Hey Love Buds! I'm back with a new #MashupMonday for you! This one features +DANDI CREATIONS' Ice Tea Twist Brine Soap and Prickled Pear Whipped Body Cream featured in the September +Handmade Cartel box.
I purchased several soaps from Dandi Creations and they came packaged in such a cheerful box! Finally I had the heart to open one of the bars of soap. I have been using the lip balm and it is a great lip butter that coats well and isn't too shiny - great for how dry my lips get in the colder months.
I will say that I was slightly disappointed in the color of the bar. The decorative lemon wedge and ice cubes were adorable, but the soap itself was a light chalky grey color - however it was extremely firm. The fragrance was barely discernible, even after lathering the bar vigorously. I was really expecting that sweet lemony tea aroma I have experienced with similarly scented products. I will also say that it did not lather very much. However my skin felt clean and soft after using the bar.
I then moisturized with the prickled pear whipped body cream from Handmade Cartel. I really love the fragrance, it is a tangy, fruity scent with a unique freshness. This cream, though very moisturizing, I would consider to be more of a lotion and not a whipped body cream. The consistency is loose enough to be dispensed from a bottle. Even with its lotion-like consistency, the cream penetrated my skin quickly with no greasiness, leaving my skin feeling and smelling great! I still have a few other soaps to try from this company so I reserve final judgement until I try some of their other soaps.
