Nightmares Gf here!
Last week we received an offer for a full size sample from burntmill soap shop. Even though we just won the awesome giveaway basket from the CYA/SAFE soap team this is our first time actually trying handmade soap!
First off - I was surprised to see how much it lathered! I know that is a concern many first time soap buyers have and I can tell you it DEFINITELY gives off as much bubbles as commercial soap (maybe more even!)
Secondly - the soap left my skin feeling clean AND hydrated. No weird residue, no slimey-ness, nothing but cleanliness and softness!
Finally, the smell is delicious! She sent a bar of Forbidden Fruit and a small ball of stonehenge. Forbidden Fruit smells a lot like tutti frutti - very fragrant and sweet!
Stonehenge is definitely more subtle and somewhat more 'masculine' - although it still is very gender neutral (I LOVE it!).
Here is the forbidden fruit we received (I tried to take my own photos but they looked like crud - so this is from her etsy shop)
And here is stonehenge!
Best of all - this particular batch of stonehenge came out a little too dark, so it's on sale for only $2.50! I would definitely grab some if I were you! :D
Thank you so much for the soap burntmill - I've had a wonderful first experience with handmade now!
