I use Ivory as a body and facial soap. I was first introduced to it when I was little, its what my mom used to use when I was little. I just thought it was your basic run of the mill soap. Then when I grew up and had my kids, they had eczema. I was really stressed out because their skin was dry and I really needed something for bathtime that was delicate. My mom suggested using Ivory and that, that was what her doctor suggested when I was a baby to get rid of my eczema. I was shocked, I had no idea I even had eczema as a baby. Sure enough using for a week I already saw a huge difference in the appearance of their skin. Some secret! I guess the moisturizers in Ivory are little miracle workers on my little miracle. I've been using it ever since.
I truly recommend using Ivory for skin conditions such as eczema. It really moisturizes and keeps the moisture in the skin without leaving your skin greasy, oily, or leaving a residue.
Some great facts about Ivory I found:
Ivory Bar Soap
Free of dyes and heavy perfumes, Ivory provides a simple, yet effective clean for the entire family (without breaking the bank!).
Ivory bar soap is 99.44% pure (it floats!). Beyond using it as a body cleanser, many of Ivory's loyal users – not to mention a few celebrities – swear by Ivory as their beauty secret. In fact, many consumers use Ivory bar soap as a facial cleanser. It provides healthier, smoother and more even-looking skin. Also, its versatility makes it an effective laundry soap (just chip soap flakes into the washer) as well as a spot stain remover on your clothes (including delicate items). Ivory bars can even be used for a fun soap carving project with the family!
When it comes to motherhood, Ivory (the clean & simple soap) knows that being a mom has become more complex than ever, and that moms are looking for ways to simplify their lives. According to a survey of 1,000+ moms conducted by Wakefield Research on Ivory’s behalf in October 2011, 80% of American moms think motherhood is more complicated today than it was 20 years ago, despite the thousands of items supposedly designed to “simplify” their lives. But, while they may be more stressed out and busier than ever, almost 90% of moms think they’re doing a better job balancing it all than their mothers did. Some other interesting stats:
· 30% of moms surveyed found the most complicated aspect of motherhood was finding more "me" time, 66% confessed to hiding in their bathroom for some alone time.
· 75% feel the pressure to make every outing, playdate, or experience a "teachable moment," which can create great pressure
· 70% of moms feel they don’t have everything together, despite others thinking that they do.
As a result of these findings, Ivory created a Facebook community where everyday moms can share tips with one another on ways to simplify life for themselves and their families.
Find your Ivory now at your nearest retailer, including stores such as Walmart and Target as well as any major grocery, dollar and drug store. A 10-pack of Ivory bar soap retails for around $4.49 (bath bar size).
I received this product complimentry for testing purposes from Influensters and Ivory as a participant in the VoxBox campaign.
