Better, is how your hands feel and smell after you use them! You are directed to crumble them and wash with them. I crumbled about 1/3 of one and used it. OH YUM! My hands feel so soft! And they smell even better! I used the Key Lime Pie one. All of my boys (including my husband) said they smell great. Am I lucky or what? Especially in this horrible winter weather where my hands feel like sandpaper! Not anymore.
