I bet you think this is me pleading for a spa treatment including massage after the week I've had. Well, yes that would be nice but that isn't what this post is about. Actually, with all that has been happening this post was put to the back burner so to speak for a week or so. About a month ago I was fortunate enough to win some soap(pictured above) from Melissa over on her Pamper Me Please blog which you should check out here. This soap is a Cold Process Lavender Soap and I have to be honest I don't really know what that means but this soap is divine! I finally was able to use it (and no that doesn't mean I haven't bathed) yesterday and today. The smell is wonderful although isn't lavender meant to be relaxing? Maybe that was why I almost fell asleep shaving my legs. Oh and that is another thing, I've used other handmade soaps before but one thing I did notice with this one is when I shaved there wasn't much discomfort. Here is what I mean, I live in Vegas, I sit by the pool so obviously the bikini area needs to be seen to. Normally, no matter what type of soap or razors I've used, I always seem to get irritated in that area. With this soap there was absolutely no irritation at all and I think I actually got an even closer shave under my arms too. Sorry if that is too much information but at least I haven't posted pics!
Melissa has a shop over on Etsy, so make sure you check it out here. She has a lovely collection of soaps, bath bombs and crocheted items. I have my eye on the Rainbow Kitchen Scrubber, very clever idea. I know I'll be back for more and thanks again Melissa.
