BATH & BODY: Perlier White Almond Soap

What is it: A bar soap (125 g) enriched with almond oil.

Why should I buy it? Great for dry skin, and smells great!

Where can I buy it? $7.50 for a 125g bar at Perlier.com...but try Ebay and check your local TJ Maxx and Marshall's.The Bottom Line: I like the soap and find it very gentle on the skin and hydrating, especially useful during the winter months. I would actually enjoy a stronger scent though and am curious about checking out the other products from this line.

Additional information:

From Perlier.com: White Almonds have been cultivated for years, and are known for their richness and ability to nourish the skin. The Greeks and Romans extracted oil, milk, and flour from the almonds for its nourishing, moisturizing, and protective skincare qualities. Perlier’s White Almond recipes offer therapeutic benefits for both dry and delicate skin types. Sweet White Almond Milk and White Almond Oil are richly concentrated in natural emollients and nutrients, leaving the skin fresh, smooth, and supple. Almonds contain large amounts of magnesium, an essential enzyme that plays a part in the formation and maintenance of skin protein. And in addition to all its moisturizing properties, White Almond leaves a delicate sweet scent on the skin.
