GoodKarmaSoap Review and Giveaway(5/27)

I'm quite excited because today I finally get to do a review for Blaire of Good Karma Soaps on Etsy!
She was kind enough to send me a bar of her amazing smelling Azurite Malachite Crystal Soap(seen to the right).

When I received the soap in the cute little red box, I was absolutely thrilled! I could smell the soap even before I opened the package.

I passed it around because naturally, my family was there to horn in on my 'moment' Lol but it was okay! They all loved the smell and color as much as I did =]

It's amazing how something so simple like the kindness of a stranger and the gift of a little handmade soap can do for a person! As many of you know, I don't have all that much energy these days and bathing is a very hard chore for me. But with this soap, I was able to look forward to my shower instead of dreading it and feel good and clean when I got out! Not to mention smell great! Lol

Some information you might want to know about Blaire:

*She accepts paypal, checks and money order

*Her soaps are available for wholesale! Just check Here for more information about wholesale prices and discounts.

*Soaps are made fresh to order and will take three days after initial purchase to ship.

*She uses U.S Postal Service but if you need expedited shipping, please let her know and it will be priced right away.

If you take a look at her store, you can find ANYTHING! And I do mean anything(soap wise that is). She has some of the cutest soaps from little legos for your little boy to absolutely gorgeous gemstone soaps. That woman can create anything when it comes to soap!



And not only did she send me her product to try, she has offered a $25.00 gift certificate to her store Good Karma Soaps!


So here's whatcha gotta do to enter:
Manditory:

These soaps look fabulous! My favorite is probably the Southern Pecan Pie but honestly (and I have the windows open and am still looking at their pics) there are so many creative soaps to pick from it's too hard to only choose one. The Cheese soap w/mouse for kids is adorable, too ~

And a new soap/name I would suggest would be Rock Candy! It could look crytal-ish like old fashioned rock candy and smell sugary sweet, too!

Deb said...

I absolutely LOVE the Soap Tower!! It's like functional art! I can totally see this in my bathroom, and I can totally see none of my guests using it because it's too beautiful to mess up. LOL! I love that you can choose your own color and fragrance to suit your mood or decor. Great idea!!

nostrilb said...

I love that the White Chocolate Soap with Dark Chocolate Drizzle has real chocolate in it, not just having the look and smell. I would like to see peach or cotton candy smell. Thanks! iwontru@yahoo

TwinsanityMom said...

White chocolate soap with dark chocolate icing would have to be my favorite but I know my kids would love the mouse and cheese soap!

New scent??? Maybe something for men, something with patcholli(sp?) in it, that always smells manly, maybe in the shape of a muscle car or motorcyle...my hubby would love it!

Oh I have bookmarked this Etsy shop! Tons of gorgeous soaps, wow!!

But if I didn't get him the diamond shaped ones, my son would be disgusted with me, ha - he's nutty about all things *gems*.

I would love to see a real cardamom scented soap. Swooon. = )

I love the Crystal Geode soaps! They're very pretty and real-looking.

I think pomegranate soap would be a great flavor. Plus, it has a beautiful jewel-red color that would be lovely.

Penny said...

I like the Lemon Grove Think Outside The Box Soap....love lemons! For a soap suggestion how about an amber gemtstone soap. Or an amber soap with a bug embedded in it?

the student said...

I looove the Turquoise Tiger Herb Exotic Soap, it is so gorgeous!

And the "Think Outside the Bar" soaps made me think of barnacles..I think a cool new "flavor" could be a soap that looks like a piece of wood with "barnacles" on it .. like it was torn off a shipwreck .. a piratey adventure in the bath! ;)

Coco said...

I love the Cheese Soap with Mice Friends! It's too cute and so well made! I can't believe it's soap!

As for a new flavor, I would suggest cheesecake! It's my favorite type of cake and it would totally match the cheese soap :D

Coco said...

I follow your blog!

Hypnotransformations said...

I like the chili soap. All the soap in her shop is awesome, hard to choose just one! I think a good scent would be peppermint sticks. That would be interesting...

Fashion, Philosophy, and Reality said...

The cheese and mice soap is my fav http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25118580


I like the idea of a lemonade (or pink lemonade) scented soap.

karmakaytlyn said...

All of the soaps are just beautiful, almost too much to use! The crystal geode soaps are beautiful at http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25020709. The Light Up BOuncy Ball Soap at http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=24185188 sounds awesomely fun and the Think Outsde the Bar Lavender Oatmeal at http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23290999 sounds as scentalating as your Columbian Espresso Bar at http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22935267.
Thanks so much for the opportunity to win some of the beautiful soaps!!!

karmakaytlyn said...

One idea I have is to make little truffle soaps that smell like chocolate and re sold in little truffle boxes in scents and each can smell like chocolate and a different fruit scent! Thanks again!

My favorite is the Think Outside the Bar Lavender Oatmeal :) I'd like a pomegranate and/or raspberry soap 'flavor'. *Thanks* for the giveaway!
