Testimonials from our customers:
You have a truly good quality product. I couldn't be happier
with my purchase. They are scents I have looked for in a simple bar soap for a long time. The fact that they're made
right here in Minnesota makes it all the better. And the free samples were a thoughtful nice touch!~
George C., MN
I just love your soaps! I am a breast cancer suvivor and cannot use just any soap
on my skin. Your soaps are pure and smell heavenly and most of all are SAFE to use. I highly recommend your soaps to everyone
and especially to people with sensitive skin or who have had cancer or are going through radiation or chemotherapy.
You will never go back to any other soaps after using Real Simple Soap! I even use them to shampoo my hair and they make
my hair soft and smell so good. Thanks again for your wonderful soaps!
~ Joyce D, California
First of all I want to say your
soaps are wonderful!!!! I am officially a soap snob. At this point I will only use your soaps in my home. ~Kathleen, gmail
We stayed at the A****dale Motel and ya know what? When we came home yesterday
me and Chris were really itchy! I thought - oh great...the A****dale has bugs! But I got to thinking about it and I know what
it was......we didn't bring "Val Soap" with us and used the motel soap. Your soap spoils us! : )
~ Carol E., Minnesota
wanted to send you feedback on the bars of handmade soap I purchased. I was skeptical at
first, thinking how could handmade soap be any different than commercial soap bought at the store. I would normally buy it
and then let it sit in a bathroom just for "show." Wow, was I surprised, not only does it smell GREAT,
but it lathers wonderfully and it leaves my skin....oh-so-soft! I can't see myself ever going
back to store bought soap, your handmade craft is wonderful! I can't wait to use the other scents.
My order arrived yesterday and thank you so much for the extra
sample soap! I have two kids and younger one is 10-month-old
baby and she has down syndrome. My dear friend looked very hard to find a special gift for her sensitive skin and
she sent us your soaps. We loved your soap and we have been using yours for her & also for us too.
As the child with
down syndrome tends to have more sensitive and dry skin, your soap is very gentle and works perfect on her skin.
I bought couple of Bare Naked this time and plan to
share with my friends who just had/going to have a baby to see if they like those too! Thank you so much for making such wonderful products and I like your personal touch correspondence
on your business.
~Emi M., California
I live in the "North woods," and recently I got eaten alive by gnats and mosquitos--literally
had over 50 bug bites on my head alone! Plus a lot more everywhere else. They were driving me crazy--so I grabbed a bar of
your tea tree oil soap and out to the sauna I went. The next morning, I noticed I didn't itch and the swelling was gone on
almost all of the bites on my head. YEAH! I now use that soap every night and have convinced Doug to use it too, amazing!
Great Soap! And it smells good, too--a good sauna soap. Thanks!!!
~ Paula C., Wisconsin
I'm sure you hear it all
the time, but I just wanted to let you know
that I tried a sample of soap I got from you/your company and loved
it. I can't believe how long that little sample lasted. I have
battled with adult acne and have
had a hard time finding a cleanser
that didn't leave my face dry or oily. Your Knockout soap has really
been helping. Of course, now that the sample is dwindling I have just
placed an order for more.
Thank you for making wonderful soap!
~Ainslee C., Wisconsin
wanted to tell you I really love the soap and will order again. It keeps the bathroom scented for a long time
afterwards as well. Really some of the very best soap I've ever used, and thank you very much. By the way, your Real Simple Soaps are cured so well that they last longer than other hand-made soaps I
have tried. There is a noticeable difference so your soaps are even more economical! Thank you for being such
a fabulous soapmaker.
~Pamela B., California
just received the order I purchased from you earlier this week, I ordered Knockout. I'm 23 years old and just recently
started getting acne. I've been trying everything from store bought to Proactive, I decided to start using natural products
on my skin since the chemicals are so harsh. Like I said, I just recieved the bar today I used it twice today once in the
morning and just now before bed...already my blemishes are drying and shrinking! It also doesn't over dry my skin, it made
it really soft, and it lathers great. So I just wanted to thank you and I will definitely be ordering and trying a lot more
and told a few people about your site. Again thank you so much and I appreciate the samples.
~ Brandy H., Michigan
Well I want to personally
thank you so much for my order!! I had problems with the ordering part but with your help everything was taken care
of and my order was still shipped the same day. I ordered a lot of sample packs and I'm so HAPPY with my purchase. What
a selection! I gave some to my mom and some to my friend and to his mom hehe (Spreading the goodness around). You should be
hearing from me soon to purchase big bars of Fall Harvest, Peppermint Oatmeal and of course Cleopatra's Treasure. Sincerely,
Your new loyal customer = )
~ Rita B., Massachusetts
I purchased some of your sample soaps, and had you send a gift basket to a friend in California. I love the smells of your soaps. They are also a more practical air freshener.
My friend in California wrote that the baby soap was so soft on the baby's sensitive skin and that the baby's skin stayed
moist after washing. I am using Cold Snap for my face and Orange something in the
shower. Wonderful. I am looking forward to using other scents. ~ Yuko R., Florida
just wanted to let you know how much I love your soap. I've tried other natural soaps, but yours has a perfect blend
of oils and lather. It feels like silk on my skin! When I get out of the shower, my skin feels clean and not coated
and dry as with store bought soaps. I'm glad I found you! A happy customer,
~ Kim T., Michigan
I have to say that I have found
Real Simple Soap not only compares to major brand name soaps but I think it tops them. The scent stays on your skin
all day long and is so enjoyable. I recently purchased the Paradise scented bar. It reminded me of Plumeria from Bath and
Body Works but without all the added chemicals. Real Simple Soap is my new favorite kind of soap. It is also good for our
environment because buying bar soap means no plastic bottles. Thank you for making me feel good about what I am washing
~Sarah B., Minnesota
you for my order Valarie - I LOVE your soaps! They smell fantastic and they are obviously made lovingly with care.
~ Helga R., Alabama
am loving the Cold Snap! soap. It's making a big difference for me. The lather is great along with the slightly
rich, oil feel it has and I think that oil is the secret. My hands don't feel as dry afterwards and I'm using Aveeno
hand lotion recommended by my friend that told me about your soap. I haven't tried Bare Naked or the freebie soap
yet but wanted you to know your soap has made a positive difference in my situation...and I've been searching for a long
~Julie V., California
As usual, I meant to send this sooner, but I am in love with my new soaps
(and the others from a previous order I am still using) -- I am trying to remember how it is I got along without Oh Honey
Honey, Cleopatra's Treasure (and occasionally Knockout) as facial soaps. My skin is just amazing and I know it has to
be due to your products. My bathroom now either smells like "green and clean" (depending on if I'm using Cilantro,
Lily of the Valley, or Cool as a Cucumber in the shower) or a minty paradise when I use Peppermint Patty. Thank you for making
such great soaps that I will continue to purchase for as long as you make them!
I received the soap on Saturday and of course had to try it out asap. I just want to thank
you for making beautiful soap! I just love Lily of the Valley and I also think I have just about all of the scents that you
have made. I wish I could see you make it and I can tell you put your heart and soul into it. Again thank you for making your
~PeggyAnn Y., Connecticut
I have a new customer for you, my daughter.
After Bev used a well known cosmetic on her face, she had a reaction to it but by using "Oh Honey, Honey" the pain
disappeared & her face healed. Thanks for sharing your soap with our family. Have a blessed day.
C., New York
I received my package last week, and I'm so happy!
Your soaps are absolutely amazing ! I love all of them, scents are wonderful, lather is great and the bars are so beautiful!
And thank you so much for adding the free bar, cause I forgot to choose one. I really love the Pearberry. And
thank you also for the free samples, I'm going to order them all in the future! I have tried one Finnish soap company
selling handmade soap (we don't have so many of them here..). Their bars are more expensive and half smaller, and
scents are allso bit blah. So I will definitely order your soaps in the future, and I'm really going to tell all
my friends and family members about your soaps ! Thank you so much for great soaps and fantastic customer service!
Eveliina from Finland
Love, love, love, love your soaps! Wish I had lotions to match so I can smell so good all the time! I
absolutely adore your soaps, Ginger Soufflé is my fave! I've been sending the link to your page out to everyone
who is stuck and can't think of a gift idea!
~Courtenay B., Iowa
I just wanted to send an overdue e-mail raving about your
soaps. I will certainly be making future orders. My husband and I love our new soaps...my favorite is Tres and
I loved the sample of Cleopatra's Treasure (I will be having to order that full sized soon!) and he loves
his Fall Harvest and Patchouli Orange. He actually cut his bars into smaller slices and has them in one of his drawers
and a cupboard and whenever he opens either it smells amazing :) Thanks!
~Melissa G., Minnesota
I've been meaning to email you for over two weeks now, ever since I received my
order. At least now I've had a chance to try to soap. I love it. It's so great to use and really
smells good (I should have known, since I could smell it before I even opened the box!). I'm already thinking about
which ones I'm going to order next time. Your customer service is also excellent!
Thanks so much!
~Erica N., Alabama
I just wanted to thank you soooo... much
for the great wedding soaps. You really went above and beyond. They are going to look great in the baskets...
I will have to send you a picture of the baskets when we put them together. We will be ordering more soaps soon!
Thank you again we appreciate it so much!
-Kaarin & Dara N., Minnesota
I got a bunch of soap before Christmas, and my husband LOVED the peppermint soap.
He has a lot of sinus problems and had surgery this last spring for it, but he said that soap in the morning made a huge difference
in how he felt all day with his sinuses and headaches, like it 'cleared him out' for the day. : ) Plus
it smells fantastic... our whole master bath and bedroom smells like peppermint! I was going to ask too when you
thought you might get the oatmeal/milk/honey back in stock? That's what I've been using for my boys, my oldest has
raging eczema and that soap has done wonders. I did order the goatsmilk one this time, so that will be great too for his skin
~ Becky W., Minnesota
just want to let you know that I've tried some of your soaps and they are excellent!!! I bought a bunch to
give out to my gal friends for Christmas....I can't wait to tell them how wonderful natural soap is...hopefully I'll
be able to convince a few of them to make the switch!! I know that I don't plan on going back to commercial soaps...no
~Kelley S., Pennsylvania
just wanted to let you know that I really like your soaps. They are of a very high quality and smell yummy. =
~Yoonme H., South Korea
My Co-worker came in and said her neighbor had given her a few bars and was ranting and
raving about how good they smelled and how much they lathered and how relaxed they made her feel etc... etc... etc... and
mentioned she had a web-site, and couldn't believe how many different kinds you had etc...I asked her for it and
she kept forgetting, then on Friday she came in and smelled SOOOOOOO...GOOD! I said "MMMMm you smell
really good!" Yeah she says, this is that soap I was telling you about and FINALLY gave me the web site.
I ordered, then went up North for the weekend and when I returned my order was waiting for me on my doorstep, THAT was
fast so of course I already dug into it and me and the kids smelled every bar! (I originally bought them for Christmas
gifts but I think I'm gonna have to dig into them early, they are truely wonderful!) Thank you for the peach pomegranite
too! VERY GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE! I am very impressed with the refund that has already been taken care of by paypal
too! I had to order one of each cause there's no way I could possibly make up my mind...besides... everyone can
ALWAYS use soap! RIGHT?
~ Tracey P., Minnesota
Love the soaps--yours is the only soap we'll use in our sauna now--lathers up wonderfully
and rinses so well, but leaves our skin sooooo soft! The scents are yummy. Use it at home, too, of course!
We saw you at the Lions Park at Rockford Rivers Days.
We grabbed a couple of your free samples and love them. After trying the free samples I ordered a basket of different
soaps. Gave a couple to my Granddaughters and one to my daughter, they love them, I am thinking of ordering baskets
for Christmas gifts, can't go wrong, thank you for your wonderful soap!
~Barbara D., Minnesota
I am a very happy return customer.
I would like to reorder some soap. I did order some soap from you and I am very satisfied. Please contact
me asap I'm running out of soap!
~ Stephenie B, Minnesota
We've tried nearly everything to help with my daughter's sensitve skin, but
after just a few days of bathing with your Lavender soap, her skin problems are solved! Thank you so much, we
won't be using anything else!"
~ Jen F., Minnesota
love the margarita soap! The scent is so fresh. My husband tried it and liked it as well.
~ Tanya B., Ohio
Oh my gosh, Val, I love it! I asked Carol about samples after I read your email
and there were three left. I took them all! The Lime Margarita, the Lavender and the Tea and Ginger, all wonderful!
I like the Lime Margarita most, I wanted to lick it!
~ Julie B., Minnesota
I love the
lemon poppyseed soap. I find myself picking
it up to smell every now and then. I like that it is unique/original. Very creative idea.
~ Joy N., Minnesota
I used the Peppermint Patty soap last night
for my bath and loved it. I can't believe how well the soap lathers up. The only bad thing was that I couldn't
get to sleep till after 11:00 p.m. That soap sure does perk you up. I'll have to remember to use it in the
a.m. only. Haha.
~ Jodi S., Ohio
Love the soap - Love, Love, Love it! I'm going to end up being a compulsive hand washer just to use
~ Terri S., Minnesota
I would like to order a
couple more bars of the coconut soap. Ron and Ethan have discovered that is takes away the winter itches also
and for some reason they go through more soap than I do! Thanks.
