap Review (the positives)

Hair & Body Body Wash and Bar Soap alike; the message to be summed up in this Review Of Irish Spring Soap is that–Irish Spring Soaps contain ingredients that make it a moisture enhancing soap. After testing many of their products I have found that the softening qualities in them are so noteworthy I couldn’t subside the urge to share this convenient side effect that has seemingly been so easily overlooked! Irish Spring Soap is distributed by the Colgate Palmolive Company in New York, NY. And just like the way I am satisfied that my hands won’t dry out when using Palmolive dish soap when I hand wash dishes–I am equally as pleased with the softness of my skin when I wash my body using any of the Irish Spring Soaps in their product line. Soaps usually dry out my skin and even though I think of names like Caress and/or Dove for moisturizing skin, I have found Irish Spring (A soap usually remembered for it’s deodorizing scent rather than it’s moisturizing capabilities.) to be a hidden gem on the market today.

Undoubtedly, the scent is memorable and the latest hair & body wash bottle boasts about it’s 8 hr. scent system. And the sales pitch I gather from the bottle suggests it’s a hair and body wash for men, infused with Pro-Vitamin B5; which leads me to wonder: Would men still choose to purchase it over other other soaps if Irish Spring marketed its softening qualities rather than its Ireland-Inspired ultra deodorizing scent properties? Who knows. Tip to the lads looking for lasses: Ladies that I know like a mans hair and skin being softer too. So please, I don’t suggest you switch brands as I find that a touch from a hand with dry skin brings about the same level of satisfaction as a nail scratching on a chalk board does. When reviewing soaps, I think that everyone should be concerning themselves with skin-moisturizing capabilities.

Irish Spring Soap Review Cont’d (the negatives)

The only downside I find worth mentioning in this Irish Spring Soap Review is that it contains sulfates, (The Hair & Body Wash contains sodium laureth sulfate …SLS for short.) and although most of the personal hygiene products on the market do–I still am not so impressed with seeing this toxic ingredient on the Irish Spring Soap Ingredient List.
