Giving Soaps is The Gift That Keeps Giving

Disclosure: No compensation was given for this review. I did receive a free product from the manufacturer or their representing PR agency to use and test for the purposes of this review.


As you know already I love makeup and beauty related products. I also love products that are handcrafted, all natural and made to be healthy for the skin and body. Not to mention, I love buying products that give back when you buy. That’s why I am loving these new soaps by Giving Soaps. Giving Soaps is the gift that keeps giving. Keep reading I’ll tell you why.

Giving Soaps are made 100% of plant-derived materials. Right away they blew me away with this. It’s not easy finding really good handmade soaps that also use all plant derived materials. While not certified organic, all ingredients are authentically natural. However the palm oil they use in thier products is always organic, and ethically sourced. I also love they they do not use any synthetic fragrances, colorants, foaming agents or detergents. Many synthetic fragrance bother my skin and make me itch uncontrollably. 

Giving Soaps was nice enough to send us over a few things to try this holiday season. The first thing is thier Headache Eraser, and it really did works. No more ibuprofen for me! This product comes in a small glass roller bottle that you just roll on the areas that you feel your headache. Then maybe a half hour later bam I had headache. I have not tried this on a migraine yet, but my regular average headaches it works on. The ingredients for this product are simple and they are: Avocado Oil, and Essential Oils.

The next product is thier Diabetic Foot Balm. This product can be helpful for diabetic issues. However it can be used even if you don’t have diabetic issues. As it makes the feet feel soft and smooth. I enjoy that this product has hardly any smell, it’s very faint. This product contains Sunflower oil, Sunflower oil is said to provide cardiovascular benefits which is great for diabetics! The ingredients are: Avocado Butter, Sunflower Oil, Coconut Oil, Cocoa Butter, Beeswax, and Tamanu Oil. 



The next product has become my go to product every morning. And that is thier Cinnamon Almond Lotion. This lotion has a sweet almond scent with just a pinch of cinnamon. It goes on smooth, and leaves the skin feeling soft not greasy. Ingredients in this product are: Purified Water, Aloe Vera Liquid, Avocado Oil, Rice Bran Oil, BTMS 50 (a conditioner derived from Rapeseed Oil), Liquid Glycerin, Fractionated Coconut Oil, Stearic Acid, Oat Extract, Sea Buckthorn Extract, Fragrance, *Optiphen (a paraben and formaldehyde-free preservative)


These last 2 products are thier bar soaps. The first one I tried is called Sweet Roses Bar Soap. This soaps is so wonderful smelling. After a shower the smell of roses still lingers on your body. I love it! Best way to describe the smell: A sweet, perfume-y rose fragrance; the classic 1920’s rose scent. Like sitting in the middle of a rose garden in spring. Ingredients include: all nearly natural Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Water, Sodium Hydroxide, Organic Palm Oil, Fresh Goat Milk, Organic Sunflower Oil, Shea Butter, Fragrance.

The last product is a goats milk soap with real oats. It’s called Oatmeal Milk and Honey Bar Soap. I really love the sttle smell of this soap and how clean I feel after using it. It’s ingredients are: Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Water, Sodium Hydroxide, Organic Palm Oil, Fresh Goat Milk, Organic Sunflower Oil, Shea Butter, Fragrance, Oats, Honey
