|Introduction to my review of bath and body products from Paintbox Soapworks:
I have wanted to try this company ever since I saw their beautifully packaged, colorful line of products on Etsy.
Painbox Soapworks offers a variety of natural, SLS-free, and organic products in scents to please all tastes. Their permanent scent list is unique and impressive and they also regularly introduce limited seasonal scent collections.
Paintbox Soapworks is owned and operated by a trained pastry chef, which becomes evident when you take a look at some of their appealing, gourmand creations!
|The Queen is Dead Luxury Glycerin Soap
"The Queen is dead! Long live the Queen! Blackened honey, glossy leather & a glittering swirl of smoke rising from the earth... This is a truly wicked blend, inspired by the enormous black bees that hold forth in our garden as the earth scorches in the late summer heat... Sweet but sinister, and certainly not for the faint of heart."
What does it smell like? I mostly smell honey with whiffs of leather and smoke in the background. Deliciously fragrant down to the final sliver and I can detect the scent on my skin for a couple of hours afterward. Very rare! I have never had a soap leave my skin so soft. These bar soaps get my highest recommendation.
|Dead Leaves on the Dirty Ground - Sorbetto Emulsifying Sugar Scrub
"The quiet, introspective side of fall. Woodsmoke, rustling leaves & the dark chill of an autumn night. The night's revelry has come to an end, & everyone has clustered near the fire as the coolness of the evening creeps in from the woods. The coals pop & sigh, & we each fall silent, lost in the dance of the flames & the whisper of the dry leaves in the trees. Deep, leafy patchouli, smoke, fresh-cut wood & a trace of frost."

|Closing to my review of Painbox Soapworks:
I can see myself returning to this company again to try more of their tempting scents in all of their products.
Since many of their scents are gender neutral, including the ones I have reviewed, I can share with family or give as attractive gifts. Their products have high quality ingredients and I was very pleased with their customer service, extremely fast shipping, and thoughtful extras.
Happy bath and Body shopping!
