Joy of Soap Review and Giveaway

So everyone is getting into the all natural feel of things. There are just so many chemicals and additives in anything now days; you never know what you are using.  
The Joy of Soap was created as a result of my many years spent traveling for work, which can be fun and exciting but hard on your skin. I always had trouble finding soaps that were not full of skin-drying chemicals and ultimately decided the way to get the finest possible soap was to start making my own using natural ingredients and old fashioned craftsmanship. From this The Joy of Soap was born.
 

All  soaps begin with a base of olive, coconut, palm and castor oils, and are mixed with delicious fragrance oils. Some of our soaps also contain therapeutic grade essential oils, an exfoliant and/or a natural colorant. Soaps are hand cut so the exact weight of each bar may wary slightly.They come packaged in a small burlap type sack and are great for adding to any pampering Mother's Day gift basket.

I was lucky enough to get to try All Night AlmondPerky Peaches, Elizabeth's Wild Hair Shaving Soap, and Two in the Shower Tea Tree. To my shock I was also sent a very neat black soap dish which is sitting on my bathroom sink. I have to say the Elizabeth's Wild Hair and the Tea Tree are my favorite. My husband loves the tea tree too. The perky Peaches sits at my bathroom sink and I have gotten several compliments from guests. Joy of Soap charges $3.50 for 2oz and $7.50 for the 5oz bars. 


Joy of Soap will also be launching there Scrubs, Cleansers, and Creams lines this spring so be on the look out for these. Want to learn more about their Green Commitments and keeping things natural, head over here and read up on it.
