A must ✔️ according to me.
I don’t know if I only speak for myself, or if others too have that everyday struggle with what’s really good for our skin vs what will harm or damage it. It feels like everyday a new product is shoved in our faces with false hope that we will magically look (and sometimes even promised feel) younger and more vibrant. I have always just used a soap bar until it started drying out my skin and between my friends and family, we have tried every body wash that has come our way. This is where Dr. Bronners Magic soap came in. They say the best things come to us when we aren’t looking and that is true! I was on my most recent little vacation in NYC and since I used airbnb to book my trip, I was staying at someone’s condo. When I hopped into the shower the first night I noticed was a lot of natural and organic products. I’m not sure if you’re supposed to use the home owners stuff or not, but I didn’t care and went for it. After one try, I knew Dr. Bronner and I had a future together. It is an 18-in-1 soap made with all organic oils. It is 3 times more concentrated than traditional soaps. The craziest of it all is that you can wash just about anything with it. Your car, your dishes, your dog, your hair, your face (keep your eyes closed though folks, the sting is not cute) and in my case, your body. That’s how you know how organic and safe it is. It is so harm-free that you can use it on everything. Personally, I love this product at this time of year because the peppermint is very refreshing and makes you feel a little chilly. The lather is very easy to adapt to and I found zero irritations after using it for the first time (Hence why I purchased it myself). The price is incredible, especially for the size and anything organic usually costs an arm and maybe a leg too. Not to mention, because the body wash is so concentrated, you really don’t need a lot. It’s a pure, old-fashioned soap; the consistency appears thin and watery but once lathered with a loofa it’s a nice texture, very soapy. One little sprinkle of it is plenty so it’ll be a while until you need a new bottle. The company makes this in several different scents, but I am yet to stray from the peppermint and from other reviews it’s their most popular variety for a reason: like a peppermint patty for your body!
A couple of to take note on:
1. Be careful with your lady parts, they may not appreciate the very bracing mint sensation.
2. Read the bottle. Seriously, It’s completely strange and awesomely weird. The theory is uncomfortable and I’m not sure how Jesus has anything to do with it but we will cut him some slack for making this life changer.
Where it can be found:
I am from Canada and I have seen it at Fortinos and Goodness me. When I originally purchased, it was from Walgreens in the lower east side in NYC. I am so glad they sell it here! If you don’t have any of these stores near you, I would assume any natural store or health section of your local super market will have one.
The price: around 15 dollars, give or take a few bucks.
All the fragrances:
Almond, Tea Tree, Citrus, Eucalyptus, Lavender, Rose, Peppermint and for the kids, Baby Mild.
If you’re looking for something new and refreshing, this is what you’re looking for! If you try it, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Happy Wednesday! xx
