I had been looking for some lovely handmade soaps for my mother in laws birthday when i came across Erin at Innerearthsoaps. I had searched high and low on etsy for soaps by an Australian soap maker (I had, as usual, left it to the last minute to try and source a great gift and had no time to have any shipped from the US)
I finally found Erin after searches and searches and looking through listings and listings! ... and I am so very pleased i did!
The order was sent out promptly and when i received it everything was packaged so very beautifully and carefully - you could tell that Erin strives to treat all her customers well and takes care when packaging things off to customers (not just shoved in a bubble bag without so much as a second thought, as i have experienced on other occassions from OTHER sellers). The box was neatly packaged and each soap packed invidually with a label marking each type and ingredients. All were made with the utmost of care and presented simply but beautifully. They were packed in a box with good fill that ensured they got to me safely and in the same condition they were sent in (i'm very big on presentation and correct packaging - i like my things to arrive just as they have left me too and give the customer a nice little buzz unwrappng their new items!). Erin also included some nice little samples which i am thrilled with as i will not get to use the ones i purchased due to being a gift! I can thoroughly recommend innerearthsoaps, and will definately be back for more!
"Erin is a soapmaker in Bondi Beach who makes hers soaps completely from scratch using the cold process method. She uses the highest quality oils, butters, botanicals, therapeutic clays, essential and fragrance oils in her soaps. They have a silky, bubbly lather that cleanses the skin gently wihtout stripping it of its natural oils. No more dry, tight feeling ... her handmade soap is a world of difference from commercial soap! With well over 300 sales on her Etsy shop and not one unhappy customer, I would definitely recommend checking it out here at http://www.innerearthsoaps.etsy.com/."
