I love it when BellaSugar readers post user reviews for products I'm dying to try but haven't yet. Case in point: this review of Filthy Farmgirl Sassy Honey Oatmeal Soap ($5). I wrote about this brand a while back, but MotoLinz actually took the initiative and ordered some. Here's what she had to say:
I have a cold and felt like total crap today, so what better excuse to come home early and try out my nifty new soaps? I ran a bath and decided to give Filthy Farmgirl's Sassy Honey Oatmeal a go.
I bought the 5-ounce bar, which is a decent size. The packaging is so cute that I almost couldn't bear to take it out, so I slipped the paper off the bar and left it intact. (The label will sit on the bathroom counter for a week or so before I finally throw it away.)

Here's a photo of the naked bar next to my BE Flawless Face brush for size reference. I realize this is basically useless to those of you who don't have this particular brush, but I figured it was more attractive than using a tampon.
The darker brown bit is a scrubbier oatmeal, while the lighter brown is smooth and silky. When you lather it up, you get a good bit of both, so I was pleased with that. I was a little worried about how my skin would feel post-bath, because some of the glycerin-based soaps tend to make my skin feel dry or filmy. Not so with the Filthy Farmgirl, though. It doesn't feel like I just put on lotion, but my skin does feel soft and moisturized.
Overall, I enjoyed my Filthy Farmgirl bath experience. I only wish it had a bit more honey and oatmeal scent; the smell, while nice, was far more cinnamon-y. But it did make my skin feel nice.
