Good afternoon blogger friends! Today I have an amazing collection of handcrafted soaps for your browsing pleasure! A little while back, Kristen from Stop, Drop and Soap sent me a TON of her beautiful soaps for me to review! It was soooo exciting to receive this huge box of soaps and to go through each individual one to smell and review it! (also why it took me so long to post this)
Even my mom got excited because she also loves homemade soaps!
So as you can see in the pictures, I wasn't kidding when I said Kristen sent me A. TON. OF. SOAPS. Like, I was blown away. Each of the soaps is so unique and truly has its own character and personality. The scents and aesthetic designs are out of this world!
I was inspired by Kristen's backstory of how she started her business. She basically used to work for a big box company and wasn't able to be creative how she would have liked, or to use natural products. So eventually she got tired of that and branched out into making her own soap line! I think it's awesome when other people take that risk to step out and be their own boss.
Kristen sent over 20 soaps, and a description of what each one is and what she used to make it. I was very impressed by the level of detail here and some of the scent combinations! Y'all know I love being creative, and love discovering creative things just as much. These scent combos are definitely creative and I don't think I've seen some of them ever used before until now!
Kristen decorated her soaps with the coolest stuff: some had glitter on them, some had gold, some even had seashells and coffee beans! I mean, how neat is that?! Not only do they smell awesome and give a delicious lather in the shower, but they're also aesthetically on point too!
(Seen here are the Sea Glass Soap, Pear Soap, and Snickerdoodle Espresso Soap.)
On the top left, you can see the Psycho Swirl Soap which smells like pear, and the Coconut Milk/Coconut Water soap with the sparkles. Right underneath is the Crazy Technigel soap, which is scented with cucumber and oak.
In the bottom left corner, some fun little SOAP ROCKS! If you're fond of the elements! Each one has a unique scent just like the other regular soaps!
This one is the Cranberry and Pomegranate Citrus soap. Lovely, warm scent!
This delicious Pina Colada soap is my absolute FAVE! I love pina coladas, anything pineapple/coconut period, and I love the design of this soap! It's so funky and it smells amazing!
I also really like the soap in the far back left corner. Ir's another coconut milk soap, scented with cucumber and kiwi. Mmm, so fresh!
The Green Tea soap is another of my favorites, naturally, since I adore green tea! To the right, is the Merlot Wine soap, which is also scented with apricot and charcoal. How fancy!
Another of my favorites - this is another coconut milk soap, scented with pomegranate and mango! I love mango flavored things almost as much as I love coconut!
And here is the Strawberry/Poppyseed soap. Love the addition of the poppyseeds!
This warm, deep cocoa colored one is a Shiner Bock Beer soap, scented with amber and pumpkin spice! I told you these combinations were unique and exciting, didn't I?
So I'm really in love with this Seashell Soap. It's absolutely gorgeous to look at! It has real Himalayan sea salts on the top along with actual seashells! I think the sea salts really make it extra amazing. This would be such an awesome gift to give a friend or family member! And it smells like the beach!
The Snickerdoodle espresso soap, from the top. Actual coffeebeans!
Coconut milk/scented with a citrus blend.
The wine soap.
Psycho swirl soap!
Love the glitter! And I'm not even a girly girl.
Overall, I am beyond impressed with Stop, Drop and Soap.
I give this shop a 10 out of 10!
After trying everything out, I definitely recommend Kristen for her high quality soap craftsmanship, devotion to using natural ingredients, and the fact that her soaps are incredibly FUN! They are excellent in the shower and great gift ideas.
You will enjoy the creativity, effort and love that is put into each individual soap!
