When I gave up soap making a month or so ago, I sold all of my silicone molds and things by posting a clearance sale on Facebook. Response was immediate! I knew my prices were low and I was ok with that because I just wanted to clear everything out and be done with it.
One of the ladies who bought some of my things was Misty, and she was so friendly and easy to work with. I wasn't too familiar with her before the sale but have since been watching her videos on YouTube. I think she's a newer soap maker, working with melt-n-pour first and just starting to get into cold process. Not long after receiving the things she bought from me, she told me she'd already used one of the molds and it worked great, and she wanted to send me some soap as thanks. Well how sweet is that?
And I got such a kick out of the fact that the soap was made in my silicone mold, and was packaged in my Halloween treat bag, with my Halloween sticker on it. So sweet.
HERE and HERE) and then so bummed with the results (HERE). And then other soap makers reported having problems trying to do Candy Corn cold process soap, longtime soap makers, so I think the general consensus was that the fragrance oil itself was the problem. I don't know if they were all from the same supplier but it seems likely they were if everyone was having problems.
Anyway, enough sidetracking. Misty included a bar of her Candy Corn attempt. I emailed her and told her to just name it something pretty and no one would ever know what it *should* have been. It is still a nice looking soap with that pink blending into white, and the smell is awesome. If you know it's Candy Corn it does smell like it, but if you didn't know you'd think it was just a really nice sweet vanilla scent. Looking forward to trying this one too.
Left to right . . .
A Life Deliberate - Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream goat milk soap. This is the shop I have not tried. I did receive a couple samples in a giveaway that I won a while ago from someone else, but I had passed them along to other people. It's only been recently that I've become more aware of this shop and added it to my list of ones to try. The scent is minty but light, and I don't pick up any chocolate or ice cream sweetness.
Beacon Creations - Snowcakes. The sticker on the package says it's a bubble bar but it looks like regular soap. I'll have to find out for sure what it is. The scent is a Lush dupe of Snow Cake, an almond-marzipan fragrance. It smells soooo yummy. I'll have to add this scent to my Next Time I Order list.
Nature's Essence - Green Apple Explosion. It's called the ' "spunkiest" green apple fragrance on earth' on the website, and yeah, it's a green apple scent. Nice and summery.
Nature's Art - Pink Sugar. 'A fruity blend of cotton candy, lemon drops, caramel and raspberry jam on a dry down of musks. A wonderful dupe of Aquolina`s Pink Sugar.' I'm familiar with this scent from my own soap making, and I really do like it. I should put the actual perfume on my birthday/Christmas list this year!
It was so much fun to get these little goodies. Thank you, Misty!!
