A cold cocktail on a hot beach, fresh lime shaken with sparkling club soda. We find freshly squeezed lime juice so evocative that a new soap was called for: one that would transport any shower, anywhere, to a breezy oasis by the ocean. So we brought in a ton of lime essential oils (fragrance oils just wouldn’t work for what we wanted, and we wanted this to be in our all natural soap group). Some oils were just weak, while others smelled more like candy than lime due to the process of extracting the oil. Some just didn’t seem limey. And then, after weeks of testing, we found it:
A pure, expressed West Indian lime that you’d swear is fresh squeezed right into the bottle. In fact, it’s so lime-powered that it tints the soap green. That’s right, we don’t use any colorants in Lime Smash soap at all, we just let the essential lime oil do its work and give Lime Smash a real-lime kick.
A wonderful wake-up soap, Lime Smash is also great in a before-heading-out-on-the-town shower, reviving and exciting you for the evening to come (though we cannot be responsible for any uncontrollable margarita cravings it causes.)
Lime Smash handmade soap: a happy place where warm winds blow and work is a distant memory.
Lime Smash is a refreshing soothing soap, great way to wake up in the morning. Callie on 9th Jun 2013
I'm surprised that the other reviewer doesn't think it's limey-smelling. I find it to be wonderful!
When I first opened it up, I thought it wasn't a strong enough smell, but once I started using it the scent started really coming out. Maybe it needs to get past the first "layer" of outer soap?
I'd let them know though - I've found the customer service has always been fantastic with these guys.
Anyway, I loved it. Ann Lynn Clark on 18th Apr 2013
It smells fine, but more like a run-of-the-mill herbal-y soap with just the teeniest hint of lime than a lime cocktail, as the description says. I have a very sensitive nose, so that's not the issue. Unknown on 25th Mar 2013
