In the world of beer there's some who still think that beer is a man's drink. We of course at TBM don't think that! But the same could be said in the reverse about smelling good and being clean for guys. Some think that only women enjoy a good, natural and satisfying soap. But that's not the case. A couple of years ago I got into safety razors and skin care for my face, which always seems to break out if I don't properly care for it before shaving. By the way, like beer, that's also a slippery slope - buying and collecting shaving items, trying new soaps, brushes, razors, blades, on and on.
So because of this, smelling good and being clean is the in thing, we decided that it was a great idea to review soap from Clean Treats Bath & Body, based out of London, Ontario, Canada. And especially so because not only are they made with natural ingredients, and we're positive it also includes love; most importantly, to us, she uses BEER in her soaps! Seriously, BEER! Mellanie, the owner and creator, is such a cool gal that she reached out to us to review her natural, hand made soaps.
Why are her soaps so good? Well here's what her site states ~
We choose all of our ingredients carefully. We aim to create products that are beautiful, natural and nourishing to our customers.
Quality ingredients, small batches; that's what we are about.
Pale Ale & Honey
Side note, I used this instead of shampoo and it rinsed cleanly and my hair wasn't dried out like most soaps.
Nick found that the bar only lasts about a week and a half, so if this is your choice, get a few.
Side note, Nick used it to shave and it worked great for him! He claimed it was the closest shave he has ever got.
Salted Coconut Custard
Side note, my wife mentioned that most soaps irritate her skin and this one did not. Go figure though, her favorite soap was MY man soap.
All of these soaps were wonderful to use, smelled delicious and we REALLY appreciate Mellanie giving us the opportunity to try these out! And even the extra soap for our wives. If you can pick a couple different scents up (which has expanded since we last checked the website out), you'll be extremely happy you did! From Mellanie's Etsy store you can see her current stock of available items.
Mellanie currently has soaps Scented with Essential Oils (Earl Grey & Juniper, Spiced Rooibos, Rub-A-Dub Ducky, Soft Mint Goat'meal, Lavender, Green Tea & Honey, Tuscan Sun) and soaps Scented with Fragrance Oils (Chocolate Stout, Apple Strudel, Double Butter Pumpkin, Boho Gold, Salted Coconut Custard, Spiced Mocha, Wild Rose, Darling Clementine, Handsome Ale). Doesn't that list just make your nose go crazy? She also carries other neat bath products like Whipped Body Frosting, Coffee Body Polish, and Butter Bombs!
If you do end up ordering some soaps, or any of her other wonderful products, let her know you saw it on TBM!
Stay clean and drink (and bathe with) beer! Let us know what you think in the comments or on twitter.
