These days, I feel like handcrafted soap is as plentiful as candles are. With so much to choose from, you never quite know which new products to try. Well I tried Revive Your Bath soaps and now I'm an avid fan...and customer. As these products make excellent stocking stuffers this holiday, I thought it would be a good time to share.
Caitlin Abshier is an entrepreneur at heart, as she started this business when she was still in high school. Her mom had given her a soap making kit for Christmas and as fate would have it, she found her passion. She continued to cultivate her craft and grow her business in college, selling soaps and bath products at local markets on the weekends. She graduated without any student debt and with that kind of determination, who knows what's in store for her next. Hard work pays off.
Of all the products I tried of Caitlin's, I'm partial to the loofah soap. I absolutely love this soap, which has an actual section of a loofah embedded. It's an excellent exfoliater, and paired with Caitlin's soaps, which are made from vegetable based oils without any harmful chemicals, preservatives, parabens or synthetics, it's a quick favorite in any tub.
As the holidays are coming up, Caitlin is offering some great gift sets. The Soap Slice Gift Set is a mix of 4 different scented soaps so you can figure out your favorite- which may likely be the popular Peppermint Rosemary and Lemon or Vanilla and Lavender. Plus, I just discovered on her site that she sells Soap Misfits from $3-$4.60 each- which are soaps that are perfectly fine but may not be aesthetically ready for prime time. I'm all over that...
When I visited their office and workspace in Atlanta, Cara Causey of Revive was there making a fresh batch of their Lavender Milk and Oatmeal Bath Soak. This soak is meant to soothe as it's made with buttermilk powder, colloidal oatmeal, lavender and lavender essential oil. As it's a somewhat chilly night right now in Atlanta as I write this, and I've worked the past two weeks without a day off, I'm wishing I had some of this right about now...
I really can't say enough good things about the Revive brand. I have a few new soaps stacked in my bathroom right now, at the ready, but as each bar can last up to a month, I know they'll each have to wait their turn. Click here to peruse the shop and my recommendation- try the loofah soap for your stocking stuffer gifts. The best!
