I placed another order for some Quintescential goodies during a sale. I purchased the Lavender Vanilla bath fizzies (12 for $5.00), Red Velvet Cake soap, and the Chocolate Mousse whipped soap. Samantha included three Jelly Bean scented bath fizzies for me to try out! Shipping for my order was $6.50, and it actually cost her over $7.00 to ship.
This was my second order with Quintescentials, and once again I have to stress Samantha's customer service. I emailed her about my order over the weekend (probably the third time I've mentioned this now, but shipping seems to be taking quite a bit longer than usual) as it had been a month since my order was placed. Ironically, my order arrived today! I also want to stress that with the delays I have been noticing, it is NOT the sellers fault. The US postal service in combination with Customs seems to be even slower than usual. It's sort of funny that buyers in completely different continents are receiving their orders faster than us Canadian's, especially when I'm so close to the border.
My order arrived packaged in a box, wrapped in spring colored tissue paper and the bath fizzies were heavily wrapped in thick bubble wrap;. Other than some loose bits at the bottom of the bag, I'm pleased to say the fizzies ALL arrived in tact! (Not that it would've been a big deal if they weren't.)
Lavender Vanilla Bath Fizzies! Each fizzie is 1 1/2 inch by 1 1/2 inches, enough for one use but I will probably break them up into halves. The scent is an even mix of lavender and vanilla, not too strong. I liked that they arrived in a ziplock bag, because I usually transport my bath items into their own baggies anyway. I will most likely take a bath later tonight and post photos of the fizzies in the tub & a review!
The soap is just as pictured, except the bottom red contains red mica glitter! Very pretty. The ingredients are all listed on the label. It smells like yum. Mostly cream cheese with a hint of chocolate, again I will try this later on.
Now, this was the original reason for my order. Samantha just released Whipped Soaps, so far they are available in her Chocolate Mousse, Jelly Bean, Pumpkin Cheesecake or Pink Sugar scent. The scent is a tad fainter than the Chocolate Fudge body scrubs which I love. It smells AMAZING! Have you ever tried Jello's chocolate mousse pudding? It has a similar scent and a fluffy texture. It's actually thicker than most whipped soaps, and doesn't leave me feeling dry. I tried it on my hands and 5 min later there is still a light scent, yum!
Jelly Bean bath fizzies! The scent is very sweet, and the fizzies have a mix of pastel colors.
