[Prem Soaps] is an all organic and vegan bath & beauty company, based in Brooklyn, NY. Each item, down to it's packaging, is made with care for the customer and compassion for the environment as the name Prem (Sanskrit for "love") suggests.
"It felt very creamy while it lathered up and smelled fresh, but subtle. My hands stayed soft all morning without any lotion."
Next I tried out the [Vanilla Cinnamon with Cinnamon Bark] soap in the shower. It has a rougher texture from the cinnamon bark, but still had the creamy lather. The best way I can describe VC w/CB is that it smells like a really sexy guy. I totally recommend grabbing some of these for the man in your life this Christmas.
Okay, maybe it's also the summer heat, but VegWeb is getting a little sexier with this week's giveaway. Prem Soap's Handmade Massage Candle in Orange Anise is so amazingly decadent, it'll transport you to another world. A kinder, gentler world, where you're massaged on clouds made of vegan marshmallows. That may or may not be true. What's definitely true is that it smells amazing, calms your nerves, and instantly relaxes you. What could be better than that? Besides being massaged on cloud of vegan marshmallows?
Fun Handmade Soaps for a Local Lather — Prem Soaps are organic, vegan and made in small batches right in the owner's kitchen. Prem means "pure" in Sanskrit, and these soaps truly are, with a simple base of plant oils, essential oils, water and lye. Try the summery Basil Mint for a refreshing shower or soothe itchy skin with Tea Tree with Ground Chamomile
My favorite product is their Cedarwood and Patchouli Salt Scrub. You have to stir this one up a bit before you use it. The fragranced oil and salt mixture separate a bit. That is normal in salt scrubs. I love the cute way they use canning jars to emphasize the fact that their scrubs are kitchen-made. The scent combination of cedarwood and patchouli is very sensuous. After using this scrub, my skin felt incredibly smooth and like the oils are holding in all the moisture. The scent lingered throughout the night.
Prem Soaps is an all natural, organic, cruelty-free, vegan company based out of Brooklyn, N.Y. that was started by three friends Juliet, Rob and Michellle. Although fairly new the company has quickly gained a following by those who want high-quality vegan products that pamper the skin and are made with love.
This is my all time favorite lip balm/gloss to use because it makes my dry lips so soft. The product goes on smooth without feeling greasy but gives my naturally red pigmented lips a really nice glossy shine. Since I started using it I find I'm not wearing lipstick as much anymore. What also makes this balm a wonderful choice to use on your lips during the summer is that its incredibly soothing and keeps your lips moisturized all day.
Since my skin is usually oily and generally unhappy, I requested two of the soaps with tea tree oil. I know tea tree oil is helpful since it has antiseptic and antimicrobial qualities to it. Which is what I need. I just used the tea tree and chamomile soap in the shower and was so happy with how clean and smooth my skin felt. I was reassured knowing that the soaps are all vegan, organic, and made in a kitchen in Brooklyn, New York. Their packaging is recycled paper and reusable mason jars. Bars of soap run $8 which is reasonable. You should totally check them out.
Every now and then a new business comes along that blows me away in terms of product quality, customer service, and the overall mission of the company.
Everything I have used is excellent. The quality is really top-notch and I love the attention this young company pays to being TRULY eco-friendly and all-natural. You will never find artificial ANYTHING in their products — no colorants, synthetic fragrances, etc. All products are Vegan, and in most cases, USDA organic ingredients are used.
We loved all the soaps (basil clove, oatmeal unscented and eucalyptus with red clover) but I confess that the oatmeal is probably my favorite. I have a little psoriasis on one knee, and I kid you not, when it flares up, it itches like nobody's business. I refuse to treat it with the cocktail of chemicals that are part of the "accepted" protocols so I was very happy to find the oatmeal soap in my goodie box. The combination of olive, avocado and coconut oils are very moisturizing and I find the oatmeal to be very soothing to my irritated skin.
I have to say that the Fizzy Orange Jasmine bath salt made me feel like I'd nearly died and gone to heaven! I was enveloped in orange scent with nice notes of jasmine.. my bathroom smelled like an old fashioned creamsicle..only better! After a rough day, orange essential oil is so nice! Uplifting and relaxing, all at once.
OH my goodness, the coffee soap is the best soap I have ever used! If that does not wake you up in the morning nothing will. I have been using the coffee soap at my kitchen sink it really lathers well and I would recommend this to any coffee lover (like me). The cinnamon with red poppy flowers is in our bathroom, my daughter just loves the scent, it is light but a pretty scent. And the lime with cilantro we use in our laundry room. Why the laundry room? Because the soap gives off such a fresh smell, it really makes our dingy small laundry room a lift. Yes when these soaps are used the smell radiates, and I love that!
Crafted in a Brooklyn kitchen by veg owners Juliet, Michelle, and Rob (yay veg business owners!), this salt scrub is made with only the good stuff: sea salt, coconut, lime, and organic oils. Plus it smells like a piña colada. What's not to love? We can't wait to try it on dry elbows, knobby knees, and sunscreen-covered skin.
Prem Soaps is a little company nestled in Brooklyn, NY that makes organic and vegan home and body products. The really amazing thing about this company is that it is a home-based company and all products are made in the kitchen!
Let me start by saying that the packaging on these products is so gorgeous. I love how they have such a country look to them. The candles are in canning jars and the soaps are wrapped in brown paper. If you have a country themed home, these products are FOR YOU.
So, in my opinion...Prem Soaps is a wonderful company! I love ALL of the products I was sent and am especially loving the Lime With Cilantro soap. The products are clean, vegan and organic...making them very high quality in scent and feel. I love them!!!
The Orange Tinted Lip Balm comes in a lovely tin with a slide-out lid. It tastes just like an orange too! All you do is slide your finger over the surface and then rub it on your lips. Wow...my lips stayed moisturized for hours!
