    My soap has a big crack!

    This is my 1st batch in weeks and I've completely lost what little soaping mojo I ever had. By the looks of it I should have waited longer to make soap again. I tried to push the crack of doom back together like a git and of course it bounced back, even though it was super soft . Duh. I went...

    My sister thought she was a dog

    Apparently. I gave her one of my neem and avocado doggy soaps I made to try on her dog Rass. Now, before anyone asks, the soaps are stamped with a dog paw. Hard to miss. I did tell her that the ingredients are a bit lush for pooches but they were made for sensitive dogs and I was playing...

    Weird things on the INCI list

    I know people's ideas of what's weird and what isn't can be highly subjective. I probably find some of these things weirder than others do but I can't place them in cosmetics. By that, I mean I don't want to place them in my cosmetics. So, I was flipping through the INCI list. I hit the...

    Dodgy soap muppet v me ( I lose)

    Turns out I'm a wuss. Here's why. Lady on Sunday had a goats milk soap stall at the markets. Told me the soaps will keep shrinking because they are still fresh and going through a process called saponification. Woah, wait. You're selling fresh, raw caustic soap? Obviously she wasn't but if...

    Soap photo shame fest

    I accidently took a rude soap photo and posted it on fb. There it was in all it's glory for my friends and family to see. My Mum, Dad, Aunty, Sister, ok you get the drill. OMG my kids 3rd grade teacher saw it :oops:. It was a shot of some soap made for my Mum. I didn't look at the...

    Pain relief/arthritis cream copy

    My sister asked me if I could try and replicate a cream that's popular here in Oz for pain relief and arthritis called Painaway. I figured why not? At the very least we'd have a lovely moisturizing cream. She uses copious amounts of the goop and at around $20 for 70grams she wanted a...

    Column swirl/embeds for the kids

    Ok so I might have gone over board playing around with my new brites for CP colours that I just got to play with. Bit too much on the colour? I think they look a little busy personally. My kids don't seem to mind. My youngest wants to eat them. She thinks my other soaps look a little dull...

    Soapy beer moustache

    I had left over beer soap batter which I poured into a silicon BB mould. Just sliced it up and remembered I had a moustache craft stamp. Why not I says? Bwhahaha one even has a hole mole. Cindy Crawford mo bar.

    I tested my soap on animals

    I did test them on me first, for a whole week. Loved them, which is weird cause I made them for dogs. Eventually they had to be tried on a guinea-dog. Now, I was confident about the soap or I wouldn't have used it on them. Still felt a bit wrong though but what alternative is there? Lab testing...

    This, that and the other soaps

    Just posting em all together. Bunch of salties (thanks Obsidian for the salt soap obsession now spreading around my family and friends). The others 2 are me playing around. Ok the salties- Green - Sea salt with Cedarwood, tea tree and lemongrass EOs and spirulina and seaweed. Blue - Sea salt...

    Hide me from my In-Laws

    Help! Help! I'm being repressed! I've lost control of the TV remote. My every calorie is being counted. The house has been inspected (I fail by default). I was given 23 soaps as a gift when they arrived :confused:. Seriously :Kitten Love:. Is it a hint that my soaps suck? Are they examples of what...

    Hubby scored me a curing rack!

    I'm a bit excited and have to share. I've had my soaps all over the garage, lounge room, dining room and kitchen curing. Not the best look. Bargain Hunter Hubby scored this rack for me for $90 from an ad in the paper. It had no shelves so he had some cut at the local hardware store which I then...

    Saké mistaké

    Not sure where I meant wrong on this one :confused:. I made 2 batches at the same time with sake as the water replacement. Mixed up the main batch, all was good, then split it into 2 bowls ready. I noticed when I was pouring it that the batter was bubbling a bit, kind of popping. The 1st bowl...

    My wine soap is a dud

    Finally tested my merlot wine soap tonight. Smells fantastic (BB berry wine FO), but not even a pretence at lather. It was just weird. I used the big 3 oils (olive, palm and coconut) and soap calc tells me it should be lovely and bubbly. So I can only guess it's either the merlot or the...

    Shaving soap and the bearded lady

    Ok let me explain. I've been planning a shaving soap for ages. I've driven myself fair up the wall trying to pick if I should CP or HP it and what to add blah blah. Anyhoo, with shaving soap thoughts still obviously rolling around in my head, I went to bed and had a dream. In the dream I...

    My Mother-in-Law went to markets...

    Sounds like the start of a bad joke. Anyway, she saw a handmade soap stall and went to go have a look. She said the soaps were beautiful, but were unwrapped and unlabelled. After picking a couple she liked she asked the lady what ingredients were in the soap. The answer was "I can't tell you...

    Rhino hide and soap testing

    I think I'm more covered in rhino hide than human skin. I make a soap or buy one and use it and my skin is "Oooooo that's lovely". This is using it on my face included. I can use any soap I make on my face. I can get a cheapy from the supermarket. I mean 4 for $2 stuff. Yep. All good. I change...

    1st try at a tiger stripe

    Had to try after admiring everyone's tiger stripes all this time. I've done a modified dandelion zebra stripe but for some reason never a tiger. *The tiger bit me by the way. I was using the spatula to scrape the bowl and pushed too hard near the bowls edge, it flicked, I wore a bit of batter...

    Lava Dragons Blood thingo

    I tried for a lava flow on this one basically. I threw some volcanic ash, activated charcoal and red reef clay in a frenzied mess and crossed my fingers. BB dragons blood scent for extra volcanic glory. It's all very dark and broody. I might go put on some extra black eyeliner. *The mess in the...

    I think I made cheese....

    It all started with that thread about yogurt in soaps. Sounded good. So I made some honey yogurt soap. I used my BB silicone mould for the 1st time (new toy) and as suggested, added sodium lactate to my recipe, which I've never bothered with before. Well, I swear it feels exactly like cheap...
