Today I Am Using...

So I have this thing where I post every so often what stuff I use or eat or wear, and I thought this could be a good way to get some soap makers a bit of exposure, as well, because I always have 3 or 4 soaps going at once in the shower with me.

This morning, in the shower, I used Metropolis Soap's "The Great Citrus Caper" which I have been quite enjoying for weeks. This sucker doesn't shrink very willingly, either! At first I thought the essential oil blend was a little too potent, but I'm feeling it. Ginger and Lemongrass are spicy and fresh and it really is a delightful combination and I have become accustomed to it, and I wouldn't change a thing now. So there. The ginger is dominant and the design of the bar is bright and cheery. This is a morning bar, for sure. Wakey Wakey!


Also, today I'm using Product Body's Eucalyptus Tea Tree Facial Soap. Never had a fondness for tea tree essential oil, but I've been using this bar as my facial soap daily now for 2 weeks or so, and my face just feels better. I am getting used to the scent because I know I'm doing my skin a favor. My skin looks healthier and happy.

(Licking my lips) I used Platypus Dreams' "Shea Body Butter, in Vovacia" Oh my yum. This is a thick and frosting-like cream. Thick and moisturizing. I love it! I want to check out her other scents. This one is a tad on the sweet side for me, but I can't stop from using it, because what is better than dipping your fingers in icing?

Of course, I am using The Morbid The Merrier's "Harlot Jasmine Tea", as I use it just about every day (Love it. Harlot is the best lip balm on the planet and I am a nut for tea smells).

I am also using Neosporin for the raw soap burns on my face. They itch more than they hurt now. Dumbness on my part. Wiping away my hair out of my face with raw soap on my gloves. Not the sharpest knife in the drawer, huh?

So that is it for today. More on another day. Ciao!

I am not happy that you burned your face. I am happy that experienced soapers make mistakes. I do the dumbest things with my soap sometimes and feel like such a newbie. Because I am

I am glad you like the Body Butter, it's nice, thick and does the treat on my feet when I remember to pamper them.
