Review and Giveaway

I am so excited to tell you about this wonderful company, True Soaps, and products. I was first introduced to Debbie's soaps 5 years ago at my first trip to Christmas Made in the South. My first purchase was a magnolia melba lotion and a salt scrub. Since the first time I purchased from her, I have bought other lotion scents and of course her soaps. 

Debbie's lotions are wonderful! My favorite scent is Spun Sugar. If you ever wanted the smell of cotton candy in a lotion, this is it. Another great thing about the lotions is that they continue to leave their scent hours after you put it on. I hate putting a lotion on and it not having a smell anymore after a few minutes. Debbie describes Spun Sugar as "Yummy sweet smell reminiscent of Cotton Candy, but *all* grown up! A light, luscious lotion that liquefies on contact with your skin. Slips into your skin quickly and leaves you feeling cool, smooth, and smelling incredible. No sticky residue or oily feeling."

Now the soaps. Where can I start? The soaps smell wonderful and leave your hands soft and very clean feeling. Another great thing with the soaps is they last a long time. I use mine everyday and it has lasted me about 4 months at a time. My favorite scent is spearmint and lavender. It's minty and very refreshing. The bars are approximately 3 ounces and come hand wrapped in beautiful papers.
