Aster Luxury Bathing Bar in Coffee Review

Hi everyone
Hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was not that great I was unwell with stomach infection. But I a m much better now. Anyhow coming to today's review I shall be reviewing the Aster Handmade Soap about which I spoke about many a times on my blog. I have reviewed their 3 soaps - Rose ,Sandalwood & Aloe Vera. Today I shall be talking about their handmade soap in Coffee which I have been using lately & loving it. Read on to know more ........





Ingredients:
Coconut Oil, Castor Oil, Plam Fatty Acid, Rice Bran Fatty Acid, Utylated Hydroxy Toluene, Titanium Di Oxide, Glycerin, Coffee Fragrance




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



What does the brand say about the soap:
Aster Luxury premium coffee bathing bar soap is made from the traditional process and vegan ingredients. It is handcrafted and contains high quality skin friendly natural extracts and essential oils. It is blended with coffee rich in antioxidants which tones the skin. It is wonderful for dry, sensitive, acne prone and oily skin. This soap gently deep cleanses the skin from in and out and makes it look young, soft and glowing. 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 & opaque. It comes in a clean film packaging with a sticker in the front & the back with basic information & ingredients on it. The soap smells like coffee but not very strong nor too mild just perfect in my opinion. The smell won't last forever but would for a decent amount of time.It lathers decently  & is quite moisturizing on the skin but not that much for dry skinned beauties . Soaps like these are a treat in the winters. I love coffee & one may also know that coffee brightens the skin as well as exfoliates. A handmade soap with the goodness of coffee & all natural ingredients ,what more one can ask for. One soap lasts a pretty long time. There is not much I can  complain of.


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

The not so Good:
Smell may not be long lasting as it not that strong.
May not be that moisturizing for dry skinned beauties.

Rating: 4.5/5

Aster Luxury Bathing Bar in Coffee  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 & leave your blog links if you are visiting here for the first time.
