Etsy Haul Part 1 – Old Wives’ Tale Soaps

I’ve recently been trading a lot with other Etsy sellers. It’s given me a chance to get handmade gifts for my friends & family, get to know my fellow Etsy sellers, & find some great items. In all I’ve really enjoyed it. I’m going to take the next few posts to go over some of the things I’ve got already.

The first person I traded with is Jessica of Old Wives’ Tale Soaps. From the beginning Jessica was extremely friendly & her customer service is excellent. I traded with her for two lotion bars, which are shown in the picture above. She has a wonderful selection of scents in her shop. I chose Victorian Rose (the rose), & Aloe Rain (the other round bar).

Victorian Rose has a soft rose scent that reminds me of my grandmother. Aloe Rain is perhaps my favorite. The bars are thick and very similar to a soap bar, however, when you rub the bar on your skin it softens with your body heat. When you initially touch the bars, you might get the impression that they leave behind a greasy residue. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it does the opposite. It instantly softens your skin and leaves a pleasant scent. The bars also make incredible carpet cleaners. I dropped it once and it picked up everything within a two foot radius. Ok, so maybe that’s an exaggeration. I did spend about five minutes trying to get the carpet fuzz of it. Overall, I was highly satisfied & will definitely be getting more in the near future. I seriously suggest you check her shop out.

About Dark Heart Designs

I make loose eye shadows, pressed eye shadows, lip slicks (lip gloss), and more. I also love writing, crafting and animals. I paint my own furniture, make my own curtains, decorations, clothing, and costumes. I'm currently living in South Georgia, but I’ve been all over the east coast since I grew up in the carnival industry. When you’re on the other end of the carnival, selling bright pink cotton candy, rainbow sno kones, and those lovely, red candy apples, you realize that on the midway, it’s all about how bright and flashy you can be. I think that’s what brought about my love of bright colors and dark contrasts. There’s nothing in this world like a carnival at night. My mission is to make beautiful, affordable cosmetics, and help people along the way. Dark Heart Designs is more than just a cosmetics company. I want it to be a resource, an inspiration, and a brand that makes you feel like you're a part of something. Make up is just the beginning.

  1. I traded with her too! I got a bath bomb for a friend's Christmas gift. It smells amazing and the packaging was the best I received so far from an Etsy seller. I won't even need to wrap it!

  2. Thanks for the comment Nicole! I looove the smell of the lotion bar. I don't think I'm ever going to be using anything else now. I'm curious about the bath bomb too now. 🙂

  3. Thank you for the blog spotlight. IT means a lot! Your blog is awesome 🙂
