These guys have fantastic product.. and while I haven't used any of it to see how long it lasts... on face value ... I would suggest it is overpriced by 30% compare to craft soaps available in markets around Brisbane... perhaps it's the competition in...More

Hello Darrel P. This is Melissa, the owner of Washpool Soaperie. Let me explain why drawing a comparison between soap sold at a market and soap sold in a store owned and operated by the maker can be fraught with problems. As someone who sold...More

Absolutely love Washpool soaps, they smell divine and they last and last. Beautiful rich creamy lather and the essential oils provide amazing scents. I always bulk buy the seconds because I love chunks of rustic soap. Tried the goats milk soap too this time- love...More

Can't say I am much into soaps myself but the two wives of our group loved it. Bought a couple of dozen soaps and were happy. The girl in the shop was lovely, engaging and knowledgeable.

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review BJ784. I am so glad your partners enjoyed their visit. Perhaps I will convert you next time with my "all soap is not created equally" talk. 😉

We really weren't sure what to expect as we turned off the New England Highway at Ballandean and headed into this store, but were extremely happy that we followed our noses towards Washpool Farm Soaperie. Very impressive range of top quality soaps, yes definitely (we...More

Found this amazing soaperie in Ballandean, QLD. They hand make all their soaps and use absolutely no nasty chemicals etc! Their soaps are beautiful, generously sized and they're not super expensive! I love their facial soaps (I admittedly use it all over my body) and...More

As soon as we entered the building you could smell the beautiful smell of all the soaps. After purchasing some we were given a choice of a piece to sample. I have been using it for a couple of weeks and enjoy the smell every...More

Like the famous 'Oils ain't oils' ad, soap made by hand with heaps of healthy oils and butters is nothing like the commercial soap. We're so glad you visited the soaperie and are enjoying our handmade bars. If you can't get back to re-stock the...More

Lovely place to visit and get a piece of the country to take home. Reasonably priced soaps and souvenirs. A place to put on the list to visit.

Hello Alicia, thank you for your 5/5 review. The weather has been frosty of late so we're looking forward to spring time when the fruit trees will be blossoming again.

Lovely shop with a large and varied selection of soaps and other delightful smelling products. I actually purchased no soap...what caught my eye instead was a room spritzer and a fabulous tea towel. My girlfriends bought the soap :) Well worth a visit!
