When it's cold, dark, and dry, the Winter Holidays puts in the yearning for pampering and soothing chapped skin with warm scents and nourishing oils.

Plus, you're camping out on an host's couch or bedroom because you're saving up to splurge for gifts and outings.

Be a thoughtful guest and give them soap...yes, you heard right "soap,"...body slathers, 50/50 Body Balms, inLIGHTin! Shea Butter Massage Candles, facial serums, and perfumes from Soaptopia,

This scribe discovered a silver sample of Soaptopia soap at an industry event; and that silver of Soaptopia soap lasted a good two weeks.  Imagine how long a regular-sized bar of Soaptopia soap will last.

Built and decorated like an Art Nouveau European bakery, Soaptopia is a fancy soaptopia bakery where soaps and body care concoctions are whipped up in the back kitchen.  

Instead of calorie-laden pastries, you have indulgent, sweet soaps and body care to sweeten up your senses and lips, not your hips.
You can visit the main Soaptopia Boutique at 12228 1/2 Venice Blvd., Mar Vista, CA  90066, go around the back and watch the ladies in action, measure, pour, blend, and whip the soaps.  Soaptopia is very transparent about who they are and what they are, real people using real ingredients by hand.

Instead of candy or fudge, it's blocks of soap that will be cut into bars of soap that will last a good long time.

While you're buying fancy stuff for the adults, bring the kids in for an educational treat so they'll know what goes into making soaps.  They'll be wowed.

Soaptopia, a bathing wonderland in Mar Vista.
