For March we had the largest number of Challenge Club members yet! Our technique was the drop swirl, which was definitely a popular one, as we had the highest percentage of members who submitted their soap as well. Members get three votes to spread out to their top three picks, excluding their own, and as you might imagine, choosing from 75 different entries was a rather difficult task! We had a very tight race up until the very end, but our grand prize winner took a margin of just three votes over second place. Congratulations goes to Zahida from Florida – once again!! She created a beautiful cold-process mixed with melt & pour drop swirl soap:
Zahida wins the $100 gift certificate from Majestic Mountain Sage – woo hoo!!!
Our second and third place winners were not far behind. In second place we have Maya from Tokyo, Japan with her gorgeous ylang ylang and patchouli drop swirl soap:
Third place goes to Lisa from Sydney, Australia. Her drop swirl soap was inspired by a dragonfruit! She used yuzu fragrance and some poppy seeds to mimic the dragonfruit seeds.
Maya and Lisa will receive free registration to next month’s Soap Challenge Club which will begin again on Monday! If you’d like to see the rest of the Challenge Club drop swirl soaps, you can check them out HERE.
