This is a sponsored post. I am an ambassador for Publix Savannah Women’s Half Marathon & 5K. Due to that relationship, I receive a complimentary race registration, as well as other sponsor amenities in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
One of the charms of the city of Savannah is the focus on local. From innovative, locally-sourced ingredients in restaurants to the adorable shops lining River Street, it’s refreshing to see the scarcity of national chains and franchises. In our interactions with the residents, we’ve always experienced a pride in providing original and creative products to locals and visitors alike.
Nourish is one such example. Soap-making started as a kitchen-based hobby for co-founder Shoshanna Walker’s mother. Over the years, that hobby grew into a small, home-based business, and finally expanded into a retail store. Today, Nourish boasts five retail stores in the southeast, selling the same quality, made-with-love soaps and bath products they did from the beginning.
As someone with sensitive skin, it’s nice to be able to have a variety of products from which to use, made of gentle natural ingredients, and with very light, non-chemical scents.
This White Tea Ginger Moisturizing Wash quickly became a favorite. It is refreshing without too strong of a floral note, and turns into thick suds on a body pouf or cloth. After showering, my skin felt incredibly smooth and soft, moisturized by the combination of coconut and olive oils. Especially nice is that feeling of all that hydration being locked in, like I barely even needed to follow up with my regular lotion.
Although I don’t take a lot of baths, I love these Bath Fizzies.
The ginger lime is so relaxing and tropical and I love the oils they release into the water with their gentle fizz. The coconut oil and shea butter leave my skin feeling hydrated and smooth, which is especially nice in the winter months, when I need the extra moisture. Breathing in the fragrant steam while taking a soak leads to a serene experience, and it’s a great way to get me to slow down and enjoy a glass of wine and a good book.
The 100% Natural Lip Balm is an absolute staple. Made with beeswax and shea butter, and with an SPF of 15, it’s perfect for those chapped lips. I always struggle with biting my lips, so this lip balm is a great way to keep them smooth and healthy.
I can’t wait to pay a visit to the Broughton Street location in April to pick up some slices of glycerin soap – I love giving them as gifts (and keeping a few to use at home).
