I read the reviews & thought I would give it a try I have never made soap before but love making other things. I followed the instructions to the letter, I was disappointed.
The coconut oil was solid I spent ages melting it in the bottle in hot water (I didn't want to put the bottle in the microwave) then I decided to weigh the items, in case I wanted to make some more. The amounts do not correspond with the amounts that it states in the instructions, they were quite a bit less, especially the shea butter, sunflower oil & coconut oil but I carried on and eventually made something that resembles soap after a few adjustments, now all I have to do it wait for up 2 -3 weeks for it to cure. I don't think I would recommend this kit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by CjxXx Upon opening up the product the parts inside were damaged and opened unsealed
Came very quickly but not happy with the product as it appeared to have already been opened and the soap base was damaged inside the box

I went instore looking for the hobbycraft clear soap base to be told that it had been discontinued and not stocked anymore, however after a staff member spending time asking what i needed it for, explained that i had just had an ides to start about soap making. They showed me all of the different items instore, the soap petals and all the different colours and fragrances they do and pointed me in the direction of the kirsty allsop soap making kit and added it would be all i needed to get started. After purchasing i felt aprehensive at it being all i needed. However when using it i found the kit to be well worth the money. All the ingredience were easy to use and the instructions easy to follow. I made the soap successfully. I will be continuing to make soaps, will use hobbycraft for my colours, fragrances and petals etc. Excellent staff :-)

I bought this product as I thought the kit would be exact instead of buying items so paid abit extra. She says stir for ten mins then break and again ten mins, at five mins it was like mashed potato
and pouring as instructed was impossible. Has she actually made this soap? Filled the plastic box and made around six bun cases so disappointed. Dried and still looks rough but when you cut it looks like soap and is smooth but could not give as a present.

I was thrilled with the product. The soap was very easy to make with easy instructions for a beginner. The finished soap looks and smells amazing! I highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mary77 Good starter kit but measure first
This is a good starter kit with proper instructions. My only negative point would be that should you wish to pursue soap making, the instructions provided do not give the ratio/quantities of each components required (some of the bottles provided are not even full, so can't use those as a guide later on). So before pouring everything together, measure the quantities provided in the kit for future reference.

Wrong labelling on jar ! No instructions to let cool before cooling due to slight warping of container !
