For easter Germans (& Swiss as well) buy cute little bunnies made from chocolate. This is one of those cuties who managed to survive the last couple of days:

One can notice that this cute little fella is sitting in a plastic tray. These trays are used by supermarkets and carriers to transport & display the chocolate bunnies. Afterwards they are thrown away. What a waste, because they do make excellent moulds for all sorts of bath  & beauty products.

Filled tray.

Filled tray (back).

Finished product.

As its nearly May and the days are getting warmer and warmer I wanted to create a summer-y product, something that one can use after a day out in the sun. It should moisturise dry "after sun" skin, make it soft & smooth, be refreshing & calming and should leave a tiny sparkle on the skin - perfect for those "hot" summer nights. Because in Germany milk products are traditionally used for sunburns I put milk & joghurt powder in it. It contains loads of shea butter & almond oil which are great for the skin. I also added some Vit E for additional goodness and some shimmery green mica. I added Lavender & Mint essential Oils for a cooling feeling on the skin.

That is such a great idea!  The soaps look so nice from that mold.

And I am utterly jealous of you - a whole TRAY of Lindt bunnies?

I finally have a wist!

Oooh, nice color and scent combo.  And I think the bars are very attractive!  Hopefully you get more than one use out of the mold because they look awesome!
