    I went shopping to Marshall's today and picked up a few things, and realized I needed another shower soap (the bars I make are hand-soap) and found some gorgeous soaps and sniffed them until I decided on the "Amber" scented one...omg, it's gorgeous...I mean, who hand paints glitter on the packaging then wraps it in ribbon with a rhinestone cluster?!! It was 5.99, and it's a very large bar, 300 gm.

    I just got curious about the maker, which is "Alchimia", which turns out to be a factory in Italy!! No wonder it's so gorgeous! I bought it because it's vegetable based and ... oh, the scent.
    There were Christmas scented bars, too!!

    Here's the BIG deal...they sell on Amazon for 24.99!!!!

    Here's a Christmas one I saw at Marshalls...
    I couldn't find a picture of the Amber one I purchased (with the Angels on it, and only one hand glittered on the top!)
    But it has this rhinestone cluster on it!



    If you're looking to WOW someone, or add it to a basket, I can't urge you enough to go to Marshalls and find them!!

    I will be heading there tomorrow to pick up a few more for me since I don't know anyone else who still uses soap..

    These sure are pretty!

    I always buy the handmade soaps at London Drug; they are sooo good. Last time, I bought some that were made in Philippine and loved it. The rose ones actually smell like rose, instead of artificial smell.

    Cool! I am currently using Dior J'adore body soap and it smells very good. But when it ends i want to try something that has real plant/flower extracts. They smell very nice and are actually good for skin.

    I didn't know that so many of us still prefer soap in all its goodness *unless they're US made, lol...over the chemicals in shower gels! I hope some of you pick one of these up...!

    Too bad that we dont have that store here. I would buy those in a heart beat. Bars of soap is the only thing I buy as I really dont like Body wash. I am like SavvyLady I still use soap and a facecloth and I too I find a good facecloth exfoliates my skin better than those puff balls!! I have bought a while back some Olay massaging bars of soap and I can not find them anymore, they are my favorite too. I still have some left but I will need some more soon. I will contact them and see if they still have some and order them. Finger cross as I really like that soap. Thank you Lynn for sharing a awesome brag and just to let you know Bars of soap are on my Xmass list lol. I just had to say this. Thank you again Lynn.......................................

    What a nice find!
    @ticul you could try at Winners. Marshalls and Winners are the same company and might have the same stock

    What a lovely find and at quite a savings! You can also repurpose the embellishments on the packaging in some craft projects.

    A woman after my own heart, lol...yep, you can bet that rhinestone embellishment will make an appearance on one of my DD's Christmas gifts!

    I started making my own hand soaps because of all the information out there regarding cancer and the ingredients in soaps (yes, even Olay!), particularly sodium lauryl sulphate which can have a very negative affect on us re cancer as well as our nervous systems. So I purchase soap bases without any harmful ingredients and just add essential oils to make them nice and sniffy. So easy to do!

    Here's info from the Suzuki Foundation re sodium lauryl sulphate

    Depending on manufacturing processes, sodium laureth sulfate may be contaminated with measurable amounts of ethylene oxide and 1,4-dioxane. i The International Agency for Research on Cancer ethylene oxide as a known human carcinogen and 1,4-dioxane as a possible human carcinogen. Ethylene oxide can also harm the nervous system iiand the California Environmental Protection Agency has classified it as a possible developmental toxicant based on evidence that it may interfere with human development. iii 1,4-dioxane is also persistent. In other words, it doesn't easily degrade and can remain in the environment long after it is rinsed down the shower drain. 1,4-dioxane can be removed from cosmetics during the manufacturing process by vacuum stripping, but there is no easy way for consumers to know whether products containing sodium laureth sulfate have undergone this process.

    Here's VERY SCARY information on both sodium lauryl sulphate and sodium laureth sulphate:

    http://articles.mercola.com/sites/ar...l-sulfate.aspx

    So....I use uncontaminated soap!
