DIY Perfectly Posh Pump Soap

I love making stuff at home, but I’ll admit that I’m a sucker for reliable brands that do exactly what I want without the work. I’ve had some successes here and there, but I really dig being able to share ideals with a big brand. It makes me feel part of a community of people with the same ideas about health and beauty. And that, my friends, is powerful.

My good friend Becki started selling Posh products a little over a year ago. Call me mean, but I first blew it off thinking a “new Avon” was afoot. Well it was soon I found that Posh was way more than that. Perfectly Posh prides itself in pampering without all the complicated icky ingredients in most of the products you might find today. And I love that it’s affordable, too!

If you’re as lucky as I am to have friends behind such amazingly yummy goodies, then you get a lot of opportunities for samples at your door…

Well I have something against bar soap, so I decided I was going to convert all my Posh samples to liquid hand soap. This week I took my Perfectly Posh Spawesome chunk and converted it into pump soap!

You’ll need a small sauce pan, your 1 ounce sample chunk (or one ounce of any sample soap), and one cup of water (per every ounce).

Things that will help you (not pictured): a cheese grater, a immersion blender, and a spoon.

First you need to grate your soap. I love how delicious Spawesome smells, and it has an amazing sheen and sparkle to it that just makes me feel fancy handling it!

Set the soap aside. In your tiny pot boil your water. Turn the heat off and add your grated soap, stirring often until all is melted.

Once it is melted let it sit for 5 minutes. Come back and stir it. Then let it sit for 10, stir again. Continue stirring every fifteen minutes for about an hour or so.

If it gets solid or chunky, never fear! That just means it needs more water. Although many bar soap to liquid soap recipes will suggest 1 cup water per every ounce of grated bar soap, moisture levels of bar soaps vary a bunch. It winds up trial and error, in the end.  This soap required a bit more liquid… about 3/4 cup!

To add more water, simply heat up to melt it all again (should be easy) and add more water. It can be deceiving as it’s more liquidy when it’s hot.

After a significant amount of cool down time, use an immersion blender to whip it into shape.

Let the mixture settle (this will get ride of most of the bubbles). Then use a funnel and pour into your soap dispenser of choice. You can find tons here at Amazon.com, but some people prefer plastic and others glass, etc.

As for me, I was perfectly happy reusing one that had emptied earlier this month.

I like to tape the label for my bar soaps and tape them on my pump soap to remind me of the amazing ingredients used. The Spawesome chunk is mint and eucalyptus with argan and baobab oils to moisturize!

Now washing up smells like a little mini dose of pampering!

(That makes escaping to the bathroom to poop alone even that much more exciting!)

In what ways do you make your little moments of “me time” awesome?

    I never knew you could do this with bar soap!! I love Posh! So far I haven’t found a scent I didn’t like!

  4. I love a good DIY! Thanks for sharing.

  5. I never thought of turning bar soap into liquid soap. I love your idea of putting the label onto the bottle as well. I always take the soap from hotels and never know what to do with it, so this is going to be my next project.

    • I snag all the tiny sample soaps, too! This would be a great way to utilize all that soap! Posh chunks smell sooo amazing though…
