Cool Hand Cuke
So I bought this scent Cucumber Mint on a total whim. I love the smell of mint in my soap. It's so refreshing and invigorating, and I try to use the scent every opportunity I get. I've always liked the Bath and Body Works cucumber scent because I think it smells really "clean" so here we are!
Cool Hand Cuke is a CPOP (cold processed oven processed) soap. While I love that CPOPing shortens the cure time, I'm not always pleased with the alligator texture of the soap once it's finished doing it's thing. In this case though it works. It's a rough and rugged soap on the outside, but cool as a cucumber inside...
These blocks are quite hefty too, and I'm not going to trim them at all. I like it as is. It's supposed to be rugged and raw. Since green is my favorite color, I couldn't wait to make this soap. I'm saving one for my own green bathroom.
