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.

So what scents were in it?
Our friends at The Fragrance Lounge kindly sent me a couple of candles from the Paddywax Urban Collection, which you can read about HERE. The first one I’ll be reviewing is a Fig & Olive 3.5oz/99g candle. It’s taken me so long to do this first review because I’ve been really savouring this candle.
Fig & Olive is described as a Mediterranean medley of enticing fragrances. The rich fruity aroma of freshly picked figs blends beautifully with the fresh herbaceous scent radiated from the leafy branches of an olive tree. The overall aroma is deep, fruity and truly irresistible. Read More
So happy to bring you the first of two reviews for Candle Spa. Sam wrote about their company already and today I’m bringing you a candle review. They sent me their Pomegranate and White Fig scents in candle (30cl) and reed diffuser form. Everyone in the world knows how much pomegranate has been a big scent choice of mine in the last few years. There is something very intense about the scent that really draws me into it.
A stylish and beautiful blend of exotic fresh fig fruit, fresh fig fruit, pink pepper, cardamom, frankincense and citrus, leading to a heart of clove, patchouli, lily, blended with fruity blackcurrant, warming Amber and woody fig bark.
Sounds gorgeous doesn’t it? The soy wax candle itself is beautiful, I love the clean and white vessel that it’s in. it’s good quality too and can easily be cleaned out after use to recycle it. Which I love! Read More
Soapy Skin Ltd manufacture and sell beautifully crafted handmade natural soaps, using the best sourced ingredients available. You won’t find any irritants, harmful chemicals or parabens in their products.
In both Soapy Skin’s holistic and goat’s milk ranges they only use natural solid oils, such as coconut and palm, liquid oils such as olive oil, and butters such as shea to produce something your skin will love. Their soaps are also beautifully scented, using only 100% pure essential oils, which have been specially selected for their natural, positive, effects on the skin. And finally, all the botanical additives they use not only give the soaps a fantastic colour, but also act as a mild exfoliant as well as being beneficial to your skin.
