I first came across Global Soap about a month ago when we attended the Go Green Expo in Christchurch. I wandered past their stall eyeing everything up, and settled on a few little products that piqued my curiosity. The first was the lip smoothie. I’ve never really been one for lip gloss or lip stick, but these intrigued me (and smelt delicious) so I decided to give one a try. I also picked up the clothing stain remover bar and some of their baby and toddler soap, which I gifted to my sister to try on her 2 little boys.

The lip smoothie I was really very impressed with, and have almost used it all up. It is a bit softer/more smooth than some other natural lip balms I have tried, and the flavour is really yummy 🙂 They also do a range of lip tints which are a natural alternative for lipsticks/colours; I mentioned I’m not normally one for lip colours but I think I will try one of these next because I liked the smoothie so much – how adventurous of me!
I had never tried a natural clothing stain remover before finding this one, and was very captivated by the idea of it coming in the form of a soap bar. I first tried it on some old t-shirts that had old anti-perspirant marks on them, these stains had been there for a while so I wasn’t holding out much hope. I was genuinely quite surprised at the difference it made, considering the age of the marks. A couple of weeks after this I woke up one morning with a bloody nose (sorry, TMI?), and my pillowcase was a bit worse for wear. The Global Soap stain remover tackled the mess just as well as any non-natural product would, so I was very happy that I did not have to retire my favourite pillowcase! At the time I wasn’t certain I would be reviewing the products, so unfortunately didn’t take any before/after pictures. But, luckily(?), I drop food on my clothing on a regular basis, so next time I use the product I will share some images so you can all see for yourselves! Or, even better, you could buy some and give it a try 🙂
