Put the Lime in the Coconut...

Have you ever stumbled across a product and found it so incredibly amazing that you want to shout from the roof tops for all to hear? Something you love so much that you tell everyone you know that they NEED to try it?

This happened to me 12 months ago. A friend introduced me to what has become my luxury item. You know that one item that we find money in our budget for as a treat to ourselves for the hard work we do running a home, sticking to our savings plans, working 9-5, raising our children and everything in between.

The best part about my luxury item, my amazing find, is that by buying it I actually save money when it comes to the grocery shopping.

Let me introduce you to Joap.

Joap is handmade soap. Actually it's far more than just hand made soap. It's beautifully created, artisan inspired, completely natural and great for your skin.

The hardworking creator and soaper behind Joap is the lovely Jo. Hence the name, Jo + soap = Joap. It's brilliant!

Jo spends hours testing each batch of soap to make sure it is of the highest quality before she will offer it for sale, that's every single batch made. Ongoing testing is important to ensure that the soap you take into your shower or bath has been mixed correctly so no nasty chemicals are left behind. This is the same quality of testing you would find happening in a commercial soap lab.

Joap was created when Jo wanted to find a suitable soap to help family members with their sensitive skin after having no luck with any items available over the counter for this reason you can be sure that the soap she creates for you will gently cleanse you skin while nourishing and moisturising. Jo takes the time to source the finest ingredients to ensure that each bar of Joap is gentle on your skin with variations designed specifically for those with sensitive skin issues. Goats milk, coconut milk, butter milk, tussah silk and even vegan options are available. Jo also happens to have the best customer service I have ever come across, she is super easy to work with and will help you find something to suit your needs.

If all of that isn't enough to sell you then wait till you hear some of the amazing scents she has created. In my Joap drawer right now I have my Christmas collection with scents including Elf Sweat, Tinsel, Santas Cookies, Sugar Plum Fairy and Candy Cane. The Crystal bowl on my vanity currently holds Angel - exactly like the Thierry Mugler perfume - Chanel no.5 - again like the perfume - Blue which is like the Ralph Lauren perfume and Island Kiss (my personal favourite) which is like the Escada perfume.
But don't worry if you're not as into your perfume scents as I am because some of Joaps best sellers are scents including Rose, Black Raspberry and vanilla and Lime and Coconut - and if you don't spend the rest of the day singing "put the lime in the coconut and drink it all up" then you're not listening to the right music.

It gets better still as Joap does more than soap. Her range also includes bubble bath bars, these are amazing, create more bubbles than your kids could imagine and come in the same delicious scents that the soaps do. Then there is the bath salts and also recently Jo has added lip balm to her repertoire and with custom orders lotion bars are also an option and let me tell you the lotion bars are supreme. Seriously the best form of lotion I have ever used, my legs and hands LOVE them!

You can find Joap on Facebook along with a link to her hand-made store or you can email Jo at

Don't even think about it, just keep singing and dance on over to her page.
