Petoskey and Pine Morning Lavender Soap and Lip Balm

We interrupt the regularly occurring food posts for a review. 

I was lucky enough to score a bar of this soap by Petoskey and Pine.     They make Artisanal Bath Products and Lip Balms, from natural ingredients.

 I was one of twelve bloggers who were given a choice of a soap or a candle. 

There were a lot of choices on their website as to the scents, but I picked Morning Lavender.

What can I say, I love Lavender.

Let me share some of the ingredients in the soap.   They have Olive Oil, Palm Oil, Coconut Oil, Caster Oil and Mango Butter.   I mean, this stuff is really nice.   I won't say my hands are soft as a baby's bum, but they are softer, of course they're considerably older as well.  But...

And the soap fragrance was lovely, as was the soap.   I love how my skin feels when I use it.

Now, as for the lip balm, I didn't realize I'd be getting a lip balm along with the soap and have to say that the lavender flavour on the balm wasn't one of my favourite tastes, however, as a base for lipstick, WOW!!!
I was just in Las Vegas for a trade show and used the lip balm as a base every morning and was actually to wear lipstick the entire show.  Usually, I can wear lipstick for a couple of days, before my lips let me know they don't like all that stuff on them, but this time, it didn't happen.

I think I need a few of the lip balms in different flavours to keep on hand. 

I guess I've been spoiled soapwise the past couple of years, a friend makes a wonderful goats milk soap and I use that, and now I have another great soap to use.
Yay me.

Take a look at the website, and give them a try.   Apparently it is only available in the US however.
