Faith, Soaps & Love {review}

Good afternoon ladies!
Today we have a review from Faith, Soaps & Love. And as the title suggests, this review is all about...SOAP! Wonderfully delicious,  homemade soap.
I have to say that I knew I'd love this business from the moment I first browsed the Etsy store.
The variety of soap scents/styles available, combined with the fact that the store owner professes to be Christian with her use of Bible verses on the soap labels, made me instantly want to do a review with FS&L.
So I was delighted when Tracy agreed and sent me a few of her items.
She sent a both a Midnight Pomegranate and Dragon's Blood soap. And surprised me also with a corresponding solid lotion bar in Midnight Pomegranate.


Seriously, I love everything here.
The Midnight Pomegranate soap and lotion smell exactly like the Bath & Body Works originals, which I am a huge fan of and have used for years.
I've had everything sitting on my desk since I first got it in the mail, and my desk is where I do most of my studies/schoolwork and writing etc. So I've gotten to smell these wonderful scents the whole time and I've not even used them in the shower yet!
  All three products sent me were packaged very professionally. And as I said earlier, I love how there are Scripture verses included on the business cards and on the solid lotion tube container.
Speaking of the solid lotion, this has been one of my favorite beauty products lately.
I know it was intended for use as obviously a moisturizer, but I've been utilizing it as a solid perfume since I love the smell so much. I just rub it on my wrists, lower forearms and neck - voila! I smell instantly fabulous. Of course, it also works wonderfully for its original purpose as a lotion - I usually feel my hands get very dry after I wash dishes so I rubbed some of this on them and it definitely improved their condition.
In short, if I buy any more lotion - or solid perfume in the future, it will probably be from here. You can get a tube for $6.50 which is a pretty good price for quality, homemade goods!

The Dragon's Blood soap is amazing. I showed it to Mom and she wants to try it out, she liked the scent so much. She even asked if she could 'do a review' of it. Haha!
But in all seriousness, mmmm this is a nice soap. It even looks cool. You can't tell in any of my pictures really but there are these neat sparkly gold specks on the top ridges.
The scent is delightfully warm and enticing.  A tad on the exotic side.  Features hints of amber, vanilla and patchouli. Mmmm-mm!

The Midnight Pomegranate soap is of course my favorite. I could keep on smelling it for ages and not get tired of its wonderful aroma! Haha, so maybe I sound a little obsessed with wonderful smells right now. But hey, the sense of smell is a blessing is it not?
This soap has a very feminine, romantic scent. Fruity, of course! Along with the main notes of pomegranate, it features hints of orange, cinnamon and vanilla. Delishhh!

Overall, I recommend Faith, Soaps & Love 100%.
The products are phenomenal, and the shop owner was such a pleasure to work with. If I can support any Christian businesses I will certainly try to do so over a secular business. Supporting fellow brothers and sisters in the faith is something I think we should do as much as we're able.
So if you need to buy some soap, or just want to because by now you're convinced this store is awesome, check out FS&L right now.
And while you're at it, why not like them on Facebook?
 Here's a further incentive to buy something from FS&L - Tracy has offered a coupon code just for APOC readers, for 15% off your order! Better hurry and take advantage of it, it lasts till February 28th. 
The coupon code is "CLASSY".
Hope y'all are having a blessed day!
