If you've spent any time checking out artisan soap makers, then you are sure to have seen Catie's Bubbles (named after the soap maker's daughter) tickling fancies. Fabulous fragrances and phenomenal foam are making fans with these French soft soaps. Catie's Bubbles Shaving Soap, Le Piment de la Vie is one of their most popular scents.
All of these soaps are handcrafted with high quality ingredients that are completely vegetable and fruit-based. The seemingly simple recipe reminds some of Martin de Candre. Coconut oil and glycerin are sure to provide the moisturizing, glide, and protection that you are looking for in a shaving requisite. The hygroscopic nature of glycerin and the soap salts mean that this is a thirsty soap. It has the capacity to absorb large amounts of water as you create your lather. It also means it should be dried completely after each use to ensure longevity and texture. This soap may experience random discoloration as it is exposed to air; this is normal and not harmful.
Le Piment da la Vie or "Spice of Life" is a complex fragrance - a little bit spice, a little bit sweet, a little bit earthy, all around amazing! The heart of this aroma is a blend of spices: clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. Please note: if you have spice allergies or sensitive skin and experience any irritation, discontinue use immediately.
With shaving soaps as with life, variety is key - and so is Catie's Bubbles Shaving Soap, Le Piment de la Vie.
