Body

Luxurious. Delicious. Gentle. Moisturizing. High-performing. These are just a few of the words I would use to describe the Flynn&King soaps. Upon first opening the package, you are immediately welcomed by a heavenly aroma. You can smell how fresh the ingredients are. Then, just when you think it can't get any better, it does. Add water, lather, and indulge in the moment. Each of the soaps are gentle and designed to cleanse without over stripping your skin of it's natural oils. There's a soap for everyone so get ready to meet your match!
