Round Top Handmade Soaps

Round Top
Natural Handmade Soap

There's almost nothing better than a good, handmade bar of soap. Round Top soaps smell amazing, lather well, include various natural exfoliators in the bars, and are gentle for sensitive skin. I'd like to tell you about some of my personal favorites. All bars are a healthy 5.25 ounces for $6.95.
Lemon Luster Soap

First, my favorite of all the Round Top soaps I tried.
This soap has a very clean lemon scent, with a hint of verbena. It has coarse-ground coffee beans for added exfoliation. This soap lathers the best out of all that I tried, and the clean scent can't be beat.

Rosemary Mint Bouquet Soap

This is my second favorite, it's a truly delicious scent that will have you feeling as if you just went out to the garden and picked armfuls of rosemary, mint, and fresh flowers. It has bits of the herbs to exfoliate and deep cleanse your skin, and it leaves a rich scent that lasts for a long time. Don't worry... you won't smell like spaghetti sauce! This scent is more of a fresh, clean, just-came-in-from-the-garden scent.

Oatmeal, Milk and Honey soap

This soap is great for children with sensitive skin. The youngest member of our family, Jack, is one, and recently he had an inner ear infection. He was put on some strong antibiotics, and, as usual when he has antibiotics, developed diaper rash. We typically give him a bath to help soothe this, but we usually have to use either clear water or sprinkle just a bit of oatmeal in the bath to soothe the rash, but this soap was gentle and soothing. This really soothed the rash, and by using it everyday until the rash went away, this soap made the rash last only 2/3 as long as usual. The scent is wonderful, with the oatmeal, milk and honey scents, and vanilla and brown sugar wafting through also.

These soaps are great for all ages, and have delicious scents. I find that each bar will perfume a small room. Try using either a whole bar or a piece of a bar in a drawer for clothing that smells good enough to eat!
