Most Helpful Positive Review TRAVEL SIZE NEEDED!!!
Only reason I don't mark it excellent is I'm STILL waiting for you all to SELL your travel sized bar of this soap. I've got money...I wanna give it to you...PUT A STICKER ON YOUR TRAVEL SIZED BAR AND SELL IT TO ME!
Keep your soap on a rope. Not gonna happen. It's not a travel bar. It's too large to fit in a travel kit. SELL ME WHAT YOU ALREADY MAKE. I'm tired of buying other peoples soap for travel but if I keep doing it, eventually I'm going to find a soap I may like better than yours and will just order that brand for both travel and home use. OR...you could sell what you already manufacture.
Most Helpful Critical Review Excellent, but too pricey
This soap does what it claims -- gets you very clean. More so than any other soap I've tried, this leaves you squeaky clean -- though, it can leave you a tad dry. Even with the great performance, it's just too expensive for me to justify using it on a regular basis. I mean, after all, it is soap.
I can see paying the high price for the anti-aging products, because they're so specialized, but not $15 for one bar of soap that is way pricier than soap that is just a step below this in performance. One bar lasted me less than a month. If money is no object, this is your soap. For the non-wealthy, like myself, I'll have to wait for the price to come down.

GeoG from New Jersey
I've been using it for over 5 years now. My girlfriend is always telling me how nice my skin feels and loves touching me. I scrub her back and shoulders with it in the shower and now her skin is smooth and soft. She loves it too!
I don't like any other soap now that I've been using it.
My husband LOVES this (and so do I!)
JessieinSF from San Francisco, CA, USA
I bought this randomly for my husband to give him one more gift to unwrap for a birthday. He's a no-frills person but he absolutely LOVED this soap. It smells amazing, lathers beautifully, and helps make his day better. Now I buy multiple bars at once so he never runs out!
My husband loves this!
CSexton from Newport News, VA
He likes the smell & feel of it. Other soap leaves a film, but this leaves him feeling clean.
Great Shower Bar!
Sofeee from Newport Beach CA
I bought this soap initially for my boyfriend but also found myself using it! Its really does cleanse your skin, keeps it from dehydrating and smells amazing. I love the slightly rough texture and it lasts a long time! We will both continue to use it regularly.
Better Than Expected
JoePanda from Lincoln NE
I was looking for something that's a little exfoliating, as opposed to the shower gel that I normally use, and this is just right. To be honest, it's actually not as gritty as I thought it would be, but it seems to get the job done. The lather is awesome and there's no obnoxious scent. It doesn't dry out my skin either.
Not Worth It
strudel from Raleigh, NC
This soap is way too overpriced for 7oz, doesn?t last, and offers no moisture; drys my skin too much. Kiehl?s soap hardly has an aroma that stays on me, but it does clean. The exfoliating beads also lasted until I couldn?t use the bar anymore.
Nikisue from Littleton
I got this for my husband cause he has back acne. It has been clearing up his back and also love to use it.
Best Purchase Ever
Willie386 from Miami, Fl
This is by far the best soap I?ve ever paid for.
wde2011 from New Orleans, LA, USA
My shoulders and back are prone to small acne breakouts since I workout 5-6 times per week. Plus it is extremely humid where I live. My skin is oily, and body washes tend to leave residue or make my skin more prone to breakouts. This stuff, while expensive, works amazing. While there is no acne medication in the soap itself, it leaves my skin feeling fresh, clean and very smooth. I highly recommend this product. The only drawback is the price for a bar of soap. That said, it lasts awhile.
Why "man" soap?
carolnyc from undisclosed
I love this soap. Not a man. Don't mind the "manly" packaging, but I'm sure you could sell this to other women, too.
This would be my only soap (if it was $5 cheaper)
Eobard from New Orleans, LA
This is up there with the best "men's" soap I've ever used (it's a close second to the Baxter Men's Exfoliating Body Bar, which is even more expensive). It's lightly exfoliating but your skins comes out feeling very smooth and energized. I would get a consistent supply if it was $ cheaper (or even $3 cheaper), or there was an option to buy in bulk. That says, it does last a while, just not so long that it's cost effective for me. But as a splurge in between my normal Dr. Bronner's soap, this is one of the best I've come across.
Great Soap but Overpriced
CNichols from Texas
My husband LOVES this soap. I purchased it in a gift set for him and have bought it once or twice as a gift but it's just too expensive to buy on a regular basis. Would love to have this as a regular in our household but not at $15 for one bar. Kiehl's please make this more affordable :).
Mugenf22t from Phoenix,az
Received this soap as a gift and it had been sitting in my bathroom medicine cabinet for months. Now I am a 3 in 1 kinda guy(soap,shampoo and conditioner in 1 bottle). So today I opened it up and overall a great product. I love the retro look packaging and the unique scent of the soap. I would have liked a little more bubbles from the lather. I can feel a tingle from the cleanse when the breeze hits my skin.
Best Soap Ever!
Gabe317 from PR
One of first Kiehl's products I purchased and man was I in for a surprise. This is hands down the best soap/scrub ever. It's kinda big at first but you'll get used to it. It has the perfect scrubby to soap ratio, cleans away dead cells and dirt from your skin, also leaves it feeling and smelling fresh!
Cannot Live Without It

THE BEST BODY SCRUB SOAP EVER. Nothing can compare to this product.
KeihlFanTucson from Tucson, AZ
This soap smells wonderful. It has a nice masculine and energizing scent. The price is a bit high but I can deal with it. My only problem with the soap is the texture of the exfoliants is way too rough on my skin. After trying it twice my skin was scraped in many places, similar to the effect of cat scratches. If they could use something less sharp it would get 4 or 5 stars from me.
Like others have...
nford from Portland, OR
Like others have stated - it's a bit expensive. But if you think about it, it's a pretty big slab of soap.
The cool thing about this soap is it will exfoliate your skin as well. Recommend this for both men and women.
Tip: if you want to use the self tanning lotion - use this all over your body beforehand
Worth Every Penny
nford from Portland, OR
I don't understand why people think this soap is too expensive. It's a pretty big bar of soap, with added benefits from superb ingredients.
The Ultimate Man Body Scrub Soap (not just for men) is a bar soap with an exfoliate built in. Only advice I can say is to use this product lightly on your body (not face).
I find this product to be hydrating to the skin while taking away all the dead cells.
Great soap; waaaaay too expensive
NichaelMichaelBluth from New York, NY
I'd buy this as my only soap bar, but it's too expensive, so I never buy it as my soap bar. As much as I like this soap, it's just not worth the price, so I can't recommend it.
Great BUT WAAAAAAY TO EXPENSIVE
Mariohio from Ohio
Great soap - I would use constantly but its way over priced -
Great Soap, Minus the Cost.
JeffMac30 from Boston, MA
This soap works great from the first time you use it all the way to the last use before it disintegrates. Unlike many soaps where just some of the soap is textured (and loses its texture after a few uses), this bar maintains its consistency right up until the end! The only downside, and its big, is the cost. $15 for one bar of soap is simply not worth it if you want this for everyday use. I got about 4 weeks of (nearly) everyday use out of one bar which means I'd use 13-14 bars a year, or roughly $200 a year.
Wow -- great soap
DGL857 from Tucson, AZ
I haven't used bar soap in years, but this is a winner. At first it felt rough on the skin, but I'm used to it now and really like knowing that it's exfoliating my skin. It's not irritating in any way, and the scent is fantastic. A bar half its size would be easier to handle, however.
Bayerischfrau from Houston, Tx
My husband has really oily skin and we have tried every antibacterial oil cutting soap from the grocery store. Still, at the end of the day, I could smell the oil on his skin until he showered at night. I got him this for christmas(since it's so dang expensive) and I haven't noticed the oil smell at all anymore. He said he actually feels clean and not Iike his skin is just stripped of moisture; now he doesn't want to use anything else. I'd love to see a special on this soap or see the price go down a tiny bit, because I do think it's over priced. Not sure if he'll get another bar until his birthday or Christmas, but if you can afford it, it's nice soap.
A bathroom staple
AlexanderTom from Tempe, AZ
I'd like to first open by saying I tried this on a whim via scoutsixteen.com's review of another Kiehl's product. At the time I purchased this soap, they ran a deal that was $30 for 3 bars. I wish I had the chance to purchase that deal 10 times and save myself some dough because - although the product is amazing - it's significantly overpriced. Even at $12/piece I'd be more satisfied with purchasing.
Still, here I am buying another three and telling you this product is great. I do use it with a washcloth or shower squeegee rather than direct skin contact. It's fairly rough on contact though my skin is rather sensitive. That being said, it's a great bar of soap - my skin feels exfoliated, refreshed and cleaned after I use it. Yes, I recommend this. I'm not sure it's health benefits exactly - whether it really has any effect on acne, dark spots, resurfacing etc. But you feel great and I haven't seen any adverse effects. The crucial thing about skin care is that you find a regime and you continue it. This bar of soap is part of my daily regime.
Best bar of soap ever created
festusbodine from Houston, TX
Texture, scent, effectiveness, plus the subtle scrub texture that lasts for the whole bar. This product is a treat. I don't use hard soaps in my shower because I don't like the residue they leave on tile. (No way around that.). But if you like a bar soap, you won't find a more excellent bar. Heaven.
