Mystery Soap Grab Bags


(19 customer reviews)

Mystery soap bags are a great way to try an assortment of high-quality soaps at a bargain price. Inside each bag, you will find beautiful handmade soaps along with some rather deplorable looking but luxuriously cleansing castoffs.

  1. This is my first mystery bag order and I couldn’t be happier. Great value for great soaps. I got two (almost) full sized bars and two smaller cuts. A great way to try other products at a great price.

  2. I love ordering the Mystery Bag of soap. In a world of surprise—- this is a Most pleasant one! I always discover something new. So whether it is a few bars or many small ones, I always love my Mystery Bag!

  3. This is one of my favorite ways to learn about Alō offerings, and I find it hard to resist adding a Mystery Bag when they are available.

  4. So much joy to be found in one small bag—- you can’t go wrong!

  5. Such a cool concept. Don’t know what to get? Grab this. Don’t want to waste product that isn’t perfect? Grab this. Unsure if the product is worth the cost? GRAB THIS!

  6. I love love love the Mystery Bags. This time, in addition to other awesomeness, there was a sample of the Katherine Utility Soap, and I hope to get some full size bars before it is gone!
    My skin is challenging. My skin in a mask is *sighs* more so. This soap is perfect, for me, for hand-washing my masks. It doesn’t create any unpleasant reactions (a.k.a. claw my skin off). It rocks.

  7. Love the mystery bags .its great to try different products before getting it

  8. It was a gift.

  9. I wish i knew what soaps i got. They all smell nice.

    • Looks like you got end cuts of Peppy, Pure, and Charcoal tea tree tooth suds!

  10. Great value for the mystery bag contents there was a 4oz soap and 4- 1-2 oz varieties .smell great and can try different varieties before getting a larger portion

Handmade Soap

The short answer is yes! When you use a bar of soap (or Tooth Suds) the oil attracting end of the soap molecule picks up the grease and oils on your skin. When you rinse, the water-attracting end of the soap molecule follows the water, rinsing the soap and any impurities down the drain when you wash it off (or spit it out). 

After washing or brushing your teeth, any bacterium that was present on either the soap or your hands/teeth is washed down the drain.

Here’s more information about why soap isn’t dirty and perfectly hygienic and sanitary.

Soap ages, like a fine wine, but we recommend that you use your soap within one year of purchase. When a bar of our soap ages:

  • the aroma from essential oils will fade (after about 3-months)
  • the plant-based colors may fade (some within 6-months, other after a few years)
  • the lather will become creamier and thicker
  • the soap will become milder

The scent and color changes on our sample bars will be more noticeable and occur sooner than the full sized bars. This is due to an increased percentage of the surface area being exposed to air.

My favorite bar of soap is the first bar I ever made. My daughters and I spent months researching and collecting tools and materials with my husband. Our first soap then took us a full day to mix by hand. I’ll cherish those memories for the rest of my life. I still have a bar from that first batch and I use is once a year on my daughter’s birthday.

Short Answer: It depends on how often it’s used, and if it’s kept dry between uses.

When used at the sink for handwashing, a bar of our handmade soap can last for around 6 weeks or more. This assumes that the bar will be placed on a soap dish that allows the water to drain away from the soap, giving the soap a chance to dry out between uses. You can read more on extending the life of your soap here.

When used in the shower, a bar of soap will typically last around 4 weeks. This assumes that the bar is exposed to water longer than at the sink, and then multiple people are using the same bar to wash head to toe.

  • A bar of Tooth Suds typically lasts for 3 months!
  • A Shampoo Bar typically lasts 2-6 months (depending on how many times you wash your hair, and how long your hair is).

Compared to commercial “soaps”, natural soaps are normally softer as they retain their natural glycerin (commercial soap production removes the glycerine to sell as a separate product). Our soaps are also free from artificial hardening chemicals, synthetic waxes, or free alkali.

No, there is no lye in our soap. However, all true soap is made through the saponification of oils with lye—either sodium hydroxide or potassium hydroxide. Once saponified none of the lye remains, and the oils are turned into soap. You can read more how soap is made, cured, and cared for in these articles:

Alō products are made in a private kitchen, with clean and sterile equipment and quality ingredients. In fact, many of the ingredients are food grade…but please don’t eat your soap or body butter!

Natural does not always mean safe, and we encourage you to educate yourself on the power of natural ingredients. If you are allergic to any ingredient in a product, you should not use that product.
