Tuesday Treat! - My Soap

I was lucky enough to win a Twitter comp a few weeks ago that was run by the lovely My Soap, a company making luxury handmade soaps using the traditional cold process method. They use all natural ingredients and their soaps contain no synthetic fragrances, SLS, detergents or commercially manufactured soap bases and are not tested on animals. Can't say fairer than that! The fact that these soaps are completely natural, packed with great ingredients like shea butter and coconut oil means they're great for the most sensitive of skins and I can honestly say they feel great. I like to use handmade soap rather than liquid soap for handwashing, but my skin (which is or the most part very well behaved and not normally dry) feels a little tight afterwards, but not after I'd used this. 

My Soap kindly sent me three slices of their marbled soap range.

L-R - Cool Fresh Aloe, Summer Citrus, Gobi Gold

I couldn't wait to get them open and smell them, but these soaps have very little fragrance - actually really nice! I do usually go for scent over anything else when choosing soap and bath products (having good skin helps as I don't have to take that into consideration) but sometimes when washing my hands or having a bath I don't want to be overpowered with scent the whole day. It also means I can also use them on my boys (who are 4 and 1) and as they're so gentle I don't have to worry about their skin either. The Gobi Gold (red) soap I tried first now has pride of place on my bathroom sink, and it's not drying my hands out when I wash them either.

My Soap launched their website last Monday, and though the marbled soaps I have are no longer available there are lots of other yummy sounding goodies to try. I'm loving the look of the Fresh Orange Butter and the Goat's Milk and Honey naked soap.

You can follow My Soap on Twitter here (they often run competitions and giveaways!) and their facebook is currently under construction! Well worth a look :) I know what's going on my Christmas list!

What will you treat yourself to this week?

  1. They look great! I love special soaps like that, my favorite is a cucumber type! Love it! :D

  2. Ooh cucumber soap sounds lovely and refreshing :) I like to use cucumber products on my face to cool it down.
