I am always on the hunt for fun - and let's not forget useful - gifts for friends and family and I've found it all in Mad Soap Company.
Not only is everything handmade with great care, they've got fantastic flavours and scents that are a helluva lot more interesting that than prepackaged basket - snore! - you end up getting every year.
For example, their Chai Tea Lip Balm is the bomb. Made with all-natural ingredients (candelilla wax, shea butter, cocoa butter, olive oil, vitamin E, chai tea flavor oil and natural sweetener), it goes on super smooth and silky - and makes your lips that way too. It's not only long-lasting, it's one of the best lip balms I've ever tried (I chucked out the one I'd just got at the drugstore in favour for this l'il beauty). Add to that, it tastes and smells like chai tea.
And while I'm at it, I've got to tell you about their handmade soaps too. Insanely addictive and completely luxurious, yet at such affordable prices, this might just become your favourite one-stop-shop for the next while.
The scalloped-edged Charcoal Soap (pictured above) has such an invigorating, fresh minty scent, you'll find yourself leaping out of bed in the morning to wash up. And removing all those toxins will make your skin luminous again. All with this one simple product.
If caffeine is your vice, you'll love the Coffee Oatmeal Soap. This gentle exfoliator is made up of ingredients you know and love (distilled water, palm kernel oil, coconut oil, olive oil, castor oil, avocado oil, sodium hydroxide, Fair Trade organic coffee, oatmeal, coffee essential oil, brown sugar, allspice and nutmeg), without any of the jittery side effects. And yes, this one's scent is insanely sumptuous too.
