Soapy Business (4 of 5 Reviews)

Today I tried the Honey Milk Body Bar.  I picked this bar of soap because the description indicated honey.  After reading the description today (apparently I didn't read into the descriptions when I picked the 5 samples), I noticed there is no honey in this soap.

Description (provided by the seller):
Made with natural ingredients, this bar is highly nourishing. Infused with the vitamins and minerals of goat's milk and honey, this soap will give a smooth, soft feel to your skin, long after bathing.

Ingredients: Olive Oil, Palm Oil, Coconut Oil, Palm Kernel Oil, Avocado Oil, Castor Oil, Goat's Milk, Grapefruit Seed Extract, Vitamin E, Spearmint Essential Oil

I was expecting more of a honey scent but only experienced the spearment EO.  When I selected this soap I didn't realize there'd be spearment mixed with these other ingredients. 

The soap lathered immediately into small sudsy bubble and worked great with my skin.  I suppose smelling spearment in the morning helped awaken my senses, but made me feel like I was at the dentists too.  After rinsing the soap off my skin, I was left feeling clean but not the squeaky clean as the other soaps did.  I also didn't need to apply lotion after my shower.

I think I would personally like this soap more if the spearment EO was not included in the mixture.  Maybe there are some people out there who enjoy this added EO.  For me, not so much.

Overall, on a scale of 1-5 Bubbles; I would rate this soap 4 Bubbles (would have gotten 5 if I could have smelled any honey).


  1. I like these soap reviews!

    I just stopped by after seeing your comment at about your son being allergic to strawberries. I wanted to tell you that my son was initially allergic to them too. He got a nasty rash on his face and white bumps in his mouth. But he grew out of it. So it might be worth trying them again in the spring, depending on how severely your son is reacting to them.

  2. I hear a lot of people have or had reactions to strawberries. My son broke out in hives all over his body. He didn't scratch them at all so I wasn't sure how they felt (I've never had hives). It's been almost 2 weeks since he's had a strawberry. He loves them. I would like to try again later this year.
