Dual Action Bars - For the Girl on the Go

We all know exfoliating helps maintain smoother, healthier, younger looking skin. The problem is we don't always have the extra time in the morning to do this, so I've been working on a dual action bar that cleanses and exfoilates. In addition to being a time savor, they are cleaner and easier to use then traditional scrub. Traditional scrubs are great, and I still recommend you try to use them once a week, but the dual action bar gives you another quicker easier option and is gentle enough to use everyday. Here are a few scents I've been working on with more coming soon!


Delizioso Soap 6.5 oz

Orange Spice


This 6.5 oz bar has the sweet citrus scent of orange, complimented perfectly with high notes of cinnamon and clove and warm earthy undertones of ginger and nutmeg. This is a dual action bar with sweet brown sugar to help exfoliate away dry skin while the rich creamy lather cleanses the skin leaving you feeling silky smooth.

Mattino Soap - 6.5oz

Oatmeal, Almond, and Honey


This 6.5 oz bar of shea butter soap is full of soothing ground oatmeal as well as walnut husk to gently exfoliate your skin. The honey adds extra vitamins, minerals and emollient properties to keep your skin feeling hydrated all day long. This is all brought together by the sweet scent of almond essential oil.

Conforto Soap 6oz

We all know exfoliating helps maintain smoother, healthier, younger looking skin, but we dont always have the time. So this 2 in 1 bar is perfect for the girl on the go. This is a gentle exfoliating soap bar, so you can exfoliate while you cleanse. This super soft bar has warm fragrance of vanilla and sweet brown sugar that is comforting and soothing.

Wow, your soaps look amazing. I con't believe I hadn't seen you on etsy already. I especially love the look of the Mattino bar.

subu said...

mmm. the Conforto Soap (Vanilla and Brown Sugar) sounds delicious!

Madelaine said...

I, too, am surprised I haven't seen you on etsy before. Your soaps look awesome. I'm particularly fond of the Cappuccino Soap. I love coffee soaps, as I can't drink real coffee, but I love it so much!

Plus, your photos are great, which is a requirement for me to buy from a B&B Shop (I'm picky about photos)! :D

I bet the citrus scent makes your skin feel cool as well as super clean. I may follow that up with the cappucino, then I'd be ready to start my day. :) They look so pretty.
