Heres just a few recent soaps that I made! The first one is inspired by my favourite rainbow ice cream, I used the same colours as the ice cream. Im not sure why the yellow looks a little bit like cracked earth? Its scented with Love Spell.


Lime coconut soap, its the first time I did layers and the green mica ontop is a little bit of a fail... I guess I could just wipe it off.

Oatmeal milk and honey with some added oatmeal. Its got yummy shea butter in it!

And finally awesome musk lolly flavoured striped lipbalm that I made with my bff! Smells delicious! Just like the real thing!

What do you mean about fail with the lime one? I don't understand...

I think they all look amazing, particularly the swirl one at the top. I would love to have that in my bathroom!

Oh I just meant that I tried to put green mica on top to look pretty but it doesn't... I faced the tops away in the pic Smiley

Very pretty! In the "cracked earth" one did you have any titanium dioxide? I get that look sometimes with TD. Still looks awesome though!

sometimes when i'm adding different layers and one hasn't set just enough the other comes though and that cracked look happens??? maybe that's what caused it... they all look great though

I did use titanium dioxide... I thought that maybe I used too much water to mix it with. Its good to know Im not the only one with "cracked earth" soap! hehe

Thanks for the nice comments all!
