As I am new to melt and pour, pretty much any project intimidates me. This kit was very easy, had great instructions and the Yuzu fragrance smelt terrific! Just remember to spray between each layer your alcohol otherwise you may lose one! (I forgot and the top layer popped off!). I also found it easier to pre-chop the soap and have everything set out. I melted it in 1lb increments and that worked well for me. The colors are very pretty, lots of suds and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this.
I loved doing this project i am new to soaping the only thing that made me nervous was this was the first time i used a loaf mold and there was no advise on the video or on the instructions on how long before you unmold it that might be a good addition to the instructions for us newbies.
I made my first batch of soap over the weekend as a test run for some wedding favors...now I am hooked. I cannot wait to make my next batch of soap. The soap turned out great and the smell is amazing, everyone loves the smell. I purchased the non-bleeding teal to use instead of pink. I would recommend double checking that the written instructions are in the box. They were e-mailed upon request, but were not swirling directions...the video is great, but written info would be nice. I would also suggest either including droppers and scoops in the kit or a note to add them before checking out—newbies don't have supplies or may forget to the smaller items.
