Makes Lush look like a fast-food place

This is the second time we tried going there, and lucky for us, they were opened. The good: Lots of choices with great smells. Lots of variants of products (soaps, laundry soap, bath bombs, creams, etc.) Owner took time to explain to us, in English, the process of the soaps. Lots of space in the shop. Prices are reasonable for these kind of products. Promotion of « Spend this much and get this many soaps » actually worth it. Samples of soaps given in our bags. Huge parking lot. The bad: The smell of the place can be overwhelming for people who are smell sensitive. Prices can look expensive for some. Place can get busy, very quick (we were by ourselves in the shop, but as we left, three cars pulled back-to-back in parking lot). Can be missed if you drive at a quick speed on the road going to the abbey. Covid restrictions: Masks obligatory. Hand sanitizer at entrance. Cannot say anything about social distancing as we were by ourselves, but owner made an effort to stay distanced from us. Plexi glass at cash. Thee we experience was great and we started using the products last night (bath salt that, surprise, had a small bottle of essential oil in it). We will definitely go back as we often go to Magog.

Do not miss this place!

For the many times that I've visited the area, I never had a chance to visit Savon des Cantons until last week. We stopped in on a Sunday afternoon and were pleasantly surprised at the vast selection of soaps and other bath accessories. We purchased about 10 bars of the olive oil soaps and each one with a different fragrance. Devine! Reading a previous review, I didn't realize that they have olive oils and vinegars, so next time I'm am there, I will have to check that out! The owner is friendly and knowledgeable and I will indeed return! Prices are reasonable for these delicious soaps! Don't miss visiting!

Stopped here on the way to the Abbey. The place smells wonderful when you walk in and there is a large display of various soaps. But, the soap is rather expensive and we looked around and left.

Smells good & Tastes great!

Was at a cottage for a week in Magog, and took the time to visit Les savons des cantons on a rainy day. Their balsamic vinegars et olive oils is what attracted me and i am truly enjoying the ones i purchase with my salads etc... but the soaps section was equally inviting and i did end up purchasing some as it smells so good (i have not try these products yet). The staff is quite knowledgeable and very social!
