I love a beautiful soap – I’ve got the prettiest little soap dish in white ceramic with a tiny white bird on it and it’s too lovely not to use – and I like to have something a little bit different and not too chemically. Soap can hold the most beautiful smells and while hand washing isn’t exactly glamorous it’s one of those necessities that I think it is always worth making pleasurable.

So, to Soapsmith, whose soaps are made in London using traditional cold pressing and uses glycerine, oils (such as coconut, avocado and olive) and butters to moisturise and cleanse. What’s even better about them are their quirky scents and names. They’re all called after London areas, such as Bloomsbury (fresh rose, honeysuckle, primrose and peony), Green Park (peppermint, spearmint and cedarwood) and Limehouse (lime, lemongrass and litsea cubeba (no, no idea)). 

The soaps are wonderfully aromatic, chunky in the hand and a great price at £7.95. There are other products from Soapsmith but it’s the traditional soaps that have got me hooked. Find more about the range HERE
