Two-For Tuesdays: Philosophy Falling In Love Glycerin Soap Duo

I was raised on bar soap ... Dove, to be exact. Until about 1995, I didn't know any other way. Lathering up with shower gel was, until the invention of Caress, the furthest thing from this beauty chick's mind. And while in recent years I have made the switch completely from the trusty old bar of Dove to washes and gels, I still long for those easy days of reaching for that bar. And now I can, with my recent discovery of Philosophy's Falling In Love Glycerin Soap Duo!

Glycerin soap has definitely been a fave of mine ever since the days of those fantastic colored soaps from The Body Shop ... but these babies take glycerin to a whole new level. First of all, the scent is absolutely gorgeous. A blend of vanilla, floral and blackberry notes are sweet yet not cloying, romantic without being overtly sexy, fresh but not too young. The two bars are created in the prettiest pale periwinkle, which along with the beautiful scent just really speak to the message behind Falling in Love --

"Falling in love doesn't begin with falling in love with others. It begins with falling in love with ourselves. Loving ourselves is healthy and as God intended. Learn to deeply and fully cherish your heart, your soul, and your body, and only then will you understand what it is to truly love another."

Each bar is formulated with a mixture of aloe and chamomile extracts to calm, soothe and soften skin. I don't know about you, but the $18 price tag on Philosophy's website is a small price to pay for the air of nostalgia I'll feel lathering up with these!
