Soap for Hope

Happy December.

Just because October and November are officially over doesn't mean you can't still care about the cause.

Method, the people against dirty, launched two limited edition soaps aimed at raising awareness (and some research funding) for breast and prostate cancers.

They sent us a sample of the botanical garden scent, which comes in a mustache-bedecked bottle and (despite the name) actually smells mildly masculine. In a good way.

There's also the mimosa sun scent.

Both 12-ounce bottles have a suggested retail price of $3.99 and will be available nationwide through March.

And apparently, these two "designed for good" products are only the most recent installment in Method's series meant to raise awareness of various issues. Previous releases have focused on the ethical treatment of animals - Method products are 100-percent vegan and cruelty-free - the importance of being non-toxic, as well as recycling.

While I've loved Method as a company for years, it's peeving that the brand frequently discontinues products you've already fallen in love with. (Le Scrub soft abrasive bathroom cleaner and the "cut grass" air fragrance capsules, I can't find comparable replacements.)

So if you like these limited-edition soaps, stock up now. At least in this case Method was upfront about the fact they won't be around forever.
