FuturePrimitive: Summer Release, Indian Temple Attar and The Warrior


I kept my summer order from FuturePrimitive simple: Indian Temple Attar (a staple scent for me) and The Warrior. 

I prefer to use Tiggy's Three In One Whipped Cream Soap as shampoo then use the Conditioning Hair Rinse in the same scent. I purchased these at full price, 6.95 pounds for the cream soap and 9.25 pounds for the rinse. All the summer scents are currently marked down and the pounds to dollar rate is pretty good right now, so I went ahead and ordered a couple more conditioners from the sale. Looking back on past posts, I see that this is the third summer in a row I have ordered Indian Temple Attar. I love the dark labdanum enhanced rose petals, exotic and plush and full of beauty. I will continue to order it every summer if she releases it.


The Warrior boasts woods, spice and resins. The frankincense is aged and accompanies smoked wood, salty tang and I love it. In fact, it is in my rotation right now. 

The Three In One cleans hair without stripping it, is great for shaving and of course, as soap. It manages to be dense yet light as air. The Conditioning Hair Rinse offers nice slip for finger combing wet hair, a must for my curly hair, as well as moisturizing but not weighing hair down. My holy grail of indie conditioner.


The Warrior bar soap was 5.50 pounds. A past review can be read here. I love the new look. Very rustic and lovely, like the masts, canvas and wood of a ship. Tiggy is a master soaper. Abundant lather, strong scent and wonderful skin feel.




Love my FuturePrimitive bar soaps.


Two free samples slivers in Amish Friendship Bread and Lemon Squares.

Amish Friendship Bread, light on the bread notes but sweetly spiced and dotted with dried fruits. Comforting.

Lemon Squares, sweet shortbread crust topped with lemon curd, zesty and sweet. I believe this one is in her new palm free formula. I am excited to test this one out. I may review it more in depth later once I use it. 

I am thrilled to be stocked back up on shampoo and conditioner. Have you tried any indie vendor conditioners? What have you been washing your hair with lately?

  1. I will finally be trying FP conditioner! I use solid shampoo and conditioner now even though I am pretty sure the liquid versions are better for my hair. I will also be getting the bubbling bathing grains.

    1. Woot!! I hope you like it. I know conditioner can be a picky item. I am way too picky with it myself. I enjoy a good solid shampoo bar. But I need a liquid conditioner. I picked up two bathing grains too. Just could not pass up.

    1. Shipping was about 14 pounds on this order. Shipping can be a little steep overseas but the value is well enough for me to splurge on it. Her prices are fair too so paying to get it to me is worth it for me personally. I try to order once from each season to keep it from being too frequent but my will can be weak lol! :-)

    2. My order was $24 for items and $18 for shipping, I am with Julie that I see it as a treat and would not make heavy orders regularly. With the exchange rate I decided this was my best opportunity to try new products.

    3. Yep. Ditto Jean. But I always find that I order right before she does a sale... every time! LOL! So if I tell you I order, then wait a week and you will hit a sale guaranteed.
