Jack Frost & Aqua Velva:

Today is "Steambath Factory Wednesday" and since I only have one of these soaps at the moment, that means Jack Frost which is becoming a favorite of mine the more I use it. It has a warm sugar with a little hint of hard peppermint candy and after blooming this soap, I can now detect a little hint of vanilla in there as well.

All in all, I would definitely recommend that you get this soap. If you love Tiki Bar, then you'll love this soap. This particular soap is also extremely good and soothing for highly irritated skin.

It's also very good for those who love menthol and have sensitive skin and are sensitive to menthol in particular.
