I bought some bars of Trisha's hand made soap, and used it for the first time yesterday. I was in the shower, and started to notice the brownish water puddling at my feet. Then, when I was out of the shower, I looked in the mirror and my skin was about 2 shades lighter!!!!!!!!! I can't believe all the years I've lived thinking that I was clean. Using Trisha's soap has shown me that I have never been really clean. And I thought that I was just tan all year. I am never switching soaps again.
