Kismet ... Redesign & Bright Colours

I have a thing for bright colours.. they always make me happy and joyful and put a smile on my face.  What more could you ask for? I'm a huge fan of pink (you just have to look at my range to see that) and I ADORE the combo of hot pink and orange together... I always thought they look so great.  So, when it came to my restock marathon, I knew I just had to make a hot pink and orange soap and I knew just the soap to make.

Kismet is another redesign of a big favourite of our customers - I decided to kick it up a notch though, from last time, so, this time round, this Pure Silk soap contains our ever loving blend of Sweet Almond & Golden Olive oil along with lashings of creamy Cocoa Butter .. then we added our new Triple Milks formula which is lots of Buttermilk, Goatsmilk & Coconut Milk ... natural sources of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and a natural source of AHA's plus all those milk fats are sooooooooo good for your skin.

Then I added White Kaolin Clay to give the soap more slip and glide plus it helps remove dirt and excess oils, Colloidal Oatmeal which gives a silky feel and helps to condition and soften your skin.  It's also said to be excellent for dry, itchy, sensitive skin.  I added, of course, our pure wild tussah silk for extra luxury and silkiness.. you can't have a Pure Silk soap without actual real silk in it.

The fragrance is a stunning blend of  Patchouli, Orange, Lemongrass, Lavendin, Pine, Gardenia, Sandalwood & Musk and oh boy, does it smell SO GOOD!! It's a VERY popular fragrance for us and I suspect that this soap will be running off the shelves once cured!

The technique that I used here is one I laughingly call "The Celine Swirl"... I'm sure there's another name for it and someone else has done it before (there's very little new under the sun after all) but I don't know what it's called so I just called it The Celine Swirl.  Funny thing now is other soapers are trying it out and calling it that - hilarious!

Here is the Making Of video and it shows you just how to do The Celine Swirl (I laugh everytime I write that you know!):

Here is the Cutting video so you can see just how the swirls worked out:
