MSC Skin Care Bourbon Vanilla and Oak Soap

MSC Bourban Vanilla and Oak Soap #review #bathandbody

I am a huge fan of artisan bar soaps. Don’t get me wrong, I like shower gels, creams and washes, but there is just something about an artisan bar soap that is so much more appealing. For me it almost feels more personal and luxurious.

Combine a great bar soap with an incredible scent and it’s almost impossible to get me out of the shower – an issue that I’ve been dealing with since I started using MSC Skin Care Bourbon Vanilla and Oak Bar Soap.  MSC Skin Care + Home produces bath, body and home products that are all handmade in Brooklyn, NY and features an assortment of custom fragrance blends.  Read more

Soaps from Bath and Body Bliss

Do you remember a long time ago when Garden Botanika made their seaweed soap? Gosh I loved that soap and I have been on the hunt for something similar for a while, which is how I originally came across Bath and Body Bliss. The owner let me know that she made a seaweed soap and it happened to be on sale, so I thought why not?

When I received my products, and the extra goodies she threw in there, I almost didn’t want to take anything out of the packaging. Everything was so decorative and had that Prim Country look to it. It crossed my mind to just sit a few soaps out for display, that’s really how pretty everything looked.

I crossed my fingers and hoped that the soap was just as good as the pretty packaging. The Seaweed Soap smelled so nice and you could just feel from the bar that this soap would just glide across your skin. The Seaweed Soap is made of kelp, sage, chamomile and is scented with sage and rosemary essential oils. I loved that this soap was mildly abrasive, exfoliating my skin nicely, while creating a great lather. This soap felt wonderful.

I also purchased another bar of soap, called the Seaside Spa Bar. This was another exfoliating soap with essential oils, butters, aloe vera juice, french green clay, kelp and flaxseed. This soap scrubbed a little bit harder than the Seaweed Soap and the seeds do become loose and stick to our skin. However, despite the seeds coming out of the soap with each use, I would really recommend this soap for people with really dry skin or stubborn dry patches.

For the kids I got them the Bubble Yum Soap, which really smells like bubblegum and has lasted the longest of all of the soaps. It seems to be a bit bigger and thicker. When I first received it, it smelled like my other soaps, but as it spent a day on its own wooden stand in the shower, that bubblegum smell really came to life. The boys really look forward to using it each day, which is good because then I know my boys are finally taking the time to get themselves clean.

Have you tried this indie brand?
