Heavenly Soaps quick review

christiansmom requested photos of this soap, so I figured I would paste my mini review in with these too. I didn't initially review these because they were gifts for Jas, but he has been a dear and told me to use them too! :D

The qtip is for size comparison length/width, the thickness of these is over an inch, probably close to 1.5 inches!

This is the kitchen coffee soap, it has coffee grounds in it!

One recent discovery really surprised and impressed me. Heavenly Soaps are mostly single note scents, natural in color, they bubble up so nicely and feel wonderfully moisturizing. Best of all they are VERY affordable. She sends two gigantic bars (same scent) to you, wrapped in those old timey waxy-like drugstore type bags. And her price? Get this! $2-3 for two HUGE bars + shipping.

I hauled like a jackrabbit from her for Christmas gifts for Jas. My favorite so far is the cranberry scented soap. Its very juice-like and sweet, more than it is tart. I haven't sniffed a cranberry quite like it before. Jas' favorite is the coconut lime.
She left feedback the same day I made the purchase 11/30 and I left her feedback on 12/5 after it had arrived. Pretty darn fast for the time of year it was!

I noticed at her etsy shop just now that she has more complex scents than when I shopped! Also at her webshop off Etsy, she carries bath bombs, salts, laundry soap, liquid soap, massage oil, shampoo bars, mini soaps (ball shaped), and you can even get a custom made soap loaf!

I layered one coat over Revlon Powder Puff. Must to be saving the holo! Its a teeny bottle, like the Petites brand.

Ozotic 534

llarowe is where I got this one
I have some of the multi chromes, but this is my only mishmash. With this order I also got Hits Hefestia(?) to layer over my creme colors. I saw a blogger who had done some examples and well, this is the only holo anyone needs other than a mish mash, its a different monster. xD

DIY - Bath Bombs!

These are toasted marshmallow scented and my black coloring, as you can see, turned green!
These lost their shape a bit and look more like pillows than a bomb half. xD
Too wet I reckon, I'll try again!

These are nearly perfect! Keeping their shape, color is exactly what I wanted and omg they smell wonderful! I blended three FOs together:
Autumn Harvest
Pumpkin Pie
Toasted Marshmallow

The real test now is to see whether they crack after curing.

I'm pretty proud of these, and I have more ingredients left so I can make some more, but I want to see how these go first!!

Second batch of the same, they didn't crack but they were slightly fragile when moved.

Buggy Town Candle Co.

I saw this tart on her facebook page way before Christmas and thought I would give them a try. 1.50 w/free shipping, not much risk right? wrong! because now I want to HAUL from them! lol

Here is her website:

Christmas Hearth - This scent will take you back to the magic of Christmas Eve and sure to become a classic holiday fragrance. Christmas Hearth combines orange & spices from the kitchen, a touch of Christmas tree and a dash of earthiness from the fireplace. This fragrance oil is infused with natural orange, cinnamon, and pine essential oils
--This is really every scent that Christmas brings with it. Smokey fireplaces, pine, apple cider, and baked goods. Its really a trip down memory lane! So cozy and yummy.

Cindy's Apple Pie was a freebie, which I did not expect for such a cheap order!
Aroma of Cindy's homemade apple pie straight from the oven.
--This one is very cinnamon and very apple, with a touch of sweet sugar but not candy like.

I love the souffle cup packaging, the labels are soo cute and prim, the way the wax looks soft and silky almost, and how heavily scented these appear.
The tart was really easy to pop out of the container and 15 seconds into melting the whole room was scented. The throw is very strong for this scent; I can even smell it over the dinner that Jas is cooking. :D

I think Buggy Town nailed this scent and has done an excellent job with this tart!

This short sweet review felt good, anyone up for another? :)
