SaND for Soapaholics Monkey Bar Bathing Soap Review

Hello Lovelies,
I last updated my blog on Friday and I am posting today. To be honest I was lacking ideas and words to write a review. You know it can get monotonous if you are doing it over 2.5 years. I do take it slow now and prefer working at my own pace. After all its my blog and I can do whatever I want. Also it is good to unwind and relax. So what do you do if you want to feel relaxed - pamper yourself??? I do that by using heavenly smelling soaps, body washes, scrubs etc. They not only rejuvenate but uplift my mood. I shall be reviewing one such soap from SaND for Soapaholics called Monkey Bar which was sent to me for review purposes. Read on to know my experience using it....

Every 10gm contains Banana Fruit (10.10%), Oatmeal Inf. (10.10%), Veg. Glycerine (10.10%), Sodium Sauryl Sulphate (4.83%), Coconut Endosperm Oil (4.04%), Pepper Fruit Ess.Oil (0.08%), Colour (0.20%)

Taken from the brands website


What does the brand say about this soap:
A soap that is perfect for the tender skin of your young ones! Its unique formulation consisting of Oatmeal and Bananas helps wash away the dirt and grime from their skin, while also keeping it baby soft and moisturized. The Banana also contributes to maintaining skin elasticity and hydration. What’s more, Coconut Oil was blended in for it’s anti-septic properties to help soothe irritations. So use Monkey Bar and keep your little chimps happy, healthy and hygienic! 




The soap came in a plastic pouch with a sticker on it mentioning the key ingredients. Nothing fancy about the packaging. Very basic and simple and I like that.




The soap sent to me was semi circle in shape. It actually comes round in shape as pictured above when I checked the brand's website. It is a light creamy yellow soap with brown swirls it. It contains fine particles which help as mild exfoliants. This soap can be used for infants and toddlers as well as it is made of natural ingredients. Banana, Oatmeal - Ahh what a combination and coconut oil for moisturization. The soap is creamy and lathers well and Ohh boy it smells yummy and delicious - it looks edible too. The smell will not linger for long post bathing but yes it will make the skin soft & smooth and you will feel rejuvenated. The soap does not leave any sticky residue on the body post bath and does a good job of cleansing the skin. There is nothing much I can say negative about this soap. I love handmade soaps and this is one of my favourites.
