Garden of Ireland Sweet Lavender Soap

My concern over sodium laureth sulfates and parabens in most shower gels led to look for a more natural alternative.

About a month ago I spotted the Garden of Ireland Sweet Lavender soap in the Kilkenny Shop.It appealed to me because the packaging was so pretty and I loved the scent. I decided to give it a try.

I have not been disappointed with this soap. I love to use it because the smell is so calming and it is really gentle on the skin.

The soap cost €5.00 and when I bought it a month ago I cut off a third of the bar and this has lasted me until today. Therefore it has proved to be very economical. Also the soap comes wrapped in pure linen and this can be used as an exfoliator.

I know this soap may not be everyones cup of tea as some people might feel lavender soap is a bit grannyish. However I like it and I feel there is something really nice and comforting about the scent.

I am also delighted that this lovely product is made locally in the Wicklow countryside which has been the inspiration for the Garden of Ireland collection. The company have created their very own 'field of dreams' within the valley where they grow and harvest their own lavender.Hopefully I will get to try some of the other products from the collection very soon.

Thanks for reading and I would love to hear about your favourite soaps.

Lavender is the most versatile soap out there. Really, this scent may smell a bit like granny but it's a balancing aroma & is good for almost all skin types out there. It's a very comforting scent.
