Usually I tend to steer as far away from what I call ‘block soaps‘ as possible, I have had waaaay to many experiences with drying soaps which I try to avoid where possible. So the first thing that I thought when I was kindly gifted this soap by Simply soaps was ‘brill more dry skin‘ the thing that I try oh so hard to avoid!A bit of background on Simply soaps
First off lets talk a little about Simply soaps as a company, founded in 1997 they are retail and wholesale sellers of organic and natural soaps which are lovingly handmade in the UK. The Simply soaps team pride themselves on not using any synthetic products which you can read more about here.

When it comes down to it I couldn’t have been more wrong about this product if I tried especially when you take a look at the all natural ingredients used to make this soothing Lavender soap. The ingredients include favourites of mine such as coconut oil, cocoa butter, Lavender essential oil and more all of which are very mositurising products in themselves.
I love a good bath and any product that means I can have a bath is always a winner with me. I thought I’d put this handmade soothing Lavender soap to the test after moving house and enjoying the peace and quiet that was very new to me along with my new bath caddy that I reallyyyyy needed ofc. In my eyes Lavender and baths before bed are the perfect formula for relaxation, Lavender with its soothing properties and baths because they help relax my muscles after the gym, if I’m honest I didn’t want to leave the bath to write this post after I got in I was that relaxed!
Fear not! Although this products selling point is Lavender it’s not overpowering at all, I am not a fan of anything that smells too Lavendery as this can be a bit too much… The product itself is very creamy when applied to the skin and lathers up nicely, but not too much that it dries your skin out. After bathing I almost felt the need not to apply my beloved moisturiser but I’m against aging faster than I need to so on it went!
