Let me begin by saying I have dry and sensitive skin and I am constantly searching for the perfect body cleanser. I have tried soaps with olive oil, oatmeal and aloe. When those didn’t work I tried some more with cocoa butter, seaweed and honey. I’ve purchased department store body washes and farmers market soaps, and still never found something that really worked for me. So I was hesitant when I found out my first review was going to be a bar of soap. Was I going to be able to find anything to heart about my bar of MOR Soap? In a word – yes.
I have found it – that miracle product I’ve been looking for my whole life. This beautiful bar of MOR soap ($14) loves my skin just as much as I love it. The moment I opened the box and saw the bar sitting there I was in heaven. We appreciate our packaging porn here at wht, and this company might just hold the crown for the most lust worthy packaging ever. (It’s true, I had a bar of MOR Soap on my vanity for over a year, unopened, because it was just. too. pretty. to use ~ Tyna)
Everything about the this product is perfect to me, the beautiful packaging, the generously sized, engraved bar, and the amazing scent. I tested the Snow Gardenia scent, which wht described in a MOR perfume oil review as “a true trip through a soft scented garden,” and “extremely feminine and floral”. This scent is a mixture of Gardenia, Juniper Berry and Angelica with Ylang Ylang, Vanilla and Sandalwood, with Gardenia jumping out as the dominate note. Our review team will be by in the comments to review other (amazing sounding) soaps including the Kale & Watercress and Italian Blood Orange.
I was so excited for that first shower, and my MOR did not disappoint. The lather is less bubbly then you would expect, it’s more like a creamy rinse then a typical bar of soap. The soap goes on smooth and rinses clean, no filmy feeling or greasy residue. The only thing this bar leaves behind is an overall smoothness, which probably comes from the Shea butter in formula. I also love that is has Vitamin E, which is a great antioxidant.
This soap just makes me feel like my skin is naturally smooth, soft, and perfectly balanced all day and all night. MOR has turned my daily shower into an indulgence. I’m not quite sure if it’s the combination of Vitamin E and Shea butter or the triple milling this soap goes through, or some other amazing secret they aren’t talking about, but this is the best soap I’ve ever used. I feel more optimistic going into the winter dry skin season then I have ever been, because I have MOR on my side.
The bar has been in steady use for 2 weeks and looks no smaller then the day I unwrapped it. Actually the only negative thing I can think of is that the bar is just a little too large for my hands to easily hold in the shower. But I’m not complaining, MOR soap does everything you could expect from a bar of soap and a whole lot more.
I’m officially addicted, and I can’t wait to try MOR of their amazing products. Readers and testers – did you fall in love with your MOR Soap (or are you still waiting for just the right time to unwrap the bar of perfection?)
