Cucumber and Green Tea Soap

Any of you ladies seen some of those Dove "Campaign for Real Beauty" ads using "real women"? I suppose Dove is trying to do a good thing, but those ads scare me! It's a pity they don't choose to just show their Cucumber and Green Tea beauty bar instead.

This soap is something I saw pictured in one of the tea magazines. It's not only as creamy as you'd expect from Dove, it's also wonderfully scented. And I should warn that you'd REALLY better enjoy this scent. When I use it in the shower in the morning, the bathroom is still scented in the afternoon. I now think of the soap as "room scent" as well.

I was pondering the fact that green tea is so often combined with cucumber in beauty products. The only teatime connection I could make: Time to go have a cup of green tea and some cucumber sandwiches!


  1. Is it heavier on the cucumber scent or the green tea scent? I just luv the color!

  2. I'd say it's heavier on the cucumber scent, combined with some very fresh, very floral element I can't quite identify. (And I like that shade of green myself!)

  3. I am heading out the door to get some of that soap....who has the best price?

  4. Oooh, I want to go get some; I'm assuming they're sold everywhere now? And do you know if its just a trial thing or will it be on the market long term [though they'll probably test it first and see how well it sells].


  5. This is my absolute favorite soap! I even use it as an air freshener :-).


Thanks so much for taking time to leave a comment! It makes my day to hear from readers!
