I love these soaps and I want to give them 5 stars because of the quality and cuteness of them - they're adorable! However, I am not happy with the construction of the kit and the instructional video, being a beginner soaper. First of all, the kit says it makes about 8 soaps. I was only able to make 6 and that was with not filling the molds to the top. There is enough colorant and fragrance to make more, but 1lb. of clear base was not enough. Second, the kit comes with 1oz. of the Santa Spruce Fragrance, but nowhere in Ann's video did she mention when to add it (I assume it was not used). She also does not mention how much colorant to add, so I guesstimated that; the colors turned out great, but, again, as a beginner, it would have been nice to have something to go off of. Overall, I do love these soaps. Just felt the above needed to be added.
I absolutely love these gingerbread man soaps! They are cute, creative, and so fun to make! This kit contains everything you need to get started, which makes setup a cinch, and you can get to the fun part of crafting the soaps right away. I would say this is an easy - intermediate project. Whenever I make these, I can't wait until they're set so I can pop them out of the mold! Plus, Anne-Marie's video tutorial is so inspirational. Her demonstration makes the project easy and clear to understand. I have also made the gift boxes shown in the video. They make these gingerbread men so much more neat and festive, though the soaps are amazing just as they are! These gingerbread man soaps make wonderful Christmas gifts to family and friends, which I love too, since these are a gift I can make!
