South Of France: Review & Giveaway -- CONTEST CLOSED!

CONTEST CLOSED! CONTEST CLOSED! CONTEST CLOSED!


Not long ago, I was more than Blessed to receive a sampling of South of France Body care products.


My package contained Liquid Shea Butter soap, Lime-Basil Body Lotion, and Two GIGANTIC bars of soap! The soap was scented in Pure Gardenia & Verbena.


I'm not sure I have the words to describe the Heavenly scent of those soaps. Just amazingly fresh, clean, and pure. Not overpowering at all.



Whoever thought to pair the Lime-Basil Lotion with the Verbena soap was genius! They pair together so well that you do not need perfume at all to pull it all together.

The fragrance lingers, but it's not stifling. You just smell clean -- like you've walked through a flower garden after a summer rain.

The Shea Butter liquid soap went into my kitchen by the sink. It helps keep my hands hydrated and isn't harsh at all like washing your hands with dish detergent.




The soaps from South of France are French-milled. This gives the soaps a smoother, softer feel. I love these soaps because they make a great lather and the fragrance of the soaps as you're bathing feels like you're luxuriating in an aromatherapy spa!

The body lotion is very light. A little goes a long way. Again, the fragrance is just right. It works with the soap to keep you smelling good!
The wonderful folks at South of France have generously offered one of my readers their very own assortment gift basket that will include a bar soap, liquid soap, lotion, body wash, and travel bars.

South of France will ship the gift basket directly to the winner!
