The Soap Shop

Since moving into our new house I have become obsessed with having baths! I love propping up my iPhone on the towel rack, putting on some YouTube or Netflix and having a good old soak! (Yes I am a wild 26 year old lol)
Ive tried a few new things from my local soap shop since I last blogged about it and thought I would share my finds..  

 Lemon and Lime Bath Melts

Lemon Oil, Lime Oil and Calendula have been blended with Cocoa Butter and Sweet Almond Oil in our most nourishing Bath Melt yet. Cut a bar in half, or use it whole, drop into your tub and let the moisturising power of this melt transform your skin.

This has become my favourite bath melt of all time. It smells delicious and is absolutely fantastic if you suffer from dry skin. 
I can honestly say I like this better then any Lush melt Ive tried (and thats saying something!) 
For £1.50 I recommend you try this too!

Coconut Body Butter

Pure Coconut Oil, Almond Oil and non greasy Shea all mean this Body Butter is perfect for use head to toe whenever your skin needs moisture.
Great when used on hands, feet, knees and elbows too!
Our Body Butter has a thick creamy texture and melts into your skin on contact. A little goes a very long way! Perfect when used after the bath or shower to soothe dry skin in need of moisture. 

I am a massive fan of the Body Shop Body Butters so I was really excited to try this. I have to say I think its fantastic! 

It has a thick creamy consistency but is slightly oiler then normal body butters. With most butters I feel like they leave my skin moisturised for an hour or two which is great but this leaves my skin feeling moisturised all day long.  
With some body butters when you apply them they just sit on your skin, this sinks straight into your skin making you feel instantly nourished!

Also the smell.. seriously amazing! I've had a few people comment about my 'lovely perfume' that I'm wearing when Ive had nothing on but this.
This is another product I highly recommend checking out. 

Sugar Scrubs

 Vanilla & Coffee Bean Solid Sugar Scrub is an exfoliating luxury scrubby bar for those 'bits' that make you frown! 
Take one into the bath or shower and rub it onto the areas you want to scrub!
A little Coca Butter will melt and leave you with a scrubby sugar mixture on your skin. Smells like a delicious Vanilla Cupcake with a hint of Coffee! Paraben Free.

These sugar scrubs are excellent. They get rid dry skin while leaving you feeling moisturised. You get a huge block of it for £4.00 too what a bargain!


I talked about The Soap Shop on a a post a few weeks ago and had a few emails from people wanting to know if they would ship abroad. 
I talked to Faye who owns the shop and can confirm they ship internationally. The website is if you would like to order anything pop across an email to them and they will let you know how much the P&P will be.

    I love Lush's Ickle Baby Bot - have used it since I was little, and it reminds me of childhood and going to bed all clean - even though the changed the name and the shape since then! I also love their Titsy Totsy bath bomb as it feel so luxurious to have rose petals floating around the bath.
