There is a tradition at Sabon in SoHo that the first time a new customer walks into the store, they must wash their hands. That’s right. They’ll greet customers at the door with smiles on their faces and then escort them right over to the sink. Once they’ve got them, that’s when they rub it in — all of their luscious hand soaps, silky lotions and smooth body oils.
At least, that’s what happened to me yesterday. I wandered in to the store to get a gift for my friend’s birthday not really knowing what to expect and came out with a great body scrub, perfect for dry winter skin.
Sabon’s mission is to provide the public with a wide range of exceptional bath and body products made with natural herbs and botanicals and packaged to appeal to the senses. The products are known for their relaxing aromas and magic healing abilities, especially for people with eczema like me.
The staff, who was helpful every step of the way, always offered to explain the difference between their scrubs, oils, creams and lotions and suggested a targeted range of products that catered specifically to my lifestyle.
Sabon was all about making me feel comfortable, giving my mind and body the attention it needs, so stop by today to get your free hand wash. You may end up buying a great product on the way out.
Sabon is located at 93 Spring St., 212.925.0742.
