Y’all know I am an ardent fan of whatever handmade, be it any cosmetics products or soap. They’re not only safe for skin, but are safe for environment and animals too. This is the main reason why I have switched to handmade soaps. Today’s post is about 2 of my favorites from Soapstories India.
Some days back I came across a store on Instagram, Soapstoriesindia, the brand formulates artisan soaps and other skincare products. From them I purchased one Handmade Soap (Peaceful Thoughts) and Body Butter (Flower Child) And the sweet lady Madhu, the main formulator of the brand sent me two other products, another handmade soap( Juicy Orange) and a lip balm (Pure Therapy). Today, I am going to review those two soaps. Will review other products very soon.

The beautiful soap comes in a brown paper packaging placed inside a potli. That’s an eco-friendly packaging. Isn’t it?
The first thing you will notice is the beautiful colors. The ombre layered soap has a very mild smell of Lavender that immediately soothes my senses as I first time opened the packaging. This gentle soap gives a rich, creamy lather that feels soft on the skin. The lather leaves your skin silky and clean with zero residue. It leaves my skin soft and supple.
I am really impressed with the quality and value and I would totally recommend.

The ombre layered soap comes in a brown paper packaging with the name of the product and full ingredient list.
This soap smells really amazing – it’s a wonderful start to the day with its refreshing yet soothing fragrance. The fragrance is not at all irritating to my sensitive nose. The soap is soft and gentle on the skin with rich, creamy lather.
Absolutely love the juicy orange soap, I’ve noticed my skin is becoming much healthier and brighter after use. I love the way my skin feels after my bath. Even very dry spots that I couldn’t do anything with have cleared up. I have really sensitive skin and this does a great job at moisturizing and hydrating. I highly recommend this soap.
What I don’t like about most of the soaps or skin cleansers that they give a dry, tight feel to the skin. But these products from Soapstories India don’t do that.
