    Is what my son said these looked like. He even stuck one to his nose and said they smelled kinda like brownies in the oven.

    I am surprised myself at how these smell. Like a buttery, chocolatey sweet dish.. And I cannot guess from where the soap got it once cooked.

    So back story, I had a packet of Skinfood from Love Raw in the UK that my mom never opened. It's meant to be mixed with food or blended in smoothies, and is quite a dark red powder. In water it looks like a dark strawberry shake.

    Ingredients are chia seeds, goji berry, rosehip, lucuma, acai berry, and camu camu powders. Cool right? It expired 3mos ago though haha and I only wish mama had eaten it coz it's all certified organic ingredients and not cheap lols

    But since it wasn't gonna be ingested anyway I said let's infuse it and soap with it. Whatever minimal color or benefit I'll get or not is fine. I used this olive oil as 50% of my total oils and was surprised when my raw batter looked kinda like my red sandalwood one.

    After cutting it's a nice brown the color of dark chocolate or, as my son said, brownies. The "confetti," which I admit I should have planned better, was shavings from my stormy soap from last week. Looks like a rebatch but it seriously isn't haha

    Funny that my confetti has a green tinge to it. In the other soap the green is extremely faint, almost tan and quite speckled but here it's quite noticeably green even in artificial light. I even thought I didn't use enough moringa when I didn't see green in the other soap, but here it is lol

    Thanks for reading!

    Thank you @lsg :)
    Thank you! But if you need convincing about confetti soap these are the ones you should be looking at:

    Recent one by KiwiMoose
    This really nice one by penelopejane
    And my favorite confetti soap from off site.

    I've seen most do a more or less even sized confetti shreds but I purposely made mine into small cubes, then some julienned, and the rest really tiny pieces with a cheese grater.. Just to see what that looks like lol

    I love these, Dawni, but I'm also upset that you confettied your gorgeous storm soaps!!! I hope you saved some of them. They really were lovely.

    Thanks Meena.. Don't be upset. All the soaps in the pics I posted are all accounted for lol

    I used a recycled slab mold and the liner was wonky so I made confetti out of all those uneven end pieces I cut off :)
