One of the things that I miss in Manila is buying super fragrant Bath & Body Works products at reasonable prices. And the thing that I noticed is that the commercial brand of liquid hand soaps to be found in the supermarket have an extra strong fragrance – so strong that it smells artificial! Believe it or not for the past 3 years I’ve used the complimentary hotel toiletries (namely the liquid bath soap and shampoos) as our liquid soap in our bathroom, guest bathroom & the kitchen.
Yes I confess, I take hotel toiletries home! And have never had to buy liquid hand soap…until recently! (We haven’t been traveling as much.) After 3 long years it was time for me to finally buy hand soap. Here’s a tip: You don’t need to use commercial hand soaps, check out the body washes or body shampoos as well. After sniffing almost all the big bottles in GrandLucky Superstore Sudirman I found this delicious smelling body shampoo: Leivy Nature’s Touch (with Ginseng). I love it! And I felt affirmed after one guest in the recent tea party I hosted actually asked me what hand soap I was using! Yay! It’s smells as delicious as any Bath & Body Works product at a fraction of the price per mL!
Another amazing scent and brand that I found in GrandLucky Superstore Sudirman, which I use for bathing, is this Seven Palms Spaoasis Body Wash in Coconut Lime. It’s almost as expensive as Bath & Body Works BUT it is paraben free and made with certified organic nutrients. As someone who is allergic to almost everything this is a big plus for me and worth the extra expense. I don’t use it everyday though. I save it for times when I am having a pampering bat and I am especially missing the beach. It smells like those heavenly summers in Boracay! How I miss our famous powder fine white sand beach+ party island of the Philippines! If you love the beach like I do, you will love this body wash!
You can find both these sensational scents at GrandLucky Superstore Sudirman. I cannot guarantee they will have stock for long, because as many of you know stock is quite erratic. If you see something you like, buy it because you don’t know if it’s still going to be available when you come back – and you don’t know when they will restock. =P Do you agree?

[…] also figured that if I bought a big bottle of sensational-smelling body milk instead of buying pre-packaged strong-odoured hand soap, it was not only better for my nose, but […]
