Five Monkeys shop (referring to her five daughters) and is still tweaking things but I knew I had to try her stuff.
This is a really nice bar of soap! I'm really liking the hot process soaps that have been popping up for me lately. I don't know why I've ignored them for so long. As mentioned, this is unscented. You don't even get that slightly 'soap oil' scent that you sometimes get in unscented bars. The oatmeal has not been scratchy at all, even though some of the bits look quite large. After breaking through that initial 'skin' new bars of soap sometimes have, this one lathers like a dream. Tons of light, sudsy, lather that lasts the entire shower and rinses cleanly and easily. My skin did not feel dry or tight, and my usual winter itchies have once again been beaten into submission.

Shipping was quick and very reasonable. Even though Five Monkeys is very local to me, I chose to have my order shipped to go through the entire shopping experience. Other products in the shop include massage oils and massage candles, and lotions. I decided not to try the lotion with my first order because I noticed it is a whipped shea formula and all of my previous experiences with whipped shea are that sort of hard-but-melty consistency that I don't like. And there were no smaller sized jars, so I didn't want to commit to a full sized one. I think Traci is still working on other products too.
