Yardley London Oatmeal & Almond Soap

You’ve probably heard of this elegant and understated beauty soap or seen it in stores. Yardley is an older company (established 1770!) and since their inception they have expanded their scents.

When I was 10 years old my mother purchased a bar of their Rose soap. I was so captivated by it (my obsession with product began at a young age) I saved up my coins and bought a bar of Oatmeal & Almond from the discount store for $1.

Before I did that, I swiped a bar from her. Shhhhhhh, don’t squeal on me!

Oatmeal and Almond has a slightly sweet, comforting scent of almond and contains oat flour, which gives it a very light exfoliating effect.

Since the age of 12 I’ve been using this soap. When I started doing more online shopping in 2006, I veered more toward homemade soaps but every once in a while I would come back to this one.

I have used the English Lavender and Aloe Cucumber bars. Both are good but I personally prefer O&A. I use English Lavender as a hand soap and I keep it in that soap dish I showed you all. Β πŸ™‚

Have you ever tried this?
