|This is a Cucumber Wasabi Cilantro fragrance that I HP'd - I wanted to get the flecks of color in the bars, kind of like granite. I'm pleased with how the purple and green really did accent these bars.|
|This is a Pink Himalayan Salt bar that I rebatched (post to follow) . I love the color that the salt adds to the bar.|
It's time to think about beer soaps. I have really enjoyed making them in the past, including the Guinness soap I made last year, because beer makes the lather nice and fluffy and gives the soap a great toasted caramel fragrance. I added white kaolin clay to these two beer soaps for a little extra exfoliation.
It's been a week since I made the Oatmeal Stout soap, and the scent has finally calmed down - I had to put it in the garage while it's been curing because the entire house has started to smell like this soap. I like the scent, but it was incredibly overpowering at first!
|The one uses BB's Oatmeal Stout FO, and has some swirls of activated charcoal.|
|I do really like the soap now that the scent has faded.|
I also made a berry beer-y soap :) This one has some raspberry beer that my parents gave to me for soaping and a berry vanilla FO. I added some pink kaolin clay for color, and I'm in love with how this soap smells and looks.
|Even though the round soaps can be a pain to make, I really like how they fit in my hand!|
