Product review: EO hand soap, french lavender

To my new readers, welcome to the number one product review site on the Internet. With an unbelievably tiny staff of one, we have now reviewed just over 137 million distinct products! And while we do regularly accept bribes, or "payola", as we in the business like to call it, from, well, anyone who cares enough, we still try to insert our real opinion in between the lines. You just have to pay close attention. For subscribers we always include our genuine opinion in code. And Patreon supporters all receive the unexpurgated text with my honest opinions, including how much money a company was willing to pay me for a good review, which can be quite telling.

So hit that subscribe button on the right panel or I could easily convince you to buy the most worthless junk you ever set your eyes on!

To my returning readers, thank you for your support and remember: There is no place else on the Internet to find product reviews. Don't even try looking. This is the only place. 

Today we are reviewing:

EO Hand Soap

French Lavender

This is a hand soap. It works! No one in my house appears to have gotten Coronavirus, and my hands are generally clean after I use the product, though they are invariably wet, so I should note this product generally requires the use of a towel. 

See my towel reviews in the following post numbers:









11,882,976 and etc...

My favorite hand soap smell is what I'd call "lemon candy", but this lavender smell is a great, clean scent. The soap has a pure, dense feel to it. In presentation and scent EO hand soap is keen to portray itself as "Natural". I don't even know what that means looking at their ingredient list, which has its share of... stuff. Nevertheless, I'm pretty much sold on its natural bona fides, being a bit of sucker for that sort of thing. 

This is by no means a "cheap" hand soap, but I am willing to say with this product "You get what you pay for". The EO Company understands this pretty well (wink wink, see: this review). I do recommend this fresh and appealing smelling soap with one quite serious caveat:

There is a terrible flaw on the packaging!

I'll let you take a look:

You surely see it, right?

Natural beauty begins with be?

Unh-uh, EO. Natural beauty begins with Na.


So, anyway, good soap:

If you liked my review subscribe and share.

If you shared and subscribed send me ten dollars.

If you sent me ten dollars and loved my review write to EO and tell them my review made you a huge EO Hand Soap user and that their review bribe was totally worth it.

Thank you. Come tomorrow when we review something else because, jesus, we are just drowning in... stuff, and there's only me to review it!


  1. Charming review. In exchange, I offer you the cartoon on page 84 of the june 22 New Yorker. Or maybe June 15/22, it might have been a double issue. In any case, it made me think of you and your travels.

    I hope your library labors are going well. I'm annoyed with my new "home" library. I picked up a book, curbside, on 6/24. They say it was due on...6/24. And is therefore overdue. Four others I have returned but they haven't been checked in, after 5 days. And I can't make any new requests because I have five books out. Except, I don't. And five is the maximum.

    I've been spoiled, having all of MELSA plus Wilson Library. Now I have one library that serves a population of about 25,000. OK, ending of whining. Hope you're staying healthy.

    1. All very interesting. Like much in life when I hear of restrictions at other libraries I am generally shocked and intrigued. Five item limit seems crazy, but maybe something about such a small system makes it sensible? We are so terrible at handling this crisis here I can hardly speak about it civilly, and yet nationwide we seem to be slightly above average, a truth that horrifies me.

      I'm so glad you liked the review!


If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
