Upcoming Soap Reviews

Soap Reviews, you say?? It's been awhile, I know... But, don't forget, I started this blog in August 2007 ( I know, can you believe it?) and it started as a soap reviewing and featuring blog. The original intention of this blog was to create an awareness of handmade soap, its beauty and the amazing soapmakers who make them from all around the world. I felt as if handmade soap had been so under served and so underused. I still plan on converting the world, one person at a time, but Costco exists and even though my family accepts my soap for free, I bet secretly, they buy the sale soap when it's 10 for $3.00. It's ingrained in their head and they don't want to use my soap to quickly, really, because they are taking from me, or it's too pretty.... my mother likes using one in every room because it freshens the air and people comment on how good the bathrooms smell. "Hmm, why don't you USE it, mom? I'll give you more!" Mom says,"It's so pretty honey, I really enjoy looking at it and smelling it whenever I want."

I have a few soaps that have arrived that will be making it to the screen. My camera hasn't yet photographed them because of technical difficulties that will be resolved later today, but here are the soaps that their makers took from their hometowns:

Cream Bee
by Celine Blacow of SOAPERSTAR
Update: Sorry to make you drool over a soap I don't have. :(

I made a mistake. I have Butter Bee Silk:

Butterbee Silk



They both sound heavenly. I will leave you with some words from their websites....

Butterbee Silk:
fresh whole Buttermilk, deep amber Turkish Honey and pure Tussah scent.
Voluptus: Made with two amazing vanillas and coconut milk... {drool}

I'll be back after I eat the soap.

I'm looking forward to the reviews. I too have seen both of these soaps. The Cream Bee one sounds absolutely divine.

I’ve been following Soaperstar for some time now and this cream bee soap is my favourite, i literally want to eat it, it looks divine, creamy and rich, and the ingredients are sooooo moorish!!!!

I know how you feel I almost want to die when friends/ family/ certain customers tell me I just put it in the bathroom it makes it smell nice, or I just like looking at it. Nooooooo use it people you'll love it! There will be more there's always more!

Tierra Verde Handmade Soap said...

So glad to see you are reviewing again. Yeah!

These look wonderful!

My mum is the same, she likes to 'save' my soaps to be used occasionally, and uses supermarket soap the rest of the time. My dad hates the cheap stuff ... he always dobs on her by letting me know when that stuff is in the shower, which of course is blasphemy when there is a soapmaker in the family!

I'm certainly looking forward to your reviews (especially the one of Soapstars "Butter Bee Silk" ). Afterall, they were what inspired me to do mine :)
