Review of DirtyGirlSoaps on

Review of Etsy store for DirtyGirlSoaps at:

Lip balm, conditioner and soap. 1oz. mini bar samples, body butter.

**The Soaps**

-Ingrediants are listed! This is the best and most important

-These soaps are nice because they have little details of swirls, chunks of stuff and 'whipped topping' on them to give them a bit extra without needing too much. I also adore the fact that some of these are two tone and the colors are so gentle.

-Nice sized list of scents and types of soap. I'd feel overwhelmed, but there are fortunately sampler bars of soap that you can buy and try without commiting to a whole bar.

-Some soap photos are a little plain, but the random fruit keeps it a little more interesting.

-And look at the tiny little ladybug in the picture in the link. I'm not sure if that was deliberate or not, but it is kind of cute!

-I personally think that the watermellon would be great if it could somehow be made into watermellon slice shapes. Same goes with other round citrus scents. If necessary to cut anything off to create that shape, then use the cut off portions (if large enough) in soap sampling packages.


**The Body Butters, Lip Balms and Conditioners**

-If I bought multiple things of the body butter or conditioner, not sure if I could tell the difference between them other than by smelling them. From images, can't see if the labels list the specific smell/type. The smells do seem to be interesting though! Maybe on the Body Butter pictures an icon of what the smell is supposed to be could be placed in the lower corner (a tiny slice of watermellon for the watermellon smell, or a cotton candy cone for get the idea. :D), Pictures are definately important for buying because if people see the same picture over and over, they scroll faster over that product because they think it's the same thing/scent. I know I do it.


-I am loving the packaging design, the image is very pretty and it is still simple.
-Nice large selection of scents and product types. Not sure if I could come up with too many suggestions for scents...all these are so nice sounding!
-$5 S&H on up to 6 bars of soap. Prices aren't too bad either for the variety that is available.
I'd suggest this to a few friends who I know would love to get their hands on some of these scents! I'd buy as well.
-May need a little color coding or an icon on the label/in the pictures.
-A body butter sampler, like with the soap, might be a nice thing as well.

-Bath bombs, fizzies or salts may be something that I'd be interested in seeing in this store as well.
-Round fruits like Watermellon and Oranges (the soaps with similar scents) could be shaped into triangle portions and any shaved/cut off remainders could be applied towards a sampler packet.
-More accessories to go with the soaps? Wash cloths, loofahs?
