Performance reflections

This bar has a beautiful spicy fragrance and feels wonderful to use. It looks and feels as if it will dissolve into nothing within a few uses, but it is surprisingly long-lasting.

This product has a pleasant cinnamon scent and I found that it is effective at clearing skin of pimples. It is rather rough, though, so more sensitive users may not have the same results.

What I like about the Gingersnap Face Scrub is that it has a nice smell. I have sensitive skin due to medication and I found it to be a bit rough and sandpapery.

Rating out of 10 on the “would never buy this again” (1) to “must, must, must have this” (10) scale



3/10 (just because this product does not suit my skin type)

Advice for users

Gingersnap is a physical rather than a chemical exfoliant, so care is recommended when using. Massage gently to avoid damage to the skin. Lovely to use as a body scrub as well.

I would advise potential buyers with sensitive skin to apply this product softly or avoid it altogether.

Not really suitable for those with sensitive skin.

Love this!,

Love, love this concept. What a great invention. I make my own soap, and being mostly made with olive oil, it can get soggy if it’s laying in a soap dish. Fast forward....finding this unique BlockDock has kept my soap upright and no more soggy mess. Thank you for a wonderful product, which, by the way, looks very elegant on my shower wall.

Love it

Finally a way to keep my solid shampoo bar dry! I’ve tried a bunch of ways but they always stick out into the shower too much and get knocked off the wall by my tall family. Absolutely delighted with the slimline design. Thanks so much!!

Belting block dock

Great piece of kit holds the shampoo and conditioner soap bars and does what its meant to, soap lasts for ages definitely saves on buying plastic bottles etc.

Handy hooks!

We got one of these as part of a gift package otherwise I might not have looked at it. It’s proved so handy I’ve ordered another for the second bathroom and the caravan.

Great product

These are a great invention and keep my shampoo and conditioner bars drier which means they last longer and there is less mess. I no longer need to remove them after each shower.
