I absolutely love the Marilyn shampoo bar. Smells amazing (actually wish there was a soap or lotion on the website that smells like it because I would buy it), it lathers well, and my hair looks and feels clean, without it irritating my scalp. If you use this and feel like it's not giving a good lather, wash your hair twice. If your hair is very greasy or dirty, even a normal liquid shampoo tends to not lather so well so keep that in mind. The conditioner bar, however; didn't do much for me. Maybe it was user error, but it gave me almost no slip, and I ended up just using my normal conditioner. I think for someone with fine or oily hair it might be a good option as it's not heavy at all, but if you need more moisture or detangling properties, this probably isn't for you. I will say since these bars are small in size, last for quite a few washes, and dry quickly after use, they would be very convenient for such things as camping etc.
