A Non-Vegan Soap Full of Sin!!!

I am going to blame my sin on the unbearably hot weather.
Texas is close to breaking weather records.
The heat wave started in May when the temps soared to the upper 90s. As of today, we have had over 30 straight days of 100+ degree temperatures.
A rare phenomenon has taken place: I have lost my appetite for everything except sweet foods and ice cream. Now, I am not supposed to eat ice cream due to lactose intolerance. Additionally, I am a practicing vegan. 
I crave sweet and creamy, so I made the most decadent soap ever!!!
It is made with Organic Heavy Cream, Organic Raw Cocoa Butter, Food Grade Rose Water and cruelty-free Tussah Silk. The color is thanks to French Rose Clay which is also terrific for sensitive skin.

Organic Cream, Rosewater & Silk Soap
I feel so guilty!!
But, my guilt is your luxurious pleasure! 
Buy it now in the Etsy shop.
I guarantee that your summer parched skin will LOVE it.

Want to Pare Down Your Summer Grooming Routine?

You should try my latest obsession - eco-friendly, all natural, handcrafted and ridiculously convenient shaving soap.
Seriously, shaving soap is my latest obsession.
I am not a warm weather kind of woman, so I take more showers and baths in the summer months. Especially now that I live in a place where it has hovered around, below, at and over 100 degrees since May.
I use my shaving soap daily - and love it. No more bottles, cans, jars, tubes, or worrying about how to get the stuff in a carry on bag for a flight!
I do not use a brush, I simply use the soap as an all over cleanser (even my face in this humidity!) and it just happens to give me an awesome shaving experience so I can go out in public. :)) 
The transformative ingredient is French clay. This clay infuses the soap with 'slip' so your razor can grab it and whisk that hair away.
Additionally, I find that even though my skin is sensitive, it likes this gentle, yet purifying clay! Hooray!
Currently, I offer two kinds of soap in the Etsy shop that are perfect for a close shave - Sweet Bay Oil and Deep South Floral, especially for the ladies. 
Although I am using the Sweet Bay Oil more, the Deep South bar has the added benefit of raw, organic shea butter, so some of you lucky Gals may be able to skip the body lotion!
In this type of sizzling weather, less is more, with the exception being sunscreen.

So, if you order a bar or two, please let me know if you love this soap as much as I do!
