In the beauty industry products generally lure the buyer because of two factors: packaging or quality products. But when both are together, then there is a product you keep buying time and again. The Soap and Paper Factory has it both. This bath line has the most wonderfully packaged items that get the job done. They throwback to the days when you wanted to display your lotions and potions on your vanity with their 1920s glamour. The Shea Butter Soap ($8) is expertly packaged in parchment, and then wrapped with a decorative label. The Bella scent is not overpowering, yet fresh. It is vegan, with no chemicals, and wonderful oils to enrich skin. The Shea Butter Hand Creams ($18) are in a retro tube with a different design designating the scent. These creams are rich. They go on slippery, but the cream gets rapidly absorbed into the skin. Normally, that greasy feeling subsists but the oils actually get to working. The line has perfumes where the boxes look like a night sky. Evoke that night sky with the candles ($28) that will fill the room with the light scents.
