FUgly edition #1 - Mint-Chocolate Soap Tarts


Every now and then I have some creations that didn’t exactly pan out the way I hoped. This may be business suicide displaying my failures but this blog is about me making scents - sometimes :-)


The products are not that they are dangerous or don’t work but just UGLY.  Sometimes there is a disconnect from the brain to the hands that don’t look as I imagined. Usually my family are the guinea pigs to use thing I won’t sell or surplus that hasn’t sold. If you want them you can have them at cost & shipping if I haven’t already used it.


Okay something about these look just nasty to me but I swear it smells amazing. The mint color with the chocolate curls isn’t exactly what I pictured no matter how I tried to maneuver it. They look like brown worms or fingernails! The soap is functional and did cleaned rather well.  I didn’t think I would like to smell  like chocolate but I used a small amount of dark chocolate scent so I smelled minty clean with just a touch of cocoa!  Do you have any FUgly disasters?

It doesn't look as bad as you think, really :)

I don't think it's that bad. :) I actually like Mint & Chocolate combination but most of the time in ice-cream or chocolate, never had them in soaps! But love to see more.

God Bless

I luv the shape but the color reminds me of mint chocolate ice cream.
