New Product: Hibiscus Rose Body Buff

This beautiful body scrub is part of our new Bliss line of luxe skin care products. This scrub is made with organic sunflower oil, hibiscus and rose petals and an amazing rose fragrance.  It gently buffs away dry, flaky skin and leaves you lightly moisturized. Unlike some of our previous body scrubs which were more on the oily side and had a potential to leave the tub slick, our new line of scrubs wash away cleaner and have an overall more enticing skin care experience.

We will be opening our Bliss skincare line with four body scrubs which will soon have matching moisturizers!


Product Review: Mauna Loa Volcano Soap

One of my favorite soaps from Halo Soap is the Mauna Loa Volcano Soap. 

The first thing I notice when I open it up is the smell. The smell is absolutely perfect! The fruity smell is unisex, so I can still smell like a guy after my showers.

The second thing I notice is the texture. I love having a soap with a scrubby feel to it and pumice already in it. Mauna Loa is gentle enough for my sensitive skin, but its still rough enough to get the dirt off me after a long day at work or working in the yard.

Overall, this soap is perfect for me and I plan on using it as long as its available from Halo Soap. Not only does it look good in its newly designed labels and with the soaps swirled mix of black and white color, its an all around great bar of soap for anyone!

Don't just take my word for it, check it out here and try it yourself!


Happy 4th from the Halo Soap Family

This weekend, we're spending our time at our family's lake house. 

We've been eatting delicious food

Chris has been fishing

Mom has been relaxing in the sun

And, of course, we've been using up some trial batches of Halo products!

We have some scrubs and masks so we've been treating our feet!
The Happy Pineapple scrub is so yummy and juicy smelling. We also have a Satsuma scrub. The scrub initially looks deceptively dry - but it's not! It made our skin soft and glowing. 

Mom also likes to do foot masks. You can feel the mask tightening as it's doing its job. 

We love using Halo products to pamper ourselves! 

Have a great holiday, everyone! From my family to yours,



Serums Are Awesome

I cannot tell you enough how great serums are. They are like a super concentrated moisturizer, infusing all of their benefits into your skin.  

If I were to take this quantity of oil and turn it into a lotion, it would make about 12-16 ounces of product. Now consider the cost of your average, basic facial moisturizer at Halo Soap. $8 for 2 ounces. That would make this "new" moisturizer cost $48-$64! It would also have a preservative in it making it NOT 100% natural. Now compare that to our serums. Not only is it a deal, but our serums are also 100% natural - made with luxury botanical oils and pure essential oils!

Let's take a closer look:
- Rose Serum - $25 - this product is made with a blend of oils including argan oil, organic rosehip oil and meadowfoam oil.  It also contains pure rose otto to give it an amazing scent and to soften mature skin while strengthening the collagen network.
- Moroccan Argan Serum - $14 - Features argan oil which is typically used for mature skin because its rich in anti-oxidants and fatty acids.
- Balancing Serum - $14 - Organic sunflower oil infused with herbs and botanicals to help balance combination skin. Features green tea, jojoba oil, calendula, ylang ylang essential oil and geranium essential oil.
- Calming Serum - $14 - Organic sunflower oil infused with herbs and botanicals to help mellow reddening issues of the skin. Features licorice root, gotu kola, carrot seed essential oil, German chamomile essential oil and helichrysum italicum essential oil.
- Mature Skin Serum - $20 - Organic sunflower oil infused with herbs and botanicals to help rejuvenate mature skin. Features ginger root, hibiscus flower, elderberry, andiroba oil, pomegranate seed oil, frankincense essential oil, carrot seed essential oil and neroli essential oil.

But that's not all. Did you know that you can combine a pump of your favorite serum with a few sprays of your favorite toner? Mix them together and you have your own instant lotion!

 Just rub them together to get the two emulsified and apply to your face.

Now back to serums.  You can use serums alone or with your favorite daily moisturizer. A little goes a long way and they are just lovely because they soak into your skin so fast!

Head over to our Etsy site to see our collection of skin care products or head over to one of our store fronts to try them in person.

New Lotion Labels

We're working on some big things this year at the soap shop.  One of those things is getting professionally printed product labels!  This is our first round of our Original Body Lotion with these awesome new labels.

Our old labels were printed using weatherproof label stock on a laser printer.  We had to individually hand cut them all.  They weren't that great because after a few uses, the label would crack and didn't look pretty!

These new labels are really spectacular.  They are printed on a matte finish "squeezable" label stock.  We absolutely LOVE them!


Konjac Sponges

We recently got something awesome and new at Halo Soap.  Konjac sponges!

These 100% natural vegetable fiber sponges are so great for cleansing.  Some pretty cool things about the Konjac sponge:
  • 100% natural vegetable fibres
  • Packed with minerals and antioxidants
  • Non toxic
  • 100% free from impurities and pollutants
  • Earth friendly
  • 100% cruelty free & certified vegan
  • Naturally sustainable
  • Environmentally Safe
  • Kind to The Environment & Skin
  • 100% Colouring Free
  • 100% Additive Free
  • 100% Biodegradable
If this list isn't enough to make you fall in love with the Konjac sponge, let me tell you - I've used it and I LOVE it!

There are 5 different sponges.
  • White Pure Konjac - for all skin types
  • Black Bamboo Charcoa - for oily and acne prone skin
  • Green French Clay - for oily and combination skin
  • Red French Clay - for dry, damaged and mature skin
  • Pink Clay - for tired and devitalized skin

I've decided to go with the konjac sponge created with activated charcoal.

We ordered the konjac sponges that arrive wet so before even opening the package you can feel how soft and smooshy it is!  When you come to our shop and see these in person, you'll see how awesome they are before even opening the bag.

Release the sponge!
Here is the konjac sponge in my hand for the first time.  I have to admit.  It was so cool. 
I wet this bad boy and got to work!

Here I am enjoying an end of the night cleansing from the konjac sponge.  It even made this really cool *squish*squish* noise as I used it!

Yes.  I absolutely love my konjac sponge.

Right now we only sell these bad boys at both of our store fronts.  But if you send me a message, we can discuss an online purchase!

Stay tuned for more goodness!

Soap, soap, soap!

I've been working like crazy at the soap shop to load up on soap after the holidays!  There are some long awaited returns sitting on this rack - Lavender, Oatmeal Milk and Honey - and some new ones too! 

I've been wanting to make a Pomander soap and a Patchouli Twist soap for quite a while. And I finally had time to do it! Want to know why I've been able to make all this soap? 

 My new oil melter! This bad boy helps me make 6 batches of soap a day (with time to spare!) when before I was only making 2-3 batches. 

These three batches of beer soap for Miller Brewing Company were made in under an hour! I love it. 

Well, folks - long story short: you have tons of soap to look forward to in the coming months!

On a final note, I leave you with a picture of kitty:
