Wett Giggles

Looking for something fun and useful for bath time? Try Wett Giggles Soap and nail brushes and choose from their adorable characters! You can try Beatrice the Cow in blackberry scent, Hamlet the Frog in watermelon scent, or Ophelia the Duck in lemon scent, just to name a few. Each bar is made one at a time with essential oils and shea butter.

I passed around a few of the samples I was given and the kids loved them. One friend’s daughter kept asking, “Mom, when do we get to the brush?!” They smell great and are a good size for little hands.
