Beauty Shop: Savon de Marseille Olive and Lavender Hand Soap

One of my favorite bathroom purchases is hand soap. My hands tend to get really dry, especially in the winter, so I always make sure to pick one that is good and moisturizing (there are few things I hate more than detergent-filled, drying hand soaps). Also, it's something that every single one of your guests looks at and uses, so it's important to invest in one that's both pretty and of the highest quality--believe me, your friends will appreciate it.

This one, made by Compagnie de Provence, called Savon de Marseille, is fantastic. I chose the olive and lavender scent, and it's turned me into even more of a frequent hand-washer than I already was. It's made with pure vegetable oils (moisturizing!) and contains no animal products or anything artificial, plus the bottle is simple and gorgeous.

I picked up my bottle at C.O. Bigelow, but you can also buy it online HERE for $23. Picture by Mark Iantosca. xo
