I may have been the last beauty blogger on earth to try Maryam’s Soap Nook products but I’m really glad that I finally have. I have a soft spot for handmade beauty products like this and now that I have attempted to make my own, I can appreciate this even more.
The first product I tried was Maryam’s handmade soap. The scent I tried was inspired by the ultra-hip Hotel Costes in Paris, France. It’s not the type of scent that I would normally try, it was a bit warmer than I would prefer but this didn’t take away from my experience. This soap features notes of lavender, bay-tree, coriander, white pepper, rose, incense, woods and light musk. What shocked me the most about this soap is how long the scent lingered on my body. Several hours after my shower, able to smell this on myself. Not every soap can make that claim. This made me wonder…how long would the scent last if I could layer it? I added that to my to-do list.
With some hand made soaps, I have a hard time using them because they don’t produce enough lather to really feel like I’m doing something. This is not the case here, there was plenty of lather to go around. I also really liked the exfoliating ingredients in the soap, there were some grains that served as a nice exfoliant and this was a nice surprise. It was also really nice to see such colorful soap. Take a look at Maryam’s other soaps. She also has tropical soaps, unisex soaps, cream soaps and spa soaps. Aren’t the colors beautiful? Now I just have to decide which scent I want to try layering with..
There’s more Maryam’s Soap Nook goodness on the way in the coming week.
