What our customers say
This soap has helped me with dry skin all over. It’s so mild I use it on my face also. Also all the soaps I have used I love the smell! Natural, Irish, handmade comes to mind when I think of the products. Leyna Shaffi, Dublin, Ireland

I would like to say how much my family enjoys your Donegal Natural Soap. The smell and texture are quite unlike other soaps and it feels very fresh after a good scrub. The soap even looks great! They also make a nice present. We always have wrapped bars available for guests staying in our holiday home on Inishcoo Island to increase the pleasure of their Donegal stay. Michael Mitchell, Belgium

I have very sensitive skin, I suffer from Psoriasis and eczema, and take a strong reaction to any perfumed products, up until now I could only use body shop products. Donegal soap is natural, smells lovely. I am delighted I have finally found a product that I can use and has a good price compared to hypo-allergic products, which I cannot use on my skin. I have used the Manuka honey and oatmeal soap which is lovely. My favourite is the Seaweed soap. It leaves an oil residue on my skin, which really helps my very dry skin. This is a locally produced product and by buying this product I am helping create local employment. My daughter also suffers from Psoriasis and she loves the product. Anne Kennedy, Glenties, Co. Donegal

Absolutely made a huge difference to my husband as he has problems with using preservatives on his skin and this soap has helped immensely. The Donegal seaweed soap is excellent as it is exfoliating but soft and leaves skin smooth and feeling nourished. The service I have received has been second to none. Professional, friendly and courteous. I would have no hesitation in recommending not only the products but the company. In actual fact I have sung it’s praises to many of my family and friends. Maxine Hockaday, Newry, Co. Down

I am a 62 year old with dry sensitive skin with a preference for natural or less standardised products. I really like the action of the soap, an emollient and cleanser in one. I enjoy the imaginative additions like seaweed and the delightful fragrances you use. I have eczema on my hands, both palm and skin, and it has not been irritated by Donegal natural soap. I would say Donegal natural soap was a superior and attractive product for discerning purchasers, manufactured to a high standard. In short, it is a great soap and well worth seeking out as well as helping aging skin (especially the moisturising shower bar ). Angelique Day, Donaghadee, Co. Down

I love Donegal Natural Soap because I know it is pure. The soap has helped me tremendously, with a form of psoriasis on my hands. They are clean, fresh and long lasting Also, the ordering and quality of customer service is excellent. Anne Dyer, Slough, UK

We first bought Donegal Natural Soap on our vacation to Ireland a year or so ago from a wonderful shop of crafts and arts in Ardara. As we planned another trip to Ireland hopefully next year, we remembered the soaps long since used up and checked the internet to buy more and have them shipped over here to the USA. They were even better than we remembered. We value authenticity and the natural scents and lovely soap speak of the honest craft in making them. When we walk into the bathroom (or another room where we have left a bar out) we feel like we are back in an Irish spa. The aromas are wonderful and the soap itself is a luxurious wash and rinse, quite an accomplishment given our very hard waters here in the mountains of Virginia. Needless to say, we will be ordering more for ourselves and gifts. Betty and Clyde, Catawba, Virginia, USA

The Signature Massage Oil is amazing as it absorbs very well and the scent lingers for a very long time, I also use the oil on my face twice a week as I work in an office a find by the end of the week my skin is very dry. The products are beautifully packaged and are very reasonably priced I stock up when I go to Donegal. Elizabeth Hendrick, Dublin, Ireland

“Got soothing hand balm as a present – am delighted with it. Great for cuticles, especially after gardening” Florence Coulter, Northern Ireland

Would highly recommend these soaps – they are beneficial for dry skin – my grandson has eczema and loves them; especially the shower massage bars. Dot Winifred, Northern Ireland

I have been using Isobel’s soaps bars and loofah soaps for a long time and can not recommend them highly enough – I suffer from very sensitive and dry skin and any of her soaps are just a pleasure to use, they don’t dry out the skin at all and I am so delighted that she has added a moisturiser and a soothing hand balm to her range which I am now using and delighted to report that they are fab!! They are light, non-greasy and are easily absorbed they work well for my skin…and of course they smell gorgeous. Anne Brennan, Donegal, Ireland

The essential oil diffuser is lovely and it works really well. Isobel was lovely to deal with and the products arrived very quickly. The packaging is lovely and they are a perfect gift – I would highly recommend this shop. Angela Canny, Limerick, Ireland
