Limited Edition

Buffing Bar

Microcrystal Exfoliant

  • for body
  • net wt 3.75 oz (2)
  • fragranced

Same award-winning formula as our blue Buffing Bar, but “New Spice.” The limited-edition fragrance is a nostalgic, warm cologne. Inviting top notes of powdered cinnamon with juicy, fresh cedar smell almost fruity, like sweet cider. Then, clean musk—like nuzzling a lush blanket of chest hair. The slight almond extract is actually tonka bean. If pumpkin spice had a father, this is how he would smell.

This formula is vegan.
Soft Services does not test on animals.

Use in the shower on clean, wet skin. Wet the bar, and use gentle pressure to buff in small, circular motions on parts of your body you wish to smooth (avoid sunburned, broken out, or otherwise irritated skin).

You control the power—use firmer pressure on rough spots like heels and elbows, but be gentle on other areas of the body. Rinse, pat dry, and follow with a gentle moisturizer like Carea Cream.

Use weekly, or as often as needed.

      So good! I saw this on tiktok and was finally convinced when I saw it came in a spice scent for the season. I’ve never used a buffing bar before and was hesitant since I have very sensitive skin. My skin post shower is smooth without being red or dry. I like that it’s still a soap so there’s a bit of give that doesn’t make it too abrasive and you can easily control how rough it is by the amount of pressure you use. The scent is also really nice and I’ll be sad once it’s gone.

      Immediate results! I truly can't believe how quickly I have seen results from using this product. I've had bumpy skin on my arms and legs for years and no exfoliant or moisturizer has been able to do what this bar has done in just a week. My arms are totally smooth and the bumps on my legs have improved significantly. I will be a customer for life!

      I really liked this product. It has all the great qualities of the regular buffing bar, but has a bright orange color and a nice subtle scent. The scent smells like spices and reminded me of a warm autumn hug 🥺. I used it for the first time showering before bed, after being outside on a cold rainy autumn day, and it instantly made me feel warm and cozy. I think the bright orange color is fun too, I liked washing it off and seeing the orange suds go down the drain. *This person tested a sample pre-launch.

      Wow!! I genuinely adore the scent of New Spice and could not be more impressed. It is both tasteful and absolutely delicious. It is fresh, genderless, beautifully balanced and reminds me of woodland aerosols and sunshine on a beautiful day. It is not at all perfumy, cloudy, or condescendingly "musky" like so much stuff out there. I hope you create an iteration of Comfort Cleanse in this scent, or, dare I say it, its own fragrance!! *This person tested a sample pre-launch.

      Absolutely love this new scented bar and I love how Soft Services elevates the shower experience without the fuss! Here, they took their already incredible workhorse of a bar and added the SS version of a classic dove "clean" scent. Inarguably pleasant! *This person tested a sample pre-launch.

      THIS BAR BUFFS. Nothing else compares! The latest New Spice scent includes notes of tonka beans, cinnamon and musk, but they do not overwhelm, instead offering a feeling of warmth and comfort in the shower. *This person tested a sample pre-launch.

      The new spice buffing bar is a generous second option to the already perfect blue bar. The scent isn't strong nor does it linger but it is so reminiscent of your dad's Irish Spring bar soap with the zesty tonka whiffs. I prefer that the scent doesn't last outside of the shower as to not clash with whatever other products I use with fragrance. May be slightly less gritty than blue bar (need to test further) but still gets the job done! Elevates it to be a great lil gift for a sig other ;) Would like to see a third scent. *This person tested a sample pre-launch.

      I am extremely impressed and pleased with this scented version of the buffing bar. At first I was a bit worried that the scent might be too strong, but to my surprise it was just perfect, the scent is exactly as it is, spicy but clean, it elevated my mood while using it in the shower. I would love to see more scented versions in the future. I'm gonna need to place an order of 1000 pieces lol *This person tested a sample pre-launch.

      As a longtime user of the buffing bar, I was excited to use the new scented one. It has a light scent that smells clean and quietly luxurious. As someone who can be sensitive to scent, I didn't mind this at all. *This person tested a sample pre-launch. Soft Services products were provided as compensation for their honest review.

      Another MVP from Soft Services. If you’re new to fragrance in your body care products, this scented buffing bar is a great introduction. What smells like a mix of floral, woody and…dare I say, apple pie(?) is quite lovely and really inoffensive. Because it’s a wash-off product, I had no irritation with it whatsoever. It’s a welcome addition to my shower lineup. *This person tested a sample pre-launch. Soft Services products were provided as compensation for their honest review.

      The new buffing bar feels great against my skin, and the new scent makes the experience even better! I feel like I'm loving on my skin when I use the buffing bar to get rid of all the dirt a day can bring. *This person tested a sample pre-launch.

      I already love the unscented buffing bar so I was excited to try it with a fragrance! I didn't pick up on the tonka, it was very cedar + man musk forward which is a ok by me. The scent didn't really linger on my skin which is fine but it does add a nice freshness ambiently to my bathroom. The thing I love most about the buffing bars is they rinse away so well, compared to other products in the genre. *This person tested a sample pre-launch.

      I would recommend this product to: I would recommend this to anyone who wants gentle physical exfoliation and doesn't like feeling gritty or dealing with weird exfoliator mitts that end up looking mangy in the shower.

      I always avoid fragrance. I'm typically so sensitive (eczema, KP, ingrowns) I can't use anything scented. I also have a history of hating vanilla and musk. So the odds were stacked against New Spice. But I actually loved this buffing bar update. Not only did the added fragrance not irritate my skin (or give me a headache), I think I like musk now. *This person tested a sample pre-launch.
