I’ve teamed up with Wholesale Supplies Plus again for another fantastic freebie. Last month I made some cranberry body butter and lip scrub and this month I thought I’d give one of their top selling kits a try. The oatmeal scrubby soap kit is amazing. I can totally understand why it’s a top seller. Leaving a bar in my bathroom makes it smell absolutely heavenly. I literally catch myself sniffing the soap every time I’m in the bathroom. I really wish someone could come up with a “sniff” app. Seriously smells sooooooo good.
Alright, alright. I’m sure you’ve had enough of me talking about sniffing soap. Let’s talk about the soap making process, shall we? These are the goodies that came with the Oatmeal Scrubby Soap kit.
I especially love that Wholesale Supplies Plus gives you details on their kits, ingredients and recipes online. Amazing, right?!
The Oatmeal Scrubby Soap kit comes with “Melt & Pour” soap that’s as simple to use as it sounds. Simply melt and pour. Idiot proof. I chopped up 1lb of soap into small cubes and tossed them in the double broiler. You can totally do this in the microwave. I’m just the weirdo without one. The cubes were completely melted in a matter of minutes.
I added the oatmeal, milk and honey fragrance oil into the melted soap. Then added some chopped up oats. You have to make sure the mixture is still very hot when you add the oats. Otherwise the bits of oats become suspended and you won’t end up with that scrubby oatmeal layer.
Then I poured the soap “batter” into the silicone mold. I was doing pretty well. Then the little guy decided to ram me with his walker at full speed. Oops!
I let the soap set for about 3 hours before it was room temperature. I sniffed. Took pictures. Sniffed some more.
Even the packaging that’s included is flippin cute. I attempted sniffing through the cello bags…. I may have a problem. An oatmeal soap sniffing problem.
I’m not huge into soaps when it comes to the shower. I buy the usual fragrance free stuff because I’m boring like that. I also don’t have a lot of time to sniff soaps in store aisles with a toddler and baby in tow. Plus, I’m pretty sure my daughter would just squeeze a body wash bottle in my face if she saw me trying to smell it. Thankfully, the boring soap habit has been broken by this Oatmeal Scrubby Soap. I almost don’t want to share.
I said ALMOST. I love you too much not to share this amazingness with you. This giveaway is limited to US residents only, but I highly encourage you APO/FPO peeps to enter and have family mail it to you.
I know I smell awesome and my skin is super soft now, but please try to contain your excitement. Petting and sniffing in public will put you into creeper status. Get yourself a kit if you really can’t wait to see if you won and please sniff in moderation.
**What up FTC!?! I was not monetarily compensated for this post or for positive feedback. I was given a kit to review. Any opinions expressed are my own and I can honestly say I want to sniff this soap all day.**
