Nothing pleases me more than discovering brands that make honest, well thought out and beautifully presented products. The Handmade Soap company does that and much more with it’s delightful range of handmade products from Ireland.
The first thing I noticed about the brand was it’s attention to detail, all the products are presented in beautiful boxes, made with FSC approved card and printed with vegetable dyes. Many of the products also come in beautiful and fully reusable and recyclable amber glass. Secondly I noticed the gorgeous scents, the products are available in lovely blends of essential oils, the beautifully fresh grapefruit and may chang, the earthy lavender, mint and rosemary, a bright blend of Lemongrass and cedarwood and lastly sweet orange, basil and frankincense. There is also a very well presented men’s range which I think even the most hesitant of men would appreciate. After such a good first impression I couldn’t wait to dive in to the products and test them out and they didn’t disappoint.
The range covers all of your body care needs starting with a luscious, thick body butter made entirely of plant oils and butters including cocoa butter and Shea butter. The body butter melts beautifully on warm skin and has a lovely soft texture I simply loved it’s nourishing feel and effects. The bath salts are a really relaxing treat, a mix of Epsom and dead sea salts with a gorgeous high quality essential oil blend that infuses the water with scent. The hand cream is an especially thick and pleasing blend that also manages to sink in well despite it’s rich texture, this left my hands so soft and with a very pleasing scent thanks to the lemongrass. The range also includes an SLS free body wash and hand wash and some gorgeous pots of lip balm with a lovely texture and very effective. Last but not least, the surprise product for me was the beautiful soy wax candle, it had a super scent throw and burnt very cleanly, with my obsession for home fragrance I always love a new candle discovery!
I really loved everything about the Handmade soap company, all the products exceeded my expectations and everything is very well priced starting at 4.95 (Priced in Euros so price in pounds will depend on current exchange rate when you buy), happily they provide free shipping across Europe with orders over fifty Euros which is also great. The Handmade Soap company is a little Irish gem with products that are both high in quality and well thought out with wonderful natural ingredients, a great discovery and lovely products.
