I'm very happy with this soap overall: It's extremely easy to work with (melts quickly in the microwave), shows off colors beautifully, and the scents always come through as expected. It also lathers very well, even in our hard water, which is a rarity. Just as a heads up, the soap does have a yellowish tint and a bit of an odor out of the box; however, neither the tint nor odor sticks around in the finalized product, once other scents/colors have been added. I also confirmed with The Flaming Candle that this is normal and nothing to worry about. In other words, don't be put off by it; it should still work perfectly.

I really enjoy working with this soap base. If you don't over scent or add extra additives it lathers beautifully. Very clear also.
