Handmade soap has to be one of my favorite things ever! I was introduced to handmade soap about a year ago by a friend and have purchased it ever since. So any time I get to try a new product I'm thrilled!
The Joy of Soap is a shop with some really wonderful soap. This is what is on their front page:
This is a company intent on being "Green". They use the finest all-natural ingredients they can find for their soaps. Use recycled materials for shipping, the soaps are wrapped in 100% cotton muslin bags, even their printer and label provider is a certified green company in the state of California.
I was sent 5 different soaps to try. Ginger Snap, Lay Me Down Lavender, Feeling Frisky, Two in the Shower Tea Tree, and Elizabeth's Wild Hair Shaving Soap. Don't you love the names? :) When I picked up the package at the post office I could smell the soap before I even opened it. I'm sure the women at the post office where wondering what I was getting :) The school bus smelled so nice! Luckily I hadn't taken a shower yet and could try one of the soaps right away. I closed my eyes, dug into the box and picked Ginger Snap.
This soap smells so nice. I don't like really strong scented soaps, so I was happy that these soaps have a nice medium strong scent. Lavender is not one of my favorite scents, especially if it overpowers everything around it. But the Lavender scented soap I received is actually quite nice. I don't mind it at all. The soap lathers nicely & cleans well. One bar will last quite a while which is important to me. There is nothing worse then purchasing a bar of soap & have it disappear after only 6 showers.
The Joy of Soap has wonderful individual packaging for their soaps. Each little bag is labeled with the name of the soap plus the ingredients. I've been using this soap for 3 weeks now and still really like it. The shaving soap is really nice! Shaving is not one of my favorite things to do, but I go for a massage once a month - so it has to be done :) This soap makes it a much more pleasant task, don't have to worry about nicks or dried out skin. I would definitely recommend this soap to my friends.
