This is actually an old review I did back in January this year, I posted on my Vox but forgot to do it here. Anyway, I was intrigued by this Etsy seller because he is a dude. A dude who makes soaps *w00t* And he's really cute.
Ok....*ehm* lemme get back on track.
His name is Dennis and I believe it's his side job. His father also sells soap (he learnt from Dennis, he said LOL) and it's just fun seeing him & his family modeling their soaps in the site.
Etsy always have this SNS (Saturday Night Special) when sellers would have discounted items/specials, so you'd better watch out for that, and I was gambling if I should give it a shot.
He had a 20% off discount entire store and I am always a big fan of bath cream, which is called Whipped Soap in a Jar. So I picked his Vanilla Cream scent and it was the only one with $0.75 shipping!
When the package came, I was surprise that he included a free full size soap =) The packaging is great, all nicely wrapped and the label is just too cute!
Here is the free pretty soap, Exfoliating Oatmeal soap in Strawberry & Grapefruit, smells so refreshing. Again, I adore the cute artsy label.
I have tried so many whipped soap and Dennis Anderson's on the hard texture. They're more like icing instead of cream, but I still like it. They bubble nicely and the scent (Vanilla Cream) is very creamy & soft. If you'd prefer a stronger scent, I'd suggest NOT to get Vanilla Cream though, it's pretty light in my opinion.
Strawberry & Grapefruit smells nice, very fresh & tangy, perfect for summer. As a soap, it's ok but not the best I've tried, the scent doesn't really linger but then again it's all about preference. I like my soap to have double side job as perfumes too on my lazy nights :P
So there you go, Etsy is a fun way to try handmade stuffs without breaking a bank *scoff* LUSH *scoff* and the sellers are mostly friendly for one on one approach. Watch for Dennis's SNS, he often has $.75 shipping specials!
