Performance reflections

This bar has a beautiful spicy fragrance and feels wonderful to use. It looks and feels as if it will dissolve into nothing within a few uses, but it is surprisingly long-lasting.

This product has a pleasant cinnamon scent and I found that it is effective at clearing skin of pimples. It is rather rough, though, so more sensitive users may not have the same results.

What I like about the Gingersnap Face Scrub is that it has a nice smell. I have sensitive skin due to medication and I found it to be a bit rough and sandpapery.

Rating out of 10 on the “would never buy this again” (1) to “must, must, must have this” (10) scale



3/10 (just because this product does not suit my skin type)

Advice for users

Gingersnap is a physical rather than a chemical exfoliant, so care is recommended when using. Massage gently to avoid damage to the skin. Lovely to use as a body scrub as well.

I would advise potential buyers with sensitive skin to apply this product softly or avoid it altogether.

Not really suitable for those with sensitive skin.

Back to basics with this great product

Making the change back to soap bars is made super easy and stylish with these. I bought one and loved it so much I bought 4 more. They are now in each bathroom and I have one for soap and another for shampoo bars in the showers. They look great and the teal adds a splash of colour in my neutral bathroom. Love these, use these, buy these! Gave one to my brother visiting from Canada, so maybe he'll spread the word there too!

Work nicely

Brilliant simple but well thought out design - so nice not having mushy bars anymore! They haven’t budged from where I originally stuck them, and clean up easily. I got the stainless steel ones and they have a quality feel to them. I will definitely be getting more

So Clever

These are great little things - I bought 2 for myself a few months ago and have now got another one as a gift for a friend.
Such a good way of cutting down on plastics. It's working well in my household and every little bit helps!

Love them

I bought this set to kit out my house and gave a couple to my sister as a gift. They’ve been just great at home, functional and stylish. No more plastic bottles for me!!!
My sister just told me her house sitter was asking about them too!

Love it!

What a cool wee gadget! Looks good, holds my soap well, wish I'd heard of it sooner! Thank you
