Have A Groovy Wednesday!

After suffering from skin allergies for 20-something years, I've grown fond of shopping for soap. And as a nerd for color theory, asliceofdelight on Etsy takes care of both my interest in soap and colors. Based in Berkeley, Hilary's handmade soaps feature awesome color combinations and delightful designs.

Handmade soaps are big on my radar since I suffer from eczema, and generic soaps or brands you typically find at your local drugstore or grocery contain chemicals that really are just unnecessary — my skin usually doesn't agree with these "extra" ingredients. This is where handmade soaps come in: asliceofdelight offers ways to be happy in the shower or bath with natural ingredients and fantastic colors. Feeling groovy? Then Hilary's "Have A Groovy Day Soap" will definitely tickle your senses with its fragrance blend of orange, apple, grapefruit, peach, strawberry and loganberry. Sounds delicious, right? Yes.

The soap has ruffles on it, which makes me imagine this would be pretty amazing in the shower or tub, giving it an edge for a "massaging" effect while the ruffles last. I am all for that. You'd be caressing your skin with the following ingredients: coconut oil, palm oil, safflower oil, glycerin, purified water, sodium hydroxide, sorbitol, sorbitan oleate, soy bean protein, titanium dioxide, fragrance oil, colorant, and a little bit of cosmetic glitter. For those of you who also suffer from eczema or just dry skin in general, coconut oil is a fantastic ingredient to help moisturize (and soothe the dry or rough patches affected by eczema on your body).

Having purchased masses of natural soap and skincare products before, I can say that asliceofdelight is reasonable and very affordable. Hilary has other tasty sounding treats whipped up, like Orange Mocha Soap and Mintylicious soap, but if you want to have a groovy time in the shower, give her "Have A Groovy Day Soap" a try!

Spring is here and Easter is coming up — a piece of soap from asliceofdelight would be a perfect thing to have in the bathroom for the joyous season or give as spring-colored gift!
