Is that really $125 for a soap? Something you slather on for 20 seconds and then rinse off---will cost you $125?

I LOVE Self Mag. My fave mag up there with Elle and the old Jane. But how come sensitive skin types have to splurge?

(giggles at $125 for soap).....Ok....I subscribe to Self and have almost since its first issue. I wasn't willing to shell out $125, but on the site, you can get a sliver for $12. Call me a sucker for a gimmick....(can you see the sucker stamp from there?) It is just soap. I didn't really notice any difference in my skin. I also bought it for tween (12) daughter who has breakouts. Didn't work for her either. See, this is what happens when you send people free items and ask them to pick favorites. That was how this list was compiled after all.
