The Bombay Store Cinnamon Soap Review

REVIEW: All About Spices, The Bombay Store Cinnamon Soap

Cinnamon has always been a favorite flavor of mine where essential oils, incense and handmade soaps are considered and this time on my trip to the Bombay Store, I got myself a bar of homemade Cinnamon soap. For those who aren’t familiar with the Bombay Store, lemme give you a “jhalak” of it 🙂

The Bombay Store was established in Bombay in the year 1905 as a concept of a “swadeshi store”. It has now branches inn many major cities of India like Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore, Aurangabad, Goa and Hyderabad. It offers apparels, accessories, home decor, wellness and other similar products that emphasize on Indian handicrafts, textile and other arts. It is a favorite with foreign tourists and Indians alike 🙂

It offers a huge range of aroma therapy oils, body oils, soaps and incenses and it goes without saying that this section is my fav in the whole store 🙂 This time I picked up the “All About Spices” soap in cinnamon flavour and I am totally in love with it. Cinnamon you see has always been my favorite spice and I love it’s scent and flavor in candles, incenses and oils. So I gave the cinnamon soap a shot this time.

Let me go about the review now.
The soap as expected smells all sweet cinnamony… It’s spicy and relaxing. People who like the cinnamon flavor must surely try out this treat. It’s yummy 🙂

Bombay store cinnamon soap

It has a very impressive list of ingredients that include many natural oils such as jojoba oil, almond oil, olive oil, coconut oil, palm oil, cinnamon oil and vitamin E. An image of the ingredient list is as follows:

Quite impressive huh? 🙂

The soap as such lathers well though not as much as commercial soaps but pretty much for a hand-made soap. It spreads it’s fragrance evenly when applied. But the fragrance doesn’t last very long 🙁

The soap has tiny exfoliating particles that could be ground cinnamon. It exfoliates well and could also turn out to be a bit abrasive if used with a lot pressure 🙁

It costs Rs.100/- for 100gms. It is a bit on the expensive side, but then it is a luxury soap 😉

The bar is of a regular soap size. The image indicates it:

The soap doesn’t dissolve much in water and that means it is expected to not get over soon 🙂

One very major advantage of this product is that it removed my MAYBELLINE COLOSSAL VOLUME MASCARA at one go! I mean everyone on IMBB here knows how the just isn’t easy to remove. I normally use olive oil to remove it, but this soap just removed it in one swipe!!! It was MAGIC! 😛

Even though the soap is loaded with oils, it isn’t really oily!!! I mean it might just be perfect for Normal skin. Mine being dry, my skin did require a teeny bit of moisturizer to be applied after my bath 🙂

In all I loved the product. It smells yummy, exfoliates my skin, doesn’t really dry my skin and lathers well… What else could I ask for more from my soap? 😀

Let me list out the PROs and CONs of the soap to summarize…

  3. Well reviewed Suma! :victory: I’ve seen the Bombay store at the Mumbai airport but from outside all I could see ws handicrafts..if I’d known there’s be soaps inside I would’ve stepped in for sure 😀

  4. I saw these soaps at Bombay store this past week and really got my hopes up that it was all natural but it wasn’t due to the ingredient listed as fragrance in it . Also I found this soap to be cheaper then the soaps at Karigar and Omved since it is not all natural so the quality of the soap is not going to be as great as an all natural bar of soap from elsewhere .
    I found at the shop they do have Khadi shampoos and conditioners which are not natural but can be compared to Fab India’s shampoos since both of them use chemicals .. :heart:

  5. bombay,delhi,bangalore,pune,hyderabad have so many nice shops selling so many nice products. we r unfortunate Calcuttans…. :headbang: :headbang:
