One Good-Smelling Guy
My husband swore by a certain name-brand soap (white bar, chalky – do I need to say more?). Then I put a bar of SeaLuxe’s Carpe Diem in the shower cubby because I learned long ago, sometimes the path of least resistance is to let partners figure things out on their own rather than state the obvious. Fast forward to two days later, when we were driving to a restaurant.
“Oh, by the way,” the husband said. “That new soap is awesome. It smells great and I didn’t have to pile on moisturizer after I showered!”
(Note: He uses hand cream as a body moisturizer but that’s a story for another day).
“Great,” I said, nonchalantly. “It’s SeaLuxe soap. It’s the brand I use. All the time.”
He nodded, and asked me to buy more of Carpe Diem (he loves the shea butter and loofa combination). Inwardly, I fist-pumped. Not just because I want my husband to smell nice, it’s because he has the attitude of, “if it’s bad for you, they wouldn’t sell it.”
So not true!
Commercial soaps can include the following harmful ingredients:
- Parabens (chemical preservatives);
- Synthetic perfume (linked to allergies and hormonal issues. Can aggravate existing skin issues such as rosacea and acne);
- Petrochemicals (little is known about the long-term effects of petroleum chemicals on our health);
- Phthalates (a word for an ingredient used to produce plastic. Known to cause cancer);
- And artificial colouring (artificial dyes are known to cause illnesses).
SeaLuxe is all about natural ingredients such as healthy oils (great for moisturizing!), essential oils (harm-free and heavenly scent) and nature’s ingredients (organic and biodegradable ingredients that are harvested or sourced in an environmentally-friendly way). We’re passionate about providing luxury skincare products at an affordable price because we want anybody to have the choice of being able to refresh their skin, not pollute it with chemicals!

Did you know there’s a difference between hydrating and moisturizing? Don’t fret if you don’t – both words are often used interchangeably!
The first time I’d ever really heard of protein shakes was a conversation I’d overheard in high school. Two fellows – one of whom was wearing those Popeye patterned baggy track pants favoured by weight lifters in the late 1980s...
Self-care is a bit of a buzzword these days. Based on the idea of consciously looking after one’s own needs – something we all strive to do when and if we can – it’s an expression that became popular last year...

If you haven’t heard of dry skin brushing, we here at SeaLuxe headquarters are here to tell you it’s great! It’s as simple as it sounds – before you have a shower, stand in the stall or tub and run a high-quality dry brush over your skin for about five minutes.
One of the best things about living in modern times is all the choices of convenience we have. Even with a cleansing bar – we can decide what we want based on our skin type and how we want to smell.
