My Take on these Products:
After receiving my handmade soap samples, I was surprised at how yummy it smelled – not like the soaps with artificial fragrants flooded to perfume the soap, it smells more like home, earthy and damn delicious. I loved the way each one looked and smelled. The soaps have a distinct look about them and are mindfully handcrafted. The soaps have no glitter, no decorative toppings and no fancy items. The soaps are plain except for that they are colourful and have small chunks/pieces of the fruits/flavour embedded to them.
The packaging that you see here is a sample not of the full sized product. The packaging is simple and cute. A brand new pack is travel friendly and I love the fact that you get to see a sneak peek of the soap without opening the carton.
The soaps lather decently and are firm. They don’t melt like other handmade soaps I have tried and they get consumed only normally not quickly. The soaps are paraben and toxin free and not tested against animals. These soaps are free from chemicals and are mild and gentle on skin. It gave no irritations to my sensitive allergy prone skin.It did no harm to my skin. The soaps are hydrating and moisturising and it gave a fresh feel. The cleansing effect was quite good. The soaps are not over drying and over powering considering the fact that the scent is natural and bit strong. I like the fact that these soaps contain essential oils.
The soaps are uplifting and instantly energize our body and soul. These are so soothing to the senses. It doesn’t take any extra efforts to rinse off and it doesn’t leave a residue or slippery feel. Those of you who are interested in natural products and want to know what goes IN to it, the ingredients are clearly marked on the back of each label. The sleep inducer is therapeutic and aromatic. I find it so relaxing that I automatically want to sleep. I spray it to my pillow, bed sheets and clothes. I am planning to purchase a full size of the sleep inducer soon coz I have the “not sleeping mania” which makes me stay awake till late night.
My personal favourite amongst these soaps is lavender, lemongrass and strawberry.

I love these soaps and it was a great pampering experience using them. If you are worried about the price, I would say that they are still economical as they’re not going to turn to mush in contact with water so they should last longer than your average! These soaps are aromatic and they are such wonderful delights.
