S.O.A.P. Opera - Episode 5

Recap from last episode: I tested all 8 mystery fragrance oils from Bramble Berry on M&P soap.  White is just not me, so I color coded all of them!  Are they just adorable?!  Some lucky winner(s) will get these little 3D owls up close and personal!

I'm moving on, down next item on my test schedule, thick hand cream with added emu oil imported from Australia.  They will all start white in crystal clear bottles and being examined for the next few days to see if there's any color change or scent morphing.  Then I'll actually squeeze a quarter size one day each and use it on my arms to see how it feels like during the day.  You know what?!  My favorite has changed, there's a surprising underdog that top my list now, strange, isn't it?!  It is #8!!!  I can't seem to get if off my nose!
There are obvious color change in #1 and #7 after 2 days.  Other than that, I really can't tell.


  1. Oh they look great too! What does No. 8 smell of to you?

  2. To tell you the truth... I don't know... (blushing) But one time the fragrant and pungent scent of a balsamic fir pine fruit Christmas wreath came in my mind. Does that make any sense to you? It is not my favorite but I can't take it away from my nose, it is very strange...

  3. Oh Emu oil how wonderful for the lucky ones! The second photo is very cool with the shadow effect of the bottles at the top. Interesting to see the discoloration.

    Did the discoloration of these two also discolor the m and p soaps?

  4. Pam, actually M&P is different, surprisingly #8 is getting yellow tint. I don't remember seeing color change at #7 owl last time I looked, which is yesterday.

  5. Oooo, I'm going to be testing in my lotion base tomorrow! Just made up a batch this afternoon, and letting it cool overnight. Can't wait to see what happens! My friend Summer said #8 reminded her of Christmas too! (She helped me with the CP test over the weekend.)

  6. Interesting discoloration differences between the lotion and MP!
