Got your sunglasses on?!



I honestly don’t know what to think of this soap! Everything went nice and smooth, did some swirls...

Close up before I sprinkled it with glitter…
In the morning, this is what a found! NEON soap! Ack!
 
It must be from the fragrance oil (Black Raspberry Vanilla), but there is no milk or any weird ingredients that would react to cause the discoloration. 

Two days later, and it still seems just as bright:
I bet I couldn't replicate these colors again if I tried!

  1. Ah, yes, the Black Raspberry Vanilla with a yellow surprise....it's happened to me, too. Yours is striking, though--I like the delicate swirls! And the little black raspberry in the corner is the perfect finishing touch.

  2. Well I'm glad to know it's not just me! Did yours stay yellow? And thanks for the compliment DH :)

    1. I'm afraid the yellow stuck around, but it did fade slightly. At least yellow is better than that dark brown with most vanillas!

    2. Well, that's good to know about the yellow...and you're right, dark brown would have swallowed up those swirls for sure!

  3. Maybe you should call it Black Raspberry Vanilla Sunshine?
    I think it is a beautiful soap even with the yellow. And it is not that bright :)

    1. Thanks Gloria...it will be interesting to see how yours behaves. I might try BRV from another company next time to see if it behaves better.

  6. I think it's a beautiful swirl. The soap must have been feeling sunshiney when it was saponifying. Dreams of the sun that will come eventually ;)

  7. Es un jabón muy bonito, con esos remolinos y colores...
    Es lo que tiene, que cuando hacemos jabón no sabemos muy bien los colores finales que van a quedar.

  10. I've had this happen before too...with a fragrance that I never have problems with. I had thought maybe I didn't mix well, so I threw the batch out! The neon yellow was startling, lol. Your soap still turned out pretty!

  12. The soap is still gorgeous, Cee Gee! I don't think that the yellow diminishes its beauty at all. The swirls are so pretty, and I love the little raspberries.

  13. The soap turned out gorgeous no matter that it’s maybe not in line with your expectations. For me this soap design is about small details which are really outstanding. Grate job Cee!
