Most Helpful Positive Review L'Occitane soaps are the
L'Occitane soaps are the only ones I'll probably ever use. This is not a soap, its a piece of skill. Unlike other soaps, this doesn't use crazy ads, fancy wrapping... The soap speaks for itself.
Most Helpful Critical Review so sad
They've changed the formula for this soap. If you loved this soap before (like I did for years) I'm pretty sure you won't like the new soap and it's new smell. Why would you make changes to a great soap?

To everyone who used to use this soap "before" they supposedly changed the fumula I'm sorry this didn't work out for you, however I was at Disney Springs and happened to find the L'Occitane shop with this soap a couple of years ago (I assume after they changed the fumula) so I have no idea what it was like before I started using it so I imagine I may have not like it before. I love it since I started useing it. I has a mild very pleasant milky sweet clean fragrance, and I believe it does moisturize my skin. I usually use hand made olive oil soaps or soaps with not very many chemicals and this one is mild and feels silky on the skin. When showering I feel milky sweet clean. This is not very perfumy. And like I said, it moisurizes my skin like no other soap does. So to someone who didn't now what it was like before, I like it now. So to anyone wanting to try it out and you've read negative reviews, try this one out. I'm very sensitive to perfumes and heavy smelling soaps. I use essential oils instead, and I love the scent and feel of this soap. In fact I came on to purchase a couple of bars today!

Does not feel moisturizing at all. My skin feels drier after I use this soap.
Just NOT the Same!
LindaTea from MI
I have been using this soap since 2002. Everything that I loved about it has changed in recent years. The price skyrocketed, but the formulation changed dramatically. The amount of shea butter used went from 4th ingredient to 6th. The bars used to be triple-milled, and were 100% Vegetal. Just by taking away these three important things should have saved the company a ton of money, instead of raising the price. These soaps were the ONLY soaps my family used since 2002, so that will tell you how many bars I purchased, and what a dedicated customer I was. Also, the scent has changed from refreshing to chemical smelling. I can find other soaps on the market that are triple-milled, 100% vegetal, and more shea butter at a better price-point.
Wonderful soap for sensitive skin!
Janu letter M from Michigan USA
This is a large bar of soap, so I cut it into thirds with my large serrated knife and use it for face soap. It's very mild and comforting for my sensitive skin, and the bar lasts an entire year, so it's a good value for the price. I've bought expensive department store facial bars, and the Shea Butter Soap Milk is by far more gentle than the pricey brands. L'Occitane, please continue to sell this soap for those of us who can't tolerate harsh detergent soaps.
very unhappy about the price increase
Paige from Kansas
I love this soap. I am very disappointed in the TWENTY PERCENT price increase since last summer (the last time I stocked up). That seems excessive. Would you ever consider offering bulk purchase discounts?
Recent blend fragrance stronger than years ago
Suz from Chicago
This product changed. Too much fragrance in today's blend. I have always loved the milk soap. I have sensitive skin and this was always my go-to favorite. Recently, I purchased to replenish my stash and the new bars are different from traditional standard. Heavy-fragrance and the soap is molded in two pieces with a seam in the middle. It's weird. Milk soap should be mild, fresh creamy milk without fragrance.... today's blend is strong perfume. Ugh. just disappointing and frustrating.
Best winter soap
roxcar from Salt Lake City
This is the best moisterizing soap I have tried and used. I live in a dry climate, and in the winter, my skin feels it. With this, I have to use lotion less often. The smell is subtle and clean, very neutral. If you use a wash towel the bar lasts a lot longer. While expensive, it is significantly more moisterizing and gives a better lather than other soaps in its price point. While I can get away with cheaper soaps in the summer (and I have tired many!), in the winter I resort to this soap to avoid dry skin on my body. .
A.T from California
I really enjoyed using this soap because it smelled great and didn't dry out my skin. Also, because it doesn't come in a plastic bottle, so better on the environment. Surprised to see palm oil as an ingredient and will definitely no longer be purchasing this soap.
Not 💯 satisfied
Murratti from Abuja
It's totally great for my skin but gives me this rash on the face
This really is great soap.
Margaret from New York
I use this soap in the shower. I love the way it lathers up quickly and rinses off well. It last a long time, smells nice, and doesn't dry out my skin.

I love how my skin feels after using this product.
Bring back the old formula!
Mell from Bellevue, WA
I was down to my last bar. Stop and acquired several bars of soap.
I noticed the difference right away. I was in a hurry and didn't give it a second thought.
Compared it to my last bar. Different!!!!!
More chemical smell, less of the old freshness.
Why the change????
Ariel from Oklahoma City OK
Great with all skin types including sensitive skin.
I would consider buying the product again.
BH from MS
The original formula was better. Please consider bringing it back.
Bring Back the Original Scent
So Sad about L'Occitane from Beverly Hills CA
I went to buy the soap after years of not buying any, since I purchased over 100 bars and finally ran out. When I went to the store I instantly knew the scent was different. I smelled chemically and not like the original soft milk shea butter scent it had before. The shop girl made me feel like I was crazy when I told her that the scent was different. I went as far as driving home and bringing her the last bar I had and making her smell it. She finally had to admit that the scent was changed that the company told them to minimize that fact. Too bad L'Occitane the original was a great bar of soap
My Favorite Soap
AMANDA from Undisclosed, US
I absolutely love this soap,. It leaves you feeling clean and smells wonderful. I buy it consistently and have even added it to gift/care baskets for friends.
Gentle and wonderful
FRIDA from Undisclosed, US
I really love this soap. It has not dried my skin like other soaps. I love the mild scent.
BONNIE from Undisclosed, US
Love love love this soap. Great for me and my husband. Moisturizing. Fresh but not overbearing fragrance. Each bar last a long time.
New Formula Not Bad
JODENE from Undisclosed, US
Yes, they have changed the formula. I do prefer the old scent, but the new one isn't that bad. The new scent smells just like the shea butter ultra rich body cream, whereas the old scent smelled like the shea butter ultra rich hand & body wash.
Out of Verbena & Lavendar? Milk is the best...
JAIMIE from Undisclosed, US
I've tried all of L'Occitane's Extra-Gentle Soaps including the Shea Lavendar and Shea Verbena. Granted all the scents are wonderful but the Milk version I've noticed is much more moisturizing. As someone with clinically dry skin, this is a feature I've definitely noticed. Plus the scent is the better out of the 3. Saying it smells like MILK is disingenuous, it has a wonderfully sweet almond smell to it. It's hard to describe except that it's very relaxing. I look forward to using this soap and always have at least 5 extra bars on hand. Again, all of their Shea line soaps are wonderful but Milk is the best out of the 3...
RUTH from Undisclosed, US
Wonderful rich lather, gentle and smells lovely!
Not a fan of the new formula!!
CYNTHIA from Undisclosed, US
Please bring back the old formula! I've been using this soap exclusively for many many years and love the old scent. The new formula smells like it's been laced with perfume.
IMELDA from Undisclosed, US
Keep you skin clean and fresh
