A 2-in-1 soap and scrub is one of my favorite products - makes life just so much easier for lazy me :D  I picked up the Thann Rice Grain soap some time back along with the Thann Oriental Essence Rice Grain soap which I gave to my mom.  What made me pick this up was the ingredients list.  The soap is filled with a whole lot of oils including rice bran and coconut oil and has charcoal for the scrubbing effect.

My Experience With the Thann Rice Grain Soap

This soap looks like something prehistoric man might have used, and definitely not to wash himself with.  The first thing I noticed when I unpacked this oddly shaped soap, though, is the smell.  It has a strong floral smell to it - reminds me of a strongly scented Indian flower (champaca).  The intensity of the smell does fade with time, and it really is not that much of an issue for me, but if you have a sensitive nose, you might want to sniff this before you buy it.  The soap itself is quite good.  It looks like a primitive stone tool and almost feels like a gentler version of a pumice stone.  It's amazing at giving a good scrub but is surprisingly not too harsh.  The oils in the soap balance out the scrubbing effects, leaving my skin smooth and soft.  It also leaves behind a subtle fragrance on my skin.  I do need to moisturize as usual.

Thann definitely makes some fabulous products with a lot natural oils and ingredients which makes them so effective, and this soap is no exception.  If there is one thing I wish Thann would do something about, though, would be availability.  I bought this in India from the only Thann retail outlet (in India) at UB City, Bangalore.  I do wish they open more outlets in a lot more cities some time soon.
