NEW Launch: Base Blue Cosmetics Summer in Kyoto Perfume Soap Bar

NEW Launch: Base Blue Cosmetics Summer in Kyoto Perfume Soap Bar

Is it too early to start thinking about Summer? Thanks to Base Blue Cosmetics’ Summer in Kyoto Perfume Soap Bar, we’re skipping ahead to Hanami, the season when the blooming of Japanese cherry blossoms is celebrated. For those unaware, cherry blossoms are the main attraction of Kyoto. It’s the best place to fully enjoy the pink-hued blooms and they even host many special events at some of the temples and shrines for you to enjoy the festivities. The Base Blue Cosmetics Summer in Kyoto Perfume Soap Bar celebrates the celebration and the subtle and delicate scent of cherry blossoms.

NEW Launch: Base Blue Cosmetics Summer in Kyoto Perfume Soap Bar

This cruelty-free perfume soap bar is infused with the scents of Kyoto and gently yet effectively purifies all skin types. Those with sensitive skin will absolutely love it. Its delicate fragrance recreates sweetness, the very human touch of this romantic city with layers of scents. The first layer is cherry and then comes with fruity lemonade. If you’re a fan of scents like rose and gardenia, then you’ll love the distinct fragrance of this soap.

NEW Launch: Base Blue Cosmetics Summer in Kyoto Perfume Soap Bar

The Base Blue Cosmetics Summer in Kyoto Perfume Soap Bar not only smells lovely, it is wonderfully moisturizing; plus you must admit that it’s also so pretty. We love the cherry blossom soap carving inside of the transparent pink soap bar. This decorative flower soap is a feast for both the eyes and the nose.

Since we can’t really travel, we have to enjoy staycations that give the vibe of being transported to exotic locals. Indulging in a warm shower that envelopes you in the relaxing scent of the Japanese cherry blossoms is the next best thing to a trip to Kyoto. The Base Blue Cosmetics Summer in Kyoto Perfume Soap Bar is a must for relaxing self-care moments. At $8.00 a bar, you can score a bar or to for yourself on www.basebluecosmetics.com.

The Best Scented Soaps You’ll Want to Lather Up With

We have all gotten to know our soaps a lot more than we used to. We can attest to not really talking too much about soap as we do now. It’s true we had favorites; we loved some because of how our skin felt after using them, and others because of how much we love the scents. Today, we’re highlighting hand, and body soaps that both leave your skin feeling great and smell wonderful. The following are our favorite scented soaps you’ll want to lather up with.

Soapcreek Company: Artisan Soap that’s More than Just Eye Candy

Soapcreek Company: Artisan Soap That’s More Than Just Eye Candy

During this time of uncertainty and fear, the masses are buying up all hand sanitizers. The funny thing is, we’re not seeing the same reaction for soap. Maybe you guys are already stocked up or you’re just not buying because soaps are made from ingredients you’re not fans of. Or maybe you’re all looking for great-looking soaps that will love your skin. Today we’re going to introduce you to a wonderful organic soap company that leaves out synthetic fragrances, dyes, and other harsh chemicals. Instead, the artisan soaps from Soapcreek Company are made from sustainably-sourced essential oils, natural clays, minerals, butters, and herbs sourced both locally and worldwide. Plus, they’re wonderfully decorative.

Soapcreek Company: Artisan Soap that’s More than Just Eye Candy

Not only are the hand-poured and hand-mixed Soapcreek Company soaps are available in a wide variety; 21 glorious artisan soap offerings to be exact. We had the pleasure of experiencing four of these large and luxurious 6 oz bars. These four included:

Island Citrus – your skin and your senses will love the combination of hydrating Mango butter, fresh coconut milk, citrus essential oils and a touch of sweet balsam. This combination rejuvenates, brightens, tones, softens, soothes chapped, raspy, or sensitive skin.

Lavender Honey – calm and refresh your skin at the same time with this dual soap bar. Soothing Aloe and French Clay, along with a layer of raw honey holds moisture, relaxes, soothes and heals the skin. Floral lavender oil with a hint of citrus controls sebum.

Carrot Honey – this gentle bar features Carrot puree, making it high in vitamins A and E to nourish your skin. The honey holds moisture, while goat milk nourishes your skin. We’re currently enjoying using this amazing soap; we love the invigorating touch of clary sage oil, a great antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory that’s perfect for stress reduction.

Orange Honey Blossom – this earthy soap combines rich Cocoa Butter and honey with exfoliating orange peel to make it a moisturizing treat. The addition of Ylang Ylang, bergamot, and sweet orange essential oils relieves anxiety and brightens dull, oily, or wrinkled skin.

Finchberry Handcrafted Soaps

Finchberry Soaps – Uniquely Decadent Sensory Bath Experience

When you think of bath soaps, the last thing you think of is baked goods; but today we’re highlighting some deliciously aromatic and wonderfully stunning soaps that are actually baked. Feast your eyes on the beauty that is Finchberry Soaps. These decadent, handcrafted soaps feature natural, food-grade ingredients, a unique decadent appearance, and a lush gentle lather. The Finchberry soaps are not just a cleanser, they are gluten-free, vegan-friendly, made without any harsh chemical preservatives, and boast a sensory experience.

Finchberry Handcrafted Soaps

All of the Finchberry soaps are handcrafted in their Northern Florida studio. A studio which is filled with piping bags, baking racks, ovens, and dough mixers. No surprise as Finchberry was started by Owner/Founder Ashley Robertson in her kitchen in Washington DC. It looks as much like a bakery as their soaps look like baked goods. As you can imagine, they smell absolutely incredible, some of them almost edible.

Finchberry Handcrafted Soaps

We had the pleasure of experiencing the Soap by the Slice and wow. First of all, we didn’t start using it until a month after receiving the Best Seller’s Sampler Tin; not because we didn’t like it, but because we loved the smell of the soaps so much. We found ourselves repeatedly opening and closing the tin to indulge in the aromatic wonder of these beautiful soaps. Look at them, can you blame us, you can practically inhale the scents through the screen. These soaps will captivate you visually, aromatically, and touchably; your skin will absolutely love them.

Finchberry Handcrafted Soaps

The Finchberry Soaps are available in several yummy scents. Our tin contained Cranberry Chutney, Grapes of Bath (sweet summer berries and lightly-frosted autumn grapes), Renegade Honey (honey and almond bitter), Tart me Up (raspberry, lemon, and real Moroccan rose buds), Sweetly Southern (wild honeysuckle), Spark (notes of orange, apple, grapefruit, peach and strawberry with just a touch of loganberry), Sweet Dreams (lavender and vanilla), and Darling (cherry blossom, sensual white lily and blushing violet petals blended with a hint of warm vanilla).

Of course, these beautiful, handcrafted soaps are not the only thing Finberry Soaps has to offer. You can also indulge in Fizzy Salt Soaks, Shimmer Body Washes, Hand Cremes, Sugar Scrub Cubes, Solid Perfumes, Soap Dishes (they have the cutest ones – we fell in love with the Victorian Iron Soap Dish), and so much more.

Finchberry Handcrafted Soaps

We promise you won’t be disappointed with these amazing bath products. Get to know all the Finchberry products by visiting www.finchberry.com.

Biggs & Featherbelle plant-based body care products

Biggs & Featherbelle: All-Natural, Plant-Based Body Care

We are not morning people. In fact, we can step into the shower and still be asleep; which is why we welcome invigorating scents to wake us up. Of course when it comes to your skincare, the most important isn’t scent, it’s how great it is for your skin. Luckily with the all-natural, plant-based body care, Biggs & Featherbelle, we get the best of both worlds. Get ready to invigorate your skin and your senses with the range of handmade soaps, bath fizzies, body butter, bath soaks, and body scrubs.

Created by sisters, Kelly and Kasey, Biggs & Featherbelle are made only with pure essential oils and plant-based ingredients. The soaps are handmade the old-fashioned way using cold processing to preserve the natural beneficial properties of the ingredients. We had the wonderful pleasure of trying out a few Biggs & Featherbelle products including the Barbados Sweet Orange & Grapefruit Soap, Bar-garita Key Lime & Sea Salt Soap, Lemon Bar Lemongrass & Shea Butter Soap, Lime & Sea Salt Body Scrub, Soul Kiss Sweet Bergamot lip balm, and Lemon Coconut whipped shea butter.

As soon as we opened the package, our entire apartment was engulfed in the amazing combination of sweet citrus scents. It was like having a scented candle burning. Talk about amazing aromatherapy! Of course, we couldn’t wait to indulge in the products and started with the Barbados Sweet Orange & Grapefruit Soap. This amazing cleansing soap is great for oily skin; it features sweet orange to nourish and balance excess oil, pink grapefruit to tone skin, and olive oil to moisturize.

We’re waiting until we’re done with the Barbados soap to use the other soaps; from what our skin has experienced (no dryness or tightness and it feels supple even before applying a moisturizer), we know we won’t be disappointed.

The Lime & Sea Salt Body Scrub is even more incredible than it sounds. It’s not teeming with oil, so there are no worries about possibly slipping in the shower. Its scent is vividly potent and you’ll love how your skin feels afterward. The multitasking Soul Kiss Sweet Bergamot lip balm is a dream. Not only does it moisturize, but it’s also great for reducing inflammation, soothing chapped and cracked lips, and heals, cools and helps prevent cold sores. We’ve never heard of a non-medical grade lip balm doing that!

Finally, the absolutely heavenly Lemon Coconut whipped shea butter. Raw shea butter is whipped into an almost fluffy, lightweight body butter that regenerates the skin, hydrates dry and damaged skin and hair. The lemon essential oil helps to tone and balance the skin.

We are in love with the all-natural, plant-based products from Biggs & Featherbelle. They have 20 soaps and we’re dying to try them all. Plus you can buy raw shea butter or cocoa butter in bulk.
