For the majority of my life I have been using body wash and other variations OTHER than plane bar soap. My husband has always been a strict bar soap user. Lately I have been realizing that I reach for his bar of soap more than I reach for body wash. I went out searching for fabulously scented bar soap not long ago and I wanted to go the artisan, hand-made route and was extremely happy to discover the Formulary 55 brand.
When I was exploring their site I discovered the charming, gorgeously wrapped soaps with names that had me on the edge of my seat going, “Yeah. Yeah. YEAH.” Each name better than the last. I bought a few full size bars that I KNEW I would love just based on the name itself. Vintage Peony, for starters, was what really lured me into adding to my cart. If anyone knows me, they KNOW that peonies are my very favorite flower ever. The other scents just kept drawing me in. Bourbon & Vanilla, Day Dream, and Sea Salt & Lavender really captured my imagination. I threw Joyeux Noel in my cart because of the special pricing and I am glad I did because it is great too.
There were more that I wanted to sample that I wasn’t sure of but I am SO EXCITED to say that they are truly remarkable. My favorites out of the half size bars I picked up is Wild Honeysuckle and Tea & Tobacco. The one that I have already been using is Earl Grey Tea, which is made with shea butter. I cannot believe how mosturized my skin felt after using this soap for the first time. Even when I hold the soaps in my hand and the bar warms up with my body heat the scent sings and you can feel the moisture coming off of it. All without feeling slick or greasy.
I am not going to go into describing scents because I am terrible at that, and Formulary 55 basically spells it out for you with the names of their products. I need you to try this for yourself. If you pick up a bar or two, please come back and tell me you did. I want to scream it from the rooftops how good this stuff is.
