There is nothing better than a fragrant bar of soap to lift your spirits in the shower. Of course, it’s made better when the beauty bar you are using is one made of 100% virgin olive oil.
An anti-inflammatory and high in antioxidants, virgin olive oil in skincare, is an ingredient that is nourishing to skin in need of moisture. I had the opportunity to try Olivita’s Virgin Olive Oil Artisan Soaps ($5.99), specifically the Uplifting Turkish Bath and Blissful Green Apple scents.
Both bars are relatively small, 3.5 ounces or slightly bigger than a facial bar of soap. Although small in size, they certainly last a good long time when you take care of them (i.e. don’t leave them out sitting in water.) My two bars lasted about 3 weeks each (although the website does say they should last for 2 months.) Then again, there were 6 of us using the bars of soap, so that could account for why our bars lasted less time than the website states. It was difficult to decipher between the two scents, as they both smelled relatively the same–crisp and clean. Definitely rich in fragrance and smelled so good!
Skin was more supple after use and it left a very light fragrance behind on the skin. Have you tried any of Olivita’s Virgin Olive Oil Beauty Bars?
