SOS Organics Wild Mint and Herb Garden Handmade Soaps {Product Review}

© 2009 - 2014 www.perfectskincareforyou.com

Wild Mint
Price: Rs 80 for 100gms

Ingredients
I know the print is totally illegible so I shall put it down here - coconut oil, vegetable oil, lye, peppermint, rosemary essential oil, nettle leaf powder
the swirls had nettle leaf powder on them so the soap was little scrubby as well but not harsh or even enough!!
Pros
this one feels really really cool, perfect for hot summers!!! In fact, whenever I used this soap, my skin was cold :D you would understand what I am saying if you know the peppermint coolness like you get when you eat Polo or any other mint!
wasn't very moisturizing but not drying either!

Cons 
expensive coz it does melt away in 20 days for one person!!  
would love to know what exactly is the vegetable oil they use!

Herb Garden
Price: Rs 80 for 100gms

Ingredients

Pros
after using the Wild Mint, this one didn't really make a mark!
decent soap with moisturizing properties!!

Cons
again expensive coz it melts super fast but there is a way to use handmade soaps and that should be followed stringently. Check the tip here (at the end of the post). 

Availability
Natural Mantra (recently hiked their prices because of shipping costs but I do hope they bring them down soon!)
SOS Organics (you can order from their site directly but minimum order is 500 and no COD)

Interesting Fact: I would also love to bring to your attention the fact that the soaps sold by Earthy Goods are manufactured by SOS Organics only. Check out my reviews on their soaps as well :)
