Guys....it's officially fall. Not that that means anything in TN because it's still 90 degrees but, whatever. Anywho, we're full throttle in pumpkin spice everything, cinnamon, caramel apples, pumpkins, Hocus Pocus, wearing fall fashion that it's too dang hot for right now, etc. (I was just trying to keep that going as long as I could with fall examples lol) Anyway, I have several new hauls to talk about but we're starting with the biggest one first which is new bath products, majority wise "fall" bath products. All products are from small "indie" brands, which are my favorite. These were all purchased by me over the last month or so.
I tried to get more variety of products this time. In saying that though, I kinda stayed away from products I know that I don't use that much or care for as opposed to other things. For instance you won't see very much in regards to bath bombs. I prefer bubble bars all day long rather than bath bombs. I did try new some new shower gels and got into shower jellies! I'm very excited about that.
So the companies I'm going to be talking about are: Country Market Crafts, Lavish Bath Co, Kaleidosoaps, and Confectionery Soaps Co. Also, one product from Candy Panda Wax that I got in the summer, so that's not fall themed but I'm still going to talk about it. I love to watch people chop up bubble bars/make "bath cocktails" on Instagram and that's honestly how I got introduced to every company that I try. Check out the hashtags on Instagram for some incredible bath products to try, like: #bubblebar , #wethebathers , #bathcocktail , etc.
So let's start with Country Market Crafts which is what I have the most from. I have several of their products in general, they're also a best seller on Etsy. They have a nice range of products aside from just bath products.
So here's what I picked up:
Most of their products are Vegan, I believe all the products I talked about are Vegan. If you spend $35 your shipping is free. They ship from Canada. I live in TN and these get to me usually in 2 business days. I buy these, nothing is sent to me. They do give me really cute samples of bath bombs in powder/dust form and I enjoy those little bags much more than actual bath bombs.
Next up is another Canadian company. Lavish Bath Co. These are quite heavy and they're super soft to cut. You can press into them actually that's how soft they are. They don't really melt or like a bubble dough can, they're thick, heavy, soft in texture, etc. HEAVY in fragrance always, they also sent me a free bath bomb with my purchase along with their green apple soap which is gorgeous. If you like bath bombs then I think you'll love theirs.
You can spend $35 and get free shipping. They have a really nice collection of bubble bars. I buy off of Etsy usually but they have a website as well. These also ship pretty fast.
Next up is Confectionery Soaps Co. This is a new brand for me. I got in on a sale when they first released their fall products so it was a great time to pick up some bubble bars. These are very unique, I have a whole folder saved on Instagram of people chopping up their bubble bars because they're so massive. I mean huge. They also have some really vibrant colors. They do a lot of similar scents to LUSH as well. They have tons of glitter on some of them. They're pretty strong in fragrance as well. They also sent me some candy....bonus points. BONUS POINTS. I love some Tootsie Roll Pops. They ship from Maryland.
They sent me some samples of a scrub and they scent a smaller sized bubble bar in Wicked, which was super spicy in fragrance. It was easily enough for 2 baths. "Serendipity" is permanent for the time being, while the other two are just fall releases. They're very generous with their products. They even offer a bubble bar that is just plain and has no fragrance, glitter, or mica. I think that is so cool and I want to pick that up next because sometimes I need more bubbles for my cocktail that isn't going to mess up my scents. Buying a fragrance free bubble bar would make other products last longer within a cocktail. I absolutely DIG that they thought of this. Cause I was tired of buying the "milk" bubble bar from LUSH to mix in with my baths.
They have some neat food looking ones like cinnamon buns, tarts, etc. The bubble bars are heavy but they crumble up nicely. So they're packed tightly but once you chop them they aren't hard to dissolve under running water. I use a strainer/sieve for my bubble bars or bath cocktails I've put together. I like it better than breaking it apart with your hands under the running water.
I have recently gotten acquainted with Kaleidosoaps. They have JELLIES! I have 5 of those Jellies, 1 bubble bar, and 1 shower gel. They also send cute little samples as well. They offer After Pay which I love.
My first order was a mix of a few things.
My latest purchases from them were only jellies.
Their shower jellies work amazingly well. I slice a little off the top to chop up and put the rest back into the container. A little goes a long way. I'm glad they were my first experience with shower jellies. They're usually around $12 and you get a nice container of 8.4 oz. They're "vegan, seaweed based soap" and they use "Carrageenan Seaweed to soften the skin".
Lastly, earlier in the summer I picked up a whipped soap from Candy Panda Wax. You really have to be on your toes with this company. They have "restock days" where that's the only time you can order products and then they take them back off the website and work on shipping orders. I've never seen so many scents in my life. I wanted something really bright and tye-dye looking, so I went with "Fake Bake" which basically smells like suntan lotion from when you were a teenager. I LOVE the scent. It goes perfect with my watermelon and tropical bubble bars. It feels like you're at a beach and I love that. The texture is very soft, unlike any other whipped soap I've tried. I think their next restock is the 10th. They don't just have whipped soaps, they also have scrubs, shower gels, etc.
So that's it. That is everything I've gotten recently. Yes I know it's a lot but I just really enjoy it. It's a nice way to kick off fall for me.
I'm from Tennessee. I'm a makeup and skincare lover. I have always enjoyed creating looks but I love to help people with product knowledge and application even more. I've been able to start blogging and do these things I love because God has seen fit to bless me with the opportunity. Thanks for stopping by and visiting with me!
