In a Soap Utopia

I have found a new product that I am currently in love with. For those of you who don’t know, I have always tried to be an activist for locally grown and made products. This year I’ve again made a pledge to buy more from small independent artists, designers, crafters and farmers. Being a crafter myself, I understand the love and dedication that goes into these products, and in buying them I feel like I am giving something back to my fellow artisans.

Last fall I attended a local craft show to pick up some unique gifts to give to friends and family over the holidays, and that is when I discovered Soap Utopia. These handmade soaps and lip balms are amazing. Not only are they lovely smelling, my favorite being the coconut lime, it reminds me of warm breezy beach days in the tropics, margarita in hand. But they left my skin feeling wonderful, and knowing my toddler could use the same soap since they are free of harsh detergent, phosphates and sulfates make me feel good.

I could go on and on about this stuff, about how soft my lips were after using their lip balms, or how the owner and operator Lily is a sweetheart who places orders at lightening speed and always sneaks a little tidbit in the box for you.

Now I am giving you an opportunity to try these products for yourself.  I am giving away a lovely little gift set courtesy of Lily from Soap Utopia. To enter to win, please leave a comment at the end of this blog and your name will be entered into a draw to win!

Congratulations to Ann D!
