Sadly "soap on a rope" is no longer popular and to be honest, you battle to find a soap on a rope in South Africa, let alone find a good one. I have always enjoyed this type of soap format and prefer it to a conventional bar, especially for showering. Overseas you have such a wonderful variety to choose from, but I have found a delightful Mango "soap on a rope" from one of my "fave" shops Rain.
To me its a "no brainer" why have a bar of soap slipping through your fingers, when you can hang this fruity smelling soap around the temperature control arm or tap. The "Kiddiewinks" and my hubby love this "life like" mango hanging in the shower, as its really quick and easy to use. This glycerine soap does not contain synthetic ingredients that will cause skin irritations.
For those who have sons that go through that horrid stage, where soap isn't in their thought process this has been a "god send".
I highly recommend this mango as it does encourage them to actually use soap instead of just standing under the shower and expecting the washing process to miraculously happen! Some of you will read this and understand where I am coming from, whilst others will be just plain horrified!
Just had a thought.....maybe its only my children....oops!

Several weeks ago I bought my first product from the French brand Yves Rocher to read review I have to admit upfront that even though the brand has been around for 50 years overseas and in South Africa for several years, I have never been attracted to any of their products, for no other reason than I find the brand to be confusing. This confusion isn't due to the french names etc, as I did french at school and have worked with French products my whole working career, so that's not where my problem lies. I think the colouring and the packaging is what I have a problem with. I find it to be a "mish mash" of colours and messages all being presented in a slightly "cheap" way. The saying "Less is More" springs to mind, so hence, I have been overlooking this brand.
Once I looked deeper into the product offering and spoke to a consultant, I started to get an understanding of the Yves Rocher brand.
My first purchase was their Velvety Cleansing Milk -Smoothing Effect containing 3 Detoxifying Teas.
I have since bought the matching Perfecting Toning Lotion - Anti Fatigue Effect. Yves Rocher has surprised me yet again, (my first surprise was the price point of this imported brand) the toner isn't a liquid as with most toners, but it has a gel consistency. It did feel a little strange when I first used as my brain has been programmed to associate liquid with a toner, but I can honestly say that I prefer this toning gel over a conventional toner.As with all toners, it effectively removed all traces of my cleanser and left my skin feeling refreshed and ready for the next step. I don't need to remind you that I am not an advocate of using toners that contain alcohol and this is alcohol free. It can also be used over the eye area and has been tested under Dermatological and Opthalmological supervision.
Another bonus to using a gel, there is little wastage, as the gel sits on top of the cotton wool pad and doesn't get absorbed and ultimately thrown away. I have used the toner for a couple of weeks already and I have used far less than my usual liquid toner, so its really economical. This 200ml Toner retails for R100 and is the same price as the cleanser and both offers "Great" value for money!If you want my advice - the next time you walk past an Yves Rocher counter in Woolworths, do yourselves a favour and STOP! As I would hate for you to miss out, as I did.. .p.s. just look past the colour/range confusion and look a little deeper into this affordable imported skin care range that's somewhat of a well kept secret.
I have earmarked other products to try, so I will keep you updated with my reviews.
Are you ready for a Gwen Stefani nail polish collection? If you answered yes (and why wouldn't you?), then you'll be excited to hear the singer has just inked a deal with OPI! And as with just about everything Gwen does, you can expect a punk twist to the collaboration, which was, incidentally, inspired by the 2013 Met Gala theme, "Punk: Chaos to Couture."Launching in January, the limited-edition lineup will include the following Gwen-centric polishes: Hey Baby and I Sing in Color, both glossy crèmes; Love.Angel.Music.Baby. and 4 in the Morning, both semimatte satins; Push and Shove, a bold chrome that comes with a complimentary base coat; and In True Stefani Fashion, a sparkly glitter.There will also be a special boxed set featuring Over & Over A-Gwen, a bold red lacquer that pays homage to Gwen's signature red lip, and Swarovski Elements, a nail art kit consisting of nail glue, black crystals, and metallic studs in bar, circle, square, and diamond shapes."OPI wanted to create a collection as dramatic, diverse, and glamorous as its namesake," said OPI's artistic director, Suzi Weiss-Fischmann. "With crème and glitter hues, new satin matte texture, a mirrored chrome, and Swarovski Elements, Gwen Stefani by OPI presents the latest in pigments and finishes, while combining elements of haute couture and street fashion."
