Amathia Soapworks Review and Giveaway


I have to come clean. Yes, pun intended. I am a soapaholic.

What you ask? A soapaholic. I love soaps. I obsess about soaps. I like all types of soaps and I have the proof. I actually have a whole bathroom cabinet dedicated to soaps that I have gotten from stores, farmers markets, fairs, festivals, and as far as Costa Rica and Nicaragua. If I see soap, I buy it.

It got so bad that my husband banned me from buying more soap until I used up at least 1/3 of my stash. It was hard but I did it. But every once in a while I sneaked a soap into the cabinet without him knowing.

When I had the opportunity to review Amathia Soapworks there was no way I was going to turn that down. Sample soap? I was all over that!

I received some samples from Amathia Soapworks. I have to say that I think I am a bit of a soap connoisseur. I have tried all types of soap. What impressed me about Amathia Soapworks is that they use the best quality ingredients to make the soaps.

That is super important to me because although I will use commercially made soap, I prefer handmade soaps. I will always choose handmade soaps over any other type. Amathia also uses the cold process technique of soap making which is the old fashioned way of making soap. The soaps are also made in small batches. Small batching ensures the quality of the soap.

I tried the Ginger-Lime soap and loved it. The smell was delicious. The subtle smell of citrus with the spicy scent of ginger is so clean and refreshing.  The soap left my skin moist and not dry, which is another thing I look for in soaps. Many times, even with handmade soaps, I find that they will dry out my skin. Amathia soap did not. It lathered up nicely and left my skin smooth. The fragrance lasted and I could smell it a few hours later.

I would definitely buy Amathia soaps, when and if the soap embargo is over. Amathia Soapworks had some fragrances that I really wanted to try. The Sweet Pea Shea, Nectar Honeysuckle Jasmine and the Solace Mint Trio soap sound so good! Amathia also offers some beautiful wooden and glass soap holders. Also available are lip moisturizers, candles and scrub soaps. The variety is endless.

If you are a soap lover like me, you can go over to Amathia Soapworks and use the code "WILLYNILLY20" at checkout to receive 20% off all products. Valid until August 31st. That is awesome!

One of my lucky readers also has the opportunity to win a variety stack of mixed soaps. These little soaps are great because you get a mix of fragrances and I always use these as my facial cleansers in the morning!
