REVIEW ON JEANIE BOTANICALS ORIENTAL HERBAL SOAP (PINE/TEA TREE/EUCALYPTUS)


*What to do* when you dislike bar soap?
I steer clear of bar soaps but then there is this exception for handmade soap especially this one that use Oriental medicinal herbs. Reasons being hand-crafted soap are really fabulous and gentle with my sensitive skin.

People now take pride and are more selective in choosing skincare products including body care. Some people will also turn to Oriental medicinal when they have skin problem and the demand is because that Oriental medicinal are more gentle to the skin.

ABOUT
We take great pride in our meticulously handcrafted soap with Oriental medicinal herbs. Our herbal soap takes 100 days to produce, with herbal healing properties infused into the soap in 3 ways. Organic and wildcrafted herbs such as licorice, wormwood and houttuynia are infused in cold-pressed olive oil for 60 days. Then we added plantain, burdock, and licorice tea and added herbal powders into the final soap. The ground herbs also act as mild exfoliants.

This lengthy process creates a soap that not only offers amazing skincare benefits, but also maximizes the healing properties that the herbs have to offer.

Love the smell of the oriental herbal soap is earthy with smell of herbs =) .  There is not artificial colouring as the colours comes from the herbs and thus a bit brownish.

Since it is a handmade soap, it doesn't lather that a lot of foam but it cleanses the skin well, doesn't really dry my skin and help with my back-acne.  The smell isn't strong after you wash it off.  It foams up really easy even without using any foaming net.

Overall,  I find that it is good for people with skin trouble such as back acne and oily skin type.  If you are the type that still love to use the feeling of soap go for handmade soap as it was less harsh than those bar soap. For drier skin type, you can still use this soap.  Just don't leave it on the skin for more than 1minute and apply moisturising lotion after that. Alternative, go for their Jeanie Botanicals charcoal soap which is equally awesome too =)  .
