Soapbox Cinnamon Soap with African Shea Butter and Sea Salt Review

I have been slipping on my holiday cheer pretty badly. I have not played a single Christmas song at all, which is very unlike me. So I'm busting out my Christmas playlist while I write this post. Boyz II Men Christmas Interpretations album is one you NEED, if your'e  looking for an album that's enjoyable from the first track to the last. Anyway, I hauled this a couple weeks ago...but I got the name wrong. I called it "Soaphope". But the brand is Soapbox...and I love what this company does.

Soapbox says:
Buy one and we give one to a child in need. More than 3,000 children's lives could be saved everyday with something as simple as a bar of soap and clean water. 

I love companies like this that give back and provide great products. I found this particular soap in my TJ Maxx but I have noticed it in my local health store. The retail price on the box is $4 but I got mine for $2.99. But this is definitely a brand I would purchase at full price. 

You get 4 oz of smoky cinnamon scented soap. I had never seen a cinnamon soap before this one so I snatched it up. I don't typically go for cinnamon (unless it's in cookies, cakes, or oatmeal) but I really liked the way this smelled. It's nothing like craft store cinnamon, it is a dark cinnamon scent. And I love it. I feel like it lingers a bit on my skin too.....not too noticeable but every now and again I feel like I smell it. 

It has little exfoliating bits in it, so if you wanted you can rub it directly on your skin to slough off dead skin. I typically just lather it up in a cloth and get to scrubbing. It bubbles nicely and a little bit goes a pretty long way.

I love that it doesn't dry my skin too much. Nothing like the soaps I was using from Shea Moisture. I do still need some lotion on my legs every now and again though.

These soaps are 100% natural and I was pretty surprised to find Olive Oil at the very top of the list. So far I've only found one other brand that uses a lot of Olive Oil in their soaps. I love the addition of oatmeal in it too...oatmeal does some amazing things for the skin. 

Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Soybean Oil, Corn Oil, Organic Shea Butter, Sea Salt, Oatmeal, and an all natural blend of Cinnamon and other essential oils. 

I really love this soap, and would absolutely recommend it to anyone (if you like cinnamon!). I love beauty products that give back, but sometimes it's hard to find ones that I would actually repurchase and recommend.  It's definitely going in my 2015 favorites list that I will be doing at the end of the year and I will be checking out more from this brand.
