Beautiful Soaps!

I am a sucker for natural and handmade soaps.  When I came across Beautiful Soaps on Etsy, I knew I wanted to try some of the soaps!  Heather at Beautiful Soaps ahs some fo the most original and creative combinations I have ever seen!  For example, how about Lavendar Chamomile Cocoa Butter Bars?  Or Lemongrass Poppyseed with French Yellow Clay?  Or Cinnamon Ice Lip Cooler Balm?

I received an instant response from Heather, who was so kind to ship me three different soaps to sample!
She sent me these soaps:

Her soaps come beautifully packaged, and wrapped in paper with custom labels.  They would make fabulous house warming gifts, pick-me-up presents, spouse gifts, or mother's/father's day presents! 

One thing that I am always curious about when sampling natural or handmade soaps is to find out whether or not they lather.  A lot of the soaps I have tried in the past feel almost slimy, but don't actually lather.  I am one of those people that needs to feel a lather in order to feel clean!

Great news... Beautiful Soaps LATHER!!  And they lather really well!  The oatmeal soap she sent is amazing- it not only lathers, but the oatmeal acts as a great exfoliator!

Her soaps ALL smell incredible.  She has really mastered combining the scents to create the perfect blend!

Heather also has some other wonderful products in her store.  Check out her STORE to see what else she offers!
