Skin deserves delicate handling, like newborn kittens and a hip replacement constructed out of Fabergé eggs. Treat your outer coverings to handcrafted lathers with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of handmade soaps and skincare products at Latimer Soap Works in Westport.
Latimer Soap Works purveys an array of soaps and skincare products handcrafted on the premises using natural ingredients. Soaps ready to pamper and buff epidermises include translucent glycerine bars bearing colourful designs and affording saucy, peek-a-boo views of each bar's gauzy insides ($5.50 each or three for $15). Meanwhile, organic concoctions, such as a shea-and-mango-butter ultramoisturizing soap ($7.50), slake bathers' thirsty pores with natural ingredients. Dead Sea bath salts can add a muscle-soothing fizz to bathtub soaks ($9.95), and pumice foot scrub bars exfoliate and soften weary pavement pounders and roughhewn end tables ($7.50). Shoppers can also peruse a selection of fair-trade gift items from international development partners and crafts made by local artisans from recycled and reclaimed materials.
