Welcome to the ninth edition of my Supporting Small Businesses series. Something I like to treat myself to, especially during lockdown, is a relaxing bath. I’m very particular with what bath goodies I use due to having sensitive skin, so I usually stick to what I know.
One day in late December, while waiting for Lush UK’s website to behave so I could access their sale, I came across a tweet recommending GeekyClean. With such a great play on words for a company name, I decided to check them out.
GeekyClean is based in Chelmsford and was born out of its owner stumbling upon soap making as a hobby and then mixing in their love of all things geeky. Every product they sell is 100% handmade in England using the finest ingredients. They also make sure their products are kind on skin by not using any harsh chemicals. The products are vegetable-based and vegan so they contain no animal products and haven’t been tested on animals.
GeekyClean sells bath bombs, bath salts, soaps, body butter, lip balms, shower steamers and more. I had not heard of shower steamers before, but apparently, you throw them in the water during your shower and let the steam go to work. GeekyClean sells a “Con Flu Remedy” one, perfect for a pick me up during or after a convention (as anyone who attends conventions can attest, you often feel run down afterwards!). Once we can get out into the real world again, that one will be on my list of things to try!
At the time of ordering, the GeekyClean website was due a restock, but I decided to place an order anyway. I chose the Bardic Inspiration Bath Bomb and a selection of soaps (Bard Soap, Wizard Soap, Sorcerer Soap and Health Potion Soap). You can never have too many soaps!
The Bardic Inspiration Bath Bomb is bubblegum & candyfloss scented and smells divine! At £10.99 this isn’t the cheapest bath bomb you’ll come across, but this isn’t just any old bath bomb. Fans of RPGs (Role Playing Games) such as D&D (Dungeons & Dragons) will be delighted to discover it contains a set of RPG dice! When popped into the bathwater, the delicious scent fills the bathroom and the bathwater turns a vibrant pink. I didn’t want to get out afterwards! Just a tip though: Just be aware of where those RPG dice are when you get in the bath!
There are plenty of other bath bombs to choose from, others also containing a set of RPG dice and some cheaper ones without.
The soaps are great! Each soap comes in its own tin which is brilliant for when we can go travelling again or even for just keeping the bathroom clean & tidy. They can also be used for other things once you’ve finished the soap. The GeekyClean soaps contain no Sodium Laureth Sulfate or Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, so are kinder to your skin. My skin felt lovely and soft after using GeekyClean soap.
Much like the Bardic Inspiration Bath Bomb, the Bardic Soap is bubblegum & candyfloss scented. Just remember it’s a soap, so try not to eat it! Not only does this soap smell great, but it lasts a long time too. Definitely worth £4.99. I’ll be ordering more of this one!
Each product page has its own reviews, so you can easily check out what others think of each of the products.
Although I’m stocked up on soaps to keep me going for a while, I’ll definitely be ordering from GeekyClean again as I’ve spotted some more of their products which I’d like to try out. Whether you’re a geek or not, GeekyClean products are worth giving a go. GeekyClean ship worldwide and restock their products every Sunday at 6pm GMT/BST.
Get yourself GeekyClean and support a small business at the same time!
