Recently I stopped in to my local Artisan Collective shop to browse the creations of local residents in my community. While there I saw some soaps and decided to give one a try. My face soap was nearly gone at home so I inquired about the selection and went home with a bar of Morning Dew soap. Avocado and Cucumber, it smelled so good!!
I’m not one of those people who wigs out over ingredients but I do know that the closer to nature we get on things we use in and on our bodies, the healthier it is and as a result we are too. I don’t know what, if any, chemicals cause cancer or other diseases but I also don’t see the point in taking unnecessary risks. I also believe in supporting local, small businesses whenever I can because it helps keep food on the table for those families. My daughter is a careful shopper of things more natural based and I suppose she is rubbing off on her mama. 🙂
The Morning Dew bar is made of Olive, Coconut and Castor oils, cucumber, avocado and goat’s milk. Being someone who battled adult acne in my late 20’s and early 30’s I get nervous about oil anything but decided to just give it a chance.
It lathers up nicely but not too much (I’ve read that the more lather the more a product is actually stripping your skin of its own moisture, as do chemicals). I use hand-made cotton scrubbies to wash my face so I rubbed the bar with my wet scrubby and cleansed my face and neck. Not only was my face very clean, it felt clean! No oily residue left behind, it rinses away leaving just clean skin! I’ve been using this product now for 2 months and to be honest my face has never felt this clean and the skin looks amazing. (At 54 we really notice these things!)
Morning Dew is $6.50 per bar and is a pretty decent size brick of soap. I broke mine in half and only keep half in the shower at one time. Washing my face twice a day the whole bar lasted 8 weeks, very economical in my opinion.
I was so impressed I got online to The Soap Kitten’s website and looked at her other products because she officially had a new customer, ME! Turn around is fast from order to shipment, another plus if you are like me and tend to wait until the last-minute to restock.
I’ve purchased the Morning Dew Again, as well as Stay Frosty, Christmas Past, Sugar Shack and Heavenly Body. All smell amazing and are just wonderful for your skin. The scents are not overly strong, and don’t hang with you to clash with perfumes, another plus!
You can purchase direct from Soap Kitten or at one of the locations listed in her website if you happen to be local to Cincinnati’s west side.
Other ideas: use the soaps as shower prizes at wedding/baby showers, birthday or Christmas gifts, and hostess gifts!
You won’t be disappointed!
