I received a total of 4 handmade soaps from Claire Organics for my review and this post will be touching on the first 2 that I tried: Guinness with Raw Honey and Mulberry Yogurt soaps. Here goes the first part of my review for Claire Organics soap:
Description from the product page:
"Guinness with raw honey - signature product - unscented: Gentle care for baby eczema, soothing for sensitive skin.
Guinness Stout made with hops and barley which are both extremely gentle and wonderful to use from head to toe. Barley contains minerals that preserve the skins elasticity and protect it from free radical damage. Hops have a relaxing effect on the body, are skin soothing and have natural anti-septic, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Brewer’s yeast kills the bacteria associated with acne.
Mulberry Yogurt Soap - Whitening, Anti-Aging
Fresh from our organic home garden, Mulberry is a great whitening agent that naturally diminishing dark spots and remove blemishes. Their rich source of anti-aging antioxidants effectively fights off wrinkles and tightening opened pores. Mulberry makes a great facial bar for glowing, flawless skin."
I would like to apologise for the lack of pictures taken on this post because I got really excited in trying out handmade soaps and did not snap much pictures before I use it. Whoooopss...
# 1 : Guinness with Raw Honey (Signature product)
The first time I tried out this soap, I was wondering to myself this soap smells a bit alcohol-ish but I couldn't make out what type of alcohol it is as I'm not a person who drinks any alcohol. I found out later that this soap contains Guinness Stout with added raw honey.
Upon using it for about 1 week, I feel my skin smoother and I also use it a few times on my girl who had a mild rash on her tummy during that time. The soap did not leave any irritating sensation on her skin and I also noticed her rash is less reddish and less sore after bathing my girl.
I do however do not like that the soap crumbles easily and upon giving back my feedback to the sponsor, I learned that handmade soaps also tend to 'melt' a little faster than commercial soaps because of the more moisturising oil used in the soaps. Now that explains this phenomena as I do tend to leave my soap wet after shower hehehehe...
# 2 : Mulberry Yogurt
Ooo... I love this soap! In fact, I use it sooooo slowly and with gentle care, trying to conserve and preserve the soap as long as possible! I can feel that my skin is gently covered and lathered with the smooth yogurt texture and I also noticed that my skin is not as dry as it used to be. Love this! I would totally recommend this soap!
