As much as I love bath & body products, I usually don't get too excited over liquid hand soap, but the invigorating scent of South of France Natural Body Soap Lemon & Mint Liquid Soap is delightfully addicting. Although I love sugary sweet bath products I want something with a clean fresh scent in the kitchen. South of France's lemon and mint fragrance is energizing and purely wonderful. Made with Coconut Oil, Vitamin E and Olive Oil, it leaves hands soft and refreshed. Based in North Carolina, the company also makes a line of natural food snacks including Sweet Potato Chips, Veggie Chips, Avocado Oil Chips and Cinnamon Apple Chips. Don't they all sound amazing? South of France products can be found at mass retailers and natural stores across the country. The SRP of the liquid soap is $5.99. GoodHealthNaturalProducts.com.
We're long-time fans of Perrier, but hadn't yet tried the Pink Grapefruit and Lime in the new Slim Cans. The convenient slim cans are perfect for traveling, fitting in the car's cupholder, packing in a tote or briefcase. My favorite is still the original, it's light, refreshing and the perfect beverage with lunch, dinner or an afternoon pick-me-up. I pour mine in a wine glass over ice and after all these years, still get a kick out of the bubbles. We found a case of 30/8.45-oz. cans for $18.28 at Costco.
