Don't be a soap licker

Hey all, it's been a while since we've done a Bath and Beauty Challenge! What kind of challenge would you like to see? The last three we did were Eco-Friendly/All-Natural, Unusual Ingredient, and Intensely Colorful. One of my ideas is body art, which could be a pretty broad category--henna, face or body painting, nail art, hairdos, maybe we could make it a bit more specific with a color or theme. Or something else altogether! List your ideas here and I'll start a poll soon! Other ideas from a past poll that ultimately weren't chosen are also listed below.

Possible Theme Ideas:

Body Art
Products for Men
Realistic--your "blank" looks like "blank"
Kid Oriented
Knock Off/Inspired by "blank"
Unique and Fabulous Packaging/Labeling
One Word


and some more ideas/further explanation:


 I would like it to be as inclusive as possible, but that may be a little hard for a board with such variety. Here's a couple I was kinda mulling over:

*A Packaging challenge. How do you package your soap, bath bombs, make-up, perfume, etc?


*A color challenge, use any method to show off your favorite, or maybe a specific color (hair color, mineral make-up, swirled soap, lip gloss)


*A word challenge, throw out a word and see how it is interpreted in various forms (creamy, bronzed, asymetrical, other fun word)

*A "realistic" challenge, I'm sure you've all seen the steak soap on here! Soap that really looks like something else.

Please weigh in with your ideas, or if you particularly love/hate any of these.

Love you idea, Smitten.

I remember that as youngsters, we were asked to listen to a music piece, and paint with that inspiration.

So in the same interdisciplinary mode, how about something inspired by a work of art?

Say.... Van gogh Starry night, to mention something very famous?

Very cool! We did have that as a theme on a poll a while back! We have finished voting for this round (Autumn won!) but I will definitely put that idea on the next poll, love it!
