Like most women I’ve tried my share of health and beauty products. I used to have three shampoos open at once with multiple face washes on my bathroom sink counter. Getting older I find I am more selective and really take the time to refine my tastes. Things really change from 18 to 33 and I’m actually glad. One thing I have been looking for is a satisfying soap. I currently use olive oil based soaps, but they don’t give me the satisfaction I hope for. Like the dork I am, I took Latin in high school, I learnt about the ancient Roman ladies bathing themselves in olive oil and I wondered why my soap wasn’t delivering, something was missing.
This week my question was answered – Shiva’s Delight. The lovely Casey was kind enough to send me her hand made goodies. When I asked her about her products she said, “I take great care when I design my recipes and I try to make them very different than what is already out there. I also spare no expense with ingredients and I use very rich nourishing oils. I find to many companies opt for cheaper base oils that do not do much other than create “filler'” for their product! I research each oil and how it will benefit the skin and the other ingredients in the product!” That kind of craftsmanship is lacking in today’s market and I really appreciate and notice the difference. For what the products are made of, the pricing is incredibly reasonable and everything is made in Ontario! I would have assumed these kind of specialty items would come from somewhere else, but no, locally hand made in Kingston Ontario.
I have to admit, I did squeal when I opened the box. Here are the lovely items she sent:
The Lemon Poppyseed soap is an excellent exfoliate! Do make sure that you don’t press too hard or you will scrape your skin a the poppy seeds are hard. The soap smells divine and I really love the combination, like a muffin, but in soap form.
Remember this soap because it will become your favourite. Moor Mud Facial Cleansing Bar made me feel like a Roman goddess, it was smooth and went on like silk. I don’t even form a thick lather, I just wet the bar with my hands and gently apply the soap to my face, it’s like receiving a facial at a spa, heavenly! I do not want to use anything else on my face. Just a delight, I know I have found the product I will be ordering for years to come. Who knew, this little square would be so soft on the skin. I imagine my technique will make the soap last longer, I’ll have to track when I finish it and report back. Ladies, for your skin sake, I do highly suggest you try this bar, you can thank me later.
Even in my 30’s I am still prone to acne and I have been using SD’s Acne Facial Serum, I have noticed an increase in softness of my skin, also a few minor white heads have disappeared – mini victory!
If you are a cinnamon lover you will just about fall over when you smell this Cinnamon Lip Balm, it’s rich and goes on light. I noticed a slight colour tinge, but not like a lip tint. Cinnamon helps reduce cravings, so you know I will be applying this on my lips when doing a juice fast. Why not use every tool during that kind of cleanse, it’s all a mental game and most likely I’ll reach for this Lip Balm versus breaking the fast.
