Villainess Soaps Review

The Muse recently shared with you one of her favorite soap companoes, Villainess Soaps. If there is anything Villainess Soaps knows how to do, it's create soaps that's for sure. With many scents to discover Villainess Soaps keeps a boring bar of soap very exciting and fresh.

Today I'll be reviewing for you two limited edition scents available from Villainess right now.

Skip ahead for it!

With swirly marble designs and pretty colors, Villainess Soap not only smells nice but looks darn beautiful too! These moisturizing soaps are an extra large size and create a ton of lather plus they come in incredibly unique scents. For $5 USD each they won't break the bank either. To get more from a bar I normally slice them in half as they are quite a large size.

Two scents that are rotating in my shower at the moment are Krakatoa and Hoarfrost both of which are great for Spring or Summer with their fresh, fruity blends.

Krakatoa is a pretty off pink with swirls of cream and a metallic pink finish on top. The scent combines exotic coconut, banana, papaya, dewfruit, and mango with normal fruits such as apple, peach, plumps, pears, and raspberries. Topping these fruits is a shot of citrus orange, pineapple, lemon, and tangerine. Alot going on in this soap and it really comes through. With a light musk and a hint of sugar and a tiny bit of sandalwood to tie it altogether you'll feel like you're in paradise with this soap gracing your shower.

Hoarfrost brings just the opposite to the table with it's pale, pink marble design. Combining the fruity scent of several berries and a cool blast of peppermint and eucalyptus you'll end up with a cool, fruity experience. This one is sure to please anyone who likes cool, minty blends. The base notes of strawberry, raspberries, and blueberries blended with the coolness of peppermint and eucalyptus makes me think of cough syrup for some reason, but not in an unpleasant way. It's quite an invigorating blend and it's literally cooling on your skin so obviously ideal for your Summer shower!

If you're looking for unique soaps with tons of character def check out Villainess Soaps. The Muse suggests Hoarfrost and Krakatoa to start with, both are yummy! Likey!

Muse, how do you try multiple soaps at once? Do you cut them into little pieces to sample or have a lot of soap dishes?

I get so sick of the same bar of soap after awhile and want to change, but it takes forever to use up a bar! Psst...sometimes I pitch a bar midway through, especially if it has lost its fragrance and is cheap like the Nivea bar soap I tried. :-0

hey girl

sorry for the delay. neither. Basically I have two small little soap drainers with suction cups on my shower. These drain the soap well and dry it out after use. After the soap is dry I pop it into a small soap container and slap a lid on it...these are really tiny rubbermaid bins I got from Harmon's for .99 for like 5?

So I just rotate daily what soap I want to use by doing this :-D I just make sure the soap isn't wet prior to storing otherwise that makes a mess which is why I use those little suction cup soap drainer thingys!

I sometimes do that too LOL some soaps def loose their scent :-D

these are good to store:

and these to dry out soap after use:

although mine stand upwards :-D
