Soapwalla Activated Charcoal & Pettigrain Soap

Soap is nice, and twine is fine, but why does this one get a mention from me?

If you know me, you're likely aware of my love for clean and green beauty. If you're not, read the archives or just Google me. Though I'm all for natural ingredients, handmade products and the like, I have a certain disdain for soap wrapped in twine. Soap is great, twine is fine, but the stereotype is what irks me. Nevertheless, this post is not about twine. It's about soap.

Though I tend to be a liquid soap and pouf girl, (don't judge, it gets so foamy!), I will often be found perusing the heath shop isles in search of a bar for my husband. Not that I'll never have the fastest shower ever (more on that another day), but he likes a bar, and I'll do what I can to keep him away from my ever expnading row of cleansers girl stuff.

I got this soap for him, and I use it. Like, all the time. (If he's reading this, then I only use it occasionally). It smells clean, and lathers nicely, and to be fair to my shallow side, looks really nice in the soap dish. I'm also intrigued by the activated bamboo charcoal aspect, (which is from new growth forests), that, alongside the petitgrain and tea tree, cleanses pores of toxins and bacteria. There's no soapy reside and no marks left on skin. The only thing is trying to wipe the suds off it before I put it back.

With summer eventually showing up, it's the type of soap I'll reach for sneak when I need a good solid scrub. Like after a run, or more likely, a hard day relaxing on the patio.
