Stevens skin care has added another product for delicate skin with a new body soap with avocado oil. Adjectives Stevens employs to describe the soap are: "moisturizing, skin softening, creamy lather and lightly scented." The body soap retails for about $1.95 for a 3.5-ounce bar.

Don Russell: "The Stevens body soap is very gentle and a good mild cleansing soap. We especially enjoyed the way Stevens glides right over your skin. Although Stevens is expensive we're sure that this is a timely and helpful product for those who need hypo-allergenic products. We're confident that if used regularly for a week, Stevens should help one's complexion."Nihla Lake: "Stevens body soap left the skin feeling soft and mois turized - noticeably different from our regular soap. High price prohibits regular family use, but for those with severe skin problems it provides a good alternative."

Judy Slack Wilson: "I figured that I would never pay $2 for a bar of soap, but I just might! If I was really in a mood to pamper myself, I'd buy this again. It would be wonderful for bathing a baby. This is mighty fine soap."

Edyth Jensen: "Other than it's atrociously expensive, Stevens seems to be doing a good job for dry skin. Over the summer I developed dry skin and after using the soap for a few days, it seems to be helping. If one used it for a long period of time, I think you'd see a difference."

Linda C. Tingey: "This is very lathery and excellent for my son who has excessively dry skin. He said that his skin wasn't so dry after using it. I'd like to see the results over a longer period of time, but I think the soap is going to be as good as Stevens lotion is."

Rich Firmage: "This lathers real easy. The scent is nice but not overpowering. It feels very nice on my hands. I have sensitive hands, because of some of the workshop materials I work with, and I might buy this again."

Conclusion: At two bucks a whack, you sure won't be letting your kids take this bar for soap carving! While expensive compared to regular soaps, Stevens lives up to and exceeds its claims for moisturizing and softening. If you have dry skin and feel like you're worth it, pamper yourself!
