Dr Bronner's variety of magic soaps are fair trade, organic and are made up of different smelling scents to tickle your fancy. I've been using the Citrus Orange Pure Castille Soap because I like fresh scents, but there's peppermint, lavender, and almond to name a few. What makes it a 'magic soap' then? It claims to be an 18-in-1 wondersoap. No kidding. That's a pretty bold statement to make I think. If I'm honest, I haven't yet tried washing Max with it, and I haven't asked Jonny to use it when shaving, and I haven't cleaned the kitchen floor with it, but I have been using it for bubble bath, cleaning make-up brushes and as a body wash. Because castille soap is completely organic, it is soft and friendly to your skin, meaning it will also be nice to your make-up brushes. I 'deep-clean' my brushes frequently, and to be honest you can use any soap or mild shampoo to clean your brushes, but I have been really favouring this recently. You only need a pea sized amount of the sopa which then lathers up nicely, cleans beautifully and makes the brushes smell rather delicious. A small but little fav effect of mine is the entertaining bottle - Dr Bronner put all his philosophies on the bottle, and at first they would be easy to miss, but take the time to read the bottle..it will give you a chuckle.
So, is soap just soap? In essence, yes. But Dr Bronner has created a wonderful product with so many uses that I guess you can call it a magic soap. To find a soap that is so organic, natural and full of goodness is a rarity these days, as we are so used to concoctions of rubbish and nasties in our bottles. If you want to spend a tad more, then do try Dr Bronner. You can buy for around £5.49 online, but also check TK Maxx where you can often pick them up for half the price. The proof is in the using, and I'm on my second bottle which says a lot!
NB: Sorry for lack of blog posts this week - unfortunately I was in a car crash last week which has left me a little unsettled :( Positive news is that I now have 800 GFC readers..so thank you to all who read and comment. It means the world :)
