Anyways, I have sensitive skin and try to use all-natural products, so when I found this soap, I was uber happy. My one complaint is the excess packaging they use – the soap comes wrapped in an extra plastic layer inside a box. “Relaxing” is their lavender bar, btw. The product name change threw me off for a little while there. I thought they had discontinued my favourite soap! :)”
