How To Smell Like A Sith Lord

Dark Side Scrub
Dr. Squatch (2023)
What kind of nerd buys limited edition Star Wars soap?  The same kind of nerd who starts out a blog post with the word "greetings", that's who!

You've got to respect the commitment to the gimmick here.  The ingredients of this soap include chokeberries, which may or may not help you to express how disturbed you are by someone's lack of faith.  Lord Vader might find the use of this berry to be appealing, however I don't think he would approve of the sand, which can be coarse and rough.  Thankfully, the sand in this soap isn't irritating and it doesn't get everywhere... unless you take the wet bar out of the shower.

There are three other bars in this line of Star Wars soap, including products inspired by Darth Maul, Obi Wan Kenobi and Yoda.

The color of this bar had me wondering if they had mistakenly packaged the Darth Maul soap in the Darth Vader box.  I don't think that's the case, but the red and black would have gone perfectly with the horned villain of The Phantom Menace.

As for the product itself, I must say that if you think my food and movie reviews are half-assed, you're in for a treat because I'm about to limbo under even the lowest bar of expectations.  It's square, it smells nice, and it got me clean, so... two thumbs up?
