I haven't made much soap this month so felt the need to 'catch up' since I'm on vacation this week. Tested out a new Lush dupe of Avobath from FragranceBuddy which behaved very well . . . just hope it sticks around during cure.

Love the colors and swirls. Please give an update of how the fo is holding
I'll keep you guys posted. So far all I can say is it's an ash-monster and my swirls on top have all but disappeared :(

Very pretty! Avobath was my first purchase from Lush. I've yet to purchase an FO dupe. Id love to know if this one works out!

So if a soap develops ash it's a function of the FO?
It's not always the FO but in certain cases that's all I can blame it on. Some folks have good luck spritzing the tops with rubbing alcohol which I did for this batch. Others say covering the top and cutting off the air supply helps reduce ash. I did both and still got ashy tops so go figure! I always get ash on my salt bars no matter what FO so it could be environmental conditions too.

Very pretty soaps. FB's Avobath sticks very well. Smells better than plain lemongrass.
