Lemony Snicket- Face Wash Bar (Acne prone skin)


This is a great facial soap for oily skin. Lemon is a natural solvent, dissolving acne-causing bacteria from your skin. The poppy seeds offer a gentle exfoliation, removing dead skin cells and leaving you with a fresh polished feel. A high percentage of avocado oil ensures this soap is extra gentle and will not dry out your skin.

TAKING CARE OF YOUR HANDMADE SOAP: handmade soap needs a little more care than its chemical-laden counterparts. As it is full of all the natural oils, it needs to be well drained when using. The less of the soap touching a flat, wet surface – the better, so choose a good soap dish.
When you are storing your soap (before using), put somewhere dry. Don’t store in a damp bathroom. Many of my customers enjoy storing their soap in their clothes draws, using them to infuse their lovely scents into their clothes. Or cut a slice off and hang in a muslin bag in your car, the scent will last for ages and you will always have an emergency bar of soap if needed on the road!

INGREDIENTS: saponified oils of; coconut, olive, ricebran, castor, avocado, shea butter & cocoa butter; Northland rain water; turmeric; poppy seeds; therapeutic grade essential oils of; lemon & may chang.

Cold Pressed soap is different from what you will find in your local supermarket if you look after these well we know you will fall in love! The smell alone is devine and make a great air freshener or addition to your bathroom or clothes draw!

Cold process soap making is a scientific process of combining oils with an alkali substance (lye) which results in a chemical reaction called saponification. Once saponification is complete, there is neither oil nor lye remaining in the soap. To produce a nice moisturising bar Fair and Square add a ‘superfat’ value of 7-8% which refers to the extra oils which aren’t bound up in the saponification process. These oils provide the moisturising effect that you don’t get with commercially made soap bars.

After making the soaps, they sit and cure for at least six weeks to ensure a nice, hard, long-lasting bar with a rich lather.

They are all handmade in small batches, and hand cut, hand bevelled and hand packaged so each bar will vary slightly in size, shape and appearance to the photo, but all are full of the same skin loving ingredients!


Lemony Snicket- Face Wash Bar (Acne prone skin)

Small batch hand-crafted artisan soap. Made with love using all natural ingredients. Tutukaka Coast, Northland, NZ

Fair Square Soapery was born out of a desire to create high quality, luxury products for everyday use.  I have always been intrigued with how our ancestors lived wholesome, simple and often very healthy lives, and take real pride in creating a product that has been in manufacture since the beginning of human civilisation. A lot has changed in the last few thousand years of technological progression, but soap has always been a main stay in the course of the human life.

The traditional technique of cold process soap making is both a science and an art and I love the challenge that this brings to every small batch I make. I am passionate about creating a product with natural ingredients because nature has such an abundance of stunning products to offer. And of course by refraining from the chemicals and synthetic fragrances you can be sure that it is good for your body and the environment.

I am a mother to two young children, wife to a wonderful husband and carer and friend to a host of animals on our small lifestyle block on the eastern coast of Northland, New Zealand. I make my soaps from the kitchen of our small home with the dream of one day having a beautiful purpose built studio.

It is my dream to one day be able to make a living doing something that makes my customers and myself very happy. To everyone who has supported me over the years; I can’t express enough gratitude that you have helped path the way for this to become a reality, so THANK YOU!
