I'm practicing my Finnish! =)
This week went by too fast :( Too much work and not enough time to do much else. However, I received these two lovely packages in the mail from Finland a couple of days ago, and it suddenly made my week so much better :D
The first package contained these 2 gorgeous soaps from Marika at www.kotikemistinpienipaja.blogspot.com
They smell divine and the colors are gorgeous! I love the droplet effect swirl in the mango butter soap, and the hanger swirl technique she used in the pomegranate vanilla soap is amazing…I love it! I am a sucker for milks and butters in soap, and both of these soaps contain milk and butter….I can’t wait to try these out! :D
These next 2 soaps were from Eija at www.eijankudonta.blogspot.com. I absolutely adored her packaging! Each soap was wrapped in tissue with a torn page from a book wrapped around it and tied with twine…so charming!
The soap on the left is a soap made with lavender water…what a nice idea! I was able to translate the ingredients as olive oil, canola oil, coconut oil, palm oil, shea butter, almond oil and lavender water. The soap on the right is made with olive oil, canola oil, coconut oil, palm oil, shea butter, castor oil, kultapiisku (flower) water and is fragranced with an apple scent…it smells so good, like a giant apple cookie! I am so in love with them both!
Thank you both for these lovely soaps, I have enjoyed this swap so much. Thank you Marika for organizing it! I had a rough week, so these were definitely a highlight for me :)
