Introducing Before the Raid - A Natural and Luxurious Experience

Are you looking for a soap that not only cleanses your skin but also provides a luxurious and rejuvenating experience? If yes, then Before the Raid is the perfect choice for you. Made with natural ingredients, this soap is gentle on your skin and provides a gender-neutral scent that will leave you feeling refreshed and revitalized.

The luxurious fragrance of Before the Raid comes from a blend of saffron, cedar, and violet essential oils and fragrance oils. The combination of these three oils provides a warm, woodsy, and floral aroma that is both sophisticated and gender-neutral. The saffron oil provides a warm and spicy aroma, while the cedar oil adds a woodsy and grounding touch. The violet oil provides a floral and fresh aroma, making the fragrance a perfect balance of warmth, depth, and freshness.

The Before the Raid soap is orange brown and gold in color, giving it a warm and earthy appearance. It is handmade in small batches, ensuring the quality of each bar. The soap is made using the cold process method, which means that it is handcrafted using natural ingredients and retains each of their beneficial properties. The cold process method also ensures that the soap cures slowly, making it more gentle and long-lasting.

One of the key ingredients in Before the Raid is ground oatmeal. Oatmeal is a natural exfoliant that is gentle on the skin, making it an excellent choice for those with sensitive skin. The oatmeal in the soap will help to gently remove dead skin cells, leaving your skin feeling soft and smooth. 

Additionally, the soap is free from harmful chemicals such as parabens and sulfates, making it a safe choice for those with sensitive skin.

In conclusion, Before the Raid is the perfect choice for those who want a soap that not only cleanses their skin but also provides a luxurious experience.

This is my favorite scent! I can't get enough of it... I always get compliments when someone uses my restroom because it smells so good...they ask what kind of air freshener I use... they're blown away when I tell them none, it my soap that smell so good.

So good

Before the raid smells fantastic, a highly suggest

Soap is still great, but new fragrance isn't for me.

Before The Raid has been one of my favorite scents by BoV for years, as it's more subtle than some of the other scents and smells amazing on me. This new bar has Black Violet added to the original scent and I don't love it. The scent is so different that I don't want to use it, so I'll probably let one of my other family members use it.
The soap itself still works really well, and lasts a really long time, as I've come to expect from this company. So that's why it still gets 4 stars, as I know it will still be a great bar of soap, even if I don't enjoy the way it smells like I'd hoped.
If Deb and the staff bring back the normal Before The Raid I'll definitely buy it, but I won't be getting this version again.
