What You'll Get
Now primarily used to freshen skin, scented soap was originally devised to throw off the delicate noses of vengeful sommeliers enraged by the sight of drinking wine through a straw. Ward off killer connoisseurs with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of soaps, scrubs, and lotions at The Soap Box Company’s online store.
The Soap Box Company, based out of St. Louis, treats skin to a full sensory experience with handmade scented soaps and moisturizers, flavor-tinged lip balms, gentle scrubs, and revitalizing facial masks, with many recipes incorporating natural and organic ingredients. Whipped soaps by I Smell Good ($10) lather surfaces with evocative nose-flavors such as honey and tobacco which, when used together, recall nostalgic sojourns with tea-drinking cowboys. Rugged patches of terrain rediscover their tender underbellies with Villainess’ Pearl Diver Smooch scrub, a blend of kelp and salts gathered from as far as the Dead Sea to exfoliate rough spots while imparting subtle hints of bergamot, jasmine, and orchid ($10). Villianess’ musky Kill Switch body crème institutes protection measures to banish dry skin, restoring velvety emollience with mango butter, cherry-kernel oil, and grapeseed oil ($10). The Fountain Collection of lip balms cloaks smoochers in the flavors of ginger ale, cola, root beer, and black cherry, with sets of four ($13.49) allowing wearers to recreate their favorite soda combinations from middle-school food-court rampages.
