Soap Swap – The Soap Sister

I was so excited to receive my soap-swap soaps the other day from The Soap Sister of Heirloom Soapworks! http://thesoapsister.blogspot.com/ We have been blogging back and for a few months now and share similar soaping philosophies regarding what is important in a soap... so we decided on the exchange. I thought she was sending me 2 soaps... She sent 5!! Wow.


Love the packaging. Huge size bars – luxuriously thick and heavy! Personalized with the Heirloom Soapworks stamp...

The first one I absolutely tore into... the tea tree-eucalyptus facial soap. The smell is wonderfully fresh and cools me off just smelling it, which is fabulous in the depths of Southern Spain summer. Lovely natural white. Very very smooth. Super lather, which starts out with big bubbles then settles creamier.


But best of all, it is a fabulous facial soap for my difficult combination skin in the sweaty heat of the summer. I have been using it a few times a day as it SERIOUSLY cools me down and it leaves my face feeling fresh, clean and soft. I have to confess with the photo... that I used the soap a few times before snapping a naked soap picture... so you can’t see the beautiful Heirloom stamp that well, but you will when I try out the next one!


Thank you for this opportunity Becky!

They sounds great and I like the way they are wrapped. I too think nice sized bars are great.

There's nothing better than a great bar of soap! The packaging looks so beautiful too. It seems the wonderful experience started from the moment you laid your eyes on them!

Hi Jen! Thanks so much for the kind comments -I'm really glad that you like the soap!

I'm still lovin' your Cinnamon Oatmeal Scrub bar! I will write soon about the others. I have to compliment you on how nice and hard your soaps are! Mine take 6 months to get that firm! :]

Thanks again for swapping! ~Becky

Cool packaging! I like nice big bars too:) and isn't great when we can wash our face with our soaps bars instead of paying heaps for special cleaners? I always wash my face with my soaps, except when I'm wearing makeup, I use a cleanser first then. They sound lovely!
