SUPERFICIALLY COLORFUL Soap and Mani Bomb : Review

Hi there, my darlings! So, I think I've already mentioned how much I adore Jin of Superficially Colorful  and we both try to touch base just to chit chat every once in awhile. It was during one of these chat sessions that Jin told me of her plans to expand into bath and body care, starting with soap. Now if you've been following along with me, you already know what my reaction was--utter excitement! And sure enough, there was a sample of one of her new soaps in my last package from her!

Jin sent me the Turmeric and French Clay soap :

This soap is made with freshly ground Turmeric root and green French Clay. The French Clay is known for its cleansing and purifying properties. It helps regenerating your skin by removing the dead cells and draw impurities and toxins out.

The Turmeric has natural antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that help cleansing and healing your skin, leaving it soft, well balanced and smooth.
Together they create a powerful yet gentle combination of cleaning and purifying soap.

A combination of green scents with Citronella, Lemongrass, basil and salty mist complete the cleaning feel.

Ingredients List:
Distilled Water, Olive Oil, Palm Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Castor Oil, Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil, Cocoa Butter, Sodium Hydroxide, Turmeric, French Clay, Vitamin E, Body Safe Mica, Essential Oils, Fragrance Oils.

Vegan Friendly – Does not contain animal products or animal by-products.

IMPRESSIONS : I have to say I'm a little afraid to admit to how much I liked this soap--I can hear countless "I told you so"s from countless Indian aunties. Turmeric, much like coconut oil, is one of those jack-of-all-trades ingredients in most Indian women's arsenal of home beauty recipes. Turmeric is supposed to brighten the skin tone and clear your complexion--in fact, there's an entire ritual using turmeric for a new bride-to-be on the eve of her wedding. Now that's a story for another time.

Now, most of you must know by now that I prefer floral scents to earthier scents--lemongrass, etc usually is not my cup of tea. But the scent is actually not overpowering with this soap--as Jin pointed out, all you'll really smell is clean.

Vegan-friendly and with the ingredients listed clearly on her site, this is a product you can use with complete peace of mind--you know exactly what you're getting. And if you're wondering why you should buy bath and body products all the way from Israel, I'll just say it's for the exact same reason I bought bunches of soaps when I was in Turkey or why I load up on skincare when I'm in India--the availability of ingredients in European and Asian countries is much different than here in the United States. It's a completely different, completely novel experience!

Jin also sent me a Pumpkin and Spices mani bomb :

These mani fizzes are scented with a delicious pumpkin spice scent. 

My bombs and fizzies are hand-made, loaded with Cocoa Butter, Jojoba Oil and rich Avocado Oil, to add moisture and softness to your hands and cuticle areas.

Every bomb and every fizzie is made separately, which may cause every one to look a little bit different than the others.

Freshly ground spices, herbs or flowers are added to each bomb, to magnify the scent and add that little extra to the looks and feel of the bombs.

Every mani bomb is in-fact a smaller version of a bath bomb and you can certainly switch between them!

How to use: For a mani soak, simply fill a bawl with lukewarm water, drop the fizzie into the water and let fizz for a few seconds. Then soak your hands (or feet) for about 10 minutes. Than rub your hands together to let the oils and butter soak into your skin. Rinse lightly and dry your hands.

For a lush bath, fill your bath tub with warm water, drop a fizzie into the water and let it fizz for few seconds. Enter the tub, lay back and close your eyes. Breath deeply and enjoy.

After your soak it is recommended to rub your skin and let it absorb the oils and butters, rinse lightly and wipe your skin with a light towel.

Ingredients List:
Distilled Water, Jojoba Oil, Avocado Oil, Cocoa Butter, Cinnamon powder, Baking Soda, Citric Acid, Cream of Tartar, Body safe mica, Hamamelis Virginiana extract, Fragrance Oil.

Vegan Friendly – Does not contain animal products or animal by-products.

IMPRESSIONS : If I've said it once, I've said it a bunch of times--pumpkin spice? Don't really see the big deal with it. While everyone is going ga-ga over all the pumpkin spice lattes and candles and whatnot, I'm over here going meh. But this mani bomb smells GOOD. It's warm and fragrant and reminds me of home!

I love that it contains both Jojoba and Cocoa butter--both have done wonders for my skin in the past. With just one use, I loved how soft and moisturized it left my skin feeling. Now, this is a MASSIVE mani bomb and I can get at least 4-5 uses out of just one so next project--foot soak!

So there you have it, my darlings! Superficially Colorful's Soaps are available in an interesting variety--grab you favorites HERE for $4.50 each!

Only the OOPS version of her mani bombs ar still available--go get one HERE.
