Soaper duper beauty - the soap revival

Soap has long sat in the shadows of the frothier, snazzier pump bottles of hand and body wash, tarnished with a reputation for causing a dry, squeaky finish on the skin.

But there seems to be something of a resurgence for the humble soap, with its beautiful delicate scents and soft lather.
