I don’t normally do this, but when something is exceptional you just have to shout it from the rooftop. And so, if I climbed on the roof of my house, well it wouldn’t really reach that many people, because there is a field behind my house. So the next best thing is tell the people who read my blog, which granted isn’t a huge number, but regardless I have to tell you.
So a couple of years ago I bought some soap from Robin. I read her knitting blog and love watching her adventures in her new state of Ohio. I bought the soap as gifts for some of the girls at work who had gone above and beyond the call of duty, and I kept a couple of bars for myself. But to be honest, I’m just not into personal beauty products. I’m fine with Zest or Irish Spring. But it smelled so good I had to keep a couple of bars to wash my face with. Once I started using her soap though, oh my was I hooked. It lathered wonderfully, smelled divinely, and I don’t know if its because of the soap but I swear I’ve had less blemishes. Although I’ve never been one to have a lot of blemishes. Probably why I’m not that concerned about what kind of soap I use.
Well recently I was running out. And was at our natural dog food store, where we buy the boys food and he had some locally made soap for sale on his counter. I needed a bar, and it wasn’t expensive, $6 (I think), so I gave it a try. It didn’t smell as good, but oh well I thought. So I used it, the first day it was fine. But on the second day, it burned my eyes soooo bad. I thought i had just got some in my eyes on accident. So the next day I was very careful to not go anywhere near my eyes. And it burned even worse! So I wrote Robin to see what she had in stock.
My package came today. Nick got it out of the mailbox and he said, boy you might have to fight me for this soap because it smells so good and I haven’t even opened the box. I told him he could have a bar, i did order 6 which is probably a 5-year supply as long as this stuff lasts! Seriously I’ve used one of her half bars since February. Every day washing my face. See the picture above, that’s what is left, and I still get a great lather out of it!
So I ordered the following: Pineapple Cilantro – I was a little nervous, but since I’m a cilantro addict I had to have it. My goodness this stuff smells awesome. I wish there was smell-a-blog! Rise & Shine – my 2nd favorite, its so invigorating smelling, Almond Biscotti – Nick might try to eat the bar, and Lemon Drop – very lemony and fresh smelling.
So if you want some awesome soap, she sells them for $5 a large bar, and I’m not sure of her half bar price. Visit her blog, or here’s her other web address: www.kerrlake.com/robinest.
sorry for the shop-a-blog, but I had to share. You don’t know how happy that soap made me today.
