Fabindia Rose Fragrant and Gentle Bathing Bar

Fabindia Rose Fragrant and Gentle Bathing Bar

Its not spring time but “roses” :rose: :rose: :rose: :rose: are all that’s on my mind. I am smelling roses everywhere. I suddenly thought about how I just adore the scent of roses after reading Shivani’s L’occitane rose shower gel review here.  In this review, she mentioned that she felt like she was sitting “amidst 100 freshly-plucked red roses from the garden,” and that was enough for me to go hunting for natural rose fragrances and that’s when I saw this fragrant soap bar from Fabindia and immediately bought it. Please read on the review to find out admist how many roses I found myself while using this bar :woot:

FabIndia Rose Soap

My Take on Fabindia Rose Fragrant and Gentle Bathing Bar:

I would like to talk about the packaging first.  Its pretty simple and the soap bar comes wrapped in see-through double plastic wraps.  With the double wrapping plastic cover, you can’t sniff out the fragrance a bit, but once the plastic is all unwrapped, the bar smells strongly of the home-grown variety of roses and it is such a wonderful fragrance that I don’t really mind that it has been artificially added.  If Shivani felt like having sat admist 100 roses, I felt like there were at least 5 to 6 roses around me. :yahoo: :balle:


The bar is light pink in colour and see through and it lathers really well.  It does not dry out like how usual soaps do, but then, I do have to apply heavy-duty body butters after the shower.  The most wonderful thing is that the whole bathroom starts smelling of roses after the shower.


Coming to the pros and cons of Fabindia Rose Fragrant and Gentle Bathing Bar:

Pros of Fabindia Rose Fragrant and Gentle Bathing Bar:

  • A pleasantly fragrant bathing bar.
  • Smells wonderfully of roses (about 5 to 6 roses, I know I know the fragrance is artificial) :smug:
  • The bar is tightly packed with plastic wrappers so that it doesn’t lose its fragrance.
  • The rose fragrance stays with you for a pretty long time after the shower, say about 4 hours.
  • Comes at a very cheap price.
  • Does not dry out the skin, probably due to the glycerin in it, but even then, body butters are body lotions are mandatory.
  • Has got rose oil and rose extracts, how great is that.

Cons of Fabindia Rose Fragrant and Gentle Bathing Bar:

  • Does not moisturize the skin, so body butters/body lotions are needed.

Will I Buy Fabindia Rose Fragrant and Gentle Bathing Bar Again?

I really love the fragrance of this particular Fabindia bathing bar, so I am going to keep buying it until I get the L’occitane  rose shower gel. :shy:

Do I Recommend Fabindia Rose Fragrant and Gentle Bathing Bar?

Yes, to all rose fragrance lovers, who don’t mind compensating the slight dryness imparted by the bathing bar with thick body lotions.

IMBB Rating:

Honestly if I were to compare the price and what I got, I would rate it as 4/5 ( and minus 1 for smelling of just 5 to 6 roses, I want to feel like I am around 100 roses). :smug: :smug:

              1. Yey Reeteeeeeeeeeeeekaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance:

  3. Great review Jomol! I have this and haven’t used it yet. But after reading your review, am tempted to go take a bath now! :makeup:

    1. Yesh….its great to bathe with it Preethi…… :makeup: :makeup: :makeup: :makeup: :makeup: :makeup: :makeup: :mirror: :mirror: :mirror: :mirror: :mirror:

  4. Well..Not-my-types.. :nonono: Am more into Citrus/Musk/Spicy flavours.. :phoolan: If you all dun laugh..wanna share a secret..I was regular user of a products meant for men called `Denim´ and still use hubby´s perfumes.. :shying:

          1. actualy i hate musky.. par musky chhod k i like citrusy, oceanic etc… more on the fresh side..
            more of axe types. iv use many axe deos 😀 😀 😀 😀

        1. Nehaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa……axe deo…. :shying: :shying: :shying: :shying: :shying: :shying: :shying: :shying: :shying: :shying: I like citrusy, flowery, and lemony flowers too :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot:

          1. lekin Neha…tell me one thing…woh jaisa ad mein they show…..girls following axed men…waise hota hai kya :hihi: :hihi: :hihi: :hihi: :hihi: :hihi: :hihi: :hihi: :hihi: :hihi: :hihi: when you spray axe

            1. hahaaaa no one follows me.. :dumb: :dumb: :dumb: :dumb: but judgemental frnds do keep blabbering why u use mens does ull confuse guys abt ur preferances
              and im like 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐 kuch bhiii!!
              me also love lemony ones.. even grassy ones and nowadays my nazar is on these new kinda perfumes that literally smell like spas… i forgot their names.. that day i went testing around i felt so fresh.. i think chanel also has one like that..

              1. Actually, as a fellow lover of men’s fragrances, let me give a little happy news byte here. Biologically speaking, women get more attracted to musky scents in general and men flock to flowery ones. That’s one reason why most men’s deos/perfumes smell musky and the ones for women are sweet smelling. It’s all about the attraction factor. :tongue: So, it’s quite alright to steal your brother’s Axe deodorant because you’re drawn to its smell. :toothygrin: And the next time some judgemental friends blabber, shove this little piece of intelligent information under their noses. :phoolan: :silly:

                1. Logical all the way JW… :clap: But once we are attracted to our bro/hubby´s deo/perfumes & use ’em on ourselves..Whos gonna be attracted to us musky beauties.. :stars:

  5. amidst 5 to 6 roses… hahaha sooo cuuuutee u are..!!! :teddy: :teddy: :teddy:
