The APPELLES Apothecary Rosemary Body Bar has been one of the most popular inclusions in the May bellabox. But how would a body wash devotee like me handle a bar of soap?
I don’t know why, but I’ve always been a shower gel kinda girl. Maybe it felt more grown up? Perhaps I thought it was easier for some reason? Or maybe it was just because the only soap we had in the shower when I was growing up was some kind of really basic fragrance free soap, and I rebelled by purchasing my own beautifully scented body wash.
I continued on with my shower gel ways, trying different brands and types but completely ignoring the delicious smelling soaps I saw in my favourite beauty stores. Somehow I had come to the conclusion that soap just wouldn’t get the job done. I even used liquid hand wash, convinced that my hands wouldn’t be as clean if I used a solid soap.
That all changed when we included the APPELLES Apothecary Rosemary Body Bar in the May bellabox. I decided to take the plunge and see if soap could enhance my shower experience - because isn't that what bellabox is all about? The bb team get just as excited about trying all the new products as you do!
First of all, the scent was incredible. A combination of Blue Mallee eucalyptus, niaouli, lemon myrtle and rosemary creates possibly the most Australian fragrance I’ve ever encountered.
And the cleansing ability? As good, or even better than my shower gels. A good amount of soap suds and lather, but without using too much of the bar. And I felt like my skin was clean and soft after I stepped out from under the water. Plus the bathroom was filled with the beautiful smell of the Rosemary Body Bar! I think I’m converted.
This has got me really wanting to try the rest of the APPELLES line. They have a huge range of shower products, including shampoos, conditioners and even some body wash (yay!)
But don’t just take my word for it. Here are your comments on the Rosemary Body Bar:
