Hand Soap...Paradise


I have a few weird obsessions. One of them is hand soap. While I usually can't afford fancy soaps and I just go with my favorite brand Method, if I ever come across a really good smelling hand soap, I can't help it! I have to buy it. This one is just down right heavenly. As I was meandering the aisles at Target last night looking for silly bandz, (so my daughter won't get left out at recess anymore, which by the way is so stupid), I came across a display of various hand soaps, dish washing soap, candles etc. The packaging is what caught my eye, so I unscrewed the lid to Caldrea Citron Ginger and I was immediately transported into a fruity paradise.

There was no escape, I had to buy it. I threw it in my basket, finished up my shopping (no luck finding the silly bandz), and after checking my receipt trying to figure out how in the world my bill came to $70, I found that my new favorite soap was $8 not $5. OUCH!

The reward came a few hours later. After making a not so good random dinner of whatever we could find in the fridge, finishing up endless homework with the kids, and trying not to loose my patience because they refused to go to bed, my youngest came up to me and said, "thanks mom for buying that good smelly soap, see smell my hands!" And I was immediately transported back to paradise.

Oh, I'm right there with you! There is a soap called Cucina Fruits and Passion. It's a total splurge. My husband has been known to get in trouble for using too much! It transports me ...

Hand sanitizing foaming soaps from bath and body works are my passion. Is it wrong that I'm a junky too? But I always splurge when they have an awesome sale. Brown sugar and fig is my all time fav!
