I am a shower gel person. I hardly use soaps. But for the summer I decided to take a break from shower gels and try out a glycerin based soap. I’ve been using Khadi Fruit Soap throughout the summer and here is my take on the product.
Price & Quantity:
Rs. 54 for 125 gm.
2 years from the date of manufacture
The packaging is very simple. The soap is wrapped in a transparent plastic sheet. No cardboard packaging. It has labels on both the sides with the details of the soap. I’m not going to complain about the packaging as it is manufactured in a small scale industry. What matters is the actual product and compared to other drug store brands, this one is way better.
This soap has a strong fragrance which is not fruity at all to my senses. It smells strongly of coconut oil (at least for me). The ingredient list doesn’t mention any fruits. So this is quite confusing! Anyway! I can bear the smell. It’s okay for me but for sensitive noses it might be unbearable. The fragrance doesn’t linger on after bath though.
The soap has a smooth texture and lathers up really well with a loofah. You can get clean feeling only upon using a loofah. The soap gets rinsed off easily and doesn’t leave behind any slippery feel. I haven’t used this soap on my face. So I’m not sure about how it works on facial skin. For my face I prefer to use my daily cleanser.
This is a very refreshing soap. I can feel my skin squeaky clean. This is what I need for summers. It did not dry up my skin. I don’t feel the need to apply a body lotion after bath. This soap may be drying during winter though. This is perfect for summer use.
Initially I used to find it difficult to grip the soap due to its large size but with regular use the edges soften and the size reduces which becomes easy to use. This soap won’t last for more than a month. This is not a con for me as this proves that the soap is chemical free.
I like the fact that it is herbal and free from chemicals. I’ve already finished one bar and using the second one. The soap looks like a piece of fruit cake to me! Cute!
Continuous usage for over a month now, has made my skin really soft. Kudos to that!
Coming to the pricing, I feel it is economically priced since the quantity is more and it is a herbal product which will not affect your skin in any way.
