I recently saw an article online that said that households in the UK are often judged by the type of soap they use. I've never been Across The Pond, and I don't know if that's true.. but if it is, I've found a really nice soap that should impress your family and friends.
Fleur D'Extase has created a set of 9 different soaps, each made with all natural ingredients, Triple-milled, and scented with different natural plant and flower oils. These are not tested on animals, and they are free from parabens, ethyl alcohol, phenoxyethanal and DEA.
Together in the box, they have that scent I associate with French soap - clean, slightly floral. Individually, they each have a different scent, like rose, vanilla, or lavender.
I love samplers like this - lots of different scents to try! Each soap is 25 grams - perfect for guest or hand soaps. We normally use liquid soap for our hands, but I like to keep bar soaps for the guest bathroom. They are perfect for giving guests a fresh bar of soap in the shower, like a hotel experience. When my parents visit, my father wants bar soaps for his hands, so we always have a few different kinds on hand for him to try.
Though they are small, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that they performed really well in the shower. I love to have a variety of soap in the shower - always at least one bar soap, and a few different shower gels or jellies to use, depending on my mood. I expected these to be short-lived, but they have held up really well. They aren't melty like some natural soaps are - the triple milling really gives them a firm texture that holds up well to repeated uses.
I love bath products, and would love receiving something like this as a gift, but these are also perfect for that gift closet some of us have - you know, where we keep a few nice gifts to have on hand for a surprise invitation to a housewarming, or when your child forgot to tell you that they need a small gift for their teacher.
For more information, or to purchase, you can find this Fleur D'Extase soap sampler on Amazon, where it currently retails for $9.95.
