Comments: The quality of the base is so good. I couldn't believe how quickly I received it. I ordered it on Thursday or Friday, and I got it on Monday. Wow.

Comments: Unfortunately, this melt and pour base made the soaps very drying. It left a soap film on my skin. I might try another melt and pour base with olive oil to check if there is a difference.
FNWL Response: Hi Angela, overheating melt and pour soap bases or keeping it on the stove longer than it takes to melt it can dry out the soap and cause moisture loss. (It's also best not to microwave melt and pour soap, though some people do have successful results when doing it carefully and in short bursts.) This could be the reason for your results. We strongly encourage you to heat your melt and pour soap at a low temperature, using a double boiler. We offer a double boiler insert in our Equipment section if you need one.

"I use (and love, love, love!) your Pearlesecent Micas which get me compliments all the time, from coworkers to makeup artists at swanky cosmetic counters. It's cool because people are always asking me where I bought my eyeshadow and it's satisfying to say, "I didn't buy it-- I made it!" As someone with a darker-than-medium skin tone, it's great to be able to blend my own colours that actually show up on me, e.g., 1 part Golden Glow to 1 part Matte Orange = "Yummy Peach"."
