Upon opening this soap I was greeted with a kind of woodsy floral scent. It wasn’t overpowering at all. When using this soap you don’t have to worry about the scent lingering after. I’ve used this soap both foaming it up with my hands and with one of those scratchy long bath towels. It doesn’t lather up much using it with your hands, but with the bath towel and I imagine poofs, gloves, etc. it foams up a lot. Either way it works well for shaving. If you leave in the bath or shower and it’s constantly wet, it will like most soaps dissolve into nothingness. I highly recommend this shaving soap. It’s wonderful. Previously I was using Black Magic for shaving soap(which also works well), this soap definitely works better as shaving soap.

Pink Slip Shaving soap is currently available online here at OHWTO.COM. For $5.95 you will receive a dark-pinish 4oz square bar. This soap came in a stiff cellophane bag sealed with a sticker stating what the product was and what company it was from. Then it was wrapped in saran wrap with the ingredient sticker. One bar should last around 2 months. This product is vegan.

Official description:Originally formulated as a gentle facial soap for more mature skin, skin which might not have appreciated Black Magic facial soap, Pink Slip was built on a different base and with different Essential Oils, for different needs. Then I tried it as a shaving soap and it was all over, heh. This stuff is AWESOME for shaving with.

Starting with an already-great vegan-friendly soap base, I added French pink clay, vitamin E, Chamomile, and a cheery blend of essential oils- Geranium Bourbon, Lemon, Peru Balsam, Frankincense, Lavener, Ylang Ylang, and Bergamot. The scent is not overpowering, and while as a perfume it might be more of a woman’s scent, as a soap it’s completely unisex.

The trick to getting the best performance out of this soap is a nylon bath pouf. You know the ones I’m talking about, I think we all have one in our showers, or have at some point. I’ve used my usual bristle brush, and washcloths, and even just my hands, all of which worked okay to varying degrees, but to really make the best lather, the bath pouf is superior. A rich, thick, pink (hence the name) and long-lasting lather comes out of those things when used with this soap that’ll put any commercial shaving foam to shame.

Ingredients: Coconut oil, palm oil, Safflower oil, Vegetable glycerin, Purified water, Sodium hydroxide, Sorbitol, Sorbitan oleate, Soybean protein, Wheat protein, Proprietary essential oil blend, French pink clay, Vitamin E, Chamomile.

 

 


Final thoughts, Would I purchase this again? Yes, yes I would. I love this soap. I like that the scent isn’t overpowering, I like that it feels like silk on wherever it is that you’re shaving. Since it lasts so long, the cost is so minimal it’s not even funny. Ahem for those who use it on the nether regions it does not irritate. Just saying… Anyways, you want this soap, you really do. Shoo, go on, go buy it! Shop description is spot on.

NOTE
With this soap I highly recommend some sort of soap holder so it can dry out between uses. I am a fan of wooden soap holders such as these They’re pretty cheap. I also recommend the razors from Dollar Shave Club. Husband and I get the $9 razors. BES t.t HING.EVER

Thanks to @BeccasOnTweeter and @karmicdreaming I learned how to make my own laundry soap and it’s freaking awesome! My clothes have never been so soft. They’re completely unscented, which Kai loves, I however will be ordering some fragrance oils that I can use for my laundry. I’m also going to be picking up about 6-12[1. a set for me and a set for everyone else. Kai doesn’t like smellies.] wool dryer balls to replace dryer sheets. They cut down on drying time and get rid of static AND you can add a drop or two of fragrance oil or essential oil to them to scent your laundry. You have no idea how happy I am! If my foot weren’t broken I would be jumping up and down giggling like a nut!

Which reminds me. I did indeed break my foot. One of the bones, I can’t remember if she said 2nd or 3rd from the left has a hairline fracture. She did say the x-ray dude said it looked like it was starting to knit/heal up. So yay. It still hurts like a mofo though. I also made a roast and veggies in the crockpot tonight. This week is crockpot meal week! In fact I feel like doing nothing but crockpot meals for all of autumn. Anyone have any yummy recipes? This week I’m doing the roast and veggies, meatloaf and pork chops in the crockpot. I shall also make garlic mashed potatoes to go with the pork chops.

I received my @OHWTO order today and omg the smellies! They are AMAZING. I loves them all. I also got my beautiful amazing magical black magic soap that is glycerin free. I cut that sucker up into 8 small pieces so it would last longer in the shower. I also got the 2oz. liquid version for Kai since he is acne prone, and the Rose Flower Balm that will hopefully help with hive breakouts and my awful rough feets. :( I also got smellies in Passiflora and Raspberry Ginger Ale, and samples in Fresh Snow[2. OMG!], Rose Lemonade[3. Also OMG!], Honey Blossom, and 3 sooooper seeeekrit smellies that smell divineeeeee. Now I shall leave you to drool over the yummyness above.

So uh this post is several months overdue, I kept forgetting about the draft. Oops. Anyways. This was my first order from One Hand Washes the Other(OHWTO). I ordered a sample of the Black Magic Soap which everyone has been raving about and three solid scents; Coven, Pink Lady and Frankincense & Mirth. I have to be honest here I ordered the soap knowing damn well it has glycerin in it, but wanted to try anyways. Unfortunately after the third use my face broke out in a rash and horrible hives. Poop stick. Fortunately Becca being the awesomely awesome person that she is made a glycerin free Black Magic Soap which I happened to get in the mail today and will be posting about later!

Onto the scents. I loved Pink Lady, liked Frankincense & Mirth and didn’t really like Coven. Coven smelled too much like sweet baked goods to me, while that’s not a bad scent, it’s not a scent I like all that much. My mom however loved the scent! Becca really goes the extra mile when it comes to packaging. You can tell she really cares about her customers and loves what she is doing. My solid scents came in a nice little organza bag, and the sample soap was wrapped up and inside a plastic baggie. Then there is the awesome little wax sealed envelope. I can’t tell you how much I LOVE that she uses wax seals on them. It makes me smile every time I think about it. On the front of the envelope is a neat little stamp.

I had to open the envelope very carefully because I didn’t want to destroy the awesome was seal(seriously I need some of these I want to send people stuff sealed with a wax stamp!). Inside was a couple of sample pods, a business card and my invoice with a hand written note. See? Freaking awesome! I can say there are a handful of companies who really put effort into their packaging like this, and Becca is one of the best. It’s not required but it’s so refreshing to see and it definitely puts a smile on your face! :d

Anyways onto the pictures! While I am sad the Black Magic Soap didn’t work, I kind of figured it wouldn’t, but am super happy that Becca took the initiative to make a soap formula that I can use! *gives giant squishie hugs to Becca*
