I did a review recently of Soapy Skin Ltd’s Honey Oats Goats Milk Soap, which you can read HERE. I was also sent one of their Bergamot & Calendula Soaps to review, which is part of their holistic range of handmade soaps.
We’re both part mermaid (also part unicorn) so we got super excited when our Shell Yeah mermaid, girly, beachy, themed Melt Crowd Boxes arrived. When we saw the scent selection we knew it was another winner from our buddies at Flamingo Candles. They’ve been really knocking it out of the park this year.
In case you don’t know already, The Melt Crowd is a monthly wax subscription box from Flamingo Candles. Each box contains eight delicious Scent Melts. The individual fragrances are a surprise – they include a combination of old favourites, current scents, new yet-to-be-launched scents and scents exclusive to The Melt Crowd. With your first box as a member of The Melt Crowd, you’ll receive a wax burner, to ensure you’re fully ready to explore Flamingo Candles’ amazing scents. You’ll also get a 20% discount code too with every box. SCORE!
So what scents were in this month’s box?
I have written about Candle Spa before and their Pomegranate & White Fig Candle which I loved. I was intrigued that they had sent me the Reed diffuser to review in the same scent but I didn’t expect for different aspects of the scent would come forward. There was also the POREX e-reeds that I’d never tried before.
A reminder of the scent description:
A stylish and beautiful blend of Exotic fresh fig fruit, green fig leaf, pink pepper, cardamom, frankincense and citrus, leading to a heart of clove, patchouli, lily, blended with fruity blackcurrant, warming amber and woody fig bark.
July was a crazy month, I had so much to do and so much planned, it was just manic, but it was wonderful too as it was my birthday month, which meant lots of cake and presents. YAY!
I have quite a few favourites this month but they’re all epic!
I’ve never been a lover of soap, even fancy or expensive handmade ones. I’ve usually either thought they were poorly made or had a bad reaction to them, plus I’ve never liked the feeling of my skin after using them, it’d feel extra tight and dry. So when Soapy Skin Ltd contacted me about doing a review, I was a bit nervous, but after reading all about their award winning Honey Oats Goats Milk Soap (it won the Janey Loves Platinum Award last year and quite recently it won a Silver Award in the Problem Skin Category from Free From Skincare), I was intrigued. I don’t think I’ve ever tried anything made from goat’s milk so I was curious as to how my sensitive skin would handle it.
