Woohoo, today my blog ‘Natural Beauty And Makeup’ (NBAM) turns 1 and truly no words can describe my happiness! On this first blog anniversary, I would like to convey my heartfelt gratitude to each one of you. Without your immense support, my blogging journey would not have been so much interesting and blissful! It is due to this baby, I got that chance to meet with some of the talented bloggers and amazing readers which otherwise would never ever have been possible. Keep showering your love and wishes on my baby ‘NBAM’ always my sweethearts. 

Today, I have come up with a review on handmade soap known as Minty Lemon Bathing bar from Natural Bath & Body brand. This soap was a part of O My Bag, June subscription box, 2016 and I have been using it for the last few weeks. So, keep reading to know more about it ladies...

Packaging:

As you can see in the picture, the soap came to me nicely wrapped with a transparent plastic. This kind of packaging might be because it is just a small sample which I received along with other sample products in my O MY BAG subscription box. The packaging also contains two stickers, on the front sticker, the brand and soap name is featured whereas rest details are listed on the back sticker. Overall, the entire packaging reflects lemon and minty vibe.

Texture:

Coming to the texture, this soap is soft to touch and is off-white in color. There are few brown colored herbs which are engraved in the soap, most probably dry mint leaves. It releases a decent smell but not at all close to mint or lemon! Nevertheless, the fragrance is mild and goes away soon after wash.

My experience with Minty Lemon Bathing Bar:

This is the first time I am using any handmade bathing bar. I was really excited when I received this soap in my subscription bag. For the last few weeks, I have been using this soap and I must admit that I am quite impressed with it. The presence of shea butter and oils make it a very gentle moisturizing soap for the skin.

In spite of being a handmade natural soap, it produces decent lather and cleanses the body so well leaving my skin feeling super clean and refreshed. It removes effectively all the dirt, sweat and impurities without leaving any soapy residue on the body. I hate the fact when even after washing my body thousand times those stubborn slippery soapy residues remain on the body. In this case, it gets easily washed away, a huge plus.

The texture of this soap is soft but not slippery. It doesn’t dry out my skin that much, though I apply my body lotion after bath. But, what I feel is, this is not appropriate for super dry skin people especially in winters.

In the meanwhile, I completely forgot what my fellow blogger friends always suggest about handmade soaps! We should always keep handmade soaps in a fully dry form whereas I kept this soap in my bathroom just like other soap bars. As a result, this soap has lost its original shape, reduced in size and looks like triangle-shaped bar than rectangle :D 

Plus Points:

  • Gentle to skin 
  • No chemicals 
  • Easy to grip 
  • Cleanses skin gently but efficiently 
  • Natural product, so less harmful 
  • No harmful fillers
  • Suitable for normal to oily skin

Minus Points:

  • Non-availability offline
  • Not much suitable for dry skin 
  • Fragrance 
  • Need to dry it really well to avoid wastage of product

Rating: 4/5


Natural Bath & Body Minty Lemon Bathing Bar

Conclusion:


I have started indulging myself into using handmade soaps lately and found this Natural Bath & Body Minty Lemon Bathing Bar extremely good. I am just a bit disappointed with the fragrance of it otherwise, I do feel everyone must give this soap a try at least. Highly recommended.
