Wild Daisy Whipped Soaps

I've been into sweet scents and all things that smell good recently. I came across these whipped soaps over at Wild Daisy and decided to pick some up because they sounded so so so tempting. They just look like whipped cream and they do feel like that too! They were priced at $7 each and shipping was also around $7. Apart from whipped soaps, Wild Daisy also carries sugar scrubs and bar soaps in the same sweet scents so there is a wide variety of soaps to choose from their body range. After careful consideration, I picked out Candy Cane (my number one choice because I am a huge peppermint lover), Cookie and Pumpkin Spice. I decided to treat myself to this and bought them over Christmas. I only just recently shipped them back home and tried it out. 

These soaps come in rather small jars of 113g each. They are really light and fluffy in texture, which never ceases to amaze me and have amazing smells. They are all infused with jojoba beads to provide some exfoliation and they lather up pretty well. A little definitely goes a long way. I usually scoop up a dime's worth and that lathers up just enough for me. The difference between whipped soaps and normal soaps is that the lather feels extra smooth and creamy. The foam is richer and thicker than liquid soaps. Bath times are so much more fun now, thanks to these soaps. 
Pumpkin Spice has a orangey pink colour to it and mostly smells like cinnamon. I'm not sure how pumpkin is supposed to smell like but I think it is really subtle. The cinnamon is stronger. It is looking amazingly soft in the jar right now and so tempting to eat. LOL. 
Candy cane was the one that got me the most. It was the reason why I wanted to buy these soaps in the first place. I love all things peppermint and holiday scents anytime of the year is always great because it just fills you with good cheer and memories. This one definitely smells just like candy canes/peppermint because it is infused with peppermint oils and the colour is so on point. Again, I love the texture of how this is looking. 
I've actually only tried out the Cookie one so far because it arrived in a less than perfect state as shown. It actually smells more like buttered popcorn to me, rather than cookies. It's got that coconut smell to it and I guess in some way, it could be a Christmas cookie kind of scent but I think of buttered popcorn jelly beans when I smell this. It's got a slight brownish colour and feels absolutely amazing. It lathers up to a rich thick white foam and slides on smoothly. The smell does stay on for a few hours after my bath so I like that. 

Out of curiosity, I googled how whipped soaps are made and man, they take a lot of effort and time, but it definitely seems fun and the whipped form gets me really excited (call me weird). But basically, you put a bunch of chemicals together to form your soap solution and then whisk it with an electric whisker until it gets all white, soft, foamy, poofy, squishy, looking just like whipped cream. Then, you gotta let it cure for a month before adding colouring or scents to it. It's a long process but you can make a hell lot of it, if you're into making your own soaps. I think I'd just pay for mine but I'd like to try it out one day. 

I definitely recommend these soaps to everyone because the texture is so interesting and I love the whipped cream look it has. It is the most amazing form of soap I have ever tried and I will be coming back to whipped soaps once I've finished these. I think one tub can last me 3-4 months, so it's not bad at all in my opinion. Do grab one because they sell out fast. Words cannot describe how much I am in love with this.
