Local Love: Bare Skin Bars
Written + Photographed by: Emily Johnson, Cashmere & Plaid
In case you haven't noticed, I am starting to develop a sweet spot for natural body and beauty products. From my Imbue Goods rose water mists to my Wild Hill body scrub and body oil to my herbal bath soak, I am thoroughly enjoying pampering my body without feeling guilty about what chemicals and bad yuckies are being slathered all over me. Recently, I've added a new product to my arsenal of pampering products - enter Bare Skin Bar Bath Bombs.
I came across the beautifully branded company while scrolling through the good ol' Insta and immediately knew I needed to try out the first product in their line - natural, thoughtfully made bath bombs. The bath bombs are made in small batches here in Vancouver, by a passionate creative who left her 9-5 to pursue a career making simple, almost all-natural beauty products designed for the conscientious who are looking to add a little bit of luxury to their lives.
The bath bombs are simply delightful. They're created for the people who are seeking an alternative to the extravagant, bubbling, sparkling, explosive Lush bath bombs but don't necessarily need all the ingredients to be unscented, 100% organic, vegan, fair trade, and locally sourced. That being said, just about all of the ingredients are natural and healing and sourced from within Canada!
While all four bath bombs in the collection have a similar base, each one has a few unique ingredients to create a different experience depending on what you're looking for and what your body needs.
The pink bath bomb features a combination of rose clay and coco butter to create a calming bomb that helps you relax and unwind, perfect for right before bed. The blue bomb has sea salt and coconut oil added to it to create a detoxifying soak, (excellent for Sunday afternoon baths). The green bath bomb has spirulina powder and hemp seed oil in it, transforming your bath water a fun shade of green while providing your body with all sorts of restorative goodness. Lastly, the white bath bomb has oatmeal and Shea butter in it that work together to leave your skin feeling super soft and help soothe eczema and other skin issues.
The collection of bath bombs made their debut at Fall For Local, a pop up market in North Vancouver last weekend. Although that was the only place you could purchase them, keep your eyes over on their Instagram account to find out when they'll be launching their online shop and where you'll be able to find them around the city.
Over on the Bare Skin Bar Instagram page you'll also find more information on the company, gorgeous product shots, and even a few behind the scenes action shots and video.
