Dark wood floors and tables, colorful rows of sliced soaps, and jam jars of creams and masks express the homemade roots of this beautiful Israeli skincare line. First-time visitors are greeted and ushered to a hand-washing station at the rear of the store where they can cleanse with lavender apple, vanilla coconut, patchouli, or lemon mint body scrubs--made with Dead Sea salt and macadamia oil--and then moisturize with a corresponding butter cream. The softening ablutions energize a browse among the cleanly scented, simply bottled and labeled skin and bath goods, like ginger-orange body gel polishers; rose bath milk; and musk, grass, and peach glycerin soaps. Soap flakes are sold by the pound and can be used in the bath or a sachet, while solid soap-loofah cleansing bars contain scrubbing fibers inside. The kiwi mango body butter is a particularly rich, deep orange brick, and the mineral powder bath balls make for a dreamily fragrant soak. Room sprays, candles, and ceramic soap dishes accessorize the collection; and rustically boxed gift baskets with themes like the Energizer, the Relaxing Patchouli, and the Shower Mix make sweet-smelling grab-and-go goodies.Extra
