Blog Blog Blog...



Hey Guys!
I know it's been a while. We are in prime holiday season right now and have been working like crazy lately, which is why you're not seeing new posts on the blog every day. We would love for you to send us requests about certain topics. No topic is off limits!! (ahem...as long as you stay in the bath and body category :)

Do you have a new store in your neighborhood that we can feature? Are you absolutely IN LOVE with a certain soap that you would like to share? Are you making your own soap recipes?

We would love to hear from you! Please send us your post requests to hello@uptownsoap.com
Hopefully, this will give us a much needed nudge to keep this blog more updated!

Find the theme and you get a lollipop!

Okay fine, I admit it - there is no theme this week. These are totally random soaps that I thought deserve the attention of our little blog. Some are cute, some are weird, some are tasty, some I need to have immediately. Either way, I think they're all amazing in their own way so make sure you take a peek!

Talk about a new version of SoapRocks! Unlike the original (which I highly despise) these are absolutely stunning.


I chose this because I love their packaging. And with a name like "Bay Citrus", how could you not like it.


Awesome packaging. The box is full of different types of olive oil soaps. They almost have a zen quality to them.


We need to do a similar idea in our stores. These large blocks of glycerin soap can be cup up to any size and sold by the pound. Lush stores also sell their soaps like this.


I love this store. I wish I knew the name of it. My favorite soap is the clear one with the grass.


The simpler, the better.


This shot was taken from a Savon de Marceille store. I have to admit, I'm a really big fan of their signature square shape.


Okay so for those of you that don't know this yet, I have a huge obsession with gingerbread man. So for me, soap doesn't get any more perfect than this. It's so charming, so adorable and it instantly whisks you off to fairy tale mode. Love love love.


Ah, what soap blog would be complete without a cop's best friend.


Chocolate Soap - Well I know that some of you chocoholics out there cannot take your eyes off this photo, but please scroll down - there's more!

Nope not a real box of chocolates.


And last but definitely not least, the soaptini. Till next time!
