I recently tried several Mama Bear's soaps and what a bargain! I would put them up against anything on the market at any price. I used them with both badger and boar brushes and couldn't believe how fast they make a boatload of lather. Very creamy, slick and the scents are wonderful! Nothing leaves my face feeling better. If you haven't tried one, put Mama Bear's on your must-have list. Also, as many others on B & B have mentioned, Sue is a pleasure to do business with.
