May 2009's New Beauty Products
A library of luscious soaps, the quickest way to get polished, and more.
Did you know that Americans are reading more than they have in the past 26 years? Did you know that reading makes you beautiful? We can't prove that last assertion, but loving all things bookish, we were charmed by the Skinnyskinny Organic Soap Set ($48; SkinnySkinny.com
), a novel-looking box filled with a selection of organic soaps wrapped in actual book pages. The box is deliberately unlabeled (what a fresh idea!), so when the soaps are gone, you can slip it into your library to hide all manner of exotica.
