Lather Up & Raise The Bar

As a self-proclaimed body wash fanatic, I’ve mostly ignored bath soap in any other form, especially bars of soaps but believe it or not the tide has turned and I can now say I am a fan of several body bars. There was a time when I loved one or two but I now find myself a fan of at least four or five different brands. I’ve recently stated my love of Burt’s Bees Shea Butter Conditioning Body Bar – click HERE for a refresher, well here are my other favorites.

Moksa Organics – $6.50

My first introduction to this brand was with their Bohemian Forest body bar – a blend of wintergreen, spearmint, and woodsy aromas. Talk about a pick me up; on days when my body and mind feel unmovable, the Moksa Bohemian Forest was always my go-to “wake me up” soap. The blend of organic coconut oil, olive oil, castor oil, shea butter etc left my skin quite moisturized as well.

Wembe – $8.00

I have mentioned Wembe Soaps quite a few times. I’ve loved the Mango Cleansing Bar, Citric Cleansing Bar, etc but my favorite continues to be the Chocolate Cleansing Bar – the invigorating elements from the oils and butters in this bar will awaken cravings throughout your body. It detoxifies, sooths and stimulates your senses. I mean who doesn’t want to walk around with skin smelling like chocolate.

Thymes – $13.00

I have been a fan of Thymes for as long as I can remember, I don’t think they have a product that I do not like. I’m a bit of a stalker for their body washes and its usually my go to brand but I do love their soaps as well. I usually switch back and forth between Thymes’s soaps and Body washes during the summer months tend to use their more citrus blends for a more invigorating shower experience. My new favorite is their Bergamot Vert (pictured above), a sweet citrus scent that reminds me of light orange sorbet or the scent of  an orange peel. I also slice a sliver off and keep in my draw.

Diptyque Paris – $15.00

Diptyque L’eau Soap is my special occasion soap. It’s what I use if I have a big night like an exciting date, my birthday, etc. The L’eau fragrance was created in 1968 and was the first eau de toilette Diptyque created. It infuses spices and flowers – Cinnamon, Clove, Geranium, Rose, Sandalwood and the scent changes as the day goes on. I always feel sexy when I use this soap and I love the fact that I don’t need to top it off with a perfume. It’s beguiling fragrance is all I need.

So there you have it ladies and gentlemen. These are the bars of soap that is making me revert back to using body bars. Maybe I mentioned a favorite of your or introduced you to what could become your favorite.

Introducing Thymes Agave Nectar

Thymes, maker of some of the most amazingly scented products. In fact, I have several body washes, lotions and colognes from some of my favorite scents from their fragrance-based collections such as Red Cherie, Azur, and Moonflower. This fall, they have added a new favorite which captures more than just the essence of the desert – Agave Nectar.

The Thymes Agave Nectar products, which include Body Lotion, Body Wash, Foaming Bath, Cologne, Hand Creme, Bar Soap, etc,  contains the nourishing and rich hydrating  nectar from the Agave Cactus, Jojoba, Aloe Vera to soothe and heal the skin, a blend of Ruby Red Grapefruit, tangy Guava and lemon blossom to enliven the skin.

 
As with all Thymes products, Agave Nectar is paraben-free and free of other harmful ingredients such as SLES, SLS, propylene glycol, mineral oil, petrolatum and animal-derived ingredients. See below for find out more on Agave Nectar.

While the nourishing and moisturizing factors of Agave Nectar got my attention, it was the scent that captured my soul; while the ingredients are mostly from the desert, I got a tropical bouquet once I breathed the fragrance in which obviously comes from the addition of the guava, lemon and grapefruit. This tropical aroma gives an especially refreshing and awakening feel to your skin with every use.
