Take Me Away - Review of Knight in Shining Armor ismell Soap From iVi Scents


Knigh in Shining Armor iSmell Soap


bell chain_4a3fe0b703e13 Waiting for your knight in shining armor to rescue you from the perils of daily life? I suppose every girl wishes that at some point. When the demands of life get to be too much, we just want to get away from it all. A handsome man to complete the deal isn’t bad either.  Well, this soap can’t whisk you away on a white horse to a palace where your prince will wait on you hand and foot, but it can lift your mood with it’s sweet scent and luxurious lather. 

The Knight in Shining Armor iSmell Soap from iVi Scents is veggie based bar soap that’s full of a sweet, fresh scent and no toxic scuzzies like other soaps. All ingredients are either naturally derived or safe synthetics. Because some scents aren’t found in nature (such as their Birthday Cake iSmell Soap) iVi Scents uses phthalate-free cosmetic grade fragrance oils that are specifically made for bath and body products.

Knight in Shining Armor is made of: 

Ingredients: Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Elaeis Guineesis (Palm) Oil, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Glycerine, Purified Water, Sodium Hydroxide, Sorbitol, Sorbitan Oleate, Glycine Soja (Soy Bean) Protein, Fragrance, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil.  MAY CONTAIN: Titanium Dioxide, FD&C Blue 1, Yellow 5, Red 30.

Purple = Naturally Derived Ingredient | Black = Safe Synthetic Ingredient


orange-with-a-berry--thumb4548484 Scent: A very light citrus scent  with hints of strawberry, possibly raspberry, too. I smell the berries more than the citrus. The great thing is that it smells like real fruit! I hate how some fruit products can smell fake.  It’s very sweet and almost candy-like. The scent is not over-bearing and fades shortly after my showers.

I will admit that I would’ve liked Knight in Shining Armor to smell like a man. Upon seeing the title, I assumed it would be a nice woodsy men’s cologne until I saw the scent description. Call me weird, but I don’t mind smelling like a man. My hubby used to be in the Navy, so when he was away, I’d use his shampoo so I’d smell like him every night. Now, that he’s out, I still enjoy masculine scents. Oil of Olay has a body wash that’s called Total Effects 7-in1 Advanced Anti-Aging and it has a slight masculine scent to it. Even though I love the scent of Knight in Shining Armor, I think maybe it should get a new name like “The Candyman” or “Sweetie Pie” or something candy/sweet related, and a more masculine scent to be assigned to it’s current name.

iviscents lather Lather: Oh..my..gosh! The lather with this soap is insane!  It’s so thick and luxurious that I can write messages with my finger when my tummy is lathered up!

I had to write it upside-down, ok? That’s why the letters look kinda funky.  

Skin: This is definitely a nice, moisturizing soap. If you’re one of the girls that uses soap to shave her legs instead of cream or gel (I know I can’t be the only one), then this is a great soap to do it with.

Packaging: Mine came in zebra print tissue paper, but iVi Scents is redesigning their packaging. Look for the iSmell Soap to start coming in zebra print boxes!

Customer Service: Great! If you have any questions, you’ll get a response back in a day or less!

Shipping: Very fast. Knight in Shining Armor was a surprise iSmell Soap included with my Mother’s Day iSmell Soap purchase. Of every order I’ve had with iVi Scents, most come within 3-4 days. Super-fast!

Overall, I’m very happy with my purchases from iVi Scents. Even though I would have like Knight in Shining Armor to smell manly, the scent is very true to the description on the site. It lathers better than any soap I’ve ever had, is free of anything that can harm my body, and leaves my skin sweetly-scented and soft. I highly recommend iVi Scents
