Research seems to be the best
excuse way to get new things! I was looking for coconut-enriched products at Watsons for this article I was writing for Project Vanity, and I came across Erth Origins Age-Defense Soap (PHP 99) in a sea of whitening soaps. It called out to me. 🙂

I was on the fence whether or not to publish a review for Naturally European Luxury Soap (aka The Somerset Toiletry Co. Naturally European Soap Bar). On one hand, I’ve already started talking about the importance of soap reviews. On the other hand, the particular “edition” of this soap already has limited stocks at Beauty Bar’s sale aisle due to repackaging. But then again, it is a good bath soap (old or new packaging) that deserves a shout-out.

Wondering aloud: Why don’t I see enough reviews on beauty blogs about soap? They might not be as hyped up as makeup, but they certainly don’t lack in importance. This is something we use daily, or maybe more than once per day. And especially because I have dry skin and suffer from dry patches several times a year, I have become more discerning with the soap I use. Here’s what I think of Zenutrients Sweet Vanilla, Milk and Melon Body and Hand Wash (estimated PHP 234).

I suppose I’ve come a long way with my bath products. When I was in elementary, my idea of a luxurious bath was to treat myself to the sweet-smelling Safe Guard Fruity instead of the usual anti-bacterial soap my mom would purchase. It evolved to The Body Shop’s body washes, when friends started gifting those every Christmas. (Love ’em, and I still repurchase when there’s a sale!) But now I’ve decided to luxuriate with The Body Shop Olive Soap and Shea Soap (Regular Price is around PHP 195 each; got them on sale at buy-1-take-1)

I’ve studied enough cycles of Avon brochures to know to be patient and wait for a sale before pouncing. As a result, I ended up with a huge bottle of Avon Simply Delicate pH Balanced Feminine Wash in Calming. I don’t think I could write paragraphs upon paragraphs about feminine intimate care, so I’ll make the review as quick and painless as possible.
