Magic Soap

Have you ever tried one of Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps? This soap is like no other, because it has 18 uses. It can be used as a body wash, shampoo for your hair, or you can even use it to brush your teeth, just to name a few. I have been using this soap on and off for years. You can find this at your local beauty supply store or the health food store. I beleive I saw it either at Target or CVS this week but I can't recall which store.
My favorite scent is the Citrus but this product also comes in other scents like almond and peppermint. This 100% vegan product is made with organic oils.
Here is the ingredients list for the citrus orange soap: Water saponified organic coconut & organic olive oil, organic hemp oil, organic jojoba oil, organic orange oil, organic lemon oil, organic lime oil, organic grapefruit oil, citric acid and vitamin E.
Good stuff!
I paid $8.99 for 16 oz
Would you be willing to try this on your hair or to brush your teeth?
*Edit- B has confirmed that this is sold at Target.- thanks

Ummm, I love this stuff! I use the lavender since lavender is great for keepin' breakouts to a minimum. This is all I use on my face as far as cleansing it goes. I don't think I will eveeeer se anything else. I know for a facr that you can get it from Target. I also use the peppermint one to clean my bathroom and kitchen and my Mother, the herbologist, mixes the unscented one with baking soda for a toothpaste. So yes...I am a huuuuge proponent of the magic soaps!

wow, what a mind-reader you are. i was just thinking about trying this. my mom has had locks for a few years now (like 8) and she has been using that for most of the time. i dont know if i would brush my teeth with it because im partial to crest whitening, but im curious to see how it will do for my hair.

Dr. Bronner magic soaps are fabulous!! My sister introduced me to this lovely product and I use the almond scent as my body wash.

I'm intrigued. This sounds like a frugal girl's dream. But on the real, I won't be using it on my teeth. I'm a dental snob.

Just_Wondering said...

WOW I can't believe there is a soap out there that can be used for everything (hair, body, teeth and the bathroom floor!) I've gotta try this thing out!

Amina said...

I've used them also but mostly to mop the floor or clean dishes
i try it on my skin and hair and it left them so dryyyyyyyyy.....

PCD (Pretty Circle Drawer) said...

i wouldn't use it for anything besides showering...well, maybe something else, just not in my mouth or hair. i'm such a stickler for specialized products. all-in-ones make me nervous

Therapeutic Musings said...

I have been wanting to try this but have been too scared! I will be picking some up this week now.

@Bthanks for teh target info, I added it to the post.
@Antithesis i don't use it for my teeth or my hair but I have heard great things from those who do use it in that way.
@Jamie please let me know what you think
@Bellefille - I use this as a body wash also, it is also great for shaving.
@Frugalista I am a hair snob so this stuff doesnt touch my hair but the ingredients are great so it shouldn't be a problem.
@Just Wondering- get some girl...lol
@Amina Well Im sure your floor is shining..lol
@PCD I said in a previous post that I am not a gal who likes all in one anything, and even though this has many uses I just use it for bathing and shaving..lol. But i know others use it in a variety of ways and they have found great success.
@Theraputic its great give it a go.

I don't know about using this to brush my teeth. I have used it before as a bath wash. Used the lavender scent. Some got down in the 'area' and burned the mess out of me. I was sensitive for days. Needless to say...it went straight in the trash.

Dominican Enigma said...

I use the lavendar as well. It's one of my very faves!!!!!!

yummy411 said...

I love the peppermint.I use it on my hair and skin.

Product Junkie Diva said...

@Jewells- yikes thanks for the heads up :-)
@DE I don't think I have ever used the lavendar so I will give it a sniff. :-)
@Yummy yes it is a good product
@Anonymous please let me know how it makes your hair feel. I have not tried it on my hair ever. Are you relaxed or natural?

Nerd Girl said...

I like it as a body wash, not so much as a shampoo - dried my hair out. Would love to try the citrus fragrance - I've only run across peppermint, lavender and almond.

Anonymous said...

You do not want the peppermint to go into your downtown area either...

Product Junkie Diva said...

@Nerd girl thanks I was wondering how it worked for the hair.
@Anonymous-thanks for the heads up.

i have been using Bronners for a while. I prefer the Tea Tree version and i use it on my body, face and hair. Brushing teeth? I think i will pass.

Product Junkie Diva said...

@Abena I don't think I have used the tea tree one..thanks for the reminder.

Beautiful said...

When I did my big chip years ago...I use the peppermint one. You can brush your teeth with it!! It got a tingle that is out of this world. Oh, and you can clean your vegetables too!

Product Junkie Diva said...

@Beautiful thanks I forgot to mention that you can use it to clean your fruit. And finally someone has brushed their teeth with it...thanks :-)

brownee said...

I'm usually skeptical about all in ones, but I'm gonna give this one a go based all the positive responses here.

Product Junkie Diva said...

@Brownee believe me I am not usually a fan of all in ones but I do like this product. I really just use it for bathing but hey it's good to clean your floors brush your teeth or to clean chemicals off of fruit when you get it from the grocery store.
According to what the ladies have mentioned, please don't use this on your hair..lol
In fact my mom used this on her hair and it looked just as bad as the ladies described in this comment section so please don't use it for your hair.
Thanks for reading

I live on this stuff. All I use as a body wash. I have a big nappy fro, so I'm guessing it's probably too dry for my hair type, so I won't try it. Love the Peppermint scent whenver I'm hot & sweaty, it's tingly & refreshing. But my fave scent is the Almond. Nice & pleasant, clean. Dr. Bronners rocks!

Product Junkie Diva said...

Hey Flygirl
Yes I like the Almond scent also...great stuff.
