First off, these smell amazing. I haven't used any of the soaps, and probably never will, but that doesn't stop me from admiring them and taking a sniff. The best way to use these soaps are to place one in a soap mesh bag, which is also known as a soap saver. Since these soaps are relatively pricey, you'll want to make the most use out of them.
The bath salts came in a pretty and delicate clear container. The salts itself looks like little rocks with various shades of colors. The salts are bigger than the tiny bath salts I'm used to seeing. However, I prefer it this way since I can see the rocks and colors much better. Plus, I'm probably not going to be using them anyway.
My verdict: The price for this set was 4,500 yen + tax and shipping. Before I realized these were soaps, I actually thought it was a set of gem stones based on the Inner Senshi, Tuxedo Mask, and Shitennou. I finally read the description and found out they were soaps instead. I was a little less enthusiastic, but I personally love handmade soaps, so I ordered them anyway. They do look very much like gem stones in person, and I really love the scents. It is relatively pricey, especially since the individual soaps are not very big. Honestly, I would say this is more a collector's item than for practical use. What do you think?
