Naiad Soap Arts - Product Review

I love using handmade, natural soaps and skincare products. Not only do I feel good about using products made with natural, wholesome ingredients, but, I really like being able to support artisans and crafters who create these products.

I recently learned of a shop called Naiad Soap Arts.

There, owner Erin Pikor creates wonderful soaps, scrubs, lip balms, and beauty oils. She specializes in high quality cold process soaps in a variety of beautiful designs and fragrances! She kindly sent me a bar of her Bamboo Sugarcane Artisan Soap to try out for myself. Take a look, it's such a pretty bar of soap...

Not only is the soap beautiful, but it smells really good, too. I enjoyed the mild, light lather and the way it left my skin feeling and smelling so nice. The bar is a substantial size and weight - it didn't start to melt away to nothing after only a few uses like some homemade soaps tend to do.

Some other soaps available at Naiad Soap Arts include:

Rosemary Mint Artisan Soap

Connecticut Beach House Artisan Soap

Peppermint Tea Tree Artisan Soap

You can also purchase all natural liquid soaps. Available scents include Lemongrass, Lavendar Lime Fennel, and Rosemary Mint. These are next on my list to try from Naiad Soap Arts!

Lip balms can be purchased in traditional tube form or fun tin sliders in a variety of fragrances.

Orange Rose All Natural Lip Balm

Tin Slider Lip Balms

I encourage you to visit Naiad Soap Arts, or Erin's Etsy shop to see all of the amazing products that she has for sale. You're sure to find something you like and it's a great chance to support a hand-crafting artisan who has turned her passion into a career. And, for the rest of June, you can use coupon code ALASNAIAD10 for 10% off anything at Naiad Soap Arts website or Etsy shop - coupon code is good at both shops!

You can also keep up with Erin at Naiad Soap Arts on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and her blog.

Naiad Soap Arts sent me a free bar of soap to try out for myself. I was not obligated to write a positive review. All opinions expressed in this post are my own.
