Victorian Rose Soap Co. Review & Giveaway

by Mama Chocolate on June 13, 2011



When Karen contacted me about reviewing their goat-milk soaps, I was excited!
I’ve occasionally heard of the loveliness and luxury of goat-milk soaps, but couldn’t remember ever actually using any!
The Victorian Rose Soap Co. has so many options to choose from, including their scented collection, their all-naturals, and their adorable children’s soaps.  They even have body butters!
I had an incredibly hard time choosing, but I ended up with the Chocolate Vanilla Cut Bar, (it was chocolate, how could I resist?)

I wish I had more pictures of all the soaps…but I was too eager to get them into use…and so was my 2-year-old Katie! I opened the package and set them on the table, went to do something and came back to find her unwrapping them all!
“Soap? Wash hands?”
I shoulda picked one of those kitty soaps! That would have got her really excited!
(see the website for some beautiful photos of the soaps!)
We love them all! I think the Lavender Patchouli oval-shaped one is my favorite. Both for it’s scent and lovely appearance! (You can get different scented soaps in that same mold, also!)
The website describes it has having just a hint of a woodsy scent, and it’s a very accurate description!
We’ve used the soaps in our bathrooms, in our kitchen and in our baths and showers!
I love that the goat milk helps the soap to be less drying to your skin than regular bar soap.
Here’s a little more about the company from their website:

* * * * * * * * 

We handcraft Goat’s Milk Soaps with all the finest ingredients. We use the highest quality oils of Coconut, Olive, Palm, Canola, and Castor. We make our soaps with 100% Goat’s Milk, Goat’s milk enriches the skin adding nutrients and is becoming one of the most sought after body care treatments worldwide!


We add butters of Shea and/or Cocoa for added smoothness, and for the  vitamins and minerals they contain.


We select our scents for their mood enhancing qualities and hand blend them into each of our scented soaps.


Many of our designs are from the very romantic time period of the Victorian Era.


Our soaps are Natural, Enviromentally friendly, and Completely Handcrafted

I loved getting to know Karen and her family a little during our correspondence! I knew their suffering instantly felt a bond, just knowing that they are goat farmers! My sister and I raised goats from when we were about 7 and 9 right up until I got married and moved out!
Besides the soap company that Karen and her daughter Emmeline run, they also raise cows, sheep, horses, and organically-grown produce in Coastal Oregon.
They raise kids, too. 8 of ‘em! They’re fellow Christian homeschoolers and Karen was excited to learn that I was a “daughter of Doorposts!”
I am excited to tell you about their company and encourage you to stop by and check out their selection and also their blog for updates on the farm and family!
