Dr. Squatch Review: Organic Soap to Smell Like a Man

Most soaps for men contain harsh cleaning chemicals that technically qualify as detergent. Since you’re not a dish or a piece of clothing, your skin is probably more dry and coarse than it should be.

In this review, we test a selection of Dr. Squatch all-natural soaps to see if they’ll help you feel less like a plate, and more like a man.

Bottom line: Dr. Squatch fills a need for organic, masculine soap in a positive way. Featuring fresh scents and natural ingredients, the soaps nourish your skin effectively and smell great. After a week of use, my skin is already less dry and flaky.

Pros:
  • All-natural soap without harmful additives
  • Great selection of scents
  • My skin feels less dry
  • Soap subscription service is handy

Cons:

  • Price point may be high for som

The colder months are quickly approaching.

Sweaters, cuddling, hot chocolate, and snow evoke feelings of warmth, safety, and love.

For me though, the cold months come with a bitter caveat—dry skin. The temperature drops, the humidity all but disappears, and my skin decides to try its hand at making snowflakes.

I’m not kidding. I can rub my hand against my arm a few times and create a mini blizzard.

Thus, when I came across this meme on Instagram, my curiosity was piqued:

Dr. Squatch

However, this isn’t an article about heart-warming American Dream stories. This is about putting Dr. Squatch through the gauntlet.

Does this natural soap have what it takes to clean, nourish your skin, and leave you feeling like a man?

Things to Consider Before Buying Soap from Dr. Squatch

For guys, it’s a matter of price. $7 for a bar of soap might seem expensive.

I mean come on, you can get a 12 pack of Irish Spring bar soap for $5 at Walmart. That being said, Irish Spring will probably have you looking like Deadpool sooner than you want.

Dr. SquatchDr. Squatch also provides peace of mind. You’re treating your skin to natural, healthy cleaning, and investing in the future of your skin.

You’ve all seen him before. He’s fifty but looks thirty. The ladies swoon over him and you’re wondering how the heck he does it. Here’s the secret.

Not only that, but, Dr. Squatch is made in the U-S-of-A, baby. If you’re passionate about supporting American businesses, the $7 price point may not look so bad.

Dr. SquatchSpeaking of which, the bars of soap are big. Like, make you feel like a man when you pick them up, big.

Dr. Squatch bar soap is packaged using recycled materials because caring for Mother Earth is the manly, modern thing to do.

So, while a $7 investment is daunting at face value, there is some value packed in.

As an added bonus, if you end up liking Dr. Squatch bar soap, they offer a subscription service. You can save ~15% on your soap, and hours going to the store to buy it.

The Sign Up Process: Choosing the Right Bar Soap

I began my foray into organic soap by taking Dr. Squatch’s Soap Quiz.

It’s eight questions long, only two of which seem to relate to recommending soap. (“What would you do if you met the Squatch?”, for example.) Each question comes with a fun gif to make it worth your time.

Dr. Squatch

At the end, I was given three bar soap recommendations. I was also given the option to save 25% on my total order.

I picked up four bars of soap and a bottle of their shampoo. I want this to be a comprehensive review, don’t I?

I chose the scents Nautical Sage, Cedar Citrus, Pine Tar, and Cool Fresh Aloe. For shampoo, they only have one option, which is Cypress Coast.

Unboxing

In roughly a week the soaps were on my doorstep. The packaging itself was barebones, but the smell made up for it. You open that box up and get slapped by essential oils, in the best way.

I appreciate this—it helps you know exactly what you’re getting into.

Dr. Squatch

The soap bars are packaged in rugged, simple cardboard. The design isn’t trying to be flashy or sophisticated—just manly.

The packaging clearly states the ingredients, and details the special inclusions in each bar. For example, Cedar Citrus is made with oatmeal to give a gentle exfoliation.

Dr. Squatch

I never would have gone looking for soap with oatmeal, but seeing its inclusion gave me the sense that this was no ordinary bar of soap.

Keeping the ingredients front and center reaffirms that this is organic, all-natural soap.

Dr. Squatch Bar Soap Review

Does Dr. Squatch live up to its lofty claims? Do I currently smell like a champion?

Dr. Squatch

I came in skeptically, but within a week of using the Cedar Citrus Bar Soap, my skin felt noticeably healthier.

Dr. Squatch

As I mentioned in my introduction, when it gets even dry and cold, my arms usually flake like crazy.

The oatmeal exfoliated away my dead skin cells, while natural oils helped to clean and hydrate my skin.

The soap lathers well, but doesn’t get used too quickly. I’ve used bar soap for years, and was always frustrated that a good lather came at the expense of the bar being used in two weeks.

Dr. Squatch

After a week, the Cedar Citrus barely shows signs of use. It may be more accurate to refer to these as bricks of soap. You could build a house with these bad boys.

Cedar Citrus is my favorite, but I can confirm that the other scents lather just as well.

Another peeve of mine is when bar soap smells good, but doesn’t transfer that smell to your skin. Dr. Squatch’s natural oils and shea butter nourish your skin and basically infuse you with essential oils.

Dr. Squatch

I was genuinely surprised how good I smelled after showering. I expect to smell clean and fresh, but not like I had just put cologne on. My wife is a fan, too

Overall, I’m a huge fan of these soap bricks. Here’s a little more info on each one I got:

Pine Tar

Dr. Squatch

  • Special Ingredients: Oatmeal and sand help to exfoliate dead skin cells.
  • Scent: Fresh pine sap and citrus

Cedar Citrus

Dr. Squatch

  • Special Ingredients: Oatmeal and orange essential oils help to exfoliate and invigorate tired skin.
  • Scent: Fresh cut wood and a pile of lemons

Nautical Sage

Dr. Squatch

  • Special Ingredients: Sage and cypress essential oils combine for incredibly fresh scents.
  • Scent: An open ocean breeze

Cool Fresh Aloe

Dr. Squatch

  • Special Ingredients: Aloe extract and shea butter make this soap a moisturizing powerhouse.
  • Scent: A fresh spring morning

Dr. Squatch

A pet peeve of mine is when a bar soap smells good, but it doesn’t transfer that smell to your skin. I’m a big fan of these soaps (especially the Cedar Citrus) because the natural oils and shea butter nourish your skin and infuse it with essential oils.

Dr. Squatch Shampoo Review

Dr. Squatch’s shampoo comes in a surprisingly small bottle. With a hefty price tag of $20, I wanted to make sure it was good to the last drop.

Dr. Squatch

Cost aside for a second, the Cypress Coast shampoo smells incredible. It smells like all the best parts of a crisp gin and tonic. I know that sounds weird, but trust me.

Despite being a small quantity, the shampoo goes a long way. I have thick, dense hair. Like, to the extent that every hairdresser I’ve ever had has commented on it.

Dr. Squatch

Point being, I need a lot of shampoo to thoroughly clean my hair.

That is, until I used the Squatch. With just a quarter-sized dollop, I can lather up my hair into a Ferris Bueler-style mohawk.

The lather feels different than any other shampoo I’ve used. Rather than just feeling thick and soapy, my hair feels invigorated, and my scalp tingly. I’m not sure what ingredients in the shampoo lead to this unique feeling, but I’m a big fan.

Dr. Squatch

The shampoo leaves my hair feeling soft and squeaky clean. Other reviewers claim that the shampoo makes your hair thicker and fluffier, but I can’t confirm this point. I’m pretty sure it’s not possible for my hair to get any more dense.

Dr. Squatch recommends only shampooing your hair two to three times per week. Shampooing too much will cause your hair to become dry and brittle, and likely cause your scalp to flake.

In addition, the brand gives washing instructions for curly and straight hair.

If your hair is curly it’s recommended to wash your hair once a week, sometimes less. If you have straight hair, you can increase to two to three times a week. The natural oils from your scalp work through straight hair faster than curly, causing straight hair to look dirty faster.

Dr. Squatch

This made me feel better about dropping $20 for a small bottle of shampoo. The fact that a little shampoo goes a long way, and you only use it a few times a week means it should last a good while.

Dr. Squatch

Anytime you pay this much for an 8 oz. bottle of shampoo, you’re going to have questions. My questions were answered with just how far it goes when you use only the recommended quarter-size dollop, 2-3 times per week. But the real saving grace? It smells and feels fantastic.

What do Other Reviewers Say About Dr. Squatch?

With over 15,000 reviews, Dr. Squatch has built up a solid 4.3/5 star rating on Amazon for its most popular product, the Pine Tar Soap.

Long story short, a lot of dudes love the Squatch.

Some reviewers cited issues with shipping and customer service. However, keep in mind that many of these reviews were written during the height of the pandemic when many companies have struggled to fulfill the deluge of online orders.

It’s fairer to say some of those issues were a product of the times—plenty of other reviewers had positive experiences with shipping and customer service.

My Thoughts Overall on Dr. Squatch

What I Like

  • It’s organic, and I’m no longer putting harsh chemicals on my skin and in my hair.
  • My skin is already more soft and nourished.
  • The soap and shampoo smell incredible and last a long time.
  • It’s made in the USA.

What I Don’t Like

  • Some may find the jump to natural soap and shampoo a bit pricey.

Who is Dr. Squatch For?

Dr. Squatch is a great choice for guys who want to ditch harmful chemicals and treat their skin to nourishing, manly soap.

The Verdict

Put simply, Dr. Squatch makes good soap.

With healthy natural oils, shea butter, and essential oils, your skin will be thanking you in no time. It smells great and lasts long, which are also almost as rare as the Squatch in the world of soap.

You can certainly find cheaper men’s soaps and shampoos, even organic ones. However, Dr. Squatch has cornered the market on organic, masculine-smelling bath products.

If you’re looking to treat your skin, your hair, or even your significant other with your good smell, Dr. Squatch is an excellent choice.
