Dr Bronner's Magic Soap

30 May 2013


Soap is just soap, right? Wrong. Oh don't worry, I used to think the same. Unlike a lot of beauty bloggers, I don't run out and buy something that's being hyped about straight away. Oh no. I'm more of a wiley fox - I stalk, skulk and watch from afar..I like to see how people get on with products before rushing in and splashing my cash, and read copious amounts of reviews and YouTube vids before burning my plastic. I was the same with Dr Bronner soap. I've always been aware of its existence and knew it was a brand that had been around for many years, but like I said, soap is just soap, surely? After watching from afar for a rather long time, I bit the bullet and bought it. After all, with the name 'magic soap' I was expecting good things.

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 :)
