I first discovered (Savonniere Mika) Savon de Mika when I was surfing around for soap blogs. A Japanese who now resides in France (and married to a French), Mika makes the most gorgeous soaps in the shape of Christmas logs and also cake soaps!
When she published the call for testers for a few soaps she had recently made (I reckon they were her new palm-free soaps), I decided to drop her a note.
I received a lavadin bar, red clay bar and finally one made with colza (rapeseed) oil. When I first took the parcel out of the post box, I knew instantly that it was soap because of the wave of lavandin that hit my nose. So I decided to test this bar – seen right at the back in the picture above – to see what I got.
The beginning of the bubble test yielded light and fluffy bubbles but as you rub further, you get a nice batch of creamy silky lather as you can see below. There is a strong yet not overpowering scent of lavandin on the hands after washing and my hands feel nice after washing – not too tight and dry making it suitable for all types of skin.
