I am moving again

Hi readers, I have checked my picture size. They are all quite small and I figure out my pic limit was hit because i post too many pic. Lol...

I'm not working now so not in a good financial state to pay for the extra pic Space on blogger. I think the best way to solve the problem is for me to move my blog.

This blog will still be around like my previous one. For more post please visit my new blog:

WickedScentuals

I have heard so much about Wicked Scentuals in Youtube that i must try her bubble bar. I bought 6 bubble bars and a whipped soap to try out. She has also generously throw in some soap samples for me to try. She has also throw in a shower loofah in my delivery. She is so generous ;)




Look at how bright n colourful her bubble bar are... they are all individually wrapped with bubble wrap. I'm so impressed with the way she ship her products, all my items came in perfect condition. (believe me, not all sellers take that effect)

I have used part of one of a bubble bar, it is much harder than the ones i bought from Lush. Therefore is not as easy to be used in the shower. But the fragrance is way much more intense. I love intense fragrance...



My soap samples.... i have used once bitten, the fragrance of this soap is no where as intense as the bubble bar i have used. Never the less, its a good piece of soap that lather very well.



Pretty pink shower loofah.... i did not used it with the whipped soap.. lol.. i must mentioned that her whipped soap which i got in fragrance Pink Thang smell gorgeous, its a sweet smell. The whipped soap does not lather very well but was intensively fragranced, The fragrance lasted quite long after shower.
I mixed it with another whipped soap that lather really well but has not much fragrance, the 2 complement each other really well ;)

More Davis Main soap from ETSY!!!

I really like the fragrance of  Adria's soap. Her soap is good but its her fragrance that keep me buying from her. I might have all gotten all available fragrance she has in her store...LOL...

Homemade banana mask

I have being doing a lot of DIY body and face things at home lately. It help to make my monotone skincare routine a bit more interesting and make showering a daily event that i look forward to now. lol

I'm posting this to share with u all a recent homemade mask I have being using regularly lately. Just a small note, I have oily combination skin.

The Banana mask

1/3 of a ripe bananas
1tsp of running honey
1tsp of freshly squeeze lemon juice

Smash the banana well, add in the honey, mix a bit follow by the lemon juice. Mix well and apply on your face. Wash off after 15min and you will feel the different.

P.s. the ratio of the components is just a rough guide, u can change it according to your own preference and skin type.

Radical work from etsy

Soap from radical work are all priced at $1USD. It's really cheap and shipping are at  $2each.

Their soaps are pretty but they all has this burnt smell which i really do not like!!!!

Future primitives soap

This is a UK base company, the owner is Tiggy. This is her web site:
http://futureprimitivesoap.bigcartel.com/


Her soap typically cost £4.95 per bar, a bit to the expensive side I must say. But u are paying for the quality.

The soap is so beautiful

I bought the spring bundle @ £13.85,
Save £1 off the regular price (if products were bought separately).

It consist of 3 Spring Release soaps:

'Black Honey' - Freshly potted British Hedgerow Honey, Warm Spices, Dry Leaves, Lemons & Mandarins.

'The Shire' - A host of spring blossoms from Worcestershire. Closed lavender buds waiting to hatch, Geranium leaves tossed in Gardenia absolute and a fistful of star-shaped Ylang Ylang flowers.

'Green Room' - Smashed Rosemary ; Spearmint leaf mingles with the uplifting scent of ripe Mandarins and vintage surfboard wood.

The description of the soap is obtained from Tiggy website.

I have unwrapped black honey, it look exactly like the picture on the web. It's so pretty.

I think her soap is really good,  soap lather well and moisturizing to the skin. However I'm not a big fan with the fragrance of her soap. I bought another batch soap from her after this one, i still could not find any fragrance that i really like. What a pity.

My purchase came with a sample of clotted peach soap.

Creamery Creek Soap

I have heard so much about Creamery Creek Soap in YouTube that I have to tried it.

Delivery service is super fast. I ordered last week and got it this week. It's way much faster than any seller online. Haha....

I bought 8 bar of soap and she gave 1 bar and 3 samples free. That is so generous of her. :)

Omg she definitely make one of the best soap on earth. All the soap smell great. Sometime soap from the same seller smell similar though they are of different fragrance. Her soap do not have this characteristic. That's one of the reason why I like it.


I bought Soaps of these fragrances:

Bulgaria Rose Fragrance Oil
Mandarin Orange Fragrance Oil
Peach De Vigne Fragrance Oil
Red Clover Tea Fragrance Oil
Love Spell Fragrance Oil
WinterMint
Blueberry Scrub Fragrance Oil

She gave me a full size bonsai, mermaid shape pink sugar soap and 2 smaller other samples (lavender n oat milk).




They are stored like this....

MalenasGourmet from etsy


Being buying quite abit of soap lately... Love soaps...
2 deliveries came.... One of them is a box from MelenasCourment.
The owner is Malena, she is the nicest seller i have ever met on etsy.
She is so sweet, she actually send me a message after my purchase and ask how i find her products.
No other sellers ever does that.


She send me a card along with the soaps, that's so so sweet. I was super impressed with the way she pack my goods, everything was so neat and tight inside and nothing was damaged.

The Soap are all individually wrapped. they are so beautifully wrapped. OMG...
I wanted to try one of them and my sis nearly stop me from opening it... She keep telling me that they are so beautifully wrap and i should just keep them as they were since i have plenty of soap to use at the moment.  LOL....


Pretty soaps in gorgeous wrapping... Malenas included 2 samples for my purchase: a massage bar and a strawberry scrub soap. I have being using the scrub soap, it produce creamy foam with plenty of exfoliation beads in it and is a great scrub. I have to get a bar of this soap once i'm quite done with my current scrubs.

I bought:
Frosted cranberry
White truffle raspberry
Peach blossom
Creamy pepermint
Gingerbread
Wonderland

Why soap from etsy

Instead of buying from lush or any other big brands, u gals must have realized that I have switch to getting my bath products from home base soap makers.

One of the reasons is, there are many such businesses there and I get to try out many different products. Believe me, different soap makers make different soap. They were really very different. Qualities varies as well. It's great fun trying them up. I go back to those I really like but keep trying new ones as well.

Another reason is I feel like supporting them, I think it's not easy for small business to survive. I really don't want to see good soap makers closing down. It will be such a wasted

Hope more people will support homemade soap :)

Tarachapman etsy haul

Felted soaps.. Lol..

I never know such things exist till I come across it on etsy.

FYI

It's a soap and washcloth all in one. It's a soap covered with wool. Wool has natural anti-fungal properties and will retain its freshness.

As we use the soap, the wool remains tight around the soap making the bar last longer. The felt shrinks along with the soap and the casing can be reused by slitting along the edge and inserting a new bar of soap.

I bought 5 for $36 inclusive of shipping. Each bar weight about 6oz.

I bought:
Honey almond
Warm vanilla sugar
Buttercream cupcake
Blueberry muffin
Lime cilantro

A life deliberate esty haul

I have heard so much about Lori and her soap. Indeed she is nice and make really good soap. I have only wished that she will be more generous with her soap samples so that I can try more and buy more. Lol

I bought honey I washed the kids, voodoo berry, country clothesline, crushin on you, red moon harvest, grapefruit and peppermint, banana coconut.

I have used voodoo berry, it's smell fantastic, super intense fragrance that will last quite a while on your body after shower. It  lather  very well and produce creamy foam. It's so so good.
However it melt quite easily, it's slightly melted when it arrive.
