Good old fashioned soap often gets overlooked.
The old adage "if it ain't broke, don't fix it," applies to many areas of life, but in modern times, it is particularly relevant when it comes to soap. Sure, having hand sanitizer on-the-go is both practical and a necessity, but for many years bars of soap have been overlooked for their liquid siblings. And although it could be said that there's never been a more critical moment in modern times to regularly and diligently wash ones hands, there's no reason we can't add a touch of indulgence to that practical and healthy ritual. Not to mention, with the lack of packaging, using good old fashioned soap has less of an environmental impact. Here, some of the most luxurious bars of soap on the market.
Blackberry & Bay Soap
Jo Malone's Blackberry & Bay has been a crowd favorite for many years. Obsessees can now add an extra touch with a small square that smells delightfully fresh with the subtle bite of blackberry.
Cote D'Azur Soap Bar
Oribe's hair products smell so lush that they started making just the fragrance to sell too. What better way to pull your personal fragrance ensemble together than with a matching soap.
Savon Superfin Soap in Peruvian Heliotrope
A luxurious and hydrating handwash that won't leave your skin feeling tight—but it's the intoxicating blend of white flowers, tonka, and violet scents that make it highly addictive.
Hesperides Grapefruit Oval Soap
COURTESY OF SEPHORA
Not only does the size of this extra large bar of soap ensure that it is a great value for money, but the fresh and zesty grapefruit scent will put a pep in your step.
