For my legs I swear! (I have a twisted family... dont ask) I made this soap cos I ran out of shaving cream and I researched shaving soap and figured that I had the ingredients to make it! So its coconut MP with kaolin clay, jojoba oil and scented with ginger souffle. The ginger souffle doesnt smell as coca colaish in this soap, so I figure in the sugar scrubs the sugar contributed to the smell.

Usually I find after I shave my legs they get reallly really itchy and I have to moisture straight away... well this soap is awesome! Im never using anything but this soap! It doesnt make my legs itch at all and it makes my skin fairly soft. It lathers wonderfully too.

The clay coloured it a bit but I did put some bronze mica in it and the mica didnt mix in very well, what didnt mix in sunk to the bottom. I admit it looks kinda pretty but it looked a little like I was putting fake tan on when I used it... obviously it just washed off so no biggy.

Extreme close-up!

I love how natural it looks, and isn't it great when you stumble upon a product that is just perfect-- especially when you can make it yourself? Send some my way, my legs are itchy after shaving, too. =P
