Closed: Spencer's Farm Natural Goat Milk Soap Review/Giveaway!

This giveaway is now closed. Our winner, chosen via random.org, is Marija! Congrats!
Just some of the soaps carried by Spencer's Farm!
 Call me crazy, but I think smelling different soaps is one of the most fun things to do in a gift shop or store. I love trying all different kinds of flavors, and finding one that matches the real scent perfectly! That’s why I’m so happy about my new favorite soap shop: Spencer’s Farm Goat Milk Soap and Body Products!! I received the Lavender Soap to review for Not One Ordinary Moment. Not only does the soap from Spencer’s Farm smell amazing, but it leaves the scent on your hands for a long period of time without drying them out!

Spencer's Farm
From Spencer’s Farm: "My name is Susan Katchur.  I am the owner of natural-goat-milk-soap.com. Sydne Spencer is the owner of Spencer's Farm.  We are business partners. Spencer's Farm raises dairy goats on their twenty acre farm in Taft, TN. Alpine and Saanen dairy goats provide the fresh goats milk used in homemade products:  soaps, lotions, creams, scrubs, shampoo, etc...  All of Spencer's Farm products are paraben-free with no damaging sulfates.

"Spencer's Farm has been in business since 1999.  We are professionals in the soap making business.  Our goat milk soaps are sold around the world.  We teach how to make soap across the southeast USA!  Find us at demonstrations, workshops, in-person soap classes and on a soap making DVD:
http://www.natural-goat-milk-soap.com/how-to-make-soap.html  

Learn more about Spencer's Farm from a downloadable free brochure:

pictures of the sample-size Lavender soap I received!
The first thing I noticed about this soap was the way it looked. The lavender soap is creme-colored with streaks of lavender, and reminded me of those crystal stones with color streaked through them. The size was perfect for a hand soap, (some name-brand soaps are just too big!) and Angie didn’t have trouble holding it at all. The soap itself wasn’t waxy at all, which is something else that can take away from a hand-soap. 
   
As for the smell, I could sense the lavender even before I took the bar out of the plastic that it arrived it. I encouraged my family to smell the soap through the packaging just because I was so excited about the scent! The lavender scent was beautiful, and definitely something you would want to have your hands smell like. I can’t stand the smell of harsher soaps, like Dove’s hand-soap, so the smell of this hand-soap was very refreshing!

Of course, I wanted to make sure the soap washed my hands as well, and didn’t just make them smell good. I think one of the best ways to judge a soap or body wash is by how many bubbles it creates, and how long the bubbles stay on the soap. The Spencer’s Farm soap passed my bubble test! It creates tons of bubbles while you’re washing your hands, and they stay on even when you set the soap back in the dish!

Lavender Liquid Soap
According to Spencer's Farm, "The lavender natural goat milk soap is handcrafted with the highest quality European lavender oils and a tiny touch of Palmarosa oil, for a super nice scent with relaxing aromatherapy benefits.  The lavender natural goat milk soap is available in bar and liquid form."
   
One of the goats on Spencer's Farm!
Two of the coolest things about soap from Spencer’s Farm is that 1. It’s all natural and 2. It’s made with milk from the goats on Spencer’s Farm! I love that there aren’t any of the harsh chemicals in this soap that you might find in generic brands, and Angie loved it when I told her this soap came from a real goat! The milk actually comes from female Alpine and Saanen goats.

Spencer's Farm newest Alpine goat, Ezekiel, who is 4 months old.
“Recent studies show that goat milk can actually aid in regenerating collagen under the skin, negating some of the visible signs of aging. Goat milk soap is extremely moisturizing due to the humectant or moisture attracting properties of milk, the beneficial medium chain fatty acids abundant in goat milk, and the combination of skin nourishing oils that compliment the goat milk. In addition, if the soap is made using the “cold process” it does not allow the temperature to rise very far above body temperature, so all the beneficial vitamins in the original ingredients are still contained in the soap.” - Spencer’s Farm
Since I loved this soap so much, I couldn’t wait to check out the other scents offered by Spencer’s Farm! Some of my favorites that I found were Blackberry & Vanilla, Pina Colada, Egyptian Musk, and Rain!

  13. Well, it would be pretty hard to pick with such creative fragrance names as Razzmataz and Essence. I'm curious as to what they smell like, but I would stick with something I know and love, like Lemongrass! I ADORE lemongrass.
