Research is often fun

Sometimes when I’m looking for inspiration (or looking to figure out what new trends are) I check out a shop not to far from my house that is a nationwide seller of soaps and other products. You can buy soaps by the ounce in many “flavors”, or buy a whole bar of it as well as bath products, lotions and skin care items.

Sometimes I will take samples that they offer and take them home and study them. What is it that gives it it’s characteristic look and feel (usually they have a sign that says what it’s made from, and if not I mention types of oils I’m sensitive to and ask what is in their soaps).

It gives me a break from the daily grind and also allows me to see other trends that are out there. I enjoy seeing what others create and how the competition is doing.
