Review: Dr. Squatch Artisan Soap for Men

Dr. Squatch is a soap company unlike many other soap companies. There are tons of soaps out for women. They have tons of wonderful scents … for women. Dr. Squatch brings artisan soap to MEN. Manly men. Their scents are designed for the wild side in all of us.

I have never been a huge fan of bar soap since switching to liquid shower soaps. They always left my skin feeling dry and all of them seemed to leave behind a soapy residue. That's not the case with here. When I spoke with the guys over at Dr. Squatch, I informed them that I currently live in the Mojave Desert and that the dry winter air was destroying my skin. They said that the Bay Rum bar would be a great choice for me.

I have to say that they were definitely right. The bar feels soft and smooth on your skin. I left the shower with my skin feeling moisturized and smelling like a million bucks.

When I first got the bar in my wife said that I should cut it down into smaller pieces to make it more manageable. The 5oz. bars are fairly large compared to what I have used in the past. I told her that I wasn't some sissy. MEN don't have time to cut their soap!

Even as large as the bar is I found it easy to use. I originally tried it without a wash cloth. It didn't seem to suds up very much with the bar directly contacting my skin. When I switched gears and grabbed a wash cloth I was very impressed at the silky smooth lather that it produced. And the scent is very pleasing.

I found that my wife would often just sniff me. Which, under any other circumstance, might have seemed really weird (or not!). But she loved the scent of the Bay Rum bar just as much as I did.

The Bay Rum Bar is aptly described as "a traditional men's scent that is a timeless blend of crushed cloves, cinnamon sticks, crisp pine needles, and a sweet orange freshness. Its a smooth and creamy bar with a tropical twist that will transport you to the islands before that big day at work."

Some of their other scents include Pine Tar, Gold Moss Scrub, Cedar Citrus, and Spearmint Basil. With so many scents to choose from you it would be hard to get bored or not find one that you like or suits your skin type.

Dr. Squatch offers their 5oz. bars for only $6 each and for $5 per month you can get a monthly subscription of  one, two or three of their soaps.

Not only do they offer soap, they also have a line of scented oils to use as cologne or beard oils for $42 per 1oz bottle. You can also purchase gift boxes for your friends and family so that they too may experience what a true man should smell like.

So you don't know which soap would be best for you? Take the test on their site to figure out which bar would best suit your nose and your skin.

Orders over $50 are free to ship by using the code 50FREESHIP at checkout on their website.

Dr. Squatch is also available on Amazon.
