I am very excited about this great company! They have the most delicous product offerings around. Soapier has a variety of bath and body products to delight just about anybody.

The box of goodies I received had the most scrumptious Oatmeal, Milk and Honey Sugar Scrub in it. Now, you have all heard me say how much I LOVE a good scrub, but don’t like the oiliness of some that are on the market. This scrub has just the right amount of oil sugar ratio. Not too greasy but moisturizing. Thick but not so much that you can’t scoop it out easily. And this scent? O.M.G. This is probably one of the better OMH scents I have ever smelled, and friends, I have sniffed a lot of them over the last 10 years. The jar is HUGE too, 16 oz to be exact. I was shocked when I saw it (pleasantly so).

Next up I delved right into their Luscious Body Lotion. I am a lotion addict so, this was actually the first thing I slathered on as soon as I opened the box. The scent is coconut, mango & papaya and it is really nice. It is a perfect summer scent. I was afraid the mango papaya would over power the coconut, but that is not the case, it is perfectly balanced. It almost smells like some of those expensive tanning lotions without any fake notes to it. The texture is thick but not so much that it doesn’t come out of the bottle. Speaking of bottles, their packaging is VERY professional. I love the lotion bottles they are shaped like a smaller version of a wine bottle.

The only slight disappointment was the fact that they use excess packaging in the form of shrink wrap on the outside of the bottles and jars. I understand why they do it, especially in the summer months, so I won’t knock it too much. Though I thought that it took away from the look of the snappy packaging underneath.

Next come the soaps, I had help from Jaded reviewing two of the bars, I will include her notes here after mine. Of course like the magpie wanna be that I am, I took the brightest bars of the bunch! Orange A Peel and Lush Fruits. The orange scent is very bold and true to the real fruit. Lush Fruits is more tropical goodness with a mango papaya twist. The bars are a vary generous 5 oz and are little works of art as you can see from the picture. They are glycerin based which I love, because they leave a nice clean feel and a great lather and are not drying.

Jaded’s Review: I cut a slice of the “Lavished in Chocolate” soap by Soapier.com to try this morning. I cannot remember the last time I used a glycerin soap, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. The soap was sitting in our bathroom, and our entire room smelled of a rich, dark godiva chocolate. The aroma is decadent…..however, that was my first hesitation. I wasn’t sure I wanted to smell like chocolate all day. I started the shower and tried to lather up. I was pleasantly surprised by the smooth and soft application of bar to skin and the lather was fluffy and light. The scent travelled well in the shower but wasn’t overwhelming. I liked the soap so well, I did something I never do…..I applied it to my face. I almost never put anything but my preferred facewash on my face. I was surprised at how great it felt!

After the shower I felt squeaky clean. The scent of chocolate blended with my own natural scent to create a scent that was no longer so chocolatey and very pleasant. Several hours later, I am still pleased with the light scent and the feel of my skin. I feel clean yet soft and moisturized at the same time. I would give this soap 4 stars. Oatmeal, Milk and Honey is the other bar I am reviewing. A wonderful, light-scented glycerin soap that makes gives you that squeaky clean feeling in the shower. Later in the day, I noticed that my skin still felt soft and silky. The oatmeal is a nice exfoliator while the milk and honey soothe and moisturize. I’ve been using it for a week and really noticed a difference in my skin.

All in all both Jaded and I agree that Soapier is definitely on our places to shop from now on! Be sure to sign up for our newsletter to read follow up product reviews of this and other great companies in the future.
