Pure Natural Luxury Soap Review
I found out about this brand via instagram actually after meeting a lovely young lady named Samantha on there by chance. We got to talking when one day I realized on her page she sold soaps. If you would like to go follow her as well her ig name is purenaturalluxuries. I went ahead and got several soaps, for a for warning atm the shipping is rather high because it is coming from Canada, she is working on getting this lowered with a small business license. But that will not stop me from shopping again as these are the most splendid and yummy smelling soaps I've ever gotten. What made me go the extra mile is they are all hand made and free of parabens, sodium laurel/laureth sulphates (SLS), mineral oil, petroleum or phthalates. Which is a huge bonus to me as Matt has Eczema and I have sensitive skin. Now on to the soaps. I realize as I'm typing this I forgot to photo something as in the Alabama heat it didn't last long. Its the Massage Bar which are just darling. I'm going to kidnap a photo from the website so you can see what it looks like. To get these go to Pure Natural Luxuries web site.
Now let me start with my top 3 favorites (this was a lot harder to do than I thought it would be)
This one is called Dream - Cake Slice Silk Soap, it smells amazing. Its description on the site is "A very delicate aroma of fresh lavender blowing in the summer wind, with notes of sweet sugar and powder. Ultra-hydrating soap made with Coconut oil and 10% Shea butter." Its cure date is May the 9th so I cannot use it until then but It will sit all lovely on my pink cake stand until then. It smells very relaxing and reminds me of summer when I was a kid for some reason. All in all I'm very excited to use this one. And do I have to say this, its absolutely gorgeous! This girl has got some major talent!!
Another favorite is Caramel Apple Crisp - Cupcake Silk Soap, this one smells very crisp and tart with an edge of sweetness. Perfect for summer! The description on this one is "Caramel Apple Crisp has the aroma of Granny Smith apples, followed by the sultry, smooth flavours of cinnamon and nutmeg and a hint of caramel, finished off by lingering hints of vanilla cookie. A wonderfully moisturizing soap with 10% Shea butter. Topped off with a light sprinkling of honey oatmeal silk soaps that looks like the crunchy topping on a crumble." Also with all the cupcake soaps it is advised to take a large knife and cut down from the top to the bottom so you can use the flat end against you. In case any of you were wondering.
Another favorite is the Spiced Orange - Silk Soap, this smells like fall. Any of you that know me know that I love anything that has a pumpkin scent to it and anything with a cinnamon scent to it and anything in general that smells good. This smells like heaven. Its description is " Ignite your senses with the sweet and spicy scent of cinnamon heart candies, followed by a wave of fresh and intense warm orange which is balanced out by delicate notes of clove and nutmeg at the base. Spiced Cinnamon is made with a moisturizing base of 10% Shea Butter, swirls of ground cinnamon, and finished with a dusting of ground cinnamon on top."
The ones that didn't make the top 3 but I still love all of them.
Let me start with Jasmine - Silk Soap. This reminds me of home. My parents have a jasmine plant in the front yard so on a warm night you can smell it clear as day. Its amazing. This was a very close one with Spiced Orange. Its description is "A classic, exotic Jasmine Silk Soap. Top flowery notes are blended with ozone and a touch of fruity notes. Heart notes of rose and lilac are rounded with musk and wood notes at the base. This ultra rich Silk Soap is made with 10% Shea butter which makes it very moisturizing and nourishing for your skin. Gorgeous white floral design on top of each soap."
Whisper - Cupcake Silk Soap is a lovely blend of lavender and Vanilla, it is nothing like Dream if you were thinking that. I thought they would be similar but they are nothing alike aside from the lavender. This one does have a much louder lavender smell than dream. Its description is "A beautiful fragrant aroma of Lavender with base notes of Vanilla and Powder. As always, made with 10% Shea butter...one of the best moisturizers in the world!"
Lavender - Silk Soap, I may be blind but I don't see this one on the website. This was a free sample and I love it. Its a very pure lavender scent and very enjoyable. Its description "This Lavender silk soap has a sweet, floral, herbaceous, fresh scent with a balsamic woody undertone. Scented with 100% pure therapeutic grade Lavender essential oil. All bars have a square of dried lavender flowers in the center."
Spiced Coffee Cake - Silk Soap, a very rich sweet scent. My husband doesn't care for it but I like it. Its not my go to but its so cute! Its description is "A rich coffee cake aroma with fragrant spices. Buttery top notes with nuances of jasmine. Sweet, juicy, floral mid notes with cinnamon. Well rounded finish with nutty, powder and vanilla notes at the base. This decadent silk cupcake is made with 16% Shea butter and drizzled with silk soap that looks like caramel."
Almond Latte - Silk Soap, I love this one because I am addicted to coffee and this smells like one of my favorites with is a iced coffee with Vanilla and Almond flavoring with a lowfat cream. As you can probably tell this one is much thinner than the others as this was the first one I used. It has bits of ground coffee in it so its perfect for exfoliating. I love this one. Its description is "Sweet, rich aroma of fresh almonds with light fruity undertones. Ground coffee beans make this a wonderful nutty exfoliating soap. Caffine gives this soap skin firming benefits. Made with 10% Shea butter."
Fairytale - Glycerin Soap, this one I was very excited about and it smells devine. This was the only one I could leave wrapped so he will be the last one I use, not because I don't want to use it. This is a very unique scent. The desciption on the website is perfect thought. Its description is "Gentle notes of orange pekoe tea, neroli, orange blossom, mandarin and a hint of bubblegum. Who doesn't love a pink shimmery soap that looks like it has gems embedded in it?"
A free sample I got was of Cuddles - Massage Bar, its a darling little heart that you can use to massage that special someone or they can massage you, or you can break off pieces and put it in your tub for an ultra moisturizing bath or use them on yourself fresh out of the shower and pat dry.
Cuddles smells like a mini bakery in a heart. I love it. I love anything that smells sweet or floral so this is perfect. Its description is "Love vanilla? If yes...you NEED this! A delicious aroma of sweet caramelized sugar and vanilla with rich buttercream. Smells like creme brulee...nom nom! Made with 50% Cocoa butter and 30% Shea butter!"
Next up I'm gonna try Goddess massage bar, it smells like heaven!!
