I was given the opportunity to do a review for Purely. They are a direct sales company that sales products related to and including essential oils. I spoke with Dianna Anderson (https://www.facebook.com/diana.anderson.585559) one of their consultants.
After reviewing her website http://bepure.ly/index.aspx I decided that I’d love to try their bath bar. First Dianna sent me some small samples of both Relaxation and Shield, while I was waiting on the full size bar of Relaxation. Relaxation is described as “Relax Bath Bar contains essential oils that help promote relaxation and stress relief.” I’m a mom of 3 kids! I can definitely use that!! The Shield Bath Bar “contains essential oils that help support your immune system and cleanse impurities.” The Relaxation sample had a very strong smell, even in a tiny sample. The Shield Bar smelled strong as well, but it was more of clean scent.
When I got the full size bar of Relaxation, it had the same strong smell as the small sample. It has a combination of lavender and bergamot oils in it, I’m guessing that’s what I was smelling. I know some people really like the smell of bergamot, but apparently I don’t. Shortly after I received the bath bar I was at a shop that had bergamot soap. I didn’t care for the smell of it either.
However, it was a very pretty bar. The unique blend of ingredients marbled thru it and it’s unique shape from being hand crafted made it very pleasing to look at. It is a 4 oz. bar, that makes it slightly smaller than a store bought bar of soap for those of us who can’t visualize 4 oz. of soap (yup, that’s me too). It didn’t dry out my skin as some soaps do, likely because it’s made with goats milk and olive oil. It lasted about 2.5-3 weeks.
It’s priced at $12 a bar which from what I’ve seen in hand crafted soaps is on the higher end of the price range. Similar soaps range in price from $4 up from what I’ve seen.
Purely has a ton of other products as well. They have everything from olive oil for cooking to men’s body care and they have individual essential oils as well. If you’d like to learn more about Purely and their products feel free to contact Dianna and I’m sure she’d be glad to help you out.
