Review: Thymes Mandarin Coriander Lotion, Hand Soap, Bar Soap & Candle







I chose to review the Mandarin Coriander Kitchen Caddy. I don’t think they had it in stock though because it didn’t come with a caddy or the dishwashing liquid. I ended up getting a Hand wash, lotion, candle, and bar soap in Mandarin Coriander.


This one-of-a-kind herbal and citrus blend is a lively cacophony of cold-pressed mandarin, grapefruit, lemon balm and sweet orange peel. These vibrant citrus notes fuse with sweet marjoram, coriander,rosemary leaves for a soothing herbal zen. Behind these bold notes is a deep, cozy bed of Irish moss, Atlas cedarwood and ivy.


This candle just smelled SO crisp, fresh, and so clean. It has such an alluring and appealing. I love burning this in my house because it gives an instant “brightly clean” smell. It is just so inviting and alluring to others.

This candle never disappointed me. It always burned evenly, never blackening up the glass. It smells like a mixture of vanilla, coriandar, lemon, vanilla, and orange. It smells lovely without being overpowering.

You can buy the 9 oz. Mandarin Coriander Candle for $27.00


The Mandarin Coriander Bar Soap is triple milled and has an all vegetable formula that lathers up really really well. Again, it has such an alluring fresh scent that makes it great for a bath or hand soap.

I love the color of this soap, it really adds vibrancy to any sink or bathroom. The hand cut shape is the perfect size for the palm of my hand. I don’t have to worry about it slipping around or me dropping it because it’s too large.

This has become my husbands favorite soap. He loves that it doesn’t smell “girly” and lathers very nicely- so it helps wash all the tree dust and stuff from working all day off without an issue.

I love the way it leaves my hands feeling moisturized after I use it. I don’t use bar soap to take a bath, but it DOES make an awesome hand soap as well.

You can buy the 7 oz. Mandarin Coriander Bar Soap for $13.00


The Mandarin Coriander Hand Wash is amazing. Everybody that uses the bathroom at my house has asked me where I got this. They love the scent and the fact that it’s great for both women and men. It isn’t fruity, floral, or too girly so it’s perfect for men to use too.

This is also perfect for sitting by the sink in the kitchen while I’m cooking dinner. It keeps my hands clean, smelling great, and feeling moisturized. I really like. A little bit goes a long way because it bubbles up so easily.

It rinses away all the dirt and germs without over=drying the skin. It’s perfect for kids and adults alike. The vegetable protein and extracts of lemon balm leaf and parsley power away odors.

You can buy the Mandarin Coriander Hand Wash 17 oz for 17.50


This Mandarin Coriander Hand Lotion is absolutely perfect. You all know how much I hate having dry hands. I can’t touch anything if I feel like my hands are dry, it freaks me out. So I am constantly carrying bottles of lotion in my purse, have several bottles in my bathroom for after shower/bath use, and some in my bedroom to use before bed.

This is lightweight and non-greasy with just a hint of fragrance. It isn’t overwhelming with the scent OR oil. I hate lotions that make me feel like pens are just going to slip out of my hand and stab me in the eye. This is moisturizing without the grease.

This is refreshing and invigorating, so it’s perfect for all day use. I am thinking of getting a second bottle and putting it on the desk at the shop so that when I crochet or sew my hands will always be moisturized. I can’t risk using a lotion that has too much grease or oil in it around yarn or fabric for reselling purposes. It might leave marks.. so this is the BEST!

You can buy the Mandarin Coriander Hand lotion for $15 for 8.25 oz.
