After a rather positive experience with the Fresh lip balms, I wanted to try out more products from Fresh skincare/bath and body products range. One product I have been using for a nearly month now is the Fresh Seaberry Exfoliating Soap. I love a good body scrub but am too lazy to put in even the minimal effort that a proper body scrub requires. Exfoliating soaps are my short cut solution - not as effective but something is better than nothing, isn't it?
The first thing I noticed about the Fresh Seaberry Exfoliating Soap is the size - the bar is quite huge, and while I did initially find it quite luxurious, I had to later, quite reluctantly, chop it into 2 much more manageable halves! The soap has bits exfoliating particles - orange, cranberry, bamboo - scattered throughout. It has a mild, pleasant smell and easily works up a soft lather. The exfoliating bits tend to be a bit scratchy, but being dry skinned, I just find scratchiness quite satifying :P I do think those with sensitive skins might want to use a generous amount of water to ensure the bar doesn't get too scratchy. The soap washes off easily, and while I would never go so far as to call any soap moisturizing, Fresh Seaberry Soap definitely is one of the most nondrying soap I have tried.

I really cannot find a fault with this soap. It provides a gentle amount of exfoliation that works perfectly for daily use, and it doesn't dry out my already very dry skin. I do have to follow this up with a moisturizer, though normal skins may be able to skip the step. I would definitely repurchase whenever I manage to finish this bar!
