I have been having issues with a flaky, itchy scalp. I tried every kind of bottled shampoo. I somehow heard about shampoo bars and decided to try them out. At first I ordered from a different company, all the bars smell like lavender oil. I found AVN through FB and ordered some samples. I LOVE these bars. The smell, the lather, the variety. I got my order pretty quick. My favorite is the orange blossom chamomile. I am still trying to figure out which shampoo works the best for my head but I am a customer for life. My samples pack of soaps and shampoos smelled so wonderful! No overwhelming lavender oil smell. Thank you !!
I already adore Apple Valley soaps, so when I recently re-stocked my stash, I thought I'd try a shampoo bar for the first time. I was hesitant since I imagine washing my hair with a typical bar soap, but good cow, it's awesome! I used it for the first time this morning- It lathered beautifully, smells wonderful and my hair feels so much lighter and softer today! Curse my weakness to a $2.50 sample- I may never be happy with another shampoo again! My next step is to pair this with the Matcha tea body soap.. and maybe I'll drink some mint tea at the same time just for kicks and giggles. Thanks for my new vice! You've got my entire family hooked now and even my military husband is requesting you guys if we start to get low!
I ordered samples of both the above bars. The only reason I don't give them 5 stars is because unfortunately the Peppermint and Tea Tree bar is not effective in controlling my dandruff but it smelled wonderful and made my hair smell very clean. The Coconut Body Bar was great for shaving actually even though I had brought it to maybe use as a conditioner replacement. I really wanted them to work in my hair care routine but it's just not working with mine. Love the way they smell though and would still recommend them to someone else.
I recently purchased the William Shakespeare, Herman Melville, Charles Dickens, and Jane Austen samples to give to some of my family members. The sample sizes themselves are defiantly worth their weight and my family members really enjoyed the way they all smelled. My only disappointment was that I couldn't find the C.S. Lewis or the Tolstoy bars in the list of samples. The C.S. Lewis is currently out of stock so maybe that's why. I would have just enjoyed sampling both of those as well. Regardless these bars are great and smell wonderful. Just like all of the other products I have purchased before.
I had no trouble getting suds and they are far better than camp shampoo sheets from camping store. I did add a little conditioner after so I can get brush through my thick wavey hair. I am sensitive to fragrances, so am not sure I will be able to use these, but will try on my upcoming vacation where I am trying to reduce the amount of weight I am carrying, and liquid (per TSA).
When I order soap I have to tell myself I can't have every sample! I love having a variety of options and there is always something new to try.
The sink salt bars are great and last a long time but are a little big. I live in a tiny home and have found that the sample size is perfect for our smaller sink areas and even better for putting in the camper for easy access to keep clean.
I often start off with a sample of new bars. They last long enough to know if your body agrees with the ingredients without buying a whole bar. They are also great for traveling!!!
I think these bars are great! I think the idea is wonderful, but some people have hard water, like we do. :) I was glad I got samples before hand to find out if we had hard water or not before I got the big bars. I plan on still using them. We might get a shower head filter. :)
These samples are a great way to figure out how you like the smell of these bars and how they make your hair feel. I purchased these because I had been using J.R. Liggetts shampoo bars, but I didn't enjoy the way they were making my hair smell. The samples I purchased each make my hair smell and feel great. I am ecstatic about it and will definitely be buying more from Apple Valley. :D
