Two years ago, I wrote a blog post about a hand soap that I had a serious obsession with, San Diego Soap Companies, Honey and Blackberry soap.
I kept a big stash of it in my house at all times, until “D-day” arrived. Discontinued!! Are you freaking kidding me!
I swear I have been combing Ebay on a daily basis since that time to try and find ANY and ALL remaining bottles of this stuff left on the planet earth. I have yet to find any, by the way.
I thought all hope was lost and I would frequently go around smelling every product that had the word “Honey” in it, hoping to catch even a glimpse of anything that smelled remotely close to my beloved soap.
Let me tell, my perseverance finally paid off my friends…
Allow me to introduce you to Le Couvent Des Minimes Nourishing Hand Cream Honey & Shea
This French hand cream is almost an EXACT smell match for my soap.
Its hard to describe smells but it has a “very distinct” slightly sweet but not overpowering smell of real honey. Its not super greasy and makes your hands feel super smoothified. The only thing I don’t like about this cream is that I look like a weirdo when I wear it, cause I keep sniffing my hands. Oh well, why be normal.
For those of you who had been asking me if I knew where to get the Honey and Blackberry soap, try this and see if it jogs the ‘ole memory. You can buy it at Ulta and online. Its a little on the pricey side for a small tube, but your nose will thank you.
