New Favorite: Soapwalla Organic Face & Body Care

Pin It!

soapwalla-deodThere’s been many times where I’ve tried different products here and there and although they are natural and organic, they just don’t measure up to my girlie need for something indulgent. I’m a reformed bath product junkie so the stuff I choose now has to be safe and also work well.  But to really impress me it needs to make me feel like I’ve invested in something special. I know that I found a line of products that meet all my standards when I look forward to getting out of the shower to use them.  That is definitely the case with the products I have tried from Soapwalla.

Rachel, the “chef” behind the Soapwalla kitchen, created a line of truly natural products that not only work, they smell and feel unbelievably awesome.  Rachel, kind soul that she is, sent me 4 samples and while I loved all of them – I immediately went to her store and ordered 2 things: Her Deodorant Cream and the Luxurious Body Oil.  I’ll tell you why.

After using her Deodorant Cream I was totally hooked. At first I thought “I have to slap this on like spackle into my pits?” But in soapwalla body oilreality, you simply smooth a little bit on after a shower and that’s it.  You never feel sticky or wet.  After a week or so using it in warm (read: hot sweaty) Florida it has been effective enough to keep me odor free.  With some other natural deodorants I have had to reapply during the day and on one occasion I reeked after a few hours. (I don’t use that one anymore…. do you see what I do for you ladies? I SUFFER WITH B.O. just to find out what works best.  You can thank me later.  With products.  Or love and admiration. Whichever.) There are some I’m still trying and some I still use depending on the day but Soapwalla’s Deodorant Cream is definitely an awesome and effective product. It gets the LovelyMama seal of approval.

I also want to talk about her Luxurious Moisturizing Body Oil.  To start, I really love body oils over lotions.  Lotions usually need some kind of emulsifying ingredient which is typically a chemical or chemically processed wax or stearate. So I use a lot of lotion bars and oils to compensate.  I’ll admit that I love the idea of lotion more due to the ease of use and tend to choose them over oils when I’m in a hurry since oils can leave you feeling greasy for a bit while they soak in.  However there are certain cases when body oils don’t feel like you’re bathing in olive oil.  This is one of them.  Soapwalla’s Luxurious Moisturizing Body Oil goes on really light and absorbs in a reasonable time, so I don’t ever wish I chose lotion.  And the scent? Ooooohhhh my.  If I was a scent, I would be this one.  It’s light and citrusy, but with a delicate floral component so it has a certain feminine appeal to it.  After using it I feel girlie and pretty.  No need for phthalate ridden perfumes.  I just sniffed my arm and I still smell it – clean and girlie – even after running around all day. In a word: LOVE.

Soapwalla only uses organic ingredients and oils and never uses icky preservatives or chemicals.  I will definitely be shopping there again.  My next splurge? Organic Citrus Grove Soap Bar and some Almond Joy Body Polish.

GET IT: You can pick up all of Soapwalla’s great products on her Etsy Shop.

    Awesome review! I can always count on you to do the hard and “sweat it out”! I rushed out and ordered Soapwalla’s deodorant cream as soon as I heard you loved it.

    That’s right, I follow you around like a puppy dog. Can’t help it :)

    I just ordered the deodorant cream a few weeks ago. I love it! It works great and smells nice too. I’m glad to hear the other products are just as wonderful. I will have to place another order soon.
