Lip Balms:
"I got my order today! OMG. These soaps are so good 😭🥰🙌 And the chapsticks. The chapsticks!?!?! Are you kidding me right now. I HATE chapstick... took one for myself to give it a go (my lips have been hurting from the cold)... sold... pocket buddy forever!" -Stacey O. (Colorado)

"You are the best! I couldn't resist getting myself some more!!! <3 Thank you for being a master of your craft and putting your heart into it... it shows!!!" -Stacey B. (Loveland, CO)

"I REALLY love your products… my son had really chapped lips and within 24 hours they were smooth and healing after using one of your chapsticks from my stash. 5/5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️" Sarah H. (Spring, TX)

"I just got my shipment of lipbalms and I'm CRAZY about them!! OMG... I ordered a couple of different flavors and i have to say they are WONDERFUL!!! I am an ICU RN and my lips and hands suffer for it. I've used this lipbalm for 2 days now and my lips feel supple, soft and wonderful. I've used so many other lip balms and they've coated but not penetrated and healed. But this does! I just want to share my own experience and I hope you find it helpful! This is in my scrub pocket now! OMG seriously, my lips feel amazing! As a nurse, I have little time to hydrate during my shift. And I prefer to work my three shifts a week together. Eventually my lips and hands suffer. My lips now feel supple and soft and wonderful. My hands need to catch up!" -Angela R. (Indianapolis, IN)

"These lip balms are smooth and silky, with no sticky residue"-Renae R. (Valencia, CA)

"I am a total lip balm snob and yours is my new favorite. Smooth without sticky. Moisturizing and long lasting."-Tami H. (Valencia, CA)

"These lip balms are my all time favorite! They are moisturizing and hydrating and extremely effective. I love the silky and smooth texture along with the amazing scent. Lavender lemonade is my absolute favorite! I feel great putting Charlotte’s chapstick on my lips knowing that it is all natural! Definitely an amazing buy, I highly recommend!!!" -Mandi C. (Sonora, CA)

"These soaps and lip balms are amazing. They are pretty much all we use now." -Tanya H. (Poway, CA)

"I just tried my chapstick on a wound and it's healed within two days!! This stuff smells so good, doesn't exasperate my severe allergies/chemical sensitivity, and barely any amount needed to do an incredible job!! Love this! Got it from my secrete sister who is the best!!" -Wanda V. (Thornton, CO)

"Highly recommend if people are looking for mother's day swag - I am VERY picky about how stuff smells and the soaps and chapsticks smell fresh, light, and natural. I've gotten kind of addicted to the lemon drop chapstick..." -Anna H. (San Diego, CA)

 

Lotion Tubes:

"Lotion tubes are brilliant! I absolutely love mine. As someone who is constantly washing my hands either in the kitchen or while sewing, the tops of my hands get so dry. To be able to put lotion on without having to get it on my palms and fingers is amazing!" -Jeanette L. (Bridgewater, VA)

"Love love love the lotion bars and soaps❤️❤️ bonus that my family does too and they are so picky🥰 I highly recommend! Btw my daughter just reminded me that she loves the lip balms too😂 -Lynn G (Poway, CA)

"These are our family’s fave!!! You have to try the lotion bars! And don’t forget the lip balms! I’m so glad I found you last year, Charlotte! You have literally changed our skin! 😃❣️-Jasmine ardalann (Poway, CA)

"I have a testimonial!! I ordered the lip balm set and got four flavors and we LOVE THE LIP BALM!! we also go the lotion stick and I love using it while I am working because I can put right onto the back of my hands where it feels dry and not have to get the palms of my hands all lotiony/greasy- you know what I mean? It is fabulous!!! Thank you Charlotte you are a genius!!! 😉💕🌹" -Holly M. (Thornton, CO)

"I love mine! It is so calming on my skin after a day in the kitchen with so much hand washing." -Sharon (Thornton, CO)

"I got my order today and immediately placed another order.  The grapefruit lotion stick smells divine.  I'm very picky about lip products and am in love with the lip balm.  It goes on so smoothly.  Packaging and shipping were great and in a timely manner." -Laura H. (St. Louis, MO)

"The tubes are so handy and easy to use. Your skin doesn't feel wet after applying and your skin feels amazing. My acupuncturist even commented on how smooth and moisturized my legs looked." -Chris M. (Wheat Ridge, CO)

"I have two of those lotion tubes and I love them! I bought 2 of the Eucalyptus Spearmint. Love the smell and how my arms feel after using them." -Lacey G. (Poway, CA)

"I purchased the solid lotion tube and lip balm, and both products blew me away! I have really dry hands and get chapped lips easily, and both products seem to work super well for me. (Also, they smell amazing!!) Turnaround time was super quick too. Definitely recommend! " -Sarah L. (Eagan, MN)

"I highly recommend Charlotte and Soaps by a Chemist! For my mother’s birthday, I asked very last minute if she could deliver that day instead of ship and she made it happen! She also packaged the stuff I had ordered together into a separate bag with a ribbon. My mom loved all the stuff but especially the lotions." -Zarana Patel (Poway, CA)

"Your lip balm is my favorite! Being an ICU nurse working with COVID patients means I'm constantly masked and garbed up. Lips always dry out when I work because I can't drink as much water as I need. Your formulation helps me maintain a good moisture on my lips! My only balm I've opened and used is the peaches and coconut milk.... O... M... G... SISTER, you hit the mark! It's not so much about the scent as it is the function! I apply it first thing at work, and MAYBE once more during the day, but normally only once. My lips stay supple, soft and that's all I can ask for! Few applications and extended softness, and you deliver in spades! I can't answer for anyone else but me, but your lip balm overshadows all others for me!! Thank you so much!!! 💜💜💜" -Angela R. ((Indianapolis, IN)

 

Salt Bar Soaps:

"Love the satsuma salt bar for my feet! Just used it again, makes my feet soft again. And the scent is so simple but lovely and light."-Amy P. (Poway, CA)

 

Soaps: 

"I'm going to be placing another order with you soon for more soaps.  We've tried lots of soaps, and there must be something to a chemist who makes soaps :) Yours are our favorites!  My wife was just telling me this morning how much she loves the Autumn Fig Harvest.  You have a lot of descriptors for the scent on your site, but to us, it smells vaguely like a Christmas tree." -Howells Natural Wood Products (SUPPLIER OF MY SOAP DISHES)

I'm sure we've all gotten handmade soaps at one point or another in our lives but these really are amazing and so worth it! I'm actually getting ready to order again, this time for my brother and his wife and for my Dad and Stepmom. They're all very environmentally minded and try to cut out toxins as much as they can do I know they will appreciate these amazing products. Thank you, Charlotte Reininger for making such great products!" -Alexis F.

"I got my order today! OMG. These soaps are so good 😭🥰🙌 And the chapsticks. The chapsticks!?!?! Are you kidding me right now. I HATE chapstick... took one for myself to give it a go (my lips have been hurting from the cold)... sold... pocket buddy forever!" -Stacey O. (Colorado)

"I am obsessed with your soaps!!!  My family loves them too.  Which is great because it gets my boys to wash their hands more. It is so much better for my skin.

"Thank you @handmadesoapsbyachemist aka Charlotte for the beautiful soap! Did you know that handmade soap is better for you than your off the shelf brand.

Highly recommend because her soaps smell amazing, lather amazing, and they make my skin feel AMAZING!" -Taylor K. the Mermaid (Broadview Heights, OH)

"They look so gorgeous and I know smell amazing! I think of egg nog or hot cocoa scent [when I see the peppermint swirl soap]. PS. I'm in LOVE with your oatmeal bar soap with the seeds in it! It exfoliates my skin and feels amazing. Love all your creations ❤" -Sarah S. (San Antonia, TX)

"I wanted to reach out to you to tell you what you really deserve to know. Though I’ve always claimed to be a morning person, I hate to get up and ready. The whole shower, hair and makeup thing is what gets in the way of me loving mornings...until your soap. I love showering now. I look forward to an apple Jack or lavender lemonade morning and it gets me hopping out of bed. I recently bought a set of soaps, a dish and a lip balm for my boss for Boss’ Day. She was so happy! She raved about the lip balm, but she didn’t want to use up the soap. I promised her I’d replace them as she uses them just to get her to treat herself. So, you just deserve to know how your hobby has transformed my mornings and how it’s made my lovely boss feel worthy of luxury. Thank you. Thank you so very much. :)" -Tara C. (Poway, CA)

"These are such beautiful soaps! I bought a ton and they smell as good as they look. They make excellent gifts and are awesome to treat yourself. We can't travel as much with Covid, but these soaps bring all the smells of adventure instead. The Lilac smells like nostalgia. Dragon's Blood brings me back to the Renaissance festivals. I want to eat the Orange Poppyseed. They are all beautiful and I love them!" -Sarah S. (Eagle Mountain, UT)

"Love love love these soaps!! (And bath bombs!) And the chapsticks are so amazing as well if you need a new clean one!" -Ashley C. (Poway, CA)

"I desperately needed something to combat my dry hands and the lotion bar tubes were exactly what I needed! I love how easy it is, even my daughter is applying it to her hands! I also ordered the lip balm which (smells amazing) and is probably the best lip balm I’ve ever used! I will definitely be purchasing more!" -Alisha D. (Castaic, CA).
