I have tried Suki products which is clinically proven natural solutions skincare that works but it is a tad expensive. Need an alternative.

Dr Bronner's liquid castille soaps.

post #5 of 14

Dr. Bronner's is really good, and all the gibberish on the bottle makes great toilet reading material. Another thing that you can do is make your own soap- It's a fairly simple process, very cost effective and good for your soul. When I started making my own I couldn't go back to any of the standard Dove/Irish Spring stuff. You can add almost anything that sounds good and it works. Oatmeal is one of my favorite soap ingredients, but you can make soap with honey, lemon, herbs, beer... Homemade soap makes a great gift too.

Burts Bees and Dr. Bronner's is what was suggested. I know of these because last year I was searching for body wash and ended up with suki skincare products, definitely a good option. I don't want to try these now because I'd feel like I was downgrading. 


This Salux sounds good. It also does whole body. But I alredy exfoliate with a bath glove and then use a in-shower body moisturizer. I think I'l give these a go. It is very hard to get a hold of. Any ideas?


I'll look for Dr Broonners and Burts Bees more thoroughly.

In no way will you be downgrading. Read the ingredients on the Dr Bronners. If anything don't pay for some boutique specialty thing where you get gouged on a name. It'll end up being exactly like  you see in this forum lol. If you can't reasonably eat some of the ingredients then it shouldn't go on ya.



keep it simple,  and why waste time on a moisturizer when it could be all in one.

So Dr Bronner's products contain castille soap which is  ingredient olive oil. Burt's Bees contain Royal jelly which is ingredient honey. I've heard good things of both, but which is better?

Im pretty much sold on Burt's Bee's products because honey contains Sodium, Potassium, Calcium, Mangnesium benefits vs Olive Oil (Dr Bronners).

lol nice picture!


don't forget it also has Coconut, Hemp and Jojoba oils in addition to the Olive oil. Coconut oil alone is top notch for stuff. Either way get some tiny samples of each you'll be able to tell right away what is best for ya.

I'll be buying me some SUper Hard salux cloth. The exfoliating glove I use right now is pretty harsh, I reckon the salux cloth wont be quite as harsh.

 I have ended up with these two L'occitane products, I beleive they are on par with Burt's Bees, if not better. These are Ultra Rich Body Scrub (which as u pointed out is rather moisturising as well as exfoliating). Voted BEST LUXURY BODY SCRUB

Then ALmond SHower Oil. This is a best-seller and Awarded BEST EVER BODY WASH

“The richest of oils which cleverly lathers up when it meets the water and the gorgeous almond scent is instantly calming after a hectic day.”

I think since I'd be using salux cloth for exfoliating, it kinda makes the Ultra Rich Body Scrub redundant and go for Almond Shower Oil.

I'm also looking at Burt's Bees Rosemary and Peppermint. And Radiance Exfoliating Body Wash. The site is down atm

1. Burt's Bees Fabulosly Fresh Peppermint & Rosemary Body Wash 

Some say Almond Shower Oil is overhyped. However I think I'll buy both anyways because a lot has been said about scent of L'occitane. Although the particular Burt's Bees mentioned is also big on scent frame.
