One Hand Washes The Other Review

One Hand Washes The Other, or OHWTO for short, makes bath and body products by hand. I wanted to try the Black Magic soap, which has been praised as an excellent facewash. I recently ran out of Lush Fresh Farmacy face soap, and wanted to try something new after trying to replace it with Coalface that didn't work so well. I want something I can wash my eye makeup off as well, Coalface had too large exfoliating particles to go anywhere near my eyes. I ordered the Black Magic soap in a tube, since I felt that would be the most hygienic choice and I wouldn't have to work it like a bar to get some foam.

I also looked into the perfumes, since I don't have many of those and was interested to try some. I picked a seasonal winter scent, I Smell Like A Witch. The perfume oil was out of stock so I chose the solid scent. About a week later, the perfume oil came back to stock, so I sent Becca a message if I could swap the solid scent for the oil. I got a quick answer and an invoice for the few dollars the oil cost more.

I've ordered from the company before via Artfire and got solid scents that I use regularly.

I placed my order on 1st of February and it arrived (to Finland) on the 23rd, which I felt was really fast. Everything was packed well and secure. I got the products I ordered, two samples and an extra lip balm. A printed copy of my order was included in a nice sealed envelope and there were stickers, a lollipop and a large business card in the bubble mailer.

Look at all the stuff! And the DOLPHIN.

I Smell Like A Witch perfume oil, Very Berry lip butter, Black Magic soap in a tube and two solid scent samples.

I'm really rubbish at describing scents, but I Smell Like A Witch is really candy-like in the bottle, but the patchouli comes out better on (my) skin. It's really nice and not too overpowering. Even though my boyfriend said I smelled like an old lady, I'm going to continue using it ;P I can't think of anything old lady -like in the smell!

This is how it's described on the site: "Red & White Roses, Cotton Candy, Bubble Gum, Smoke, Sandalwood, Patchouli & Vanilla Bean"

Very Berry lip butter smells divine, like strawberries and raspberries, very sweet and yet light. Goes on the lips well and moisturises nicely. A good, basic lip balm with a very nice smell.

The Black Magic soap smell like herbs and left my skin feeling really clean the first time I used it. I can't say anything about how it affects my skin yet, but the tube is easy to use and the soap cleans well and smells good.

The solid scent samples were 1605 (which I already had from my previous order) and Raspberry Gingerale. Raspberry Gingerale is really fresh and even a bit sour, like sour candy. It smells divine! I love raspberries and sour candy ;P I gave 1605 to my other half, since he had already gotten the last 1605 I had and it's more his type of a smell, heavy and musky. It's really nice, just not me.

I liked everything I got and felt the pricing was reasonable and shipping fast. I'll try if the soap suits my skin, and if it does, I'll be sure to order more and grab a few more amazing scents to go!

  1. I loved Black Magic, like you, I got in in the tube - I think it lasted two months. Must order some more, along with 'Raspberry Ginger Ale' because it sounds gorgeous :)

  2. Yay I'm glad you like I Smell Like a Witch! I use the olive oil version of the bar of black magic. I can't live without it. It's helped to clear up the giant pores on my face when nothing else would. Plus it makes my skin squeak. >.>
