High-quality soap cleanses, moisturizes, and showers bodies in scent to disguise pocket stashes of roast beef from jealous hounds when walking by the dog park. Pamper discerning noses with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of handmade natural soaps, shea butters, and other bath and body products online from Scentsational Soaps, not including flat shipping fees of $6.95 or $15 for orders of more than $50.
The soap wizards at Scentsational Soaps combine natural skin-pampering ingredients with hand-mixed aromas to create unique cold-process soaps, shea body butters, exfoliating salt glows, and other products without the use of preservatives, water, petroleum, or animal testing. Cold-process soaps ($7 each) arrive swathed in seeded paper that, once planted, sprouts into wildflowers. The soap within suds up into a velvety lather full of moisturizing essential oils, shea butter, and fragrances such as lemongrass-patchouli or oatmeal. Customers can snag unscented cancer-awareness soaps ($6 each) emblazoned with a pink bow that allot a portion of proceeds to support cancer research.
Shea body butters ($15 each) replenish thirsty skin with a nourishing balm of rich oils infused with the scent of soothing lavender-vanilla or the crisp aroma of clean linen hanging outside on nearby telephone wires. Naturally exfoliating salt, almond oil, and olive oil deluge 8-ounce salt-glow containers ($17 each), tinged with hints of chocolate or cool citrus basil, which buff away dull skin and unearth supple, radiant epidermises.
