Alaffia Triple Milled Shea Butter Soap- Pineapple Coconut

I'm back. So of course time to write a post! I got back Monday night, but just been too tired/lazy to blog. I went to Vegas..and I think I love it there. And I will definitely be going again. I loved the strip, if you like shopping it's the place to be. The hotels are gorgeous. I got my summer color on walking around in the hot sun...yay! And I finally got to go to Tiffany's. I love the movie Breakfast At Tiffanys- and one day I will have a ring from Tiffany's and the pretty blue box too! . I know exactly the one I want but don't really want to spend that much on a ring.

Anyway, this is a soap review!

Alaffia claims:
This long-lasting triple milled Certified Fair Trade shea butter soap will leave skin feeling soft & sumptuous.

I tried the sandalwood soap from this company previously. It was OK. I've been wanting to try more for awhile but they don't go on sale very often. So when I saw them on sale again I snatched up the Pineapple Coconut. It's been awhile since I've had a fruity soap.

It's a creamy yellow, triple milled bar- so it will last a little longer than the handmade soap bars I seem to keep buying. It smells great! I didn't think I would like it. I wouldn't necessarily say it smells like Pineapple or Coconut. Or especially fruity. It just smells gentle and nice. Almost a scent I think would be great for a baby. 

The scent doesn't last very long though, and it is gentle. But I don't mind it- I don't think it would be as nice if it were super strong.

It makes lots of thick rich later. It's cleansing, but not stripping. I wish I had brought it with me to Vegas because my skin took a beating there. My poor skin was so dried out. But I just used hotel soaps...because I didn't want to pack a damp bar. 

I paid like $4 for it. And I don't mind that price. Alaffia is a great company. The brand is fair trade, and they do a lot of great things for the communities the employ. 

Also the bar is all natural...and made in the USA. And comes in super cute, recyclable packaging.

 Sodium Palmate, Sodium Palm Kernelate, Water, Glycerin, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter*, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil*, Natural Fragrance, Sodium Citrate, Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides. *Certified Fair for Life - Social & Fair Trade by IMO.

I really liked it. I could see myself buying it again if I didn't always feel like I needed to try something new! And it is something I would recommend. I like this one a lot more than the sandalwood one. 

Now I just need to get my hands on the raspberry one!
