One of my most-read posts is this one, proving that there’s definitely a market for super pale base products.

Soapsmith Bloomsbury Bath Soak

It’s a tricky time of year: the seasons are finally changing – the blackbirds are singing again, I’ve seen my first blossoming tree, and there was actually sun for more than half an hour at a time yesterday – but it’s still cold enough to make a bath seem appealing. Soapsmith Bloomsbury Bath Soak is the ideal […]
