Today is Monday and we all know how Mondays can be… but we hope that this next giveaway will brighten your start to the week.  For Day 6 of 12 Days of Giveaways, we are pleased to be able to feature a selection of soaps and a body puff from The Little Soap Shop!

I love the Soap Shop – I get my soaps there, as well as soy candles and lotions.  Vivian Dritsas, proprietress of The Little Soap Shop, has never steered me wrong and I’ve come to love all the products I’ve bought there over the years. They make my skin feel so good!

I encourage you all to stop by The Little Soap Shop to check it out (friend them on Facebook, too).  Soaps are made from natural products, and along with the lotions there are no parabens or pthalates to be seen.  The soy candles are also wonderful, both in their beautiful scents and their lack of toxins – did you know that most candles are made from petroleum products, so by choosing soy (or beeswax, honestly) you will be kinder to the air quality inside your home? And you know who I learned that from?  Vivian!

Just tell us what your favorite personal care product is – soap, lotion, body butter – we want to know!  Personally, I’m going to stop by Vivian’s soon and restock my soap supply.  Hoping to find a beautiful holiday candle while I’m there, too.

You’ll have until Wednesday to play – we’ll announce a winner on Thursday morning, 12/16.

In the winter, definitely LOTION! I need it…but I am a sucker for fancy, good smelling soap :)

Ashley Willisch

My favorite product from anywhere or any store is always body oil even simply johnson’s baby oil… right after a shower and your skin will stay soft all winter long :)


I’ve never been here but my cold chapped skin could already use some winter pampering.


I love the thyme soap! It smells so good. I bought several of these soaps to give as gifts the other day (think I bought thyme, oats & spice and patchouli).


Sugar scrubs and lots of moisturizer, and a wonderful rich hand cream! Merry Christmas!


I love the Little Soap Shop! And I cannot get through winter without a really good lotion! Salt scrubs are great too.

Eileen Diskin

A wonderfully smooth hand lotion with just a hint of a scent – nothing too floral and definitely no sea breeze.


my favorite skin care product is lotion..nothing’s worse than dry skin, especially in the winter!


Salt scrub, hands down. It gets me through the harsh winter baby soft!


I definitely switch up my scents in the winter. Right now, I love my vanilla-scented shower gel with a matching lotion.


I’m torn between very thick hand cream and a moisture rich body lotion as my must-haves for winter. Anything with a light perfume or a vanilla based scent is my fave!


I love a nice scented body butter. But I really enjoy either a salt or sugar scrub, too.


Lotion, definitely. Especially in the winter time. My hands always hurt from being dry!
