I’m obsessed with anything hygiene-related: perfume, soaps, scrubs… anything that will leave me feeling clean, fresh, and smelling good… I’m on board! I normally buy the new goat’s milk soaps at Whole Foods that run three bars for $5.00, and have been known, on occasion, to “get a little crazy” at Lush.com!
I love making my own products, obviously, and even took a soap-making course to learn how to make cold-processed soaps! If I do say so myself, my soap turned out quite…..well, quite HORRIBLE to be honest! Lol, so I definitely understand and appreciate the intricacies of the soap-making process! So when I was contacted by a homemade beauty product company, I decided, what the heck, I’ll try some! (I just love a beautifully mixed brick of soap! Ahhh, the color! The texture!)
So from the DIY Hair Care Products website, I decided to try the Charcoal Facial & Body Bar and the Green Tea Gentle Facial & All Over Bar. I noticed the first ingredient in both bars was Coconut Oil and knew they would produce some really nice lather!
I was really excited to try the Charcoal Facial & Body Bar because I love anything that involves clay minerals or ash for the body. As I expected, it gave an amazingly rich lather, which was awesome, but I found that because it lathered so much, it didn’t last for very long. It felt great, but I only wished it lasted longer.
I really loved the Green Tea Gentle Facial & All Over Bar! Again, it gave a really nice lather, but this one lasted a lot longer, and left my skin feeling nice and soft; Filipe loved it too! Once the bar begins to breakdown, the green tea particles offer a really nice exfoliating feature, which I thought was awesome! It felt like a mini massage every time I used it, and they lasted up until the very last piece of soap disintegrated.
I really enjoyed these soaps a lot! If they were sold at my local grocery store, I would probably be buying them every month, lol… the Green Tea Bar especially! It really did feel relaxing on my skin every time I showered. I didn’t use it on my face because I have super sensitive skin and didn’t want to risk it, but I give it an A+ for a body soap! They also sell hair care products and skin products, along with their bath items, so def check them out! I think the soap would make awesome items for a gift basket! …speaking of gift basket… I’ll be adding one of each bar to my upcoming giveaway as well!
