Soaperstar appears in De-Stress Magazine!

Soaperstar has been featured in the Winter edition of De-Stress Magazine, produced by Catherine Connors-Bevalot, a holistic and stress therapist based in Paris.  In a true reflection of how important online networking can be, we met via Twitter and Catherine kindly offered me a spot in the Winter edition of her magazine.  At the time of asking, I hadn't even opened the online store and the thought of being featured was scary but very exciting at the same time! Check us out on Page 6!!!

The magazine contains fantastic information about how to de-stress for Christmas and how to avoid those stressy pitfalls we've all experienced over the Christmas period.  Check it out - great articles and tons of information suitable for everyone. 

Catherine's company is called Stress Solutions 4 Life and her website can be found here  Thank you Catherine!

All the soaps featured in the magazine are available to purchase via our online store - drop by and make your Christmas shopping experience a joy!!!

Fabulous jewellery!

I wanted to do a post about a very excellent friend of mine, Lois Bartley, who runs Beads and More by Lois, a fabulous online jewellery store with the most lovely items.  She just had her second baby, a little boy called Shay (cue the awwhhhhhhhhhhing and cooooooooooing!) and she's already back into the thick of her business! She's relaunching her store by doing a fantastic giveway on her blog - check her blog out here  and check out her store here - you will NOT be disappointed believe me (and I know because my lovely hubby commissioned some incredible jewellery from her for my birthday and I'm also commissioning her to work on some Christmas presents I have planned for some very special family members - but don't tell!).  I think my favourite item is her Rainbow Cluster Star Charm bracelet, check it out here with picture below. 

Beads and More by Lois - one of the best online jewellery stores I have come across and one of the nicest people in the world!!! Check it out!!

Restocking of two favourites!

We have restocked two of our customers favourite soaps! As with all handcrafted products, each time you make one, it's slightly different each time.. that's the beauty of them, you get a totally unique item every time!

So, introducing (again) our Twilight Haze soap - a handcrafted luxury cocoa butter & glycerine soap with added Apricot Kernel Oil, skin hydrating factor, and our Twilight Haze Fragrance Oil - a unisex blend of pomegranates, raspberries, plums & pink peppercorns on a base of frankincense, patchouli & dark spicy woods.  This soap is totally SLS free also!

And our Chunky Choc Delite, a handcrafted luxury goatsmilk & glycerine soap with added Apricot Kernel Oil, skin hydration factor and our Chunky Choc Delite Fragrance Oil - a richly decadent milk chocolate scent on a vanilla cream base.

Both are now available to purchase in our online store at Soaperstar's Online Store - - drop in soon!!!!

Sorry no posts lately!

We've just come back from London on a short trip which was over the weekend, which, as regular readers will know, is my soaping time! So now I'm itching to get back into it and just wondering what type I should make next? And I'm thinking that I need to do some restocking.. so what about making some more Chunky Choc Delite, and some Twilight Haze too? And I really need to work on that soap for men ... I've been asked to think about a scrubby element in that ... hmmm I need to think about that, what would be best I wonder?

So it's restocking time for Soaperstar - which is great because it shows just how popular those soaps have been!

Now the interesting thing will be if I can make them so that they look just like this again! That's the great thing with handcrafted items, one piece never looks the same as the next so you know that you are truly buying a special item!

Check out Soaperstar's Online Store for all our soaps ... we'd love to see you there!! Soaperstar's Online Store!!!

More Soaperstar Soaps!

I spent my Saturday creating! And made two new Soaperstar soaps - both are wonderfully fragranced and have added Apricot Kernel Oil and an additional skin hydrating factor.

Firstly we have Festive Orange Spice - a beautiful blend of goatsmilk and glycerine soap, swirled with lots of glittering mica, wonderfully luxurious with added Apricot Kernel Oil and an extra skin hydrating factor and fragranced with a strong, dark, deep and spicy blend of orange and cinnamon - this just totally smells of Christmas to me!!

I also made Passionate Purple - this is a blend of goatsmilk & glycerine soap, deeply coloured with natural glittering mica and wonderfully fragranced with a deep, sensual and exotic passionflower fragrance - wonderfully perfumed, this scent will linger gently on the skin after your bath or shower so no need for an extra perfume (saving you money!).

Both soaps are now available to buy online - check out the Soaperstar Online Store for details!!! These are newly added today and are only available for a short time only (we specialise in small batches limited edition soaps!).

Three New Soaperstar Soaps!!!!

Sorry I've not been here posting too much lately, getting the website up and working has been a huge job!!! And I've so missed soaping but I went mad at the weekend and made three new Soaperstar soaps....

Chocolate Mocha - goatsmilk & glycerine soap with added creamy Cocoa Butter, an additional skin hydrating factor and all wondering fragranced with a sumptious chocolately scent on a base of vanilla latte - this is soooooooooooooooooo good!!!

Zesty Citrus Cream - goatsmilk & glycerine soap with added Apricot Kernel Oil, an additional skin hydrating factor and wonderfully fragranced with a tangy, zesty velvety smooth citrus fragrance - also with added glittering natural mica! So fresh and fragrant, perfect for waking up to in your early morning shower.

And, finally, Raspberry Blonde, a goatsmilk & glycerine soap with added Apricot Kernel Oil, an additional skin hydrating factor and wonderfully fragranced with a delicious sweet tart creamy blend of juicy raspberries on a base of creamy vanilla... mouthwatering!!  This also has a wonderful glittering mica added (you can see it on the top of these soaps, it gives a lovely glisten to the soaps).

I hope you like these! All are now available on our new website - please come and check us out!!
