Soaps & Bubbles – Strawberry Milkshake – Soap Review
Very recently, I was the lucky winner of a contest for 2 free soaps from a very generous, talented and creative Belgian Soap Maker at Soaps & Bubbles (http://www.soapsnbubbles.com/)! This week I received them in the mail - Strawberry Milkshake & Lime Twist.
I just love the logo – classic, classy and original. I will begin with Strawberry Milkshake as it was the first I unwrapped and was addicted to the sweet fruity scent right away! I love the colour and the uniqueness of poppy seeds with Strawberry! I have seen poppy seeds with lemon or peppermint, but Strawberry Poppyseed? Creative! Just the right amount of poppyseeds as well - not an overdose. I began with washing my hands and from the first moment this soap hit water, I have loved it. My daughter as well. Big, bubbly suds froth-up almost immediately, even before the water gets really warm (makes me wonder why the delay on the suds in some of my soaps?). Then the suds get smaller, creamier and richer and so many!! Suds! Suds! Suds! Next I did the shower test and again loved it! I had never tried soap with the rippled cut before and I really like the feel on my body, almost adding to the exfoliating feel from the poppyseeds. Third test was on my face. I usually have a hard time finding a soap that works well on my face because I have combination skin. Either soap gives me pimples on my forehead or it really dries out the areas around my nose. Strawberry Milkshake soap has left my face feeling soft and clean, even after a dry-nose pollen-filled sneezy day. Wow! It has also stayed really hard after using it several times. So, in summary – a fabulous all-around mildly-exfoliating hand, shower and facial soap. Questions for Soaps & Bubbles – Can you give any tips on how to get such a beautiful lather & how to get the bar to stay so hard?
