I've been working with the spoon swirl for a while now and the more I do it, the more I love it! I made this soap early on Saturday morning when everyone was still in bed. By the time I'd reached the top of the mould, hubs made an appearance and together we made the sort of spotty design on top. Awwhh families that soap together, stay together .. right?!!
Anyway, this soap also features a new formula because I wanted to incorporate Sweet Almond Oil into my recipe more - this has Sweet Almond Oil, Olive Oil, Avocado Oil and Cocoa Butter plus pure silk! What a skin loving combo if I ever saw one! It's coloured with a mix of mica and liquid soap colours as well as some titanium dioxide to whiten the soap more. It has, as ever, a tiny sprinkling of glitter too (and why not I say!).
I am in love with this soap, cut this evening and photographed freshly cut because it just looked soooo pretty. I present to you, Black Raspberry Vanilla cold process soap:

I cannot tell you how much in love I am with this soap - it smells DIVINE and I could stare at it's wonderful colours all days. Seriously I so want to take a bite, it looks like the most luxurious raspberry ripple ice cream (not a good idea though!).
If you're interested in possessing one of these (it's the sort of soap you need to possess I think!), they'll be fully cured by 11 July!
