(Excuse the crappy color and lighting in the photos you're about to see. It's been so rainy and dark here lately that natural light has not been an option. I used to have a program that could edit photos, tweak the colors and balance, etc., but since I switched to this other computer I don't have a program like that yet.)
You might remember a post not too long ago about the shops that I want to try when I go on my next soap shopping frenzy. Country Soaps By Marlene was one of them. I didn't think I'd be trying her things so soon but an opportunity presented itself recently, so I hopped on it. She had mentioned on Facebook that she had made some body sprays and was looking for a few people to try them in return for feedback. She had some other Facebook specials that day, so in the end I had compiled a package of sample goodies to try. I did pay discounted prices on some of these things, and some were included for free.
I also received two bar soap samples. The brown piece on the left is Cherokee Creek scent, described as 'earthy with notes of oakmoss and sandalwood, yet light and airy with just a hint of floral and herbs. Great unisex fragrance.' The green/tan one on the right is Sandalwood & Clary Sage scent. I already know I like her bar soaps because I tried a sample a while ago and more recently had bought a bar of Oatmeal, Milk & Honey at a local farmers market. While I haven't actually tried these two newest samples, I know that her soaps lather great and because they are goat milk soap they are super moisturizing.
So in my fun little package of mixed goodies I found a mixed bag of results. I'd also like to remind everyone that these are MY opinions of the products. Perhaps your preferences a different than mine and things I didn't like might be right up your alley. Country Soaps By Marlene has been doing good business for some time now and she has a large line of products to choose from, so she's certainly doing something right! I encourage you to check out her shop and give her things a try!
