OK.  So we will do alphabetical starting with Gina's gorgeous looking soap
once everyone confirms they have received their packages.  Once we have
started discussing Gina's I will ask for a consensus on when to move on to
the next.

Remember that this about experiencing different ways to soap so discussion
should be constructive.  You should be open to discussing things you don't
like about the soap as well and we should all be able to take that like
adults.  Expectations are different in different people.

I would like to propose a general framework around this so we all have a
systematic way to start off.  So this is what I will be looking for and
commenting on:

INITIAL VISUAL IMPRESSION
- did you go "oooh, pretty", "Wow, stunning", "Hmmm, odd", "professional",
"I'm not sure I want to let that near my skin" (as examples)
- would you buy by the looks of the product or move on

PACKAGING
- What did you think of the way the bar was packaged
- Did the labelling work for you

THE SOAP (non shower/bath experience)
- Did you like the look of the soap and, if so, what was it that you like or
disliked
- What did you think of the size of the soap
- What did you think of the shape of the soap
- Comments on the colour
- What did you think of the scent of the soap (before using)
- any comment on texture/feel of the soap (before using)

THE SOAP (shower/bath experience)
- how did the soap lather
- how did the soap feel
- any comments on the hardness of the bar
- any further comments on scent as you use it
- if there were any scrubby inclusions, how did they feel.
- any sensitivity/reaction to the soap?

And anything else you would like to add.

Thanks

Ross

If we do alphabetical by first name (including contracted names) it would
be:

Gina
Liz
Louise
Mandy
Mary
Ross
Ruth

Let me know if that is how you would like to proceed
