As promised in the previous post, I will be highlighting my favorite shops at Disney, and this is the first of the two.
Basin is a bath store located in Downtown Disney which sells lovely, predominately handmade, bath items. I've heard some people compare it to Lush minus the nauseatingly strong in-store smell. I've never been to a Lush, so I can't comment on the comparison, but I can say that I don't think anyone could get a scent headache walking in to this place.
You may be wondering, Why have I never heard of this store? Well, it's probably mainly due to there only being two in the country, this one in Orlando and one in California's Downtown Disney. There is another store called Basin White which is supposed to represent a more luxurious version of the Basin products which also only has two locations - one in Disney's Grand Floridian Hotel in Orlando and one in Las Vegas. So, with only four locations between the two, there isn't much opportunity to discover this place.
While you can order their products online, it is so worth making a point to visit the store if you have the chance.
Take a look!
some soaps and body butters (the front soap on the left is a Halloween leftover!)
more of their hand cut soaps.
their soaps are on tables all over the store, so I couldn't get a shot with all of them
