I have to say, this is my favourite soap out of the samples which have been sent to me. It ticks all of the boxes: fragrant, tactile, user-friendly and socially responsible. I especially love Nina’s tactual embossing and engraving of bees in various poses of flight, and engraving of honeycomb. The hardest thing for me to do was to take the soap into the shower. You got a life-long friend there, Nina.
This beeswax soap has beautiful bees imprinted on one side, creating a 3D effect that my kids loved looking at. There are also flower petals in the soap which gives it texture. The soap lathered beautifully and my skin felt nourished after using this soap. It also smells amazing!
Decorated with buzzing bees over honeycomb and with calendula petals throughout, this luxuriously moisturising soap smells like a flowering garden. With carefully chosen oils, butters and honey from the makers own bees, it leaves my skin soft and hydrated. What a divine product! Highly recommended.
Where do I start?! The soap in itself is a work of art with incredible embossing of bees on top and petals embedded in the bottom. The soap has a really beautiful aroma and works into a soft, gentle lather that cleaned my skin while leaving my skin nourished and hydrated.
I am head over heels for this soap: I love that it’s been lovingly handcrafted at an apiary in the Blue Mountains and imprinted with the shapes of bees. I also love that it contains organic oils and butters, beeswax, honey and petals of local flowers. It’s really gentle and moisturising, easy to lather up and leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated.
