Months ago I ordered whipped soap from Pink Parchment Soaps because I just have a thing about whipped soaps. They look cool and feel cool. Maybe because they kind of look like fudge or cake with that dough-like whippy whipped texture. Honestly, I think all this soap love I have is completely visual and stems way back to all things sugar. I mean, I keep thinking it MUST be much deeper than that, but really, it always seems to go back to the cake the fudge, the cupcakes, and chocolate, the pie, creamy custard, that crazy tasty I-can't-live-without-that-confection-for-one-more-second-give-it-to-me feeling you know what I mean?
So I got this beauty in the mail and was thrilled:
Funny how life became busy. It got put on my shelf and using it was put on hold for too many months until now. I have to say it was well worth the wait because I love this soap. The scent is pink grapefruit, but a sweeter pink grapefruit than a tart pink grapefruit and the soap looked exactly like this photograph. The interesting thing about it was that is was denser than other whipped soaps I've tried, so I am assuming it was not whipped as long (?). I like this very much because it isn't disappearing as fast AND it's not breaking apart in my hands like a cakey mudpie as the others had (no names will be mentioned a-hem). This bar has major bubbles and excellent shaving slip for those who use soap for shaving. I will use ole whippy 'til the nubby nub slips down the drain. And y'know, I don't feel that way about THAT many soaps. Usually I use the soaps about halfway and then retire them, go on to the next for review.
This one I'll use up.
Now, I do wish the scent had a sharper, more tart grapefruit scent, but that's me. I am a hardcore "real citrus scent" gal. I can cut a lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit and just sniff the real fruit to my nose for minutes on end.
I love it THAT much.
