Good Earth Beauty's fabulous Soap Sampler helps you to come delightfully clean [Review & Giveaway]

What's in your soap dish!

Through the years I have used many types of soap beginning with Ivory Soap (you know the white bar that floats?) and then other brands that include deodorant soaps (with chemicals to deodorize our bodies), detergent "soaps" that are "better" for our skin, and perfumed soaps that run the gamut of sensual delights.

There is a movement afoot to do many things in a more natural manner utilizing tried and proven methods and simpler ingredients. This new movement is a back to the old ways in feeding ourselves and caring for our bodies inside and out.

So today, we're going to look at some natural  soaps that are made in the USA and in small batches using natural and sustainable ingredients.  And when we're finished, you will have an opportunity to be one of two winners of a cute little burlap bag with three 3-half bar soap samples.

Clay Detox, Activated Charcoal, & Honey Oatmeal Scrub 3-bar Sampler Pack

Activated Charcoal Soap 

Soaps that include the ingredient of activated charcoal are usually good for folks who have issues with rashes, acne, and irritations of the skin. The tea tree oil combined with the activated charcoal should be helpful for those who need an extra bit of help in taking care of their skin. Probably it will be good for anyone's skin.

About it: Ingredients: saponified organic olive, coconut, palm oil and shea butter, activated charcoal, tea tree and lavender essential oils

Honey Oatmeal Scrub 

I've used a variety of scrubs and found them to be a bit "much." They scrub too intensely and leave a residue in the bath. This Honey Oatmeal Scrub bar of soap lathers nicely and has a brisk scrubbing effect. Residue in the bath was minimal. I encourage using a nice lotion following use of a scrub. I enjoyed using this and can easily recommend it.

About it: Ingredients - saponified organic olive, coconut, palm oil and shea butter, goat milk, honey, oatmeal, crushed apricot seeds, unscented.

Bentonite Clay Detox Soap 

I've never had problem skin and am so very thankful for that blessing. I see a lot of information about treatments for skin problems and am amazed at products naturalists use for cleansing and detoxing the skin. We are all aware that some folks have issues with the pores of their skin becoming plugged with oils and impurities that cause breakouts. Some folks like bars of gel "soap" for cleansing and others like bars of soap that include various clays. Who would ever suspect that something from the soil itself could cleanse and detox? However, including bentonite clay in the Good Earth Beauty detox soap doesn't seem like you're "soiling" your face. My face felt amazingly clean, soft, and fresh after lathering it with the Bentonite Clay Detox Soap from Good Earth Beauty.

Later, when I used it for my bath, the fragrance was so refreshing. Men or women would both enjoy this scent and it feels so good on my skin.

I can highly recommend it for face and all over washing. The fragrance is refreshing and I enjoyed it very much.

About it: Bentonite clay is said to be detoxing and is commonly used in mud masks to pull the impurities and toxins from the body.   Our soap is blended with lavender, litsea, and patchouli essential oils for wonderfully fresh natural detox properties, a great complexion Soap.

Seasonal Scents - Honey Oatmeal, Pumpkin, and Vanilla 3-bar Soap Sampler

Pumpkin Soap 

Those of my readers who follow my reviews already know that I absolutely love Good Earth Beauty's Pumpkin Soap. This soap is particularly divine feeling as you're using it and for how you skin feels afterward. The scent is absolutely heavenly and doesn't linger where it might conflict with whatever scent you choose to wear for the day. Love it!

About it: All natural Pumpkin Soap with Pumpkin Puree and Pumpkin seed oil, Great seasonal pumpkin scent, Ingredients, Saponified oils of olive, coconut, palm shea butter and pumpkin seed, pumpkin puree, natural pumpkin fragrance oil.

All Natural Vanilla Soap

When I used this vanilla soap in the bath, I found it lathered nicely and had a very gentle scent. No, you won't smell like a cake or cookie reeking with the scent of vanilla flavoring. It is a nice gentle fragrance. My skin had a nice clean feel and doesn't feel dried or chaffed at all. Nice. The lovely oils used in creating this soap add richness that can surely work wonders on your skin.

About it: Ingredients: saponified organic olive, coconut, palm oil and shea butter, natural fragrance oil
