Scent

· Witch Doctor: These are made with the same base as all of our soaps, and include the coconut and lime zest as described. We forgot to add fragrance though, so they are unscented. It should be noted that the presence of coconut in the soap may give the bars a very slight coconut scent.

· Siren: Some holes in soap are not such a bad thing. Like artisan bread, some air pockets can really say "handmade." But when the holes are of a certain size, you might rightfully assume that we were supposed to sell you an ENTIRE bar of soap, not just part of one. Some of our last batch of Siren came out with holes large enough for us to feel like they should go in the abomination pile. All else is normal - scented, with the sand exfoliator.

· Winter Wolf: Like the Siren, the Wolf had a bad batch with too many holes. There's nothing wrong with them - this just means the soap batter was a little thick when it went into the molds, leaving little pockets of air. But as you can see from the photo, some of the holes were a bit too big to go into the Stash, so those are being sold here.

Special Properties

MONSTER is a small business. Seriously, we're a couple of gothy weirdos in southern Washington making soap and beard oil out of our (very) modest workshop. We can make some seriously excellent quality products for you. We can also royally f*** up a batch.

Abominations are the soaps we made where something went wrong, but the soap is still perfectly useable. Examples include forgetting to add fragrance (soap is fine, just unscented), bars that were cut crooked (all else is fine, just looks obviously messed up), or bars with holes in them (this happens when the batter goes into the molds too thick and air pockets remain). 

In other words, these are our "uglies."

We don't want to lose money on the mistakes, so we're offering them up to you here at a pretty sweet discount. You get bargain soap, and we can recoup some of the costs of our mistakes. It's a win-win!

    A Word on Exfoliating Soaps

    At MONSTER Flesh & Mane, we use four grades of exfoliation in our soaps.

    None
    These soaps do not have any exfoliation ingredients and thus require no special instructions.

    Light
    With the finest grit, the exfoliating ingredients in these soaps will gently scrub away dead skin from the topmost layer. Less effective, but great for daily use. Use as normal.

    Moderate
    These soaps have slightly coarser grit, or harder bits that will exfoliate a bit harder. If you just scrub away with these, you may cause some irritation and scratching of your skin. Slow it down a bit.

    Heavy
    The exfoliating ingredients in these soaps are coarse or especially hard, and will seriously abrade away dead skin. Use slow, deliberate circles when scrubbing with these soaps. Not for every day use; use only as needed.
