I am still undecided on salt bars. I made bar last year that I took with me to Hawaii while it was still pretty young and felt it was too drying to my skin, even with the high humidity in Hawaii. I plan to bring one of those bars with me on our trip in July, so it will be over a year old, and I can make a better assessment of how my skin reacts to it in the same conditions. I'll try it here at home as well. That's a 100% CO salt bar. I have not tried it much since using up that first bar because they require such a long cure, though.
