I hope you are all enjoying the last few weeks of summer vacation. I know my kids are savoring these last days of sleeping in, enjoying lazy days out on the water and spending the long days with their friends. These are the rare moments that make me miss childhood! Our team has been working feverishly behind the scenes getting ready for all things FALL! We made all of our fall bar soaps last month and now are hard at work making lotions, scrubs, foaming soaps, and more for our fall launch which will happen right after Labor Day.

Sharing the Love
Our team, especially our makers, LOVE when you give us reviews and feedback on our products. Here are a few recent comments that really made our hearts full!
Featured this week are reviews on our Gentle Cleanse Facial Wash with Aloe & Oat & our Beach Bum Handmade Natural Bar Soap!
Thank you Sarah T and Katherine M for your feedback!
Gentle and effective! Previously had allergic reaction to a big name gentle face wash and switched to the maker of my favorite soap; Perfectly Natural. Definitely did not disappoint.
I have tried many many soaps from many brands and artisans. Perfectly Natural is my absolute favorite for price vs value. There are so many scents, and beach bum is my absolute favorite scent in the world. It smells like the beach, and I am transported to the OBX, rinsing off in the outdoor shower, breeze blowing, sunscreen, and the warmth of summer. I can't help but smile when I smell it. The soap itself isn't drying and lathers so nicely. I like this one and the salt bar.
