Bubbles, bubbles everywhere! Bodycare Luxuries {& Giveaway}

I just received a handmade soap sampler set from Bodycare Luxuries and I have to tell you, I'm loving her soap!

The soap is made from all natural ingredients and contains no parabens, no SLS or harsh chemicals - which I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!  AND they're all handmade with love =).

This is the sampler set I got:
Green Apple
Oatmeal, Milk & Honey
Eucalyptus & Peppermint
Almond Milk

It came nicely packaged in a padded envelope with very cute, professional looking wrapping.  I'm happy to say that considering it came all the way from the UK, it arrived perfectly.  No cracks and all the pieces came as they were supposed to.

You could even smell the scents from outside the envelopes.  
I was pleasantly surprised as the smell was not overly strong - definitely a good thing.

They also came with a little tag that includes all the ingredients, which is perfect for people with allergies.

I also love that they all came labelled so I knew exactly which ones were which.

All the soaps smelled quite good and the scent was not strong or overpowering or perfume-like, which I really liked.  I don't know about you, but I hate smells that are overly strong or overpowering, so these soaps were PERFECT for me!  They were also very natural smelling.

Green Apple - there was a light, pleasant smell, but it was packaged next to the almond milk, which I think diluted the green apple smell, because it didn't quite smell like apple but more like Almond =)
Oatmeal Milk & Honey - this was a light, pleasant Milk and Honey smelling soap
Rose - a very pleasant, light, rose smell - I think this one was my favorite.  It really smelled like roses and you can see little bits of them in the soap
Lavender - this was also a light, pleasant lavender smell.
Eucalyptus & Peppermint - this one smelled the strongest, but was not overpowering.  It had a nice, refreshing minty smell
Almond Milk - this one was very close to non-scented, but had a nice almond scent to it

Actual Use TEST
The soap was a pleasant surprise!
It lathered very quickly and felt good - I didn't expect this since most soaps without SLS do not lather very well.  That was GREAT!
There was no residue on my skin and it was non-drying
After drying, my skin felt moisturized and had a light, pleasant smell

I think these would make the perfect gift for someone who has everything already!  The scents were pleasant, light and the soaps lathered quickly and left my skin moisturized.  It was wonderful!  Plus, it's from the UK!  How cool is that?!
