I wanted to share with you the gorgeous soaps that my soap blogging friend Laura, from Glad Heart Soaps, recently sent to me when we all took part in a forum soap swap that she so kindly organized. It was so much fun, and I was blown away her generosity….look at the beautiful array of soaps she sent!
Her mom crocheted the wash cloth, isn’t it just adorable? I’ve tried to knit a wash cloth and ended up with big gaping holes…her mom’s is stitched so neat and tidy and I love the pastel colors! I love how colorful and bold Laura’s soaps are, they smell fantastic! I couldn’t stop sniffing the Rainbow Sherbet, it smelled sooooo good! See that cute little stack with the flower on top? I didn’t want to open it, it looked so pretty!
But I did……I love the matching papers and they looked so nice all wrapped up…..I didn’t want to open them up!
But I did, ha ha! I’m in love with the soap curls on top of her Fresh Fallen Leaves and Pineapple Jasmine soap, so pretty! I was especially excited to see Mystery Fragrance #4….Laura was selected to be a member of BrambleBerry's S.O.A.P. team this fall, and this was one of the fragrances they sent her to test! I can’t wait to see what this fragrance ends up being…I detected chocolate and coconut, but Laura tells me that she and Jenny from I’d Lather Be Soaping definitely picked out pear (my nose is just a little off…lol!).
The first thing I noticed when I lathered up Laura’s soap was how SILKY it was! The lather literally felt silky on my skin, so I looked on her soap label and sure enough, her soaps contain tussah silk fibers. I must try some silk in soap, you can definitely feel the silk and her soaps have such a lovely, rich, creamy lather! I loved the wide variety of fragrances that she used too...from sweet to crisp to fresh. If I had to pick an absolute favorite fragrance…it would be a 3-way tie between the Rainbow Sherbet, Peach Smoothie and Fresh Fallen Leaves. Honestly though, they all smelled fantastic!
I absolutely adore each and every soap you sent Laura, you completely spoiled me....thank you from the bottom of my heart!
