I have had the best experience in the shower lately. Tiggy of Future Primitive sent me a gift with some soap. I ordered something (and I can't remember what) on her website and she sent me bubble bars, soap and her Body Whip in Malt N' Milk, which I don't see listed anymore, but here is the photo on her website that makes her such a temptress.
just give me a spoon, ok?
It's nice and thick, creamy and soothing. I've always preferred the buttery, thick creams, more so than lotion. It just sinks down deep into the dryness of my hands and arms which are constantly beaten up by water, making soap and always washing washing. It makes me think that I need to reevaluate the products I make. :P Why am I not making the buttery ones? Hmm, more thought on that later. Back to Future Primitive!
7 Sins. The soap. It is a complex scent and one that makes me swoon when I sniff it. The blog describes it like this:
I'm not sure I smell the popcorn and the description is too cake-y and sweet for what it really smells like to me. I have smelled teeth-aching sweetness before and this is not it. It is much more laid back, tempting the sweetness and bringing a load of heaven up my nose, but it isn't coying, or overly sweet in the least. The chocolate pulls all of the scents together into a cadence of sorts and in short, a slice of heaven. Sinfully heavenly...Banana cake infused with Ginger, topped with Vanilla Frosting and drizzled with melted Dark Chocolate. Toasted Madagascan Vanilla bean with a dribble of Honey and finished with a scattering of Hot Buttered Popcorn.
Honestly, the soap is perfect. Bubbles, big and wide tapering off to tight bubbles that are cream-like that left my skin quenched. Clean, moisturized and quenched. Thank goodness. The design is lovely, too. But then, all of Tiggy's soaps are just so pretty to look at. Here are pictures of 7 Sins soap:
Sadly, I am reviewing this when there is no stock of them on the website, so you may have to wait, but I couldn't wait on my review because I had to share my experience. I have yet to try the bubble bars. Who has time to soak in a tub? I never feel that I have time for much these days, as you can see, I am rarely updating this blog, which I intend on doing more of soon. I need to spend more time pampering myself and keeping track of my soapie gifts.
A note about Tiggy: She is a true soaper. One that really has the passion and determination to create good products and anyone who has ever been in touch with her will tell you she is aces. She is funny, sweet and honest and above all, dedicated to her craft.
Give a shout to Tigger and tell her I sent you. Tell her I love her stuff - and her!
