Not your ordinary soap

LONDON - Inventors have created a soap infused with caffeine which helps users wake up in the morning.

The soap, called Shower Shock, supplies the caffeine equivalent of two cups of coffee per wash, with the stimulant absorbed naturally through the skin, manufacturers say.

“Tired of waking up and having to wait for your morning java to brew? Are you one of those groggy early morning types that just needs the extra kick?” ask the makers, thinkgeek.com.

Scented with peppermint oil, each bar is designed to provide a stimulant boost within five minutes for a clean buzz.

I don't know about you, but I'm pretty sure I'd be quite terrified to use this product. The thought of caffeine just absorbing in your skin like that... They might as well just come up with a "Power Caf Pack" that would strap on underneath your clothing and proceed to intravenously feed caffeine to every crevice of your body.

I just don't need caffeine that badly.

Would you try it?

I do love caffine but I don't think i would ever try this. It just sounds too weird!!! Besides, the whole reason I like caffine is b/c I like the taste of coffee or pop....why would I want to not drink them?

On the other hand....it could save some calories!

Hmmm....I might try it, especially after one of those very long nights when the baby won't sleep and the preschooler keeps visiting our room....

...yeah, I might do it.
