Soap Stars

Not your typical bar soaps, these supper suds are so pretty you’ll probably want to use them as loo decorations instead of body washers. But, after an overwhelming couple of months (Obama…holidays…Obama!), you deserve to mellow things out and be pampered. Grab a barm head for your nearest tub (whether it’s yours or not!) and lather away.
