South of France Refreshing Lemon Mint Liquid Soap



Body wash might not be the most glamorous product, but it's one of my favorites nonetheless.  As I see it, it's a low-risk product - inexpensive and very rarely unusable - so while I have my favorites that I keep coming back to, I'm also constantly trying new ones.  My most recent find is South of France's Liquid Soap in Lemon Mint.  It's a castile-based soap - made from vegetable oils and potassium hydroxide, rather than surfactants like sodium lauryl sulfate or decyl glucoside - which I prefer, and while it's technically more of a hand soap, I've been using it in the shower.  South of France does make shower gels, but across both the shower gels and the liquid soaps, this one seems to be the only one that contains only essential oils, without any synthetic fragrance.

As the name suggests, the smell is bright and refreshing - clean and lemony with just a touch of mint peeking through.  The soap lathers well, doesn't dry out my skin, and I love the convenience of the pump bottle.  It's definitely on the more liquid side - thinner and runnier than a lot of other body washes - which seems to make the bottle go down a little quicker, but at just over $5, I really can't bring myself to care too much.  

I hope South of France will come out with more essential-oil based fragrances, but in the meantime, I can see the lemon mint becoming a regular in my body wash rotation.  If you're in the market for a budget friendly body wash or hand soap, it's definitely worth checking out!

    1. It should last me at least a month. I've been using it almost 2 weeks now and I'm about 1/3 of the way done.

  3. I always seem to be trying out new body washes. I feel like I go through them so fast since I use them for shaving too. So I don't like to spend a ton of money on them. I will have to check this one out sometime.

    1. Oh I meant to ask if the pump twists to close after you open it?

    2. I'm the same...I don't want to spend a ton on something I go through quickly either! The pump doesn't twist closed, nope. So not at all travel friendly, but otherwise a lovely product :)

    3. Aw well I will still have to try it when I'm staying at home. I travel a lot with my bf, who is a truck driver, so all my stuff has to be travel friendly. Sometimes I put stuff in travel containers but they always seem to want to leak.
