Dang! Dirtybird Energy - what spring break needs!

Hi ya Gorgeous!

Whoa! So much going on this month - it's March and that means March Madness, St. Patrick's Day, spring break, and the month ends with Passover and Easter!  Holy smokes that's a lot of celebrating!

So, my son's school does not do a spring break and it's a bit of a buzz kill. We like to travel and take wee trips to visit family and friends and this whole 'no spring break" stinks!  The trade off is he only goes to school 4 days a week. So there's that.

Now, I just received some samples from Dirtybird Energy, and these soaps are amazing. I'm so glad I got a chance to experience this brand. It's one of my favorite things about doing Makeup University - I get to meet new products that in normal every day makeup work, I may not meet!  My samples came as a 4 pack with one of each scent and formulation that Dirtybird Energy makes.

This soap is so big. It fits my whole hand. Speaking of whole - this soap is for the whole family but the size is definitely man sized!

The bar is a generous 5.5 ounce size (156 g) and retails on the website for $5.99 each or a multi 4 pack sells for $23.50.

I've already tested the Original formulation and like the lather, rinse and clean but not dry feeling on my skin. My son used the bar and likes the chicken foot imprint as well as the "zingy" feel of the soap formulation.

The black plastic case the soap comes in, is reusable, recyclable and the soap is made in the USA.
So this soap is ready to travel on spring break trips, or be used in the locker room during March Madness games and when the soap is all gone, you can store some LEGO in the black tub.

So why the caffeine and how does it make Dirtybird special?  More on that in a paste of info from their website - on me - I did not notice a big difference. But - I'm exhausted from a super hard hike yesterday, I took a benadryl for a weird itchy scalp thing I have going on, and normally, I mainline espresso.  I don't fault the soap for not making me zippy because there was a lot stacked against it.

Final thoughts from me before I paste in the brand info: I really really like these soaps. I'm a soap fan to begin with, so this product had to really impress me to actually get me to say that I like it and I would buy it. Yup. They can take my money.

I think these are perfect gifts- especially for Mother's day - 'cause Moms are tired. Perfect for graduation day because those kids be needing a boost after the graduation celebrations and because I love hand made, USA, good stuff for the body, and I think Dirtybird Energy is it.

Also, if you turn the black tub over and read the ingredients - there's some humor hidden in there and I think that attention to detail means from the start of the soap making process to the finish, there is attention to what matters in this product. Buy some for you and buy some to give - you won't be disappointed.

Now for some brand info:

Why Caffeine?  When caffeine is applied to your soap it has antioxidant properties that is great for your skin and when absorbed it ENERGIZES your skin and body.  The amount of absorption varies from person to person and shower to shower.  The DIRTYBIRD ENERGY bar of soap is a great way to ENERGIZE before your first cup of coffee.
THE CONTAINER:  The soap isn't the only thing that's special. DIRTYBIRD ENERGY soap comes packaged in our patented reusable container, that snaps shut and allows you to take your soap anywhere; the gym, camping, vacation, anywhere.
