I don't know what it is about Tone Island Mist Bar Soap but it is wonderful. I am certain of that. Island Mist has a very exotic and intoxicating scent. A scent similar to an island mixed daquirey with a hint of pine apple. The soap definitely leaves your skin very soft and silky and smooth. It has also helped me with dry skin areas. Although the soap contains cocoa butter, it doesn't have even a small hint of cocoa butter scent. The effects of the cocoa butter still are very obvious in the fact that your skin is left feeling nourished and healthy looking. For me, the island mist is a mini escape plan. It seems to have an aroma therapy effect. It works great for relaxing in the bath prior to bed. It seems to have improved my sleep when I do. Maybe that's just a state of mind more than the actual soap. Either way, overall the soap offers a luxurious lather and a very relaxing scent. Combined with warm water, you've got a quick escape from the monotony of the day. It always leaves my skin looking healthy an feeling squeaky clean with no soap residue on my skin. Scent Probably the best part about the soap is the aroma therapy affects.
