Well -- I've found a great alternative for me. It's called Shugar Soapworks and it's a nice size 7 oz. bar. I bought two scents -- Oatmeal & Verbena and Lavender & Vanilla. OH MY GOODNESS -- They smell sooooo good!!! Here is what it says on the back of the box:
Sticking to the basics, Shugar products are free of animal fat, animal by products, harmful chemicals and excessive artificial fragrances. We keep our products simple yet luxurious.
Each of our Shugar soap bars contain a rich blend of pure essential oils, plant-based ingredients and natural fragrances to lift your spirits without the guilt of harming your skin or the environment.
Shugar Soapworks is dedicated to the environment and keeping California green. That's why we don't use any animal fats or plastic in our soaps and keepsake boxes.
Every one of us at Shugar Soapworks believes in the same cause -- to provide you with healthy, clean soap while protecting animals and the environment from unnecessary harm.
I find this so amazing because I visited a store at the Galleria called L'OCCITANE. It had wonderful soaps at very expensive prices. The two bars I purchased were $10 each for an 8 oz. bar.
Of course the soap smelled divine -- yeah right -- it should have for $10 a bar!!!! I tried to savor them to the end because I knew there was no way I was going to buy them "EVER" again. But now I don't have to. I can buy these Shugar bars at $1 a piece -- get twenty bars for twenty bucks and have them for a long period of time.
Normally I don't mind sharing this type of information -- especially since I started this new blog showcasing all the cool things that I run across. In this case, because of where I purchased this item, I was hesitant because it could be "here today and gone tomorrow." Nevertheless, that is what this blog is all about -- I would like for you to "Taste and See How Good It Is" for yourself.
I purchased this product from...
Oh my goodness. Why on earth would they have this product on the shelf? Did they make a mistake? Did they figure out their dire mistake and remove them off the shelf after I made my purchase? They sell the exact same bar on Ebay for $5.25 a box (and that doesn't include shipping) http://www.ebay.com/itm/Shugar-Soapworks-Oatmeal-Verbena-Soap-7oz-Free-Shipping-Made-In-USA-/291029913816 . I don't know -- all I know is that I have got to go back and rack up. Remember, I am sharing this with you -- I will try and leave some on the shelf for you -- and please do the same.
If you would like to give this soap a try -- I would highly recommend it. So here's my Scale from 1-5 -- with 1 being Really Great, 2 being Good, 3 being OK, 4 being Not Good, 5 being I wouldn't use it on my dog if I had one. I would give this Shugar Soapworks a HOT #:
You can thank me later -- now go -- go get your soap!
Until next time...
