Aster Luxury Bathing Bar in Sandalwood Review

Hi everyone,
Today I shall be doing a soap review after a while called Aster Luxury Bathing Bar Soap in Sandalwood. I have reviewed the Rose and Aloe Vera Soap before on my blog you may check it out. I love handmade soaps which are gentle on the skin and cruelty free too. I have used many soaps in the last few months and today I shall share with you my views on this Sandalwood Soap. Read on to know more...



INGREDIENTS:
Coconut Oil, Sorbitol, Castor Oil, Myristic Acid, Stearic Acid, Cocoamido Propyl Betaine, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Sandal Fragrance Oil



Price: Rs. 150/- for 125g. Can be bought in an economical set of 3 soaps for Rs. 299/-  here


What does Aster have to say about this soap:
Aster Luxury sandalwood natural bathing bar soap is handmade and crafted from fresh procured natural ingredients. Sandalwood is effective for various skin allergies. It detoxifies the skin and cures acne and makes the skin look glowing, fair and young. No Paraben. No Phthalates. No animal testing. Sandal wood bar soap has aroma of 100% natural sandal wood oil. It leaves skin moisturized and its rich lathering effect gives a fresh appeal to the skin after every bath. This bathing bar does not have any side effects and is good for the skin. No Paraben. No Phthalates. No animal testing.


The soap came in a luxurious golden and black cardboard packaging  with 4 different soaps out of which  I have reviewed 2 before. The soap comes wrapped in a clean film with a sticker logo  at the front and at the back. All the basic information & ingredients are printed on the packaging itself.  All in all nothing fancy just plain simple packaging.


The soap is rectangular shaped and semi transparent. The color is mustard yellow and quite light. Since the soap is glycerin based it does not smell very strong and is mildly fragrant. The soap lathers decently as it is glycerin based and is quite gentle on the skin. It did not dry out my skin which I liked but in winters applying a body lotion is a must after bath. I wish this soap smelled exactly like sandalwood which it did not. Overall there is nothing much to hate about this soap I love it because it is paraben and cruelty free and devoid of chemicals.

The Good:
Easily available online.
Gentle soap with nice soft fragrance.
Suitable for all skin types.
Decently priced.
Good quality.
Sandalwood is good for the skin
Lathers decently.
No parabens, chemicals and phthalates.
Cruelty free.

The not so Good:
Smell won't last long as it is not very strongly scented.
Wish it smelled like sandalwood.

Rating: 4.5/5

Aster Luxury Bathing Bar in Sandalwood is a mild and gentle soap on the skin which does not dry the skin and keeps it soft and supple. No chemicals, parabens and phthalates makes it worth a try for sure.

I hope this review was informative and useful to all reading. Please leave a comment below with your inputs. Would love to know what you have to say.

Until next time.... Take care xoxo

  1. Saw this on fb and loved the impressive color. But seem like there's a need to infuse a stronger sandalwood smell in it.
