The Soap District

The Soap District very kindly sent me these beauuutiful-smelling samples recently -- I have to say, they made the whole of my morning post smell incredibly good!  I was very surprised with how generous the sizes of the soaps were that I received (and the fact that I received three!).  The samples that they sent to me are all very different, allowing me to have a clearer idea of the rest of their range.

Rose melt, £1.89*

Aesthetically, this was my favourite of the three soaps -- the texture of it is unusual and it's sizing is very handy.  However, I wasn't quite so keen on the scent.  I'm always fairly cautious when it comes to Rose-fragranced products.. for some reason, I find them rather headachey and I have to be careful with any contact due to my sensitive skin.  I don't think that the scent of this soap is very youthful and I could imagine it more as a complimentary hotel soap (if that makes sense?).

Despite saying this, I am yet to put this soap into bathwater so the scent may be toned down a little... With my review for Gelicity, I commented on the fact that the Lavender and Jasmine fragrances became more subtle as they were broken down by the water so the same could possibly be said for this little bath melt!

Satsuma soap, £2.19*

Oh my, the smell of this soap was SO good... if a soap was edible, this would be gone by now.  This Satsuma soap from the essential oil range was so refreshing and felt very summery with the citrus scents.  I know that some of you may not be fans of citrus products but this was by no means overpowering.  The sample size I was sent was very large so this would last for ages!  I also loved the little fruity/jelly pieces trapped in the middle -- upon contact with my skin, it felt very smooth and quite creamy.. as if I had melted chocolate on my hand?  I love the feeling of this product and I would recommend this as a bathroom nust-have.  This soap is paraben free and suitable for sensitive skin, perfect for me!

Strawberry Fields soap, £2.19*

As with the Satsuma soap, I fell in love with the Stawberry Fields one -- the smell is good enough to eat and even the website says that it's 'good enough to make your mouth water'!  I love any product that has a strawberry fragrance to it.. I find the scent very relaxing and I love to have that rub off on my skin.  This sample was a great size too, the same as the Satsuma soap, and it also comes from the essential oils range.  This bar feels very creamy on your skin, but it's not the kind of soap that is difficult to wash off due to this.  I'm more of a shower person and The Soap District say that you can use this as a replacement to shower gel, so I'm certainly going to try that out.  I absolutely cannot fault this product -- I was very happy with what I received!

For any of you that like to add a bit of colour to your bathroom with decorative soaps, I'd say that these are great.  Not just for display purposes obviously, they do exactly what they claim to!  I also only looked at the prices of these after they had arrived, so that I could include them in this post, and I am very surprised at how low they are -- great for what you receive!  I normally go to The Body shop for soaps, I can't help but get dragged in by all the vibrant colours of theirs, but I really would recommend The Soap District to anybody now.  All of my samples arrived the following day since talking with the company and they offer great customer service.  Finally, I was in no way influenced to say any of the things I did in this post.  I was genuinely so happy with what I received! :)
