Claims: This facial bar has excellent deep cleansing properties and gently exfoliates to even out skin tone. The rich multivitamin content of Strawberry, Almonds and Grape seed helps fight pigmentation and signs of premature ageing.
Pricing: 25gms costs 38bucks. That is just half a dollar. It’s as expensive as regular soap. But look at the quantity. It’s just 25 grams. That is like 1/4th the size of a regular soap bar. They are selling it as a facial bar …like a face wash. So if you intend using it just for your face, it’s a pretty decent quantity. But if you bought it like me ….to use as a regular bath soap, it’s very insufficient and unless you are an infant or have tiny hands, it is cumbersome to use. But like I said, it’s lovely as a face wash.
Packaging: The packaging is very good. The soap is first cling-wrapped. Then it is put in a custom sized flap-openable plastic case which is enveloped by a strong rectangular paper box that you see in these pictures. The print and packaging are extremely good. It is a petite bar and hence, very travel friendly.
Ingredients: These are the ingredients this soap boasts of: Almond oil, strawberry extract, grapeseed extract. I tried a lot to get the entire ingredient list but it’s not available anywhere even on the packaging….so this is all I’ve got.
And here is what the brand claims these ingredients in their soap does for you. Apart from the nutritional value that strawberries are known for, beauty is another department where strawberries excel. Rich in salicylic acid, Strawberries clear off the dead skin that gets accumulated on the epidermal layer resulting in dullness and skin-darkening. Also, a perfect cure for acne prone skin, Strawberry Extracts enriched facial bar clears off pimples within few days of use. By shrinking the pores and controlling the secretion of oil by the sebaceous glands, strawberries help in skin polishing and imparting a kissable glow to the skin.

The particles are gentle and help in regulation of blood in the skin. Strawberries are rich in antioxidants which are known to be the perfect solution for premature aging.

Strawberry Extracts are efficient skin whiteners because of their high Vitamin C and Zinc content. Pigmentation, blemishes, dark spots, blackheads and acne scars fade away in no time.

Pure Almond Oil Moisturizes the skin by relieving irritation and itchiness. It is a great lubricant that not only soothes the skin but also penetrates in the skin’s layers making up for any kind of essential oil loss.

It not only improves the skin complexion but the skin looks all the more young, healthier. Fine lines disappear and the skin-aging process slows down.

- This soap smells exactly like delicious strawberries. It is not edible so please don’t consume it. I know it is extremely tempting.
- It’s not strong or overpowering. It does not linger.
- In fact, after a few uses, it loses most if its yummy fragrance.
- It is translucent like any other gel soap.
- It lathers well.
- Does not feel too dry after use. Remember although it’s slightly mild, it’s still soap, not a moisturizer.
- Contains the goodness of a blend of essential oils.
- As far as the claims go, I really don’t expect any soap or facewash to have the ability to treat skin. It can either be harsh and dry or mild and not strip you of your natural oils. This one does not dry my face or body and is neither harsh nor is it like those creamy soaps that don’t lather. It’s got a great balance.
- 100% organic
- Paraben free
- Cruelty free
- Not tested on animals
- 100% chemical free (as claimed by the company)
Verdict: This is definitely a good soap which is nice and fragrant. It is a quality product that is available at a fairly decent price. My only concern is the size. It’s just too tiny. Vaadi Herbals makes so many other fragrant handmade soaps. I’d rather use some of the bigger, regular sized bars instead of this one.. …unless they start making these in a decent size.
