Today's Product Recommend

I think my soap is helping me deal with overeating issues AND get more vegetables.

Trader Joe's Next to Godliness Oatmeal & Honey Soap Pure Vegetable Soap. It's $1.29 for a two-pack of four ounce bars. It's cruelty-free AND there are only two words in the ingredients list that I can't pronounce.

Here's the thing - this soap smells like delicious, just-baked cookies. There is a hint of spice akin to what you would find in pumpkin bread, but not exactly. I can't totally decipher it - and the oatmeal and honey title doesn't help me. Anyway... since I started using this soap, I do spend a great deal of time standing in the shower smelling the soap. And that's where the overeating issues are addressed. If some of my sensory needs are being met by the aroma of the soap, I have no real compulsion to go down a couple loaves of actual pumpkin bread. Or carrot cake, oatmeal cookies, spice cake, zucchini bread, etc. As I stand in the shower inhaling my soap, the extra, unwanted pounds are melting away!

Furthermore, I can cut down on eating vegetables yet still enjoy their benefits. This soap is "Pure Vegetable". Says so right on the label. And consult your nutritionist to be sure, but I'm pretty confident that if you're rubbing vegetables right into your skin every single morning and again after you exercise - there is little or no need to ingest them at any other time!

Now go buy some! You're welcome.

You are too funny...took me a minute to figure out where you were going with this one!

Can you believe we don't have a Trader Joes' in Salem! Anyway, it is coming and I can't wait!

I will add that soap to my list!

Mmmm....Sounds delightful! I wonder if it would taste a delicious as it smells. ;) This may bring on a whole new meaning to "wash your mouth out with soap."
