Yes I’ve praised this soap before in an earlier post. But I did not mention this.
While the rest of the year I keep a bar of TJ’s HONEY OATMEAL SOAP in the shower, but come summertime, I swap that out for TJ’s TEA TREE OIL SOAP.
Trader Joe’s TEA TREE OIL SOAP is absolutely the #1 Summertime soap. On a hot day there is nothing that cools me off and refreshes me like washing in cold water with this stuff. It has a slightly astringent quality of course due to the tea tree oil. That’s what must make it feel so refreshing.
Now, the only soap that feels even more refreshing than this stuff would be DR. BRONNER’S PEPPERMINT OIL SOAP, which Trader Joe’s does sell as well. But lets face it, that cost’s $10/bottle (Will make another post about this famous stuff, with all the crazy writing all over it)
From a listing on Amazon of ingredients for a bar of the Tree Tree Oil Soap ;
Very Basic, Natural Ingredients
Contains No Laurel / Laureth Sulfates
Cruelty Free – Never Tested on Animals; No Animal Products in Ingredients
Made In Connection With An Upscale Boutique
Comes in Double-Pack (Two 4 oz Bars Per Pack)
Sodium Palmate, Sodium Palm Kernelate, Water, Glycerin, Tea Tree Oil, Sodium Chloride, Pentasodium Pentetate.
also saw this about tea tree oil soap in general:
Tea Tree Oil Soap Soothes the skin with its natural healing properties…
reduces bacteria and inflammation
acts as an antiseptic, antimicrobial, and antifungal.
This would mean you won’t smell as much too!
Two Large Bars of this soap to a pack mean its $1 a bar; WOW! Thats a really good deal for this level of quality health and beauty product. Did you catch that “made in connection with an upscale boutique? in the text above” I bet whoever the original manufacturer really is (any ideas peeps?) they probably sell a bar for $3-4 each when it has their own fancy name on it. But when Trader Joe’s re-brands it under their own label, they can sell for much less (probably the fancy packaging makes it seem worth another $4?! )
Many women use TJ’ TEA TREAL OIL soap in the bathroom basically for the face but trust me, try it in summer in the shower if you haven’t already on the rest of you, too. Its refreshing and feels great and so clean. BUT NOTE: avoid getting it in your eyes (It can sting a bit)
Let me here what you think about this soap for Summer!
