Artisan bath and body products, made in Rotorua with natural ingredients.

Hello and welcome to our soapalicious little world.

Firstly, thanks for stopping by and secondly allow us to introduce ourselves.

We are Shannen aka Director of First Impressions and Jackie aka Founder and Maker of Awesome Things.  And together, we make the perfect team because we are both invested in the future of our planet and generations to come. 

Next time you come to Rotorua why not add us to your list of places to visit, we would love to see you.  You can find us on the corner of Tutanekai Street and Hinemoa Street, Rotorua where we make everything ourselves onsite.

Our mission is to help our people and our planet.

If lowering your carbon footprint is as important to you as it is to us then we can help you get there.  Our products are packaged in either paper, cardboard, glass, tin or cellulose so that you don't need to worry about contributing to the nation wide plastic pandemic.  A few of our products do have recyclable plastic lids as we have yet to find a better solution.

Make the swap.

Swapping from liquid soaps to solid bars is such an easy way to lower your single use plastics waste and sure, plastics are often recyclable but let's break the cycle altogether.  We reckon it's best to keep it real and keep it natural.

Check out our collections for some other ways in which you can make positive changes, it all adds up.

We are here to help make positive change easy peasy.
