Friday’s Fab Find: Beekman Soap

Beekman Soap

I love winter! I do. The freezing cold rain, long nights, coats, umbrellas. The one thing I hate about winter? Winter skin. My skin plus indoor heat means my skin gets so dry I scratch til I bleed. Then  discovered Beekman 1802 Seasonal soaps, now I scratch no more!

If the name Beekman sounds familair owners Josh Kilmer Purcell and husband Dr. Brent Ride won the 21 Season of CBS’s The Amazing Race and even had their own reality show “The Fabulous Beekman Boys for two season on Planet Green (reruns air on the Cooking Chanel). You can read all about their journey  becoming goat farmers in Josh’s hilarious memoir “The Bucolic Plague: How Two Manhattanites Became Gentlemen Farmers” and the odd truth that this entire endeavor was largely a result of the fact neither of them can read a map.

But truly their soap is AMAZING. Originally it was created as a Christmas gift for Martha Stewart (I’m not joking) is handmade,  only natural essential oils for fragrance (or you can request the unscented kind its Martha’s favorite). super moisturizing (hence saying goodbye to dry itchy winter skin) so pure it makes a great facial cleanser eliminating the need for two bars of soap in the shower. Frankly I recommend buying several bars especially this time of the year. They are inexpensive and so luxurious when someone stops by with a gift for you that you did buy one for (name a year when that doesn’t happen) you can pop some Beekman  soap into a gift bag and they will be stunned how thoughtful you are!”

    Best soap EVER!

  • Sophia Burke

    Cute packaging.

  • Tiki Marie

    Great packaging! Handmade soaps are great. They last a long time and have lots of natural goodies in them.

  • Kerizl

    Pure handmade soap is the best thing ever. I make my own, but I know that’s not feasible for many people, so you need to find the good stuff to buy, like this lovely Beekman soap. I can verify that high quality cold process soap, with the glycerine left in, makes an excellent facial cleanser, even for the most delicate skin. I give it to friends, and tell them they can use it on their face. The look skeptical, but always come back for more telling me the soap made their skin feel great, even their face!

    I’m itching like crazy this winter, too. May have to try this.

    What’s the price point on this stuff? IF you could include an idea of that in these reviews, that would be fabulous!

    • Aragon131

      Individual soaps range from $10 to $15 dollars but bear in mind these soaps are a hefty 8 oz. I personally slice them (they cut easily) into thirds and one bars will last well over a month if you keep it away from direct spray.

  • Marie Colton

    I’m always looking for unscented products as I’m allergic to fragrance products.
    Thanks so much for the heads up!
