Father’s Day special is here!

We have 7 boutique flavors ready to go for the special man in your life. Be it your father, husband, boyfriend, brother, or close friend, we have a special bar that is perfect for his taste! Feel free to swing by our shop or see us at next week’s Silver Street Flea (June 8-9) to take a smell and take advantage of our promo to buy 2+ bars and get 20% off your entire purchase!  This market is indoors in a nice air-conditioned warehouse in the arts district and will be packed with 90+ vendors with handmade, artisan, and boutique products and foods of all kinds. Bring your family, friends, and pup! It’s going to be a fun time 🤩

we will also be at the Bungalow Heights Sip & Shop evening event so you don’t have to stroll in the heat. Come on out for music and fun on 6/08 from 7-11pm!

A big thank-you to our Instagram followers thus far! We appreciate your support and helping us grow! Keep your eyes peeled for giveaways including products and free tickets to the Ultimate Women’s Expo in September! This event is going to be huge, full of girl power, and celebrity guest speakers. Don’t miss out 🙌♥️✨ 

lastly, for those with sensitive skin, we have a new product coming up towards the end of June we are calling Hemp & Oats, which is blended with your favorite organic and fair trade oils of olive, coconut, and castor, and then we added in unrefined hemp seed oil and gentle colloidal oatmeal. This bar is very natural and has a creamy texture. It is currently on pre-order from our site and in short supply so don’t forget to reserve your bar if you are a hemp lover or someone with sensitive skin looking for some relief.

Hope you are all staying cool as we get into the thick of this Houston heat, and cooling off in the nearest pool when you can. Until next time!

Be clean. Be well.

Happy Mother’s Day!

A very Happy Mother’s Day to the special ladies out there who have played a beautiful and significant part of any child’s life! We hope today you feel the love and gratitude you deserve. Thank you for making sacrifices and effort to make us who we are today. ✨♥️✨

We have been playing around with some more crazy colors and new smells to entice your senses and help get your day started! Be on the lookout for Candy Chic, Aroma Therapy, and Watermelon to go on pre-order which will be ready to ship/pick-up first week of June. Next up, we are working on some new masculine tones that may remind you of some popular colognes and essential oils. More to come on those!

Also, Bar & Basin has expanded its fairgrounds to two more markets! Come check us out at the following:

Shop Along the Creek, every 4th Sat, May 25th (1034 W 20th St)

Wanderlust, every 3rd Sun, May 19th (2120 Ella Blvd)

These markets are wonderfully curated by a local real estate agency who work hard to bring out the local artisans in and around the Heights. We hope to see you there!

Lastly, a big thank-you to those of you who have helped get our name out there. If you are new to our brand, please feel free to reach out (try our Contact Us page or message us on Instagram @bar.basin) if you would like to swing by the shop sometime. No obligations necessary.  

Until next time, enjoy the end of spring and get ready for our summer flavors! 🏖🍉💐🍭🛀🏻✨♥️

Every bunny needs some clean lovin’

With Easter just around the corner, it’s almost time for the Easter bunny to drop by your house with a basket full of goodies! If you haven’t gotten around to (ahem) preparing for his visit, then bring your family down to the Sawyer Flea this Saturday and get your goodies, foodies, and fun all at the same time! 

Bar & Basin will have some of your favorite springtime flavors such as Eucalyptus, Mint, & Sea Salt, Cucumber Melon, and Satsuma Orange. We will also have some short supply of brand new bars: Ocean Critter (for the little critter in your life), Morning Bloom (scented like fresh magnolias), Cool Down massage bar (for the adolescent and young men in your life), and Jewel Salt Bar (for those with sore muscles or an active lifestyle). If you can’t make it, feel free to drop by the studio, or use the new in-store pick-up option from our website.

Thanks to those who continue to give feedback and help us grow! We are so happy to know how much you are enjoying our products, and hope you will drop us a line anytime you have an idea or special request!

Also, please keep in mind that we are keeping a larger stock, so bulk orders should not have a wait time if you are planning a shower in the near future. If you need something unique in a pinch, we’ve got you covered.

Lastly, mark your calendars for June 8-9 for the Summer Flea @ Silver Street! In the dead of summer, we are having a very cool (air-conditioned) flea in the warehouse in the arts district. Hope to see you there and until next time!

Be clean. Be well.

Everything's coming up green!

Hello, dear friends! As promised, some delicious new flavors are here to help you bring in the springtime, including some customer-inspired designs as requested including Euclyptus, Mint, & Sea Salt, Cucumber Melon, Ginger & Lime, Lavender & Sage, and more! All new items have been posted as of today, so don't forget to reserve your favorite bars as they are in limited supply.

To make shopping easier on our loyal customers, we have included a new checkout feature on the website for “Pick Up Order” so you can come by the store at your convenience to retrieve your goodies and bypass the shipping fees!

This Saturday will also mark our 2nd showing at the Sawyer Flea, which will have some great vendors, food trucks, music, and fun for the family. We hope you will come out and enjoy the beautiful weather and come take in the sights and smells.

We have also been requested to show the following Saturday (3/23) for the Texas Color Guard Circuit Championship in Pearland, TX. This is a huge event in support of the band and color guard teams contending to participate in the 2020 Rose Parade in California. For more information on this event, check out https://www.pearlandband.org. Their performances are breathtaking and represent the pride of Texas! We are honored to help support this local non-profit organization to help these young performers meet their financial and disciplinary goal.

Lastly, keep your calendars marked for September 14-15 for the Ultimate Women’s Expo @ the George R. Brown Convention Center. Boosting small women-owned startup companies like ours, this is the 8th consecutive expo in Houston that brings in an average of 50,000 participants every year to test and launch new companies and products, and get the chance to listen to some celebrity keynote speakers! Bar & Basin is confirmed to participate…and we will be awarding free tickets to some lucky customers! More details to come…

Until next time - Be clean. Be well.

Get ready for Spring, color pop, and delish flavors!

Happy (belated) Valentine’s to you and yours! As we all begin the winter thaw and early garden prep begins, we are prepping our garden flavors for you! Next month, keep your eyes peeled for some of your special requests including: Satsuma Orange, Eucalyptus & Mint, Ginger & Lime, and Aloe & White Lilac.

To top it off, we have a luxury size bar coming to market. For all the ladies who have been craving a clay mask fix, we designed a sparkly galactic bar that is sure to send your facial woes out of this world. Now you can have a daily clay cleanse without the wait time of a mask! 

And back by popular demand, we have taken the Valentine bar, #50Shades, and added it to our Flagstone collection so it will be available year-round. With a blend of activated charcoal, kaolin clay, and rich, organic oils, this is the perfect bar for anyone  with normal-to-oily skin looking for some relief. Fresh and crisp in scent, this is a real crowd pleaser among men and women...

After January’s blustery weather, we have finally made it out to the Sawyer Flea and had a great opening event. If you haven’t visited yet, bring your family, friends, or sweetheart! This market is full of great vendors, food trucks, great music, and pet adoptions. Lots to see and enjoy with something for everyone. Hope to see you next month on the 3rd Saturday of the month. And if you can’t make it or don’t want to wait to order, drop us a line anytime you would like to come by our shop and select your soapy treats in person!

Thank you all who have been so diligent about giving us feedback to let us know what’s working for you and where we can make your day brighter! Until next time, dear friends...

 

Be clean. Be well.

Let’s do some Holiday Shopping!

As those of you following us on Instagram or Facebook know, we announced that some new and exciting products were on the way...and here they are! At the same time we began to restock our quickly depleted inventory, we made the decision to grow in amount of product available, but expand in the variety for you to choose from! Just in the (Saint) Nick of time, we designed some holiday bars just perfect as stocking stuffers or something unique for that loved one in your life, even if they are hard to buy for! You are sure to find something for everyone’s taste.  

We have some other growth in the works, but we will hold those announcements for another time. We are truly excited and appreciate all your feedback to help us improve our products and let us know what you are enjoying as well. Please keep the comments, emails, etc coming!

in the meantime, take some time to check out our new Seasonal section to help with your holiday shopping, or to find something special just for your indulgence. If you find any of our flagstone products are out of stock, fret not! Check out Pre-Order section. We already have those products curing and ready to be sent to you before sleigh bells grace your rooftop. 🦌 🔔 🦌 🔔 🦌 🎅  

We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with good food, fellowship, and new memories to be thankful for. Stay warm, dear friends, and until next time!

Be clean. Be well. ✨🛁♥️

Successful Launch and then some!

Firstly, we owe a HUGE “Thank You!” To all our early customers and supporters in enabling our launch of our product line. We had an overwhelming number of orders and wonderful feedback from you. Without you, we would not have reached our first milestone as a new small business. One ask that we do have is: Please keep your feedback coming! From you, from your loved ones, friends, whoever you share your soap with. You are our customer and we continue to refine our recipes (or keep making what works for you) to create the ultimate product that suits your needs and pleasures. Your words are golden! 

With that said, some of you have noticed that our inventory is looking a little slim. I ask that you please bear with us while we are in process of making a giant leap to not only replenish our inventory, but grow it...and expand! Based on some of the feedback we received, Bar & Basin is designing and creating new bars with new looks and smells for our next big release around the New Year. If you would like to see updates and sneak peeks of what’s to come, follow us on Facebook (@noorable) or Instagram (@noorable.happens)!  You may also find some last minute holiday releases online and future public events...Be sure you subscribe and follow us to be the first to know!

Until next time, dear friends. Be clean. Be well. ✨🛁♥️
