OVERVIEW:

Hey Beauty Lovers! I have a really new and exciting product to tell you about. I have just recently started using bar soaps and I love them. I was skeptical if they really would moisturize my skin. I figured they would really dry out my skin, so I always avoided them. However, I find that bar soaps feel so luxurious and are incredibly moisturizing. I find they moisturize my skin way better than body washes. I don’t think I will be able to go back to liquid soap ever again.

These soaps from Marie Ernst are so amazing. They are a brand new company that is trying to launch. I was so excited when they contacted me to try their soaps. They looked so beautiful and are a completely new concept (more about that soon). I couldn’t wait to have them in my hand and test them.

Marie Ernst is currently having a Kickstarter Campaign to launch their business. I think it is so important to help new companies (especially beauty companies) get their start. I love getting to be a part of something new. We (all my readers) get to be part of a new company launch and have the opportunity to try these amazing soaps before they become the next big thing. I think that is so exciting.

I figured these soaps would be expensive! They look so luxurious and are packaged adorably (I am so in love with the packaging and the bow). I was almost afraid to review them because I thought none of my readers would be able to afford them. However, I am so shocked that one bar of soap only costs $7 (if you want to purchase more, they have many options)! Say what! If you purchase one of these soaps through the Kickstarter campaign, you will only have to pay $7 for the soap. How amazing is that. Also, you will only be charged the amount you pledge if the company raises the amount they need. If they don’t, you will not be charged anything. I think this is a sure way to guarantee you will not lose your money if the company is not successful.

These soaps would make amazing gifts, especially with Christmas just around the corner. You could order the bundle and split all the soaps up for all the women in your life. I think an adorable gift would be to create mason spa day jars and feature these soaps as one of the items. Every woman would love to receive a spa jar for those stressful days. You would be giving them a soap from a brand new company that not very many people have heard about. What a unique opportunity!

Now that I have rambled on about how excited I am about this new company, let’s get to the actual soap review and why I love them.

REVIEW OF marie ernst beauty bar in lemon beebrush:

IMG_1787 IMG_1788 IMG_1790 IMG_1789

I love the concept of this soap. Two bars combine into one to make the ultimate luxury body experience. One bar is the pumice bar which gently exfoliates and removes dead skin. The other bar is the skin moisturizer which leaves the skin feeling moisturized and lightly fragranced. The two parts combine into one for easy storing. I love that they come apart or can be left together. This is just such a neat concept.

I received the Lemon Beebrush fragrance. This soap is described as “invigorating cell-rejuvenating lemongrass & rosemary.” I really like the smell. It was strong at first, but really wakes me up and gets me ready to start the day. I love how natural these soaps are and that they are just so fun to use.

I love the pumice side of the soap for exfoliating. The exfoliating beads are so tiny, yet gritty enough to remove all the dead skin. They don’t feel harsh at all, but I can definitely tell it is removing the dead skin. The moisturizing side is so amazing. It instantly hydrated my skin and I totally CAN’T STOP FEELING HOW SMOOTH MY SKIN IS!  I am just beyond impressed. My skin looks radiant and just feels like baby skin. I am totally pledging to get more of these soaps and I hope you join me. I would love to hear what you think about them. It would be awesome if WordPress bloggers completely supported this company!

I totally wish I could send every single one of you one of these soaps! You seriously have to try them. They are unlike any soap I have ever tried. We really have a gem here in these soaps. If the company raises enough money, these will be the next big thing in beauty. I just love them!

More about the company and kickstarter campaign:

Here is some information about the company (from Kickstarter):

Marie Ernst™ is the latest brand to emerge in skincare innovation. Based in Portland Oregon, our company is committed to helping you uncover your young and youthful looking Skin with our revolutionary approach to Skin Care.

Marie Ernst™ was created, designed and patent pending by the Marie Ernst™ Team. Once we achieved the finest luxury soap we could imagine, we looked for an American manufacturer with the highest standards and facilities that are certified by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) to produce our soaps with OTC ingredients. We needed a team that could help us differentiating our beauty bar from the competition and we knew this would be a crucial component to our success. 

We found that team in Twincraft Skincare, the same manufacturer that developed thousands of different soap formulations over the years, including Erno Laszlo, Estée Lauder, Clinique, Philosophy, Burt’s Bee’s, Bliss, Victoria Secret’s and Origins. Together, we worked hand-in-hand for over a year to perfect our aesthetics, performance, all-natural additives and fragrances. We then performed custom engineering tests on our bars to analyze wear rate, foam volume, foam stability, wet cracking, stability in various conditions and ingredient concentration—all to bring you the best product possible. 

Here is some information about the soaps (from Kickstarter):

Our Marie Ernst™ soaps combines the full strength of two individually purposed soaps into one. The pumice half of our soap softens and removes your unwanted aging dead skin cells that make you look old and the emollient half renews your skin cells with deeper moisturizing absorbtion. 

Our dual purposed soaps provide the ultimate sensory experience in scent and texture. Made with 100% full strength in each half bar and the highest quality ingredients and essential oils, all of our products are:

Final thoughts:
