New Soap

I got my soap from althaea yesterday. Since my skin tends to the dry side, I opted for a few bars of "MisterX's Angry Skin Soap" on althaea's recommendation. The bars were just made earlier this week and are supposed to "age" for 2 or 3 weeks to achieve optimal quality before being used. However, they're perfectly usable right now and I couldn't wait to try it out. Since I have a few bars, I thought I'd let some of them age and go ahead and jump the gun on trying a bar, even if it is a little premature.

I am so glad I didn't wait -- I love this soap. My skin feels better than it ever has felt in a long time. I even washed my face with it and it feels great. I never would have thought that a guy would get this excited over soap. But, here I am, loving my new soap.

I was a little wary when I noticed that the ingredients included coconut. Frequent readers of my blog know that I'm no fan of coconut. I'm happy to report that the predominant smell of this soap is not coconut. In fact, I can't pick out a distinct coconut scent at all. Perhaps the scent is blending with other scents and is disguised. Perhaps it's simply overpowered by the other scents. Whatever the case, I'm glad my soap doesn't smell like coconut. And if there are wonderful skin-healing powers in the coconut, this soap is the perfect delivery system for it -- I can get the benefits without having to smell it.

If you want some high-quality hand-made soap, I highly recommend checking out what althaea has to offer: check out her store at http://www.althaea.biz.

Oh wow those look nice. I'm currently running an experiment on my skin--I'm going a couple months where I use all-natural (specifically, Burt's Bees brand) skin care and makeup products, then I'm going to switch back to Neutrogena products for a couple months, so I can see if there's a difference--and I don't want to introduce any variables into it, otherwise I'd snap up a couple bars. If she's still selling them in a couple months, I'll definitely get some.

I'm a Burt's Bees user! I got a cake of the bay rum shaving soap and a mug/brush over a year ago and I'm still using the same one.

Soap for angry skin...I think I might need this. Can you give status updates as time goes on? I might be buying a bar or 20, if this stuff works.

I'll be happy to give you updates as time goes on. Feel free to ping me for an update if time goes on and I don't provide an update.

I never would have thought that a guy would get this excited over soap.

Neither would I until I read this post...

Absolutely. Check back with me in about a month if you'd like a testimonial after some usage. I really do enjoy the soap!
