Once I started wet shaving I was introduced to a whole slew of bath soaps that I did not know existed before. I am currently enjoying Mitchell's Wool Fat bath soap as well as Lavanda Mild and Musgo Real Bath Soap. What bath soaps are you using?

I've been on a Yardley kick since December. First with the English Lavender, followed by the Almond Oatmeal which I didn't like at all, and my latest bar is the Aloe and Cucumber which is great. I've got the large bar of Pomegranite Blossom up next, then the Shea Butter to follow.

I didn't like the Almond because it has a grit to it and it makes me feel like the soap was dropped in a sand box.

Yea...I tend to not like the exfoliating soaps either. It can actually leave you feeling a bit raw.

I've been using the Italian olive oil soap Olivella. Love the scent and really enjoy using olive oil soaps.

As WW mentioned above, I too have been on a Yardley kick. If you don't like the grit from the oatmeal one then also avoid the pomegranate rose as there is some grit there too. Currently I'm using the aloe cucumber and agree that it's fantastic. TWGW recently picked up a bottle of Dr. Bronner castile soap and I used it for the first time this morning. It was pretty good as well.

I've been alternating a bar of Hermes Equipage with an artisan bar scented supposedly to resemble Acqua di Gio (but actually with hardly any scent at all). Waiting in the wings are Roger & Gallet Fougere and Yardley Spice soap-on-a-rope, which I plan to use as a microphone for karaoke singing where no one can hear me.

Right now, it is the Lavanda Triple Alfazema soap - I like it a lot and I am lucky enough to find it locally Smile

[Image: P1030539.jpg]

They had the two versions available: the old package (in the upper side) and the new one (lower side). The soap itself its the same, though.

The Triple Alfazema is next on my list. I really like the "Mild" version.

I use PdP lavender soap and LOVE IT.

after I run out of it, I'm going to try making my own, to see how it compares.

I made a hand soap using a bar of yardley, glycerin and something else that I can't think of at the moment. very soothing on the hands, but it doesn't bubble up well at all.

Lush Cosmetics. I am kind of a Lush for Lush. Any scent that gets my attention, though right now I'm finishing off their "Northern Lights" and then on to my favorite, "Demons in the Dark." Road trip on Sunday to stock up on some supplies!

Valobra "Glycerlanolina"

[attachment=122]

With a classic tallow and coconut oil base, it makes a rich, creamy lather. It is enriched with lecithin and beeswax and has added glycerine and lanolin which is most agreeable with my often dehydrated and sensitive skin.
