I bought 4 Dial soap (soft-soap) pump dispensers at Target because they were on sale. 3 of the 4 had UNUSABLE pumps!!! Total inaction of the pump pop-up function. Joke's on me! This sale just gave me anxiety and anger and the determination never to buy this product again.
On day 1 I noticed redness and dryness. By day 3 I noticed tiny red bumps and severe dryness between my knuckles and tops of hands. My cuticles and finger tips dried out and tear easily. Despite applying lotion on my hands repeatedly throughout the day, my hands felt and looked dry. By day 5 my skin is breaking down and the red bumps sting a little even when I use normal bath soap and lotion. The redness is spreading up my arms. I stopped using the soap and now hoping hydrocortisone cream will help undo all the damage.
So I've never had a problem with soap before, ever, until I came across Dial soap. Bought a two pack of the new formula and figured it was worth a try... Wish I wouldn't have. The next morning after using the soap I had a few red bumps on my arm, only a few and they didn't itch so no worries at first. BUT, by the end of the day my arms were covered shoulder to fingers in an aggressive rash! To give you an idea of how bad this rash was: after two days of ** and antihistamine that should've ended the rash, I was then covered head to toe! All the way from my toes to the tips of my ears. Big red welts that took up more skin than my hair!
After a few days of nothing OTC working, I had to pay a doctor to get examined, then pay for prescription steroids to try and cure it! Doc was actually alarmed at how bad the rash was and almost wanted me to go to Urgent Care that day. Now I've bought Dial's garbage soap, I've also spent an additional $60 in medical fees. Avoid like the plague.
I used Dial antibacterial soap for about a week (until all six bars was gone). I washed my entire body basically with this soap. I notice some itching while using the soap but I always do since it dries the skin out, so didn't think nothing of it. Got to the last bar of soap and noticed my body was breaking out bad with small red itching bumps. After a while these bumps turned into dry patches and peeling. It's like I have developed bad eczema all over. Not to mention I have scars! Hopefully by me using the hydroCortisone and Dove soap again my skin will start to clear up before it gets too nice outside.
I have used Dial Kids Peachy Clean wash on my kids for a long time but this time my son developed red patches all over from it. The reaction was immediate but faded after a couple of hours. He said it didn't hurt so there was no trip to the pediatrician but we watched it closely.

One week ago I washed my face, for the first an only time, with Dial antibacterial foaming hand soap, berry scented. That night I woke in terrible burning, itching pain. I developed a horrible rash with sores all over my face, ears, and into my hairline. This is the first time I've ever had a rash to anything. Now my face is extremely dry and peeling all over. Similar to that of a severe windburn. It's been a week, when will this ever clear up?
It seems like every time I shower with this soap I itch on my arms and legs each time. I purchased Irish Spring liquid soap, I’m trying that in the Morning. Are there other people having the same issue with the itching. It’s very uncomfortable.
I have bought this item in the past. I don't know if it was a bad batch or an angry employee. But it caused burning and a bad rash in our private area. My husband is severely suffering. I did buy it from a dollar store. I don't know if that makes a difference or not.
Got the soap. Started getting welts and rash. On the second day my whole body was covered in a rash. Hand and feet swelled. A lil shortness of breath. My mom figured it was the soap after I told her this was my first time using it. I will never use it again.
First time purchase. Developed severe rash to neck and back after using the product. One Dr video chat with one medical. Two trips to Dr for the severe reaction! Put on steroid cream will take weeks to heal. Every time I took a shower condition got worse. Stay away from this product (Body Wash).
Started using this red and orange Dial soap about February 2018. Almost immediately had small splotchy areas appear and disappear almost all over my body - mostly arms, neck and FEET! Itchy as hell. Calamine Lotion and ** doesn't help at all. I'm going to change soaps today for sure but I guess the irritation will last for a good while. HELP and thanks in advance for your advice!
They had Dial body soaps on sale at my local grocery store so I decided to grab two. I was using new detergent at the time. So when I started breaking out I switched my detergent, no relief so I ended up finding this review page and I now know what's been covering my whole body in this terrible rash and blistering! I've been using this stuff for a week now and I don't sleep well at night. My reaction is so bad. I'm showing my rib cage and arm.
I started using Dial on a regular basis last summer once I began getting abscesses in minor skin wounds. The rash was slow to develop but itched horribly. Now that 8 months have passed and I realized it was the daily use of Dial Soap I've noticed the areas that were affected are extremely discolored as though I used a skin bleach. It's very unattractive and has scarred me permanently. I will be looking into filing for damages. No soap should be this corrosive.
I recently got my industrial pierced along with my second earlobes, and has been using the Dial Gold hand soap to clean it, as recommended by my piercer. The first few days were fine, regarding the pain from the piercing, I hadn’t noticed anything wrong because it was new. It’s been over a week now, and I have the worst rash on my ear. At first I thought that I hadn’t got all of the soap off of my ear, and that’s why it felt very dry and crusty, then as the days went on, the rash has started to spread. First to the rest of my earlobe, and now starting to spread onto my face. It is even starting to happen on my other ear now. I will not be using this soap anymore and will be switching to a saline solution. Hopefully a doctor appointment isn’t needed to get rid of it.
I recently started potty training my toddler son. Of course, I encourage him to wash his hands, each time he goes. The soft soap antibacterial hand soap burned his hands terribly, from using it repeatedly for just one day. I would not recommend using on children at all! Poor baby, his hands are bright red, scaly and very painful.
I used this bar soap for a week and developed a red, painful blister-like rash on my arms and thighs. I have always used Dial soap and this was the first time I had this problem. Beware of the coconut water bar soap.
Used the Lavender Dial bar soap and my body went haywire. I did not have an immediate reaction so it took a while for me to figure out after stressing over my detergent and lotions which all has not changed. The allergic reaction is the most intense experience ever. My reaction consisted of redness, bumps and welts. Utterly painful. Itchy. I have stopped immediately. Saddened to see others on here have had the same reaction.
I bought the lavender bar soap, started getting itching on my back . At first I thought it might be the detergent I used. I bought different detergent, but then saw a rash developing on my arms. I figured it was my comforter. I washed it in hot water. Finally, I saw it showing up on my other arm. I decided to google Dial lavender soap, and saw the first review which is exactly the rash and breakouts that are showing on me. I will definitely be discontinuing using Dial Soap.
I have been buying and using Dial Gold Bar FOREVER! Some time in October, we restocked the Dial gold bar and that's when the problems started. After using everyone in the house broke out with a terrible rash. We changed washing powder, softeners, and dryers sheets. Next we changed lotions. I stopped using perfumes. Finally after taking the kids to the doctor, we changed the soap. We purchased unscented body bar. That has helped tremendously. IDK what Dial has done to the gold bar but please change it back!
Liquid hand soap - Purchased the above product in the 7.5 fluid ounce pump bottle. Several of us in the family have tried unsuccessfully release the pump so we can take the next step which is press the pump to put a little liquid in our hand. Just does not work. This should not be rocket science. Love your dishwashing liquid. Please give us a little help. My wife lost her receipt but she purchased the product today.
I always used the same soap to refill my dispensers, I use the liquid Dial refill bottles (not the foam type). Well when I refilled my bottles later that day the liquid soap turned white and watery inside. Come to find out they use now a new formula and you should not mix it, however never tell the customers on the label. This is terrible and will never purchase a Dial soap again!!! Who knows what kind of chemicals they put in it now and what harm mixing them did.
I recently purchased a package of 8 bars of Dial Corporation soap. This company insults the intelligence of the American Consumer. They carved out at least an ounce of the bar, making it contour in shape. They do this to reduce the amount of ingredients used in the bar and also charge more for the product. Once you use about half the bar (which is now hard to handle due to shape), the bar does NOT suds hardly at all. So they have also reduced the suds ingredient also. About 3/4 through the bar, you will be lucky to get any suds whatsoever. DON'T BUY DIAL SOAP!!!
I actually looked up to see if other people are as annoyed by the curved shape of the Gold bar soap as I am, and they are. Please add me to the list of people who would much rather have the flat bar of soap back that you can actually use up before it breaks! SO ANNOYING. Just charge more instead of trying to fool consumers by carving out a hunk... we are smarter than you think.
I purchased Dial liquid hand soap and after being in the soap dispenser for a few days it turned watery. I never had this problem in the past. I like Dial soap but I won't be purchasing anymore anytime soon.
I love Dial Soap and can't be without it. But you need to change the shape and make it perfectly rectangle all the way around. Right now your bar soap is contour in the middle, so half way through the bar it breaks in half which makes it hard to use and stay in the shower soap dish. There is no reason the contour the bar, just make it straight and it would last longer and be easier to use.
I am very particular about the soaps and shampoos I use for my face and body and am especially careful about the soap I use on my son. I have been using Oil Of Olay soap (Shea butter) ONLY on my face for at least a decade. I am prone to breakouts from anything that dries it out. My son had also been sensitive to certain soaps and I am very particular about what he uses.
I purchased a 'Dial Spring Water' for my son to use and he loved the scent and it works great. I decided to try a couple other formulas and, long story short, we now use them for shampoo, face and body and are thrilled with both the streamlining of shower time and the results of the product! Hair is soft, face is clearer than it had ever been and skin is soft and healthy! Keep up the good work, Dial! These are wonderful products for our household! I purchased them online through the Walmart app, but will be trying to track down some of the scents that they don't carry! Thanks so much for a great addition to our family!
Backstory: A week and a half ago I got a cartilage piercing. It requires great care to prevent infection and the like. The day I got it I purchased some hospital grade antibacterial soap from CVS and all was good. Flash forward a week later and I'm running low (I'd been keeping it aggressively clean in the early days of having it). I've been healing very well with not any problems.
I was in a hurry before work and low on cash so I went to the local Dollar General and bought a bottle of Dial Gold Liquid Hand Soap instead of returning to CVS to buy the soap I'd been using. At first I was using it just to swab the entry points of the piercing. Shortly afterward the area of my piercing started itching like crazy but I didn't think much of it. It's a pretty normal occurrence at this stage of healing. Yesterday (Feb 25, 2017), I did a more thorough cleaning with the Dial and my entire ear became very irritated. Naturally, I've decided to discontinue use and go buy the previous soap I'd been using. I also have a rash on my hands but I'm not sure if it's the Dial or the dish soap we use at work which tends to make me break out as well. All I can say is that I'm very glad I caught it quickly. I would have been very upset if this experience ruined my piercing.
I literally "googled" Dial Corporate Offices to contact someone concerning a rash I incurred all over my face pursuant to using Dial Basics Hypoallergenic soap. There did not seem to be that data available. Thus, I am writing a review. I had hoped maybe someone at Dial might be able to send me another soap without whatever it was that caused the rash on my face. All I believe needs to be done about this soap is to take off the hypoallergenic marketing ploy. I like the soap for all other parts of my body, but a manufacturer cannot advertise hypoallergenic when it is not.
I recently switched to Dial Handsoap, and bought 4 large bottles to use for refilling existing dispensers. Like other people here, my soap turned WATERY!!! Finally, I got so mad I dumped out all 32 oz. of 2 of the bottles. Did I mention you have to use at least 4 pumps of soap to get any kind of hand washing done? No suds... It's like washing hands with light hand lotion! And even though it claims to be moisturizing, it has dried my hands out horribly! The company can say whatever they want, I'm sure they are just cheapening the product. It's all about the bottom line, not the consumer. I was glad to read all these reviews that confirmed everything I had been experiencing too!
I bought this thinking it would be somewhat natural. It smells like I put fragrance plug-ins throughout the house. I double zip locked all the soaps and it still smells through the bags. Taking these fake fragranced poison soaps back to Walmart and trading for another brand that won't cause me to constantly smell fake berry fragrance.
