I recently received a nice bar of homemade soap from Hen N Chicks Soap for review purposes. I love homemade soaps and this bar was quite lovely. I love the rustic look of a nice homemade bar of soap and the Vanilla Mint scent put me in the Christmas spirit.....Yes, it was June, but it did remind me of a Christmas-y scent.
This bar of soap is made from totally good-for-you ingredients including sunflower, coconut, olive and palm oils as well and wintergreen essential oil and vanilla crystals. I love the way homemade soap makes my skin feel and this soap was no exception. The oils are very good for your skin and the wintergreen and vanilla scent was very nice.
I have noticed in my own homemade soaps that are darker that the color of the soap tends to leave a little messy residue in the bath. Not a ring, but brown soapy spots where ever the lather splatters. Not a problem that isn't easily rinsed away, but it is something to be aware of...especially if you have little guys who like to play in the tub and don't rinse afterward.
