The Saint Louis Soap Company
I sometimes receive requests from people who ask me to try a new food, give a recipe a whirl and have now even been asked to edit a cookbook, but this was a first. Kyle Jackson, owner of The Saint Louis Soap Company contacted me and asked me if I'd like to sample a few of his soaps. He says (and they are) PETA approved, which I think maybe led him to me. I have a particular interest in anything lavender, so I happily received a full size bar of that and then some perfect little samples of Activated Charcoal, Peppermint and Tea Tree Oil.
Months later and I am now through all four bars. Yes, it took me this long to get through them all, which I think is a real testament to the quality (at least in my mind), and I used them in the shower and not just for the daily hand washes; these bars were covering a lot of real-estate every day! I was particularly surprised because each bar, no matter the scent were all equally foamy, which, again, in my mind would think of them to diminish in size a lot faster than they actually did.
The scent on all four were good, not overly strong at all. The charcoal had nearly no scent, though you don't use it for the scent... It was a really nice experience to have my shower filled up every day with these scents (ahhhhh.... lavender!), however, I don't want to walk around all day wafting of of them (or any scent, really), so I was pleased with the softened scent that really did not stick.
And, I'm a bit of a lotion freak, I use it probably more than I should. I decided to see how my skin would react after Kyle's soaps and I went lotion free. I initially found myself grabbing the lotion out of habit, but then really looked at my skin and I could see that I really did not need it. I did not feel greasy or oily, really, just normal. Huh!
I would recommend these soaps to anyone looking to change things up a little. There was not one thing I did not like about the products I received (you really must try the lavender!) and I think you'll really enjoy them too.
