Just Soaps

A friend wrote me an email asking why haven't I updated my blog for a while. I've been busy with my trade activities, been watching Australian Tennis Open, lack of sleep, drained, somehow somewhere in between I'm still feeling very happy. I promised my friend that I'd post some soap pictures and there you go, enjoy:

These soaps were made weeks or at least 2 months ago. They are all for our own use.

Pic #1 - they're scented with honeydew melon. Delicious but not edible.
Pic #2 - they were supposed to look like zebras but turned out looking like morse code instead!
Pic #3 - these ugly things are the results of me making them half asleep. They might look ugly but still feel very luxurious on the skin. I've included plenty of different clays in them - feel like in a spa!

Oh zombie zebra soap? Wonder you can make them half sleep haha. Morse code or rather modern art now.

These are candies! I'm hungry now. I want! Or... are they really soaps? Ai, are you playing tricks on our minds? Opps, I'm dizzy.. +_+

You hypnotised me :P

Lily Riani said...

manglish said...

Bananaz,
Haha! I tend to make soaps half asleep. I used to pay lots of concentration when I first started making them. Over time, they're too easy and dozing off is a habit when things get easy for me.

MKL, Lily Riani,
Yes, they are soaps. Not cakes or candies. Don't eat them. It is a treat to shower with them especially when they are different from 1 colour ordinary soaps. They feel milder too.

Manglish,
There are many people selling skin care products including handmade soaps online. Right now, I'm still very busy with my main business. It already keeps me tied up :o). Maybe in the future if I've extra time to kill.

My fav is the last one. Looks like abstract on soaps! :)

Can you mail me some soap samples? Hehe..I don't mind being a soap tester. I like moisturising soaps.

Mei Teng said...

What's your main business? If you don't mind me asking.

HappySurfer said...

I've always, always been fascinated by your soaps, Ai Shiang. They are truly breathtakingly refreshing and might I add, delicious-looking? haha...

Mei Teng,
I'm thinking of posting a give away soaps entry. But haven't had the chance to do it. I didn't know that anyone out there would be interested to try them. I only have the 2nd pic soaps left at the moment. When I have one or two type more. I'll let you know.

Happysurfer,
Thank you for the compliments. Sometime I feel I'm a bit silly posting some of the soaps that didn't turn out looking good. But I'm glad that you like them :o)

it's inspiring to see u explore with ur different designs.. my favs are the cucumber melon, cucumber and coffee ones! i think it's great that you post ur different designs up - it's great for feedback too for your selling.

Tekkaus said...

I can buy these from you? Is it good? Haha :D

Paul said...

good looking soap :) the third one looks great.

Horsoon said...

I like the design #3 most! And I think it's cool to make soap for oneself... maybe I'll learn how to do that too :)

Ai Shiang said...

Lechua,
Oh! You like the cucumber melon soaps/coffee ones huh? I guess you like that type of swirling technique I use. I love trying out different designs, it's the best part of soap making.

Tekkaus,
Yes, you can :o)

Paul, Horsoon,
I'm surprised that you all like design #3. I thought I was a bit drunk (not literally) when I made them :o)

You should make a online sales site for it. What seems like hobby to you can be an art in may people's eyes.

Never underestimate the power of the word of mouth.

I have your site tagged as my regular read, so you can never run! Have fun with your busy schedule. Enjoy life!

Ayie said...

funny AI but the 3rd soaps really caught my attention, seeing on certain angle made it look like flowers or some interesting pattern

foongpc said...
