Dr Bronner’s Pure Castille Soap

Posted by Lipglossiping On December - 4 - 2009

I’m a big fan of Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps, they’re multi-use and an absolute must have for travelling.  Fantastically, they’re Suphate-Free and you can use them for washing, laundry, dish washing, cleaning, shampooing and even toothbrushing!  Although I’m not too sure about that last one…

My favourite use for this little bottle of rose-scented magic has to be cleaning my makeup brushes.  You just need the tiniest amount.  I’ve washed my brushes at least 3 times using the bottle above and it’s barely made any impact at all.

It leaves my brushes feeling soft, clean and conditioned, gets out all the crud and all that remains is a gentle rose-scent.  What more can I ask for?

More varieties?  Well… you can have: Peppermint (nice), Eucalyptus (bleh), Almond (yum), Rose (yay), Baby Mild (boring), Citrus (zesty!), Lavender (bleh) and Tea Tree (meh).   Please excuse the childish running commentary that accompanied the variety listing… sometimes I just can’t help myself.

Oh yes, they don’t test on bunny rabbits either.

INGREDIENTS: Water, Saponified Organic Coconut, Organic Palm and Organic Olive Oils (w/Retained Glycerin), Organic Hemp Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Essential Oils, Citric Acid, Vitamin E

    How do you wash your brushes? Do you mix the soap w/ water or something?

    That’s crazy that a soap can do all that washing. Although I don’t know if I’d want to use something that washes my dishes to also wash my hair…

    I love these, so happy I’m not the only one with nearly a full set! Like you, I don’t like the tea-tree or eucalyptus ones much either …

    Yes, like ndoodles I’m really not sure how I’d feel about having my hair smell like my dishes – but it sounds like a wonder soap!

    I use Dr. Bronner’s liquid soap in the shower (peppermint) and also to shampoo my hair. It’s great! My husband uses their bar soap (baby mild) in the shower and loves it. And I love how it smells on him after he showers.
