I will be doing a full review of the body butter from this range in the new year so I can talk at length about the marvellous Karen and Tony Welch and the great products that they are doing with Alberthas Garden, but I received a sample of the exfoliating soap at the Swap in the City Event and I wanted to post a short review of my thoughts.
How lovely is the packaging? I know that they are out of fashion at the moment but I am a fan of a soap.
Not all soaps are created equally and this one is a good one. Despite being a sample, I got a good number of showers (six) out of this product. It is not super hard, but not super soft either. In the shower it provided a good lather. The level of exfoliation was too too harsh – apart from one seed had not been crushed. As the soap was not rock hard, I was able to remove the see with my fingernail and carry on. It could be used every day, but I as using it a couple of times a week.
This soap did not leave my skin taut or irritated when I came out of the shower and I waited ten minutes before applying body moisturiser to see how my skin reacted. I have very dry skin so I always need to apply a body lotion and even after ten minutes my skin was not irritated. Very impressive. The fragrance is very gentle, very unisex and not overly nutmeggy or spicy. If you are a fan of an exfoliating soap or are looking for a soap that will not dry out the skin, this is one to try.
