Lavender Rose Gourmet Cake Slice
Sharon, of Platypus Dreams really outdid herself on this one. Look at that beauty! I am all about using pretty things, because the point of beauty is to indulge and partake in it. I hate it when I give someone candles or soap or a scrub and they just put it in a guest bathroom or powder room and never use it. Or never light the candles which end up being the catcher for dust particles.
Well, this one was hard for me. I wasn't sure how to start bathing with it so I removed the rosebuds which were set in to the cake slice ever so perfectly. Then I was left with the slice as large as my entire hand and tried rubbing the thick layer of lavender buds on me. I saw hundreds of buds go down my drain, so I immediately stopped the exfoliating test because I was scared to clog my drain...but it did feel great on my legs (my "ever so needy of exfoliation" legs). The scent was soft and floral, with a touch of cream. I loved this bar (um..slice), but wasn't sure how to use it. Maybe this one would have been better on display, because I miss the beauty it gave me everyday on my windowsill as I washed dishes. There isn't that much that gives me delight as I scrub pot and pans. Trust me.
Sharon, your soaps are absolutely magnificent and I believe that many readers will become inspired by your talent. Not only are your bars and slices stunning to look at, with colors so vibrant, but the soap is so well made, had copious foaming bubbles and left me feeling clean but not dried out in any way. It was a real joy testing every one of your soaps and I will continue using them until the very last nub dissolves.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
