Sasquatch Soap Co. – Pine Tar

Finally getting back to another bar soap review. And I am going back to the Sasquatch line. I loved their bay rum bar so much I just had to try another. This time I am going with their Pine Tar soap. Very excited to try this one out.

Just like the last bar, it has the exact same packaging. The only difference is the name of the soap and the ingredient list. I really like the goofy Sasquatch guy on these labels haha. He reminds me of like a cartooned Jed Clampett type Sasquatch.

The bar itself is a black colored soap with little flecks in it. It has a really nice smell to it, smells just like it’s name. I have a feeling this is going to be a scrub bar due to the flakes in it. I particularly like scrub bars a lot. I am even working on perfecting mine for my new soap company. I like the abrasive feeling and the exfoliation that comes from bars like that. I’m also a big fan of black soaps. Don’t really know why exactly, but I dig them quite a bit.

I decided to work up a little water on the bar to show the beginning stage of it’s lather. After a couple seconds, a slimy, sticky, grey foam showed up. And almost immediately even more flecks appeared from under the surface. I think I am going to really like this soap. I’m definitely curious to see how I like the lather. I’ve never had a lather do this at the beginning stage before. Never felt a slimy feel from a soap before. Could be cool though, you never know.

After about 5 seconds of using the bar, it turned into feeling like 60-grit sandpaper. This stuff is crazy! Caution to fair skinned folks, this is definitely a man’s soap! It’s gritty and scrapes your skin really well. It feels almost sharp it’s so gritty. I love it! It’s not a soap for the faint of heart that’s for sure though. I really liked how the scent was in the shower. It got a little stronger, but didn’t overwhelm at all. And it went very well with my Clubman shampoo.

The lather ended up turning into a very frothy foam, almost a picture perfect bubble group. As you can see, it almost looks too good to be true. But I can honestly say that’s exactly how the lather was. After my shower my skin was left feeling very clean. I decided to look at the label to see what was in the soap. Come to find out, they use the same thing that I do in my bar, steel cut oats. They use a bit more than I do though, my bar isn’t this gritty. This bar really is the ultimate scrub bar. It’s awesome. Once my skin was dry I felt my arms and noticed than they were a bit more smooth than normal. I’m not sure if it was due to the grit, or the soap, or both. However, it was definitely nice.

I have to say, this bar has quickly become one of my new favorite soaps. I wish I had a couple more on hand. I don’t think one bar will fill my craving for it. I might just have to go but a couple bars before I run out so I can use it for a while. I tend to do that when I like a bar a lot. I think that is part of the reason why I don’t review bar soaps very often. I kind of get stuck on one that I like for a while.

This is definitely a soap you guys should check out. As long as you can handle a serious scrub bar that is. To get a couple bars head on over to their website. http://www.sasquatchsoap.com
They have quite a few other bars on there as well, so check them all out. So far this company has shown me nothing but great soaps. I know you guys will like them.

Scrub that mug,
