The Hand Made Soap Co.

L  €14.95  R €9.95
The Hand made Soap Company was founded in 2009 by Donagh Quigley and Gemma McGowan.
Whilst travelling around Australia, Donagh visited a market selling handmade soaps and felt inspired to create a range of home made products upon his return to Salne, Co. Meath, Ireland.
All products are 100% natural, free from parabens and petrochemicals.

We are blown away by the beautiful packaging these products came in.
Beautiful quirky drawn images detailing the amazing scents within. A very simple concept that draws you in immediately.

The brand is categorised into three main scents of Grapefruit, Lavender and Rosemary and Cedarwood and Lemongrass.
They also offer a shaving range for ladies and gents and a gardeners range aimed at hands that are more used to pulling up weeds and ingrained dirt!


For our dry skin the Body Butter with Shea Butter and essential oils of Grapefruit and May Chang was heaven scent.
In a glass 200ml tub this obviously smells amazing but massages into the skin leaving a luxurious dry oil like finish.
Kernel oil, Almond oil and Sunflower oil nourish and rehydrate a dry skin type whilst Aloe Vera soothes a sensitive skin.

The shower gel we tried was a 300ml pump action gel infused with Cedarwood and Lemongrass. The plastic bottle was also labelled with the same beautiful images and writing.

Often Lemongrass scented products can smell clinical or remind you of insect repellent but the Cedarwood really cuts through the citrus and gives it a more baked  aroma. 
It smells like it would taste amazing!
I maybe crazy but there is something very comforting about a good old bar of soap. Having been warned my entire adult of the drying effects of soap it’s a luxury that I feel has become quite antiquated.
Bring back the soap I say, especially when they look and feel as lovely as this one.
110g bar of waxy feeling soap where extracts of the ingredients are visibly infused inside.
I wouldn’t use this on my face however but for your hands and body it is just as moisturising to use as a shower gel.

 They also do minature kits that have a selection of products in perfect mini 50ml sizes.

 There is something very old fashioned and comforting about this range and you can tell that brand and ingredients were born out of a passion to create natural, great quality products.

To get your hands on these and much more from the range check out their website on


  1. I love the look of that body butter :D The packaging is all so pretty

  2. Thanks pixiwoo for supporting the irish company..from an irish subscriber

  3. This looks fantastic! I'm all for natural, paraben-free products. But usually those products look very "eco" and "green" and nowhere near as beautiful as these! Thanks for sharing :)
