Last April, Cee of Oil & Butter had a tagline-making contest and a giveaway. Surprise, surprise, I won the giveaway! I had it sent to my sister in California, to be shipped together with my E.O. and F.O. orders. After 2 long months, the box from my sister arrived the other day. Woohoo! :) Oh my, the bath cookie smells like the most heavenly shortbread cookie! It’s kinda hard not to bite into it. I have not used the bath tub in a while, but now I have to so I can soak in the yummy goodness of the bath cookie. I immediately used the lip butter and I love the way it feels creamy and luxurious. The lavender soap will have to wait for its turn but I am sure it will be nothing but awesome. I still have several bars in the shower and there are a few others lined up to be used – the problems we face with too many soaps! :D
My best friend went to Japan last April and she came home with the strangest looking soap for me. It’s supposed to be a cherry blossom soap but to my nose it smelled more like lychee. It was packed in plastic-lined paper (shown in the background, under the tag) and it was swimming in a bit of liquid. I had to google about this jelly-like soap, and as it turned out, it was something Lush popularised a few years ago that spawned many copycats. I would not be surprised if Lush got the idea from Japan. The Japanese are always coming up with the coolest and most unique ideas. I’ve been saving this soap to blog about. With that out of the way, I can finally use this squishy fun soap tonight! Wheee!
Nearly every time I research on soap packaging, I come across Izola soaps. It was thus a pleasant surprise to be holding it in person, thanks to my Hong Kong-based friend who sent it to me for soapy inspiration. She likes the size of the soap and the way it’s packaged as a set.
She also sent me a Claus Porto soap for its scent, called Paradise Rose.
I am one lucky girl to be receiving all these wonderful bath goodies. Thank you Cee, Candice and Alex! :)
