Whilst browsing online I recently came across Soaparama, a relatively local company (Manchester based) who specialise in handcrafted soaps, bath fizzies and organic soy candles. Their products looked so enticing I had to make a small order.
Looking on their website there were so many products vying for my attention – in particular the soaps which were beautifully designed and came in a wide variety of blends! As lovely as the soap bars looked, with Valentine’s Day approaching I selected the very lovely sounding Chocolate Bubblegum and Coconut Bubblegum soaps (£2.50 each), although I couldn’t resist throwing in the very jewel-like Cherry Blossom soap. All are SLS free and are crafted using natural dyes.
When my order arrived the soaps in particular were very attractively and carefully presented in contrasting organza bags with little peg embellishments; this makes them the perfect gifts. The packaging will definitely be repurposed and it really adds value to the already reasonably priced soaps.
I also ordered some of the heavenly sounding bath fizzies (£3.60 per 150g). Again these come in a wide variety of scents, but as my favourites are lavender and rose I selected Lovely Lavender and English Garden Rose. All Soaparama’s bath fizzies benefit from the addition of skin-softening sweet almond oil and are SLS free, so no harsh chemicals for your skin! These were also nicely packaged although I’ve got the cutest sweetie jars (pictured) that i’m using to store and display my bath fizzies; they’re the perfect size and look fabulous!
I love that Soaparama have also thought of their little customers, which is just as well because my 3 year old is obsessed with bath products! As well as turtles and crocodiles there are little fishes and friendly snowmen, which you can have in any one of the scents available. Here we have the Sweet Orange fragrance; a zesty blend that comes from lemon rind and orange oil.
All Soaparama’s products are made in small batches or to order, ensuring they are super fresh, but even with this in mind my order was ready and arrived within a week. I was really impressed with the communication from Natacha at Soaparama, and the attention to detail when packaging all the items was second to none. I’m definitely one happy customer and will be returning for more soapy goodies!
