Is there anything more brutal than the alarm clock cutting through your foggy, satisfied sleep and screaming you awake? No. The only thing that could repair the damage is realizing (deciding?) you don’t have to wake up and going back to sleep. Aside from that, the next best thing would be to start your morning routine with something restorative and pleasant.
Such is this Morning Shift bar of soap. It smells of eucalyptus, peppermint and rosemary — three bracing, bright scents that make waking up more tolerable. The jojoba oil and shea butter will take good care of your skin and there are no parabens or synthetic stuff to gunk up your AM ablutions. Think of the bar as a small consolation prize waiting for you in the shower, a reward for once again managing to not punch your alarm clock. – $17
