Shameless Plug: Paintbox Soapworks

I'm not a girly girl, but one thing I do love are really nice bath products. I'm picky about the scents, though, and generally stay away from sticky sweet smells like vanilla or cinnamon bun (and if you give me anything patchouli...gag). I prefer fresh, and my all-time favorite is white tea. Or was.

Recently I ordered the gingermilk sugar scrub, and then soon after, the gingermilk lotion from Hayley at Paintbox Soapworks. Oh man. It's like no smell I've smelled before--well, aside from ginger...and milk.

It's my new favorite and my family is hoping the enchantment will wear off soon so I'll stop sticking my forearm in front of their faces and saying, "Smell me."

It also doesn't hurt that Hayley and I seem to have the same taste in music, and she names many of her products after alternative rock songs like "Dead Leaves on the Dirty Ground," "Big in Japan," and, best of all, a scent named after my all-time favorite band, The Smiths, called "This Charming Man."

Janet's Wish List (in case any of my followers or husbands are interested....)

Glycerin soap in a scent called Downpour.

White Cotton Sheets....I love these fresh, clean scents.


And by the way, Hayley had nothing to do with this shameless plug, except for selling me awesome products. I bought them and loved them so much I asked her for permission to brag about her. She graciously accepted.


  1. Aww I love handmade Bath and Beauty!! What a great post :)

  2. Nicely done. Makes me want to try some. Does she have anything in a nice Wood Glue or maybe Automotive Primer for the guys?
