I have this thing about seaweed. You could really swap “thing” for obsession. I love the stuff. It is beyond tasty and I’ll never forget the roommate of mine that introduced me to the joys of eating seaweed. Roomie Joy and I both did a service term in AmeriCorps in Los Angeles. We lived in a convent. ‘Twas the best of times and the worse of times. But anyway…this soap reminds me of those times.
And anytime a product brings back memories from way back when, you kinda have to keep and it repurchase it. It’s the law. Reviva Labs provided me with a sample of this and while many of my Beauty Bloggers of Central Florida girls have raved about it, I have never actually tried it. Lame B, I am. I’m a bar soap lover but I can’t use them too often as they tend to dry my skin out. But with the extra time I’ve been doing in the sun these days due to the warmer weather, I figured I could switch over to bar soaps without my skin acting up. And I was right!
For $4, you can cop yourself a refreshing bar of soap with a base of palm and coconut oils. The built-in bits of seaweed help to gently exfoliate the skin. Sweet stuff, right?
My only drawback regarding this soap is the added dose of Fragrance. Totally unnecessary, in my book. Or I would have loved the use of sandalwood essential oil. That stuff is pretty expensive so even a touch of cedar (or some kind of essential oil with a woody note) would do the trick. The added Fragrance, I think takes away from the organic and natural feel of the bar. And said fragrance is either something you will love or hate. Can’t say I’m an enormous fan of it as it smells obviously synthetic and a bit pine-y in my book.
But whatever. It feels great on the skin and cleanses to perfection. Which is what a bar of soap is supposed to do, right? Go and scoop up a bar. It’s only $4. Definitely not wallet breakin’, ya know?
