I'm actually not fancy, but I did invest in what I consider fancy soap this January, and grateful I am!
I've been a body wash gal since my teen years, and my skin is always super dry in the winter. One of my favorite bloggers, Simcha Fisher, has occasionally shared about her friend Robin's soap shop on Etsy. Because everything you read on the Internet is true, and because I trust Simcha, I finally broke down and ordered some. As people who typically buy the cheapest soap we can find at Sam's Club, spending $5 a bar seemed preposterous to me.
However, I thought I'd splurge on a little treat for myself early in January since I was starting a new 6 a.m. wake up routine. I was hoping a little soap delight would help me stumble toward the shower with my eyes still shut.
I ordered four bars - Home Sweet Home Goat Milk, Blackberry Sage Goat Milk, Lilac Love, and Patchouli Lavender. I only have the lavender left to try and I've loved them all! I will definitely be ordering again!
My skin is noticeably less gross, and the soaps smell divine. When I first unpacked them our entire bathroom and bedroom were beautifully fragrant. I go for the big bars, not the cutesy shaped ones, because I'd probably hoard them and never use them, and also because I'm not fancy.
If you're looking to treat yourself and your skin, I'd recommend trying some of this wonderful handmade soap. It makes me want to try making my own when I grow up, but I know better than to think I'll actually accomplish that.
