Soap Dodgers – Ditching Gel for Old-fashioned Bars
I recently stayed over at a friend’s home and noticed that she had a lovely collection of soaps in her bathroom. Not only did they look good, they smelt amazing. I have been using shower gels for the longest time and me and the boys go through them at such a crazy pace and it can get pricey.
Growing up, my mum always bought imperial leather for her family of five but it is heavily perfumed and not very moisturising. However, the bars lasted for a long time so really cost effective, which got me thinking.
I decided to see what was on the market, found some lovely soaps and now I am a total convert. No more soap dodging for me!
Here are a few beauties I have found and tried out just for you!
Heyland & Whittle
I love this luxury soap. It’s soft on the skin but still has that zing which must be the prosecco. Already moulded for smooth use without having to breakdown the edges. Very important!
Crabtree & Evelyn
I absolutely love this soap – it’s creamy and moisturising and feels luxurious. Crabtree & Evelyn are one of my favourite brands – I love their hand creams too.
Faith In Nature
This is a proper handmade rustic soap. No muss no fuss. Its free of parabens, and does the job. Lashings of lavender – absolutely lovely.
This surprisingly made my skin a little dry and, if I am honest, a bit itchy! It does says it is an emollient and has soothing properties so it may have been just my experience. It smells quite medicinal and lathers well.
