As I’ve promised you soap addicts for some time now, I intend to use the site to review & share my very favorite bath/body products, so today we will begin with products from the incredibly talented Britton, a fabulous young soap artist who hales from Portland, Oregon & who specializes in presenting only the best handmade, vegan,cruelty free, bath & body products. According to her bio on Etsy, Britton tried her first bar of handmade soap in 2007 and was surprised to discover what she’d been missing & thus began the vision which has become the Haus of Gloi.
Now to the product offerings! Haus of Gloi offers soaps made via the cold process method, sugar scrubs, bathing dusts, perfume oils & now lotions! To me, this is very important as I like to layer my scents.The shop gets high marks from me because they also offer sample sized versions of perfume,scrubs & lotions at very reasonable prices so that you can know if a particular product is right for you before committing to a full sized version, a very important & not to be overlooked consideration in these tight economic times.
Scent blends- Britton offers a wide variety of unique fragrance offerings & blends things in such a way that I’ve found myself loving scents I never thought would work on me.
Order turn around time- Haus of Gloi is very fast to ship & turn around time has always been well within what is stated on the shop home page.
Ease of communicating with seller- I’ve placed a few orders here & always had my questions answered promptly & cheerfully.
Packaging/shipping my orders have always arrived neatly boxed with product securely padded, scrubs have inner safety seals to prevent leakage, shipping rate are quite reasonable & excess shipping fees refunded!
Product presentation- Haus of Gloi labeling is lovely, very elegant, the shop gets bonus points here as sample sizes, also come in lovely containers with full labeling. If you’ve ever struggled trying to decipher the teeny, tiny labeling on a sample vial of perfume you will so appreciate the label tags on Haus of Gloi sample perfumes.
Samples – despite the fact that Britton offers very generous & reasonably priced sample sized products a free sample is included in every order.
A few pictures of my most recent order & a picture of a limited edition bar of soap that I’ve been hoarding. Sorry for not including other soap pictures but I love Haus of Gloi soaps so much I tend to put them into immediate rotation in my shower.
