Ultimate Ugly Soap Contest

I challenge you.

It is time to dig deep, folks. I think every once in a while we all need to rid ourselves of ugly monkeys on our backs, failures, monsters that haunt us, the stuff that we wished we never stumbled on. So, for all you soapers, send me a photo of
the ugliest soap you have EVER made (if you dared to take a picture of it) and if you have never made soap, send me the photo of the ugliest thing you've ever made : could be a sweater, an invitation, a birthday cake, a painting, your baby, whatever.

I will choose the Ultimate Ugly Soap (U.U.S.) and that person will win one mocha espresso soap (4 ounces) one rose bubble slice (4 ounces),
2 citrus bubble bars (each weighing 3.5 ounces) and one of my short strawberry banana soaps (about 3-4 ounces). I will also feature your Super U.U.S. and your blog (if you have one). A little exposure, a little humility, a little humor. Now to offset the embarrassment, may I suggest you also send me a photo of your favorite and most beautiful creation so we can patch the tremendous eye sore ;).

So! Email both the Ugly and the Beautiful and you could be the winner: jo(at)productbody(dot)com.

Contest ends on Friday June 27th and the winner will be announced on Saturday morning.

Good luck!

My kiddos: The ugly and beautiful.

The first photo is of them on the other side of our glass slider doors blowing as hard as they could up against the glass to create the pressure to expand their cheeks. I am so proud.

LOL! Good thing we know your children are beautiful (and you have the second photo too to prove it), because that first photo of them is a riot in a scary sort of way!

No ugly soaps here yet, but this post reminded me to check Etsy....

OMG~ It that too darn funny!Visiting your blog (and now your hubby's) is better than TV any day.

As far as the contest~ I'll dig into my BIG basket of "wanna-be" soaps...:)

Oh oh! I have a very ugly soap!

This is not only ugly, but it's extremely caustic and would burn your bits if you tried to wash with it.

The brown liquid pockets in the photo are blobs of lye-heavy honey. The rest of the soap looked like bland cheese. YUCK!

And to offset the horror:

I got very luck with that batch!

Oh, I wish I had saved my old marshmallow soap! I was going for "Winter Wonderland," but the FO made my soap a deep shade of brown. It would have been nice if that's what I was going for, but I wanted snow. End result: Marshmallow scented dark brown soap with soap glitter. Really weird.

Oh, this won't be hard at all. Mine was so ugly (and bad) it didn't even make it into the mold. It was a giant blob of poop soap.

I throw the ugly soaps away before anyone ever knows they existed. I have ONE batch that isn't the worst I've ever made, but pretty ugly. Somehow I happened across them the other day and thought they need to be thrown away...but they smell so good, so work great as "hidden" air fresheners in jars, cups, etc around the house. I'll have to dig a few out and take photos for sure.

What a way to round out an entry! The kids must make you proud! Some of those soaps you shared look like real dessert.

um... can we send a pic of our soap in the shower. Mine gets pretty ugly but I can't throw a good bar away!

I have too many 'uglies' and not enough nice but am still trying.

Angie said...

Ooh, I have an ugly. I'm off to take pictures...
