Welcome back, ladies. I hope your holidays were excellent, or at the very least tolerable and over quickly. I had a nice time doing pretty much nothing except watching old movies, cooking, taking walks, and going to bed early—even (especially?) on New Year’s Eve. None of which has anything to do with the topic of this post, which is this Roland Pine Shea Butter Soap from one of my favorite indie beauty companies, Soap & Paper Factory. I had an extra bar of it lying around, so I brought it on our recent trip to Philly, where my boyfriend Paul fell in love with it. Which is understandable: its pine tree scent is truly superior. I went looking for more of it, and unfortunately it’s sold out at the moment, but due back in a little bit (you can also find it on eBay, but marked up).
I think this soy candle is even better than the soap, and also far superior to certain other pine-scented candles that cost a ton more. I’m also a fan of their hand cream—it’s rich, but absorbs quickly— as well as this reed diffuser, and this home fragrance spray.
Also, if pine scents aren’t your thing, you might want to check out some of Soap & Paper Factory’s other (always gorgeously packaged) products, like this very pretty citrus and floral room spray.
