This Cherry Mocha Bar was a Valentine’s special in Oriflame catalogue in February, which was paired along with Cherry and Mocha Hand Cream. The hand cream has already been reviewed by Uzma and I am reviewing the scented bar soap.
WHAT THE CATALOGUE SAYS ABOUT CHERRY AND MOCHA SCENTED SOAP BAR:
Cleansing becomes a feast for the senses with this wonderfully scented, exfoliating soap bar. Its gentle formulation and enticing aroma are perfect for a sensuous Valentine’s evening.
PRICE: Rs. 79 for 75 g.
INGREDIENTS LIST: No ingredients mentioned as such, cherry and mocha are the main ones.
MY TAKE ON CHERRY AND MOCHA SOAP:
The moment I got the soap, I opened it, expecting it to smell divine, but I twitched my nose with the strong smell that was supposed to be “enticing.” I don’t know if I am dumb and this is the way mocha smells, but in that case, I don’t like mocha also. This strong, “close to pungent” smelling bar does very good exfoliation though and that too not so gently and neither is it harsh. The bar has bits of dried cherry parts that are a little bit abrasive and upon working up a lather does a great job at exfoliation. Remarkably, the strong smell of mocha dies down during the first use itself, so that will not be a problem.
This soap does the scrubbing part efficiently, but I don’t think it is “gentler” enough to be used on the face because it tends to be a little on the abrasive side.
The soap does not dry out the skin like regular soaps, but neither it is very moisturizing and I did have to use body lotion after using it. Overall, I think I will go for it again since it decently does the job of exfoliating.
PROS OF Oriflame Cherry & Mocha Scented Soap Bar:
- A soap that very effectively exfoliates dead skin cells from the body.
- Does not cause major drying.
- Price is very reasonable.
Cons of Oriflame Cherry & Mocha Scented Soap Bar:
- I found the strong smell of mocha “repelling.”
- Exfoliation can be a little harsh if used on the face.
WILL I PUCHRASE IT AGAIN: Yes, because it does a good job of exfoliating.
IMBB STAR RATING: 3/5…..-2 for the repelling smell of mocha.
