Not all soaps are created equally, but there is something about holding a solid bar to wash your hands and or body with that I love.
I have very dry skin so as with all my skincare, I am careful with the soap that I use but thanks to my sister I have been introducted to the Fresh range of soaps. This little boutique in Marylebone is a real find for skincare. One of my favourite products is the Linden Soap
Firstly look at the way it has been packaged. Gorgeous thick vintage paper, secured with a wire and a little semi-stone. The fragrance comes through the paper… but once you open the pakage, the beautiful floral slightly sweet fragrance comes through. Linden is a type of Lime (not the citrus fruit) Tree. The fragrance is not citrussy is sharp.
You get a mahoosive bar which lasts for ages. I like the fact that it is a solid no nonsense bar of soap and not a pretty pretty delicate bar. It is hard working and leaves the skin beautifully fragranced.
It is a triple milled, vegetable based soap with added shea butter. I do not find that it leaves my skin very dry but of course I always moisturise after use, whether I use it on my hands or my body.
If you are a soap fan, or know someone who is, have a look at Fresh. They do goid soaps.
