When it comes to gifts, there's one person we can always count on to steer us in the right direction — Oprah! Each year we wait with baited breath to see what will grace her famous Favorite Things list in hopes that we can snag one of her fabulous finds for ourselves. Or Mom, in this case. If you're still in need of the perfect Mother's Day present, the talk show queen's favorite La Chatelaine Luxury Soap Sets are at Amazon and arrive by May 14 with expedited shipping. Better clear some space on the shelf for your "Favorite Child" trophy!
Our motto is, "If it's good enough for Oprah, you know Mom will go wild over it," and these lovely soap sets are no exception. "God is in the details, and the packaging of these triple-milled soaps — crafted in the South of France — is heavenly," Oprah says. "They're also ethically sourced, so you can feel good about buying one set to gift and one to keep." Hear that? You can treat yourself to these splendid suds, too!
Oprah specifically mentions loving the six-piece set — a truly gorgeous assortment of individually wrapped cherry almond, shea, gardenia, lemon verbena, wild fig and coconut milk bars. If you're looking to set aside some of your budget for flowers, there's also a beautiful trio set featuring lavender, lychee bilberry and the aforementioned lemon verbena for just $31. Each assortment comes packaged in a stunning floral box, and the wrapping on each bar is so exquisite, Mom might even think they're too pretty to open!
That said, she should absolutely put these to use. The triple-milled, plant-based soaps contain nourishing ingredients like organic shea butter, calendula, argan oil and vitamin E to cleanse without drying out the skin, and they're free of parabens and phthalates.
Oh, and Oprah isn't the only fan of these French soap sets. Here's what verified Amazon shoppers had to say about them:
"Pure bliss," raved one five-star reviewer. "This collection of soaps offers the user luxury as well as usefulness. The collection comes in an attractive tin that promises something good awaits its opening. Once the tin is opened, you are greeted by a profusion of lovely but complementary scents and the prettiest packaging I've ever seen. The soaps are long-lasting and soften the skin. Worth every dollar."
"This is the second time I have ordered these, as they are truly my favorites," wrote another happy customer. "They are a very substantial size. Each one had a beautiful fragrance, but not overpowering, and they leave my skin moisturized, as they have shea in them along with other wonderful natural ingredients. I am so thrilled to finally get some French milled soaps of very high quality. These were Oprah's favorites...and now I know why."
"I had purchased this for a friend, but I’m keeping it for myself!" admitted a third shopper. "I put the unused bars in my dresser drawers to freshen my clothes and then pull them out when I need a new bar in the shower...If you’re not familiar with this product try it — you’ll love it. It’s the highest quality soap with ethical practices. You’ll be hooked...guilt-free."
