Wonder Product: Roger and Gallet Soaps
I am big on bathing. I would eat my supper in the bathtub if I could. I'd happily lounge in the bath for hours every day if I had the time. So given my bathing obsession, I have sampled many different kinds of soaps.
But I always come back to these -- Roger and Gallet. These French soaps are hefty and substantial, and they feel like butter on your skin when you lather them up. They are also beautifully perfumed -- the linden blossom one is my favourite because when I was in the south of France seven years ago, the linden trees were in full bloom, and so every time I shower, I am transported back to that beautiful tiled bathroom overlooking rolling hills and olive groves and cypress trees.
All of the fragrances have their charms, however, including the lettuce and carrot varieties from the Roger and Gallet nature line. The lettuce is grassy and delightful, in fact.
In Toronto, you can get these fabulous soaps at the Bay and at Holt's. Seek them out if you can -- you won't be disappointed and your skin will be satiny and fragrant all day long!
