Oatmeal Jelly Soap in Lacoste Pink Scent Giveaway

I've been wanting to share with you my success with my soap making projects for a long while. In fact, it has been almost a year since I last bought a bar of soap in the market. I've been using my own and I've been loving it since. My love for homemade all natural spa products started in 2003.... I was featured in Inquirer and took up almost a whole page of the lifestyle section!

Since then, I've been selling my products, on a per order basis, to the whole Philippines! Cinderella wanted me to go mainstream but I declined, thinking that it might take the fun out of making my own beauty skin products in the comforts of my home.

But I kept at it, in my own time. And I never stopped since!

And now here we are with my new Oatmeal Jelly Soaps. They're natural and organic so it's really good for the skin! :)

This one that I'm going to share with you is my Oatmeal Herbal Jelly Soap with the essence of Lacoste Touch of Pink. I only used glycerin, oatmeal, water, honey and the essence of Lacoste Pink to make this soap. When I say essence, it's not the perfume per se. It's a special essential oil that exhibits the smell of Lacoste Touch of Pink. Here's how it looked like before the curing process. It's reddish but when it finally hardened and cured, it turned a lighter shade of orange.

Why Jelly Soap?

I call them jelly soaps because as compared to the ones sold in the market, my soap feels and looks like jelly or gelatin. My husband almost ate it one time when he got home and saw my soaps laid out on the table. LOL!

It is quite soft so you can actually rub it directly on your skin, as vigorously as you want. When used daily, this small piece of soap can still last a month. And it's like having your own spa right in your shower every time! The oatmeal is a natural, gentle cleanser that contains saponins. It provides gentle exfoliation as it penetrates deep into your skin, thereby making your skin smooth and supple. If you use it on your face, the oatmeal absorbs excess oil leaving your skin not just smooth, but also shine-free. I actually came from the shower just now and I've just toweled off. I haven't applied any lotion on my skin yet, but it already feels smooth and supple. Amazing!

Another natural ingredient I used when I made my Oatmeal Jelly Soap in Lacoste Pink Scent is honey. Honey has antibacterial properties which are good for healing wounds and minor blemishes, as well as disinfecting your skin. You can actually directly apply honey on your skin twice a week to naturally get rid of acne. It is gentle on sensitive skin and acts as a perfect humectant, meaning it helps retain moisture for your skin.

So that's it for my Oatmeal Jelly Soap in Lacoste Pink Scent. I'll be sharing some more next time. If you wanna know more about the basics of soap making, check out the related posts by following this link: Soap Making

Oh, and I plan to give away two of my Oatmeal Jelly Soap in Lacoste Pink Scent to two lucky commenters, one jelly soap for each. I'll also throw in one Sexy Nomad apparel from my collection for each lucky commenter. You just have to do the following if interested:

I will manually raffle the two winners and show it here through a video. Deadline is on Oct. 14 at 11:59pm. So that's it! Good luck! :)

Disclaimer: The ingredients used in the homemade soaps (honey, oatmeal, and glycerin), though natural and organic, may have side effects on your skin if you're allergic to it. Apply first on a small area of your skin. Otherwise, herbal organic soaps are generally safe to use and good for sensitive skin.

  30. Hi Jen, your oatmeal jelly soap looks yummy and I bet it will make my skin yummier too after using it. It's a good alternative too to the commercially available soaps that often irritate my skin, so I want to try your soaps esp. the oatmeal jellies since it's homemade and I want to see its effect on my skin.

    It's been a long time since I ordered from you. Can I still ask you to produce for me? miniature versions, as samplers for my start-up day spa here in Bicol

  35. I love the aroma of that soap. Lacoste pink is one of my favorite perfumes. It is good for any season of the year.
