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)

Claire Organics

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!

always heard of handmade soap but never try.. who knows I'm one lucky one.. hehehe..


like the healing properties and smooth skin effect, especially milk-based handmade soap.


Never tried handmade soap before.  Would want to try it out after reading the review Laughing


For me, handmade soap that can soothes eczema and/or reduce dark spots would be cool!


Wow mulberry with yogurt I like! Wait.. I like the goat milk & Evening primrose with Jojoba too!!


tried it with breastmilk (mine) and face is less dry. sort of moisture feeling.. but i like to try out different flavour.

I have yet to try out any handmade soap, anyway I hope that it has healing properties which can help to eliminate the rash on my baby's skin.

I have been trying different types of soap but nothing suits my baby, really hope to have chance to try this out!

I have never use any handmade soap before but I have heard of it since long time ago. I wish to try but was just lacking a chance. I've heard that handmade soap is less irritating, contains natural fragrances and produced with natural ingredients. So that means handmade soap is not only good for skin but also good for planet. I really wish to try it out.


I love handmade soap that has anti-aging properties and reduce blemishes.


OH a pity is it not for the USA. I would love to have tried it since it is handmade and natural made as well. Next timeSmile!


Love the Mulberry Yogurt, looks good enough to eat. Would love to try organic hand made soap, more so since it has anti aging properties.

I love handmade soap, simply because it is natural and moisturizes alot more than the soaps on the shelves.  I have sensitive dry skin, so it helps.  Also, the aroma of handmade soap is wonderful!


The benefit I like the most in a handmade soap is that natural is always better than synthetic.

I love bittersweet soap =D

Because Bitter gourd helps in keeping the skin free from blemishes, and keeps the skin glowing, and helps in toxic elimination from the body =)
