*This visit took place in March 2014.
One of the things that I love most about the Flower & Garden Festival and Food & Wine Festival at Epcot is a non-food booth – it’s the Rinse Bath & Body booth located in the World Showcase. Featured exclusively during these festivals, Rinse Bath & Body gives guests a chance to check out artisan soap and body products all produced in Georgia in small batches. The best part about them? They offer many gluten free and vegan offerings.
As someone who has sensitive skin, I am always wary of soap products. I react really easily to items that are heavily perfumed and filled with extra “junk.” It’s been that for as long as I can remember (I notoriously broke out into rashes as a kid – bathtime did not include Mr. Bubbles for me!). I decided to check out the soaps made by Rinse last year, after honestly avoiding the booth for a very long time.
And now, I’m a bit of a Rinse Bath & Body Soap addict (yes, they know me at the booth!). My favorite soap by far is the Bamboo Loofah Soap. It contains a saponified blend of Shea & Cocoa Butters, Olive, Refined Sweet Almond, High Oleic Sunflower, Coconut & Palm Kernel Oils along with Loofah & Fragrance Oils. And none of these make my skin itchy or irritated. In fact, my skin has never been smoother or more hydrated than with this soap.
Of course, there are tons of options that are gluten free and vegan throughout the booth – not just soap. From pucker sticks to body buffs, there is something that will entice you every time you visit.
One of the things I also love is that each of the festivals carry different types of items. That means you can find a variety of options that will rotate depending on the festival. Flower & Garden Festival is more floral based – lots of flower scents, lilac, violet, lavender.
Food & Wine Festival is much more food & wine based – cabernet, fig, cranberry.
Of course, you can always find some of your favorite staples (including the Bamboo Loofah Soap) featured at both festivals. Any items you’re missing? You can order online easily at Rinse Bath & Body’s website. And even better – head to the gift shop at the beginning of the World Showcase. They now carry many of Rinse’s products year-round!
I sure know I’ll be stopping by the Rinse Bath & Body booth a lot during the festival this year. I like to stock up on my favorite scents. And bonus – annual passholders and DVC members get an extra 10% off their purchase! Cha-ching!
I hope you’ll pop by the Rinse Bath & Body booth to check out their offerings. They are always willing to answer any questions that you might have – especially when it comes to sensitives and conditions that may make using products more difficult. Be sure to tell them that Sarah sent you!
