Soap shop

So its that time again for adding a little more cleanliness in your life. We all know you can never get enough soap. I'm always looking for new lines that have great smells and textures. Recently I was given the chance to review a new brand of homeopathic/organic/homemade soaps.

The Company Expressions based out of Moorehead North Dakota! The company owner Shelly. Sent me a sampler pack of the following scents.

Lavender Soap: palm & coconut oils, purified water, shea butter, lavender bud, fragrance
Cup-O-Joe Mocha Soap: palm & coconut oils, purified water, ground coffee beans, fragrance
Baby Bee Buttermilk Soap: palm & coconut oils, purified water, shea butter, fragrance, natural whitening agent
Watermelon Soap: palm & coconut oils, purified water, shea butter, fragrance
Sandalwood Soap: palm & coconut oils, purified water, ground cinnamon, fragrance
Unscented Soap: palm & coconut oils, purified water, goat's milk, shea butter

Lavender: This was one of the scents I was the most curious about because lavender can come some many different it all depends on the amount that is put in and what it is mixed with it. This one is up in the air for me because I'm not a huge lavender fan so I found it a bit overwhelming but if you do love this scent I think it would be very relaxing for someone else. Although something do I adore about this one is the flakes of lavender inside the soap. I think it gives it a beautiful nature look that if bought in full size form would look gorgeous on the side of your tub or you sink in a soap dish.

Cup-o-Joe: I was very surprised by this because we all know expresso or coffee smells can be something that is very overwhelming and using something that you tend to avoid. This is a pleasant scent though. It leans more towards a "clean chocolate scent" it gives you a bit of a wake up when you actually use it. Its refreshing to not be overwhelmed but to get that little zing of energy in a bar of soap.

Baby bee Buttermilk: The name says it all. It smells just like a baby shampoo, its perfect for someone who loves a light natural clean scent nothing over powering but its enough to give you a hit of fragrance so that you don't feel like you were washed over everything. Its perfect for going into spring/summer. The only thing better than this? Would be to have a little bit of a fresh linen scent to make it a little bit stronger and longer lasting but either way I do enjoy this scent very much.

Sandalwood: Ahhh...this is hands down my favorite scent of the bunch. The best scent for summer. It's smooth and fresh and clean its definitely the sexier of the scents, yes i said it. Especially since its one of the most used scents in the best fragrances. The only thing I wish that it was slightly stronger so the scent was more noticeable and it lasted longer. The coloring of the fragrance makes this soap a beautiful pink color that would look great in any bathroom and goes great with the girly scent, I personally can not wait to buy this one in full size.

Unscented: This pretty much speaks for itself its perfect for someone who either does not like scents or can't use fragrance but enjoy a good organic soap. I would suggest this just for having a soap that gets you clean but doesn't interfere with your skin or allergies.

Watermelon: This one is a great summer treat. The sweetness might seem overwhelming when you first open the package. but you'll come to find out that it fades into a smoother scent throughout the day as it melts with your skin and slowly fades away into the night. But because it is so light I would suggest wearing only things and not adding any other kinds of scents through out your day although I have found washing first with the unscented does make it a little more noticeable since it washes clean of everything leaving room for the watermelon to bring its own flare.

Disclaimer. These scents were sent to me for free to try, I do not know the pricing of these items. You can find all the information at
