The Soap Opera has absolutely great products! I've bought stuff for my girlfriend from there on several occassions and she raves about the products! I would have to agree that it is much better than Bath and Body Works and so would my girlfriend! The prices are great too! It's downtown in this nice little shop. The staff are very friendly and helpful and they have almost anything you could ever want! It's true that you have to find parking and pay for it, but for college students it's a god-send. I would definitely recommend the Soap Opera.

I used to be a devote; to BBW....spending literally hundreds of dollars, and receivinig sub-standard service, there in a year. Then I entered nto an agreement with hubby that I would surrender my VS card to him and stay out of VS and BBW for a set amount of time. I did it and now that it is time to get the cards back....I'm not sure I want them anymore!

THE SOAP OPERA is a wonderful alternative, especially when you think about it. Not only can you choose the fragrance you want but the type of merchandise, the amount and even the approximate $ you want to spend achieving your goal!

The personnel were very pleasant and helpful here as well....a nice change from the indifference I have oftentimes felt at BBW. I mean, really, when you think about it we the consumer are writing these salesperson's paychecks each week...don't we deserve some sort of respect and kindness for our pains!?!

Though you do have to FIND and PAY for parking downtown when you shop THE SOAP OPERA., it really doesn't bother me...it is worth it in my eyes, the products are top notch and the atmosphere pleasant....what more could you want! 2 thumbs up from this busy MOM....give it a try...I think you'll agree!

PROS: ....lots of choices...nice people
CONS: ....have to go downtown

The Soap Opera has been around for more than 23 years that I am aware of. I love the wide selection of oils that you can mix together to create your own scent. I purchased pine oil here to keep the cat away from my plants and it worked. There are just an unbelievable amount of lotions and soaps to choose from. Great place to find a unique item and not the run of the mill.

PROS:
CONS: no parking
