Real Soaps is a company out of Chicago making handmade soaps and natural body care products. They don’t use any sulphates, parabens, phthalates and are cruelty-free. They also have no dyes, preservatives, or artificial ingredients and only pure essential oils for scents. I found them on Etsy but they also have a website. You can buy individual soaps or they have six and twelve-month plans starting at $47.00 and shipping to Canada was under $20 for the whole term. I’m not sure why I’m on a soap kick lately but they are fun to get.
There was a little note tucked into the envelope this month. It turns out that the USPS lost a whole bunch of things and February’s soap was part of that. This month gives us two soaps and a bonus item for any inconvenience.
February’s soap is a Rosemary & Lavender blend. It has antimicrobial, antiseptic, and anti-inflammatory properties. It is also calming and relaxing. It smells great and I will be using this one. March gives us Oatmeal & Lavender. It is softer in scent than the first one and the oatmeal softens hair and removes itchiness. The included card also says that you can use this to wash your beard if you have one.
The bonus lip balm that they included is Clary Sage, Lemon, and Lavender. It smells a touch medicinal but it feels very nice on my lips and I think it’ll make them soft and healthy.
I am always looking for bath type products and soap is such an easy way to shake up your routine. I tend to not share these with my family but it I find a scent that is too strong or not to my liking then I give it to my hubby who is less picky. That won’t be happening with this one!
