Since my very first Paintbox Soapworks purchase, my showering experience has become fun. I'll even go as far as to say thrilling and delightful. As a mother of two young boys, I don't have a lot of time to pamper myself like I used to. My daily shower is now my time. Why not enjoy it to the fullest?
My first Paintbox Soapworks purchase consisted of a "The Paintbox Luxury Glycerin Soap Sample Collection" as seen in the above picture, and a large bar of Luxury Glycerin Soap in the "Hoarfrost" scent.
And so the love story begins...
I love myself a good bar of soap. I've never been a fan of body washes. They always seem to leave a residue. I like the squeaky-clean feeling a bar of soap leaves, but it must have the perfect balance of "clean" and "non-drying". That's hard to find. The Hoarfrost soap had both peppermint and eucalyptus in the ingredients. Both do wonders for headaches, which is right up my alley. Normally, I shower in the morning, then feel the need to rinse off at night. After using this soap in the morning, I still felt fresh at bedtime. Does this sound like a commercial? Beyond happy with my Hoarfrost purchase, I couldn't wait to dive into the sample collection that had been calling my name...
Gingermilk? Warm and comforting.
Pants Relief Elixir? Stress-Reducing. Happy.
Walk in the Woods? Delightfully manly, and pretty at the same time.
Miss Ada? Ultimately Feminine.
Lavender Truffle? Don't even get me started. It was like bathing in deliciousness.
My descriptions of Paintbox Soapworks' products have nothing on the descriptions she uses in her listings. Really. Check them out. Strange as it sounds, I get excited for her to come out with new scents just so I can experience reading the descriptions.
We've all tried sugar scrubs, exfoliating scrubs, and whatever else our aunts gave us for Christmas and are still sitting, unused, on the bathroom shelf. This Sorbetto, I promise you, will rock your socks. You can take the lid off and hold the jar upside down and it will not drip. It is firm, but pliable. It is completely ungreasy and -get this- it gets slightly sudsy when applied to wet skin! The Sorbetto is worth every penny and more.
Since my last Paintbox Soapworks purchase, new scents have been released for the holidays. I'm headed to the Etsy shop right now to get my hands on them. The sample collections will make excellent stocking stuffers, and I'm getting dangerously close to being out of Sorbetto...
**Update: I purchased the "White Snow, Bright Snow" special edition Sorbetto since first posting. I may or may not be squealing in delight and anticipation.**
I rate this shop a ten out of ten.
The product quality is beyond-belief awesome. A serious must-try.
The seller is very friendly and accommodating. I picture her house guests wanting to stay an extra day.
The packaging was a nice surprise, very professional and giftable.
Fastest shipping I've experienced on Etsy so far.
The value is excellent. I'd pay double.
