Since I am always seeking out natural body and beauty products I jumped at the chance to review Grandma’s Lye Soap & Grandma’s Lip Soother. The soap is pure and natural with no detergents or additives like artificial fragrances or dyes. Just three ingredients are contained in the soap; Food Grade Lard, Lye & Water. The lye used to make the soap is much milder than the traditional lye you may be thinking of that is found in laundry detergent, so don’t let that deter you from trying the soap. It is definitely gentle on skin.
My skin gets very dry in the winter. And with my postpartum hormones all over the place it seemed to be even worse this season. I was having an eczema-like reaction to the cold air with dryness, flakiness and redness. I needed a soap gentle enough that it wouldn’t cause further irritation but strong enough to help my skin to heal AND fill my most important criteria of all-natural ingredients (especially since I am breastfeeding my daughter).
I found Grandma’s Lye Soap to do just the trick. It was very gentle and soothing on my skin. I even used it on my face which is always very sensitive. If you have sensitive skin then you know how important finding the right soap can be. I would definitely recommend giving Grandma’s Lye Soap a try! At just $5.00 for a large sized bar that lasted my husband and I well over a month, it is a great buy for those of you who not only have sensitive skin but who are looking for body products free of artificial ingredients.
The Lip Soother went on very smoothly, but wasn’t at all greasy. It helped to keep my lips from suffering from the dry winter air as well. It is perfect for year round use though because not only is it moisturizing but also has SPF 15 to protect from UV rays of the sun. The ingredients are: coconut, cocoa butter, beeswax, shea, mango, macadamia, kukui, almond, vitamin e, rosemary extract, flavoring and active ingredients oxybenzone 3%, om-cinnamate 7% (the active ingredients give the sun protection factor). The lip soother has a very pleasant but gentle taste and aroma. It’s a great add-on to any order at just $3.25 per stick.
