Pros: It's cheap, scrubs well, and the bars are big.
Cons: It could easily be considered a tool to torture Taliban infidels.
It would seem like a good deal; large bars, thick lather, low solids....but it's not. This soap is a danger.
Soaping up my hands to wash my ears turned out to be an almost unbearable experience. I splashed one drop in my left eye.
The pain was instantaneous. And excruciating.
I immediately moved into the running water to rinse it out, recalling my days in the chemical industry and proper safety eyewash use. Hold the eye open with one hand, while running cold water over the eyeball. I couldn't even open my eye by hand for a good minute, I was wincing so hard.
After my eye teared up enough that I could open and rinse, which I did for a good 10 minutes, I spent the rest of the evening feeiling like there was sand in my eye. I used countless eyedrops attempting to keep it feeling cool and to smooth the blinks. Blurred vision did not subside for hours. The redness lasted two days.
In addition, I often shower with my toddler, so we can all clean up and I can make sure she gets a good scrubbing. God forbid it would have been her with the Kirkland soap in her eye.
Needless to say, the remaining six bars I had in the closet went straight into the trash.
I used Irish Spring, glycerin soap, Dove, and Dial. Those have had rare visits to an eye at some point in my 35 years of living, with some feeling of discomfort. I'd rather take a kick in the face with golf cleats that repeat my Kirkland experience.
