Aster Luxury Strawberry Bathing Bar Review


I have added a new soap bar to my fav summer bath essentials and would like to let you read about the same. It is the first luxury soap in Strawberry variant that I have tried from wonderful range of Aster Luxury soaps that is infused with fabulous strawberry scent and moisturizing glycerine. 

Brand Claims: 
Aster Luxury handmade bathing bars are premium bathing soaps which are designed for those who want to nourish their skin naturally. Aster bathing bars are blended for enhancing specific skin types, as every individual's skin is not the same. These luxury soaps are skin healthy, soothing and provide natural protection to the skin. Aster bathing bars retain all the possible benefits of herbs and essential oils. The Essential Oils & Fragrances used in Aster Luxury bathing bars are sourced from authentic manufacturers & used only after going through stringent quality control methods. Aster handmade soaps use good percentage of essential oils thus the lingering fragrance lasts much longer.

Usage:Firmly hold the aster handmade bathing bar and run all over the wet body. This soap gives good lather that will clean your whole body. Apply lather all over body before showering off.

Coconut Oil, Sorbitol, Castor Oil, Myristic Acid, Stearic Acid, Cocoamido Propyl Betaine, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Strawberry Fragrance Oil.

Price: Rs.150/- for each bar weighing 125g.
Shelf Life: 2 Yrs
Packaging: The soap comes double-sealed in a transparent film so you are greeted with the lovely soap color directly from outside even before you could open it. The packaging has sticker with their brand logo on the front and ingredient list at the back of the soap. 

The Strawberry Bathing Bar resembles the actual strawberry in color. The rectangular shaped soap bar is translucent and is so soft when you hold it in your hand just like you are holding hardened gel. The soap bar itself has the brand logo imprinted on it. If I talk about strawberry fruit, its fragrance always feels so strong to my nose. But the fragrance of this soap is so sweet & delicious that I felt like taking a bite ;) 
The moment you rub the soap on your body, it produces decent lather. The lather may not match with usual chemical based soap bars because the soap bar is enriched with glycerine. But I am perfectly happy with it. The soap caused me no itchy or inflamed feel on skin.

Interestingly, the soap bar doesn't slip from your hand after being contacted with water and gives you fine grip. There is no tendency of quick melting in the soap bar like other handmade soaps, but even them I am making it sure that it doesn't remain wet after bathing. Strawberries are known for anti-ageing properties and help condition the skin. So you skin is in for a treat.
