Bloomin Belly Soaps, Part One

Part One of a series

Bloomin' Belly Soaps was kind enough to send me some samples to review a few weeks ago. I just finished a three day stint with the Niaouli and Lime with Walnut Husk Exfoliant. The sample I got is a puzzle shape, not the belly shape they seem to be known for:

What I liked:
  • The scent was really mild. For a pregnant lady with a sensitive nose, this was important.
  • The natural ingredients. Acccording to their website, this soap only contains shea butter, essential oils, and walnut husk. I dig that.
  • The shape of the soap took some getting used to, but once I got the hang of it, I liked the puzzle shape. It made it easier to hold on to when it got wet and slippery.
  • I have a severe acne outbreak on my back and, it's hard to say for sure since it's only been a few days, it seems to be clearing that up.

What I didn't like:

  • I only used this soap for three days so I may be mistaken, but it seems that the exfoliant is only on the outside of the soap. So, once you use it for a few days, there's no walnut husk left.
  • When I rinsed my skin, instead of my hand sliding nicely down my arm, it slid down in fits and starts, like all the moisture was gone from my skin. I will say, however, that when my skin dried, it didn't feel dry or itchy at all so it could just be the nature of the soap.

So far, I like this soap and am excited about trying the next one. They sent me a whole bunch of goodies to try out for you!
